Mary Worth 2222

Mary teaches an important lesson here: No matter how good we think we are, there is always room to think we are better.

Let's resolve to develop a plot in 2016. Olive, you used to be fun, with the flower fairies, guardian angels, midnight drownings and heroin addicted surgeons. Now it's just one big sanctimonious stroll around Manhattan. I'm glad you're both enjoying your time together, but I'm about ready to see what's going on at Apartment 3-G. I'm sure it is more exciting than this.

For those of you who don't have access to the Sunday splash panel, I wanted to make sure you saw this. You can thank me later.

I'm not sure a house guest and your child on the balcony outside that sliding glass door constitute privacy. But, hey, if you're comfortable, go for it.

After all the planning and early preparations, I think we were all expecting something a little more appetizing than turkey and booze. The dinner may not be much, but it's still the sexiest Christmas greeting ever.

This Mary Worth Christmas story is a delight, casting images of Evy and Tee-Hee Eddie to the dim, peripheral corners of our mind, then offering prayers in church for loved ones far and near. I'm going to stop worrying about the turkey they cooked the day before Christmas dinner, and just wish everyone here a very merry holiday! Thank you for your kindness and support of this blog, and to those of you who recently made donations, I thank you as well. I'm going to use those gifts to donate to a family of one of my employees who had a house fire two weeks ago, and are now living in a hotel. I hope you find joy in the peace of this season and the coming year.

How condemned will Tee-Hee Eddie feel when Mary Worth comes knocking on the door to ask if she can take Olive to church!

I can't wait to hear Eddy holler from behind closed doors, "Mary, we don't care where you take Olive, or what religion you are! You know that. We will see you later."

And Ed and Evy have decided to wear the same pair of pants. Cut down on the eggnog, kids.

Yesterday's FREE secret message complimented Joe Giella on his portrayal of a New York City Market. Sigh

In the end, it means Olive is ripe when she completely gives in to the will of Mary. Whoops, my mistake, she's practically rotten!

Ed's expression says it all: "We must put an end to Mary's influence on our daughter. Chefs only make $40k a year. She'll be a doctor's wife like her mother, and she'll like it."

Artist Joe Giella is 87, but his joie de vivre is still abundant and a bit mischievous. Thank you Uncle Joe for this special Christmas gift. Let me give you a hand. Oh, I see you already have plenty!

There's more coming up! I'll definitely stay tuned. I'd been planning an expensive NYC trip with my family this Christmas, but now I don't have to! This has been even better than the real thing.

"You get me, Mary... wait. What? You think my supernatural experiences are imaginary? You don't believe I really see angels and flower fairies? You're no better than my pathetic parents. You're dead to me, Mary. Dead to me."

Talk about insensitive, Mary you're talking right in front of that guy's face. That is, if he even has a face.

Olive, Mathilda is a fictional character, so yes, you are alone. Also, this may come as a surprise, but you are a fictional character too. You don't even exist. Hopelessly alone forever. If "nothing" can even be alone.  

As everyone strikes the anjali mudra pose, I can't help but feel this is the most uptight yoga class I've ever seen.

Okay, can we just establish the fact that Mary and Olive ALWAYS know what each other means. There's no reason to say, "I know what you mean." Even though neither of them can verbalize the deep feelings and insights they experience at the world around them, it doesn't matter because the other will clearly understand. In fact, words don't need to be said at all. These two can just hang out together in complete silence, glancing at each other knowingly.

It appears that the velociraptor has indeed become animate and is grabbing its first victims. Quick. Protect yourselves.

I must say, yesterday's comments had me chuckling outloud. All were hilarious, but I hope you sung Fauxprof's song outloud.

Yes, it could happen again. An asteroid could hit the earth at any moment. It is definitely something to lie awake at night and worry about.

Olive, people are going to hate you because of your special powers. The time is now. Seek vengeance while you can. Levitate yourself and lead these inanimate objects to reign horror on the torpid bourgeoisie of Manhattan!

Hey! She's right! There are four floors, and the dinosaurs are on the top floor! I feel like I'm getting a real life tour of New York from a real life New Yorker!
