Me & My Muse – Day 972: One More Week to Fall Back On…

Effective today, it is official.  To those of you who love to sleep in, you have one more week to do so.  More realistically, one more day if you consider the work week (with the work week, the last day to sleep in is Saturday morning).  At 2:00 a.m. next Sunday morning, Daylight Savings Time begins. And that means one less hour of sleep and one additional hour of daylight.

This is all timed out nicely, considering that the First Day of Spring follows the week after that.  And with it being Palm Sunday on the same day, Easter Sunday will follow the week after.  With that in consideration, two more weeks of winter remain.

And what will I be doing today?  I will enjoy this day, and everything that it has to offer.  I have already gone to church this morning and went shopping.  The remainder of this day is still left.


Muse:  And there’s no time like the present to show you the secret hideout!  Let’s go!

But what if the Lethal Lady League is tracking us?

Muse:  All of their signals are scrambled.  They can’t track a thing right now.  I just placed stealth on you so no one can see us.  Let’s go!

Very well.  Lead on, Mighty Mistress!

Muse:  Hold on to my hand…

*holds on to Muse’s hand, and she begins flying at the speed of light*

Muse:  We’re there.

That fast?

Muse:  We kind of teleported after I entered light speed.  An extra measure for safety.

*Muse presses button, opening up a door*

Muse:  Here is the team.

Miss Muse:  Kyle! Mighty Muse!  It’s so nice to see you!

Pretty Penny:  Greetings, Kyle!  And it seems like my pricey gadgets have served you well, huh, Miss?

Muse:  They have.

Wonder Wing:  Oh, hey Kyle!  And Mighty Muse!  You’re safe!  Now let’s beat up that Lethal Lady League!  Your wish is my command!  Tee hee!

Cold Feet:  There’s no hope for them.  No hope at all.  Just leave me be.  I’ll just get in the way.

Miss Muse:  No hope for them.  Come on.  We’ll place you in the room with them.  They won’t stand a chance!

Praying Princess:  My prayers have been answered!  You’re both safe!  Now, let’s be careful and shrewd in handling our adversaries…

Seraphina:  Well advised, Praying Princess.  We should all deliberate and conceive a carefully crafted plan that would tactfully thwart the Lethal Lady League.  They are a force to be reckoned with, and we are not to underestimate their power or take them lightly…

Queen Cellulite:  You got that right, Seraph dear!  Let’s crush them all and devour them! There’s more than enough woman in this blimp to take them all on!  They’re all a bunch of puny pins, and I’ll bowl them all over!  Just say the word and I’ll do it!  Ha ha!

Seraphina:  We must not exercise undue haste, my rotund queen.  They may be a bunch of delinquent children with a formidable ringleader, but I wouldn’t underestimate what they can do as a team.

Muse:  Point validly taken, Seraphina.  We must devise a carefully crafted strategy to thwart them.

And how are we going to do that?

Marvelous Muses League:  With your help, of course!

My help?

Muse:  Of course, Kyle.  We need your “privileges” to stop them.

So you want me to do all the fighting, huh?

Miss Muse:  All the fighting?  I wouldn’t say that.  You’ll just be helping us achieve our plan…

Pretty Penny:  In fact, you’re our key asset…

Wonder Wing:  A super duper important key asset!  Tee hee!

Cold Feet:  With you helping us, there’s no hope for them!

Praying Princess:  So think about it, Kyle and make the right decision.  Aid us with your “privileges”.

Seraphina:  What you possess is an integral part of putting our plan into motion.  Without it, there’s no plan.

Queen Cellulite:  And with no plan, we can’t give them their just desserts!

I’ll help you.  Just tell me what this plan is all about.

Muse:  We certainly will, Kyle!  First of all, I would like to thank you.  Thank you for helping us…Helping us in the take down of the Marvelous Muses League!  Tee hee!


Pretty Penny:  Brilliant!  You should see your face!  It’s priceless!

Wonder Wing:  Tee hee!  Made ya look!  How could you fall for something like this?

Cold Feet:  Now there’s no hope for you!

Praying Princess: Do you really think we’re the Marvelous Muses League?  I don’t mean to deceive you, but we’re not.

How could you!

Seraphina:  We are all a cleverly constructed hologram devised by our leader, The Dark Damsel.  The REAL Marvelous Muses League are in captivity.

Queen Cellulite:  And now it’s time for the main course! Out with it, Tee Hee Girl!

Tee Hee Girl?

