I'm thinking that living with Renee for so long has given Brun some misguided ideas about things considered socially acceptable to say.

Renee already takes the mother hen job so seriously that she's having second thoughts about it. First she took care of Brun, presumably, now she's taking care of Elliot, but only under protest. She's learning to start taking care of herself-- not just her needs, but her evolution as a person.

I doubt Brun would fare better in this regard living with Faye or Pintsize. Really if your idea on what's acceptable to say to people comes from the cast of QC, you're a bit screwed already.


The idea of constantly sheltering people like Brun can actually prevent them from meeting the people and having the interactions they would likely need, to learn more. I'm not saying we should just dump them into the middle of New York City and say "Good luck!" but the other end of that spectrum could be robbing them of something very dear also. You take the Pintsizes with the-- who are the GOOD role models on QC? Possibly Dora? Jim Bean?

I'm not saying I wouldn't let my kids read QC, just that if it's all they read they might have some problems later on. But then they would probably get into trouble if their role model was Anne Shirley. Fortunately, most of the people who have stuck their foot in their mouth in QC have lived to tell the tale.

I live in a location that alternates 25-degree dry cold snaps and 40-degree downpours all winter (Fahrenheit). We got two inches of snow all of last year. The year before, we got hit with a storm that dropped around sixteen inches of snow, which is about four times our average amount for a whole winter.

Basically, no snow. Possibly for the next three months.

If you do it until you lose a hand, you get fireworks-- like in Johnny Dangerously.

For those who haven't seen it, imagine Breaking Bad, set in the 1930s, made in the 80s, by Mel Brooks (which it isn't. But it does have at least two cast members from his films.)

If you're using this as a disqualifier, I strongly recommend reconsidering it.

What works for you isn't going to work for everyone.

It doesn't really matter at this point, since I'm married. But I will say the couple of times I tried disregarding it, the relationship ended badly. Because sexual attraction never did grow if there wasn't any to start, and it was a constant source of conflict.

Although I'm in the northern hemisphere, I'm in California, so we maybe get snow once every 30 years or so at my elevation.

That'd be the '3 seasons or less' or 'what's snow' options XP

Poll answer:

I live on the Southern Hemisphere. We're moving towards summer now. No snow in the forecast atm.
I guess that'd be option #2. Sorry.

This is one of those things my father specifically advised the three of us not to do because it was shitty and underhanded. If I recall correctly, it was something to the tune of 'if you're friends and become something more, that's fine -- but if your goal is romance/sex from the beginning, don't.' Paraphrasing but that's the gist of it.

Something about that sentence strikes me as an absurdist joke, despite it's altogether plausibility. Perhaps the combination of the etymology suggesting shade, from the sun, the often use against rain, stereotypical, and the thought of snow---not necessarily early, for those whose year-end seasons bring snow---or a blizzard, all contrasting each other. The bright, warm sun---though in winter, what a lie that is! The restful, cool rain---though in summer, what a lie that is! The white, frosty snow---though always, what a lie that is!

Brun is a good role model.
I think you may be right about that, mostly. Considering her choices, how she makes them, mostly. Of course, there are some things that are difficult for her to do, but she works with them, rather than around, mostly. Isn't there an old aphorism, ``everything in moderation, including moderation,'' or something to that effect?
Hannelore, too, I think was a good role-model. Not as much moderation, but important is that she worked with her peculiarities.
Emily, too---in fact, I'm noticing a pattern here, that I also notice outside of fiction. Faye, Elliot, Renee, May, too, would be role-models, were we to know their perspectives, but we don't, so we're left with what might seem to be gratuitous lackadaisical (can't you be serious?), insecure (oh, toughen up!), impulsive (just think before you act), callous (how rude!) behaviours, which really stem from underlying conditions that---I think---are so well represented here, precisely because they are never made obvious. That's the nature of many psychological conditions---who aren't familiar might assume a normal person, then conclude, as though they were normal, that they're somehow choosing to be that way.
A good role-model is one who, despite their situation, does what they can to improve it, irregarding whether it seems so to others.

