    Hmm... Looks like I've got a bit of a free day today. Nice and sunny, with a bit of chill from the sporadic rains. Think I'll go make some cookies for the gang. *Gathers ingredients for the dough, maple syrup bottle, cracked walnuts, and baking sheet. *Sets to work with a helpful hand from one of the spooks. *Humming to self in tune to MCR.

    Cotterpin (driving up with a trailer full of stuff): Can I add some ingredients?

    Pearl (sniffs): I smell heavenly sugah goodness...

    Kelly (yawns, stretches): Hey, Ed! Um, what is MCR?

    *Waving hi...
    To Kelly: MCR = Muppet Central Radio.
    To Cotterpin: Sure... *Brings her a separate small bowl of dough so she can add her ingredients to her own batch.
    To Pearl: There should be some that've cooled by now... *More are baking in the oven.

    You're lucky we don't have a certain googly-eyed muncher around. Though it'd be good to have him back. Maybe... Just dunno who I would take on as a new added roomie. Oh well, time enough for that in a couple of weeks.

    Kelly (guzzling some water): Oh? A couple of weeks, huh? *heart beats faster*

    Pearl (gently elbows Ed): Yeah, she wants her sugah-muffin back.

    Cotterpin (whispers as she adds different fruit flavors to the mix): There's also someone else she'd like to have, but she'll tell you about it later.

    *To Pearl: Yeah, I was there at that party she had down in that maze.
    *Sampling a maple walnut cookie, putting a batch in a big ziploc bag so they can chill in the common room's fridge... *Wraps a few more in individual baggies as presents for the dorms.

    You know... Been mulling over how to finish off the second square of haunters. There's a bit of wiggle room that I'm a smidge unsure of. Maybe we can talk later, there's no hurry though, still have the upper half to work on.
    *Whispers to Kelly: :hungry: as the 8th king.

    Kelly (scratches head and shrugs): Okay, whatever you say. It's been a really long day.

    Cotterpin (nods): A financially stressful day.

    Pearl: A PAIR o' financially stressful days.

    Kelly (angrily): I GET IT! I GET IT! *sighs* There was that hiccup with the electric company, then the car inspection people wouldn't take checks, then I went back to the car place because I have no air conditioning in my car and it'll be a long drive to clinicals and they nearly made me have a stroke, but I got some more refrigerant so at least I can get cool now, even though I'm not paying for a motor thingie that is worth more than the car --.

    Pearl: Oh, look! Cookies! *sticks one in Kelly's mouth to shut her up*

    Kelly (mumbles for another 15 minutes)

    Kelly (sighs and watches TV): We need comedy.

    Cotterpin: It's a shame that plaid-wearing guy moved out. I thought he was very interesting. I'd love to start a Doozer News business. Someday.

    Kelly: Do you think Ed'd let him come back if he roomed with us?

    Cotterpin (counting on fingers): So ... how many roomies are we gonna have?

    Kelly: Well, Spike's a given.

    Cotterpin: Uh-huh.

    Kelly: I don't think Waldo would ever forgive me if you left.

    Cotterpin (blushes): Assuming he stays. I hope he does. And Cait an' them, too, of course.

    Kelly: Of course. *sighs* But Hoggle needs to work on his stuff over at the Bog of Eternal Stench.

    Cotterpin: Then there's Pearl.

    Kelly: I like her.

    Cotterpin (nods): So do I.

    *Checking online mailbox. Hmm, nothing yet from her. Oh well, she's never let me down before, I can wait.

    *Count and Uncle D are viewing the designs for the kitchen repairs/updating.
    *They jot down a couple of things they like, mindful of budgeting concerns and all manner of conveniences the kitchen should feature.

    Kelly (flings a letter over in Ed's mailbox): You know, Deimos must be REALLY camera-shy. *sighs* Can't I just skip this semester and go straight to being employed?

    Cotterpin (shakes head)

    Kelly (melodramatically bawls): I want some MONEY! How am I supposed to make the world a better place without MOOLAH? Waaaaah!

    Cotterpin (sighs, to anyone who will listen): If she tries to help the needy, she'll never get rich.

    Kelly (sniffles): Yeah ... *sniff* ... as long as I can pay the bills and save up for retirement, the rest is gravy.

    Cotterpin: Don't forget you need a new car.

    Kelly (shrugs): I have air conditioning again. If it'll just last another year or two, I'll be happy.

    Got it Kell. He must've also stumped the historians who wrote of the legends. Meh.

    *Goes through potential list, satisfied with what we've got so far. We're gonna have to expand afterwards, but that's based on my own motivational driving force. *Grabs a cookie and contemplates how it'll look on his roommate's wall.

    Beth: Swimsuit?
    Red: Check!
    Beth: Sweatshirt?
    Red: Check! *thinks for a minute and then looks puzzled* Why would you need to pack both a swimsuit and a sweatshirt?
    Beth: Well, this cabin is in Northern Minnesota. It will be warm during the day and cold at night. And really, the swimsuit is mostly for the hottub anyway
    Red: Oh got it. Will I be cold if I swim in the lake?
    Beth: You might, but you'd like the hottub, it'll warm you up
    Red: Works for me!
    *they go back to packing for a three day weekend getaway*

    Don't forget to breathe... Both in and out!
    Oh, and there are cookies for you on your doorknob, you might want to take those too.

    *Meanwhile, in Room1...

    You know, I was all set to work on turning the Swedish Chef into Henry the Eighth for Numbervania. But now...
    Count: What happened?
    Well, I sorta got distracted, thinking maybe it'd be better to have King Hungry the Eighth instead. But that brings up the question of what classic monster or mythic creature/being to turn the Chef into. Also, I'm not entirely sure about King Hungry.
    Count: Vhy not ask Kelly for descript help?
    I would... Hexcept there's rully no pic of him at the Wiki. She'd have to have either Volume 8 of the Sesame Street Library/Treasury books or the 1-2-3 Storybook on hand.

    Oh well...

    Pearl (stepping out of the shower in room 2): Hey, Cotterpin? You 'round here, hon?

    Cotterpin: I'm in my room designing some new things for my Waldo statue ....

    Pearl (enters Cotterpin's room): Have you seen Kelly 'round?

    Cotterpin (momentarily stops drawing): Uh ... she went on a walk. She said she'd be gone for awhile. I think Hoggle went searching for Dr. Teeth to learn where he gets all that jewelry an' stuff.

    Pearl: Well, she tol' me ta get that guy on the phone an' ask if he wants ta come.

    Cotterpin: Spike?

    Pearl (shakes her head): Naw, that other guy. Little pardner, 'bout yea big, with black horn-rimmed glasses.

    Cotterpin (blinks): The journalist?

    Pearl: Yeah, that's the guy. What's his name so I don't make a fool o' mahself?

    Cotterpin: Hmm ... no one really knows. At least, I don't. Everyone just called him Newsie. Check his mother's house. He might be there.

    Pearl (sighs)
