first, now where’s the comic?
It was eaten by a brontorex-a-saurus. 😀
Is there another Jurassic Park movie coming soon???
Didn’t they make that movie in the 30s? “The Big Monster Sun Thief Meets the Bowery Boys.” I believe it was billed as part of a double feature along with “Ma and Pa Kettle Host an Orgy,” starring Fay Ray, Martha Ray, Ray Bolger, The Morman Tabernacle Choir, and Flick the Wonder Cockroach. A delightful tale of wife swapping and white slavery.
Yes, I’m channeling Johnny Carson.
Quick ! Get that woman some coffee !
With a little lithium mixed in .
I don’t think there is enough lithium in the world to take care of that.
no, no… I think it may be one of those hangovers that removes all rational thought.. she wakes up, its freezing, and dark…
her companion gets her coffee, and she says ” oh yes, um, curtains!…. 🙂
Jin… Jin… Jin, focus!
I have 2 suggestions. It is better to turn the oven on to broil and leave the oven door open then to curse the mythical (I hope) ice monsters. Or jump back under those warm covers and snuggle with that warm body that is presumed to have been sharing the bed with you last night.
Ahh, there it is. Jin better not set the curtains on fire. Now who is talking to Jin? I didn’t see any bodies in the bed with her.
That would probably be Mom.
…or perhaps Alan in now In On It?
Alan is already aware of what she is. He probably knows pretty much everything.
Last i remember what Alan knew/didn’t know was Jin’s suicide attempt. Quite likely she’s filled him in somewhat since than (and maybe it was in the strip and i missed it), but i don’t recall it if she did.
And, if she did and i don’t remember it, that worries me.
The suicide thing was the catalyst for getting things out in the open. I also recall a comic in which she was sitting on the bed with Alan, bubbling with good feelings about the latest attempt to fix the calendar machine and saying so. That would lead me to believe he was in on that as well. He already knew she had other personal issues as well (besides being a potential world ender), but we don’t know of his depth of knowledge of her current issues. It would seem wise for him to be kept in the loop, his being her safety valve and all.
There were several strips shortly before and after this one where Jin was talking about the calendar machine and being a golem and wanting to turn human.
I remember one scene where she ask if it is strange for him to have sex with a clay golem xD
so he knows
ha found it
Took me a while but I found it: http://wapsisquare.com/comic/screeeee/ was the time Jin “attempted” suicide…
I’m not sure. It would be rude for anyone to pop right into her bedroom, even mom. It seems like the blanket is rising up on the other side in the first panel, and looks like something deforming the pillow in the second. I’m thinking Alan is there. Though if he were she should be in a better mood. Do golems have that time of month? Maybe mentally at least?
Having to live with two sisters in my younger days (and survive I might add) PMS equals Pardon My Screaming. To a middle sibling male those seeming mythical days of the months were murderous. Those days were like a monthly Pon Farr except being far frequent than every seven years. My bedroom door at my parents home still shows evidence of some occasion that one of these sisters stabbed it with an icepick.
looks like I was lucky then , my two sisters were ok, one quiet one, the other a tomboy, so we had lots of fun!! 😀
yes, dodged the PMS bullet.. but friends didn’t.. one had a shed in the garden that was used monthly, it was much safer that way… :/
Much worse if the females in the house are on the same schedule it gets multiplied by the number of comments and the guys hide in the cellar in case the house implodes
I don’t think it’s PMS. Today’s strip reminds me of the one where Jin asked Alan to put some socks on because his feet were cold.
Let’s look at her history: she has spent most of her life in tropical heat so that may have an influence on the way she reacts to cold.
Actually, it turns out it was two strips:
Jin has always hated winter and cloudy days. There was one with her Mom and another when she was complaining about the stupidity of Nordic people immigrating to a place with similar weather.
…of course, that’s not going to keep guys from talking about women and PMS. 🙂
This is the other one I was thinking of:
Well, Jin has been known to have conversations with people who aren’t there.
…hrm… She’s also had demons…
The way that the blanket sort of begins to mound up at the right side of Panel One suggests that there is a body there.
And in the second panel, there are mysterious shadows and wrinkles there. I suspect Alan.
