Awesome and hilarious. :D
And also: CAT!
I really like this! Awesome 12 hour comic :3
Aaaaah, these are all so wonderful, Lucy! So great. <3
Verrry goot! (pronounce with a german "r")
Love your work. Hope you never stop.
This hits pretty close to home. Curse the machinations of those meddling parents!
Lucy, you are FABULOUS. I wish we could compare some of our more hysterical OKCupid fail messages! This is my current dream guy but he won't even answer:
Winner message of the month: "You know, I am very shy and
I am looking for someone experienced honest who is available to
teach me the secrets of sex and why not have a fun in the meanwhile. "
*deep sigh face*
And yay for the cats!
And now he's going to wonder why some 40 year old bi poly dude from NYC is checking him out.
He is pretty cute though.
I think it's fair to say that I'm theater_fan, if you're trying to see why he and I are failing to connect.
I was just opening his profile thinking that now this guy is going to wonder why a bunch of random people looked at his profile today.
I'm entertained at the idea of a bunch of lucy fans going to this Wingsuit's profile. I read through it. He was an awful match for me... somehow I think you could find someone more awesome, web cowgirl... although, he's quite cute... tee hee!
I can relate on so many levels. Did you ever get the "OMg, I know you're going to meet the right one when you do xyz/go to xyz!" I'm doing a study abroad right now, and everyone back home is convinced I'll come back home married.
I enjoy being single!!
This is so lovely.
(I think you have your shit much more together than the characters on "Girls".)
Bodega cats! The bodega cats across the street from me and continuing around the corner are, in order:
* Josephine, tiny importunate gray and white cat who gets very demanding about being petted and will actually grab your hand with her front paws to make you pet her.
* Fifi, beautiful gray cat who likes when customers come in to play with her and her dangly bouncy puffball on a string.
* Xena, imperious but friendly mostly white thumb cat. Her owner says, "Is Russian Xena. Is not like Princess Warrior."
* Black and gray dollar store cat whose name I do not know.
* Xena the Warrior, little black cat whose owner was apparently completely unaware of Russian Xena two doors down.
If anyone reading this is able to identify my neighborhood, you are welcome to be my stalker/friend/fellow bodega cat admirer.
Now I want to meet them all! You have to watch out for those thumb cats, though. Once they figure out how to open cans, it's all over for us.
All stores should have cats.
Wonderful, as always.
Also, never listen to your dad: CATS ARE ALWAYS THE ANSWER
It is a universal phenomenon that all mothers seem to think that the key to dating is how your hair looks. (Actually, my Mom is always concerned about my hair. It's a little weird).
My parents are the opposite in that they urge me to have no interest in men and were super supportive when I cut off all my hair. Ahhh, Catholic culture. I assume they'll swing around to pushy when I get older if I'm not married though. But I am pretty much with you on all of this.
that's adorable! :D
i think if i weren't married, I'd be in the same predicament as you... my parents insisting i date. why don't I date on-line?
then once you get married it's WHY NOT BABIES NOW? X3
Your 12-hour comics are better than most people's take-all-the-time-you-want comics!
It's a shame that Person of Interest just got a dog. Because they really do need to do a program involving Bodega cats.
These are wonderful! If you had a memoir, I'd read it.
Lucy, do you think if you got out of New York, you would be happier?
loved this. All of it. and I think your face in the Sherlock in a Sheet panel is one of my absolute favourite things you have drawn.. and considering how much I love your art style and your work that actually says quite a bit :)
you really do have this creepy knack for creating comics that parallel with my life. From Sherlock to OK Cupid.
My favourite Manhattan cat that I've ever seen was when I was there April 2011. A seafood vendor in the West Village was shutting down, and they were spraying out all of the ice and leftover bits. There was this gigantic marmalade cat sitting on the counter. Overseeing.
It's more important to know the bodega cats, I think. Neighbours aren't half so good as getting rid of football sized rats.
i like your drawings so so much. specially the cat(s).
Yay! This is fabulous! :D
what! well I'M in love with you lucy knisley! you're one of the few reasons i still visit my livejournal.
I just broke down and watched girls and then watched EVERY EPISODE like an endless bag of Oreos...its definitely hits some things on the nose about being 20 but at the same time about 50% of it you don't remember the next day after watching...
But in the same regards of you ignoring Girls, I am almost going to break down and finally watch twilight...the latest trailer looked SO BAD it looked good! Like one of the vampires should be Liam Neeson!!
ONE OF THE VAMPIRES IS THE PIEMAKER.

love the references to okc. tee hee! i feel suddenly lucky that my parents haven't given me much dating advice.....
When I was still on college I had a boyfriend and my parents did not stop telling me they would kill me if I got pregnant.
Now that I'm out of school and been single for like 2 years, they try to hook me up with every guy.
Parents! who understand them!
Loved to read all of these ^_^
HA! Boyfriend mall, if only ;-) Hilarious comic, as always!
DON'T watch girls. Not a single freaking Person-of-color in the cast. Not even the extras. If the representation of other races matters to you at all, stay away from that show. It's like making a show about nerds and not having a single girl in the main cast.
