Emmy Tears

Black accent walls... kind of depressing home decorating.Bobbie gives the performance of a lifetime today. Confusion, anger, frustration, defeat... it's all there. Does Bobbie really see her husband that infrequently that just watching him makes her cling to both sides of her head like that?

In any case, Bobbie is definitely sporting what appears to be a patented Jane Seymour Emmy tear in the last panel, thus named because whenever award season would roll around, the really hard-hitting episodes of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman would air, and old Jane would pull out all the stops, crying as gracefully or as hysterically as necessary. She never won that Emmy... though her hairstyling crew won a couple.

N... not that I know a lot about that show?

Look... everyone needs a hobby.

What's totally surreal is that she's been staking out the spot for - like - 6 hours. Oh my god, I finally saw him! It's overwhelming. F him and his happiness.

God I love this comic.

There he is! It was worth it! It was worth the six hour vulture-like stare out the window! Annnnnd there he goes, off to get his groceries. Hmm. Okay, I need to reevalutate my life.

Does "husband" have a name? Or does she always just call him "husband"?

Shelley Winters is winning! WOOOT, although I'm surprised her main competition is Bette Davis. We all know Bobbie does not have Bette Davis eyes, nor is her hair Harlow gold or her lips a sweet surprise...
