The Greatest Used Book in History Continued: July 1988


This is the seventh installment of the celebrated diary within a used book I managed to save from a clearance event for “junk books” in a rundown warehouse of a library.  The journal is the story of an astonishing woman living in 1988 who just happens to also love her cats.  If you would like to enjoy her story from the beginning or catch up on some of her earlier entries, go to The Cat Lover’s Diary.


Next month’s Cat Diary ought to come a little quicker than normal.  I don’t have time to tease you with other content while I’m getting ready for the The Shadow Art Fair (July 16).  I have a cadre of stories and comics all queued up, though.  I won’t let anything interfere with regular updates.

About You Monsters Are People

Wisdom, wonderment and weird for everyone.

      You need to give people a reason to come back for more. I couldn’t post it all at once, that’d be too much too fast.

  4. This is maybe the most amazing post I’ve seen this week… Hysterical.

  5. Oh. my. god. that was freaking hilarious…

  6. Omigosh! Are you telling me you FOUND this book? I cannot believe someone would just give away her diary. Unless… they were cleaning up after her because she is a hoarder. Do you think this woman was a cat hoarder? Oh no! This is just too much. Cannot wait for the next installment.

    Love your comics, too.

    Glad you came to visit me today or I never would have found you!

    BAHAHAHA! Amazing. Love your humor. Thanks for stopping by the ol’ bloggy blog.

  10. What happens in the back room??!!

    Please please please post the next one, Posky!! :)

  11. “I ended up drawing my new eyebrows up way too far on my forehead” is hilarious. Also, Short CIrcuit 2? I hope this is not real, because that would mean that you’re a good writer, and not that someone this nutty existed.

    Oh my dear lord. Mr. Greggo winked and oinked at her? What does that even look and sound like? Because I am picturing a little two-step shuffle and tiny little velociraptor arms. But does he SAY “oink,” or “oink-oink,” or make a snorting or snuffling sound? Either way. How is this not a show yet?

    • Posky says:

      I imagine that he actually snorted at her but I can’t know for sure since I wasn’t there. I hope that’s how it all happened though.
