Come on Bobbie! A little less conversation, a little more action!
Wednesday, October 28, 2009
That said, if Bobbie steals Ruby's spot in I Dressed in the Dark by wandering onto set dressed like an eggplant Mao Zedong, I'll be upset, no matter whom her husband is doing it with.

Dear Dr. What's-your-face,
please accept this gift of whatever Anthony decided to throw in here
as a token of my desire probably. It looked expensive.
Well, I've got other things to do now.
How he must pine for her.

Deservedly. She's boring allright. Plus her pal Marie told her she was a spinster or spinster-like at least fourteen times. So, she was feeling pretty low.
So she decided to go to a party with good old Marie, where she met absolutely gorgeous, thin mustache-having producer, Neil! Meanwhile "fish lips" Gary was trying to put the moves on her, but who could notice with Neil being so hot??
Then Tommie insulted Neil's play, tried to take it back, and then WOUND UP MAKING OUT WITH HIM! It was kind of gross, especially since she frowned through the whole thing, but we all thought "Good for Tommie! I guess. Actually I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this." We all thought that, right?
Right after that, Neil left to make out with other girls, and Gary made his move, convincing Tommie to shake what her mama gave her in front of an old timey jukebox. And the rest is history. No spark, we'll see about that Tommie! ....When you dump him in two years!
So Tommie. Before you let your life become a Mobius strip of boredom punctuated by brief and compelling moments of exhilirating humilation, let me just reccommend: do NOT try to make out with Clinton Kelly. You'll only wind up with a broken heart.

So Tommie may look reluctant, but she'll probably come to the same conclusion we did and wind up going. That bubble-haired jerk better not make the show. This is Ruby's time to shine!

I will graciously overlook that What Not to Wear is over six years old and somewhat old news because I'm so excited that, you guys, Ruby's gonna get a makeover! Or Tommie. ....or potentially anyone in this strip. Buuuut, probably Ruby, cause of the ribbons and frills and all. I'll miss the ribbons, truly I will. HOWEVER, I really can't wait what constitutes a makeover in A3G world. My guess:
- hair covering one eye, Veronica Lake-style
- make up (for at least a couple of days)
- some sort of "voluptuous" dress
- less-oblong earrings?
- NO BOWS
I am also pumped to see what the Stacy London/Clinton Kelly doppelgangers are going to be like. Probably frantic and insulting. Yes yes yes!

- a painting competition? (for Lu Ann)
- a screaming match? (for Margo)
- an ugliest peacoat contest? (for Tommie)
- a door scrubbin' race? (for Ruby)
So many possibilities! Any suggestions?

Credit where credit's due: foreshadowing impatient greengrocer in Friday's comic. Nice touch.

You might've noticed me in Monday's comic, but since mangoes were included in the dialogue, I felt a little extraneous. Not anymore. I hope these folks stand keep milling around these mangoes for another few weeks so I can continue to prove my usefulness.

And what's up with Martin?? He grew an upper lip AND cheekbones in one day! Cosmetic surgery, I bet. New York City, am I right?

It looks like I didn't miss too much during my trip, except for one particularly exciting exchange between Ruby and Tommie:
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Tommie! Don't give up on life! You have so much to live for! Like............. your job?
"I feel lonely and unloved. You know what I mean?" Tommie's sigh of defeat and soul-crushing expression says "YES, YOU KNOW THAT I DO, WHY DID YOU EVEN ASK"

Professor, let yourself out into the pitch black hall, will ya?

All this seems like a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. Her troubled past, their romantic tension (that I'm guessing is there), the moral ambiguities of their professional and personal relationship... though it'd help if Bobbie were even a little feminine or good looking.
So, I challenge my readers to come up with a good Lifetime movie name for this story arc! Here's my attempt: Shaky Hands, Shaky Heart: the Bobbie Merrill Story.

By the way, Bobbie? The Professor isn't even a licensed counselor. He certainly isn't a medical doctor. Next she'll think he's an astronaut.
