Mary Worth 1,135

What, we missed the scene where Gina tricked Team Manager into disclosing the hotel? I feel ripped off. If there's one thing I don't get enough of in this strip, it's watching people talk on the phone. Fortunately, we at least get to see her leave a message at the Hilton.

Does anyone remember this strip from September 19?

um. Can we discuss Gina's purple jumpsuit? My word.

Combine that with the ponytail - how could Bobby possibly resist?!

Punky said...

Liz, that jumpsuit is the exact shade that Mary Worth women wear when they Mean Business. Remember our old friend Jill? http://tinyurl.com/6ja3skh And let's not forget Liza with a Z! http://tinyurl.com/3lx4gqy

Gina needs a job as a spokesman for a majot cell carrier. All she does is hang on her phone.

Punky@9:12 a.m. nailed it - the wardrobes of women in the Worthiverse are heavy on purple. I just figured that Giella has a limited set of colors. Drapes and cakes are always a sickening shade of pink.

Like Wanders, I am ticked off that we didn't see Gina extract the Hilton info. What gives, Karen Moy, and how much did Hilton pay for the product placement?!

We've spent weeks hearing Gina's life story, and nearly a week on her fruitless conversation with the Team Manager. Would it have been too much to slip in one line telling us HOW Gina found out at which hotel the team will be staying? "Now that I know...." is truly a cop out.

Goodness, all this "sleuthing" has cause Gina to lose a good bit of weight. Lets hope the Santa Royale Hilton has a buffet she can crash

The cop outs flourish, nay, thrive in Santa Royale.

Has Mary's Meddling Madness completely dissolved, or is she just waiting to swoop in as Hina gets arrested for stalking, shouting "I told you so!"

I thought it was common knowledge that Santa Royale has but one hotel.

I thought Gina was going to take more direct approach.
Calling Team Manager and Hotel and leaving messages seems pretty passive-aggressive to me. Camping out at Arena would probably be better.
Remember, Gina. Listen to Mary, she's always right.

Are things changing in the Worthiverse? Gina's outside by herself, she's not wearing her waitress uniform and ignoring her customers, the hotel is not called Hotel...


Oh, wait, she still has the white scrunchy.

Ahhh Wanders. The "in two days" comment that Gina made about Bobby's team playing in Santa Royale are two "WORTH DAYS" which, as we all know, can equal months of regular time outside of the MW Time Warp.

Hey, how do you think these strips are made. Does Moy send a page of horribly boring text to Giella with instructions on what to draw, or is Giella left to his own devices?
Anyone?
Anyone?

September 19th

Gina: Mrs. Roper wants her jumpsuit back.

Gina: Bobby's soccer team's management company's employee wants his grey cement books back.

Not that Buffalo is the place to spot trends, but this is one of many blogs I found featuring celebs wearing jumpsuits: http://blogs.buffalonews.com/popstand/2011/01/what-celebrities-are-wearing-jumpsuits.html

Put purple + jumpsuit together, and what do you have? An outfit in which it is impossible to use a public restroom, no matter how trendy it is.

KitKat said...

trixietrudy@1:56 p.m., thanks for the link. We can add Gina Jiminiz/Baroni/Jiminiz to that list when she becomes a true celebrity (after the BIG GAME). Your comment reminded me of the royal blue jumpsuit I had back in the day. It certainly did present logistical difficulties.

TG said...

Trixietrudy, run away from any fashion advice that comes out of Buffalo. This city makes Gina look like Anna Wintour. ;)

Since the storyline is just flowing right along, I'd say by Christmas we'll be ready to move on to Gina finally talking to Bobby.

What we need is Gina to be more like Liza

Are all Mary Worth Women desperate or just women in general.
