A Mischievous Milestone!

I’m pretty sure that since most humans are too busy to keep track of such things–and that some (like the human female) can’t count that high–none of the minions who read this ongoing record of my exploits have realized that, sometime in the last week, my journal has passed

TWO THOUSAND ENTRIES.

200-closeup

Granted, some of them were brief announcements (often of the nature of “I didn’t do it” with a chuckle at some poor mortal’s misfortune), but I still feel this calls for some sort of recognition.

Gather, my adoring masses!  My ears await your paeans of praise!  Where are the armies marching in review?  Where are the fireworks? Where is my parade already?

2000-crowd

Ah, well.  At least there’s cake.

Feel free to express your adulation in the comments!  Don’t leave me here with only the noise of Thor chewing.

The Only Thing Worse Than Costumes is a Party, Part I: Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here

Double ugh!  Extorting sweetmeats from the populace went well enough—with Sigyn’s wheelbarrow, we made quite a haul—and I was content with a productive evening.  But noooo!  Sigyn has wheedled and cajoled me into attending a partyForced socializing.

I’d rather chew broken glass.

I can only hope that the refreshments are good and that everyone else’s costume looks stupider than mine.

Looks like we’re some of the first to arrive.  The decorations leave a lot to be desired and I don’t see any refreshments at all.  I’m already ready to leave.

A: “Guten Abend, Sigyn!  Und guten Abend, Loki.”

S: “Doktor Arnold?  Remus?  Is that you?  Your costumes are so cute!”

hall-party1

L:  “I’m glad to see you, Arnold.  Your silly bomb get-up makes my sparkly pajamas look downright dignified.”

S: “Tony!  That has to be you!  You make a fantastic Dalek!”

hall-party2-dalek

TS: "Pepper wouldn't let me wear the Iron Man armor.  At least this way I 
still get to swan around in a red tin can."

hall-party3-exterminate

"EXTERMINATE!!"

hall-party4-here is steve

"Hey, Cap!  The party's this way!  Come on in!"

hall-party5-steves a pez

CA:  “Hi, guys.  Happy Halloween.”

S: “Hee hee hee hee!  Steve, you look so cute!”

L: “It’s official.  I’m in Hel.”

hall-party6-muffy and tchalla

S:  “T’Challa!  You’re a kitty!”

BP:  “Indeed. Greetings, Sigyn.  You look lovely.”

S:  “And Muffy!  You look great.  But who are you supposed to be?”

M: “I tried to think of the scariest person I know.  I’m Pepper Potts in CEO mode.”

hall-party7-remus

L: “Keep your paws off my cape, you loathsome primate.”

R: <chittering>

hall-party8-bruce and hawkeye

CA: “Hey!  Great chicken get-up, Hawkeye!”

H: “Bwaaak!  And I brought the Spider Kid.”

SM/PP: “Hi, guys!  Look!  I’m a caterpillar!”

S: “And, Bruce!   You make a very convincing turtle.”

BB: “Yeah. It just seemed sort of natural to go with green.”

hall-party9-thor and rocket

L:  “Rocket. I should have known you’d turn up if there was food.  There isn’t any, actually, but here you are anyway.  I see you didn’t put a lot of effort into a costume.”

R: “What do you mean?  This is the perfect costume.  I’m R. J.  You know–the handsome one from Over the Hedge?”

L:  “And Thor.  Don’t think I don’t recognize you under all that fake squirrel fur.  Who or what are you supposed to be?”

T: “I am the mighty Hammer…er, Hammy, also from Over the Hedge.”

L: “And you thought “demented squirrel” was a good choice because—?”

T: “I was with Rocket and the costume shop was running a two-for special.”

L: “Norns’ nighties, Thor. You’re such an idiot.”

hall-party10-bucky in a hoodie

CA: “Bucky!  You made it!”

<snort!>  What's with the pink hoodie, Murder Boy?

BB:  “Left things ’til the last minute.  This was all they had.”

Well, it is very fetching.  I shall EXTERMINATE you last.

hall-party11-quill is pink

Everyone: “Quill!”  “Peter!”  “Star Lord!”

Q: “Wow.  Um.  I know this is… uh… a girly tennis Smurfette outfit or something, but…It’s dress-up day, right?  So I figured, go with an opposite, because I’m, uh, very manly and… Hey!  I brought a mix tape!  Anybody want to dance?”

L:  Someone please kill me now.

Revenge of the Flora, Part 8

Vrooooom!

Screeeech!

Hey!  What’s all the ruckus?  Why’ve you got hold of my friend Sigyn, and what’s the kitten doing on the ground?

33-heres-rocket1

“Stay out of this, rodent.  It doesn’t concern you.”

“‘Rodent‘, is it?  Just for that, me and my buddy Groot, here, are gonna unleash six kinds of whoop-ass on you. ”

34-heres-rocket3

“See this cannon?  When this is all done, there won’t be enough left of you jokers to make a small side-salad and a boutonniere.  What do you say to that?”

35-heres-rocket4

Vrooooom!

“Hey, Rocket—Need any help?”

“Nah, Cap, I got this, but because I’m such a nice guy, I’ll let you take a swing at a couple of the posies, if you want.”

36-heres-steve

“Thanks!  Because I hate bullies, even if they do look like a corsage run amok.”

37-heres-steve2

“Now, listen up:  You weeds have two of my good friends.  Let them go now and we can all walk away from this in one piece.”

“Ha!  Do your worst, Captain Spandex!”

<knuckles cracking>  “I was kinda hoping you’d say that.”

“You stand no chance of defeating us!”

On va voir!
