Totally Frasian

For those who don’t speak French, “Bien sur! Je suis totalement Frasian!” means “I am totally Frasian!”

I hope these past two days of origin story weren’t too terribly boring. There are a handful more in our near future which I hope don’t slow things down too much. It always feels like these types of scenes go much faster in movies than they do in comics. Ah well.

JULIE: Julia Child was, like the only woman chef on TV. So I thought maybe I could be a TV chef, too.

JULIE: Started spending time in the kitchen with dad learning to cook a lot of traditional Szechuan dishes.

JULIE: Julia was a French chef so after high school, I applied to Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Miraculously, I got in and moved to France for six years.

BODIE: Wow! I had no idea you studied in France!
JULIE: Bien sur! Je suis totalement Frasian!

    Why would they be boring? Background to characters in any story is always interesting and gives them depth, even if said story is a humorous webcomic.

    @Minato: I agree.

    @Minato & mofo

    She was so cute as a little girl.

  • Jamie

    Thanks gang. I’m glad this exposition bit isn’t too terribly boring. It’s tricky to figure out how much is just too much.

  • Kara

    I would so love someone to cook me a Frasian meal. Aw yiss.

    I am loving this storyline. The background is really cool. Every good character needs an origin story…

    Just wanted to let you know: noone actually say bien sur in France in such a sentence. It doesn’t have the meaning that pretty much every english-speaker using those words think it has. Or at least, it’s so not natural (as I guess are my english sentences).
