How to Talk to a Depressed Friend

Just to let you know how things are going, the novel is still selling, and has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon. Thanks to everyone who has helped make that happen. I have officially started writing the first draft of a follow-up. My hope is to have it out before Christmas, but I'm not going to rush it just to meet a schedule.

Also, Rick and I are both delighted with the response you've all had to his advice column. Thanks for your support.

Thanks as always for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Ok, panel one killed me today, more so than usual. ;)

Hulk-Eye FTW!

Very coincidental, I just got Lasek yesterday. Didn't turn out to give me Hulk-Eye though. I got stuck with Aquaman-Eye.

Any chance I can get a redo?

Rick delighted? Nnngbbdddaaaah! The success must surely be eating him up, no? Which would explain Meyer's delight, but still leaves the Rick paradox unresolved...

First! Still, the previous comic has to be some sort of record humor

Having read Rick's stuff now... I feel very worse for him. I'm sorry Rick.

I just bought my first e-book. Titled "Off to be the wizard". :)

Hulk eye...tee hee....

ALLRIGHT! A followup/sequel! Can't wait! When is the movie coming out?

I got "Laser Vision Correction" about a year ago. My eyesight's much better, but my laser vision still doesn't work.

I'm waiting for them to have a few more years of expirience with astigmatism before I sign up; let somebody else pay to be the guinea pig.
I try not to complain in detail to anybody about old age.
"It's hell getting old" or "my back says 'it's hell getting old'." is enough to let friends know what to expect (she won't be able to walk as fast today...or whatever) without giving the icky or unpleasant details that so repulse people who don't have them, and people who do, but still have dignity.

Read the book while on vacation - loved it. Excellent. Now I feel like I'm stalking Amazon waiting for the sequel. But don't rush it or I'll stalk you instead.

Book available on the play store yet?

May 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip

As a thirty-something, I'm stuck in that area where "when I was your age, we had to drive to the store to buy video games and then blow on the carts to get them to work" and "there won't be any Social Security by the time I'm old enough to collect." And I'm okay with that.

@FakeScott, actually, social security won't run out until around 2045, so you'll still get a couple years.
