So, it is easy to get which year it is now. 2006 or 2007 or 2012. (If her birthday’s on the Saturday, then “2007” is not included. )
Okey, nothing special had happened yet.

We’re in February? *checks my calendar* Huh, I’m way off. *fixes my watch, brings Valentine’s cookies to Thanksgiving dinner* Man, this is awkward.

But seriously, Rachel, Rachel, remember the last two gatherings Daisy threw? Those were really, really awkward, weren’t they? Why would you give Daisy any hope to bring lots more people into the same room?

It seems Rachel and Paulo have formed quite a bond. I never would’ve imagined those two would become so close after the awkward situations they’ve been in. But i guess that’s out of character for Rach, she’s really a cool gal. I’m somewhat hoping she and Paulo stay together, and this is coming from a once diehard PauloxLucy fan! They just seem so perfect for each other, both of them can enjoy their perviness, free of drama and all things awkward :3

And on a side note, am i the only person who misses Sandy? I really wonder what she’s up to… I hope we know of her soon! :D

Comment ID #262131

The bear’s staring at Paulo, reminds me of pillow talk, that was an awesome chapter.

Daisy has always had the ability to hang around people without them, and apparently us, noticing. No one should be surprised by now. I actually share that quality myself, except I don’t usually startle people by yelling out, and making my presence known. No, I startle them when they finally realize that I’m there. I don’t stalk, I just tease my friends. ;)

@Those_thinking_dirty_things_from_this_page: You have every right to, it makes Daisy’s reaction that much more funnier. :P

This sounds like the setup for a party quickly spiralling out of control, especially with booze involved if it is indeed “happy hour”. Honestly, I thought Rachel had more sense than to issue such an open-ended invitation. Hope she’s prepared to clean up the house afterwards.

@HongKat: the current year in the comic is 2008. See for example the poster in “Feline Filibuster” advertising the play as being in January 2008, or the calendar in Mike’s house in “December” showing December 2007. Keep in mind that Rachel’s birthday doesn’t need to be exactly on a weekend for her to throw a weekend party.

Paulo is overwhelmed, either that or he is still trying to comprehend her words. There is a 100% that, “someone,” is misinterpreting this so-called, “party.”

Whether it is Paulo’s or Daisy’s interpretation remains to be seen. :/

I like this character development, it’s doing for the other characters what the first book did for Mike and Lucy, it’s a nice break from the tense drama of some of the (now less) recent chapters

Now it all makes sense, Sandy said she could move back near mike, so he gets Lucy to leave so Sandy can move back and take her place… To which LucyxMike shippers would at last be lost at sea.

A birthday party is infinitely better than a study party, and the Domino’s add I keep seeing on this page is becoming more, and more relevant. This, in turn, reminds me of elementary school pizza parties, which are way more innocent than what Rachel’s party may end up being. Seriously, Rachel’s intent is questionable content, that heart in panel four just screams it.

She could be preparing to psych Paulo out though, which would be fun. :D

I’m guessing Rachel’s hoping for another night of passion with a certain orange Cat.

Though I won’t be surprised if Paulo says no this time, since he seems to want to be more “loyal” to Lucy.

Personally, I think he should move on from that emotional train wreck and attempt a possible more positive relationship with Rachel. Unlike Lucy, Rachel seems to actually know what she wants.

Apparently, this dog guy has been around even before Starting Over, and we didn’t realize it, so he technically IS a recurring character.

As for, “Tom,” Taeshi didn’t say yes, but she didn’t say no either. He’s just nameless for now, so there’s a slight glimmer of hope. ;)

Anialator October 16, 2013, 10:10 AM EST.

Comment ID #262223

@Anialator: Actually, I would be surprised at that. Parents are supposed to be parents, not their kid’s best friends. I am guessing Rachel’s parents had to go off somewhere for some reason (wedding, funeral, etc.) and Rachel is simply taking advantage of their absence to throw a party for herself.

@HongKat: No, it’s not yet Rachel’s birthday, but rather the week before that. Rachel is just having her party on Saturday night since that’s the weekend closest to her birthday (and her parents are conveniently absent).

Comment ID #262274

it seem logical to let your kid(s) have some free space to themselves when they’re 16 - 18+. I mean, as long as you believe that they’re a good kid and won’t do anything stupid like break a window or do drugs at the house, then your good parents. But if your kid acts like a *** sometimes/a lot and throws parties and/or has done bad stuff once or twice, then it’s good to maybe not trust them because they probably can’t be trusted. Otherwise, your showing that they are old enough to make their decisions and your showing respect. Me personally, I think that 16+ is a good age to trust your kids, but make sure that you KNOW that they will make good decisions (everything I’ve said must be baloney because probably almost everyone that is home alone for a couple of days has done SOMETHING bad…). But in all reality… Kids will show respect if parents let them have a little freedom and give respect back. But not ALL kids are good, yah know? ;)
