Well, I've got a new scanner. Hurrah. I apologise for the delay; I had to finish today's comic while invigilating a three-hour exam. With luck, the next comic will be up more or less on time.

Holiday Header: It's snowing. The words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren" are right in the middle of the scene, which unfolds as follows: 1) Marie slaps her hands across her mouth as 2) Casey, who is facing her, begins to look around towards 3) Rahim, who has just hurled a snowball at Casey's head while 4) Barbara is on the verge of beaning Rahim from behind with a much bigger snowball.

Panel 1:
Somewhere in Davies College, Rahim is standing talking to Marie. Baldwin comes up behind Casey.

Casey: Well...I'm leaving for Ireland tomorrow.

Marie: Oh...okay.

Panel 2: Baldwin sidles around to peer up at Casey.

Casey: Have a good Christmas.

Marie [eyes narrowed]: You too.

Casey: I'll see you in a few weeks.


Panel 3: Baldwin is right in between Casey and Marie.

Casey: ...May we help you?

Panel 4:

Baldwin: I was hoping the veneer of politeness would shatter, and there would be screaming.

Marie: We can scream at you if you like.

Alt-Text: The thing about Baldwin is that not only does he not take the hint, he KNOWS he is not taking the hint, and he revels in the fact.
