At any rate, I don't want to be John about this, saying "My blog! Don't touch!". But the fact is, I just now pulled up my LJ and saw the thread, saw that there was a somewhat heated discussion going on that I knew nothing of and that I hadn't been monitoring, and also saw that someone was chiding the OP, thinking it was mine. It all took me by surprise, to say the least.
So in short, I'd like people to feel free to discuss anything they want on here, but I do need to be able to monitor everything. Which I can't do if other people are starting threads without my knowledge. If a subject needs to be discussed in enough depth that it requires its own thread, I'll open a new one, as I have in the past. Otherwise, it should be my call. (Also, if someone could tell me (again) how to set it up so others can't start threads, thanks in advance!)
Now, on to the strip!
Panel 1: More exposition for people who didn't read yesterday. No, it's not her daughter. It's actually a soap-opera actress whose headshot Elly carries around. She's living in a fantasy world, you see; all her children died in infancy. Terribly sad. And for further expo, we also get Liz's age. And I know I'm a nitpicker, but this is only her second year of teaching, plus a brief stint student-teaching. So it hasn't really been "a few" years.
Panels 2-3: What is this, an eHarmony profile? Next she'll say Liz loves long walks on the beach and dining by candlelight!
Panel 4: Huh? That's not even a pun! Unless the female officer is taking a dig at Morsel, implying that he's simple. And I seem to recall Eric having that facial expression a time or two, before he was exposed as a cad. At any rate, the suspense is killing me. Not.
