Ugh. I hate this page. I took an extra day on it to try and fix it, but it didn't work.

Anyway, someone requested a sketch, but it must have been on a Z page. Something about raised eyebrows or something. You'll have to remind me!

I think you got the 'not quiet human' look quiet right on Alien Alis.

Dang, Alis' mom don't beat around the bush does she ?
She simply commands Sean to "be there", no escape!

Alis's Mom is too busy being a kick ass doctor to deal with petty things like asking questions. She is too busy kicking ass and taking names to do that.

By her standards that's a polite request... and don't you forget it!!!

Glad to see you're in one piece there, View. You didn't comment at all after 'Fwik'.

Here's that request - it was for an avatar:

A smiling, one-eye-brow-up close-up of the blond from Cheer. If that character has a name I know it not but she reminds me a lot of my tall, blond, professional-athlete wife - who I happen to be a huge fan of.

Sounds good! I deleted that Z page without checking if I needed any of the comments.

Psh, put out slop every week and you'll never improve, that's my motto.

There is some truth to that.
Gotta strive to get better.
And sometimes, it's just hard.

Obligatory, "That's what she said."

nitpicky grammar issue: should be "do you ever feel" not "did you ever feel"

Nope!

Oh ?
Intriguing!

then "have you ever felt"

"did you ever feel" is just awkward and wrong

"Do you ever..." changes the meaning of the sentence. It's makes it more of an ongoing diagnostic of one's reality, using a constantly shifting "now" as the point of reference.

"Did you ever..." refers to specific points in the past. Sean is asking Alis' Mom if the feeling of recurring weeks had ever happened to her sometime earlier in her life.

At least, this is how I'm interpreting it. Trying to dissect a sentence can get messy.

Poor Sean, so flustered that she needed to break the fourth wall and tell us so.

Alis' mom looks like she's channeling David Bowie (RIP)...
