Help Working Daze

Hi all:

Scott and I are continuously trying to make Working Daze as good as we can. It many ways its a labor of love for us as while we do get paid the amount we get is pretty much generated by add revenue which means when the economy takes a hit so do we.

It would be nice if loyal Working Daze readers could spread the word about us and tell a friend and have them tell a friend.

It also helps if people visit this blog and leave votes and comments on the web site.

We want Working Daze to thrill for a long time and it can with your support!

Also would you loyal reader want me to explore more of Dana's magical side?

Next week's working dazes

Hi all:

Next week Working Daze will take a turn away from the realism of the last two weeks and go for a bit of whacky fantasy.

Hopefully the readers will like it. I think they will.

Still questing for 1K followers

Due to good progress the quest for 1K followers for Roy has been extended to the end of the month.

If Roy does get 1K followers by then I will give away a few books to readers who comment about Roy's quest on this blog.

Roy really wants to be the fictional geek = of Ashton K.

Said it once and I'll say it again, "Roy may be fictional but he probably has more in common with most people than Ashton does," :)

Hi all:

My Niece Nati who is 1/2 the inspiration for Dana (and part the inspiration for Roy's feet) became a mom last night at 4am. Like everything else Dana does the delivery was quite efficient. So efficient the doctor barely got to the hospital before the baby was born. The baby Felipe (Nati lives in Costa Rica where she works for a big multinational company) and mom are doing fine.

Lot of emotion

Hey all. This toon created a lot of emotion and responses. Really it was only meant to show the folly of management and to make Working Daze a little more "timely". In a week or so we will have a nice fantasy week.

Getting a bit real

Hi all:

To kind of mirror actual life layoffs will be coming to Working Daze. Yes one character will be cut basically cause he is very replaceable mid-aged white guy who works hard but is nothing special. In other words an easy cut. Don't worry being the comics this will sort of hopefully end happily. Well sort of.

On another note still trying to get Roy 1000 followers (at least on twitter) though I am being flexible and also counting followers on this blog.

If this happens I will give away copies of some of my books. In today's world free stuff is good stuff.

So come on, if Ashton can get close to 2 million followers surely a fictional geek (who is many respects leads a life much closer to the norm than AK) can get 1K.

Powerful Geek Poll

A new fun poll to help determine who the world's most powerful "geek" is. This was inspired by the recent poll of most powerful celebrities where Ms. Jolie and Oprah were named in the top 2. (And president Obama was named in the top 50.)

I left these three off the poll as well I am not sure they qualify as geeks. Of course this poses a bigger question: who really is a geek?

Hey all:

One of the people who helped contribute to working daze as the real life partial inspiration to Roy got hurt pretty bad on Sunday. He was up on a ladder at his stepmother's house cutting down a branch with a chain saw. This real life Roy (we will call him Ron cause that's his name) succeeded in bringing down the branch, unfortunately (I think you can see where this is going) the branch also brought him down. He fell 20 ft, luckily, and luck is a very relative term here the chain saw didn't land on him.

Of course even without getting clocked by the saw he still received significant damage and had to be airlifted to a nearby trauma center. He is on the road to recovery now from: two broken heels, a broken ankle, a broken wrist (many bones in the wrist) and a couple of cracked vertebrate.

Feel free to post your "get well soon" wishes.

He is still texting and sending photos from his Iphone but finding it is very difficult with one hand.
