I'm not sure when this happened, but on the comics page, apparently Cathy is engaged to that guy she's been dating since the strip started several hundred years ago.
I'm a huge fan of the funnies, but Cathy is one of those strips that I really don't pay much attention to, simply because the formula's remained the same since its inception.
Panel 1: Establishing shot of Cathy...
a. engaging in conversation with boyfriend/mother/co-workers/waiter.
b. shopping for a swimsuit.
Panel 2: A growing sense of panic and/or concern.
Panel 3: A cloud of chaos with arms flailing, sweat drops flying and paper tearing.
Panel 4: Cathy standing/sitting in the middle of a shredded pile of something expressing an obvious conclusion.
Man, I miss Calvin and Hobbes...
