Wanted: Magical Helper Elves to Wash Dishes and Put Stuff Away

Let, see; when we last tuned into the Life of Evan™ I had a cold and a hosed-up back (muscle spasms triggered by vigorous coughing). I spent Sunday through Tuesday in bed, with frequent applications of an ice pack and television.

Since then, things have gotten better. The cold is fading, and a couple trips to Dr. Chiropractor has my back returning to a non-hurting mode. I've been tired tired TIRED all week; you know how it is when you get home from work and have barely enough strength to assemble the next day's comic before falling into bed early and sleeping all night until Mr. Alarm wakes you for another round? Like that.

So here we are, early Saturday morning. Have you ever wondered how a Webcomic Artist/Advice Columnist spends his weekends? Probably not, but I'll tell you anyway! I usually don't post lists of Things To Do, but here's what I hope to accomplish today. I'll try to cross items off as I complete them, so those of you sitting at home and obsessively clicking "Refresh" will be able to track my progress:

Saturday's Tasks
Nine Vote Incentive Comics: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Newsletter Artwork
Prep Horoscopes, Tip of the Week, Column & send to Proofreading Minion
Monday's Comic

Yes, this is a Highly Optimistic list. But if I can get all this done today, I can spend Sunday working on a D&D dungeon. And trying to make my apartment stop looking like it's inhabited by someone who never, ever puts anything away or washes dishes.

ETA: Done with today's Task List! Woohoo!
