Also, he can't access more photos of himself, Skype, or Facetime because of overseas bureaucracy and gullibility.

"Ten thousand dollars? You don't have ten thousand dollars? I'm sorry Arthur Z., but you aren't the man I thought you were. Maybe you should try Aluminum-Daters instead of Silver-Daters."

No doubt, abducted by Malaysian gang members who need money wired to their Bank of America account. Oh, please, Estelle, save him.

Isn't it sweet that Arthur Z (if that is your real name!) holds his cell phone just like Estelle? It's both dainty AND dangerous! They're a perfect match.

Miss you guys!

While I’m still traveling, I just have to wonder, “Who signs a text to somebody they already know?”

I just love taking tests

While Estelle is giving out answers to every possible security question, I’m going to take a little break to celebrate my parents’ birthdays. They both turned 80 this month so my siblings and I are all getting together with them. Have a wonderful week. 

By the way, they met in Sacramento. I hope I haven’t compromised my security by revealing that!

Question 1: What is your date of birth?

Question 2: In what city were you born?

Question 3: What is your Social Security Number?

Question 4: What is your favorite credit card, its number, and the last three digits on the back?

Question 5: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Thank you for filling out this questionnaire. I love you.

I realize, of course, that Libby the Cat is not talking to Estelle because that would make no sense... but then, very little in this story is making sense... so, hey, maybe it is Libby.

"And spend the rest of my life cracking my knuckles, picking my nose, and passing gas. That's love."

At first I didn't recognize this as e e cummings because of the All-Caps convention of the comic strip. So my question is, does Arthur Z want us to believe he wrote this himself? Or does Karen Moy?

It's been a long, tantalizing weekend of getting to know each other. It appears Estelle has learned from her mistakes. If only she'd spent this much time getting to know this guy:

But I am a little confused by this exchange yesterday:

He moved to Santa Royale three months ago, but hasn't returned to the United States? How does that work? I smell a catfish. I don't think Estelle and I can handle another disappointment!!

Also, Captain Marvel was amazing. My daughter introduced me to the comic book a couple of years ago. The movie was nearly perfect!

Ah, the moment it moves from Yahoo email to Yahoo instant messaging - perhaps the most exciting moment in a deceptive online relationship.

How could a man resist such an intriguing message? I'm sure if I opened my spam folder, I'd find thousands of emails with this exact message. That's how I know it will be effective.

I think I am learning nothing about using online dating sites. So you see their pictures, read their profiles, then have dinner with them? Then they show up and are 40 years older than their photo, or they are suddenly a hobo? I'm really confused why people do this.

In comedy, there's this thing called the Rule of 3. A sequence of jokes gets funnier at each reincorporation, up to three times. Go for a fourth and you've crossed a line. You've crossed a line, Moy. You've crossed a line. Unless this isn't meant to be funny and is only meant to demonstrate how desperately lonely (and hungry) Estelle is.
