Training for the Pingu Olympics

beachparty2bs

The Pingu Olympics are approaching, but it’s too hot to train. The blazing daystar threatens to melt the whole support and fan camp, too, but fortunately the Drink Delivery Doggies excel at their job!

Some brave souls still practice challenging summer sports with amazing skill, precision and determination. Pingu Olympics are a serious matter, no sudden heat wave will disturb the training routine!

It’s also important to stay well hydrated and nourished, summery noms and personal bathing helper are a must for any pingathlete aiming for improvement.

With enough practice and stubborn sisu, even a pingu can learn to fly! …at least the few centimeters before the splash, but it still counts!

The Arcade is open again and provides hours of amusement if you’re fond of silly critters like I am. Each pingu comes with a piece of furniture, an effector, and they are scripted to interact with them, padding, hopping and flying all over between various pieces, just like piccoli do, which made them my must-have-them-all collection of this round.

Happy-Making Yool Kart Magic

“What is it?” The smallest bunling asked and sniffed the rectangular piece of cardboard curiously.

“‘s yule card!” The Bunling Who Knows Letters declared proudly.

“Yool-kart,” repeated the smallest bunling and nudged the cardboard up with his nose, then tilted his head as it fell over. “‘s all colourful on this side!”

“What does it do?” One of the squirrels picked the card easily up and held it on the side, then peered forward to try and see the colours better.

“It’s a picture!” The smallest bunling hopped up and down, then paused, tilted his head and took a few side hops to prevent tumbling down. “‘s upside down picture.”

The squirrel turned the card around and everyone gathered to look at it.

“I think they’re waving,” said the younger of the squirrel brothers and waved back at the card.

“He has a carrot-nose!” The smallest bunling kept on hopping up and down excitedly.

“He looks like he’s made of ice cream scoops.” Addler, the otter butler, nodded knowingly.

“The Ladybun said he’s a snow-man, ‘n the red person is a tonttu,” The Bunling Who Knows Letters pronounced with authority. “‘n that people give each other yule-cards to wish them happy festive yuletime! ‘s a trad-ishon.”

“Why doesn’t the snow melt?” The squirrel holding the card pressed his nose against the picture. “It’s not even cold!”

“‘s a picture, like a kamera-picture! ‘n doesn’t have to be snow-men, can be happy winter things of any sort.” The Bunling Who Knows Letters nodded for emphasis, ears flopping. “Then you give them to people and they are happy!”

“Happy-making yool-kart magic!” The smallest bunling turned to his wiser friends. “Let’s make some!”

“The Ladybun did say that Matshan has a big big tree on the Other Island, ‘n people bring all sort of treats and warm wishes under it.”

“We are people!” Addler declared after hearing the word ‘treats’. “Let’s bring wishes there, ‘n yool karts, ‘n see if the others have brought there noms. We could trade!”

A lengthy oooohhh-sound escaped the gathered critters: a fair trade of warm wishes for noms was a brilliant idea!

“I know a jackalope who could take pictures of us! So they can see us wishing well!” The Bunling Who Knows Letters started planning the process. “‘n then we can scribble yeys on the other side and and… someone needs to bake a cake and we need some lights and…”

The critters did manage to make some yool karts and they can be found in a small box under the tree in Selidor, free to take with their warm wishes. There will soon be much more gifts there as the traditional Giving Circle begins, the critters just got a bit over-excited and went over to sniff for possible treat trades early.
