I'm looking over all the thread speculations about why Deirdre is saying 'bitch bitch bitch' in the third panel. I dunno about y'all, but I almost right away figured that Deirdre is rolling her eyes at Ryan's complaints and mocking them. Bitch bitch bitch, complain complain complain, et cetera. I doubt it has anything to do with anyone else being in the room.<P>I wish it were the other way around, though. I'm worried that this will turn into a full-blown argument that endangers their relationship. >.< As I am a geek myself, I've been rooting Ryan on, and would hate to see his good fortune to collapse.<P>------------------

I saw it and immediately thought "good-natured banting between two people who are very close". She's teasing him about complaining about a slight inconvenience in meeting times when a year ago, he couldn't get a date to save his life. And his comment about getting a job there is equally sarcastic.<P>------------------

I'll agree with that last one, Sterling <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>"I can write my own OS and port Unreal Tournament to a Palm Pilot... of <I>course</I> I want a service-sector job! Minimum wage and long hours are my life's ambition!"<P>------------------

Let me appologize in advance for this post.<P>When Deirdre says "Bitch" to Ryan it is Joshes subtle way of foreshadowing that Ryan is actually female! Deirdre know this, as the only one in the Avalon Crew. Though... Alison might know. He knows a lot of things.<P>This started when Ryans parents wanted her to enter a very prestigious, but male-only, kindergarden.<P>While Ryan <I>has</I> become somewhat introverted as a result of this masquerade, she has benefited enormously from the kindergardens advanced CS program.<P>Hmm... I think I'd better stop now.<P>------------------

I understood it to be Deeds frantically trying to warn Ryan about the rabid female dog charging toward him from off-panel.

I think it's fairly clear that Deirdre is commenting on her own bitchyness and in so doing making it clear that she doesn't mean it and is ust letting off steam.<P>She says 'Why don't you work at Tim Hortons Too?'
She then adds 'bitch bitch bitch,' to indicate that she doesn't really mean it.
When Ryan says 'yeah' she reiterates 'bitch bitch bitch!' to make him understand that she didn't mean it and it's not such a good idea.<P>It's obvious! (hmmm, I should probably stop using that word.)<P>Pimple.
