Aaand the correct answer for yesterday's extremely hard quiz is: Orlando, Karl, Orlando, Beth/Karl, Orlando, Sean, Karl, Karl. I think :).

And since you're all pretty awesome at guessing, I ask you all to continue the following list (brought to you by the questionable prompts of a BFF who clearly had too much sun), so we have 9+8 things on August, 9th :).

Nine things that happen over the course of August, 9th:

1 - In Wuppertal, Germany, Craig has to share the monorail with about 5000 Japanese tourists. He was just trying to get from his parents’ house to the next Edeka; he has no idea what they/i> are doing there.

2 - Somewhere else in Germany, Orlando and Karl stop at a petrol station for a pee break. Karl then hovers close to Orlando’s motorbike, looking like a shifty thug who robs people for a living (or for fun) until Orlando gives him a Euro to buy himself a Mars bar.

3 - In a hotel, nestled close to the impressive mountains of Meteora, Eric dreams that Viggo decided that from this day on, he will only enter and leave Arnor house the way the monks did it in Vaarlam monastery. It’s not a particularly good dream. People, Eric thinks, should not be let down from great heights in nets. Especially when people equals Viggo.

4 - Somewhere in Italy, on a very family friendly beach, Cate’s eldest decides that he is the sole ruler of the airmattress that is shaped like a water melon slice and very pointedly shoves his siblings into the sea. Cate pretends she is asleep on her sunbed.

5 - In Wellesley Hall, Sean spends a rather rainy morning sorting through approximately 50 board games in the gaming room in the basement. His good work is somewhat hindered by three second formers who “help” by ripping out the boxes from the shelves and combining pieces from different sets to come up with new games.

6 - In Erebor Manor, Miranda learns that Marsters, the janitor, whom she has gotten to know pretty well over the last few weeks because Erebor Manor is pretty much a ruin, writes and publishes fantasy novels under a pseudonym. Sadly, she has not yet found out under which.

7 - In a monastery that has been build in the middle ages and lived in since then, Viggo has a very animated conversation about bulldozers with a monk. At least Eric thinks it is about bulldozers. He maybe shouldn’t have fallen asleep during the ‘Greek for Beginners’ tapes from the 1980s that Viggo made them listen to quite as often as he did.

8 - Somewhere else-else in Germany, at another petrol station (this time actually for petrol), Karl has to valiantly rescue Orlando who has gotten trapped in the very small aisle of the ARAL shop by a woman with a giant diaper bag and what Orlando calls ‘the world’s fucking ugliest baby’ while the woman is still within earshot. When Karl is on holiday with Orlando, he, Karl, is never called a rude disgusting horrible excuse of a human being. Karl loves going on holiday with Orlando.

9 - In Wellesley Hall, Sean has left the basement just for a quick snack. When he returns, the three aforementioned pupils have taken apart the ceiling lamp. The smallest of them is wearing the lampshade as a helmet as he defends himself against what Sean supposes is dragons. Sean decides he could go for another sarnie and closes the door again.

They did what to Wellesley Hall?

Go Orlando! Truth! Fear no Evil!
*cheers Marsters*

Sean goes and buys 2 more air matresses fot the rest of the kids:

this includes the telling of mythic, but certainly historically correct, tales re:unicorns and pegasoi ;)

Also, I've never even touched a washbasin *looks innocent, flaps wings and polishes halo* and Centurion is a good look!

Also the washbasin had noting to do with the cow's skull attached over the washroom door, that was just circumstantial!

Anyway we needed someplace to hang the used towels! *puppy eyes* *nodnod*

1) I was pretty sure that half the population of Japan and Korea is in the UK right now; clearly the other half is in Germany.
2. Don't tell Beth about the Mars bar. All those ' empty' calories...
3. Nightmare. Definitely not HSSE friendly
4. Wise, but then Cate is wise.
%. Short help is no help at all - ask Gandalf
6. Buffy fic?
7. NFV - normal for Viggo
8. Poor Orlando. All babies are ugly so this one must have been a real horror.
9. If the kids get left in school over the holidays they deserve to use the furnishings as battle armour

1. At least he doesn't have to share it with an elephant ;)

2. He didn't bring cash, either, did he? Just his playboy and a picture of Boris? (and tell me, do they skype? ;))

3. That sounds like Viggo alright (and I want to read about their day at the monasteries in detail!!!)

4. Cate has an amazing husband who lets her 'sleep' through all of this although he can see her blinking.

5. Munchkin Dungeons and Dragons? ;)

6. Family-friendly fantasy novels?

7. Who wouldn't have kept a cassette player if not Viggo? I bet he still has tapes someone made him back then in the good old days, too, a shoebox full under his bed and Eric keeps stubbing his toes on it.

8. Richard would laugh so hard at that, because definitely, while some babies are so cute that it's hard to take, others looks like weird ugly aliens. For professional reasons, Richard usually keeps his opinion to himself at work.

9. See? :) And, smart man, Sean.
