    Oh, no. The marriage lasted less than a year. I lost touch with them decades ago.

    One of the most expensive weddings I ever attended was also memorable for the bride walking down the aisle with a black eye the groom had given her moments before. She felt trapped, knowing the wedding was a mistake, but pressured because her father had spent so much money.

    I’ve seen no other signs of Toni’s being a control freak. Indeed, she used to let Shannon walk all over her, and it was Bwad’s involvement that began moving her and Shannon’s relationship onto much more solid ground.

    Do we know anything at all about Shannon’s mother? Was Fishbait ever married to her, or was she just a brief girlfriend, or what? And didn’t Shannon have a younger sibling at first?

    Is Crystal wearing one of Piro’s scarves?

    “For the love of God, Montresor, let me out!”

    We seem to have moved from a completely pointless and illogical arc about Pru, Quill and Luann to an equally pointless and illogical arc involving Bernice, Gunther, Piro and Tiffany. I realize this is only a comic strip, but the Luanniverse is becoming more and more surreal, and not in a good way.

    Suspension of disbelief is all very well, but this is disbelief being hung by the neck until dead.

    I’ve taken to leaving the strip alone for a stretch of days, then reading a bunch of them at once, rather than checking each day. I don’t expect I’ll stay with it much longer. Too much “sawdust in the oatmeal”, as my great-uncle Frank used to say.

    Many years ago, in Peanuts, Lucy was showing Linus her “git” list, of all the things she expected to “git” for Christmas. Linus said “Where’s your ‘give’ list?” Lucy said “My what?” Linus said “I knew it”.

    I grew up with the illustrations by Louis Darling, and was never as comfortable with the new artist.

    In fairness, the party and the ferret episodes happened before Bern was an RA. Only Piro’s most recent overnight stay happened after she had an official title.

    I agree that she’s being hypocritical, but Bern does have more than a bit of myopia when it comes to looking in the mirror.

    She’s trying to grow up, which means, on the one hand, discharging the responsibilities of her position as RA, while simultaneously making “adult” decisions about her own nocturnal company. You and I might think she let herself get manipulated by Piro, but she wouldn’t rationalize it that way.

    I also think that rule is idiotic and unenforceable. It wouldn’t have flown at Berkeley forty years ago!

    Finally, I wonder if Gunther is maybe protesting just a bit too much. I think there really wasn’t any “doing” going on in there (with the lights out?) but he secretly wishes there were, whether he’ll admit it or not. He did have a crush on Tiffany at one time, no?

    Caldonia made an interesting point. We don’t even know what the show is yet. If it’s some sort of play or musical, and if it opens in three weeks, it might be a good idea for the cast to start rehearsing pretty soon now.

    Do we know anything about who’s in the show? Will Luann sing? What is Quill doing? We know that Pru wrote it, and intends to direct it, but who’s producing it? Mr. Grey?

    Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme are four season*ings*. Not the same thing at all.
