"Buying a boat" is definitely a middle-class cliche; cf. Us.

Okay, things are starting to approach the territory known as 'mistakes were made' and not necessarily the hilarious sort! I'm not expecting Steve to end up marrying anyone but I am expecting Marten to come to a decision or two about which he should really have consulted with Claire first! Can you say "Double Wedding"? I thought so. Either Marten will wake up with a ring in his pocket or he will bring home Steve, Dora and Tai to insist that Claire must do it because "you're so perfect together"!

I'm starting to wonder if Claire is listed on Tai's 'phone as "Cinnamon Roll, Perfect"! I used to think that they didn't like eachother but now I see that Tai clearly admires Claire's personality and drive!

Meanwhile, I'm wondering just how much stuff Claire will get in gift baskets that she'll never use or even be sure what it's for! Still, at least Bubbles is enjoying the fancy coffee!

I feel that way true justice will be served.  8-)
I still find it hard to believe that that actually happened and I'm under 40yo.

It didn’t. They named the ship itself the Sir David Attenborough, but named one of the boats upon it Boaty McBoatface as an appeasement measure  :lol:
I meant that 'Boaty McBoatface' became the most popular name.

It actually was...click on the "Most Loved Overall" tab

Ah! Right! Quasi Desert!!!   :)

Nothing's quasi about it. Sonoran Desert, in fact.


And yes, many people die of drowning in Arizona, but not because of  all the backyard pools in our major cities.

There's this thing called "flash flooding" that happens in arid environmenTS like ours.....

People drown in Arizona because it typically only rains during what they call monsoon season. During that time, quick building strong rain storms can drop a ton of rain in a short time. There are also a lot of crossings in Arizona called 'washes' where the road is either at ground level or close to it in dry riverbeds. You can easily go to an urban center and get caught out, meaning on the way home you might have to cross one or more of these riverbeds. If you misjudge the current or get too cocky, you end up a statistic as your vehicle is washed downstream and shredded.

Quite a bit of the blame is on the Arizona government for not properly building safe crossings. It is a lot easier and cheaper to just put signs out warning about the low water crossings.

I can recall when I was growing up and still living in south Arizona near the Tohono O'odham nation reservation, a couple of times I was almost a statistic. One was when I was 10 or 11 and my aunt came to visit. She took me to Tucson for some reason and on the way back she decided to shoot across a wash in her 65 mustang after she saw a larger truck go through it. The car started drifting to the left from the water pressure and we just barely made it out because she had hit the water fast, ending up in the opposite lane. Another time was when I was with my family in our ltd station wagon about a year later. We had went to town for groceries and I was sitting in the back in the flip up seats. My grandfather was generally pretty good at judging the washes, but we got hit by a small surge as we were going through and the car stalled. The back of the car where I was started taking in water through the semi open rear window. Some of our grocery bags were sucked out and I was lucky I had my little waist seat belt on. Some people on the other side noticed and were able to wade out to hook up our front with a chain, pulling us out.

Rushing water is scary and extremely dangerous. Sadly a lot of people find out only too late.

Funny you should say that...

"Buying a boat" is definitely a middle-class cliche; cf. Us.

Is it really that middle-class?  I'd imagine owning a canoe or a rowboat of some sort, or maybe an outboard at the most, would still be middle-class.

Anything bigger or fancier than that incurs enough costs that pretty much only the upper-class and the rich can afford it.  That said, I come from a suburban town apparently full of such people.

I spent a couple of minutes trying to decipher what was on that card Claire is holding... only to realize it’s upside-down and just says “To Claire”.

Also I am wondering what kind of visions Bubbles is getting from that coffee. Looks pretty nice hallucination so far, but that’s always when the velociraptors show up.

I personally do not have a boat - sold the Fiberglas canoe a decade or so ago.
Brothers in-law each have some version of a bow rider.
Bother has two and possibly three power kayaks if he can fix the motor on the last one.
He also has a two seater hovercraft which I do like to go out on the lake on.
No it has never been full of eels.
Lots of wild rice in the fall because mister hot-dogger loves side-slipping through the wild rice in the shallows of the lake. Yes it stings. Yes it gets into everything. E v e r y t h i n g !

Looking at Claire without pigtails I can only say this: The Floof has returned! Seriously, I can see why she prefers her hair shorter and in tails - managing that must be a nightmare!

