It’s that time of year, again! When your eyes are assaulted by red and pink in all the shop windows, and when the conditioning to associate chocolate with sex kicks into high gear. (Man, I could use some chocolate, right about now…)
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And in honor of that, we here are TMXS are taking off our lazy hat and putting on our re-purpose apron. That’s right, we are going to give you a countdown to the big day itself, when we will introduce our first new comic of 2015!
And it’s not that I’ve been totally lazy, if you’re wondering where the regular posts went. (Dare I flatter myself that you’ve wondered?) In the few months since regular updates stopped happening I moved countries, fulfilled two separate performance contracts in different states and saw a workshop production of a show that I’m writing go up across the pond. #humblebrag
But really the reason why I took a break was a nice dose of heartache. No, not another failed attempt at a relationship (although that happened, too), but some genuine TMXS-related heartache. We got rejected for a grant that would have made TMXS: The Series become reality right at your fingertips, and after riding that roller coaster of emotions it was time for a little break.
But like anyone who ignores the notion that insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, we’re back! After all, isn’t that what love is all about?
It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of this year. In fact, it’s been exactly a year since the relationship that sparked ThingsMyExSaid came to an end! What’s different since then? Well, I’m living in another country, studying in a graduate program (never intended to go to grad school… but that’s a story for another day), it’s the longest I’ve been single since I was about 11 (serial monogamist alert), and I’m about to board a plane to spend New Year’s Eve in a country I couldn’t have located on a map until about 3 months ago. And I just accidentally stirred my coffee with a dirty spoon, so now it tastes like onions. We can’t win ’em all.
But the little ticker on my homepage says there are about a thousand of you checking in when I air my and your dirty laundry here on the site every week. And that’s pretty damn cool. I’m having a lot of fun with you guys, and looking forward to a great 2014!
Here is a list of the Top Ten TMXS quotes of 2013. Some quotes are from the early days, that I think many of you may have missed. And some are just too good not to revisit. Cheers, and Happy New Year!
