Why am I so unjazzed about the anxiety here? Could it possibly be related to the glacial pace?
911 emergency operator: "Try to stay calm, Ma'am. You aren't making any sense. Emily Smith has long hair."
Let's hope the police can get there before Thuggy forces Emily to paint her nails a garish color. I mean,if he'll cut her hair who's to say what this monster will do next?
911 operator: "OK, ma'am, you say she's well behaved, well groomed, under the protectiveness of a guardian, and eating free rainbow swirl ice cream at Diner? We'll sent a SWAT team over right away." (click)
I are so distracted by the Mary signal, I almost forgot:Happy Holidays to you crazy kids in Worthville!
Now I know why Mcthuggy looks so sad! He is having just an impossible time pursuing that calling of hair stylist, given his churlish looks.So he is forced to practice on stolen children.It's a Festivus miracle; I feel for him!
Can't wait for Mary to pause her 911 call and turn to the readers for tomorrow's "Emily is currently still kidnapped, but you have a Merry Christmas!" strip.
911: "oh, lady, is that the place that's giving away free samples of Rainbow Swirlice cream? I highly doubt a kidnapper would go there with his victim. But,hey... you have a nice day." Click. (and Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks for all the laughs!)
Merry Christmas to all of us in Maryland...particularly you, Wanders, who makes it all happen. And a Merry Happy to Mrs. Wanders...heaven knows how she puts up with your obsession. And with us.
Merry Christmas to All! And may each one of us be young at heart today, a spring chicken, like Dr. Jeff.
Well, doesn't that just take the kelk!No news of Emily, and Giella is so cheap, he has taken McThuggy's jacket and Emily's sweater, and now Detective and Mrs. Dr. Adrian Cory are wearing them.And what is Mary serving as Christmas dinner? It seems to be some ultra thick gravy (now with extra Flak) poured over toast and tater tots. Note to self: reply to Mary's NYE invite with regrets.
Since Wanders is having too good a time celebrating Christmas to come here to snark about MW today, I guess we have to do it.I really had a (obviously vain) hope that today's storyline would be the cops invading the diner sorta like they did the "SantaRoyaleMart" in the drug bust, and free Emily Smith and return her to her family. Mary could take credit and we'd move past this dull story right into the next dull story in record time.Alas, didn't happen. Instead we get stale lines from author Taylor Caldwell (how many readers have read her books? I have, actually)and the family (or look-alikes) of Dr Jeff celebrating Xmas at a table covered with vile looking food.So, this story could take another three months to play out. Yuck.
This holiday I am grateful for many things, especially Wanders' daily gifts to all Mary-philes. I hope you all have a joyous holiday dinner of gravy covered salmon squares!Is it me, or does Adrian look defeated and resigned? Marriage must ended her buzzy feelings. And what is hanging from her husband's lapel?
Merry Xmas all!Had to laugh on opening my gifts after the 'Luddite' story line this year: my wife got me an amazon Kindle Touch!
um....Mary, what about the baby Jesus? Could you not even give the Savior's birth a mention on Christmas Day?
Merry Christmas! I wish you all happiness, and health, and never having to eat a Worth-esque Christmas dinner of brown things in brown sauce.
Remember, it's such a magical season that you can forget about kidnapped little girls and high tension situations in the diner. Just go home and bake shades of brown. Recite as many platitudes as you can, occupying air space with your thought balloons, not letting anyone else into the "conversation."
Happy Boxing Day, everyone! To no one's surprise, we're back at Diner, where a manager on duty apparently is AWOL. How else would patron Mary have invaded the kitchen (note how lovingly she cradles her phone!) while inept waitress Bree bankrupts the establishment by promising rainbow swirl ice cream "on the house"?As the year winds down, I'm wondering why Karen Moy has banished the formerly regular denizens of the Worthiverse (Professor Chinbeard, Wilbur and Dawn Weston, Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson? etc.) to comic-strip limbo. Will they ever be seen again?
KitKat is right... Mary is being a little weird with her phone there. Jeff must have made her PROMISE to be careful and not drop it, or run off and leave it anywhere! And Bree, well...she is just going to facetouch until the cops arrive. I was thinking if worse gets to worse the cook could fling some hot grease at Thuggy. Goodness knows, they have plenty of grease... But let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Vicki- Diner no longer has a supply of grease. Mary took it home to prepare her Christmas dinner with. Or, she took it home to serve as Christmas dinner.
You know, it's pretty sad... I haven't looked at my computer, email, ncthing since Friday... and what is the first thing I go to as soon as it boots up?My email account?My other email account?Facebook?News?No! I come here to see what has happened to poor Emily! And to see what ended up happening on Christmas Day. It was just as I expected: Mary is transported to another time to serve up some inedible looking horribleness to some orange haired or orange wearing folk.I wonder if there is a 12 step program for MW&me addicts...WV: 'uniziess' - which I am feeling about the future SWAT team episode at Diner...
Vicki and KitKat are right. To me it looks like Mary is sharpening her finger nails on a honing stone. No cell phone is that featureless or so sharp cornered. Is she anticipating having to fight McThuggy? And the question should be "WERE you able to stall them?" Nice to be back, though I knew nothing much would happen in my absence--except all the fun comments on this blog.I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas day.Dave in Parma, and any other Worthies in Cleveland: anyone want to meet at, say, the Market Garden (a new brew pub) for a beer and a hello?
@Mike--have been interested in getting to the Market Garden (presuming you're referring to the place by the West Side Market). This week is lousy though--am working and have more holiday family things ahead (apparently 3 weren't enough).
