Gift Shop

Thursday, December 24, 1998

Well, the holidays are here. We've been busier than usual as a result, doing the Christmas shopping and so on, and consequently I haven't been able to spend very much time on content for the website. In fact, all I really have this week is the next chapter in the Empty City, but for those of you following it as I put it up, you get to read two chapters this week. First, there's Chapter 65 (in which Bill tells the Three about time travel policy), but we've also caught up with Chapter 66 (in which Doug robs a bank with an Atomic Bomb), which I put up a long time ago as a sample from the book.

With the arrival of the holidays, we've started giving away copies of Proton, this year's holiday gift, and I'm happy to note that people seem to like it a lot. We're behind schedule as far as mailing out the freebies, but since TSI is closing down for the holidays, we'll have plenty of time to tackle that project next week. If you don't get one from us in person, and aren't a member of the Wunderland Boosters Club, then be sure to visit our gift shop in one week, when it becomes available as a standard Looney Labs product.

In other news, I was notified this week that the online magazine Pyramid (from Steve Jackson Games) will be publishing my article on playing Magic with a single deck, and I'm even going to get paid for it!

Also, after suffering through 3 days of headaches, I'm happy to say I'm caffeine-free once again. And since I also shaved off my goatee this week, the little cartoon I used for the 11/5/98 update is more appropriate this week than it was when I drew it.

Anyway, I've still got some wrapping to do, so I need to get this update finished up as quickly as possible. Here's hoping you all have wunderful holidays!

It snowed! (We in the Washington DC area hardly ever have a white Christmas...)
I think the real moral of the Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol" is not so much about Christmas itself, but about the importance of being able to change your mind and even your way of life, no matter how old you are.
Another holiday classic, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", shows us the stupidity and tyranny of prohibition. When the Bergermeister Meister Berger outlaws toys, Santa becomes a criminal. He disobeys the unjust laws, distributing toys despite the threat of imprisonment, eventually being forced to flee to the North Pole as a result.

This week's film: None
