Dawn has become the anti-stalker. While Jim has no doubt moved on, Dawn continues to insist that she doesn't want to be more than a friend. That girl is NUTZ!
Today's Full Strip
Oh, thank heavens she's finally changed out of that purple outfit! Maybe she borrowed these clothes from Mary.So Dawn still has to abbrev certain wds when she texts? Isn't that a little...grade school-ish? It's not like it shortened her msg by much.....
Goodness, Dawn is texting on a Texas Instruments calculator, circa 1998. Notice that she is not in a classroom, the library, the hospital.... Will she have to go to The Pier directly after exerting herself like this to unwind?
OK, I admit I've never sent a text in my life, but do people really abbreviate the short words and spell out the long ones? And why do I get the feeling that Dawn thinks that LOL means "lots of love"?
No matter how much you insist otherwise, I just want to be friends. You are insisting otherwise, aren't you?
Thank you for sharing your volunteer efforts, Wanders, and just as I was beginning to wonder if there was any real effort or sacrifice required of a volunteer.
People do abbreviate when they text, but certainly not like that. Or.... maybe Dawn is just SOOOOO hip and happening that her abbreviations are the very latest thing, WAY over our heads... on that 1998 Texas Instruments calculator.Hey Dawn, see you next Tuesday!
Like a marathon runner bursting through the ribbon at the race finale, Moy blasts through the flimsy barrier that separated merely inane from truly offensive and insulting.Go, girl!
Looks like Dawn is only able 2 text when she's sitting on that bench. This cool tech twist will certainly bring in younger readers. Props, Moy!
@Elaine--she hasn't changed; it just faded from extensive use. @Jim: Itz not UR missing arm. Nor your bad breath. Nor the creepy stare you give 2 me when I wear pant suitz. Nor the fact that I look like ur dead sister. Nor the fact that IMN immature teenager. Nor the fact that u dont like ham sammiches. I'm just not ready 4 u.p.s. itz not ur Aquaman hair either.
@fauxprof at 10:19 AM, only Dawn would type "u" for "you" but spell out "misunderstood."
And Jim's text back?LOL OMG U R SO CUTE 4 SUM1 IN PURPL ALL DA TIME TXT ME L8R GF <3
The rest of Dawn's text:it's not ur arm. it's ur face. i'm not attracted to U in any way. LOLInspiring story and photos, Wanders.
I didn't know that Members Only made entire suits. 2 kewl.
Wow, somebody give Moya the award for "totally understands 20-something teenage undergrad lingo"
What a liar! Dawn would go back with Dave in a heartbeat if he texted her "...hey Dwn, 1na git tgther? Meet me at th pr in 5 mins, k?"
[Tuesday, November 27]That looks like a school in the first panel. Maybe Dawn is stalking Jim outside his workplace! (If only...this somnolent plot needs action.)
"I like it when U R my friend and U pay my way 2 the movies and buy me drinks and stuff but I don't want it 2 go any further than that, OK? How about U take me out to lunch tomorrow?"
Yesterday Dawn texted, today we see her leaving a voice message. I predict that tomorrow she will send a message in Morse code, and if that fails, she can always break out the old semaphore flags the next day. Friday could feature sky writing, and then we're off to a weekend of recaps. All in all, a very productive work week!
"Please Jim! I don't want to date you, but I need to claim you as my possession, er friend, before someone else claims you."
Dawn left a voice mail for Jim two Sundays ago. Yesterday she sent him a text message. Today, she is leaving another phone message. Maybe tomorrow she can send him an email or two. Then she can return to "Life of Pie" at Mary's condo and complain that Jim is ignoring her.
Nothing says 'I don't want to date you' like stalking via a myriad of electronic communication devices.
@Thorpnotized at 12:50 PM. "'Life of Pie' at Mary's" deserves a loud rimshot! (BTW, I heartily recommend "Life of Pi," a magical and wise film.)
Next, the Santa Royale police show up at Dawn's door with a restraining order for stalking Jim and harassing him with all the lame texts and voicemails. Well, at least that will put an end to her cafeteria-centric "volunteering".
If Dawn keeps this up Mary is going to push Dawn into sales.
