My dog ate it?

Rarrgh!! That’s the noise a stressed Penny makes. Life, work and everything have been conspiring to keep me mega-busy and mega-worn-out this week, so apologies for the quietness. Believe me, I would much rather be having fun here!

Hopefully things will settle down again soon and allow me to attend to naughty online stuff. For right now, though, I figure it might amuse if I explain my absence through the medium of the lame excuse (as practiced by schoolgirls everywhere). A little stream of consciousness writing, if you will :)

Okay. I haven’t posted anything lately because...

...well, I was going to, but late one night a unicorn tapped on my bedroom window and when I opened it she said I had to help her cos a nasty witch was going to destroy Neigh-Neigh Land (which is where the unicorns live). I grabbed my best cardigan and climbed out of the window and onto the unicorn (who was called Princess) and we flew away over the houses and the fields and the sea and we got quite near to Neigh-Neigh Land but a dragon suddenly appeared out of the water and said it wanted to eat us so we had to take the long way which was via the north pole. Really cold! I was very glad I had my cardigan.

It took all night and all day to get to Neigh-Neigh Land but when we arrived I was introduced to all the unicorns including the chief who was blue and called Sparkle. She said that the witch lived in a mountain and that only a girl called Penny could stop her because Penny is a magic name. It was late so we all slept and the next day I was given a flower necklace and a magic amulet and a stick and I had to go to the mountain all by myself and find the witch’s lair and it was very far and very steep and I snagged my dress on the rocks once or twice but I made it.

When I reached the top of the mountain the witch appeared and said she would eat me all up but when I said my name was Penny she hopped on her broomstick and flew away from Neigh-Neigh Land. It was a long way back to the unicorn village but when I got there they were all very happy that they were safe and threw a party and I ate lots of cake and learned a new dance.

When the party was over I said I had to get back to my friends so Princess flew me home (via the north pole to avoid dragons) which took a very long time but we made it and I gave her a kiss goodbye and stroked her nose.

And here I am!

  1. A good excuse but I still believe you should get a proper spanking for making such a whopper

  3. Thank you Penny, you may stand , that's right, immediately, make your way to the nearest wall, hands on your head, nose touching, and stay. Anyone else fancy joining Miss Hasler? No good.

  5. I, for one, am proud of you, Penny. Anyone who would punish a girl for heroism and kindness to unicorns is just plain selfish. Not that I like your absence any more than they do. I'm just glad you came back home. Rumor is, had you stayed, Sparkle and the other unicorns were going to make you the new chief of Neigh-Neigh Land, and then we'd be without you forever. :-(

  8. Oh, so THAT was the witch at night. I thought it was some *ahem* koalas. Yeah, the north pole is really not the quickest route... but the dragon in the water refuses to move to a new lake! The north pole route's scenic though... but it was night time, so I don't think you got to see the sights... I'm glad you got your best cardigan with you :D

    2. And man, those koalas! Don't they ever take a day (or night) off? I think I might have to invest in some earplugs.