I thought Bud was the one with fire breath. Maybe all the GGG have it, though, and Bud just uses it the most.
Jin actually appears to be fairly rational in a silly, fairy tale telling way…
Keep in mind that there seems to be a little girl taking over part of Jin, so there could be a bit of childish imagination creeping in.
Another reminder: Maya moved out, in part to give Jin some privacy with Alan. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if she kept checking in on Jin, particularly given Jin’s problems.
Wow… she needs industrial-strength Haldol.
Mwahaha! Oh, hilarious!
Oh, boy… And I thought I was nasty in the mornings. XD
Nope. It lasts through most of the day if I don’t get enough sleep.
I am that nasty in the mornings…though I haven’t managed actual fire breathing yet…
My wife and stepdaughter HATE to be around me in the morning.
Of course, at that hour, their conversation mostly consists of snarls and semi-intelligible mutterings about a mystic substance called “coffee”.
USE SOME REVERENCE WHEN YOU TALK OF COFFEE OR FACE THE WRATH OF THE EMO-BOY DECAF WHINER!
Tea for me, please. 😛
One more comment with that vile brew’s name and I’m going to dig up my coffee comic collection. It’s Big, it’s a very BIG collection. Trust me you don’t want to see it. (Garfield is in it)
ok am i insane, or does Jin look MAD SEXY when she gets out of bed? ^__^
if it wasn’t for the death stare in panel one, i would agree 😛
Yeah, I vote Mad Sexy.
you are not in the least bit insane…
That doesn’t have to be a mutually-exclusive response. Your sanity or lack thereof has nothing to do with Jin’s being Mad Sexy, or not. Both could be true statements or false statements independent of the other.
Jin is SO CUTE there! Panel one Jin is particularly mad sexy, yes. I hope for some strips showing Alan appreciating his good luck.
Yes . I’m lovin’ the bed-head look , Jin has .
Jin is a fabulous character. I hate her so much.
Somehow, EVEN though it’s not there, when i read that final balloon, it ends with “…again!”
Aggh. How did the “caps lock” get on when i went back to put that “even” in there?
I’ll bet she could huff and puff and blow the clouds away. Maybe compress some water and start a fusion reaction to make her own micro-sun. Not sure what she could place it on though.
Yeah, don’t you just hate it when the curtains get set on fire?
Not to worry, she can put them out by shouting the wall down.
Is everyone voting? We seems to be unable to break 50 and now are even dropping back.
I’m voting twice a day. Three times, if I feel industrious…
Are you from Chicago? New Jersey? Or does some other jurisdiction go by the motto, “Vote Early, Vote Often!”?
That is SO me the last few days…. It’s not even November and we got iced over horribly…
It’s not November…..Er, what planet are you on, and your IP must be awesome?!
Or her IP is unbelievably slow and that post was sent out in Oct. in response to another comic.
Brainfart. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she meant December.
grammar?? she is talking ‘past tense’ – If she thought it was ‘not yet November’ , it would be ‘get’ not ‘got’ 🙂 🙂
lol… the first thought I had was ‘morning breath’…
Lethal strength morning breath. Does the EPA know of this and would the Superfund cover it?
Giant Ice Brontorex-a-saurus? I knew there was a reason I didn’t want to live up north! 😛
At least once every winter of my youth in Michigan the HIGH temperature would be -6F…
…and then there was wind…STRONG winds…
Yep…that’s what I call insanity. 🙂
Most people don’t ever run into it, though. Some of those that have seen it got confused because the fur of some animals it killed got stuck to it and froze there. Anyway, the local name is “Sasquatch”.
Heehee…oh, is that what that is? I dunno…the Sasquatch images I’ve seen have been of not-so-giant creatures. 😛
Interesting Jin’s hair is down to the middle of her back. I wonder if that great portent of things go come? Or just Jin wanting a new look?
Jin’s hair is a Fibrous Substance Of No Fixed Measurement.
Fluctuating Hair Syndrome. But then, Bud did have a thought bubbled that indicated that Jin could change her hair as she liked.
I remember Monica commenting on Jin’s return from a dance club where she met Alan that her hair was long, and did it mean something.
Dunno, but I’m digging the bedhead. Some ppl gotta use all kindsa product to get that.
