*Checks stuff... Decides to go and mingle/boogie/enjoy what's going on around in here.
*Goes off to search for 's missing hat using a broken compass. Maybe I should ask that mermaid girl for directions... *Toot toot!
*Shakes head at the way the entire town map has been rerouted by Mayor Chapman, trying to do my best at understanding how to navigate through this place with the same feeling of homeness.
Robin: Yippee!! No school for 2 1/2 months! I'm free! I get to go to the swamp in a couple of weeks an' visit my frog family.
So does this mean you're not going to miss us while you're not at the swamp?
Robin hugging me: Oh Mom ,of COURSE I'll miss you! I always do. Don't you miss me when YOU'RE away?
Always,Robin. snuggling my young frog son close to my heart and kissing the top of his head . But I want to tell you something.
That room of yours hasn't exactly been picture perfect in the past few weeks, Mr. Robin the Frog.
Yeah.."uh oh" I've let it slide since you've been so busy with school. I want it cleaned by Monday. Also, I don't want to hear "I'm bored!" this summer because first of all you've got a whole shelf of books. Second of all, there's a pool in the apartment complex. One of us will take you! And I think Ed said something about Ed planning some kind of beach excursion sometime this summer. I'm pretty sure it's before you go to the swamp. All right?
Robin: Okay Mom. You're not angry about the messy room are you?
Well...I'm not happy. But I'm not raising the roof screaming mad either.Just get it done,please?
Robin: Going right now.
Thank you sweetie.
Hmmm......reading the paper and frowning
Chef: Yu okee,Kethy?
Well ,I'm reading about an accident where a little girl was killed on a ferris wheel.
Chef:Oh my gudniss! Poor littul gurl!
Yeah...this is making me think ahead to the Halloween carnival and the ferris wheel we had last year. I mean it operated fine.Er...until about towards the end of the last day when it got stuck with just me on it.But can you imagine a little kid younger than Robin being stuck on it.I may have to do some serious thinking before I make arrangements in the fall.
Chef:Ja...gud idea. Mebbe a doonking boof?
snickeringNot a bad idea! We'll see.
Hmmm... *Checking the monster roster. Okay, so we have Blind Pew, because he's part of the Top 100 Muppets list that Prawn and Toga put together and also as part of the Poker Geists... I'm just unsure whether we should also add Captain Skull (skeletal pirate) or the Davy Jones Muppet as part of the Scooby-Doo movie monsters team.
UD: Didn't Pirates Ahoy feature skeletal pirates?
UD: And isn't that pirate coin pin you have depict Jack in his pirate outfit?
UD: Well, that should answer your question.
Me: Except that the portrait in the DLR Haunted Mansion shows off a ghost ship that most believe to be the Flying Dutchman, and Davy Jones is the captain of that vessel.
UD: Ah... Well, does the fact you add one or the other mean you "have" to exclude the one not chosen?
Me: Not necessarily, at least not when there's still plenty of space, even if we add all the haunters we've yet to consider from the Countdown list. But if we choose Davy Jones, then that leaves us with the last DLR portrait, the one with the black-armored knight and his horse who both turn skeletal. And that brings up another set of questions.
UD: Such as?
Me: Well... Should we bring in Eligos, the skeletal knight/rider? Or should we bring in the Black Knight even though we already have Sir Count-a-Lot (the talking suit of armor from the Count's castle from Elmo Says Boo!)? And if we bring in the Black Knight, should that then substitute for the Black Samurai? I'm just a bit wary of not having haunter ideas conflict with each other so I can visualize them in my mind's eye, which helps decide whether or not we bring them into the roster.
UD: Mmm... Yes, I see the problem now. Maybe one of your forum friends might help us with this... Or perhaps Sir Count-a-Lot could be the Black Knight, then you'd be able to add Davy and kill off both the mansion portraits and the SD movie monsters at the same time.
Me: That coooould work... Corpse, we'd still have the question regarding Eligos, but that can wait since we're leaving the Goetic demons aside for now to be considered later. Lemme check something and get back to you. BTW: Thanks Uncle D.
UD: Anytime my boy. *Chuckles to self.
Robin: Is your niece coming down here this summer?
Robin: The older one.
I wish, Robin..but no.
Robin: Oh..nothin' starts to walk away
Robin:No...you'll just laugh an' tell the others.
Robin...have I ever laughed at you before?
Then what makes you think I'll laugh at you now? Come on...talk to me. Pop a squat.
Means take a seat.
Robin:Oh. sits down on the couch next to me
Now you're disappointed that my 11 year old niece isn't coming down here. And I've seen you looking at pictures of her that are in my room. Do you have a bit of a crush on her,Robin?
