For the record, that second webcomic isn't obscure around here. It's a side project of Nan, a.k.a. Nan the Mysterious Romulan, a.k.a. winterbourne, a.k.a. The Ensign, a.k.a... well, you get the picture. (I could go on a while, though. I've known her through about 50 names.) She still does the NINJA! thing at the slightest provocation, and Sa'ar and I are still expected to give the proper response.

In other news, how did I not know there was a Ninja Day? I'll have to do something. After all, I'm not just a ninja, I'm ten ninjas.

Uh, yeah, even if I'd known that, in fact especially if I'd known that, I wouldn't read the comic. All of the old-timers out there can relax, I'm not going to start into a rant on the legendary Nate/Nan feud, but let's just say that it remains in full effect as far as I'm concerned.

So, any further ideas on what's doable that we can use to celebrate Day of the Ninja? We're at nine days and counting to go.

Okay, the big day is once again approaching! A week and a half to go! Any thoughts on what to do? I'm thinking of doing a Batman Begins altver (there are ninjas in it, and it's not scifi, so we won't be seeing one on the main site, will we), but what do you guys think?

I'll probably just go around saying "NINJA!" at random intervals, and lamenting the fact that no-one gets it.

Okay, it's a day early, but here's the official International Day of the Ninja avatar! I sort of wish we had an official exclamation for this holiday (like Aarrggh! for Talk Like A Pirate Day), but I suppose ai-yah! (or however you spell it) comes the closest.

I just noticed that your ninja avatar still has a Canadian patch on his shoulder. Cool.

Ninja Catbert? Hmmm...

Mordac: Do you recognize this?
Dilbert: My printer cable! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!?!
Catbert: Mordac! It is I, Catbert, the Evil Director of Human Resources. YOU MADE MY PRINTER A SHARED DEVICE!
Dilbert: Two wrongs made a right.
Dogbert: Welcome to my reality.

Love that scene. "Welcome to my reality" is a line that I'd use more often in Real Life if I thought I'd actually get away with it.

I thought the Canadian patch turned out nicely, but the shape of the head just looks stupid.

I was going to make it better, so that you could see a vague outline of actual sleeves there, but I didn't have time. Working in a post office + Christmas time = chaos. Parcels literally stacked as tall as me.

I may get around to doing so by this time next year...

Well, my attempt at a ninja Catbert sucked, so you'll just have to imagine it instead.

Hah, not bad. I'll have to remember to give it a whirl next year.
