    *Watching Election Night coverage for both the US presidency and the PR governorship... And then a bulletin comes in announcing... Wha?! Oh boy, it's going to be odd the next four years with President Elect Gonzo and VP Elect Rizzo. I'm disappointed the Grover/Cookie Monster ticket got beaten so handily 177 to only 110 votes. Does this mean there'll now be a chicken in every pot pie? Probably :hungry: will be happy with that. And Rhonda, :shifty: will now be even more insufferable in trying to get her out on a date since he's the big cheese. *Shakes head waiting for further results.

    Ellie: *listening to music in large noise cancelling head phones, bobbing along to the music, waves to Bert*

    Bert: Hello Ellie...Ellie? *double takes* You stay after school on Thursdays!

    Ellie: *can't hear him* WHAT?

    Bert: I SAID...*walks over and pulls one of the phones off my ear* Ahem, I said you stay after school on Thursday, what are you doing here?

    Ellie: *pulls ear phones all the way off* True, but no one could make the meeting, plus I didn't go to school today!

    Bert: You aren't sick! And you didn't have the day off!

    Ellie: Nope, but I have an excuse! *shows paper* See? When we scheduled the court date it was because I had today off, now that they changed it, they have to excuse my absence! *spins in a circle* My absence is excused woooo!

    Bert: Of course it is -_- Well, at least you brought your Spanish book to do work in.

    Ellie: Actually...

    Ernie: Head up Ellie! *hits my Spanish book to me like its a hockey puck*

    Ellie: Got it! *gets hockey stick and stops the Spanish book* Where's our goalie?

    Susie: *wearing umpire gear, a football helmet and has a hockey stick* Where's the goal again?

    Ellie: Kitchen! *hits Spanish book-puck*

    Bert: *shakes head in disapproval and leaves the game of Spanish book hockey be*

    Ed finishes putting away the kitchenwares which I thank Uncle D and Count for scrub-washing last night given our dishwasher's not being used—and seems to be on the fritz as well.

    Uncle D is rereading the chaptered segment of Kris's fic, enjoying himself to no end.

    Count wraps a package to be sent to the happiest street in NYC, even in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
    :batty: The gift's ready.
    Me: Thanks buddy, another year and another streetsign nameplate with a "Happy 43rd Birthday" to send the folks back home.
    UD: Ah, such memories. Would there be a chance of visiting the old haunt?
    Me: You know, I'm not sure if there'd be interest in renewing that tradition from when the dorms were around. I kind of feel that the city's evolved into a thriving burgh of its own. But if there's enough interest I'd consider setting up a trip to Sesame next week. Heck, we could probably stay around for the annual parade. *Shrugs. *Goes to get a cup of hot chocolate for us early spooks.

    *Hears some potential scampering from the hallways, both on this floor and the one above. Well, I hope that means some of the folks who live here decided to show themselves.
    *Leaves an invitation for Beth and her roomies if they want to have dinner or whatever meal it ends up being—and to alert her for another fic appearance by Wanda in my oneshots.
    *Continues errands by delivering a Bavarian chocolate pie made by my roomies for Aunt Ru and her main Muppet players.
    It should be noted that :batty: has a connection to the chocolate importers thanks to his patronage of Penny Candyman's Candy Shop. Which is why the devilfood fudge cakes are one of the most popular desserts at the club.

