Okay, fun aside...

I took Mum out today to get her a smart phone. Early Mother's day present.

I dragged her, kicking and screaming into the twentieth century!

Now I have to work on the 21st!

I've set her a mission - if she chooses to accept it - to get online and download an APP.

I say APP, because in the store she was loudly asking "What are APPS? I've heard of these APPS? How do I get an APP?"

More than one sales man was killing himself laughing.

I only responded with patience and love.

And a query as to whether the Samsung I just bought her will catch fire.

Cheers,

Jenifer

I'm up to 3 wins. Paid 4 diamonds (I think) to just play again.

Took one double six to beat him!

The next two day's tasks are easy.

I'll bide my time....

Hi July!

I think you're referring to your display case.

It is above the HOS in the Spring Room. This is where you proudly (or ashamedly) display how many Event Characters you have collected. Currently there are three - past Halloween, Christmas and this Easter.

They don't cost much to open, and therefore are well worth it, as they count towards your Room Purchase achievement.

But, basically they give other players a chance to have a sticky-beak at your progress.

It's handy to know who needs carrots.

But there's also envy and pride. And we all love the simple sins in life.

But, seriously - they count towards the Room Garnishment achievement. So worth it.

When you enter your Private Room you will see an icon at the centre bottom. Click on that to go to your 'refurbishment' mode'. Then you will have access to the display case and can scroll through the Event display cases.

Hope this helped,

Cheers,

Jenifer

Beadgal,

Firstly - For the love of God! When in port, use an internet cafe!

Secondly - SOOOOOOOOOO jealous!

Thirdly - Do me a favour? If you run across Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom - hit them over the head and send them to me in the post.

Address available on PM.

Cheers,

Jenifer

To trick or attack, that is the question. I think that's a Hamlet quote. Or am I getting it confused with 'Knock, knock, who's there?'

"Can you see if he has a new watch?"

Grim peers closely at Tarquin. "No, he must have been demoted."

"I'd feel guilty attacking him after all we've put him through. We need a diversion."

"He won't fall for racquet ball again." Grim frowns. "What about Hilo?"

"A charity fun run?"

"For what? Orphans?"

"No, anyone would do a charity fun run for orphans. Tarquin's a PC hipster. He'd only do it for transgender orphans."

"We could find one and dress him up?"

"As fabulous as he'd look in a House of Schpadoinkle original, I think the orpans have been through enough. No. PC hipsters have to be on the cutting edge of charity. We need some bizarre endangered species that no one has ever heard of, so Tarquin can lecture everyone about the fact they've never heard of it."

Grim taps on her rectangular picture phone. "Aspidoscelis uniparens."

"What's that?"

"It's a desert grassland whiptail lizard."

"Well I have no idea what that is, so we're halfway there. What's PC about it?"

Grim is grinning from ear to ear. "They're all female. And while they are endangered, they DO successfully mate and reproduce."

"Leapin' Lezzie Lizards! We have a winner!"

Quick as a flash from a drunken hobo, Grim has posted the first annual MC Fun Run for endangered species.

We watch Tarquin check his matching rectangular picture phone. "Does everyone have one of those?"

"These days, yes."

"I think I want one too."

Tarquin taps the pretty little pictures.

"What's he doing?"

"Googling."

"In public?! That's just wrong!"

"Wait!"

We watch Tarquin throw off his armour, revealing his stretch lycra jogging ensemble. "eewwww!" and limber up. "EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!"

And he's off.

"We have a go! This is not a drill!"

"No, that's dynamite. And stop chewing it!"

"I've got-"

"Don't say a cunning plan!" I cut Grim off. "If I hear those words one more time-"

"A drill."

"Oh, sorry. I've got the dynamite. No! Anabel, we don't chew dynamite!" Hoppy was a natural with munitions, Bell just wants to bat them around. But she will learn. I hope.

"So what do we know?" Grim packs her backpack with techno-thingamy-jigs.

I chew thoughtfully on the dynamite. "Okay. Six cloaks. Gold, black, red, blue, green and purple. Gold is the leader. I think Black is second in command. He oversees all operations on the ground. Purple is the doctor. His task is to keep the denizens medicated and the asylum full, for revenue and complacency. Red is the interrogator." We both shiver at the memory of our encounter with him. "He has a penchant for torture. We do NOT want to be captured by him."

"Say that again!"

"What, all of it?"

"Never mind."

"Okay, so that leaves Blue and Green. Blue appears to have a lab. He may have been responsible for the one we blew up. With all the mechanical replicas." I mourn the little critters quietly. "We have no idea about Green."

"Where is this secret entrance?"

"The Sepulchre. It's the HOS on the right. It goes deep and there's a stone path over the water at the bottom left. It must lead somewhere."

As I'm pointing at the monitor showing the Dark Tower. A guard walks past the HOS we need to get to.

"Oh craponacracker!"

As the guard turns we can see the fresh young face and golden dreadlocks we know so well.

"Tarquin!" We both cry.

"Well this changes everything." I smile

Ah, the dulcet tones of a jello crazed mad man.

That really brightens my day.

I need to get out more.

Jenifer

Love you Randy!

Leaping out of the dunce corner, shouting

Eight Ball / (C) Mirror Nave / Fleur-de-lis

And then "HEY!!!!"

You're on a cruise ship?

Qu. 1 Where you off to?

Qu. 2 Do you know how much they charge for the WiFi?

It could cost more than the cruise.

I've spent 12 diamonds and 2000 coins and won ONCE. Took a double six to do it.

The next two days' tasks are pretty easy, so I'll try again tomorrow.

Maybe I shouldn't have "Stupid Troll!" after my avatar?

Grim boots up the HQ monitors. She must be angry.

"Did that hurt your foot?"

"A little." She mumbles, then turns on the computers.

"Ian!" I call "Where are Cash and Wickerbat?"

The main monitor flickers and focuses on two ferrets in a cage.

"My babies!" Grim cries. "Who has them?!"

We cannot see any movement outside the cage.

"Ian, what is this location?"

Subterranean laboratory. Under the Dark Tower.

"I can get us there." I pat Grim's shoulder. "But just the first area. We'll have to wing it from there. But I think I know of a side entrance we could use."

"What are they- WAIT!"

We watch as the majestic sweep of a blue cloak passes by the cage. The cage opens and a hand reaches in. It picks up Wickerbat. "OWCH!"

"Wickerbat!" Grim is helpless to watch as he is taken out of the cage.

"We are heading out!" I swing my hammer over my head. "This is not a drill!"

"No, it's a hammer."

"Do we need a drill?"

"They do come in handy."

"Okay! Lets find a drill!"

D'OH!

And with Grammy's list to guide me, too!

Sitting in the corner with my Dunce hat on.

I'm glad he read the posts.

We love him - but will call him out on stupid decisions.

That's what real friends do.

Glad he's taking the smart path now.

Thanks Ada,

Crafting Spring pets.

I plan to work out what I need to craft them all (but I don't have to yet) and sell or disenchant the rest.

Cheers,

I know - it's NEXT Sunday.

There's nothing like five minutes of blind panic to liven up an ordinary day.

HAH!

And I left me destructo-ray in my other knickers!

Typical,

So THAT'S the answer! I wondered what 15 X 7 was!

If she's saying biscuits, then it would be 'bickies'.

However, Google supports this claim - and it's spelling.

ARE there cookies or biscuits on a wishlist?

Katie, I'm going to need to borrow your bedazzled straitjacket until I learn the answer.

Cheers,

Jenifer
