"Why were you baking cookies at 1am?"

Is there such a thing as a bad time to bake cookies? ;)

"Why were you baking cookies at 1am?"

Is there such a thing as a bad time to bake cookies? ;)

When the house is burning.
When you're drowning.
When you're being mauled by a grizzly bear.
When you're in a business meeting.
When you already have cookies and have forgotten you've already made them.
When you nil past mouth.

Note that those are the only times its a bad time to bake cookies.

Disagree.  Add: when you've already started mixing ingredients only to realize you don't have a key one.

A trick my friend used to do was to keep a batch of cookie dough on hand in case of guests, and could act like they just so happened to be baking cookies right then so it wouldn't seem like a bother and still get fresh baked cookies.  I wonder if Ms. A knows that trick...

Nope. You may not personally finish the job in that case, but it's not universal.


The one time that happened to me, I covered the mixing bowl and ran to the store. Yes, the nearest store that was open was a 30 minute drive, but once I started making the cookies, I had to finish. The joys of OCD.

Has anyone else noticed Mrs. Augustus doing the Claireface in the second panel?  :claireface:
More like Claire frequently does a Momface.  Intellectual property an' all, y'know.

300 years ago in the same area she'd be known as Mother Gusta (the one with powers).  She was accused of witchcraft, but the magistrate was mighty fond of her cookies and had the accusers hanged instead.

Being a little pedantic, because that's just how I am, on the caption from yesterday's comic, that should be "drunk and disorderly".  :-P
It should be indeed, but O'Malley was still half snoggered when he wrote the report.

Picky note: they didn't say they wouldn't finish the job, only that it's a bad time to be making cookies. Possibly for the exact reason you've just described. BTW I would do exactly the same thing, and I am not OCD (not even in the trendy but medically incorrect sense of the word).

Touchť. I suppose that could be considered a bad time to bake cookies. At least until you've been to the store to get the missing ingredient.
However, I also disagree with a couple of the other "bad times to bake cookies."
Quote
When you already have cookies and have forgotten you've already made them.
When you nil past mouth.
1. You can never have too many cookies, so already having them doesn't mean it's a bad time to make more.
2. I have never seen the phrase "nil past mouth", but I assume they are referring to the medical term NPO (nil per os, which actually translates as "nothing by mouth", and is written out as the full phrase in medical documents), which is a very short-term situation - usually only 12 to 24 hours. I have been under that restriction a number of times - usually before having an MRI, but also before surgery. If you make the cookies while you are NPO, then you will have them waiting for you as soon as you're allowed to eat again. I suppose if you happen to be in the hospital at the time, then it would indeed be a bad time to bake cookies. But then again, any time you're in the hospital would be a bad time to bake cookies (and that one wasn't on their list).

You've never heard that one before? Yes, it is excellent. Snoggered/snockered has been around longer than I have. But it's kind of fallen out of use since the turn of the century. Does that put you in the under-thirty crowd?

Sadly disqualified from the under-thirties, but only just. I'm from the East of England, so maybe that's it? We tend to be more... blunt in our descriptions of inebriation.

I don't think I've come across that specific term for drunk/plastered/smashed/insert-your-favourite-term-here, but then again, it instantly sounded to me like an English word for "drunk", so maybe I have and it just got lost among its dozens of companions.

how did she know to open the door when Clinton was still at least ten feet away from the doorbell? 
Phone call/text message? If Clinton has learned from past experience he'd message first...

I missed this. I guess I got distracted by all that talk about cookies (which, by the way, is not a word I would use at home - I'd say "bikkies" - but I digress).

I just wanted to suggest that she probably just heard them talking as they approached. It's 1am, you could probably hear them from blocks away, even if they were speaking softly. And they are inebriated, so probably not.

I don't know about you, but in my younger days, my mother's ability to sense me or one of my brothers approaching the house at literally any time of day or night was uncanny, comparable only with my cats' ability to do the same thing.

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to award Near Lurker a bikkie.

So today's comic completely confirmed my desire for a side storyline starring Ms. Augustus (how does she not have a first name yet?), the Bianchis, Veronica, Jim, Henry and Maurice. At this point they're just as interesting as most of the main cast.

It's probably pretty much a given Ms. Augustus will meet Marten's parents and their partners sooner or later.  Not sure about the Bianchis, though.

She *should* have a first name! We don't even know for sure if Augustus is her last name IIRC.

Is 'shnockered' a regional variant, then?

I'm used to hearing an 'sh' in there.

This might be just me, but I find that the more Melon appears, the less I like her.

It might be the off-the-wall nature or that she's so eccentric, but every time she's in a comic her likeability drops five points.

Again, that's probably just me.

