*Pokes head in*
*Sees conversation still going on*

Um, guys, I'm going to some kind of foreign country too.

Get It Over With!

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Frozen Face Theater, where audience members are invited to speculate which emotions the actors are portraying without the benefit of visual cues.

I'm guessing Gabriella is probably upset that Martin has paid zero attention to her spiritual beliefs on the subject of marriage, but COME ON, the man has a point, this is dragggggging. And apparently, when I went back in the archives, they were originally going to get married at City Hall, so what the heck! Just do it and let's move on to resolve Margo's House of Mopes.

Guys:  Megan is in the UK right now, and I'm leaving for a trip to Japan tomorrow. (I put together a quick overview of our trip for my husband's blog if you interested in seeing what we'll be up to.) Casey will be here to hold down the fort, but I imagine she'll break after a few days. So this blog may be in temporary haitus. Hopefully by the time we get back, Gabriella and Martin will be married, Diane Devine will fly off on her broomstick, and Margo will find her bliss meditating at California’s Esalen Institute.

Just The Two of Us

Uh oh, guys! Looks like the next exit on the Highway of Love is Elopement City! Population, 2! City Limits: Gabby's and Martin's "House"!

Sadly, Margo will not be available to be your attendant/witness, she just doesn't do last-minute bookings. But I'm sure Lu Ann and that bald dude will be really great too!

A Famous Wedding Planner

Am I taking crazy pills?! No, she's not a famous wedding planner, she's a psychic medium who happened to worm her way into planning your wedding! And Martin should already know that because Gabriella kicked you out of the apartment on Diane's advice, and did you seriously never follow up on why that happened?! And you don't own a house and IT'S NOT HAUNTED!

Lost in Translation

Wait.... what? She does? *looks back at this past week's strips*
No like, seriously Gabby. How did we make the leap from "someone close to you wants to harm you but I can't tell you who" to "this house is evil"?

Is it like... she slept on it and realized that nothing can be closer to her than her house. She's IN her house! So clearly that's the problem! And the solution is for Martin to come to the house too?

Or maybe it's because English isn't her first language (I feel like that's true, but who remembers anymore). Diane is just taking advantage of a poor lady who doesn't know the difference between "evil intentions" and "evil house."

I am still voting "all of this is Margo's fever dream," though.

I Need a Friend

Ohhhh yeah, Martin! Your fiance. I seriously forgot the whole "psychic-friend disrupts engagement" angle of this story. Yeah, maybe you should let the man you're going to spend the rest of your life with in on your inner turmoil. Although, you know how he feels about psychics. (Hint: not good.) (Hint: this will end in tears.) (Hint: this storyline will end in September at the soonest.)

Something Feels Ominous

Dear diary,

Fell asleep in my clothes again. Woke up to find my hair back to its full raven luster again. (Clairol's "Easy to Use While You Snooze" Root Touch-Up does it again!)

Starting not to understand my own logic with the psychic stuff—if I do believe in spirits and mediums, wouldn't it follow that I should feel something ominous? Is it my mom, still lingering in the apartment? Is it my framed print of the Ninth Gate? Is it my two-in-one fire blanket and comforter?

Oh well. Have a long day of shutting out my loved ones ahead, better get started.
