Not sure if Mary's expression in panel 2 stems from horror, disbelief, or just plan jealousy. She's twitterpated on some level, though.
Ah, judging from Mary's expression, there will be some conflict in the wedding planning process. I hope Jill Black uses a remote starter for her car.
I'm glad they changed tables and got a booth. So much more privacy.
After a story featuring abandonment issues, alcoholism, vigilantism and that like--which managed nonetheless to be dull as dishwater--I was so disappointed that the new story seems to be about nothing more than planning a wedding. My first thought was, what's duller than dishwater? Then I realized that we hadn't seen all that much of Mary in the last few months and that this would be her time to shine (and be in our face every day). And today, after our protagonists have sipped hot beverages and moved pasty foods around their plates for only one week, I feel certain that CONFLICT has been introduced. A lady with wedding planning experience when this is supposed to be Mary's time to shine? I don't think so! This is going to be good!
Two wedding planners go in, only one comes out.
"Jill Black". A new character with the same WASPy, bland, generic name as the rest of the characters in this strip. Now, I do happen to sorta like the name "Jill" because it is my real name, (what? you thought "phoebes" was my real name") but, I mean, "Jill Black"? Why not "Jill O'Malley"? Or "Jill Goldstein"? Or "Jill Petrocelli"? Or even "Jill WONG"? This will be another, tired Mary Worth story. But, if you all are ready, so am I.
As I predicted, Adrian's hair has reverted somewhat to its old style, after having morphed yesterday. Am I psychic or what? ;-)
I cannot wait to meet Jill Black, with a worn copy of MODERN BRIDE tucked under her arm.
I'm not at all surprised to know that Adrian is overwhelmed with the details of her wedding. Everything overwhelms Adrian. I only hope the couple adopts a goldfish or a potted fern before they start a family.
It's rumored that Jill Black, hospital administrator, was sneaking around with Hospital Hi-Fi, which is why Hospital Hi-Fi's wife left him. That's why Hospital Hi-Fi lives in an apartment in the Cracked Plaster district.
@phoebes: Jill Black could actually be black. Wouldn't that be perfectly offensive?
Am I the only one who finds this about the most excruciatingly boring storyline imaginable? Where's the dramatic tension? Where are the vigilantes? Or the ham sandwiches? It's not even fun boring - it's BORING boring. I'm starting to wish those seagulls would come peck out my eyes and put me out of my misery.
@phoebes and Wanders - Oh, I'm pretty sure Jill Black will be white as rice. I think if she were at all ethnic Mary wouldn't be so vague as to say "doesn't she work in administration?" She'd be all, "Oh, you mean that BLACK woman who works in Purchasing!? She'd have stared that non-white gal down daily in the cafeteria and kept a written account of every mistake the poor woman had ever made! No, Santa Royale just doesn't allow these type citizens. Not gonna' happen. Period.
Thank goodness they're imaginary-buttering something for their empty plates, because Adrian's elbow is in her plate.Jill Black is going to be had news for this wedding. She's going to take that goth theme even further than Adrian ever did. I mean, "Jill Black." That has to be a harbinger of bad news.
I believe that Mary is buttering her hand.
Q: Do you know Jill Black at the hospital?A: No, but if you hum a few bars....
Good one, Vicki@1.03p.
Why the "experience"?Jill Black has been married nine times.Meddling powers: activate.
i think adrian told people she was liza minelli thats why they changed her table.
this is totally unrelated but yesterday was the last day for "Cathy" and I heard that she will be retiring to a Condo in Santa Royale.
"no Mary, she's not part of the administration; she's Scott's ex-wife."No the story could really go somewhere from that point!
So if Jill Black is actually black, would she often appear to be blue?
Today's comments alone are far more intriguing than this storyline will be on its most interesting day.
