The deadline for participation in the mayo survey (i.e., Sunday evening at about 9:00 p.m.) is fast approaching. If you still want to participate, e-mail me here; in the body of your message, state your sex and whether or not you like mayonnaise.

I apologise for the lateness of this comic as well. This time, I blame the fact that I chose, of my own free will, to draw (and colour between the bits of) freaking rain.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie walks happily along under a blazing sun while behind her, lightning arcs out of a midnight-black sky. The lightning bolt is labelled "WEST OF BATHURST BY KARI MAAREN."

Panel 2: Marie and Rahim are waiting at a bus stop on a sunny day. Rahim takes out an umbrella.

Marie:'s sunny. Why are you--

Panel 3: It is suddenly pouring rain. Rahim stands stoically under his umbrella as Marie gets soaked.

Marie: Aaaugh!

Panel 4: It's sunny again. Rahim keeps holding the umbrella open.

Marie: Okay, that was weird, but now you can put away the--

Panel 5: Another deluge.

Marie: Aaaugh!

Panel 6: It's sunny. Marie glares at Rahim.

Panel 7: Yet another deluge.

Marie: I swear you're controlling this somehow.

Rahim: You really haven't caught on to the weather here yet, have you?

Alt-Text: The weather in Toronto has been doing this for about three weeks now. In fact, it is doing it as I type. I can hear (sixteen storeys below me) people squealing as they are caught in the torrential downpour.
