Focus, Wilbur! Stay focused! Remeber, Iris loves FLOWERS! Don't let a little thing like her PDA with Zak turn your brown eyes blue!

Well, they'll probably remember that you dumped him when he was poor, but came back when he was rich. They'll call you a gold digger behind your back, which you definitely are. But then, their hearts will soften towards you as they realize you may be the only one who can convince him to stop trying to grow that beard. Not everyone can grow a full beard when they're 22. There's no shame in that. Be patient, and try again in a few more years.

The wedding is where we learn of Zak's serious mommy issues.

This is their life now. Standing around. Admiring one another's beauty.

I hope everyone had a peaceful holiday. I'm full of gratitude for your shared admiration of the Worthiverse. I'm always happy when new people post a message. You're always welcome here. As long as the Condo Board approves of you.

"I have plans... to boil Iris in a pot of steaming hot coffee."

While this panel would definitely have been a strong contender for a Worthy nomination, have no fear -- it will be included on next year's slate! It is still not too late to vote for this year's contenders.

If only Wilbur had made this type of emotional effort to win Fabiana back, we'd still be enjoying the beaches of Bogota and salsa dancing. He has no problem imagining himself capable of winning the girl back from Zak, but winning her back from Pedro... No way, Jose! Er, Wilbur.

Thank you for all the kind words yesterday regarding our Worthy Awards nominees. It takes a while to put together so I really am glad you're enjoying voting. If you haven't voted, you can visit yesterday's post.

I want to especially thank those of you who bribed the judges by making a donation! Such a help. It means a lot.

Is Wilbur actually planning to push that car down the sidewalk to run over Zak? I like where this is headed!

Also, I spotted this car in the parking lot at the Post Office yesterday!

I, for one, am not quite ready for the residents of Charterstone to start adopting the sexual mores of the French. No one wants to see that.

It's strange because they are happy. People who are happy usually move out of Charterstone.
