It's the next day, and this time we'll be catching up on Maria and Chanel. In case you'd forgotten, Maria offered to help Chanel with studying and to introduce her to her roommates. So naturally, this is where things would go. It is nice to see the two girls together in the same room again, though. It's been a while. ^_^

As we saw last week, Gavin and Ana may have seen some hiccups in their studying due to whatever their relationship is. (Are they still crushes or are they newly dating? They haven't said yet.) Maria and Chanel, however - a long established couple - are doing just fine with their studies. They do have to contend with Maria's roommates, though. Or, admittedly, mostly just Blair. But as she says, she grew up with Rudy; Blair being a similarly over-the-top and eccentric goof is no big thing. She knows how he works. XD

Yay, more Chanel! Of course that means disappointment because it means waiting longer until we get to see Rain and Ryan meet.

What mostly gets me about this one is the way you can see Maria silently mouthing the 3...2...1... as she waits for Blair to barge in.

That is so. incredibly. rude. of him! The nerve of that guy!

You don't order pizza BEFORE asking everyone in the house if they want any!

You had me in the first half. Not gonna lie. XD

Why not? Just make sure to order enough for them... Besides I'm certain Isaac already knows what kind of pizza Maria likes....

There are times when pizza is properly ordered before asking everyone if they're interested.

Like, back in the day, at college, one of the local pizzerias had a rather insane deal. They had a signature pizza which was mostly rectangular, about 24 inches by 18 inches by 1.5 inches. There were some floors in various women's dorms where the majority of a floor would go in on one of these for a meal. Each of these massive pizzas cost less than $40 in 2020 currency, assuming it was one topping. They stated their price in terms of a one topping pizza, and it was rare to see people doing anything else.

Given such a pizza, the typical practice in my dorm was for a small group of people to decide to go that route, enough so that it wouldn't matter to them financially if nobody else was interested. They would then put in the order, and then in the course of the hour it took for the pizza to be cooked and delivered, they'd seek more people to go in on it with them to reduce the cost further.

Anyone who didn't get in on the deal in time to contribute to the pizza would then have a chance at having whatever was left over. We did have a dormmate who chose to be "that guy", and never opt to get in on the deal, but would hover around looking for leftovers. Generally, people looked at "that guy" as the one who was rude. The people who ordered food half an hour to an hour before everybody else would have started to think of it were not considered rude.

I've also had a friends group in which everybody knew all of the other people's dietary restrictions and preferences, and when pizza was ordered, it was normally ordered in sufficient quantities to have left overs for all, even the seemingly bottomless pit known here as Some Ed. In this group, the question generally wasn't, "Is there interest in pizza which is currently on the way" but rather, "Will there be immediate interest in the pizza on the way, or will you be partaking of it later." By the point when this was a standard process for us, it wasn't considered rude for anyone to order pizza without consulting the rest, though it was at least considered a good idea to be sure that the guy with the weird pizza topping choice would be around to eat it within a reasonable time from when it was ordered.

That said, in circumstances where there might not be enough to go around or where there are special dietary constraints that might not be considered, I'd almost certainly agree.

If Blair thought they were having some alone time, it's super pervy and not ok that he burst in like that.

I doubt he genuinely did. As Maria said, I think he was just being annoying/teasing them.

By now he does probably know what their relationship is like and know that he wouldn't actually be barging in on anything super private

Sry to ask but do you know if/when volume 6 is coming out?
Allison (not that one) 25th Nov 2020, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
And can we put in pre-orders for it (vol 6) yet?

(Not that I'm impatient or anything like that. Nope, not me ....)
Jocelyn 25th Nov 2020, 9:51 AM edit delete reply
@Katie and Allison

I don't know when Volume 6 is happening at this time. Things in life have kinda thrown me off lately. That said, it will happen. Probably sometime next year. Hopefully sometime sooner than later. Unfortunately, you can't preorder yet because there's just nothing to preorder either.

Sorry to you both (and anyone else waiting), for my taking so long with this one. But I promise it is coming! ^_^

Even as a joke, please don't do that. ^^;

I have post days, but I very specifically don't have post times anymore for this reason. I used to post at exactly midnight, until I lost track of time and didn't post until 12:02 once and popped in to find several messages asking about the page or if I was okay.

So yeah, now as long as it's up between 12:00AM and 11:59PM, it's not late. That said, it'll probably be up very soon. ^_^

Post it at 11:59 Hawaii time to punish the impatient :P

I like that both Maria and Emily did the "count down from 3" thing at Blair. It says a lot about his character without seeing him do it.

I'm late, so this probably isn't when you got your new pfp (or whatever they call it on this site lol) but i absolutely looove it!
