Pshah. We all know that what we don't want on Saturday is going to rear its ugly head, and that's an pIanful Saturday. But if Sunday is cool, will that still raise the poings upward?
This one got a couple chuckles out of me, I'll admit. Though why Riff wouldn't use Tupperware(tm) for storage of scenti-mentals I have no idea. Afterall, there's less chance of leakage... but that's Riff for ya.
But as I'm feeling whimsical... we'll have a State of the Kitten Sluggy Grading. ;)
Sunday: One Kitten. I mean, really. You could have jokingly answered another question or something to that effect. Or even continued the story, showed Torg facing down the critter or something... *shrug* but it was rather evil of you. You know it, Pete, which is why you were sitting back with some scotch and listening gleefully to our screams of "Damn you!"
Monday: Two Kittens and a half-bowl of milk. Fun, but also evil in that we want to know what's going on with Torg! Our Torg! But it does answer a few questions... and the pants bit was amusing.
Tuesday: One wet Kitten, sans Milk. Sorry. I still don't find this strip amusing. It just doesn't work for me. *shrug*
Wednesday: Five Kittens with Mittens! (And milk) Now THIS is Sluggy Freelance. I still think Gwynn was apologizing to Zoe, not Torg... but still. Fun! ^.^
Thursday: Two Kittens staring at an empty milk bowl. Mmmm, sorry, the strip just fizzles somehow. Though Gwynn was cute.
Friday: Four Kittens! Hey, it did make me chuckle. Though Gwynn was right over Torg's shoulder... didn't she get a little bit of a wiff as well?
Ah well, I'm sure we'll see more mischief Sunday...
State of the Week: Three Kittens and milk. The week could have been stronger, but overall it was pretty decent and continued the storyline along. It also hints at future resolution of the DoL aftermath. And how long does the Scenti-Mental drug last? This could bode funny... or dramatic. Or both.
(Fortunately, the Kittens are happy, so we don't need to worry about a ribboning spree. Hey, my kittens aren't bloodthirsty devilkittens. Well, most of the time. *grin*)
