This thread will contain the contest instructions, the entries and the results for the fourth week of Doodles. Each new contest will be linked from the second post of the general Sticky thread. This week 4 thread will be used Monday 20th through Friday 24th December 2010.

This entry thread will be mercilessly bilged of anything that isn't an entry.

20 December - Manic Monday!

Contest opens now! Contest will finish at midnight in about 24 hours' time.

Today's task is to tell me about the frantic and varied day you've had leading up to posting this doodle. It's been an amazingly eventful day, I think you'll find. You need to present your day as a series of alternating "Good News / Bad News" events.

An example of structure (but not of plot…):
Good News: It's time for another week of Doodles to start.
Bad News: I've lost my list of Doodles.
Good News: I can base one on a random headline from a newspaper.
Bad News: I threw the newspaper out.
Good News: Recycling is beneficial for the planet.
Bad News: It's too late; we're doomed.
Good News: Robert Smith from The Cure came round to breakfast and invented a sustainable clean energy source while waiting for the ketchup to pour from the bottle. He's going to call it "tomato source".


You can start with either good or bad; you can finish with either good or bad; it's up to you how many iterations of good and bad news you include in your story. You do need to finish the story with posting the doodle - although this needn't be good news! You have a maximum of 300 words to tell this tale, including the "good news" and "bad news" labels. Don't feel constrained by fact - feel free to make up as much of your Manic Monday as you wish!

Your entry post should include your pirate name and your ocean. Then type in the tale of your Manic Monday in plain text in the post. Remember to press "Reply to this post" instead of "Post new thread"!

As a reminder, please read the general rules before posting.

Go Doodle!

bad news: I feel like I've forgotten my son and have a small anxiety attack on the way in to the office, even though it's ok, he's not supposed to go today and he's perfectly fine and safe with his father but I hope they remember the heavy jacket today because it's freakin' cold out and oh, what if he even forgets he has the kid and leaves him someplace?
good news: Arrive at work without becoming (more) neurotic
bad news: Ewww. There's work to do.

bad news: What chocolate? I didn't see any chocolates. Hey, where's that coffee guy?!
good news: No one's looking. Log onto YPP to stalk an OM.

Aethera, Cobalt

Good news: I went to bed early last night!
Bad news: I'm still not happy about my alarm going off at 6:30.
Good news: The cold air wakes me up fast! (The boyfriend keeps it set to 62F at night)
Bad news: The cold air...wakes me up fast.
Good news: Hot shower!
Bad news: Cold towels. I spend 5 minutes shivering and missing our old apartment that had the washer/dryer in the bathroom.

Good news: I get to name-drop the president in my doodle entry.
Bad news: Apollo wrote Obama asking for a free trip to Hawaii, since he is the sun god and there's a lot of nice beaches there, and never got a response.
Good news: There are no riots at Waikiki Beach since people are not trying to get close to Apollo's perfectly sculpted...sand castle.
Bad news: Apollo is still mad at Obama, and thus not impressed by my name-dropping.
Good news: I am ending this doodle before I start a political fight. I hope.

Bad News: Woke up this morning - Ouch, the stitches hurt, while getting out of bed.
Good News: Mom comes fussing with painkillers and some much needed TLC.
Bad News: Area around plaster-protecting-stitches itches like crazy - tries hard to refrain from scratching.
Good News: Seeing surgeon at 2pm for post-op check-up to remove plaster - whoever said patience is a virtue needs to be skewered!
Bad News: Argues with mom during breakfast over plan for slumber party with friends - Reason: Still not fit for a party. Result: Mom drives me batty.
Good News: Mom calms down enough to listen to my side of argument. (I swear I love her to bits though.)
Bad News: No green light, but she agrees to mull over idea. Uh oh.
Good News: Friends called to alter plans to Friday noon pillow talk session instead - sigh of relief.
Bad News: Have not washed hair for 3 days - absolutely forbidden by Mom to wash hair for few days after surgery cause of silly (not scientifically-proven) Chinese superstition; scratches itchy scalp fervently.
Good News: Mom agreed to allow me wash my hair after my surgeon appointment - LIKE AWESOME!!11!!!!111!
Bad News: Arrived 30 minutes late for my appointment; lots of people waiting for the doctor.
Good News: Doctor walked in from his lunch break just as I sat down in waiting room, sees me and calls me in first.
Bad News: All other waiting patients shoot daggers from their eyes - at me; walks twitchily towards doctor's office.
Good News: Half hour later, I'm home. RUNS straight to bathroom, washes hair - ahhhhh, blisssssssss.................
Bad News: Barnacle!11!!!1!! The stitches are still itching !%@#$%&* - when is it going to stop?!
Good News: Logs on to forums, sees Monday's doodle, grins and clicks Reply to this Post.



