The Bizarrotron shows a 3.7 weirdness level!*
This has been another dry month for reading. I think it's because the weather has been uncharacteristically nice, which means more time spent outdoors gardening etc than relaxing with a good book. And the only reason I've read these is because the office where I work has been transformed into a call centre, enabling me to read in what would be exceedingly boring breaks between calls.
22. The Days Are Just Packed, by Bill Watterson
One of my favourite strips in this book inspired this post about my reaction to Car's coma.
* The title comes from the strip on page 138 in which Calvin as Spaceman Spiff discovers a hideous alien known as a "Gurl" (otherwise known as Suzie Derkins). I know I shouldn't reproduce the strips here without permission, but I have linked the book titles to Play.com for ease of purchase to make up for it.
23. The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes, a Calvin and Hobbes Treasury by Bill Watterson
This treasury includes cartoons from The Revenge of the Baby-Sat and Scientific Progress Goes "Boink".
For your procrastinating pleasure, I have discovered a Calvin & Hobbes Wiki. There aren't a huge amount of entries yet, but it'll certainly keep you occupied for a fair while. Enjoy!
