I come back after months away and that's all you have to say to me Snowthy? I'm sad now! But I can speak to this at least for me - a friend of mine does it all the time so honestly I just copied it from her. I'm not really sure of it's origin...
*Steps up to microphone* Is this thing on? It is? Oh good.
So hai. Yep, I'm here. I've been away for quite awhile - life offline has gotten VERY real for me in the last nine months or so...I'm having a baby in a couple of weeks. Yep. You heard me right. The newest little Muppet fan is due...
Beth *digging through dresser drawers*
Cookie: What you doing?
Beth: Trying to find my green clothes. It's St. Patrick's Day this weekend so we should wear all green.
Cookie: Me not green. Me blue.
Beth: That's ok Cookie, we can maybe find a green bow for you to wear. And I'll bake you some...
Hey Ed. Lack of time/ambition mostly. I'm proud of what I did back in the day, but I haven't felt that spark in so long. I might give it a go at some point though!
Cookie: No more amnesia for Cookie though
Heh, yeah I won't put you in a bad situation again Cookie Monster.
Beth: Man, sometimes I miss writing
Rowlf: Oh yeah?
Beth: Yeah, I was just reading some of the old stories I wrote about you back in the day
Rowlf: I bet that was a trip
Beth: It was. Those were the days.
Beth: *busily baking cupcakes and other goodies for V-day. Leaves a few red velvet with cream cheese frosting at Apt 1's door for Ed and the scare crew*
There we go. Now to start on the Radish cupcakes for Red and then double chocolate for Rowlf and Oreo cupcakes for Cookie Monster. Going to...
Red: All right, I'm finally going to go swimming again!
Beth: This time go slow to get there though ok? No falling down again.
Red: I will. I am leaving plenty early so I won't be late. I do not want that to happen again!
Beth: Well good, have fun!
Beth: Boy I sure am glad Red's foot is all better. That was a long few days of her being laid up.
Rowlf: You can say that again
Beth: That was a long few days of her being laid up.
Rowlf: Very funny.
Beth: Aww, come on, that would be your kind of joke
Rowlf: You're right, it is. I've trained...
Red: Thanks for the word search books Prairie and Rosita - I'm going crazy sitting here doing nothing. It's so boring! Tell Kathy thank you for me too.
Rowlf: I'm not much of a chef, but I hope this radish soup is ok. I talked to Boober and he said this is how you make it.
Red: Thanks Rowlf...
Red: I'm SO BORED!!!
Beth: It's just another couple of days that you need to stay off your foot, it could have been much worse
Red: Two days is like an eternity!!
Beth: I know it is, but the good news is I don't have to work tomorrow, so I can stay home with you and watch movies and play games...
Beth *sitting and reading a book* I like how quiet it is this morning. I love my roomies, but sometimes you just need some piece and quiet.
*suddenly the door bursts open and Rowlf and Cookie Monster are helping a limping Red into the apartment*
Beth: Uh-oh, what happened?
Red: I slipped on the...
Beth: It's too cold. I do not want to get out from under the blankets.
Red: If we go to the pool we could sit in the sauna
Beth: But first we have to actually leave here where it's warm
Rowlf: I'm not going anywhere today
Beth: At least you have fur!
Rowlf: Yeah, but it ain't doing much for me...
Beth *putting final touches on a coffee cake* There we go. This looks pretty good. Now I just need to keep a certain monster away.
Rowlf: I'd hide that thing on the other side of the building, otherwise you'll have no hope of it lasting until tomorrow for your friends.
Beth: I know. I think...
Beth: Lemonade soda is delicious! No complaints from me!
Red: Too sour for me. I have radish juice though, I'll survive!
Cookie: Me like this pizza, it very tasty.
Beth: Thanks for not devouring it too much there Cookie
Cookie: You welcome. *urp*
Cookie: Did someone say pizza??? Me like pizza
Beth: Yes, it sounds like Ed has some leftover to share - sounds good for lunch, what do you guys think?
Rowlf: I'm down for that
Red: Sure, then I can thank them for the radish bars too.
Beth: All righty, we're all settled in again. This is good. *sets the radish bars Ed left Red aside since she is still in bed*
Cookie: Me happy to be back.
Beth: I'm happy you're back too. Rowlf, did you get settled all right too?
Rowlf: Yes indeed. Slept like a rock last night too.
Beth: *standing around the empty apartment taking it all in* Yes, this will do nicely
Red: *wrinkles her nose* I don't know if I like it.
Beth: Come on Red, have an open mind. It's a fresh start. Besides, remember when we first started living together? It was a dorm room much smaller than...
