Mary Worth 1,118

When I saw panel 1 (above), I was worried that Gina had actually started her online search for Bobby Black. But then I saw panel 2, and was relieved to see she was still just thinking about starting.

Today's Full Strip

no one commented all day?. Are you all out helping Gina look for Bobby Black?

Most of today's comments are on yesterday's entry. We couldn't wait for Wanders. :D

You know what Gina needs? She needs a psychic to help her find Bobby. Wouldn't a psychic in Mary Worth be fun?

Nathan said...

Birdie--

If you remember, we've actually already had a psychic in Mary Worth. She was an old lady whose psychic abilities and advice-dispensing ways made Mary Worth briefly jealous ("I won't let petty jealousy keep me from being the kind, considerate person I know I am!" says Mary in perhaps one of the best lines to grace the Mary Worth corpus so far). Later, she advised Mary to heed her dreams and rush off to Vietnam to save Jeff by telling his doctor's to try a "wider course of antibiotics."

Those were the days, I tell you! Meddling back then meant something! Back in the day, we got deathly pacing, dull storylines, inaccurate drawings, and painfully-long stories and we LIKED it, durn it! These young-uns just don't understand! Up with Bonnie Prince Charlie! Down with the Hanoverian Brood! Go Crusaders!

Nathan, I'm in the rockin' chair right next to ya! I totally agree...when I was a 9-year old trying to decode the mysterious world of grown-ups, I spent hours lying on the floor, propped on my elbows, studying Sundays' "Winnie Winkle," "Judge Parker," "A-3G" and "Mary Worth," and never found them too slow-moving. Of course, I never decoded the mysteries of grown-ups, either.

I was so enchanted by how hugely wide the sidewalks of Santa Royale are that I never even noticed the man hanging next to Gina in COFFEE.

Elaine said...

That looks like a tiny man in a yellow suit walking outside of Coffee! Is he looking for those tiny horses we used to see?

@birdie - I think we all know what Gina needs, and it involves a swift kick in the pants! Gina, get started already!

The wit and wisdom that flow from the fingers of the participants on this blog CANNOT always wait for Wanders to get his act together to post a daily page.

After reading Mary first thing in the morning, most of us click on this blog, and if Wanders hasn't posted, we comment on whatever's still up.

Now, I realise that Wanders does indeed have a wife and kids and a job,as well as a "life", but, we must have our daily fix of Wanders-wit in a timely fashion. Hear that, Wanders?

I think that in order to pay her tuition at College, Gina has to work two jobs. One is, of course, at Diner, and I think she also waitresses at Coffee. Here we see her working as hard at Coffee as she works at Diner.

A funny thing happened. After reading yesterday's installment, I fell asleep drooling at my PC and short-circuited my keyboard.

Anyhoo, she's found him! And Saturday's strip will undoubtedly be the rest of the article, which likely features a line about his wife and three kids. Cue the Price is Right losing horn sound. "Sorry, Gina, you've lost the Showcase Showdown!"

Except it says he's among the most eligible, on AND off the field. Shuddering to think how one is "eligible" on the soccer field.

BTW, not a bad depiction of a traditional soccer ball by Giella. At least it's not one of the more modern ones that looks like it's covered by maxi-pads.

Is that Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory in the green shirt, shooting ocular daggers at Gina for her outburst?

The guy sitting across from Gina is Bobby.

Toots McGee said...

TG, yes, the Price is right Bum bum ba bum

TG said...

See, Beagle Vet, that's how well I read this strip. I pretty much just skim.

Toots, that sound is the soundtrack to Gina's entire life. Play it after every MW strip featuring her and it goes perfectly.
