You remind me of the babe.
What babe?
The babe with the power.
What power?
The power of voodoo.
Who do?
You do.
Do what?
Remind me of the babe!

Apparently in my mind your future child looks like mr. mxyzptlk. Sorry.

No, that's probably about right. There's a history of fifth-dimensional impism in my family, and Alison's family can apparently trace their ancestry back to Martin Luther (Luthor?). Also, if the baby inherits my very large head, regular sized hats will probably fit much like the one in the picture.

But I digress. The picture is awfully sweet of you, seriously, man. We're actually talking about getting a wee frame for it and putting it in what will eventually become the baby's room. Alison loved it too; I must confess that I was confused as to why you drew a beer cooler with a pocket calculator attached to it, but she identified it straight away as a kiln. I suppose that suggests I don't take enough interest in her craft, but to be fair, she wouldn't have been able to identify a TARDIS without me pointing it out, either.

I know too well the pains of the large head dilemma. They shouldn't call them "one size fits all" they should call them "if your head doesn't fit into one of these hats you're a hideous freak and you should probably go jump off a bridge"

I'm super excited for you guys. Good luck.

(I didn't think you'd recognize the tardis disguised amongst the buildings. Kind of like a where's waldo just for justin)

Big baby fans here at the Apartment of Ideas! I was just looking for a place to ask where we can find more of AWE2999, and to say we live in San Diego, a later home of Earp, a block over from many sites of his old "establishments." But I meant to add: Angela Dawn, my wife's a descendant, through the "Arps" (Civil War-era split, complete with distinct spellings).
Congrats, enjoyed the personal bits.

Rad, it's a small world on the internet, hey?

All the Earpstuff that's actually complete (and even "complete" is a sketchy word, because Josh and I were working on revisions) are here:

More Wyatt2999 at some point, hopefully, but Josh has got to work a proper job to pay off his new house, and I'm hoping to knock out the last 25% of the first draft of a novel before Baby Mxyzptlk arrives in Summer 2010.
