|Why does turkey always make me so tired? I suppose the fact that there was a 21-month-old (who calls me "Aaa," which is apparently her way of saying "Aunt." She hasn't entirely mastered consonants yet) bouncing all over the house didn't help, though admittedly, I wasn't the one who had to chase her. At any rate...hurrah for Boxing Day. I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had fun yesterday.|

Panel 2: Marie is in her apartment, talking to Casey on her laptop.

Casey [on the computer]: Nico, you need to be over...not the whips! Are you mad? Try--okay, obviously, that's not working.
Casey [on the computer]: Does anyone have the chains I left here yest--no! For the love of--use the laser! Use the laser!
Marie: I don't even ask any more.
On the computer, we hear something go "crunch" and someone scream, "AAAIEEEE!"
