And Tina is STILL so insightful. Glad she wasn’t affected by the demon closing vacuum.
And another thing…
Monica in a Jean Jacket just hits my wolf whistle. 😉
Relax ladies, Bill Murray is nowhere in sight.
“Your auras auras are glowing…”?
Their aura’s are so bright, they’re giving off their own auras.
Bright Shiny Happy People! (Holding Hands?)

There it is!
Why does this feel like a series finale?
More like a season finale.
Depends on which side of the pond you are.
and we all know that UKside is the only side that counts, what with USside being nothing more than an errant colony.
Um… no it doesn’t matter.
Unless UK does series in only one season.
Series finale means it’s the end of the series. No more episodes. Maybe some cheesy reunion movies, but the show is O. V. E. R.
Season finale means it’s just the end of the season and unless the network/producers, etc decide otherwise, you will see more of it.
Well, I can see where they would say series finale… If they say each season is a series by itself.
But how confusing.
“Well, the series finale of Doctor Who is tomorrow.”
“NNOOOO!!! I LOVE that show!”
“Um, it’s scheduled to return in the fall.”
“DON’T DO THAT TO ME!”
This song is over, but the story never ends.
Yep we’re just a errant colony with more land, people, and resources than you Brits.
I so have the hat Monica is wearing. Ftw! I, too, can make a webcomic fashion statement! Oh, and I’m well pleased with how all this has turned out. Can’t wait for the next adventure/hijinks. 😀
When I was in college, we had to explain to a girl from China what Groundhog Day is. We then had to explain to her what a groundhog was.
Do you know how hard it is to explain to someone what a groundhog is when they’ve never seen one?
BTW great strip as always, Paul.
yeah sure… a picture is worth a thousand words. failing that, a dictionary applied liberally to the skull should suffice.
I dunno–a fat little rodent that lives in burrows in the ground?
Okay, which is gonna be the better untrained psycho-analyst – the barista or the bartender?
Depends on where they’re heading, though. They might be heading to the Cerberus Club……..
which is an interesting point, since Monica was such a fan of Daren’s bar in the past (when shelly first started trying to exploit Tepoz, Monica’s first thought was it could put Daren out of business), but now every time Monica heads out, she goes to Cereberus instead of Daren’s. Maybe they had a ‘falling out’ off-camera. (>^_^)>
Daren’s is a bar, not a nightclub… not really flashy lights and dance floors. As they are looking for in Cerberus club, plus, they seem to “know the owner” and etc… so they have… well.. somewhat unrestrained access it seems, with openly poiting into the club at times, etc.
Oh who am I I kidding? (You have a double I there, which may be appropriate for Tina but is probably not what you intended.)
And it should be “auras’ auras,” because there’s more than one aura.
Hit refresh, should be all fixed. =) Thanks much! =)
Fantastic. Just… awesome.
It’s been something like a decade since I first saw Groundhog Day, and this is still the best reference to it ever. Awesome!
And Monica wakes up to her clock radio, and Sonny & Cher’s “I’ve got you, babe” is playing on it…
Hee hee heeeee… 🙂
Ohhh Do we get to see Bill Murray make a special guest appearance? 🙂
Come to think of it, we haven’t seen Monica’s dad in the strip yet…
Ah… Monica’s gone back to the “Veronica Lake” look (i.e. hair over one eye)… all is well in the world. 🙂
I sooooo hope this isn’t it. Any chance that we’re going to see the girls getting back to real life again? What am I saying, I doubt Pablo is just gonna give up on it, I’m sure he’s got plenty more escapades in store for the girls. 🙂
In recent years, Ma would make sure we had some sausage to eat on Feb 2nd. When she would mention it, somebody would have to ask why. “Ground Hog.” she’d say. So today’s installment makes me crave breakfast and Bill Murray movies.
Don’t drive angry!
You actually crave Bill Murray movies? My deepest condolences.
