Pearl (sleepily getting out of bed and heading to the sofa): When's that new semester startin'? Weren't it supposed ta be today?
Cotterpin (reading a magazine): That was MY impression ....
Pearl: Where's Hoggle?
Cotterpin: He returned to the Labyrinth. Jareth-ma-Bowie-knife-whatshisname has some stuff to take care of, something about girlfriend troubles. *turns to Pearl* Oh, Newsie will be here later. He had to get his stuff from his mom's house.
Pearl: Well, where's Kelly?
Kelly (runs into the room from the crack in the wall, squealing with delight)
Pearl: Well, gee, hon ... where's the fire?
Kelly (trembles with excitement, holding a golden ring that would fit two of her fingers)
(gang's doing some start-of-fall re-arranging of the apartment)
Storyteller: (singing, while dusting the furniture) Try to remember, that time in September...
Beige: (chiming in, while checking the fridge) The milk's gone sour...and oh, so yellow...
Storyteller: Beige, I am trying to sing here!
Beige: And I want something to put in my coffee, is that so wrong?
Scooter: (coming in with new quart of milk) Here you are, Beige. (takes out container of sour milk) Wait a minute - Nora, are you trying to make yogurt with this or something?
Nora: Yeah, I put the cultures in there last night, and I'm supposed to let it sit for a few days.
Scooter: Terrific. (to Storyteller) Hey, Storyteller, where do you want that huge box of notes on Traveling Matt?
Storyteller: Be a dear and put them in my hut, won't you?
Beige: (looking for broom) So she can moon over them all night long.
Erin: (back in room) Nora, where do you want this collection of Jane Austen action figures?
Nora: Put them up on my bookcase - next to the Bronte Sisters Super Squad.
Erin: Gotcha covered. (starts singing) Like a tunnel that you follow, to a tunnel of its own...
Scooter: Still got "Windmills of Your Mind" stuck in your head?
Erin: You bet.
Nora: Just make sure Don Quixote doesn't come riding along when you sing that.
Count: Update please.
Me: All the Sesame B entries have been added. Bit of a glitch in the numbering, but it's solved.
Me: Now on to haunter #115.
Count: Oh, you got it sorted?
Me: Yes... Found my SST Word Book with some of your relatives' portraits there.
Count: So which one are you going with?
Me: The red-headed female. She reminds me of a scene with Professor Umbridge from the book—not the movie—your cousin or aunt's not that mean... Is she?
Count: Not that I know of...
Me: Yeah well... She's got curly red locks, a big pink bow in her hair, white shirt/blouse, and a pink sweater with round open neckline. Need to figure if she's a cousin or aunt of yours though, not to mention her i-scream flavor.
Count: Maybe Erin has some ideas. Anyvay, how are you playing her into the digit sum group?
Me: Well, I was thinking of giving her the five golden rings from that song... But connected as the magic linking rings. Not sure, your family has only four fingers after all.
Count: Hexcept Abba, she has five.
Me: Yes, but Nexica was already depicted as I've described. Oh well, off to some brainstorming.
UD enters the room.
Uncle D: Have you heard the news? The building is buzzing with it.
Me: Yes... I'm glad for Kelly. But... I'm also a little sad.
UD: Mmm... By the by, when's the new term starting?
Me: probably this week. We'll see how I feel in the morning. At least the transportation arrangements have been taken care of.
I heard you're getting married.
And though it's great for you.
It's the worst that could happen... For me.
