Why Is Gladys Just Standing Around?

I've had a lot of dreams, goals and ambitions. One that I've never really told anyone was that I wanted to be a disc jockey for a radio station. I had it all planned out, I was going to have an overnight show--The Graveyard Shift--with my best friend and we were going to play what we wanted no matter what the station format (but to be honest it would lean alternative/rock). We'd have the midnight to 6 A.M. timeslot but the longer I let that dream languish on the vine, the more things changed. Radio stations rarely have original programming during the overnight hours anymore and if they do it's either pre-programmed stuff with no jockeys or syndicated stuff that come cheap because no one is listening at three in the morning for some reason.

I've often thought of creating a podcast but I don't know what I would talk about and I would like to do it with someone just so it's not me just rambling on and boring people with my own thoughts, ideas and opinions. I always think that's kind of sad and/or egotistical *cough*Rush Limbaugh*cough*. The other problem is that I don't really know how to do a podcast so someone would need to show me. I refuse to do a webcam show for...reasons...

It took me a moment to figure out the "joke" in today's strip. Brutus wants to get some exercise but is too lazy to walk up the stairs to get his shoes. Classic. I remember when Bringing Up Father did the exact same thing back in 1922.
