I thought this was settled in the previous WCDT—Faye had to go get a crossbow. If the wind picks up before she returns, she might have to study arrow dynamics.

Sorry about the late poll.

Damn, I should have read more carefully before voting. I chose cosmic waffles, because who doesn't like cosmic waffles (aside from Steve, who would clearly prefer Cozmic Crunch cereal)? But now that I see I could have voted for Angus in a blue dress with white piping, I regret my choice. Angus would look really cute in a blue dress.

He's headed to a con on Friday, and it's Memorial Day on Monday next week.

I'm betting breakup.

But then again,  it's not Thanksgiving week. THAT'S usually when he does breakups.

Is it just me or is a breakup actually the less depressing option? Also, what other breakup occurred on Thanksgiving besides THE breakup?

Now that I'm thinking about it, it wasn't a breakup per-se.

It was just the 500-510 strips happened right after Thanksgiving of '04.

Methinks there'll be an argument, some things will be said and someone will storm off (probably Faye, Angus doesn't seem to be the storming off type). Alcohol will be consumed, someone will use the ultra-rare superpower that is common sense to knock some sense into Faye's head.... And Angus will have gone to the audition by himself.

Either that or...light hearted shenanigans!

Extremely with Angus on the interruption opposition, especially since what I infer he was trying to say in the second panel answered all her subsequent questions. I believe that if he had continued in the second panel, he would have said something along the lines of  "...hypothetical, I saw a flier about an audition for the Nightly Show and in the extremely awesome case I got the job, I wanted to sound out if you were interested in joining me in New York, since that would be a big step with all of your friends here and I don't want my opportunities to hurt the one I love." I may be embellishing a bit.

He probably shouldn't have interrupted her to ask not to be interrupted, though.

Damn, I should have read more carefully before voting.
Perhaps you would like to try Westrim Polling Plus!, a 'FREE' service that gives you not one but two votes! And best of all you can switch options anytime! A FREE trial of our 'FREE' service will be available next week!

I think that was the bourbon.

Faye's got a point, Angus.

You mean where she stated the bleeding obvious? Well, I suppose so.

I'm finding everyone's speculation over whether this is all 'breakup material' far less interesting in the question of what Angus is going to say next.

Faye has leapt to conclusions; and so have we.

Probably not, but Angus looked pissed. Might be some badness we missed in the relationship, because that much glaryface doesn't seem normal for worried/annoyed girlfriend interrupting you, even if she's being kinda annoying.

He may be more conflicted than we know about falling off his desired career track. That would add tension.
