This Week in Milford

Agreed. I’m Less Than Impressed

There’s no doubt Aaron’s gonna hit the laptop. He can’t type with those freaky fingers.

Panel 2 is Aaron Aagard when he’s not ready to rumble. He totally got schooled by that other guy. Presumably.

Check out Marjie, pencil at the ready. Maybe Gil is thinking about going nom nom nom on that pencil.




  1. And a happy holiday, to you, too, Marjie. You are the Milford Star.

  2. Aaron Aagard appears to be the perfect teammate: just look at his face. He’s so concerned about his teammate’s horribly dislocated or backwards arm that he has forgotten to guard him.

    On the other hand, I don’t think he’s long for this world. “Food? Who needs it? Calories and nutrients are second to staying up all night researching possible future raves!” If just thinking about a rave makes him this weak and loopy, I expect him to have starved to death by MLK day.

  3. I suppose a plot about a male with anorexia is too much to hope for.

    Meanwhile, Marjie is way, way too excited to be doing yet another preseason interview with Gil. Was she at that rave too? Is she all hopped up on the dope?

  4. Marjie gets a free pass from me. With all this rave business, I wonder if Aa is speeding… That would explain the mania, the not eating, and the daytime crashes. We all seem to be noting the right symptoms but I think need more clues.

  5. Agreed Vaganova about the speeding — indeed that was my first thought about this plot line. Here’s my post from the December 16th TWIM:

    Hmm. Aaaaron is wide-eyed and high-energy, goofy and gregarious after an all-night rave. Are we getting set up for a plot line around Ecstasy or Molly, or perhaps even crystal meth?

  6. Good shooting, Moon– I had forgotten your original post.

  7. An active, 6’7″ teenage boy who passes up food?

    Suspension of disbelief goes only so far

  8. P1: “Mom still has that meat loaf in here? Geez, no wonder why her neck is the way it is. Heck, I’ll just call Domino’s. Oh, wait, I forgot, I’m anorexic. I gotta stay within the script. Heather won’t be there at the court to give me tips on dunking or nutrition. She’s good for one season then the plotline leaves her idle in the name of crop rotation.”

    “Dude, watch that baby step when you’re doing a reverse dunk. Heck, Moose caught on after a coupla tries even though I’ll admit he couldn’t even dunk on a Nerfhoop.”
