it's left me wishing for a more idyllic life. So... I thought
writing this "Day in the Life" piece on Dyeland would be fun. I
hope you enjoy it.

Have a good day!
Dearest and loveliest of
I'm sorry we didn't get
to visit last night. I stayed in the Tunnels helping some kids
with their entrance exams for college. Say... how are you on the
"new math" these days? ;-)
Anyhow, I'm not sure
whether you're here or away today so I just wanted to say that,
wherever you may be, I hope this day brings you happiness.
March 31st, 8:35 AM
I'm in Dyeland
today and Monica told me you
too. How about we take Lulu and Widget for a walk this
There are some

My aunt just

to do a flannel shirt raid

anyway. We might as well enjoy them!

NO. YOU CANNOT MARRY

Well! This is just the
perfect time for Andrew and Adam to go off
on a buddymoon to Las Vegas. What do they think they're going to
do there anyway?!?! They don't drink, they don't gamble, and I
know they're not interested in showgirls. I mean, sure, saving a
world from aliens is a big deal but come on!
And poor Catherine has her
hands full. (Have you seen Vincent
lately?) ::rolls eyes::
So I guess fixing this is up to
us. Who wants to go with me to
take our "Queen Tinkerbelle" for the cat scan she so clearly
I guess that drool bucket hit her harder than we thought...
March 31st, 5:10 PM
It's come to my attention
there's a rumor flying around that I am
in Las Vegas with Adam. This is not true.
We're in Ohio. On
business. We'll be back soon.
PS- Laja, why'd you send me a text
message at 4:12 reading '"I do!" Just curious. Are you OK?

Subject line: Advice
Recently I have decided that my
appearance is lacking in a certain modern flair. I believe I have
chosen a hairstyle to move me into the modern era but feel attire must
come next. As your wardrobe is widely regarded as tasteful,
attractive, and "swoon-inducing;" I was hoping you might advise me.
My first question is this:
Exactly how many shirt buttons am I allowed to leave unbuttoned?
It seems you would know.

Subject line: What
I wanted to tell you
I'm sorry we got interrupted earlier but I thought I should head to the
Cafe once I got that email about Laja. I just wish I'd gotten
there before she took that drool bucket to the head... I knew
those things were bad news. I mean if nothing else they're
Then, of course, there were the aliens. Then that trip with
Adam... I'll get to that in a moment. And I think
something's wrong with Vincent... But I'll deal with that later.
What I wanted to tell you is a secret I've kept for almost 100 years
and I just can't keep doing it.
So is Adam.
Henry helps out sometimes.
It was 1920 something and I had a gig in a silent film as a
monster. After we wrapped, the director said I could keep the
costume. I didn't know what to do with it so I offered it to
Adam. Then he told me he'd buy me a sarsaparilla if I put it
on. He thought it would be funny. We were out in the woods
so I didn't think it would amount to anything. So I put it
on. Walked around a little. Next thing I knew everyone was
talking about some apeman. And tourists were descending.
economy boomed. Adam decided we couldn't stop...
Then Henry heard about it, got excited, took the costume, and started
making appearances all over the U.S., too! In 1967 it was
my turn and
someone got video of me and then things really heated up.
Conventions started up. (Just stopped by one in OH.) I mean
were we supposed to let all these people down?
But I need out, Tess. My skin's breaking out. I think I've
become allergic to the suit.

Beth; C.J., JenniAnn, Monica
Subject line: The boys
I know you're distressed about Adam, Andrew, and Henry getting sent to
the Netherworld to pick up trash along the road side as punishment for
their little apeman charade. I'm not happy about it,
either. Or the fact that the Netherworld is filled with road side
trash... (I told the Angel of Angels we should NOT have built a
five lane highway there. What did he think was going to happen!?)
But let's turn those frowns upside down. You ladies need
something to perk you up.
Who's up for a Real Housewives of
Atlanta marathon at my place? Then maybe some Jersey Shore? I do so love

So at what point do you think
they figured out this was an April Fool's
joke and not really the Dyelanders?

Maybe with Yva's email.
I definitely hope they did by Catherine's.
I wish the joke wasn't so
short this time but, ya know, got inspired
for something else about halfway through so had to curtail this.
Ya know, the story about
Andrew's shorts! :-)

Yes, the shorts story...
