There is little better than a well-planned party complete with beautiful people and fine wine, or a ride in a brand new automobile with flawless leather interior, or a night of hot, passionate, slightly kinky... well, you get the idea, I am certain. Anyhow, there is very little that delights me more than these things. Except for...
..doing what I do best, of course. (..all right, what I do second best.)
After long months in seclusion, with barely anyone but Charleston to keep me company (not counting the party and the dancing, of course), the chains of nothingness have been cast from my soul, and I am free to slaughter and murder once more! Within legality, I mean. That darling, wonderful, handsome, delightful, amazing, fantastic, marvelous, precious, dear, dear fellow Sigurd Harcourt has invited me to go along with him on population control. Oh, gracious, how do I say these things without sounding like a bloodthirsty killer? We will be cutting down on the populace of life-threatening monsters, just the two of us. It gets rather dangerous for the railway workers if there are man-eaters about; as I understand it, some have begun disappearing anyhow? I should hope no one dares to tell us that we cannot go out there, else I will be forced to add yet an innocent life to my sterling repertoire. And that would just be unfortunate.
I cannot wait for him to get back in touch with me. If we left today, even, I would be willing to go. My medication makes me itchy when I can't move around..
Which brings me to my next point. Daatu? Would you be willing to house-sit for me while I am away? It should not be difficult, requiring no cleaning or anything of the sort, and I would pay you for your work. Just watch Charleston, feed him, give him a little attention, and make sure everything is all right. He eats twice a day and has a rather strict diet, so I will leave special instructions telling you what to feed him. Oh. And please don't go snooping around. I haven't much to hide, but there are things in my home that are very personal and meaningful to me which I would rather you not see until I decide to show you. You're a good girl, though, aren't you?
