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.

Prunus tripla

It is still cherry season.  The human male did the grocery marketing and came home with a bag of the biggest, blackest cherries I have ever seen.

How big are they?

triple-cherry6

They’re a little less than one Benno in height, about two Bennos around, and about three Bennos in weight.

triple-cherry5

He’s terrified of them.

triple-cherry4

Run, Benno, run!

There are a lot of twin cherries in the double handful the human female brought for lunch.

Idunn’s Pomes and Ponytails!  It’s a triple cherry!  I have never seen the like!

triple-cherry1

How does one pull a triple cherry?  I guess we need someone else to participate.  No, Fisi, I’m not letting you do it. I don’t want hyena spit on my fruit!

triple-chery2

Let’s go see if we can find someone else to play with us…

A Visit From My “Brother”, Part I: Spare me.

Ugh. So Thor has come by today, to let me know that my evil clone is securely locked up and under magical restraint. The Avengers are an annoying bunch, to say the least, but they do have their uses. Is it very wrong of me to hope that Evil Loki misbehaves just enough to get a visit from the Hulk?

Thor says he also wants to check in on Sigyn–upon whom he dotes–and see how she is doing. Considering she was chained up in a windowless warehouse, practically starved, threatened by gingerbread and wild beasts, and subjected to the poisonous rantings of a megalomaniacal not-me, I think she is doing very well indeed! She had nightmares last night, but a cuddle and some warm milk soon soothed her back to sleep. The hyena, who insisted in sleeping at Sigyn’s feet, also had nightmares, and trust me, the whimpering snore of a hyena is not a lovely sound. I put in ear plugs and slept on the sofa.

Sigyn is introducing Thor to Fisi. Two shaggy carnivores with sloppy eating habits and sub-par IQ’s–they will have a lot to talk about.

Sigyn is quite fond of her new pet, even though it does seem to be gnawing on Mjolnir!

GNX_eIgxrylZ_buXb2In0X8MgOFC13knXb2_05M9wyc=w888-h666-no

Bad hyena! Bad Fisi! No biscuit! Ehehehehehe!

Oh, great. They’ve worked out their little squabble, and now the hyena is fawning and groveling over Thor. Mangy thing tried to bite me. Animals never like me for some reason…

Who knew hyenas have a tickle spot?!

Do You Need Help, Brother?

gQDBLZmbG9I34k6v_3UsmtU9BEvrGwVJjdzEBATf_WA=w888-h666-no

Vroooom!

hhyOpLhZecvc7bfkLldISd1FqFyQh2FFQEzHeGCGfrg=w888-h666-no

"Brother! It is good to see you! Do you require assistance?"

"What?! Thor?! What are you and your Avenger friends doing here?"

"We have been tracking your evil look-alike. He has caused a lot of mischief in this realm. Let us help you subdue him!"

RdhOyF_HZ5EI-COSpMV8dwQy2o606bHQ5cB1TfJJQak=w888-h666-no

"I don’t NEED your help! And I don’t need you, Stark!"

"If you say so, Reindeer Games. Looks to me like this is standoff. And don’t you have a damsel in distress to rescue?"

DrROUMkJIPCgCcSMgeNtcsLVHueLGgrfLkpXIMSjrWQ=w888-h666-no

Hawkeye: "Personally, I don’t care if both of you kill one another. In my book, even one Loki is too many, but seriously, let us take this little stinker off your hands."

"Oh, thank you for the offer, but as you can see, the original has triumphed over the bad copy."

rIzbZSkGLP6vbpUbkZ5DtlkelkRJZP5wL8PAAYDFrwk=w888-h666-no

"I will, however, let you take out the garbage. . . as soon as he tells me where Sigyn is."
