    T.J. has always enjoyed diddling Tiff — from the first days when he re-entered school in Brad’s class.
    .
    There is a certain chemistry there. A similarity.
    .
    He sees her as a fellow schemer, but must show her that he is better at it.

    TJ is stupid to be bragging about this.
    .
    Should’ve just quietly deposited the check.
    .
    He can be less than clever at times.
    .
    He lacks restraint.

    The locus of the strip has never been said to be California.
    .
    This is just an assumption by some readers here. There as been a long air flight to Hollywood, long car trip to Las Vegas, etc. These don’t all fit California.
    .
    It is an imaginary place.
    Yes, it’s in the US, but it could be anywhere without snow. Probably in the Western States.
    .
    Time zone detail might limit that.
    .
    But best imagine it in “Anyplace, USA

    Well, ‘narcissistic moron’ may be going too far.
    But Luann is a comic exaggeration of traits that include narcissism and foolishness.
    .
    How would you characterize Calvin of “Calvin and Hobbes”
    or Charlie Brown in “Peanuts” ?
    .
    Calvin is surely egotistical and wildly delusional.
    Charlie is a psychotic mess.
    But they are FUNNY.

    At least we didn’t get Fogarty!

    Montana said,
    Did we ever see who her roommate was or did I just not recognize what was going on that day?
    ..
    Luann is at home. No roommate.

    That Luann does things poorly should be no shock.
    ..
    Her basic character is comical because she is a klutz. (More even than you or I.)
    ..
    Her major failing is that she is often too self-centered.

    Being boy-crazy is another aspect, as is jealousy, especially of Tiff.
    ..
    We have to expect all this of her as she enters college.
    . .
    We see these kinds of failings in ourselves at times, so we can sympathise with her and hope for the best.

    Too many subplots can lead to things like you mention. The original Luann stayed rather close to her at all times. A couple subplots may be OK, but not more.

    Say, what ever happened to Elwood?

    I hope it’s not Fogarty — in this class at least.
    We need new faces.
    Best would be a heart-throb for Luann.

    If we have to retread, even Ann Eiffel would be more fun, or the guy in the wheelchair, or the bookstore manager, or the elderly retired lady.
    . . .
    I’d wouldn’t mind Fogarty as a fellow student in some class. Hope this will not just be rehash.