    Fozzie: So I don't have to choose?
    Ru: Huh uh, sugar. Pick what you want.
    Fozzie: So...I do have to choose.
    Ru: What? Oh. Oh! Sort of. But if you want a molasses cookie and a piece of deep-dish pumpkin pie, I'm not going to wrestle with you or your conscience. (She watched Fozzie load up his plate.) Want a glass of milk with that?
    Fozzie: Yes please!
    Kermit: (walking in with an empty coffee mug) Did I hear milk and cookies?
    Fozzie: And pie.
    Piggy: And brownies.
    Fozzie: (wailing) Brownies! I did not know there were brownies.
    Ru: Um, well, pumpkin swirl brownies. They haven't been officially taste-tested yet.
    Piggy: Yes they have.
    Ru: I stand corrected. Actually, I stand in front of the stove--most of the time, it seems.
    Kermit: Or the blackboard.
    Ru: (beaming) Yes--or the blackboard. Want to try one of the experimental brownies?
    Kermit: Not that kind of experimental brownie, I hope.
    Ru: (exasperated) No. Just--I'm still working on recipe. I thought the chocolate was a little too bittersweet. What do you think?
    Fozzie: They're perfect just like they--what? (Kermit is rolling his eye's at Fozzie frantically.) Oh. Oh! I mean, they're, um, pretty, good, but I think you could keep trying.
    Ru: (arms crossed) Oh. You do, do you?
    Fozzie: (hiding behind hat) Kermit made me say that.
    Ru: (laughing) No foul. I'll keep trying.
    Piggy: Good to hear.
    Kermit: Good brownies.
    Fozzie: Good pie, too.
    Kermit: Getting there....

    UD: Have you tried mixing a bit of coffee powder into the chocolate for your brownies?
    :batty: Mmm, the pumpkin svirl adds a nice touch to their taste though.
    *Serves self a glass of milk, snatching a pumpkin cookie, hope Aunt Ru doesn't mind.

    Rhonda: There's a time for politeness. This ain't it. WHEN you gonna finish this danged story already?

    :news: Ahem.

    :news: Bodies? Erk!

    Rhonda: She means characters.

    :news: Now she's killing CHARACTERS?

    Rhonda: Aw geez. Look, Goldie, take a breath, your nose is gonna freeze up. So what if she does? That's not the real you. You're right here, safe and sound...and hyperventilating. Stop it.

    :news: You're not going to...to...kill me off, are you?

    Newsie...no. Never.

    Yech, it smells worse than the Bog of Eternal Stench out there.
    :batty: Yes, it's part of the local public works, they're trying to fix some of the street pipes. Just hope HV's city planners didn't muck things up much more.

    The fact that it's raining on and off isn't helping either. Meh, just stay indoors and avoid stepping in the curbside gutters.

    UD: What about your outing later today?
    That got cancelled.
    UD: What? ! ?
    Yeah, family meddling, forget it.
    *Goes off to the laundry room, retrieving clothes and folding them to distribute amongst the roomies of Apt 1.

    Prairie: Have you gone nuts?

    No I PROMISE I haven't gone nuts! I'll explain once we get to the kitchen. Just get in line behind Robin.
    The girls get in line behind Robin. I see Rosita making a "crazy" sign behind my back

    I saw that, Rosita! Now where's Grover?
    Grover:Right here watching TV silly! Why are you all congaing?

    Join the conga line and you'll find out once we get to the kitchen.

    Kelly (wakes up, pouting): I want my computer! *sniffle* Staples better hurry their butts up! I'm in withdrawl!

    Cotterpin: -_- You can borrow your mom's. How are you, otherwise?

    Kelly (sits up): I think the aspirin helped. I can't tell you how much I appreciate my CNA driving me home. It was so nice of her. I was already irritated that the asthma attack meant I was behind on my patient rounding, but then the whole chest pain thing happened ....

    Cotterpin (shudders): Yeah, glad the aspirin helped. What does that do?

    Kelly: It thins out the blood. It's useful to help stave off possible cardiac arrest. I don't think it was getting that bad though, but I'm willing to bet I had angina, which is like a warning siren that cardiac arrest is on its way.

    Cotterpin: Your job sucks.

    Kelly: No, I love my job. I want to work at that hospital until they day I die! ... I just don't want it to be, like, right now ....

    *Is sickened by the new news regarding :laugh:
    *Uncle D scowls in frustration at the utter rubbish.

    Hmm, since I'm going to need Wiki and online sources to research the rest of the haunters plotted for the first square, I think I'll turn my attention to the November oneshot.
    :batty: Do you have the idea already?
    Yes... Thanksgiving at the family home of :sympathy:.
    UD: Mmm, Beth will like that one.
    Yep, I already know Alexander Moe and Puffy will be there, and Wanda will mentally sing "In My Life". Planning to have a few new parade floats on the TV... The only hitch is what the Muppet guest list should be. Oh well, it'll turn out good.

