Sven isn't so much oblivious as he is disinterested, or perhaps jaded.

Man, don't you hate it when girls dirty up your napkin with silly numbers? I know I…never had that problem, really.
Actually, since he's ignoring them, Sven probably gets three times the 'hits' now.

They have a cave troll.

Wow, Sven sure is in a funk. I kind of feel sorry for hi- wait, three girls have given him their number!? Dude, sober up (mentally ,not from drunkeness)!

Sven is perfectly sober. He just can't have the one woman he wants.

nah, that's not the 'can't have the girl he wants' distraction, that's the 'feels like shit for hurting a girl he likes' depression.

I hope the return of Sven means we'll get to see his intern Lydia (it is Lydia, right?) again. Not because I want them to get together--that ain't gonna happen--I just like her feistiness and refusal to tolerate Sven's slips into jerkassery. Don't get me wrong: I like Sven, and his jerkass moments have gotten fewer and farther between, but he still has them, and with his not stopping by at CoD anymore (except that one time) even to see Dora, someone's gotta be there to keep him from relapsing into the guy who literally tossed Marten at one of his exes to distract her because he lacked the cojones to face her himself.

This strip reminds me of that episode of House where House, Wilson, and Chase go speed dating.
House bets Chase $100 that even if he acts like a major douche towards all the women there, he'll still rack up numbers just because of his looks. House wins, clearly.

Did anyone else wonder what the hell happened to the magical reappearing fork?

I know it's weird. But one panel, holding fork. Next, no fork. Another, still no fork. Then he's chewing, holding fork. It's not laying on the table, or the plate. WHERE DID IT GO?! MY BRAIN CANNOT TAKE THIS WTFERY.

Oh, and also - I am glad to see Sven again. Amused by his cynicism towards being hit on by his previous "type".


On another note, I too suffer from oblivion on the whole "being hit upon" thing. By dudes, 'cause I am a chick, and a straight one, but same basic concept, yeah?

Ok figure two bean grinders, two big coffee-makers and an espresso machine...   Just a quick look on Craigslist shows I can have all of those for about $2,000.

Then you spend another $1,000javascript:void(0); on tables and chairs... and about $500 on basic cups and spoons and saucers.

Another thousand to put down rent and deposit...  and $500 for the permits/inspections.

Then you spend $250 on supplies:   coffee, milk, creamer, whatnot.

Roughly $5,000.    Her parents could have fronted her part of it,  bank-loans cover the rest... hard work at a previous job saving every penny...     

Once you are open and have a market share you start reinvesting in the business... buying better machines,  custom cups and saucers,  remodeling... hiring extra workers,  advertising blitz...


I'm basing this partly on my experiences starting my business.   I started off with a yellow Chicom lathe and mill for $1,500 and at this point I'm working for myself,  I reached my goal of becoming  a full-service machine-shop/molding company.

Well of course we noticed!  But there's not as much to talk about with him (just a moustache) as there is with whatever the fuck is going on with Sven!  

Personally, I'm wanting him to write a country/pop song about the 3rd crusade.  It'll be a flop, of course.  And the beginning of a huge downward spiral into depression and self loathing which will force Lydia and Penelope into an interventiion involving a lot of good cop/bad cop yelling and the like.  

Or not.  

I am ashamed to say that I am that oblivious when it comes to women hitting on me.

Same here.  Either that, or they just don't.  Actually, I'm pretty sure it's the latter...

Probably something to do with the cursed enchanted ring on my finger.

Cool to see Sven and Wil again, despite Sven being all pouty-pants.  I guess the split with Faye sorta has him off his game, but if I remember right, he was going to 'swear off girls' or some such before the whole interlude with her started.  Maybe he's back on track with the whole not-fucking-around-constantly thing, who knows.  I do like his intern, so it would be cool to see her again -- hey, maybe she knows Cosette . . . or Tai . . .

Is it weird that the main thing I want to know from today's strip is whether Wil's mustache is real?

Jumping on the "oblivious to advances by ladyfolk" band wagon. Though there is of course the possibility that they've never actually happened to me, there have been a few instances where I realized days or weeks later that someone may have been hitting on me at a particular event. The one girlfriend I've had, had to ask me out, and when she did I at first thought she was joking (other people were involved and it wasn't a direct question, sue me). When I realized she wasn't I said yes and we got along fine. Why yes, the relationship was ended by her 2 months later, and no I don't really know why (though she's still friendly), why do you ask? Sometimes Asperger's pretty much sucks.

More like 15 K by my estimates. Didn't research enough to give a cost breakdown, but I live in California and it costs about 80 grand to start a restaurant here, minimum, even in a previously occupied space. She has a cafe devoted to one product, but it's still not going to be cheap even in a state with lower overall costs ( I seriously doubt that she found a place that had a bathroom and a basement large enough to be considered for business expansion with rent AND a deposit for only $1000, no matter what the  local economics, and especially not a (guessing) a thriving 2002 Massachusetts town), and it's going to be way more than $5,000. Also, you forgot a few things. Assuming that the place was bare when she moved in but in good condition (clean windows, no holes in the walls, bathroom facilities already there) there's still painting (and the prep work), decorations, the board, the sink and counter, and whatever else I forgot too that she still has to buy. And a fridge, and a- stopping now.

B-but, but I commented on its veracity first...

…the beginning of a huge downward spiral into depression and self loathing which will force Lydia and Penelope into an intervention involving a lot of good cop/bad cop yelling and the like.  
Now we're cooking.

I don't think enough time has passed for Wil to grow a mustache like that, unless, of course, Wil is especially follicly gifted. Or QC universe has MiracleGro for hair. Which would make it utopia indeed for some, if the Bosley/Hair Club/Hair-on-a-Doornob adds and the like are giving the straight tell.

Of course, if there is MiracleGro for hair in the QC-verse, there simply has to be someone out there who's tried to turn him or herself into a Wookie.

It's because he's the stereotype.

Also, what with his former line of work, he could have burnt it off...


but mostly he represents that douchey dude who is balding at the ten-year reunion, with a pot-belly.

Ok figure two bean grinders, two big coffee-makers and an espresso machine...   Just a quick look on Craigslist shows I can have all of those for about $2,000.
And the espresso machine was pretty dodgy, and even possibly second-hand.

Boo. Not happy to see Sven again. He could fall off the face of the earth, and I wouldn't care ooooone bit. But, hey, Wil!
I would prefer getting Raven back.

She might be the same thing in the female version, but at least she's funny.

(old) Raven is not a female version of (old) Sven.  She's just not smarmy and on the make enough. 

Then again, I don't think any woman could be.

Meena comes to mind. I was just reading the sequence where she and Steve meet, and, reading it with foreknowledge, her actions take a slightly different meaning. Of course, that may be more devious than smarmy.

I agree Raven isn't smarmy at all. On the make? Well, she has all these ploys for getting boys, does she not? Even has a makeout address book as I recall. And she played D&D to have those poor guys salivate over her and giver her breaks and advantaged. And…
 Y'know, Raven just might be on the make.
