Recently, I had the opportunity to contribute a guest strip for Zac Erickson‘s web comic, Team Jetpack 104. I thought it’d be cool to interview Zac and let Lethbridge in on his work. And since we’re both geeks, we did it using Google Wave (verdict: cool).
It’s getting to be that time of the season again, where rejected reindeer volunteer their time to drive folks inebriated with holiday cheer home, in their own cars no less.
Lethbridge’s “Operation Red Nose” kicks off November 27th and runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday up until New Years Eve. So if you plan on celebrating the holidays with drunken enthusiasm, ensure you get home safely by calling 403-320-4155. Or else chance coming home with me.
Zac Erickson, who’s from Raymond (I’ll forgive him), is the creator of a web comic called Team Jetpack 104. Now I’ve never met him in real life, but follow him on Twitter alongside a few other Lethbridge peeps.
He’s been striving to improve his art skills and it inspired me to make a strip for him. He hasn’t taken me up on that offer yet, but did gleefully accept the guest comic I drew! Here it is:
Edit Shoppe and modernegg are presenting the 2nd annual MADE this Friday. Both local and Southern Alberta vendors will be selling modern and stylish items the night of the Downtown Bright Lights Festival. It’s a great event to find some unique holiday gifts.
Today, yours truly met his future ex-wife, Lethbridge’s "So You Think You Can Dance Canada" superstar, Tara-Jean Popowich.
Now you may think I had this planned all along, but it was fate that brought us together! It just so happened that on the day when I got my license back oil changed, she was at Milestone Mazda receiving her prize of a Mazda 3 and signing autographs for small girls and old people.
Tara-Jean, perhaps one day we’ll get to polka. Until then, know that I am always watching you…
My liver can attest, I’m a connoisseur of beers. Imagine my delight when I discovered that Lethbridge has its own beer festival with over 100 types of domestic and international brews, probably including Old Style Pilsner, one of my dear favourites (among MANY others).
Tickets are only $10 in advance, available at The Wine Cavern. I’m so there.
