"I Just Work Here" presents: Time To Decorate

Hey look: He got her to talk! ^_^

This is the last page of the current story arc! Yay! It's twice as big because I felt that splitting it into two pages really ruined the flow. Plus, you guys are awesome readers. Next week there will be another installment on Fraud Phantom Lore, then the week after that (Thanksgiving weekend I believe) will be the first page of the next story arc.

There is a New Vote Incentive on TopWebComics! It's a colored picture of Darren and Lizzie! We've been getting more votes to IJWH lately, and it shows! IJWH has jumped up over 100 places in the ranks this past month! Thank you all so much! Please keep voting, it really, really helps!

A QUICK WORD ABOUT THE US ELECTION: I personally have been devastated by the outcome of this election. We are a democracy, and I respect the will of the people and the process we have in the US... but this is hugely disappointing to me in a very deeply personal way. I have barely been able to eat or sleep. I want everyone to know all my comics will now and always strive for an inclusive and tolerant atmosphere. Sure, both comics will continue to explore difficult issues, but no matter what happens in our political system and no matter what kind of hate our "leaders" may disgorge, this comic will not allow that kind of ugliness to seep into the writing or tone of the strip. I want this comic to be entertaining, for sure; but I also want it to be a place where people feel welcome and included.

ALSO: IF YOU SEE SOMEONE STRUGGLING, REACH OUT TO THEM! The Suicide Prevention Lifeline has been trending because many people, especially women and minorities are feeling especially helpless in this uncertain time. If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed please call or direct them to 1-800-273-8255. There is also a website: http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ Please, please seek help if you are feeling overwhelmed, or reach out to someone if they appear to be overwhelmed. Talk to them. Give them a hug. The only certain way to make it through uncertain times is to do so together.
