When this strip first posted, readers rightfully responded that they didn't think it was in Erin's character to be so excited about money.
I absolutely agree, except in this case, where she's throwing it up into the air, because in her mind it's confetti that pays your rent.
(Actually, something we never got into: Erin is living in the downstairs apartment of her aunt's house. She may not even be paying rent! But I think she's mostly excited that her girlfriend's gonna have extra spending money for the month, instead of just bill-paying money.)
