chagrined

My mom subscribes to the hardcopy Seattle PI plus the Sunday combined edition. Mostly that's fine with me, since it gives me the NYT crossword puzzle to work with my morning coffee, and I usually read an aggregate of the news online for my information fix.

However, since it is the Seattle Times that carries the comic Foxtrot, I only see the Sunday strips. So until Jason and Peter Fox showed up homeless on the front lawn in Pearls Before Swine, I'd completely missed out on the fact that Bill Amend stopped doing daily strips two months ago.

I don't always find Pearls Before Swine amusing, but I find the cross-over strips Steven Pastis does hilarious. There was a whole series of back-and-forth with Get Fuzzy a while ago.
