Everyone is reading this (see link above). I just read it. Eureka. I seriously think this writer & I were separated at birth. In fact, in a few hours I will be calling my mother to ask if she produced two children without me knowing.
And while this person's updates are frequent & a lot more involved.... I do sincerely feel, if I had any motivation - and ability to draw sloppy pictures - I would give her stuff a run for its money. Very possibly.
Read the one on spiders though. She nails that.
