Unfortunately, I think you are on to something. In the frame where she is "messing up her hair" I think it is actually falling out.

Don't like where this is going.

I'm with Shidoshi—I think it's just sand in her hair. Phlip already observed the flat part of the scene is waving up and down whereas the slanty part is static, and concluded that they were at the beach and the flat part is water. This seems to be confirmed by the scenes where the guy walked up to the water and put his toe in. So after she sat up after lying down and stuff started falling out of her hair, it seems plausible that was just sand, and in the next frame she was trying to get the rest of the sand out of her hair.

I'm picturing them constructing a gigantic sand castle over the next several panels. Hope that happens.

My understanding is that Randall rarely watches the forums. Someone has probably pointed out to him by now that his "Time" comic spawned a 50+ page thread on the forums, but I doubt he's read more than a handful of posts.

It is very unlikely he is reacting to it, as he's not exactly drawing these in real time. (Presumably he's still going to sleep each night.) My guess is the entire sequence was pre-programmed, although it's likely that some aspects (like the auto-refresh javascript) were added and updated in real time in response to increased server-load generated by the comic.
