Jill is like a loaded gun in the children's piñata that is this clown cluster at the rehearsal.And I'm not sure if she's drunk or springing new universes out of her forehead. Cool.
Um, does Jill have cleavage in her back in that second panel?Also, I was so hoping the wedding would be today, for then Adrian and the guy she's marrying (forget his name, sorry) would have the same anniversary as me and my husband! Drat Jill and her drunken foolishness!
Here is evidence of why, in the real world, rehearsal dinners are, uh, dinners.I sure hope this won't jeopardize Jill's standing as a bridesmaid "tomorrow." Maybe Mary will have to fill in for her.
Doesn't Jill know Dr Jeff from the hospital?You know, the problem with Karen Moy and the Worthiverse is that she doesn't do "subtle". Everybody's the same degree of "bland and boring" until there's a villain and he/she's always off-the-charts BADD.
You know, I bet Jill would be a really fun roommate.
I can almost hear Mary's tut-tutting across the room, the Charterstone atmosphere will be *thick* with disapproval! On the upside, it'll give the good folk of Santa Royale something to talk about over the salmon squares at the next pool party (ladies, bring a plate).
Pure entropy. And why not?No one in the Maryverse is capable of love.
@TeacherPatti= Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! To celebrate, perhaps you might put on a lilac-colored, V-neck (front AND back!), dress and take a twirl around the Living Room with your mister in honor of Adrian & Scott's wedding. Pick some romantic music from the Charterstone Jukebox?Seriously, though--WHERE in blazes is Mary Worth!!???? Did she leave early? Is she throwing up in a bathroom stall somewhere (food poisoning!)? Does she not CARE that drunken Jill is making a major play for her man!? I'm terribly, terribly disappointed in Mary! Jill's behavior I expect, Mary's however...
Can we find a lampshade for Jill to wear on her head? I'd like to dance with her!
Seriously, Jill has stolen a page out of the Leroy Lockhorn playbook.Have they even had the dinner yet? Is there going to be dinner or is this one of those new fangled hors d'oeuvres & open bar rehearsal dinners?
Is anyone else as impressed as I am with the bewildered faces on all of the other dancers?
Mary is in the corner, blabbing to Adrian about her childhood friend, Cathy.
Vicki, thanks! That is an excellent idea! Perhaps we can walk along the beach and get a tingly feeling, too! Or is that just for first dates?
Adrian really is a terrible judge of people. That's what all of this amounts to in the end.Her husband, of course, will be forced to move her to the Valley, hours away from the likes of Confey, Black, and Charley.She'll be safer surrounded by vacant, grass-covered hills, in a lodge. Delilah is.
The woman is insane. I don't mean Jill. I mean Karen Moy. She probably lives alone in a padded cell somewhere and slips her story lines out with the lunch trays. That's why she has no idea what normal human interaction is like.
Yo, Adrian! Ya still feeling calm and happy?
Karen Moy has taught me to appreciate the subtleties of Marmaduke and The Family Circus.
I can't wait to read tomorrow's comic! This is going to be interesting :P
If Jill is supposed to be Adrian's best friend, I'd really hate to see the girl that made her life hell in high school!
Mary has green eyes in today's 2nd panel. I think that may be significant.
Emmy said...I can't wait to read tomorrow's comic! This is going to be interesting.Well, I have read it, and it is not. Jill's gonna pass out in the creamed spinach, and Adrian will stick up for her.
Jeff IS "quite the man!" Tall, ginger-haired, accomplished, and I find it significant that Mary only recently sweet-talked him with the word "special". Special. Fortunately, this one was drunk enough to draw attention from the real problem, but if Mary doesn't agree to change the way things are between them soon, Jeff just might be tempted by the next flirtatious blonde hospital administrator, to throw off Citizen Cane and dance!
I must say, food is not going to "soak up the alcohol," as Mary suggested. Jill's far too gone for that. Only time can help her now. Thankfully, in the Worthiverse, time is all we've got.
Maybe Jill will get into a car and pull an Aldo... that would almost certainly upstage dull Adrian and her lower-caste groom!
I find Mary's choice of words odd "...food to absorb the drink." Why not say to absorb the alcohol, as Alphie said. It might have been okay if Adrian had been saying, "We had our drinks, now it's time for food!" But she didn't. It just sounds weird.And I have now spent about five minutes contemplating Moy's dialogue and now I must shoot myself in the stomach.
If Karen Moy had ever attended an actual wedding, she would know that this sort of drunken spectacle is to be saved for the reception. She must think "rehearsal dinner" encompasses rehearsing many more activities than it really does.If Jill gets fired (or quits at Mountview's suggestion) who will stand up for Adrian over and over again?
This is one weird party! Drink & Dance...Eat Food later so you can "absorb your drink"? What the heck?The ladies are all wearing some variation of purple (except for Mary, who didn't get the memo). I think Jeff rather likes the attention from Jill. He's the MAN now, doncha' know!
Aldo, Rita, Jenna, Aldo, that guy who was chasing Richie's killer, Charley, Aldo, Aldo and so many others. All victims of demon alcohol in the Mary Worth universe.Jill, you are not that special.On the other hand, there is a strip in a parallel newspaper comics universe for Mary Worth ... um.. drunks. I hear its fun! (Plus, Adrian's not there!)
Has anyone else noticed that Ted Confey is there dancing with that blonde chick?
