Everyone is in a joyous mood now that Santa Cap'n Bob has doled out all his wonderful gifts.
It is rather unfortunate for him that he has just made a rapid and unplanned descent into the only prickly cactus in the area.
Several of my partner's areclamouring to have the privilege of removing the needles from his nether regions.
However he wishes to retain his modesty, especially as it has recently been exposed all too often in the hospital wing.
Roo's salve is at hand and he grabs it and swiftly disappears into the Tea Room kitchen.
All goes quiet as we all wait for the feminine squeals erupting from our worthy cook!
But not a sound.just a few unseemly grunts .
My magical broom disappears through the door and there is soon the swishing of cacti needles being deposited back onto their owner.
Cap'n Bob returns to the room with a very Rosey glow followed by Mrs Fletcher grinning from ear to ear and holding a large pair of tweezers.
All is well once more at this festive time!

We are all in the Tea Room admiring the generous gifts that have just appeared. The Cap'n however is still standing due to his recent attempt to fly.
Roo's salve has been returned to the HOS Repository.
As my partner is still somewhat out of sorts, it falls to me as the AC2 to.take over and formulate plans on the prevailing evils that surround us
.It has begun to snow outside in keeping with the festive the others rush outside for more fun and games.

Ah well! Time to resume our discussion later and so I follow them out through the door, and:
I am bombarded with wet snow balls accompanied by shrieks of delight!
I make a swift and rather soggy retreat back into the Tea Room and watch my partner s chase each other found the hill near the Castle like children.
I rely some rather colorful figures on the far slope hurtling down towards the most, so I ask my broom to get me a spyglass (UK English = telescope) from the Repository to get a closer look
They are the Winter avatars also having fun.
However,not everyone out there is enjoying th seasonal weather..
The urchins at the frozen moat side who are selling the holiday wands and gift boxes are bus with the cold.
I turn and call to Mrs Fletcher to get some bowls of her special hot soup.

(To be continued!)

With these on a tray I am just about to go back outside when I spy slight movement's in the snow on the far slope.
I pick up my spyglass to get a better look.
I am astonished to see the pristine snow being flattened into large footsteps and which a making straight for my frolicking partner's!
Instinctively I rush back to the door and tell at my partner's:

"Emergency, emergency! Return here NOW!"
I turn to Cap'n Bob and hand him the spyglass.
"What are those??*
He takes one look and goes a ghastly white
"Those are TROLL footprints!"

Time for me to check myself in and claim a room as mine. Between my addiction to this game and the stresses at work, I can really use a place to go where no one in the real world can find me.

Yes indeedy Amethyst dear.. ....As soon as I send this Special Tea Room Noodle Soup off to Poor Flu ridden Riddler....Hummmm... ...Let's see here....After reading about Your MC Addiction (We All have that Dear... ...) and Stresses at Work? Oh My...Sigh... ...we will make that a Deluxe Room OK?...But first Amethyst dear...You do know that Captain Randy and Second in Demand PTG have to give Their "Meet & Greet Welcomes" too for it to be Official like.... and.... of course there's the Extra Special Huggy Jacket our Sweet Roo Makes for All of our Slightly Insane Residents......


Re:Ready for the special room

[Post New]by Amethyst2066 on Dec 31, 17 8:14 AM
Why thank you for the welcome dandy dog. Do take your time delivering the soup, I am more than happy to wait. That deluxe room sounds great!

Well, you see, the work situation is a long and complicated story involving a ransomware virus, unusable software, piles of work and total hardware failure. Oh, and a boss who thinks no one should have breaks at all. Let us just say that I am over a month behind due to all of this in my work and it isn’t looking good.

I will just take up space on this tooo comfortable couch here in the lobby to await the welcome speeches and that nice huggy jacket.

I'm sitting here minding my own business when suddenly I see rays of sunshine dancing infront of me.I look up just as a huge bucket of turkey legs,potatoes & other waste products lands in my face!

"Oh " I cry out " Not on my new all weather jacket!" A head peers at me & I hear a nervous voice say " Is that you Roo?"
"Yes dandydog" I reply followed by a huge sigh.
"Do you hide in dumpsters often?" dandydog asks.A little peeved sarcasm gets the better of me.
"Only in dumpsters that have 'CARDBOARD ONLY' written on the front in large capital letters"

Suddenly sheepish dandydog says "Oops...I didn't notice that.I was just helping out Mrs Fletcher.Do you need a hand out of there"
I am quick to reply "I'm not going anywhere until I know that Randys pet Frost has gone"
The expression on dandydogs face turns to one of shock!!!
"Surely your not afraid of Frost,he is cute,friendly & gives awesome rides?"

"Under normal circumstances I would agree,now please tell me if he has gone"
dandydog nods & helps me out.As I stand there still trying to pick off lumps of Christmas pudding etc from my lovely jacket,I see that dandydog is waiting for an explaination & having sworn her to secrecy I go ahead.

