Hi all! The website switched to a new server yesterday, so you may have had trouble reading or commenting. It should all be sorted now, but if problems persist you can let me know on melcormics@gmail.com or DM me on twitter and I'll see what I can do!

I get that it's supposed to be "Jonathan" in Drunkenese, but to me it reads like "Jamba fan".
Dunno how well known they're in Britain, but over here, back in the 2000s, the Jamba company plastered all the TV add spaces with their offers for their super annoying ring tones.
In Jon's place I would thus be rather pissed to be called a Jamba fan! :-D

(Also, yeah... If Seth gets late to work tomorrow, and/or performs crappy, he can't exactly lie about the reason...)

I just watched that vid you posted. Man, the 90s/00s were a weird time.

It's meant to be "Jonathan" in babytalk, but yeah, there's some ambiguity there!

I love that Tilly is angry at Seth for being drunk...in his own place. I do get it for getting woken by a drunk, even if it's your lover's brother, but geez. She is getting towards the worst person in this strip (and not in a bad way). I know you're working towards a blowup, and it looks like it'll be fun!

Please, a "blow-up" isn't very British. Instead, the proper thing to do is pretending there is no problem to their face. You tolerate the problems, ignore them, perhaps let out an occasional, sharply aimed, and devastatingly bitter criticism, and poisonously gossip behind their back. That way things can continue getting worse without an incident until eventually -- possibly decades later -- someone dies.

This is a partial explanation of why there are so many British expatriates across the world.

I guess she is kinda angry, in the first panel I was more going for "you deal with this" but yeah, she's not exactly super reasonable!

Getting your sleep drunkterrupted usually isn't pleasant. Instead it tends to be startling, annoying or both. However, one could fairly cuss out Tilly's company's responsibility in this situation for paying Seth so poorly he needs the second job that gets him so drunk. It's doubtful that Tilly and her bosses would willingly see it that way though.

I like that title. It does strike close to home though, because my vocabulary tends to get sharper when I'm fueled up. If I wanted to dodge personal responsibility I might note how that kind of sharpness is what the English language is built for, more than most other purposes. But that would be cowardly, shameless, and crassly evasive, wouldn't it?

Basically it's all capitalism's fault

Eh, I guess that is getting a little too political for someone that doesn't want fifty shades of internet political trolls to ruin your comments section, sorry.