I know how she feels. Of course, this morning I also share her serious case of bed-head. Most likely not for the same reason though, as I lack the hottie boyfriend.
Personally, I second her comments and appreciate the attitude. I HATE winter, cold, ice , snow and slush. Why the hell do I live in New England? And we don’t have snow…yet. I wish I could hibernate.
LOVE the new species of dino, too. Heh!
hey we get that in old england too!! only ‘the north’ gets good snow…
down near London, we get frozen pavements and no snow, or not cold enough, and slushy rain, that freezes for more slipping hazards!! If it did not thaw so much(on the rare occasion it actually settles!), causing problems for cars and people, then it would be nice to look at, AND use… 🙂
That ugly-ass brontorexasaurus has been definitely wandering through my neighborhood this morning. It’s cold enough to freeze the nuts off a brass bridge…
When based at Ft Richardson AK during one simply horrid winter you could watch spit bounce off the sidewalk. Temperature was about -31 f.
And now being a postal worker worker you would spell winter using the most available four letter word. Especially when you step on (and fall over) one of these snow buried traveling water sprinkler that some homeowner forget put up .
I’ve had winter mornings like that. “whut, where’s the sun? It’s morning and there’s no sun, what the hell has happened!? Oh, dark clouds plus curtains equals dark.”
Was like that in the wilds of lower Midwest yesterday, too. Uh, and today. Drizzle and freeze. & where IS the sun? Wistfully remembering when winter used to start later.
She’s either starting a new myth concerning the origin of dark, cloudy days, or she’s talking about Rosie O’Donald. It’s cute though, either way.
Silly Jin, it is just your typical Minnesotan Winter.
Minnesota nuthin’. When I was stationed in Heidelberg, Germany, I took a picture of what appeared to be about an hour before a glorious sunset. Unfortunately, the shot was aimed due South and taken shortly after noon on Dec 22. The most southern point of Germany is further north than the most northern point of the Lower-48, and the winters are Dark.
On the other hand, Minnesota is in the middle of a continent, while Germany gets some benefit of the Gulf Stream–so Minnesota can get rather nippy, despite being further south than Germany.
To be fair, In this comic. Setting the curtains on fire from anger is a real possibility.
Perhaps once she has her coffee, she’ll come to the same conclusion Monica reached and poit to Tahiti for awhile…
True (though it would still be dark in Tahiti at early morning in Minneapolis). She’s rich enough to have places all over the world. Being her BF could have great fringe benefits (besides the obvious). No morning sun? *poit* wake up in her beach house in Puerto Rico to the rythmic sounds of gentle waves. Too hot some summer? *poit* brunch in her Swiss mountain chalet.
Was the dino-icer sent by a certain frozen custard-themed villain?
I’m in Southern California. I have none of this ice-snow-stuff you talk of. Now if you’ll excuse me; *readies Simpson’s Nelson voice & pointing* HA HA!
Ha Ha, massive wildfires … Ha Ha, earthquakes … Ha Ha mudslides …
Darn you! Beaches trumps everything!
You can keep your beaches…and your earthquakes and mudslides….
Crazy people living in such dangerous places…
well I’l take snow… Went down to point Pelee for a weekend and froze myself to bits in early fall. Pelee is on a parallel with California so you do get cold.
I’m a bit miffed that we haven’t had any real snow that lasted over an hour this year I like the look of snow in the evening, and the crispness of winter, not this damp wind and muck. SNOW ALREADY!!!!
Hey Anji, as a native Californian, I can recall in younger days, times I could look East and on rare occasions see very big hills. Sometimes these big hills had white tops. I suspect this white stuff that covered the big hills is the snow of which the others speak of.
Yeah, those mountain things (Big Bear?) where people go skiing on Saturday then to the beach on Sunday.
So, a watched pot never boils, but a yelled-at one might. Jin’s yelling would also be useful when snowplows dump snow across her driveway. Temper tantrums might be more constructive than I though.
Whenever I wake up in the morning and I can’t see the sun, I usually find that’s 2 or 3 am !
Could be the case here. She may be disoriented and only thinks it’s morning.
I find it highly interesting that Jin suggests (to put it politely) that a monster ate the sun; isn’t that the Norse myth about how the world will end?
