In all fairness, June managed to keep her mouth shut a listen to him for what, three whole pages? That has to be new record or something.

Come on June, calm down. While she was out, everybody else (except Randall, of course) has been working like crazy.
oh my god it's lucky charms, they're magically delicious!

@GroovyKinda: Cordelia isn't Irish, but Randall is. And yeah, I had some fun with the charm bracelets. I could have had them be indistinct round beads, but this is much more fun.

@JDPftw: Can Cap'n Crunch save people from the apocalypse? I think not!

@schlissel: It's a Lucky Charms Bracelet. It's deliciously magical.

Now I want cereal. Boo Berry! Damn diabetes! Maybe next page you could work in some asparagus : ) All jokes aside, I'm glad I have time to read web comics again. I like your juggling of characters, drama and humor. I need to start over from the beginning. When I last left off the parents were turning the hose on demons in the front lawn.
I've been working on the chronology of the chicken hat. Cordelia had it on when the sky split open, and the attack began. She lost it during the battle, but found it again in time to lose the game (and the apparent bet) to Sonny, which forced her to make the charm bracelets. She removed the hat to make the bracelets (possibly so that it wouldn't interfere with the charm spell), and, bracelets complete, donned the hat so they could have a good sulk together. Is that about right, or did I miss something?
I've got the feeling that I'm the only one here who didn't get the charms thing. :)

@JWCraig: I worry about this comic getting Cerebrus Syndrome with this heavier story arc, so I work in little visual gags in an attempt to balance it out.

@Delta-v: To be honest, I knew it was inconsistent. I kept the hat off because I thought she looked cool with her hair blowing around. That's all. If it's excessively distracting, I guess I could give her back her hat in the previous page, but I think she looks better without it here.

@Hjels: Do they not sell Lucky Charms in Norway? It's a breakfast cereal with marshmallows shaped like the beads on this page.
@melaredblu: "Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds."--Ralph Waldo Emerson. It didn't bother me at all, and judging by the fact that nobody else remarked on it, I don't think it bothered them either. I was just having a bit of fun with the hat (and proving to you that I really am paying close attention, now), and I think my timeline works as well as any.

@melaredblu: Cerebus Syndrome isn't always a bad thing. I think occasional shifts in mood (especially in an ongoing, story driven comic) help readers form a deeper connection with the characters and enrich the story. I think you're doing a great job.

Wait-I just looked closer at Randall. I thought, with that pillow, that his arms were behind his head, but then it looked like he was reading a book. But the book thing has a really wide spine.

@Delta-v and JWCraig: I appreciate the reassurance from both of you. Thank you.

@GroovyKinda: Yep, he's working on a tan. Though with this distinct lack of solar anything, he's fighting a losing battle.
@melaredblu: Well, I TOLD you that I'm often irritating when I'm trying to be funny. Oh, and I really butchered the Emerson quote. It should have read "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds." My apologies to Mr. Emerson and all the rest of you.

Speaking of Randall, apparently he's made the cover of a children's book:

@GroovyKinda: Huh, well would you look at that? They do look a lot alike.

Cordelia makes me want breakfast with her charms.
