Another MW technology jab. Oh what can we do?! Here's an idea--the guy on the phone has a pine in his hand and a piece of paepr in front of him. Figure it out oh dull knife!The Hilton appears to have been designed by the same architect as designed DINER. I noticed the styling with the desk and picture falling in one direction, while the front desk falls the other way--that or HILTON was built on a fault line.
CURSES! If only there was another way to leave someone a message!
I have never heard someone say "wouldn't you know" without it being patently obvious to all the said person was lying.And "Now, of all times" is that same liar, laughing at your helplessness.Somewhere, a burly Cap McHamfist is smirking and evil smirk.
I'm concerned that after at least three days without a cup of joe to be seen, following all that coffee binging over weeks and weeks, Gina will develop a splitting headache due to caffeine withdrawal. That's not healthy and it makes you grumpy. Gina, you sure don't want to be grumpy when you reunite with your crush after all these years. Why don't you get off that bench and walk across the street into the Hilton. I'm sure breakfast is still being served and you can refuel. OMG! I think I just solved Gina's other problem!
The Hilton of Santa Royale where the guests are able to check in at the front desk without dealing with those pesky computers. They have made progress however, by recently graduating from inkwells and quill pens to those newfangled ballpoints.
The hotel guests are leaving in droves! Bad cable TV, no voicemail, bedbugs? The place is a dump!
I haven't seen a physical guest book of that sort in a hotel in years! They probably never did have a real message system.I'm still waiting for Jill Black to show up and fix everything for her baby brother and his girl.
I'm "down" with puns!
'Now of all times'??!! Does this desk clerk already have knowledge of Gina's failed attempts at contacting Bobby?? Ah, the whole city is in on it, Bobby probably already knows and is cowering under his hotel room desk.Hahahaha - my wv is kinsie - perhaps as in Milhone, the infamous detective from those alphabet murder mysteries - maybe Gina needs to hire her!
Where did 'pine' come from? let's try 'pen', although even use of a pine would be more helpful to speed up this 'plot'..
Translation of "our voice mail for our guest is temporarily down" (judging from the backwardness of the front desk):The bellboy called in sick today and we can't spare anyone one else from our staff to run around the hotel delivering messages in person.
The famous New York Blazes professional soccer team is in town and the city of Santa Royale,a vetitable soccer hotbed, is in a tizzy. There hasn't been this much excitement since Will Rogers did rope tricks at the senior center. "Now of all times", indeed.
What is it with all of the carnivorous plants in the Worthiverse, reaching out for unsuspecting people?Will it ever occur to Hina that she could simply hang out in Lobby waiting for Team Bus to pull up? Or wait outside Stadium, maybe holding Sign with her name on it (to make it easier for Mobster to find her) or standing on Skateboard so Bobby, awash in nostalgia, will immediately recognize her and sweep her off her feet into a lifetime of love?--Beagle Vet
I assume that with all of Gina's detective work, she never found a Facebook, Myspace or Twitter for Bobby, huh? Drat all this newfangled technology!
Oh, what a cruel twist of fate that hath been dealt! Just when we think Gina might have found a loophole, Karen Moy has to throw a spanner in the works. *melodramatic 1940s character* Curses, Karen Moy, curses!Maybe Gina will go to the hotel, incognito, as a chambermaid. Why do I have the feeling that Gina's attempts at trying to get a hold of Bobby Black will be reminiscent of "I Love Lucy" (when she was in Beverly Hills).VW: "worchili," a new delicacy available at Diner! You can order it, but you'll never get it, especially if ol' Gina is at the helm!
I can't wait for the REAL story- when it is revealed that Soccer Team Manager is actually Wilbur Weston's long lost brother, Filbert Feston!
I don't usually comment on this kind of thing, but man, Hotel Clerk sure got hit with the ugly stick! If I were checking in, I'd run the other way, not ring that bell that's right out of a 30s movie. Last time we saw the inside of a hospital room, too (when Jill was shirking her duties to text her LUVR), the equipment looked like it hadn't been updated since the invention of penicillin. I've got it: this comic is written for a very specific demographic: dead people.
@Dave in Parma: ...and here I thought perhaps "pine" was slang for a pencil, and I just wasn't "down" with the lingo.
Memo to Guido Hamfist, New York Blazes Team Manager: The Santa Royale Hilton just won't cut it. Try another place of lodging. How about the Bates Motel?
I was foolishly trying to think if the Blazes were a big enuf deal to have to enter Hotel stealthily. Then I remembered being in a hotel in NY when the San Francisco Giants were checking in. They filled Lobby- they were huge- and they were all exquisitely dressed. Will the Blazes be stylish, or will they just have on their uniforms? I'm off to my 12 step comic addiction meeting now.
Meg, I was in the Four Seasons in Pentagon City last year and the same thing happened to me with he Green Bay Packers. Then Clay Matthews and four office other giants got on the elevator wih me. I thought the cable would snap!
meg@2:18 p.m., not only will the Blazes be wearing uniforms (and peculiar ones at that), they'll all be carrying a soccer ball. Maybe they'll even be wearing one of those Blazes caps that Team Manager pulled on.
Anonymous@2:28- are you the Anon from a few days ago wondering about 'Hina'? If so, it's because a G or J in Spanish pronunciation would be pronounced as 'H'- think Jose. If not, have a nice day!
@KitKat: I had to laugh after reading your post from a bad visual I got. I tied it to the song my 5 and 7 year olds have been running around the house singing (and lauging uncontrollably) after hearing on an oldies radio station: "He Wears Short Shorts".This strip is dated enough that Bobby and the Blazes (not to be confused with bennie and the Jets) could easily take the field in short shorts. Hina's jumpsuit wouldn't seem so out of date then either.
Sorry, Dave, jumpsuits are 'on trend' according to the fashionistas.WV: ofileth- Ofileth of Mary Worth, when will this storyline end?
this strip is so outdated if someting happens to the soccer ball they will comeon the field with a patch and bicycle pump to fix it.
Looks like a few hotel guests died and are walking toward "the light"
My index finger is not twice as long as my pinky, nor is it longer than my middle finger.
At first glance I thought that one guy was carrying the purple-dress lady. Then I thought she looks too small and wondered if it was not a real lady, but rather some kind of um,..doll.