Muse: Fake holograms, deactivate!

*all the Marvelous Muses League holograms vanish*

Muse:  I find it amazing how gullible you are, Kyle.  Tee hee!

Gullible?  How would I have suspected you to be behind all of this?

Muse:  Well, it’s actually pretty easy.  All I had to do was embrace my new form! Tee hee!

*Muse flashes and becomes Tee Hee Girl*

New form?  What did you do to my Muse?

Tee Hee Girl:  Nothing!  Tee hee!  I AM your Muse!

No you’re not!  Explain how this happened!

Tee Hee Girl:  You’re it!  Tee hee!  I was just playing a nice game of tag.  Do you remember when Tee Hee Girl tagged me?

*enters flashback*

Muse:  Sounds good to me.

Tee Hee Girl:  Found you!  Tee hee!  You’re it!

*Tee Hee Girl tags my Muse and runs away, vanishing in a cloud of smoke*

*end flashback*

Tee Hee Girl:  Ever since she tagged me, I felt a yummy seed growing inside of me.  It was her, just eager to burst out!  And to be totally honest, she did that a month ago.  Tee hee!

So over time, she made you into another clone of herself by just tagging you?

Tee Hee Girl:  Yeah!  Isn’t it amazing?  Tee hee!

Then what about the ruse?  It seemed like you had no problem controlling my Muse.

Tee Hee Girl:  That was the easy part.  I was told to play pretend so I pretended to be your Muse!  Didn’t I do a good job, Kyle?  Tee hee!

Urrr…Give my Muse back!

Tee Hee Girl:  I AM your Muse!  Tee hee!

???:  Splendid job, Tee Hee Girl.  You can stop now.

Tee Hee Girl:  Thank you!  Tee hee!  Can I go watch cartoons now, Miss Dark Damsel?

Dark Damsel:  Not yet.  There’s one more part in the game.  Remember?

Tee Hee Girl!  Oh!  That’s right!  Tee hee!

Dark Damsel:  Getting you here was much easier than I thought.  Turning your Muse into my puppet made it much easier!

Shut up!

*I begin to punch the Dark Damsel, which she quickly dodges*

Dark Damsel:  Not very much of a gentleman, are you? Do you really want to punch a lady?

I will punch anything if it’s a monster like you!  Give me my Muse back!

Dark Damsel:  Temper temper…Now I have an even better suggestion.  Why don’t you give me your “privileges”?  My plan to wipe out the Marvelous Muses League depends on them!  Wasn’t that exchange fun?  I wrote the whole thing myself!

You are a cruel wretched witch!

Dark Damsel:  Thank you.  You know, I try really hard and that’s what I was going for.  Now, give me your “privileges”!

You mean these?  How about I use them to escape instead?  Muse,  you’re free from Tee Hee Girl.  Master’s Privileges, engage!

*teleports with Muse out of Lethal Lady League Lair*

There.  We’re safe.

Muse:  What happened?  The last thing that I remembered was being tagged by a little girl…

She must have done something with your memories.  How do you feel?

Muse:  I feel alright.  Now what happened?

We were in the Lethal Lady League Lair.  Somehow, you were brainwashed by Tee Hee Girl to do the Dark Damsel’s bidding.  Instead of leading them to a hideout, you led them to her lair.  You also led me there, and she wanted my “privileges”.  Fortunately, we escaped.

Muse:  We need to regroup.  If all of the Marvelous Muses League is captured, I’m the only one left.  With that being the case, your “privileges” are all the more important.  We might need to use them to make a new league!

We need to discuss this later.  I have to go find Remedy and tell him.  Do you know why the Dark Damsel wants my privileges so bad?

Muse:  Well…ugh…My head hurts.  I can’t remember.  I’ll let you know if I can, okay?

Maybe we can use Remedy to probe your hidden thoughts.

Muse:  Or maybe we could use your “privileges”.  That’s an idea.

I’ll look for Remedy first.  Hopefully, I’ll find him soon.

Muse:  All right.  My head hurts so I’m going to rest, okay?

Go ahead.  It might make your head feel better.

Muse:  I hope so.  Bye Kyle!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

I knew that I should’ve trusted my intuition.  Something was going on with my Muse, but at least she’s free from the spell now.  I will look for Remedy, but I’ll save that for another day.

Today’s high is going to be 38 degrees and the silver lining is having one more week of standard time.

To those of you who like having the extra hour to rest, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I wish that extra hour could stay.  I really need it on a day like today…My head…*snore*
