Can we please talk about baseball instead?
The Giants advance to the National League Championship Series. And both the Nationals and the Orioles survive do-or-die situations to advance to the final game of the series!
Today's Full Strip
That was an abrupt jump. Please use the clutch next time.Jim's sister actually had a heavy cocaine problem.
Let's see a show of hands (OK, Jim, one hand from you). Who wants to hear about Jim's sister? That's what I thought. Can we beat this story dead with a stick, please?
Oh, look! A plot development! OK, a little tiny plot development, but it's the first sighting in a long time. Add it to your life list, like in birding.Dawn, maybe you can be like a sister to Jim. That would be par for the course for you.(Wanders, remember how many Cleveland-area contributors you have. No, we probably don't want to talk about baseball. Or football. Too early to tell about basketball.)
@fauxprof - Ah, but Wanders has many Washington, DC-Metro area readers, many of whom are his fellow Marylanders. The possibility of a Nats/O's series just gets us all a-twitter. The traffic implications alone are staggering. Although the traffic for a Battle of the Beltways might still move faster than this plot-line.
I often ask MYSELF why Dawn was spared when others weren't. She is one dopey, mopey zero. However, it seems that Karen Moy has big plans for Dawn, who is morphing into a junior-grade Mary. Note the pearls and jacket (with ID tag)!Jim, please put back your nose! You can't spare another appendage.
Sigh. I really suck at this "Guess The MW Plot" thing, judging by my prognostication yesterday. Wow.fauxprof--Let him revel! We Clevelanders are used to the joy of others. We might as well be Cubs fans.Kitkat--Best first line of comments thus far. LOL. But Jim and Dawn deserve each other thus far. Both are so dorky and mushy as far as their character and personality. And if Moy were in my highschool creative writing course, she would have flunked on so many levels. Ugh.
After this week of platitudinous strips, I was ready to re-commit myself to a life of hedonism and misanthropy, but now that I know about Jim's sister...nah, hedonism it is!
Jim had a sister? Did she have a generic name, too?I'll echo the question everyone else's asking. Why can't Moy get off the Dawn story line? Is there anyone duller in Santa Royale? No, I didn't think so.
Speaking of hands, whose hand is that crawling across Jim's shoulder? We can tell from Dawn's arm angle that it can't be hers. It does seem to be a right hand, so it probably isn't Jim's missing hand coming back to visit. Maybe it belonged to his sister and he wears it on his shoulder in her memory.
I'd bet money that Moy has never been in a relationship in her life.
Love is not for her.
Jim... I didn't know... you were going to interrupt me. Would you please not try that stunt again?
This is officially the never-ending story. Moy and Giella will still be telling the tale of Dawn's budding love for Jim until they get their cancellation notices from the papers.I'd say we have another year or two to go.Next week: Dawn returns to Mary's apartment to feed her the latest news and also to receive more mindless platitudes. It's Mary Worth, not chicken soup, that's good for the soul.
I think Dawn will console him with something like, "Gee Jim, I know exactly how you feel. I lost my teddy bear when the ship I escaped from sank. I had to leave the poor thing behind, just like you did with your sister."
Since this storyline is getting very soap opera-ish, I predict that Jim's sister isn't really dead, but in fact alive somewhere, suffering with amnesia. During one of Dawn's volunteer shifts, an amnesia patient will come into the hospital, and Dawn will notice that she has an uncanny resemblance to Jim- (Considering that everyone in MW looks alike anyway, that's not really a stretch!) Dawn will question the amnesia victim about the ferry accident, and it will all come flooding back. Dawn will reunite Jim & his sister, and have something ''positive'' to come out of all the aquatic tragedies that have happened.
Jim: Was there something more I could have done to save my sister?Dawn: Jim...I didn't know. But someone once told me never to look back. To have no regrets. So...cheer up! Hey, look at me! I have a new fake job and a possible new love interest--YOU! And my dad might be able to option his new column into a book deal! Jim: Is there a hidden camera around here somewhere? Why is this happening to me?
No worries, Jim. "A short life is also good." So, no biggie about your sister. I do wonder about her name - it's going to be something like Sally or Beth or Peggy or Susie. Perhaps a betting pool is in order.
Jim: whenever I think if her, I have this urge to blow my nose into my hand.
oh, geez, wanders.sorry about the natslook at it this way...you have mary worth to comfort you.'(cold as that may be!)
Maybe Jim's sister--Jamie--faked her death to get away from Santa Royale.
