Four score and seven years ago. May 21, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Seven years ago today I was a year out of college and still trying to write the next great fantasy novel. Seven years ago today I was waiting tables at a Boston jazz club and becoming convinced that smooth jazz does more damage to one's ears than heavy metal. Seven years ago today I was trying to figure out what the hell to do with the rest of my life.

I had no idea that seven years ago today, when the very first strip of Dominic Deegan went online at Keenspace, that I would be one of the luckiest, most blessed nerds in the world and I have each and every one of you to thank for making the last seven years the greatest of my life.

And thanks for turning me away from working on that novel. It was awful. Really, really awful. Only two people ever got through the whole thing. Even one of my parents couldn't get past the first ten pages.

Anyway, Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire is seven years old today. You're all the greatest readers in the world and I hope I've done my best to let you all know how grateful I am.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
