My personal theory on where all this is going: the A3G girls will bond through their shared misery (duh), Kitty will learn from the girls the power of free speech and independence, and Kitty will go on strike, leaving Mama Kat to fetch her own vanilla soy lattes. Then Kat will fall apart, the show will fall apart, and no one will have new hairstyles after all. I just can't see the hair changing! Dress 'em up however you like, but a bunless Margo? It's just not to be.
No word yet on a new illustrator, but this would be such a clever way to fold him/her in, I hope they use this opportunity.

Also, WHOA, when did Kitty have time to fill ten damn garbage bags?? Mama Kat has dispensed exactly three wisecracks, quite neatly. Kitty is the realy workhorse of this team, obviously. I bet Kat's all like, Nice work Kitty! Here's a scrap of bread. Now gas up the car and drive me to Virgil's, and be sharp about it!

Also: Margo is a high-powered executive?

Wait a second... the juniors department carries pantsuits?

When I'm wheeled into the emergency room, I expect a certain amount of professionalism from the staff tending to me. I expect hues of toothpasty blue and raspberry sherbet. I want to see the scrubs! Scrubs don't make me think: "Don't look at me, I'm a loser." They make me think: "Oh good, there's someone who can tell me how I make this blood pressure monitor stop beeping stop beeping please STOP BEEPING FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!" And then they sedate me. God bless 'em!

Speaking of fashion tips! If anyone needs style advice from a kind of spacey fictional teenage girl, maybe you should check out What Claudia Wore, documenting the fashion choices of Caludia Kishi from the Baby-sitter's Club. I loved the BSC books as a kid, and the archives of this blog have been like revisiting my childhood, only funnier.
Unfortunately all the A3G girls dress like Mary Ann at best, Kristy at worst. Brave up, girls! Take a page from Claudia's playbook! Oversized t-shirts and leggings! Handmade jewelery! Nightmare-inducing hairclips! Accessorize accessorize accessorize!

Margo: What are feelings? Can I find them at the bottom of this glass?
Oh Margo! You've been trying to do that for years. Now come on, let's get going, you've got a show to put on, and I'm very excited that I might get to see everybody's legs for the first time in years. ...Does this make me creepy? Answer yes no or maybe.

But take it from someone who's mixed liquor and liquor and never been sicker: you will vomit. You will hate yourself in the morning, if not sooner. And as an added bonus, your all-day hangover tomorrow will be televised. So drink up, ladies! Can't wait to see it.
Both of them totally wasted, Lu Ann staring cross-eyed at blissed-out Margo, who's shaking up the largest mini-bar bottle of gin I've ever seen. The catfights were totally worth it. Totally. Worth it.
More tomorrow--er, later today!

So these girls have been running around in pantsuits all this time and I had no idea?? Oh my god. The field days I could have had. The wild, helpless joy I failed to indulge in. Why, Frank Bolle? Why?? I could have been making unfavorable comparisons left and right! Bea Arthur here, Judith Light there... all circa late 80s, of course. I guess I think all pantsuits are from the late 80s, because come on, haven't we gotten past the term "pantsuit" by now? Can't we just call them suits? When you think pantsuits, don't you kind of think of The Golden Girls?
Sadly, I could not find a picture of anyone wearing a pantsuit while filming The Golden Girls, but I do have a vivid memory of a particularly heinous get-up Dorothy was forced to weird involving a baby blue pantsuit with some kind of pseudo-cumberbund and a sad limp sequins bow. Not one of Bea Arthur's finer moments. I'd kill to see that outfit again though...

The sudden transition to the esteemed Midtown Hotel is made weirder by Lu Ann's totally unnatural crying and Tommie's bizarre advice (do you get why Lu Ann's upset, Tommie?). That second panel is straight up David Lynch.

I'm still thinking about yesterday's comic. The thing is, they all dress the same! There's no way Margo dresses any more like a schoolmarm than Tommie or Lu Ann. I get that her personality is different, but what does that have to do with her style? I know they've all got that coat that she's wearing right now in a myriad of colors. Margo wears turtlenecks sometimes, but they're arguably the most fashion-forward garments any of them owns.
The only way I'll be swayed to believe they don't all just pick out clothes from the same wardrobe is if I see authentic hidden camera footage. Produce the evidence, Martin and Gabriella.

And, do I have to say it? Glass houses, Kat and Kitty!

This city never sleepsAnyone want to guess that the second half of that verse is? Maybe something like:
And neither do I
Come dance with me...
I don't know what to make
I'm singing off-stageNo shame in that, Tommie. It's how the Phantom of the Opera got his start.
Because the director thinks I'm unattractive
Come dance with me...