Robin:Welll.... starts squirming and blushing. Mom...please don't tell her!Please Mom!
hugging him Robin...Robin...relax! My word is as good as gold!My lips are sealed!making a motion like I'm zipping my mouth closed, locking it & throwing away the key She is pretty isn't she?
Robin dreamily Uh huh. Just like her aunt.
playfully shoving him You little flatterer! Thank you! But I think she might have gotten her looks from her mom's side of the family. Come on Casanova..let's go have lunch.
A guy who used to flirt with all the ladies.
on the phone Are you kidding me? ....But she had them when she was little!.....Yeah,I guess so...OK...bye Mom...hanging up the phone
My sister has the chicken pox!
Rosita: Hasn't she had them before?
Yeah...when she was about 4,I think. It was right before my older brother got married for the first time. Both she & my younger brother were getting over it.
Chef:Yu sure it's nut clukitis?
Cluck...No Chef...it's not cluckitis. My sister hasn't sneezed & turned into a chicken.
Chef:How du yu know?
Well, I just know. I won't be able to see her until I come back from New York now. Darn.
Because my nieces haven't had chicken pox. Well, the little one has.But I'm not sure if the big one has, and SHE'S the one that's graduating from elementary school. The last thing she needs is to have chicken pox on graduation day.
Robin: She'd STILL look pretty with pox marks. dreamy look
But she'd be itchy and grouchy afterwards.You wouldn't want to see that.
I goofed up when my sister last had the chicken pox. She was 12 .
Prairie looking at me like I'm nuts You're"arrghing" because you goofed up?Kathy...you're like a sister to me & I love ya but you can be really weird sometimes!
Prairie..I said this afternoon that she was 4. My older brother didn't get married until 1993.She was 12 in 1993.She was 4 in 1985.
*Hearing stuff going on outside...
What's that girl? Ailie's fallen down the well again?
Sure hope the alligators don't get her.
Me: (walks to the front desk) Well, guys, we're here! (looks around) Um, guys? (sighs) I should've never let Doc Hogg take Ojo and Tutter in his old car. It probably broke down on the way here. (taps fingers impatiently on the desk) How fast was he going anyway? 20 mph?! It shouldn't take him that long to get-
Doc Hogg: (enters with a suitcase) Here! I'm here, T, and ready to relax! I hope there's some golf here. I wouldn't mind playing a few rounds. Heh, heh, heh.
Me: Well, let's get settled in first, then we'll worry about that. Um, where are-
Doc Hogg: The others? Oh, they're still in the car. (wide-eyed) Oh, no... I forgot to unlock the back door! I'll be right back! (rushes outside)
Me: (face-palms) This is going to be a loooong day.....
Hey T. Good to have you back.
*Gives her key to Apt. 8. Just ride the elevator up two floors and it's the apartment directly in front of the common room. Hope you and your roomies have fun here at HV.
Me: Thank you very much!
(Ojo and Tutter enter, looking very exhausted)
Ojo: T....where's our beds?? We're so tired!
Tutter: As much as we love Dr. Hogg, riding with him is TORTURE!
Me: (chuckles) Don't worry, guys. We don't have to take any stairs. We just have to ride an elevator to our room. Then, we can go to sleep. Now, let's-
Doc Hogg: (comes back with a golf bag) Go play some golf!
Me: Um, no, Doc. Unpack, then golf! Then, we can go say hi to everyone!
Ojo: Yay! I missed the randomness here!
Tutter: I didn't...
Ojo: Here we go again...
(we get in the elevator and ride it upstairs. We walk a short distance to Apartment 8. )
Me: I'm so excited! (opens the door and we rush inside) Wow! This is better than room 7!
Doc Hogg: I have my own little office! Oh, how did they know?
Tutter: (plops on the bed) This is the life!
Me: Tutter! That's my- (sighs) Oh, never mind...
Me: (finished packing) There. I think that's the last of it. Now, what do you say we go and say hi to the other people here?
Tutter: (asleep on my bed) Zzzzzzzzzzzz....... More cheese for King Tutter..... Zzzzzz......
Ojo: (sitting on her bed, watching "The Muppets" trailer on her laptop for the umpeenth time) I think I'll stay here for a while.
Doc Hogg: I have to finish setting up my doctor's equipment. You go ahead and have fun.
Me: (shrugs) I think I'll go when you guys are up to it. (sits next to Ojo, and watches the trailer with her) We built this city.... We built this city on-
Doc Hogg: (playing air guitar) ROCK AND ROLL!!
