Mary Worth 100

Yes, yes, YES! I absolutely LOVE it that "Waiting for a Star to Fall" is THEIR SONG. I just got all giddy when I read this! It's new information. It makes sense, since Drew was the only man to teach Vera "how to really see the stars at night." And I love that Vera doesn't seem to be too thrilled at the coincidence that a song that gets absolutely ZERO air time on the radio these days just happens to be playing on the Junction Road Cafe jukebox. But guess what, Vera! It is now playing on the "Charterstone Jukebox" in the right-hand column of this blog as well (click play to enjoy Drew and Vera's song). Now we can all listen to YOUR song as we enjoy Mary Worth every morning -- and watch you suffer through your alleged relationship with Dr. Drew Corey!

I loved this morning's strip. What a great way to celebrate my 100th Mary Worth post. Speaking of which, thank you dear reader for your kind indulgence of my joyful obsession.

I just posted this over at the Comics Curmudgeon, but wanted to share it with my dear readers here:

'The brilliance of “Waiting for a Star to Fall” as Drew and Vera’s song is that it is featured in two powerful films: Three Men and a Little Lady and Look Who’s Talking Too. Which I’m sure are their two favorite movies (I know they’re mine)! And both happen to be sequels, just like we’re now reading the Drew and Vera SEQUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea how many layers to this story you could discover on a slow day. But it was either this or “pull and Aldo.” Thank you, Mary Worth, for giving me a reason to live. Albeit a pretty flimsy reason.

Congratulations on your 100th post!

I really enjoy your blog, and especially appreciate the fact that you are keeping this a family-safe site.

May you have many thousands more posts! :-)

I am so excited that you posted the song, because I would have assumed the lyrics were just random and made-up, when in fact they are part of THE WORST LOVE SONG IMAGINABLE. In other words, an absolutely perfect choice for Drew and Vera.
