I'm guessing Gabriella is probably upset that Martin has paid zero attention to her spiritual beliefs on the subject of marriage, but COME ON, the man has a point, this is dragggggging. And apparently, when I went back in the archives, they were originally going to get married at City Hall, so what the heck! Just do it and let's move on to resolve Margo's House of Mopes.
Guys: Megan is in the UK right now, and I'm leaving for a trip to Japan tomorrow. (I put together a quick overview of our trip for my husband's blog if you interested in seeing what we'll be up to.) Casey will be here to hold down the fort, but I imagine she'll break after a few days. So this blog may be in temporary haitus. Hopefully by the time we get back, Gabriella and Martin will be married, Diane Devine will fly off on her broomstick, and Margo will find her bliss meditating at California’s Esalen Institute.

Sadly, Margo will not be available to be your attendant/witness, she just doesn't do last-minute bookings. But I'm sure Lu Ann and that bald dude will be really great too!

psychic medium who happened to worm her way into planning your wedding! And Martin should already know that because Gabriella kicked you out of the apartment on Diane's advice, and did you seriously never follow up on why that happened?! And you don't own a house and IT'S NOT HAUNTED!

Wait.... what? She does? *looks back at this past week's strips*
No like, seriously Gabby. How did we make the leap from "someone close to you wants to harm you but I can't tell you who" to "this house is evil"?
Is it like... she slept on it and realized that nothing can be closer to her than her house. She's IN her house! So clearly that's the problem! And the solution is for Martin to come to the house too?
Or maybe it's because English isn't her first language (I feel like that's true, but who remembers anymore). Diane is just taking advantage of a poor lady who doesn't know the difference between "evil intentions" and "evil house."
I am still voting "all of this is Margo's fever dream," though.

Fell asleep in my clothes again. Woke up to find my hair back to its full raven luster again. (Clairol's "Easy to Use While You Snooze" Root Touch-Up does it again!)
Starting not to understand my own logic with the psychic stuff—if I do believe in spirits and mediums, wouldn't it follow that I should feel something ominous? Is it my mom, still lingering in the apartment? Is it my framed print of the Ninth Gate? Is it my two-in-one fire blanket and comforter?
Oh well. Have a long day of shutting out my loved ones ahead, better get started.

Maybe someone like, physically, uncomfortably close to you at this present moment. Someone who looks way too psyched to be telling you that someone close to you wishes you harm.

Things that the Ghost of Gabriella's Mother is afraid of:
1) The constant changing of Gabby's hair color is doing serious damage to her follicles, and she hopes she is using the right conditioner.
2) If Diane doesn't keep stalling that Gabby will be incredibly disappointed in how lame the ghostly warning is.
3) That her daughter could be gullible to believe a psychic who wears a turtleneck.
4) Diane's deformed hand.

"Diane, while you went into the other room, I heard my dead mother's voice! I mean she sounded different, but the voice said it was my mother. How is this possible? Are you able to conjure the dead and change my hair color at will? It can't possibly be that a charlatan is playing on my sterotypical ethnic, old world superstitions to bilk me out of the money I will get when I marry a rich guy? IT'S NOT POSSIBLE!"

Martin, I know we derided you for not even entertaining the validity of Gabriella's beliefs, but Operation "You Don't Have to Take Her Beliefs Seriously, She's Just a Silly Woman" is in full swing here. Time to grab a fire ax and break down the door. Gabby is trapped by the flames of this swindler's hoodwinkery and she needs your help!
