Angus is in:

Trouble, with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'p' and that stands for 'pool'
A bit of a pickle.
Way over his head.
Complete and perfect control, in fact things are going exactly according to his master plan.
England! (figuratelvely of course (fuckin' figurative Limeys!))

I...I think I just pioneered Questionable Content/Godzilla slash-fiction. What the hell is wrong with me?

You're going to email the concept to Shin Goji over at Twisted Kaiju Theater and get him working on this.

Mothra would of course be Hannelore. Who else is the mediator between all the other monsters. The two fairy gaurdians would also of course be Pintsize and Winslow, or Momo and Winslow, I cant decide yet.

Rodan? Hmmm...the only character that makes any sense at all is Steve maybe.

Also, I now have a story in my head for a Questionable Content movie done in the style of Godzilla: Final Wars. I am lol'ing at myself so hard right now.

After some extra thought I decided that Pintsize should be BabyGodzilla.

Well*, Rodan is a gigantic mutated pteranodon. Mothra is, well, a moth. Oh, and also gigantic—not sure about mutated, as Mothra seems to have some sort of mystic origins involving teeny-tiny twin girls. But that's not important right now.

I find it mildly confusing that anyone expects violence over this; her father's death is the one thing Faye's never seemed aggressive about (she talks about doing so, but we never see it), which may be part of her problem. I really think this may be good for Faye, since a check on the sass, a honking suit of full-plate armor if ever there was one, might make her finally stop avoiding her problems. Actually, I wonder if she won't go to Angus and, if not apologize, at least acknowledge to him, as she did to Dora, that the incident was not entirely his fault.

In other words, growth opportunity for Faye. Which is why I voted for her talking to Corrine first in the last poll. Also why I don't find any viable options in today's.

*Yeah, I got post-jumped. But just look at all that typing! Think of my poor fingers, already sore from manipulating ornament hanger wires. No way am I not posting this thing.

Hey, I warned everyone that that entire scenario came to me in a fever dream last night.  Also, the violence I'm envisioning doesn't stem from this current misunderstanding, but from a competition to determine whether Faye will accept a date from Angus or not.

Okay, I gotta go finish my script for Questionable Godzilla: Final Wars and send it to Toho Inc.

I too agree that Angus needs to either get away from everybody or shut up.  He is seriously bringing everybody down with him in his angst.

The funny thing is, if she really watches Neon Genesis Evangelion, Marigold's seen this sort of thing go on over and over and over again—people so down on themselves that they simply won't accept any assurance they're not as terrible as they think they are.

But, then again, there was nothing more angst-filled than Evangelion.  That (and a day when I watched some episodes of Wedding Peach, traveled to my local anime club, and watched End of Evangelion) is the reason why I will never watch that series again.

Mothra's already in a committed relationship. Teeny-tiny twin girls, remember?

Which makes me realize a freaking moth managed to score the holy grail of dating—minus the 8 inch tall part, of course. Only other person I know of to pull that off has been Ken Wahl.

The phrase "Questionable Godzilla" sounds pretty awesome to me. I don't know why, but it does.  :-D

Angst is no fun if one is angsting alone. And has already been previously stated, Angus is behaving pretty normally for someone who just made a fool of himself (nevermind that it was partly Faye's sassiness's fault). People who angst typically won't shut up about it for days also. Things to look forward to!

Awww man, and I spent literally minutes trying to think of good options for today's poll. I thought I had all the bases covered. (actually, I spent most of the time thinking how to incorporate a refence to England into the poll in a way that made sense, in a Tom Stoppard, theatre of the absurd kind of way.)

In the end, I think this episode will be good for Faye, Angus, and Marigold.

Marigold will realize that Angus doesn't think of her like that and she should look elsewhere for affection.

Faye will learn that sass is not (always) the answer.

And Angus, while he may not experience any personal growth, he will enjoy the universal health care and frequent flyer miles when he applies for refugee status in Manitoba.

Ah, it's not your fault, it's my Great Expectations. I wanted like the Dickens for that reference to be something on the order of  "Just lie there and think of England." But, no matter how I stared at it, the text didn't change, even into a door knocker that looked something like a man's face with a bound jaw, which would have been, I suppose, as strange a Tale as one could find in any Two Cities.

One can actually find refuge in Manitoba? I thought one mainly found bison.

Is it just me or does it look like Jeph forgot about Marigold's haircut? It didn't look that long in the back. though the character she wanted it like has longer hair i guess according to google anyway.

Still bangs on front, long in back, just like she wanted. It's just not as coiffed as it was when she came back from the shop.

She probably washed all the fluffyness out. 

As per Angus' instructions... maybe she does have it bad for him.

More deer than bison - they're more in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

All I've ever done in MB is learn that German soldiers drink lots of beer, dance with each other and try to pick up First Nations women.  And some artillery stuff.

On the literal level, yes.

I was talking about the more esoteric, ephemeral meaning of attaining an arbitrary milestone, made significant only by the passing of a round number.