Liza: *wanders into the common room, humming*
Other Room 12 peeps: O___O LIZA?!?
Liza: *smiles* Hey, guys.
Camilla: Bwa-byauk gwauk bauk, gauk?!? (Where have you been, child?!?)
Liza: Busy, I guess. Oh well, I'm here now, right?
(OOC: Hey ya'll, I'm back. )
Me: (lying in bed, staring at the ceiling) I'm bored...
Tutter: (eating a piece of cheese) Mmmm... How could you be bored??
Me: I dunno. (tossing a baseball up in the air and catching it) I guess I forgot what goes on here.
Ojo: Wanna go swimming, T?
Me: Maybe later, Ojo. I'm gonna get some breakfast. Do you guys want anything?
Tutter: I'm good! I have all the breakfast I need right now! Cheddar cheese! <3
Me: Ojo? Doc?
Doc Hogg: I would love some cooked and buttered string beans... (sighs contently)
Me: Um, Doc? It's breakfast time!
Doc Hogg: I know! I can dream, can't I? Heh, heh, heh. Just get me some toast with butter and orange juice.
Ojo: Blueberry pancakes!!!
Me: (chuckles) OK I'll be right back.... (gets on bicycle and takes a long ride to Everybody Eats)
Chef Der noggin still hurtin',Kethy?
nodding Makes me glad that Marvin Suggs doesn't live here with his Muppaphones. If he ever got mad at me,he'd conk me over the head like he does to the Muppaphones.But he'd hear more than an "OW!" from me. He'd hear a few choice words too.
Robin: Like what?
giving the ever so clever young frog a look
Robin: Like words that an almost 9 year old frog isn't supposed to say or hear?
I point to my temple Good thinking. I'm off to bed guys.kissing Robin goodnight Can I trust you to be in bed before 11?
Robin:Going now. G'nite Mom kissing me.Nite Chef.
'Nite Chef .
Chef: Nite Kethy. Yu going booling tomorroo?
Come heck or high water I am!
*Goes down to Jim's Coffee House for some breakfast pastries and a cup of icy cold milk.
Still need some Sesame sketch or song or any reference to 10 to complete a subgroup of haunters. Would Ten-Pinface (Grim Adventures) be suitable? Maybe someone will have suggestions. *Shrugs.
coming out of the bathroom That was nasty! Robin & Chef...I ask one simple favor please?
Next time you have to go, stay closer to the toilet please? Need I say more?
Fine.Otherwise we girls are going on strike against bathroom detail!
Chef:Nu! Nu!Doon't du thet! Nekst week iz my tern enywey. Der bethrum will be cleen ez a wisel I prumise.
Prairie:I hope so. And no more leaving the seat up in the middle of the night. Or EVER!
Rosita: Yeah.I got up the other night to go and got a butt full of cold water!
Robin stifles a laugh
I raise my eyebrows at him
Robin:I'm sorry Rosita. I guess I was extra tired that night an' forgot to put the seat down.
Rosita:Well...okay..I accept your apology Robin.
OK...now that we have that out of the way, what say we go bowling later on?
All yell an affirmative shout
Robin:Almost ready to go bowling ,Mom?
Yeah..just about. Robin..c'mere for a second.
I give him a big hug I love you so much!Don't ever forget that,OK? Your Uncle Kermit loves you,your frog mom and dad love you, your relatives in the swamp love you..Chef Prairie & Rosita love you & we'd never do anything to hurt you OK?
Robin hugging me back : I love you all too!But...hey...you're cryin'!Mom, what's the matter?You okay?
angrily brushing the tears away Oh..you're kind of young to understand.
Robin:No...please tell me? Is it about that thing that's been on TV all this week? That lady that did something to her little girl?
Yes Robin. relieved that he's smarter than I thought he was Sweetie..taking his hands..er ..flippers...in my hands... I may get angry with you sometimes but I will never ever ever be as mean as that lady. I wouldn't even go so far as to call her a lady after what she did to her little girl.. And your frog parents wouldn't be that mean either. I can vouch for them.
Robin:What does "vouch" mean?
It means speak for. I may send you to your room when you misbehave.But that's the most I'll ever do. I know in the past year or so you've tried testing me to see how far I'd go. But I'd NEVER spank or slap you. That's considered child abuse.I could get in trouble for hitting you!
Robin: You could? I don't want that!
Me either! So please always remember how much you're loved okay? And how lucky of a kid you are
Robin hugging me:OK Mom..thank you!And I love you too. All around the moon and back again a zillion times!
Same here,kiddo. hugging him again and planting a kiss on top of his head
Now let's go get the others and go bowling!