"This beautiful NEW jacket,which I am wearing for the first time ,has been especially re-fashioned for me,by Kaley.Since PTG took away my stash of bombs & dynamite I have been slowly gathering replacements to fill the extra inside pockets,which are exactly the perfect size.That being said & being a cautious person,there is no way I'm standing anywhere near a fire breathing dragon.I hiccup from Frost & I'm Toast!!

Half asleep on the couch and not kiddingly, it really is extremely comfortable, a noise wakes me. Blurry eyed, I waken to some one standing over me and introducing himself and someone not there. Glancing around Cap Randy, I spot the snowball fight outside, though not clearly as I seem to missing my spectacles.

“Hello, Cap Randy, nice to meet you. I am Indeed Amethyst.” Barely spotting my specs on a nearby table, I pick them up and put them on. “Ahhh, that’s better. Now I can see you clearly.” And the snow fun going on behind Cap Randy.

“I am here to check myself in to get some rest and distress. I Have a game addiction to get over and need a real vacation from work.” Before I can say more, a walking snowman comes in the door saying something unintelligible. “You might want to turn around,” I say to Cap Randy.

Cap Randy turned, gasped in exasperation and excused himself to see to this new turn of events. In the meantime, I see another lady walk in looking just as haggard as I am feeling.

After we buried PTG, who was wearing at least 3 layers of thermal clothing, in a bombardment of snowballs...maybe a barrage, a barge, or a three-car garage...I was cold, wet and in need of stiff cup of warm, steamy tea. Bring on the chewy matcha!

The tearoom’s fireplace was doing its job. The room was cozy warm. Captain Randy and dandydog were standing near a groggy, prone person, trying to get her to talk. She seemed to want/need sleep/rest.

Taking the opposite side of the room, I snugged down in my favorite snuggly armchair.... the perfect spot for jotting all one’s creative thoughts.

Since I needed something to write on and there are never paper napkins in the tearoom (only luxurious linens here), I acquired a collection of plain stamps because they come on note-sized pads from the HOS repository. I watched PTG once and found out how to breach the barred wooden door. I took a small stack of plain stamp notepads along with Invisible Ink to use it in my beautiful, white-feather quill.

Having the needed components for creating... here it goes. The feather knows what to do and gets to it. I hold the paper flat while the quill dips the pointy end of itself in the ink and puts the creative thoughts to plain stamp paper.

When I was just a little grill

A giant can be such a crazy lout...
But what to my wandering right-eye did he spew?
Lots of peach pits in honey rum brew.

I have yet to read the quill’s creative, written works. I haven’t found the way to reveal the words, as of yet!!!

If there is still room, I would also like to check in. I need somewhere where I can relax. Over the last few months I had to care for someone I love very much, and between that, work and starting the game over (PC crashed) I could use some quiet (and maybe some laughs). No need for that special snuggy jacket, I can knit or crochet my own (maybe out of some spare dust bunnies).

But no angora wool, I am allergic to it.

Your friend, Grim, is not an angora rabbit?

After we buried PTG in a bombardment of snowballs, I followed DD into Mrs. Fletcher's Tea Room, and as she went in search of tea, I went for the coffee as I never seemed to acquire the taste for tea in any configuration.

While DD went off to do some writing, I decided to open my new lovely day planner with the beautiful colored pencils inside because I saw Cap. Randy and Dandydog talking to someone I hadn't seen before so I thought I'd just make a sketch in case we need it later. After all, who knows who's who these days, what with all the evil surrounding us again lately.

Just as I finish the sketch, in comes another newcomer! Well, isn't that just the strangest thing?! Two newcomers in one day? I better do another sketch, and I'll just keep them both safe in my day planner for future reference, if needed. Who knows....there may be a story to be had and the editor has been complaining about no pictures to go with my articles lately. I tried to explain about my camera still being in the shop getting fixed so sketches will have to do for now.

I wonder how PTG is faring under all that snow? When we left him, he looked very much like a snowman..........

As I continued to sit and wait, I started to look around. I saw the beautifully decorated hearth and the warm fire burning in the fire place as well as a number of people ingaged in various activities. When I looked back toward the door, I saw a lady entering who looked like she needed to get away as much as me. I started to get up to talk to her when I got waylaid by someone carrying a tray of cups of hot liquid.

“Would you like some hot tea?” He asked withou introducing himself.

Looking at the cups dubiously, I grudgingly accepted. Don’t get me wrong, I do like tea but something seemed off about the look and smell of this tea. My first sip as he walked away told me I wasn’t off the mark. I don’t know what was in it, but it wasn’t a flavor that I have had before. I politely put the cup on the closest table and ignored it.

Sighing, I noticed a buffet counter with hot drinks and snacks. Feeling a bit peckish, I checked it out and came away with a cup of good tea and some cookies. I returned to my couch to enjoy my snack and continue my people watching.
