Here we go....

....Of course, in the original run, Lynn never actually showed the mystery door-answering "girl" in the strips.

Based on the strip I thought would be reprinted today

So, this is based on the strip that originally ran on 1/30/1981.  Lynn ran a new-run yesterday--I'm not sure if I'll just end up a day out of synch or just generally scrod.  Anyway, if you'd like to find the strip I referenced, search the strip catalog at the foob site using decision-makers of the future in your punchline search.

Probably a guarantee that we have Anne-and-Elly new-runs.

This strip is meant to follow up on the one that originally ran on January 28, 1981.  Yesterday's reprint originally ran on January 27, 1981.  So I suppose I am virtually guaranteeing that we will actually get new-run filler that continues Elly and Anne's coffee talk.  ::sigh::

In the likely event that this happens, you can find the strip I was referencing by doing a punchline search at the official foob site's search catalog, using the phrase spitballs in the dictionary.

Oh, and I know I'm having Lawrence dwell on the broken-leg thing.  He really doesn't want to break it again.

Lead-in to Lizzie's bathroom disaster

Click to enlarge
Over at Foobiverse, there was some discussion about how Elly managed not to hear Liz wreaking havoc in the bathroom--leading to the scene revealed in today's foob reprint.  This, I figured, is a likely explanation.  I know it's a bit of a retread of the reprint that appeared on April 9, 2009, but Elly is all about repetition and not-learning.

Hope this was worth the wait....

Here it is!  I hand-lettered to save a step and get this up faster.  Hope it's reasonably readable.  In the last panel, I know I should have done a Lynn-style longshot to get both Lawrence and April all the way into the frame, but for some reason, I was amused by the idea of only being able to see the top of Lawrence's head.

So, yeah--extended-play format with lots of extra exposition.  :)


Ugh, I have a lousy cold that is slowing me down.  Strip is penciled but still needs to be inked, scanned, and lettered.  I am hoping to get it up sometime this evening.

About that sitter...

Okay, so I am jumping back a bit in my time sequence for this one.  Chronologically, this comes before the NYE strip I ran on Friday, 1/1/10.

Happy foob year!

I love jazz!  I grew up with it.  So it really bugs me when Elly and Lynn show their usual disrespect for it.  (For a prime example, go to the "strip catalog" part of the foob site and enter "discordant" as your keyword search.)  So I wanted to show some respect and imagine that Phil and his band would be playing this:

Notice how Miles Davis makes no "tattica" sounds with his trumpet. ;)
