Merry Christmas, everyone.

(And in case you're about to nitpick, this comic actually takes place several hours before Marie's confrontation with Nico. Chronological order is for wusses.)

Saturday, December 25, 2010
Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie makes shifty eyes as she hides behind her laptop. On the back of the laptop are the words, in festive red and green lettering, "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: In Marie's apartment, Marie is on her futon, staring at her laptop. Rahim, who has just arrived, takes off his jacket.

Rahim: Working on Christmas?

Marie: Yep. Can't talk. Very busy. Sucks, but that's the way it goes.

Panel 3: Rahim sits down beside her.

Panel 4: He tries to peek at her laptop.

Panel 5: She pulls the laptop away from him.

Panel 6: Rahim crosses his arms at Marie, who cringes.

Panel 7: You're illegally downloading the Doctor Who Christmas special, aren't you?

Marie [loudly]: I admit nothing!

Alt-Text: Marie has learned the _Who_ meaning of Christmas. Sorry...I simply couldn't resist.
