MAD Musical!

Hey kids! We're going to write a MAD musical. Hopefully, it will include such well-known hits from last summer such as "Part of your world (The MRA song)." Thus far we have thought of our opening song. It's going to be to the tune of "Good Morning Baltimore" from Hairspray! and we have only written the first stanza. Give us your ideas if you have them.

"Good Morning Library"

Good morning library!
Every morning it's so scary
Because I know that when I walk in
It may be hours before I leave again!

We'd also like to rewrite a few Les Mis songs as we feel they are most fitting. Please write new posts with ideas (instead of just responding to this one).

Quote of the Day 6/30

“Even though he was an enemy of mine, I had to admit that what he had accomplished was a brilliant piece of strategy. First, he punched me, then he kicked me, then he punched me again.” --Jack Handey

Quote of the Day 6/29

“If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I’d carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like ‘Hey, look. He’s carrying a soldering iron!’ and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, ‘That’s right, it’s a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice.’ Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.” --Jack Handey

Quote of the Day 6/27

Well, with no more words of the day, let's go with a quote of the day, yes?

“Even though I was their captive, the Indians allowed me quite a bit of freedom. I could walk freely, make my own meals, and even hurl large rocks at their heads. It was only later that I discovered that they were not Indians at all but only dirty-clothes hampers.” --Jack Handey

WotD (Jun 7)

WotD June 6

Weoddababyeatsaboy. proper noun. This word is used by new parents who want to tell their parents that they've just had a baby boy, but they don't want to use up their cell phone minutes. Poor, poor family...you should have gotten a better cell phone plan (cue T-Mobile music).

Okay...Andrew gave us this riddle in the MRA and we can't solve it. Perhaps you at home could help.

Scenario: You're in a room with two doors and two other people. One will lead you safely out and one leads to a booby trap of death. One of the people always tells the truth and another one always tells a lie. You can only ask ONE question to ONE of the people...no asking the same question to both people! So, what do you ask?

Post your ideas and thoughts...I'm completely stumped.


persnippity. adj. A hick-like way of saying moody or temperamental. See also grouchy-pants or crabby.

Example: I reckon that-thar rainwater is gettin' folks all persnippity.

Evil Elevator!!

The scariest thing happened today.

Just fyi, the "staff" elevator is evil. I was going up to the 6th floor for a break so I hopped on the elevator (because I'm lazy like that), and the next thing I knew it dropped really fast and stopped. It was supposed to be going up. Um... yeah. Then it jerked around and dropped some more and I kept pushing door open to try to get off. Finally I got off at the 2nd floor and took the stairs up to the 6th floor. Maybe the elevator's just trying to help me get in shape. In any case, I'm sure not riding in that one again. And I thought I should warn y'all.

Have a good day! And don't get stuck in any elevators!

WotD (Jun 3)

loquacious. adj. Tending to talk much or freely; talkative; chattering; babbling; garrulous.

Example: Whoever came up with the word loquacious was probably loquacious him/herself.

So you probably already noticed that I added a music player thing. If you don't like it, just pause it. If you have any requests for songs to be added to the playlist, post them in a comment and I'll try to add them. Enjoy!

WotD (Jun 2)

devoid. adj. Without, lacking.

Andrew Snow is a stinky-poo face because he was devoid of emotion when he hoped that Brad was stranded and starving in the desert.

Phantasmagorical, Adj.

1. Characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions
2. Unrealistic; the quality of blurring real and imaginary elements as in a dream.

I'm not exactly sure how to use this word in a sentence; someone else can try. I just think it's a super cool word.

Movie Night

Tonight we watched "Il Postino" for movie night at Darcy's. I really liked the movie. The best thing was that it was David's movie! He loaned it to Darcy. Anyway, those of you who didn't come really missed out. You probably hate us. (I just threw that in for Jen, really, I'm not as pessimistic as her. I'm still hoping that you all see the errors of your ways and rearrange your priorities. Mkay?) And also you all owe us watermelon except Andrew.

For those who didn't hear the story, Andrew came by Darcy's at 9:45 this morning with a watermelon. He rode the bus. I don't know about you, but I just get this funny mental picture when I think about Andrew on the bus with a watermelon. But then he decided not to come to actually watch the movie. He's crazy. (Crazy?? I was crazy once. They put me in a room...)

Oh yeah, and Logan brought cheesecake in a bowl. Gotta love it.

The thing about this movie is that it really made me want to go to Italy. And Darcy, Lindsay, and Dan get to go. Oh boy am I jealous!

On a completely different note, I think someone should post the happenings of staff meeting on this blog. Since they are always so entertaining :)

Word of the Day (WotD) May 29

I'm not sure if Brad got his WotD from any particular website, so I picked one of my favorites. And someone else can post one for tomorrow. :-D

Today's word: pithy. Adj.
1. brief, forceful, and meaningful in expression; full of vigor, substance, or meaning; terse; forcible: a pithy observation.
2. of, like, or abounding in pith.

Example: "Why Jen, I really enjoy your pithy comments about the dungeon! Keep 'em coming!"

Ben ;-)

Word of the Day (WotD) May 28

Today's word is: gastronomical. Adj. Taken from the root words of "gastronomy" and"astronomical," this word deals with that which is involved with both the stomach and outer space.


Buzz Lightyear: "Something stinks. An alien from planet Z1D4X8 must be experiencing gastronomical problems."

By the way, I'm going to be gone from Thursday till Saturday, so someone will have to carry the "word of the day" torch until I return.
