I want to thank Partners West again for sponsoring Unshelved this week. Something we've heard consistently is how grateful y'all are that we pick relevant sponsors. You won't see any X10 spy camera ads here. Speaking of which, what every happened to those? I guess webcams and cameraphones are so prevalent that we just don't need them anymore. I guess I just have to trust that someone is meeting the key social need of "taking secret photos of your sexy neighbor."

We don't tell our sponsors in advance what the actual strips are going to be, in part because we often don't know. I do wonder what they think when it turns out they've sponsored "Tamara is mad because Dewey ate Shrimp" week. Hopefully kind, renewing thoughts.

Ah well, I've put off drawing Sunday's strip long enough. Picking up the pen now...