Just in case anyone doubted Tai in Tuesday's strip, here is the proof: Claire is very, very good for Marten in every possible way. Panel 2 communicates such a wonderful level of love, trust and acceptance between the two of them. I particularly like how Marten so instinctively turns to Claire for reassurance and comfort whilst he's hurting and disoriented. No snapping or transferrance of his pain reaction. Just: "Wanna my hugz!"

You know, I think that Steve can handle a lot more alcohol than his friends. Panel 3 suggests to me that he is far more sober than anyone else. I also think that Wilson is Millie's designated driver to get her out of bars when she won't (or can't) shut off 'Drunk Mode'. He's used to it, uinfortunately. I suspect that he's hoping that she won't remember any of this!

I didn't make that interpretation.  I've seen  that look and it corresponds more to "I can't believe she instigated this" in my experience.

I agree with paragraphs one and two, and that Steve has a higher tolerance. But, I think it's more just buzzed bemusement.

I hope that by "happening," Claire meant "planned", with nothing farther along than "the ingredients and utensils are in the ready position." Otherwise, one of 'em should at least stick their head in the kitchen doorway. Once they're in the skillet, pancakes happen pretty fast.
Unless Bubbles is keeping an eye on things, or making the pancakes happen. Food prep might be an interesting academic or olfactory exercise for her.
Pintsize and pancake batter is a combination best left theoretical.

I love the expression Jones (?) has in panel 3.  The only sober guy in the group apparently.  I am usually the DD in my social group, so I have often had the same expression on my face while watching the antics of my drunk friends.

Steve's first beer is the one in the goblet. Then he tries the kind Marten is having. Next, the straw colored kind Dora ordered for Tai. Marten has switched to a more orangey one, so he tries that. Four different beers. Isn't that supposed to give you an exceptionally vicious hangover?

That depends on the period of time over which they were drunk, and their individual tolerance.

Like others, I think it's interesting that Tai and Claire both announced their presence in more or less identical ways. As I said previously this week, I think that it's interesting that Tai and Claire (who I'd previously assumed at most tolerated each other because of their differing views of how to treat a library) actually think and act in the same way quite a lot. I wonder if either of them know it?

So, now I'm wondering if the 'mistakes were made' were all Dora's. I suspect that Millie will be able to explain at least some of it. Assuming that she remembers any of it (Yes, I've seen Jeph's footer note; no I don't think he's serious about that).

Wondering what the little smiley creature in the background is - is it a pet rock or a tiny AI alarm clock or something?

I'm guessing that it's either a pet rock or some weird souvenir that someone bought either Dora or Tai at some point. A keepsake from sunny Amity Bay?

That's a good question. As there's never been indication of Tai's dorm-mates being around the Bianchi/Hubbard household, I'm assuming that this is whatever apartment Dora moved into after breaking up with Marten.

Now wait a minute: are Tai and Dora at Marten's? Is that Pintsize on the dresser?  And hello new AI character if that's not Millie in disguise...  I'm so confused!

Pretty sure that's Dora's cat Mieville there, and Tai says "our living room floor" which suggests that a) she's cohabitating with Dora now and b) Dora and Tai are at Dora's place.

IIRC, Dora moved to Amherst after breaking up with Marten.  And Tai was living in the dorms at Smif when we met her.  Don't recall if they if they got a place closer or in Northhampton since.  But it would make sense if they did.

Hence my confusion - if pancakes are going on at both places, that's an odd coincidence.  And what is that Pintsize-looking grin doing on the dresser???  Or did everyone land at Dora's and Claire came over to make pancakes for the crew?  I guess we'll learn when we tune in tomorrow to hear Marten say...

I don't see what's so odd about it. It's perfectly legal in Massachusetts for two different households in the same town to be making pancakes at the same time. We're progressive that way.

If being able to encrypt one's own memories is a common/normal thing then why did bubbles have to rely on corpse witch?

I suspect Bubbles wanted to not have the decode key herself so she could not theoretically re-open those wounds.

That, or Yay Newfriend has popularized and released a free 'Seal your own memory' app to prevent the Corpse Witches of the world from taking another sentient like Bubbles for a ride.

Or it's a new feature on newer models.  Or Bubbles-type AIs can't have it because we want to be able to scan their memories for war crimes without having the hassle of decrypting.  Or...

OK, I get the parallelism now, and maybe that's its own self-referential joke.
