*enters OOC mode*
My family has decided to go on vacation for the next few weeks. I know this is a very sudden announcement, and I can’t apologise enough, but this is very important to me, I’d like to spend the quality time with family I don’t get to see that often, and the break will be nice. I’m sorry that it doesn’t seem like I’ve been around that much lately, but once I get back I’ll be a lot more well-rested and bring many more ideas and energy to the table.
One of the ideas I’ve been thinking about is a weekly Friday night movie night.
On Once-ler’s end during the next few weeks, I’m thinking he’ll need a vacation after dealing with his family anyway, so imagine he’s off taking a break as well…
Thank you so much for your patience on this. You guys are fantastic and I don’t know where I’d be without you.
Tomorrow’s the big day. My family is coming over.
I won’t be online for the next few days because I really have to focus. I can’t mess this up, this is my one chance. I doubt I’ll ever be able to convince them to come back if they’re not impressed, and more than anything I want Mom to be proud of me.
So let’s do this. I’m ready.
"No it's not good i try but i don't got now talent like you or my boyfriend"-she said sadly-
I think you’ve got a lot of talent. I think you’re really creative, with an eye for design. What you lack in skill, you make up for with vision.
*sighes, stuffs my writing paper in bag* I don't wanna get paid by vacation, it won't feel right to me. I'll take the PR shopping offer and go out proudly wearing my thneed advertising and come up with ideas and tests on more uses of thneeds. I'll do anything to get far away from them.
That sounds great, Miss C. I like that idea!
I better. I've had a crap week, and I'm this close to killing someone, I don't care what you say.
…Tails. No. Just… no.
I will keep them away.
Of course! I'll go and wrap those thneeds. Also, please don't worry about the mat; I'll take care of it. You should try and get some rest.
That sounds great!
…I’ll try… thank you so much. I knew I could count on you…
Right. Well, better get ready for the family. (Closes garage door and starts boarding the door up)
Thank you. I’ll try and keep them out of your workspace while they’re here. My bros will be otherwise occupied, and I think I can keep the rest away. You’ll have peace and quiet…
*shrugs and writes down "i'm not talking cuz i'm afraid i'll sputter out on pranking your family or horrible nonsense, and just thought might as well not show up for work when you're parents come" on a piece of paper with bad doodles* :c
Miss C, they’re not here yet, so if you want to talk, you can.
And I was actually thinking about this for a while, but what if, for the next few days, you focus on PR work? I’ll pay you for going out shopping for a day wearing your thneed. Just, when you see an item that you know how to make using a thneed, you give that item a disgusted look and turn the thneed into that item. Show people what it can do. Amaze people shopping for spatulas that you’re wearing one. Shame people shopping in the hat section with your amazing sense of style.
If it rains and you walk around with a thneed umbrella, going in and out of stores while turning your thneed into and out of umbrella mode for amazed onlookers, I can even pay you extra.
What would you think about that? You wouldn’t have to be around my family at all. Just come back once they’re gone and tell me how many hours you’ve worked, and I’ll take your word on it.
Or if you want to, you can consider this a few days off. Or if you want a week off, I can give you a paid vacation. Or something. However you want this to work…
I'm not sure, but if you do want to do this, then it's fine.
I think you’re right, I should probably go to bed… my headache is getting a little bit worse.
How am I going to sleep knowing tomorrow is the da y? HOW?
Nothing...(Eyes shift back and forth suspisiously)
Um, okay… if you say so. If you ever want to talk, though, I’m here.
