Nothing cures a headache like a long conversation with Lu Ann. Thank goodness she's here to offer her expert medical advice.
It's very appropriate Lu Ann got a fat check from the Governor to sit down and have cawfee tawk while leaving a child unsupervised in some other section of the art gallery. Teaching is so easy! It feels great to give back!

Lu Ann's junkie artist boyfriend Alan, who got mixed up with the wrong crowd and then killed by another junkie. Which was kind of the most dramatic and wacky the strip had been since that time Lu Ann was seduced by a ghost. Fun times ahoy!

Lu Ann: "You're OK to do your art by yourself right? I know I'm supposed to be teaching you, but I really can't take away from my job as curator, or Margo will eviscerate me. You don't even need me to teach you...it looks like you've already learned a non-traditional pencil grip that will give you little to no fine motor control and you've got your ice pick there as a back up."
Marty: "That's fine...can you find my dad? I really want to show my dad my drawing. Which I'm just about to start by poking the paper with my ice pick. It's my process. You might want to take the frame wrapping off that Bed, Bath and Beyond decor before you hang it in the gallery...it's kind of noticeable."
Lu Ann: "Great! I'm already starting to shrink and grow younger because I've touched the the oddly placed doorknob on the portal to the infinite abyss. No turning back now! I'll see if I find your dad out there, although I probably won't recognize his tiny hands and giant child head. Be careful with that ice pick, don't stick it in the European electrical outlet by the door."

So I downloaded Saturday's strip. The faces looked a little funny, but I chalked it up to my browser having an off day, so I downloaded it and blew up it up to original size. It was then I realized that Frank is done. I mean stick a fork in him, the fat lady is singing, the referee is banging on the mat done. Done. The man can't draw the same face in two panels if his life depended on it. In the first panel Lu Ann looks a blonde Delta Burke. Which reminds me that I really wish they still showed Designing Women reruns. Maybe Casey and I can start a write-in campaign.

"If someone loved me the way Greg loves Margo, I wouldn't even consider my own feelings because I'm just a silly woman anyway."
Lu Ann, I'm a little fuzzy on the timeline here (have you even gone on your date yet?), but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Greg and Margo don't have you and Peter beat by much in the "time before falling in love" department, so there's that.
(I guess how Greg "loves" Margo is very different from how Paul "loved" Lu Ann?.... Yeah, he's James Bond, it definitely is.)

fling with Trey Brooks (whose last name I definitely just had to look up) teach you that you can't hide from life, and that you need to be brave and resume treating men as objects/sex slaves? I mean, that's what I thought that interlude was about. And why incidentally we've never seen Trey again. Margo put him on a shelf somewhere and forgot about him.

Seriously, who are the people in today's strip. It's like a fun house mirror in the second panel. Lu Ann's eyes are growing and retreating toward her ears, while Margo's jaw and cheekbones are jutting away from her forehead.
What a shock. Margo and Greg's romance has fizzled. What could have gone wrong? Was Greg not comfortable with a publicist who owns a kerosene lamp?

Oh Peter, when you want to creep outside someone's house, it's best not to do it in a

But JEEZ, Lu Ann, show some civic pride! I didn't rag on your pink cardigan so you could change into a sweatshirt for your date at the mansion. At least dress it up with a pillbox hat or something.

BUT! There's a slim chance we're in for some Dawn Weston-esque mopey adventures around Italy! Tommie could definitely pull it off, especially in that green sweatshirt. Maybe it's time to pull out the dress you got from I Dressed in the Dark.

That is a way fatter missive than the one that Greg sent Margo. It also seemed to included extensions specifically designed to enhance bowl cuts. I do love when we get to see Margo display her prodigious wit. Are we starting a Tommie storyline or are these tickets just an excuse for Tommie to be missing for the next year?

I apologize for this strip being slanted. That's the way it was uploaded to the site where I get it from. I'm trying really hard not to let it bother me, but I hope for my OCD's sake that it was a one off and not Frank slowly slumping to the right in his wheelchair at the home. For those of you who didn't even notice, it must be wonderful to live in your world.
In other news, it's our beloved blogmistress Maggie's birthday! She got a birthday strip where Margo displays her trademark lack of empathy for the plight of her fellow man, and the return of the old-timey walking candle! Let's all take midnight strolls through the corridors in our nightcaps!

I'd be afraid to cross Marty. Her fingers look like she's punched a lot of dumb blondes in the face for playing coy with her. I'm pretty sure we know everything we need to know about Marty. She hates her mom because presumably her mother abandoned her to serve her country in Iraq. Although, there is a large possibility that A3G is not forward thinking enough to have women in uniform, and Marty just hates her mother because she's stuck with her while her father is in Fallujah. Either way, she's acting out by dressing in gender ambiguous clothing, trying to grow in a mullet and wearing glasses that don't appear to have a full frame.

Already, I'm thinking Marty could be the greatest A3G character since Hobo-Tramp Dan. Those are some big, holey shoes to fill!

Either way, there's so much happening in this strip! Possibly transgendered children! (That's not the kind of thing with which the Governor should be associated.) Children who possibly aren't really children! (I was going on the assumption that Lu Ann just taught kids, but that is one tall child, so who knows.) Art that isn't just squiggles!! (Not everyone can be Jackson Pollock.) A kid/woman/dude who is finally unimpressed by Governor Trog!
I'm so excited for what this storyline will bring, and I don't care that I'm destined to be disappointed!

grown-up Michelle Tanner. All of which are kind of the same thing in my head, when I think about it.
