Toby's backless dress vs. Professor Quaker Oats' puffy shirt and grey wool socks. And it is Ian who is getting hit on at work. Does anyone else find this story a little backwards?

I'm sorry that I missed Mary's Christmas dinner, but it is nice to know that Dawn returned from Italy and did not appear to be pregnant. I'm also very happy for Jannie. Not all college professors are so excellent, and while his RateMyProfessor.com reviews are definitely mixed, he seems to strike a chord with the brighter students.
I hope everyone had a happy holiday. Our oldest got married on Saturday, and then with family around for Christmas, I've been a little busy. It may delay the Worthy Awards, but they will happen!
My best wishes to you for a very happy New Year!

Just for laughs, I ran today's Worthy-Speak through Google translator into Korean:
Jeff: 고양이 알레르기를 수락 해 주셔서 감사합니다. 네가 리비를 좋아한다는 걸 알아.To get a sense of how much Google Translate struggles with Worthy-Speak, I then translated it into English.
Mary: 그녀는 지금 에스텔과 함께 있고 모든 당사자는 행복합니다.
Jeff: Thank you for accepting allergies to cats. I know you like Libby.Color me impressed.
Mary: She is now with Estelle and all parties are happy.

I'm having a little trouble knowing how to answer Libby's question. It really all depends on her tone. If she's asking "Meow?" as in a sincere "I'm not?" then the answer is a simple, "No, you are not." But if she's defiant in her tone, such as "Why not?" then Mary will need to explain about the bacteria on Libby's paws lingering from her recent litter box visit, and how cats should never walk on food preparation surfaces. Knowing Libby, I don't think she's going to like that answer at all.

"I can't tell Jeff to stay away. Heaven knows I've tried."
Sometimes this blog writes itself.
Actually, it doesn't write itself, as you've no doubt noticed that I've missed posting on quite a few days. We hosted Thanksgiving this year, work has gotten very busy, and my oldest daughter is getting married later this month... so the Wanders family has been a little bit busy. I do intend to get the Worthy Award nominations posted by Christmas, and after that, my life should be back to normal in January just in time to host the Awards Ceremony. Thanks to everyone who keeps this blog going, even when I'm not around. So while this blog doesn't write itself, I do feel that it is written by all of us; not just me. Thanks everyone, and happy holidays!

I'm struggling to understand why Saul isn't grumpy anymore. The only thing different is that instead of a bowtie-wearing chihuahua, he owns a bowtie-wearing dachshund. So unless Tommy is dealing again to the lonely residents of Charterstone, I can't figure it out.

It's no coincidence that I, too, have been going through a dark time since I first met Bella, and I thought Greta was going to save me by bringing this story to an unsatisfying but abrupt conclusion. But, no, Moy has found a way to drag this out forever. I feel like I've joined Bella in doggy hell.

I'm sorry for such erratic posting lately. I've been hiding in my shell. It's just that this story, after ten years of commenting on Mary Worth, has defeated me. I can't even pretend to like it. It is so dull that even I don't care. I'd rather shop for tires than post about this story, but I'm afraid I'd come home with a dog. I do see that the victory lap has started, and so there is hope.

"That's why I'm taking you back to your old owner - because when you shut out the bad you shut out the good. Mary taught me that. If you stop watching bad movies, you can't watch good movies. If you break up with a bad boyfriend, you can't have a good boyfriend, and if you stop reading Mary Worth, you can't read Doonesbury, or Calvin and Hobbes."

I expected some sort of congratulations from Karen Moy for my 3,000th Mary Worth post, so I visited her blog, but this was all I found: A one-sentence post with a scan of her own comic that wasn't even straight. It makes me feel a little unappreciated, frankly.

Humane Society Volunteer: "We've had her locked up in this tiny cage with no bedding for almost a year. We even feed her twice a week. But still, not a word... We just can't understand it."
Saul: "Have you tried making her wear a ridiculous bow tie?"

Maybe this is why I haven't been around much the last few days...
For those of you who are wondering what in the holy name of Scooby-Doo Mary means when she says that by shutting out the bad, we also shut out the good, I put it to the test. When I shut out this strip for three days, I missed the good - all of you guys.
