    *Happy sigh. Finally finished with the latest chapter from KG. Now, on to other matters.
    *Hunts through the fridge to make some simple leftover breakfast, waiting today's mail drop for the first few packages out of the mountain of clothes my mom and sis have ordered lately, then on to work with another couple of haunters' write-ups. :busy:

    All this, and getting adjusted back to Daylight Time as regards my TV viewing habits and associated time-tracker sense.

    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 green cookies
    Cookie: Oh boy! Me like that idea.

    Downstairs in Apt 1...

    *:batty:, dancing with his bats.
    Ah, 1 2 3, spread out the cape.
    1 2 3 twirl round the floor.

    The numerian vampirian's enjoying himself because today is 3-1-3-1-3, a perfect palindrome of a date. And tomorrow, March 14 is known as Pie Day, which is one of his favorite numbers because he gets to count forever, or at least until he drops, whichever comes first.

    Heh, no, unless :hungry: wants to so we can share with you.

    That was a small quirk I did have when I was a youngin', thank goth I grew out of the habit (much to my mom's relief).
    Hey, when :batty: is one of the fictional characters you look up to, you get obsessed with numbers too at some point.

    *Goes to ask Uncle D if we can make a bourbon pecan pie for Catherine and her roomies, since that's another recipe I got off of Food Network shows.

    *Hears knocking outside. *Peers out through the eyehole. What's the password. Oh fright, there's no password. *Opens up to let :hungry: come in. Thanks for the pies Chef, these are sure to be delicious. *Puts the pies on the table, as Uncle D already left to deliver the bourbon pecan pie upstairs to Apt 5.

    :news: sigh...

    Snookie: You still moping?

    :news: She's been gone a LONG time.

    Snookie: She always comes back, right? And here you are, Mr Faithful.

    :news: *scowl* Something wrong with that?

    Snookie: Well, there ARE other...heh heh...toys in the box, if you catch my drift.

    Carl, the Big Mean Conductor: OOOH! TOYS? Are there any TRAINS?

    *Snookie and Newsie stare at him. The railroad-stripe outfit doesn't fit at all, and his conductor's cap is dangling from one horn*

    BMC: Well? Don't keep me in suspense here!

    Snookie *tiredly* Hey Carl, I think I saw a gopher in the garden earlier...

    BMC: REALLY? Oooh...I love gophers! Especially smoked. Thank you!

    *the boys return to their discussion. Shortly, sounds of things crashing from the hall closet ensue. The cousins ignore it.*

    Snookie: So, cuz. Really. Your girl seems nice and all, but...these extended work trips...a Muppet has NEEDS, right?

    :news: Needs?

    Snookie: Sure. You know. NEEDS.

    BMC *yelling from hallway* Hey, who moved my C-4? *more crashing noises*

    Snookie: And I have it on good authority she's been thinking of...ah...someone else.

    :news: WHAT! *bristling* You take that back!

    Snookie: S'true.

    :news: She NEVER...!

    Snookie: You, my friend, are a sad case.

    :news: *getting nose-to-nose with Snookie* Take. It. Back.

    Snookie: Whoa! Simmer down! I was just teasing.

    :news: *fumes silently, then plops back into his chair* ...NOT funny.

    *one final loud THUD comes from the hallway. Carl, now dressed in Bill Murray's outfit from Caddyshack, emerges with a face-splitting grin, a ridiculous armful of dynamite and plastic explosives nearly up to his chin*

    Carl, the Big Mean Groundskeeper: Hah HAH! And now, for my next trick: Exploding Rodents for Distance! *he waits; the other two just stare at him. Carl bows, nearly dropping his armload, and the Muppet boys duck for cover, but the monster juggles a moment and recovers it all intact* *beat* THANK YOU!

    *Carl trudges out the door, humming "I'm All Right"*

    .......*Snookie and Newsie's noses peek from under the sofa, though there doesn't seem to be enough space under there to hide two grown Muppets*

    :news: She's coming back soon.

    Snookie: Frog, I froggin' HOPE so...

    *Returning from a night out at the club. Mmm, now that rully was delish.
    UD: The blood sausages, the best ever.
    And the ribs, it just ripped right off the bone.
    UD: The kidneys were also good, shame they had no hearts in stock.
    The gizards got a bit charred... Guess they spent a while too long on the grill pit.
    :batty: And thanks for the tres leches afterwards... Does it really have 3, 3 different kinds of milk?
    Well, milk-ish products, yes, that's how it's traditionally made.

    *All tip to Carl as we pass by back inside the townhouse.
    It in da' hole!

    Baby Plucky: Gopher go down the hole.
    *Random cameo.

    *Remembers to send a pie to Kris and the boys in Apt 4 tomorrow, maybe a spiced Santa Fe banana pie or lime-in-the-coconut.