Clinton is about to make himself unattractive to BOTH of his love interests.

It won't work because I think he's a lightweight, but I really hope he's just trying to liquid courage up some first-time gayness.

Making Elliot a rebound is a shitty thing to do, because it's a recipe for disaster. The optimistic way for this to go is the recipe doesn't come out right and it leads to a wonderful time for both of them. On the other hand I think people expect characters who screw up to just do it forever. That's fair if it's Barry.

I also think if a guy you have a bit of a crush on asks you out, it's not a crime to wonder before you cross that frontier if someone you've crushed on for ages like Brun is interested. "Before I make a fool of myself doing this, I'm gonna ask." People should recall that Clinton was chosen over Brun by little more than a drawing of straws.

I'm still rooting for Clinton because I think he deserves happiness, even if he does this to himself. Don't assume I don't care about Elliot, he's an adorable sweetheart, I think people assume the worst with Clinton. Faye was screwed up forever and look how she turned out! (Good luck Clinton, you'll need it.)

Yeah, I think that Clinton was a lot more hopeful about Brun than most people thought, given that he's decided to get falling-down drunk. Something tells me that this is going to end up going very badly; badly enough that Elliot may wish to rethink a lot of things about him.

Or Elliot escorts a severely underhydrated and drunk Clinton home, tries to give him some water that he refuses or drinks only a little. Elliot tucks Clinton into bed, refills his glass, then crashes on his couch after a long day's work.
Elliot awakes early, as is his habit, refills Clinton's glass (and cooks him breakfast?), puts a note under his glass, apologizing about leaving for work before he woke. Clinton, memory about last night fuzzy, speculates about what might have happened, notices the note, and the glass of water (and the breakfast), and maybe gets the wrong idea.

Okay, now Clinton in the first panel seems cheerful. Is he:
(a)putting on a brave face and proceeding to get totally shitfaced because he got shot down by Brun, or
(b) so relieved that the two-way tension of his Brun/Elliot indecision has been resolved, that he is now in a celebratory mood and will probably get shitfaced anyhow?  :-\

Which one are you ta... Oh, that one. Don't even need to look at the strip now.


Elliot, in my corner of the world we have the expression "Bierdurst". Literally means... "beer thirst". It's when the beer goes down oh so well.

Clinton just got a brave moment, got the information he wanted (and probably very much needed), AND a reality check. I can understand this is a "I need a drink" moment.

B-2: indecisiveness has been overcome, it now just has to sink in to the subconscious. And to ease his conscious mind, he wants to mellow it out a bit. Which - in my experience - can go sideways really fast.

It is more along the lines of abuse of a decent beer, possibly even a good beer since we are talking classic micro-brews instead of what passed through a team of Clydesdale's kidneys. :-D

Wil knows the 'needs many beers' look.

I like the way the beer-pulls are shape coded. Wil can give you the proper beer even in the dark.

Clinton.  No.  *bops with newspaper*

I hope Claire wasn't doing anything too important or inappropriate for the Disappointed Big Sister look...

Quote from: N.N. Marf
A good role-model is one who, despite their situation, does what they can to improve it, irregarding whether it seems so to others.

I think Bubbles is a good role model. Jim recognized her as a good influence on Sam.

And this is what... after two drinks?

Elliot, carry Clinton home then call him tomorrow. The night is screwed.

All is not necessarily lost. Elliot is a big softy and is probably able to overlook Clinton's behavior (especially given Clinton's inebriated state). Still, I hope that Claire gets wind of this and chews out her brother.

To quote a certain redhead...

"This is where the night goes from 'we had fun' to 'mistakes were made,' isn't it."
And there it is.

Clinton's drunk, but he's not that drunk. He has no excuse for that; he's just being bitter.
