My nominations.  Reply with quote  

for the compound staff:

a Messiah/Minister of Impending Doom - Kurt. I just think he'd be dandy giving us all the important doom-like updates.

a Compund Den Mother - SaraLeigh, because - well - I refuse to give up the Diva position. (I'm such a brat)

a Grand High Poobah of Recreational Therapy - Timmy, cause he might kill us otherwise. Or cry. I'm not sure which would be worse.

one "Bible" thumper (subtitute any CM book for "Bible") - Lib. She's the ultimate fan girl.

Someone who can Spell - Lauren cause she spells reel gud.

one Principled Pragmatist - mister (you know why)

no less than three Hippie-chick-aspects of Fate - Lara, Smartnfunny, and Jo. They're hip enough to pull this off with aplomb. I'd be pretty content adding Deb and Jillybeans here, too.

one Chef/Secretary of Defense - Thinkinsane. He tosses lunatics around for a living. He'd be swell at defending our compound.

One Foreign Ambassador - Unc. He's in France. That counts as foreign enough.

Knight Protector of the Funny - FattyFattyPorkFace. With a name like that, how can we go wrong?

several Marauding Minstrels - Katie, Robb, and Dave S (I believe) would all do really well here.

one conscientous objector/Muhammad Ali - Becky? You up for this? I'm not sure where else to put you. You get to beat shit up a lot. That's definitely a plus.

someone with a good Jack Pallance impression - And I'm drawing a blank here. I mean, we've got two actors among us, but I'm not sure how talented Argonaut and Q are in the Jack Palance department.

one Diva of Decadence - Yeah, thaz me baby. I'm am THE ultimate Diva. At least, that's what I tell myself to sleep at night.

one Refined Gentleman - Ferrit Leggings. He crosses me as the type.

one Misantrhopic Medic - Hrmm. Any doctors or nurses in the bunch? No? John's the closest we've got then. He WORKS in a hospital. That's enough, right?

*****

We need a few more positions, mister. Tal and Alan need jobs. Not to mention Dave, Katy O, and earthshoes. Get cracking.

I'm touched that I've been one of the chosen, since I just discovered CM this spring. I can't believe I've reached such an exalted status so quickly (and to think my ex-mother-in-law thought I'd never amount too much).

furthermore:

one Groundskeeper Willy
a Puck Bunny - the fairy kind, not the hockey kind-
Special Agent In Charge of Fire and Pinatas
a Greeter
an Interior Desecrator/Martha Stewar
someone who can identify with Run DMC AND Christian Scientists
a Patron Saint of Exaggerated Agriculture
one Choreo-animator
someone with Panache (since that's close enough to Pallance for me)
one Sinister Carny
one Dexter Riddler
someone to wear all the overalls
someone who knows what they're doing
one Canadian Junkie
One Tibetan boozehound "Fear the swarthy!"
Frank Lloyd Wright
one Disembodied Brain-- complete with jar of brain pudding
a Winged Walrus
a carpenter. Barring that, Jesus.


Now that I've suggested that we might need Jesus to join us in our compound, I can safely shut my trap and never open it again.

I am sitting here with a grateful tear in my eye, Hillary for the inclusion and I want to say as a hippie chick, since I do remember the 60s and took my SATs in 1968 I'd be proud and honored to act as a backup.

Did you remember to include in that list of jobs you might just need a
psychopharmocologist that was deft with peashooters and swords to shoot meds with a chaser of pizza into the gaping beaks of the inmates. Oh wait a minute ... that was an apothecary ... wasn't it? Laughing

Hey!  Reply with quote  

I want to join the compound too! I kind of need a job right now and I think I'd make a great Special Agent In Charge of Fire and Pinatas. I like fire and I know how to make Pinatas with balloons and papier-mâché. To whom do I address my resume for this position? I've got a stack of em right here.

I also play a mean Kazoo. Maybe I could double as a Minstrel?

I was 9 in 1969...I don't even remember wearing bell-bottoms or tie-die. But thanks for the inclusion. Can I just be the "Compound Layabout"? My dream job would be to sit around and read. Maybe once in a while I can read aloud to you guys...I'm not promising that, mind you, just hinting at the possibility so you'll hire me.

This compound is situated in a tropical locale, right? I am not living with all of you freaks unless there is SOME kind of payoff!

Alright! Let's get cracking (chest cracking, that is)!

I need 60 cc of 45% ethanol in lactated ringers, STAT! Preferably mixed with some liquid soaked and carbonated with cinchona bark and some frozen di-hydrogen oxide.

Don't worry, I'll be drinking this while wearing my "Down With People" t-shirt to fulfill my misanthropic obligations.



Also, I think we should nominate Sutu for the job of disembodied psychic presence at the compound.
