Margo Breaks Down

Ooh. You know you're in a bad mood when you sour the kelly green curtains.

According to our labeling system, in the almost-six-year (yike) history of this strip, Margo has cried in four panels total prior to today's meltdown, including one bout of tears that instantly turned to suspicion, and one spell of crocodile tears. For comparison, Lu Ann has eight panels of tears. Seven for Tommie. Apparently she only cried once about the whole "fake fiancee dying in a plane crash" thing? But she spent aaaaaaaaages in a tearless animal ranching funk.

Too Far

What is happening to Margo?  Maybe she's had some sort of off-panel traumatic brain injury that's causing her to become emotionally unstable.  Or Frank Bolle and Margaret Shulock are using Margo's growing isolation and anger as a coded plea to let them stop this strip.

Ordinarily, I enjoy when she's icy and tough, but now she's just being a witch with a b.  Watch out Tommie...I hope you're working triples at the hospital again.

Perfectly Fine

Oh no.  Margo's second layer of jacket is off, and it was only that thin layer of polyester that was restraining her contempt and the swirl of emotions that have been bubbling her since she began wandering the yellow brick street.  Off to the nickelodeon with you insipid blonde roommate!

Sunday Recap

Friday, February 27th

Sorry for the belated blogging lately.  Maggie is on a well deserved vacation, but that coincided with the release of the third season of House of Cards.  The exploits of Frank Underwood were just a tad more interesting than Margo having a crisis of confidence in the the middle of the street.

I find it hard to believe that the event in Margo's life that throws her into an existensial crisis is not her fiancee dying in a Nepalese avalanche or her former assistant trying to glitter bomb her apartment building.  It's her mom kind of being a bridezilla.

You mean the not being hungry is weird?  I would think that it is pretty normal that Margo mistreats her slaves roommates and demands that they leave her alone.

Crazy Apocalypse

Margo bot discovering feelings. Discovering existence of other people. Abort, abort.

Contemplation in Yellow

Margo, we also don't understand why you've chosen a blue shapeless windbreaker painter's smock and a pink turtleneck.  And why you suddenly care about planning your mother's wedding.  And why you've been standing in front of the same building for three strips.

What's Wrong With Me?

Pink turtleneck. Blue blazer. Aggressively yellow building. Green oldsmobile lurking in the background. Deep thoughts. Looks like Margo is ready to shoot her self-titled album cover!