    Hey Robin...Uncle Kermit's balloon is on! Hurry!
    Robin scurries to the TV Yaaayy!!Too bad they never made a balloon of me.
    I'm sure it would've been great, Robin. kissing the top of his froggie head. Geez...you're getting tall! Pretty soon up at you to talk to you!
    Robin: But I'll always love you.
    Well that's good! Because once kids become teenagers, they think their parents are a pain in the butt.

    Robin : I won't ever.
    Good! Now can you go hop in the shower please?
    Robin: But Uncle Kermit an' Auntie Piggy are supposed to be on in the parade soon! Plus Prairie Grover an' Rosita!
    Here comes the Sesame Street float now .
    We watch as the float passes by with our friends. Prairie looks freezing! But Rosita and Grover look nice and bundled up
    Robin :But....

    I promise that I won't let you miss Uncle Kermit and Aunt Piggy. Just put a pair of undies on so no one has to see your little green tooshie. in case they're on soon.

    Ellie: Nooooo! *still holding Bop It firmly in grasp* Hm...Sleeping or another round of Bop It...sleeping...I say Bop It!

    Susie Q: Ellie some of us are trying to sleep! Don't you have errands to run tomorrow morning?

    Ellie: That I do! But Bop It...it's taunting me...I have to play it I can't sleep if I can't beat my score! *about to pull the 'Pull It' knob to start a new round*

    Ernie: Ellie, put the game down.

    Ellie: But...

    Ernie: I'll go first, see? *puts Rubber Duckie down* Your turn!

    Ellie: *puts down Bop It* But guys, it's the weekend and this is one of those times where I should be sleeping but I'm not and if anything I should do something productive during this period and that's playing Bop It!

    Rhonda: Is it Spring?

    :news: Uh...not even close. Why?

    Rhonda: 'Cos there sure seems to be a lot of ush-gush floatin' around here. Is the pollen count high or something?

    :news: Well, Kathy seems to be hitting it off with that teacher fellow; I noticed you had another tin of gourmet soap from Bubba in today's mail; and I heard the distinct sound of porcine giggling earlier, so Kermit must have done something right for a change. Nothing wrong with any of that.

    Rhonda: Uh...so you haven't been keeping tabs on our roomie?

    :news: You mean the blue thing and the pink thing are...oh! Um. Er. Well. Good for them.

    Rhonda *eyeroll* NO, you idiot, the other one!

    :news: The other idiot? *bristling* Are you calling our hostess an idiot?!

    Rhonda: No...sheesh...never mind. Sign this card for Walter and this one for Beth, willya?

    :news: Of course. *scribbles illegibly* I think Walter will like his gift.

    Rhonda: Of course you do. You picked it.

    :news: He shows promise! An inquisitive mind, always in the middle of things, and now he's begun filming everything! He's clearly destined to be a journalist! He'll LOVE the "Best of MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour Gag Reel"! *preens* And I'm sure Beth will enjoy the...what did you get her?

    Rhonda: Cheesecake Factory Gift Card. Can't go wrong with that. Speakin' of...maybe she needs company to enjoy that, hm? *trots off to deliver the gifts and cards*

    Annie Sue: Link, wait!

    Link Hogthrob: *jerks* Huh?!... *double-takes* Annie Sue!

    Annie Sue: Link, your mother was on the phone. She wanted to remind you to put on your knitted mittens before outside. *gives Link his mittens*

    Link Hogthrob: *refuses to wear the mittens* But, I'm all ready dressed in seven layers. *chopping down the tree* I even remembered to wear my extra pair of underwear, so my keester wouldn't get cold. And besides, why would I want to wear a fruity pair of mittens, anyway? A man, like me uses his bare hands to chop down a tree. Believe me, my dear, the last time I got a splinter was twenty minutes ago.

    Annie Sue: *shakes head in disbelief* I'm really impressed. -.- And also, she doesn't want you to be chopping down any trees! Angie is already getting an artificial one from the store. So, please put down the ax and leave this poor, and helpless little tree alone. Please?... :c

    Link Hogthrob: Just one more hack, then we've got ourselves a Christmas tr-- TIMBER!...
