What's Distracting Patricia?
Dave Lartigue, the Legomancer himself, asks the timeless question: "What's distracting Patricia?" Those interested are encouraged to visually speculate as to what exactly is driving Patricia to distraction in this panel. My Patricia is bothered by visions of a horrible job site accident involving delicate fingers and merciless, grinding gears. No wonder the poor dear can't focus!

I figure that looking at the black and white tobacco mix made her finally realize the lack of color that is missing from her own existence.
I know what's really distracting her, but I'll bite:
Patricia is worried that her nicotine habit will eventually sap away her youthful good looks and her beautiful singing voice, leaving her an ugly old hag living in a forest and eating children who wander into her cottage. Patricia is also worried about her overactive imagination and cannibalistic tendencies.
Perhaps it's the freakish hand that juts from between her otherwise perfect breasts.
The medical experiment to restore motor function to her original hand that was ground up in the gears at the tobacco farm.
I think she's anxious about her upcoming interview to be a model for Roy Lichtenstein. Because he doesn't really work with blacks or whites, she knows she's doomed to fail, and the cigarettes are reminding her of the hopelessness of the situation.
The gears and the hand are a metaphor for how the societal machine grinds up people to reduce differences and produce homogeniety. So really, Patricia is fearing the loss of her identity and dreading the oncoming sense of depression and ennui.
I knew that BA in English would come in handy one day. Thanks, Dave!
She's distracted because she just read "Lost Girls" and now realzies she's a lesbian.
"She's distracted because she just read "Lost Girls" and now realzies she's a lesbian."
And now between that and the perfect breasts comment above, *I* am distracted.
As haole said, she's distracted by how empty and colorless her life is, and as a result she's craving some color. Of the sexual chocolate variety. Mm-hmm, baby.
She's just bored with these constant crummy tobacco ads on her new video iPod, when all she wants to watch is non-stop superhero craziness
I just checked out the link and discovered what it is that she's distracted by, but, here's me playing my hand; here's what she's thinking:
"Oh, dear. I'm having an epiphany. I just saw a 'WayneCorp' Business Card next to a discarded piece of cloth from Batman's cloak. This must mean, unfortunately. That the two men I'm in love with-Batman and Bruce Wayne are somehow connected. Bruce Wayne is, is, is... Robin."
Okay, okay, so it's the them of all of the Batman movies, but in the movies the girl always discovered that Bruce Wayne and Bats were the same person.
