Our Sister Missionary friend is winging her way to the Land of the Morning Calm this week. In her honor, I thought I should run something to do with missionaries and Korea...even if it's the return from rather than arrival to AND a groaner to boot!
So tonight is that big motion picture award celebration thingy. We've seen a lot of the movies that have been nominated this year. I remember first when I was on my mission and then when I came home, I hadn't even heard of most of the films that were up for best picture. We had one movie, The First Vision, that we showed in the Gwangju Visitor's Center, and I think we saw The Sound of Music during the holidays at the MTC. Outside of that, our knowledge of what was going on in Hollywood was very limited!
Our ward changed meeting times at the first of the year. One mother of young kids said she was glad to have a later schedule; it meant her little ones took their naps during Sacrament Meeting. A mother of teenage boys responded that she, too, was glad of the time change, because that meant her kids were able to be awake for the meeting!
I was asked to come up with a cartoon to accompany an article about protecting yourself from being scammed online. OK, so the phishing joke is nothing new, I realize that. But I like the part about running off to become a Nigerian prince!
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the New Era and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
