If you don’t know where you’re going I can’t tell you where you are.

Cosmic! Simply cosmic!

Here’s someone else who doesn’t know where she’s going.

But it’s not even remotely cosmic. Feh.

Can this marriage be saved?

First, Ian invites his new boss over for dinner on the spur of the moment. And this new boss guy is a peach; as we know, a gentleman never accepts an invitation that is offered less than three days in advance for reasons we shall see below. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150730

Then, Ian springs this mess on Toby, who is not happy. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150801

Toby has her own thing going on. Can this marriage be saved? Maybe.
MW20150804

Ian is all “I I I ME ME ME” and Toby has her own thing going on, whatever it is. Can this marriage be saved? No.
MW20150805

Toby is serving take-out to jerk boss. Who cares if this marriage can be saved?
MW20150811

Toby is too busy to sleep with Ian. Can this marriage be saved? Maybe.
MW20150818

And now Ian can’t/won’t/doesn’t go to Toby’s show that is SO IMPORTANT to her. Can this marriage be saved? Saved, people? It’s DOOOMED!
MW20150821

Where the hell is Mary Worth when people actually need her? And why didn’t Toby send up a surprise dinner guest SOS and invite Mary to take up the table talk slack? Mary would have at least brought some homemade beige food and a bottle of wine. Say what you will about my Mary, but she has great manners.

By the way, if you like what you’ve been reading, you can help out with the webhosting bill with a donation, if you are so inclined. In addition to my eternal gratitude, you’ll have the comfort of knowing I won’t be spending it on frivolous things like food or the electric bill or something.

Hey, Saturday

MW20150321

For God’s sake, Mary, let the man move in before you start to meddlize him.

A3G20150321

Uh oh, when LuAnn gives a guy another chance, it usually ends up in a near matrimonial experience. Run, Mr. Downey, run far away and fast. Transfer to the George V in Paris or something, but do it now.

Just shut up, Jermey, just shut the fuck up. Bullwinkle and Red Skelton were among the greatest comedic geniuses of the American 20th century. They should be taught in every High School in America, you little creep. Honestly, how do Connie and whatzhisname stand it?

Saturday Agony

Margo is so bossy, she must be an Aries. Maybe a Leo, but she’s not egotistically generous enough (Leos will borrow money to lend it to make themselves look good). And she’s not enough of a party girl to be a Sagittarius. So if she’s not an Aries, maybe a Capricorn or Scorpio, but I still vote for an Aries. Oh, and who doesn’t Margo’s mother’s psychic/astrologer, Diane Devine, remind you of? Artwork anyone?

MW20150207

Oh, yeah, Hanna? Good riddance, and live happily ever after.

Mary Worth has never looked more terrifying.

A3G20140825

10 years old? This storyline might set a new record in dragging the plot out. Wait… Plot? What plot? Tommie and Carol have been standing in various surreal locales like Vladimir and Estragon for so long, I can’t remember why. Maybe Pozzo and Lucky will show up soon (please, God, please). Who knows?

This is how I feel about it.

I just figured out what’s going on in 9 Chickweed Lane.

I love “It Happened One Night“! Well done, Mr. McEldowney. But kind of a dark and heavy juxtaposition for the usually fluffy 9 Chickweed Lane. Well, anyway, carry on.

Fun fact: I read somewhere that Clark Gable’s Peter Warne character eating carrots was the inspiration for Bugs Bunny. I can see that. Really, I can.

Y’know, I don’t think Mary is New York City material.

First she almost gets mugged:

Then she almost gets hit by a car:

It’s a good thing Jeff Corey wants her back

MW20140109

because how long is Ken Kensington going to want to keep rescuing her clueless ass? I wonder.

Catching up, not catching fire

A3G20131111

Oh, great is this going to be another high pressure proposal for LuAnn? She needs to meet better guys and Marty better call with an SOS PDQ.

Is that woman behind Mary’s left shoulder wearing the same dress as LuAnn? If so, there’ll be trouble in the Big Apple tonight.

DT20131111

Wow, Dick Tracy has a daughter who looks nothing like him. Christmas Early looks more like him than his kids, well, the ones I’ve seen. Are they all adopted?
