Um . . . we hide?
It’s too late for that?
Should I start a new character, then?
Ooh, can Lupin weaponize the crinkle balls against the vacuum? He still has at least one and appears to be aware of his surroundings, and they’re quite enervating things, turns out!
Lupin looks happy. I’m not sure if the enemy or the team needs to worry more…
Love Natasha behind Goldie’s shield and Lupin is not done with crinkle balls yet.
If they all band together, they can go for a clean sweep…
Deconed, but still doomed.
Uh. Has Lupin ever done a face poof before? He look like he’s trying to channel Elvis.
And again, small tablet keyboard. Who is this “Elvid” I nearly summoned?
I like Violet’s “old school” method of time keeping – with violet colored sand.
Eeek! I can’t watch! I bet that vacuum monster is gonna suck!
I thought it said “cringe,” but then why is Lupin smiling? Ah, “crinkle!” I also notice a dust bunny clinging between Goldie and Elvis.
Cats could never say where she comes from
They would always scatter ‘til she’s done
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows, she comes and goes
Vacuum – foe or ally?
Who could hang a name on you?
With dirt contained in every new day
Still, evil lurks within you
Don’t question why she needs to clean debris
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
Pristine’s not attained
Much cat hair still remains
And suction’s lost, at such a cost
Oh my, dusty doomsday
Who could save a crew like you?
When you cringe with every new play
Still, not gonna diss you
“This game is yours to lose”, they heard her say
Cast your spells before they slip away
Lupin, you seem fine
Lose that ball before you lose your mind
Ain’t rules unkind?
Goodbye, until Tuesday
No one plays the game like you
When there’s danger every new day
Yeah, we’re gonna miss you

Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Beatrixia: We have a good supply of game boards, so I’d like to schedule a game night at the No Longer Hidden Great Pyramid Library.
Thomios: I’d recommend a lot of paw foods for snacks. Nothing too sticky, although we could have a few dipping sauces.
Bea: Great idea. I’ll talk with the Xanadu hive about some honey sauces. Oh, where’s Lupinium?
Thomios: He’s at the Owl Temple playing one-on-one with Wicket.
At the Owl Temple
Lupinium: Wow, you’ve still got it Wicket. How do you manage to stay in such good shape at your age?
Wicket: Just eating right and getting plenty of exercise.
Lupinium: Are we on for next week?
Wicket: How about Wednesday?
Lupinium: Sounds like a plan.
this on july fourth?
Did the Cone counteract or otherwise cure the Cursed Crinkles?
Hamilton A. Cat: "Tally o’ cats, to the redoubts! Load the muskets and cannon with dust-bunnies and crinkle balls. Defend the tuna and kibble.
Yonder are the Hessian cats! Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom to nap and tuna must, like cats of honor, undergo the fatigue of defending it."
Happy Fourth of July.
Elvis needs to cast a spell. What would work on vacuum cleaners? I legitimately don’t know.
Today my cat tried to swallow a dust bunny, he almost choked to death! I didn’t know what to do, I shook him then he was finally able to get it out. Then when it was gone he quickly fell asleep on my foot. He’s so cute
OT: Happy Birthday USA (& me)!
I wonder if Jules will appear as an NPC
Slightly off-topic: power of the vacuum cleaner to inspire terror
I found that a raccoon had learned to circumvent the magnetic cat flap by the simple expedient of pulling rather than pushing to get in. For several days, I could hear it on top of my refrigerator and see its tail disappear as I chased it out of the kitchen.
I set my old, very noisy vacuum cleaner in the utility room next to the cat flap to the outside. I turned it on and plugged it into a remote controlled power outlet. The next time I heard the raccoon, I grabbed the remote, as I gave chase, and turned on the vacuum cleaner just as the raccoon dived for the cat door.
Never saw that raccoon again.
I wonder if the vacuum will turn out to be Tortimer.
Go for the power cord, guys!!!
Oh, so the crinkle crazed rogue planes to use the crinkle ball to crinkle craze the vaccuum dragon.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!
My PTSD is kicking in. They’ve been shooting off fireworks in my neighborhood nonstop for over 5 hours now. Some are almost over the roof of my house.
