Mary Worth 282

Oh, Ian, how we've missed you and your subtly manipulating beard. "You wouldn't happen to have prepared an unnecessary dinner for me to eat after a long hard day of work, would you? I hope you didn't strain yourself by saving money in the self serve lane, did you? You haven't happened to be giving our credit card number out to strangers again, now have you?"

The great thing is that Toby is secretly delighted that she actually has planned an unnecessary extravagance. Something very special: $14.95 for a DVD about Scotland. It may not seem like much, but something tells me that this will be one birthday he'll never forget!

Change of subject: In case anyone hasn't noticed, a few days ago I added a new link on my Blog Links widget to Mary Worth, Style Maven. If you haven't visited yet, check it out! It is wonderful.

Yes Ian, you pretend that you don't want a lavish birthday present like a tantalus with crytal decanters full of wonderful, intoxicating whisky; whisky that you can sip after a hard day making sarcastic remarks to your students instead of attempting to educate them (what exactly is your field of expertise -Asshology?); whisky that will embolden you and loosen your tongue until your verbal abuse reduces Toby to helpless floods of tears. However this beautiful dream will not come to pass - instead you will helplessly clutch your second-hand DVD while the bailiffs auction your furniture.

Ian? Lint brush.

Ian just doesn't look like a professor. He looks more like some sort of pseudo sea captain. A lazy, lumpish pseudo sea captain. Pseudo captain of the Bum Boat, perhaps.

Ah...Ian, how we've missed you. After watching Mary and Toby spout their self-righteous schtick for months without you, it will be good to see them put down by your cruel, heartless, snide comments. That's why we love you...

I do have to comment though; so far, at least, you've been acting unnervingly....nice towards your idiot wife. Come on, Ian; I know you have at least one cruel insult in you! You can do it!
