Came home from Oklahoma last night at around 3:30 in the morning. I stayed up another 45 minutes to check e-mail. (Why? Why? Why?) And then I woke up two and a half hours later to get ready for our garage sale.

We would've been home sooner, but Oklahoma has casinos. And well, we had to go. Melissa played the penny slot machines. I played blackjack. (Won $20 at my first table, lost $19 at my second table.) Brock watched. He likes his money safe and sound. Whereas, Melissa and I kept quoting Empire Records to each other:

Where's the money?
Joe, the money is gone.
Yeah, I know it's gone... but where's it gone to?
Atlantic City.
Atlantic City?... Is it coming back from Atlantic City?
Oh, I don't think so, Joe.
What's it doing in Atlantic City, Lucas?
Lucas, listen to me. I told Mitchell Beck that you forgot to deposit the money. I told Mitchell that the money was still here.
Joe, that's not true. It's in Atlantic City... I swear.
Shut up, sit down, and don't you move.
It could be in other cities by now...

Of course, the reason why we were there in the first place was the signing at Speeding Bullet Comics. The book tour continues. I love this store. Matt Price and everyone who works there is incredibly cool. Just a great experience all the way around. And we sold a ton of books. As in, we've got to get more books from the Viper office because we sold them all in Oklahoma. The event was mentioned in the Norman Transcript newspaper -- CLICK.

The comic book store has a cafe! I had a "Wonder Woman" sandwich. I'm convinced this is the greatest sandwich in the world: ham, swiss (I think), pineapple, lettuce, and cream cheese. Good.

After the signing, Matt took us to eat at Othello's. We had a great time, hanging out, talking comics, and eating more food.

We were treated so well. We're definitely going back to Speeding Bullet again... soon. How's Monday?

UPDATE: If you haven't been to Pop Syndicate, my weekly column is now online -- READ IT HERE. I haven't received any comments yet. I'd love to hear from you. I got some nice e-mails from a few people. Scott McCloud mentioned it on his blog. He's accepted my challenge. (You'd have to read my column to understand.)
