Newb! [11/8/06]

Oh, Jack. Second banana to the second banana. Although I did love his facial expressions and Stan's puppy-dog, tail-wagging enthusiasm. I hope his excitement is a sign of caring for Michelle, and I hope his brainstorm won't end in total disaster.

On that subject...what do we think Stan is planning now? :evilgrin:

Stan has always seemed to me to be a bit of a lawyer-type. The kind who spends a workday in court insulting the others sides lawyer, insinuationg that he is incompetent, criminal and lazy.

And then when the day ends the two goes fishing, or surfing.

In other words, he seems to be a good guy who is (maybe too) good at the dissasociative "Only doing my job/duty." Or "its part of the game".

I'd expect him to be good at not taking things personally.

One of those instances where you can tell perfectly what someone's thinking without thought bubbles.

This is very... indiscrete of Stan. Is he really yelling all of this out in the middle of the school hallway? Well, I suppose he's speaking generally enough that someone overhearing a sentence or two wouldn't know what he was talking about. And I'm sure they have the comic strip "only characters drawn are present and overhearing" force-field around them, too.

Speaking of overhearing, I'm glad Katy-Ann's listening in. If any part of this plan bodes ill for Michelle, or if it goes sour, it might be a good thing for her to have a friend who knows what's going on. Especially since it seems to be the one who tries to be nice and hold her head above HS politics.

Haha, Jack is awesome. He has always been my favorite character. If this arc primarily involves Jack and Stan, I for one will be a happy camper.

I love the way Stan is drawn in the middle frame. :)

"NEWB"

Postby daanton on Wed Nov 08, 2006 3:28 pm

Gee, if "newb" does mean "newbie", then I'd say things certainly have changed from when I was in high school--back then, we called such people "freshies". :evilgrin:

... "freshie?" "Freshie" meant "virgin" when you were in HS?

I do believe they know she's a "newb". And since she and Stan seem to be in a relationship, they'll know they're together. Stan's quite a playboy so..it's quite obvious.

i don't think it's safe to call it a relationship just yet... but I can sure see Michelle taking it as one.

What I most noticed was the "Tees and Cues" at the bottom of the page.

That's it for "Behind Closed Doors"? No more snugglebunnies?

I don't think they're going to just end the stories where they are because we're in a new chapter - we still have to find out about the phonesex story with Nick, Charisma and Aggie! But I'm guessing this is the end of the explicit sex scenes. (Darn..)

Michelle definitely sees it as one
but Stan struggled to get to her, and really likes her. So I'm quite convinced that he wants to stay with her for a while.
At least till he discovers her absolute lack of personality.


^we already know what happened. Aggie overheard, she was crying and thinking of her mom. Charisma was done and went back home. It's over folks!

What do we think "Tees and Cues" means, anyway? T-shirts and social cues? Golf tees and pool cues? :roll:

It seems clever, with the play on Ps & Qs, but I'm so curious. Maybe Stan's plan will make it all clear.

It's gonna be about a school play and Gisele's gonna draw in T Campbell as the overly expressive drama teacher. EMOTE!

Gisele's going to get her turn to be in the comic later on in a murder mystery storyline called "Arsenic and Ol' Lagace" (a title that probably works better by mispronouncing her name).

I know the trend is to start a new thread with every strip, but that's confusing (at least for me) and I shall try once more to buck the trend. That said, it's interesting that Penny and Brandi are hanging out after Penny reacted the way she did in the library. Maybe that was just frost at the hint she's "experienced" rather than frost toward Brandi, but that's still a lot of freezing going on. Also, wtf is Stan doing? It looks like he's about to run another presidential campaign, which would perhaps not be the ideal response for this situation.
