Lu Ann, your internal monologue is so poetically overwrought. My diamond sparkles like fire? Fire only sparkles if you've taken a healthy dose of LSD or peyote (Disclaimer: Don't try that at home kids). She certainly looks as if she's on something in the second panel, something to make her have crazy eyes and an evil smirk.
I'd really like her to wake up Margo with the exciting news, just to see Margo decapitate Lu Ann using the facet of her sparkly diamond. Tommie's probably nursing/starring in the play/still in a recording session with Hobo Dan.
