And then I thought, "Hey, let's try a 'who'd you like to have Jeph just "drop in" on' poll!"

That's how you got 21 options today, kids. Go nuts.

I don't remember who half these characters are. :psyduck:

I remember Wil, though. Wil the poet barman. I liked Wil.

I want to see pretty much all of those people. The only ones I don't really care about are Natasha, Ellen and Gina Riversmith. Amir, Wil, Luna, Sara, Amanda and the tSB crew are the faves.

The "Too Many Options" thing was intentional, especially when I realized I'd hit 15 choices.

I voted for Ellen, more or less because she had actually been a key player in the strip for a while.

EDIT: I checked the Wiki - Of the list, the five characters who've we seen the most in the strip are Ellen, Wil, Natasha, Amir, and Amanda.

If we get Gina Riversmith, we MAY just get a repeat of the Milk Ninja episode. And I for one would really like to see that. :D

I'm gonna cast my vote for Clinton though. He didn't really get a fair introduction (like Angus, to be honest), and maybe if he's taken the time to cool down a bit he'll be able to approach CoD and Hannelore in a more measured, sensible fashion.
That and he also reminded Hannelore how much she missed her dad, and I think it'd be good if Clinton pressed that issue a bit, in a "you don't know your own dad?! That's NOT RIGHT!" kind of way.

I voted for Wil. I like him a lot. Especially since that bar held a lot of interesting moments in QC's history.

Also, Friday shall be the year of my birth. I'm expecting either ridiculous or awkward or some combination of the two.

Unless you were born in August, you were 19 when I was born, so yeah, you're technically old enough.

October. I graduated in '85, so anyone born (theoretically) June/July of 1986 would be old/young enough to be my child.

Funny story about that: I've been working with Juvenile Delinquents for 18 years now, and I've yet to run into a confirmed case of dealing with a second-generation delinquent. I'm sure it's happened, but many of these kids have no idea who their dads are.

COMIC: I love the little Alfalfa-like cowlick! If Jeph's adding a character, I'd be all for it.

I doubt Jeph will revisit them since the way he wrote them out of the strip was like dropping a bridge on Kirk, but I enjoyed the Meena/Steve storyline as it came out.

Marten has a point. There's looking, and then there's looking. Big difference!

You know, that response of Dora's seemed just a wee bit jealous. I mean, a certain flat, aloof stare, but still a wee bit jealous.

I'm calling jwhouk Dad next week, since my birth year is next Monday's strip, and he forgot Tortura.  :-D

She's probably thinking how rude he's being.  It's like saying "hold on, I see a girl more attractive than you!"

Dora has nothing to be jealous about because

a) Marten won't approach a girl because he is forever an awkward boy who never grows up.
b) Dora could get Marten back at any moment.  And she knows it.
c) The depressed, awkward boy with no money isn't going to get the single ladies to come to him.

b) Dora could get Marten back at any moment.  And she knows it.
c) The depressed, awkward boy with no money isn't going to get the single ladies to come to him.

Sad to say, but I think stout is right on all three points he made, especially point (c). Marten's being relatively broke isn't so much a problem, broke guys get girls all the time, but the depressed and awkward are the real problems. I've known guys who have it together career-wise, they're making good money in upwardly-mobile professions even in this lousy economy, but they still have no luck with the ladies-and it's because their ability to chat a lady up is lacking. They're like Marten, they stare but never (or hardly ever) approach. And they wonder why they keep going home alone.

And yeah, point (b) is dead on too, Marten is Dora's for the asking whenever she feels like asking. Which of course, is precisely why she never will. Such is human nature that we generally don't want or appreciate what we can easily have.

Marten has a point. There's looking, and then there's looking. Big difference!

You know, that response of Dora's seemed just a wee bit jealous. I mean, a certain flat, aloof stare, but still a wee bit jealous.

She's probably thinking how rude he's being.  It's like saying "hold on, I see a girl more attractive than you!"

Dora has nothing to be jealous about because

a) Marten won't approach a girl because he is forever an awkward boy who never grows up.
b) Dora could get Marten back at any moment.  And she knows it.
c) The depressed, awkward boy with no money isn't going to get the single ladies to come to him.

Here I thought she looked like Dora and Faye fused together.

Last time, Marten, this ended badly...
Last time, he got a new best friend out of it, what are you talking about?

I think he meant this time, which was much more recent than when he met Faye (which is what I assume you meant).

I like these polls.  Even if I can't remember who half of these people are.

Well, shite, I'd be depressed too if I realized those 3 points.  Still, you know what?  I say fair game.  He's got no one, and if he doesn't have it in him to go up and say anything then ogle away.  I'm not sure that practically breaking your neck to look is...cool, for lack of a better word, but he's free to do it.  Could you imagine Dora's reaction, though, if he followed her out and got her number then came back in to talk all nonchalantly?  Priceless.

That is a normal reaction from a confident person. Marten is not that person.  He's still got his hand on the back of his neck like an awkward little boy.

I'd be quite pleased if Marten grew some stones and tried that.  As it is, we've watched Marten be a nervous ogler for 8 years and there's no reason to believe that he won't be doing it for another 8 years.

A guy can get a girlfriend without having to chat up total strangers though. It just takes longer and they have relatively fewer options. Like Marten, they generally end up dating women they hang out with or otherwise see and talk to regularly, like coworkers, neighbors, roommates, classmates or say, fellow customers (or employees, even the owner!) at the neighborhood coffee shop or bar they go to regularly.

Usually in these cases, it's the woman who asks him out first or makes it crystal clear that she's available to him to go out with.

The girl in plaid was checking out Doras ass! I just know it  :-D Okay, okay... she was just watching over her coffee, but I couldn't help myself. Also, the girl design suggest that she maybe even has a some sort of personality thought up, but she may be to over-designed to actually appear again.