I'm not even sure if Melon is a sentient. You'd sooner be able to convince me that Corpse Witch has consciousness.

Well, she doesn't exist, and a drawing on a computer is not sentient. Our gracious host has made it unmistakably clear that he's portraying them as metal and plastic versions of people. Bubbles feels emotional pain, Momo has a sense of mission in life, so on and so on.

Melon is sentient, she just comes at reality at an oblique angle.

That way she can flank it, and gain advantage when she attacks.

So far, she and reality are engaged in an intense existential battle, and reality has yet to land a decisive blow.

I wondered that too, since she was apparently baking them for herself.

There is not a shred of evidence for this but I have an intuition out of nowhere that Brun is one of those people who has bad or at least idiosyncratic reactions to cannabis.

If Jeph goes down that road I will report him to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Characters.

I've seen it spelled snoggered, snockered, shnockered, and schnockered. Dictionary.com shows both snockered and schnockered. But I've almost always heard it as shnoggered, even though I've never seen it written that way. I wouldn't be surprised if there were a lot of regional variants, depending on how shnoggered the people are who are saying it.  ;)

I, too, find it to be excellent, but it's hardly new.  Early 20th Century if not older.  I'd considered using it's cousin "swacked" which seems to be of more recent vintage, circa the Second World War, but I decided snoggered was a better fit for our synthetic Irishman.

(My personal impressions only.  Someone must have made an academic study of terms describing states of inebriation.  I should find it.)

Indeed. Especially when you consider that the best guess for the word's origin is from an Irish word, snagaireact.

Since Clinton could smell cannabis in the air I think the cookies have no secret ingredients.  She doesn't know Brun well enough and wouldn't want to get her in trouble if she has to take a drug test in the immediate future.

Nothing about today's strip really surprises me. Every interaction the cast has had with Mrs A in the recent past has indicated that she's having a second adolescence of some kind. What today's strip reveals is that this is happening because, in some ways, she didn't have much of one in the first place. I'm wondering if she'd married Clinton and Claire's dad when she was quite young (got her MRS degree very early on in college, possibly)?

Meanwhile, Clinton is right: Making decisions when intoxicated is always a huge risk. This is mostly because being intoxicated makes bad choices seem like good choices and that's always a bad thing when making irrevocable choices. It's funny, in a way, just how many choices turn out to be irrevocable under specific and surprisingly common circumstances. For example: Dogs are good as companions; as space heaters, less so.

It was a good thing Clinton turned up when did as it may be that he has prevented his mother from turning into the neighbourhood's Crazy Dog Lady.

I have very little experience with the affects of pot, and none of it personal experience. Could the rambling of Mrs Agustus in the last two panels be considered typical behavior for someone who's only had a "little?"

Also, Mrs A, you don't need dogs for their body heat, you've got college boys. :P

I have limited direct experience (2 asthma attacks), but my older brother and most of his college buddies had "gatherings" (the statute of limitations has expired). It depends on the person and their mindset, but mostly 'yes'. The bit at the end is a stereotype for a reason.

Giving ClintonMom an incipient mustache does not make her cuter.
(your mileage may vary)

It is almost dali-esque.

I don't know, my old Labrador positively radiated heat.

There's a reason why there's such a thing as a "three dog night".

(Basically, it means it's so cold that you need to have three dogs in bed with you to stay warm.)

I missed this. I guess I got distracted by all that talk about cookies (which, by the way, is not a word I would use at home - I'd say "bikkies" - but I digress).

My grandma used to refer to chocolate biscuits as "choccy biccies", which I've always assumed was one of her Northernisms :')

No, the slang term 'Bikkies' is used at least as far south as London!

If Jeph goes down that road I will report him to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Characters.

Oh, you mean the "James R.R. Martin Anti-Red Wedding Society"?

Or its comics counterpart, the "Charles M. Schulz Football Kicking Society"?

Claire and Clinton have moved out.  Brun is still couch surfing at Renee's where there isn't really enough room for two people who aren't bunking together.  Mother A (she really needs a first name, Jeph) is empty-nesting and has two vacant rooms.

I think I may know where this is headed.

Nothing specifically Northern about that; I say the same in Southern England.  And for me, "cookie" is a specific type of biscuit, generally rather large, slightly soft and almost but not quite gooey.

One also wonders where Clinton learned the scent of weed...

Tho admittedly, he's in college. Not THAT surprising.

To be fair, it has a very distinctive stench. I think the only way it's actually tolerable is if you're high enough to not care.

Maybe Clinton was just too drunk when he first walked in, or maybe the smell of freshly-baked cookies was just too strong, but Iím kinda surprised he didnít notice the smell of pot right away. As cesium133 pointed out, it has a very distinctive stench.
