As I ponder the value of a short life well lived, I think I will fill my time with my absolutely favorite short film. I have probably posted this before, but I don't care!
Today's Full Strip
That film has a definite streak of Wanders-tude to it. Thank you for sharing, friend.You have a cool keyboard, Mary. And you always keep that hair tight.
Perhaps Mary is not understanding the premise of Wilbur's column. Someone has to ASK a question before the pontification can begin, no?Clearly Moy is spinning her wheels while she cooks up the next armchair-gripping plot for us.
So...if Dawn does something worthwhile, like helping Jim, then we can kill her?Mary's desk accessories are quite fascinating. We have the retro in-out basket, the pencil cup and the computer, all in stylish gunmetal grey. The best are her reference books: "Bartlett's Familiar Platitudes", "Aphorisms for All Occasions", and that advice writer's essential tool, "The Elements of Smugness".
P.S. Wanders, I LOVE that film! I'm smiling now. (And T.J. Thyne as a bonus. Thanks.)
A short plotline is also good.
"Dear Wendy, what about a medium life, you know, not short but not long, sort of in-betweenish..."Dear Wanders, thanks for the validation!
Mary's sudden Platitude Gushing has a very sinister undercurrent to it. Is she advocating euthanasia? Murder? Is it a warning that she's going to kill Dawn? Was that Ghost Pie aptly named?I feel like, had Mary not gotten her upper lip waxed discreetly at Spa, she might be twirling a mustache in today's strip.
Something is definitely wrong with Mary. She ended every sentence with a period. Not an exclamation point in sight. Is she slipping away?
It's no wonder Mary is onto what must be her favorite part of the "Ask Wendy" gig--lecturing readers. She didn't bother to actually talk to Wilbur--the guy she GOT the job from--but instead got Dawn's blessing to continue doing "Ask Wendy" (see yesterday's strip). Maybe Dawn actually runs the newspaper! This may explain her cavalier attitude about choosing a college major. . .
Looks to me like Mary is going to transform Ask Wendy to compete with Wilbur's new I'm Alive (? can't remember the name) column.Let the column wars begin!
The in/out boxes are so big, but the books are so small. I was expecting the computer mouse to have whiskers.
What a great film!
Thank you for the charming film - just loved it!
My new favorite video. Will be sharing it with all my friends and watching it repeatedly any time I feel discouraged with humanity.
Thank you for sharing your favorite short film. It's now mine. :-)