“Groundhog Day” – 1993
On the DVD, Harold Ramis states that the original idea was for Bill Murray to live February 2nd for about 10,000 years. Later he says that “Phil” (Bill) probably lived the same day for about 10 years.
So he lived the same stretch of time around 3652 times, puts the whole 57 or so times of our story in perspective.
Ah fashions … you’ll cringe to look at yourself that way 10 years from now. You think you’re hot stuff now. So did all those people (black and white) who sported blow-out afros at one time. Giggles should ensue when you see a picture of yourself in one of those knit caps with the dorky long … umm … what ARE those hangy down things on Shelly’s cap called anyway?
Naaaaaaaw, Tassels were cute 10 years ago too 😀
Tassels never go out of style. 😀
They all look so *happy*. YAY!
(Also, Monica and Shelly look adorable! I so want Shelly’s hat.)
Unless I’m mistaken, Monica’s hat is a “chullo,” a peruvian/inca knitted cap, and those dangly thingies hanging off the ear flaps are ties, but it’s totally uncool to tie them apparently, because you never see anybody doing it. — tying your chullo ties is evidently as uncool as snapping the chinstrap on your bill cap with fuzzy ear flaps — which is the ultimate fashion fox pox.
Shelly is the one wearing the chullo. =) Monica is wearing a newsboy hat.
Glad I’m not the only one around old enough to remember Veronica Lake. Which is who Jessica Rabbit got that whole long blond hair vibe thing from.
Monica in a chullo, and Esther Chuah who draws “Catalyst” is doing an internship in Quito, Ecuador. Coincidence? or Not!
So, exit girls with bodacious auras, and friend, to the strains of “El Condor Pasa” off in search of celebratory refreshments. Works for me.
Oop. I knew that. My mousetake. As I say, I’m old enough to remember Veronica Lake, so I’m liable to have a senior moment now and then. *goes back to corner, puts pointed hat on, and sits meekly*
Girl’s night out! They deserve it!
I’d like to see Kevin rent that DVD and get perplexed why Monica runs from the room screaming lol
Awww, but Tina cut her hair! 🙁 I liked her with the long, flowing raven-locks!
Whoa! And i didn’t even notice!
Yep it was cut the last time we saw her as well. 🙂
Yes, women who cut their attractive long, flowing hair are much like Samson in that they lose a lot of their “power” when they do.
slowly seems like all the Wapsi-women are cutting there hair short. Shelly started a trend. Poor M’s gonna be next.
*just laughs from the future*
Oh you’ve no idea.
Love the fashions in the second panel!
A cool saving of the universe deserves cool outfits. ^_^
Now for the ominous return of Roy!
An annoying feature of the current site design is that when i click on “Comments”, it takes me to the bottom of the list, so that i have to scroll back up to read existing posts.
It must be browser specific. It takes me to the top of the comments. I have to scroll up a bit to get back to the art.
I’m using Opera.
I’m using Firefox, and I get taken to the bottom as well. But a quick tap on the “Home” key returns me to the top. Does it in Google Chromium and Arora too.
You may never look at chullo caps quite the same again:
ST Chullo Caps
Anybody else dig that Stargate SG-1 episode with the time loop? Especially when the abuse starts? I like the golf bit.
“Right in the middle of my swing!?”
I LOVED that episode!! ^_^
At the end, I personally was amazed at Richard Dean Anderson being able to eat oatmeal sexily at Sam. That’s some acting, er, chops.
I always wondered if they already knew how to juggle or if they learned how just for the episode,
Best punchline EVER.
Love love LOVE the outfits M and Shelly are wearing.
Rowr to both of them.
I read this three days in a row and that groundhog day joke keeps getting funnier each time!
Now, if Pablo want to mess with us, he’ll repeat THIS comic on Monday. 😉
I just had a thought: what would be the first thing that Mayahuel would say to Tina upon seeing her?
My bet? “I’d like an Earl Grey tea, hot. And you’re welcome, by the way.”
After which, we find out that she gave Tina a bit of the Golem formula as payback for killing herself to protect Monica.
Adorable hats are ADORABLE.
