“I think the hardest thing in life is to forgive. Hate is self destructive. If you hate somebody, you’re not hurting the person you hate, you’re hurting yourself. It’s a healing, actually, it’s a real healing…forgiveness.” ~ Louis Zamperini

Ever Wished That Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson Would Return to the Comics Page? Well, He Just Did.

Incredible!

Pearls Before Swine

Bill Watterson is the Bigfoot of cartooning.

He is legendary. He is reclusive. And like Bigfoot, there is really only one photo of him in existence. 

Few in the cartooning world have ever spoken to him. Even fewer have ever met him.

In fact, legend has it that when Steven Spielberg called to see if he wanted to make a movie, Bill wouldn’t even take the call.

I was traveling through Cleveland on a book tour, and I knew that he lived somewhere in the area. I also knew that he was working with Washington Post cartoonist Nick Galifianakis on a book about Cul de Sac cartoonist Richard Thompson’s art.

Nick Momrik's CrossFit Training

Murph-2014-WOD

“Murph”

  • 1 Mile Run
  • 100 Pull-ups
  • 200 Push-ups
  • 300 Air Squats
  • 1 Mile Run

* Break up the 100-200-300 however you want.

Definitely no weight vest for me. I don’t need to make a 40 minute workout any harder than it is. 😉 I wanted to go out conservative on the first mile this year and I sure did that. It was about an 8:20, but allowed me to get right into the middle part of the workout. Instead of going with 20 rounds of 5-10-15, I decided to go 4-8-12 this year for 25 rounds. I always die on the push-ups and that seems to allow me to continue through them. Headed out the door for the 2nd mile at 31:17, so I need to run the same pace as my first mile to beat…
