vern + lettuce go off their trolley



I was a bit rough this morning after a huge Thanksgiving dinner up in Camden last night with a pack of Americans. So it was nice to wake up to news of a lovely review of the DFC by 9-year-old Molly Bruton on the Forbidden Planet blog here. She lists Vern and Lettuce as one of her three 'favourite favourites':

Why do you like Vern & Lettuce so much?
The characters are great. Fat sheep playing a Tuba and a bunny with lots of little bunnies following her around. Very funny. I love the colours of the artwork. And I love little things like the swirly dotty fleece on Vern and the patterns on Lettuce's dress.


Tom Spurgeon on the Comics Reporter also gives them a little plug here.

And a nice description from fellow DFC man James Turner (eruditebaboon): Vern and Lettuce is absolutely the cutest strip in the comic and I love the colours - reading always makes me feel like I'm tucked up under a duvet, drinking hot chocolate.

Hooray! It's very tempting to go back under the duvet with hot chocolate, but will resist...

I just found out that Amazon UK are offering a four-comic DFC subscription gift pack for £12. Think: Christmas prezzies! :-D

Oh how I wish the exchange rate from Australian dollars to pounds wasn't so crap. I also wish I had money in the first place. I really want to get a DFC subscription, but alas.

Darn! Well, the exchange rates are flying around at the moment, maybe things will change! All of a sudden my pounds are worth less in America but suddenly my American bank account is worth something, when I had abandoned it for lost.

I doubt it'll change and even if it does it will have to be dramatic, since a pound is worth about $3 over here. But hopefully one day I will be able to afford British goods and wares.

Good for you, Sarah! The Spurge is hard to please.
I hung out with Solla and Sindri last night, and made some really disastrous-looking (but tasty) quesadillas. No hangover, but the blow to my culinary pride was a deep one.

Cool! Ah, I find Mexican food always seems to fall apart, but loses none of the taste for the mess. :-D We had a Bryn Mawr party, with some real characters. I'll have to post about them, maybe tomorrow.

The first 1/3 of that image looks pretty sordid when your work Mac loads it slowly! I got quite a shock!

Ooo! Well spotted, you! I didn't know about that one! Yes, do that! :-D

Those were the most lovely recommendations you could have wished for, I reckon!

To my shame, I have never read Vern and Lettuce.

Hi, Nessa! Doing well, thanks! It's all busy busy at the moment, but a good kind of busy. :-) And nice and warm in my wonderfully knitted beret. What about you?
