Mmmm, delicious…Ice cream.
*Facepalm*, Well put Dietzal
Everybody’s a critic!
“Affair” – like The Man from U.N.C.L.E..
“The Calendar in the Pyramid Affair”
Mmmm . That ice cream looks good , right now .
I wonder if that band-aid on her leg is an injury from yesterday’s boob-related mishap.
One wonders at the Band-Aid when a hail of bullets doesn’t pierce her skin…
I’m still not sure that somebody wasn’t teleporting the bullets away…
I still wonder about all the holes in her bra, yet no corresponding boob holes?
Well, this is what Bud had to say about it: http://wapsisquare.com/comic/motherhen/
Bud is my hero-ine!
But she didn’t dodge all the bullets as her holey bra showed. How could the bullets penetrate the bra and not it’s contents?
Band-Aid on leg == Shaving accident
Nice touch. An activity and event implied with but one single artifact.
I have three sisters. My wife has three sisters also. I learned a long time ago to not ask what those Band-Aids were for.
3 sisters!? My sincerest condolences.
her next thing should be her boy friend proposing.
You know, this would be weird if it was not obvious that Dietzel is responding/reacting to what Monica is saying, and not just looking at her, like a typical dog would do.
Actually a typical dog would be looking (longingly staring) at the ice cream bar.
Task, charge, commission, goal, objective, operation, pursuit, quest, sortie, happening, case, episode, job, project. The Thesaurus is your friend.
Opps, went under the wrong sub-thread. Oh well.
Dietzel Facepalm FTW!
For the record I think it should be her next schtick.
I think “Mission” is appropriate. Or, in her particular case, Kamikaze Missions.
DUN DUN, da-da DUN DUN, da-da DUN DUN…
(May Peter Graves RIP)
Escapade is my favorite, but fiasco may work.
Whatever she calls it, the ice cream looks yummy, and so does Monica…
try ADVENTURE mon :p
and is that a feast 😀 we were discussing those yesterday at work 😀 mmm feast 🙂
meh she used adventure in the first 3 secs.
hmm dunno then 😀
“Excuse not to go to work.”
…and an ice cream bar on St. Patrick’s Day? Granpa O’Sullivan would be ashamed, ashamed
Well… maybe it’s pistachio…?
…or flavored with Baileys?? MMMMMMmmmm – a Good Humor Chocolate Eclair bar flavored with Baileys!! If it was in a dish, I’d suggest a scoop of french vanilla with a small pour of a good Irish whiskey sprinkled with a smattering of instant coffee crystals. A very nice calming dessert or treat, which I’m thinking Mon needs.
Perhaps Guinness ice cream on a stick?
Guinness IS good for you!
Still, I’d rather drink it with some nice crispy, hot fish & chips or a rare, juicly muchroom burger! Good thing it’s almost lunch……..
Guinness! The prefered beer of people who like good beer!
Hey Fairportfan, I see the Guinness saga continues from the Pibgorn forum…
Hmmm. It could almost be inferred that it was Dietzel that said Umm..
Curiouser and curiouser.
First time posting here (tho I’m not new to WS). Not sure if my gravatar will follow me. Today’s panels made me head for the freezer. Good thing I bought ice cream yesterday. Can’t wait to see what next big thing is on its way. I agree with Monica. “Adventure” doesn’t quite cut it. “Mystery” is a little too Scooby Doo. But I do like “Next Big Thing.” (As always, love the attention to detail: bites out of the ice cream bar; the Band-aid!)
*hugs* Great to see you here! 😀
Leaving the Pizza Girl at the mercy of Dietzel?
I believe you may have who is at the mercy of whom backward there.
Given how things usually work out — ‘Misadventures’ is probably the correct term.
What the hell is wrong with Monica? I think it’s extremely weird that Monica seems to be expecting a new adventure and isn’t even thinking about the one that was recently dumped in her lap. What was her scream about if Jin being broken wasn’t a ‘big thing’ for her? It’s as if Tina and Bud made no impression on her or she has already solved that problem. This is just bizarre!
Is Monica crazy or very self-delusional? I don’t think Paul would make Monica actually crazy, but that’s about the only possible explanation for this page. In any case, this sure makes Monica’s character look bad.
Welcome Suze! (I don’t think I got the confirmation email to set an avatar.)

She’s referring to all the stuff that’s going to come with trying to help Jin. Jin may be the big picture but M knows there are going to be all sorts of crap going on during the journey to help Jin. =)
Some folks just don’t need to obsess about the past.
No, I’d say it’s more the Rincewind effect. M just had an “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” epiphany, and is acknowledging that from here forward, this is probably going to be how her life works, so she may as well try having a more positive attitude and some fun while she’s on the journey.
It can be very freeing to quit fighting rear-guard actions, and accept that the status quo is what the new normal will be . . . until someone/thing goes and changes normal again (builds a glass clock, a new calendar machine, or some other damfool thing).
M’s neck seems to be having a growth spurt
Couple thoughts to share about this… I started reading the comic back when it was more involved with non-earth shattering events. I like the adventure aspect, but I was hoping that things would return to “normal” before (or if ever) the next adventure began. Story-wise this talk of further dangerous activity as though it were inevitable seems pretty quick. Can’t she have a break? Can’t she spend some time with Kevin?
And speaking of Kevin, where is he? Monica’s been sharing serious thoughts with just about everyone else important in her life except Kevin… why? Is she communicating with him “off screen” or inbetween the daily strips? Does he notice and comment on her recent emotional state?
…and what about OWEN????
I just spent two days reading this comic all the way through, and enjoyed every minute of it! I’d praise it highly, but I’m not that eloquent. All I can say with certainty is GREAT FRICKEN COMIC! I’ll keep reading from here on out. :}
I have lurked too long! Pablo, I’ve been faithfully reading your strip since…well…since it was a strip! It is just awesome to see how your characters have developed over the years….color me a faithful wapsi fan!
Her next adventure should be Kevin trying to get her to start exercising again! 🙂 Her diet hasn’t seemed to improve much since back then, I wonder if ‘Poiting’ counts as exercise and could help M with her cholesterol lol
I’m somewhat of a new fan. I think that the story lines are great. I think that I’m hooked now
Heh heh heh.
Another victim of the Great Fairportfan Time SInk COnspiracy!
(server still doesn’t know about DST, does it?)
BUT WAIT – Is Monica’s boss still in the hands (or whatever) of Phix?
Like the pentagonal grill on an Acura, or the vertical grill slats on a BMW, that band-aid must be a signature or something…
GOLLY GEE WILIKERS, You are absolutly right! You sir, deserve a cookie!
i don’t think anyone’s mentioned this but i had a thought about what dietzel’s thinking:
“great. you saying naming things is not your forte makes me feel better about my name”