    (Rizzo's belly is so full he can't see his toes, which are propped up on Ru's knee. They are sitting side-by-side in the lime tweed recliner in the middle, looking at "The Pie and Pastry Bible.")
    Rizzo: (crossing himself) I never thought of myself as the religious type, but I swear I'm thinking of converting.
    Ru: Pretty good buy for a buck, don't you think?
    Rizzo: Duh.
    Ru: I love thrift stores and yard sales.
    Gonzo: (coming in from the bedroom dressed to the nines) Did I hear Camilla?
    (Ru and Rizzo exchanged puzzled glances, then Ru's eyes go wide and she laughs.)
    Ru: No--that was me. (holds up the recipe book) I was just saying I got this book for a buck.
    Gonzo: (still fiddling with his cufflink) Oh...good-looking pie on the cover.
    Ru: (looking at Gonzo fondly) Speaking of good-looking...where you going tonight, Hot Stuff? You're all dressed up.
    Gonzo: (acting nonchalant but pleased) Oh--nowhere special. Camilla and I are going to catch a film and then go out to The Grill.
    Ru: Oh--what film are you seeing?
    Gonzo: (still fiddling with his cufflink) What? Oh--I think it's "Food-Handling Safety is for Everyone."
    Rizzo: (dryly) Mr. Romance.
    Gonzo: (modestly) Well, it IS Salmonella awareness month.
    Ru: (handing Rizzo the cookbook and leaning forward) C'mere, Honey--let me do that for you. (He approaches and she manages to loose the cufflink from his furry wrist and put it through the cuffs.) There.
    Gonzo: (sighing in relief) Oh--thank you, Ru. Well, I'm off. (He grabs his coat and a derby-style hat and goes out.)
    Rizzo: Eh, bless him, the little weirdo.
    Ru: You know Camilla--she's a trooper. She'll probably have a good time.
    Rizzo: Speaking of...where are the lovebirds tonight? Pitching woo? Or crockery?
    Ru: Mmm, neither, I think. Piggy's gone to a Midnight Madness Mall event. She's been training for it all week.
    Rizzo: Oh! I thought she was working out because she couldn't get into her bathing suit.
    Ru: (mildly, eyebrows arching) You better hope she's out.
    Rizzo: (looking around desperately) You said she was out--!
    Ru: (smiling) She is. I'm just saying....
    Rizzo: Hmmphf. So, Kermit went along to carry her bags?
    Ru: Nope. He's had this date on the calendar for weeks. He and Fozzie did a guy's night out.
    Rizzo: Bowling and nachos?
    Ru: Probably something like that. I think it's nice that they got to--
    (There are signs of a key in the door, and Ru and Rizzo turn and crane their necks around to see who it is. Fozzie and Kermit come in the door laughing and talking.)
    Fozzie: So then I told them--he can't come to the phone--He's got a person in his throat!
    (They laugh uproariously, then Fozzie looks up and sees Ru sitting with Rizzo. His eyes go wide with surprise, then he looks hastily away.)
    Ru: Hi fellas! Have a good time bowling?
    Kermit: Oh yeah. We had a good time. (flexing his arm) I'm a little rusty but I didn't do too bad. Fozzie here made two strikes and three spares, so we didn't embarrass ourselves, right Fozzie?
    Fozzie: (looking away) Oh. Um, right, Kermit. (He will not look at Ru or Rizzo.)
    Ru: Wow--two strikes! Way to go, Fozzie! Did you see anyone else you know?
    Fozzie: Um, no. I don't think so.
    (Kermit is now looking at Fozzie, surprised at his sudden change in demeanor, but when Rizzo elbows Ru in the ribs he looks up. Rizzo darts his eyes and does a fairly impressive job of conveying his opinion that Fozzie is upset about the fact that there is someone sitting in his chair! Ru opens her mouth to say something to Fozzie, but Rizzo jumps in before she can.)
    Rizzo: (hopping up) Gosh, thanks Ru, for explaining about the difference between, um, kneading the dough and, um, rolling the dough. I sure don't want to waste all that flour.
    Ru: (flummoxed at first, then catching on) Oh. I mean, oh, um, yes--it's an important difference. I'm glad you asked me and, er, brought me the recipe book so I could, um, show you what I was talking about.
    Rizzo: Yeah. That was swell. (turning to Fozzie and Kermit) Well, I'm off to read a little before bed! (He trots out of the room. He has barely cleared the doorway when Fozzie is sitting in the recliner in his usual seat, cozied up to Ru. Over his head, Kermit smiles at Ru.)
    Ru: Oh, good! I was worried you wouldn't get back in time for our reading time.
    Fozzie: I wouldn't forget you, Ru. (looks up wistfully) You wouldn't forget about me, would you? Even if there were, um, other bears and, um, rats or things...?
    Ru: Oh, no Fozzie! You are absitively, posolutely irreplaceable--promise. Now, what chapter were we on?
    Fozzie: Fourteen! It was just getting to the good part!
    (Kermit wanders over and climbs up into the recliner he shares with Piggy or Fozzie, depending on the state of his love life. He settles back, listening to Ru and Fozzie read aloud.) Nice.
    (Ru nods without missing a word.)

    It's good that there seem to be people milling about in the halls. It's been a bit quiet with no real events to draw people's attention or activity, but I guess that's okay since we're all doing our own things.

    *The phantom dragon leaves a note at Apt 3 inviting Spike and at Apt 7 for Pew for a round of beers down at the club tomorrow since that's his one no-lasagna night out of the entire year.

    *Waits for :batty: to return with the weekly groceries so we can get dinner started, and sort through the packages that keep coming for my mom and sis like a slowly encroaching plague.
