Sometimes I feel this way, being a cartoonist. Then I remember that I often work very hard and work long hours…. I simply REALLY enjoy it.
As Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain wrote:
“What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn’t have done it.
Who was it who said, “Blessed is the man who has found his work”? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work–not somebody else’s work. The work that is really a man’s own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man’s work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world. The fellows who groan and sweat under the weary load of toil that they bear never can hope to do anything great. How can they when their souls are in a ferment of revolt against the employment of their hands and brains? The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great.”
@War Pig, you sum it up perfectly! :)
I’m actually quite surprized that Labor day also fell on September 6 back in 2004. Will the same thing happen for those events with sneakier dates, like Easter?
Oh, right. These guys don’t do easter. Well, the date of the solistice is also pretty variable.
And before I forget again, the links on the right are a bit misleading. “The first strip” links to the index page (showing today’s strip)
@Frank, yeah, it was neat to start the strip on the same date and day of the week, what nice luck that it fell on the same day. :)
Link is fixed. Sorry about that.
