Over at Susan's blog last week, she shared some of her Terrific Tidbits, little bits of this and that to delight the artsy soul. One of Susan's posts featured Maira Kalman, and reading about Maira inspires me to share my similarly quirky favorite:
Roz Chast, the delightfully neurotic New Yorker cartoonist.

If you haven't yet met Roz, you can get better acquainted here.
And if you have a few minutes to spare, watch the above interview with Charles Osgood from CBS a few years back.
John and I have delighted in Roz's offbeat New Yorker cartoons for many years, and every new interview I find just makes me love her more.
"Millie's Gear Slips" appeared in the June 1, 1992 issue of The New Yorker. (Click on it to enlarge so you can read the text.)
Roz is a person whose thought process I can really relate to.
Strange and wonderful, all at once.

I'm taking a few days off-blog for family adventures.
Happy weekend to all!