Edits: Fixed punctuation. (Woah, woke up this morning to see all my punctuations in my entry missing and screwed up. !%@#$%&* I hope this doesn't void my entry)

Budclare, Malachite

Good News: I woke up to find that my pirate still has no nose.
Bad News: My sinuses are itchy anyway.
Good News: I found some piratey claritin*.
Bad News: It cost ten dubs and a used sloop. (Stay away from that apothecary. I'm serious.)
Good News: No more itching!
Bad News: Those dubs were supposed to be used to buy a turkey for Christmas dinner.
Good News: I found a wild turkey roaming around Buyan's Vortice.
Bad News: After following it into the underbrush, I discovered that it wasn't a turkey after all. It was a chicken. A devil chicken. Yes, that one.
Good News: It only tried to peck my nose off. Haha, sucker!
Bad News: I think it followed me home. I swear something's been stalking me around Salt. I hear quiet clucks everywhere I go. I'm afraid to go to sleep tonight. Help?
Good News: I remembered that all evil things fear Apollo's wrath, so I made an offering in the form of a doodle entry.
Bad News: I'm now starting to wonder where Apollo's sympathies really lie.**

*generic, of course. It's piratey.
**I apologize for the pun. I honestly didn't plan it.

Bad news: The temptation to eat all the biscuits at once is starting to creep in.
Good news: There's a new doodle to keep me distracted from eating all the biscuits at once.
Bad news: Re-reading entry and want to eat all the biscuits.

Good news:
I wasn't tired when I woke up today :)
Bad news:
I woke up today at 11:00 AM :(
Good news:
One of my two brothers left the seat down
Bad news:
They never lifted it when they went >_> (if you're female and have brothers.. you might understand)
Good news:
Finals are overrrrrrrrrr ;D No heavy homework hereafter
Bad news:
AP Bio isn't. :( And I don't even know if you guys noticed my alliteration.
Good news:
My computer isn't laggy, so I found the doodle & launched YPP as soon as I got on. :)
Bad news:
I still haven't seen a Lucky Dip OM on Malachite :(
Good news:
The doodle today is great! I got started right away.
Bad news:
<back to YPP browser> I got distracted and remembered last night's poker fail. Goodbye present money :(
Good news:
My Carp somehow went up to full legendary! :D
Bad news:
In my efforts to raise my Sailing, I went on a navy mission, but there was only one league left, so now it's back down to master.
Good news:
I returned to this page to continue typing my doodle, and in my opinion, what I've written so far doesn't suck. (High praise considering my self-esteem)
Bad news: It's not excellent, eye-catching, laugh out loud. Neither is my life. <emo moment>
Good news:
I can end this now before embarassing myself further ;) Yay. And, I actually stuck to the truth.
Bad news:
From now on I'll probably keep thinking of my life in good news-bad news terms. >_<

Good news: That PVP ship isn't following us any more.
Bad news: Pony Latitudes? I've never heard of that arch.

Good news: A jobber just won a white parrot. He named it Al. Al B. Tross.
Bad news: I'm really, REALLY jealous.

Good news: He let me wear the parrot for a while.
Bad news: I trashed it out of spite.

Good news: We made it out of the Pony Latitudes...
Bad news: ...and right into the fog of the Cursed Isles.

Good news: No cultist ships. Not a ship in sight, in fact.
Bad news: We're out of rum!

Good news: We can see snakes in the water. We'd all have one if we jumped in.
Bad news: We can't jump in, because the water is on fire.

Good news: We just caught the Widow Queen!
Bad news: But she's already swordfighting against...Barnabus?

Good news: She beat Barnabus.
Bad news: And now she's going to beat us.

Good news: No, she disappeared without a fight.
Bad news: My jobbers are all bailing on me.

Good news: At least I won't have to split the booty.
Bad news: I have to get this ship to port by myself.

Good news: Those snakes sure are pretty.
Bad news: I'm ZZZing at the helm!

Good news: At least the stations are manned...
Bad news: ...by Phantasms.

Good news: I can hear two OMs talking.
Bad news: They're talking about the parrot I trashed.

Good news: Up ahead, is this indeed the Alpha Dock I see?
Bad news: The ship is sinking!

Good news: I made it to shore in one piece.
Bad news: I have this uncontrollable urge to tell someone about it.

Good news: There's a party at this inn.
Bad news: Wanna hear about the time I trashed a parrot?

Herowena of Midnight

Bad news: Eerie noises and flashing lights woke me too early.
Good news: Space pirates, enamored by my mad Y!PP skillz, arrived to take me to their home planet and make me their queen.
Bad news: None of them looked like Han Solo.
Good news: None of them looked like Ewoks, either.
Bad news: They stared at me woodenly when I cracked the Ewok joke.
Good news: They also stared woodenly when my dogs lifted their legs on the ship.
Bad news: Space pirate technology is not impervious to dog... liquid.
Good news: Space pirates have that MacGyver spirit.
Bad news: They used up most of my stash of doodle supplies making repairs.
Good news: They left the modeling clay.
Bad news: Space pirate queens don't have time to doodle with modeling clay.
Good news: The space pirates accepted my "no thanks" without rancor.
Bad news: They (sniff) could have looked at least a little bit crushed.

Bad news: I hardly ever have possession of a Bravery Badge.
Good News: I do at the moment, and today I went into Atlantis.
Bad News: We sank. x.x
