Mission Summary

The Nightmare Before Christmas In July (In August)

ween o ween like a wild scul bean
get funky with summerous spirits unseen
so saith Pastry Queen!

It was a small and late-rising mission (relative to its planned early launch). Commemorative badges got made at the last minute, and a gift box of orangey things came to us from Pecan. Thanks Pecan!

Launching with eXceSs' able navigation (and orange ship), we flew through Harvard Constellation and yelled a random selection of inappropriate seasonal greetings. We arrived at that one playground with the footswings and kettlebell raise things. There we carved tiny punkins with weird faces and illuminated their inner workings with sparkle stix, had some cookies and beverages, and triggered ornamental radiation displays to wash off the punkin guts.
Red 40 had some kinda mechanical with a busted valve and a locking axle (?!) that Snow fixed but then they peeled off. There was show and tell but I missed it because I was shining a light on that ding blag axle.

Perseids galore streaked by above us but all we saw was high radiation haze and some jupiters.

We went to the wooden skyfort, that's across the Mystic radiation band from Grackle, and there we dance partied to the gothick sounds of PQ's playlist. I did belated show-and-tell with some unidentified orange minerals that I received by mistake from an Ebay seller. Sparrow (& familiar Rascal) was knighted, then we practiced the SCUL march. Snow came back! We affectionately traded space war stories about insulting remarks we have made and received in the course of SCUL operations.

Then we flew casual home by way of Assembly Constellation, underflying the giraffe per protocol and exciting the interest of the many foods active at this early hour, and arrived back at the fort in good order to declare mission success.

Chic to Gritty for her pretty princess skirts, Grimlocke for her Monsters Inc monstrosity (and awesome sound effect skirt!!), Sparrow for her Jack Skellington digs, and PQ for Tank Grrl!
