It’s the week before Christmas, the now nearly-traditional time of year when Bear In Mind updates daily for five days at no extra cost to you, dear reader.

This year, to tie in efficiently with the current storyline, we’ll be finding out about new character Jenny and her imaginary friend, in strips based on a childrens’ book I wrote in college.

For those of you not particularly interested, you can sit back, pay no attention for the rest of the week, and simply check in next Monday for the regular update instead. Everyone else can come back tomorrow for part 2 to see what lazy rhymes I conjured up to compare with last year’s. Don’t say I never give you anything.
