Cynthia walks into the office. Marcy is at the computer. She’s deleting the entire blog.
Cynthia (screaming): Marcy! Stop! Stop! Stop!
Marcy: I’m sick of this. I’m bored. I’ve been telling you for over a year to update Marcy Very Much.
Cynthia: But I like Blogspot. It’s easy. And girly. And… easy.
Marcy: You’ve got to take a chance. Poop outside the box once in a while.
Marcy continues deleting with abandon.
Cynthia: Argghhhhhh…. I’m scared. WordPress is daunting.
Marcy: So what. You’ll learn it. Plus, we’ll have a grid setup and hot pink accents and it will look so fab and mod!
Penelope Kitten rushes around in a panic.
penelope kitten: i wanna come.
Cynthia: Of course you’re coming with us.
penelope kitten: marcy says no.
Marcy: She’s not coming. No way.
penelope kitten (wailing): i don’t wanna be left behind.
Cynthia: Penelope. Chill out. You’re coming with us no matter what. Now let’s see what Marcy has set up for us over at WordPress.
Marcy: Oh. Ummm… Yeah… so I haven’t gotten that far. Give me a few weeks days. I’m still trying to figure out the password issue.
Cynthia looks stricken.
penelope kitten: i’ll call my friend. he’ll help.
Penelope Kitten texts Business Cat.
penelope kitten: business cat says no prob. he’ll have us up by monday.
*See you all on Monday (or maybe Tuesday) for the launch of our blog redesign!
|Cynthia Celebrating Towel Day
Cynthia: Happy Towel Day, Marcy. Have ya got your towel?
Marcy (panicking): What?
Cynthia: Don’t Panic. It’s only Towel Day. May 25th is the day we honor the funny and brilliant Douglas Adams who wrote a science fiction trilogy (in five parts) called, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the GalaxySo – ya got your towel?
Marcy (still panicking): Why?
Cynthia: It’s the most useful item in the universe. Especially for us inter-galactic hitchhikers. C’mon. Let’s go.
Marcy (panicking even more): Where?
Cynthia: The Restaurant at the End of the Universeof course. I want to help Marvin, the Paranoid Android, valet park some spaceships. And, possibly have a cup of tea. Then we’ll go say hi for a few years to the Ruler of the Universe and his cat, The Lord.
Cynthia: You didn’t know that The Ruler of the Universe has a cat? And that he’s named, The Lord?
Cynthia: Hmmm….well, even The Ruler’s not sure if his cat exists.
Marcy: You’ve lost your mind. Marcy starts yelling. Help!
Cynthia throws Marcy a towel. Marcy suddenly calms down and feels confident.
Cynthia: Hey! Maybe we’ll run into Trillian. Our fashion crush, Zooey Deschanel, played her in the movie version of the book. Obviously, I’ll need a super cute Jumpsuit

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
Cynthia: And maybe we’ll see Zaphod Beeblebrox, and Ford Prefect, and Arthur Dent! They’re a little nuts, but super cute.
|Still from The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy|
Cynthia: We have to be careful of the Vogons though. They’re mean.
Marcy: It’s okay. I’ve got my towel now. I can handle it.
Cynthia: Goodbye, Earth!
Marcy and Cynthia exit Earth by hitchhiking a ride on the nearest spaceship.
