Story Thirty One - Ended June 29th
Hello and welcome, I'm Guy Neopia and this is "Take a Walk in Your Blumaroo's Shoes!!!!"
[applause] Is your pet happy? Does it smile when you call its name? Does it wag its tail or flap its
wings or wiggle its fin when you're around? Well, on today's show we'll talk to owners and their pets
about what makes them jump for joy, but first in our studio today is Sueseea, a very sad looking
Lenny with unhealthy looking feathers. Sueseea, welcome to the show.... [applause] Please tell us your
Author :Neopets Staff|
Date : 25th June
..."Well Guy, thank you for having me on your show, I am so glad to be here... I'm sorry for being so ugly and
I don't want to scare the audience but I want to get the message across to the other hurt pets out there, about...
[Audience hushes down] being neglected. [Gasp from AUDIENCE] I know, I know, who would ever dream of hurting
a cute and cuddly Kiko, or an adorable, anxious to be loved Acara or a likeable, loveable Lenny? But some
owners feel like they need to be in power all the time, and others just don't care..." [SUESEEA collapses into
bitter, though stifled sobs] "Sueseea, we feel your pain, are you able to continue?" prompts Guy. "Yes, yes, I
suppose I can try... I just want
to let all of the Neopets out there know that they are wonderful, wonderful creatures, and not to let anyone tell
them differently. Even us Lennys. Oh just look at my feathers..." "Is there anything you wanted to say to owners
before we are out of time?" "Yes. Anyone out there who has a Neopet, you must remember, that is a privileged. If you
can no longer care for your Neopet, please put it up for adoption, so it can find a more stable home. They need
food to live, yes, but most of all, they need love..." [Applause from AUDIENCE and someone shouts: YOU GO GURL]
"Thank you so much, Sueseea, for joining us today, we'll be back after a short word from one of our sponsors..."
Date : 25th June
..."Tired of plain, ordinary omelettes?" A sad Shoyru, sitting in front of an omelette, nods. "Try our amazing
new Secret Saucey! Secret Saucey comes in tantalising random flavours such as Asparagus, Chia, Sludge, and even
Chocolate!" A bottle of Secret Saucey magically appears next to the omelette. The Shoyru pours some on, takes a
taste, and exclaims, "Mmm, Volcanic Rock Saucey, my favourite!" "Need more variety? Try some Secret Saucey today!"...
Date : 25th June
..."Are you a Hairless Chia and get made fun of? Are you a scaleless Flotsam and get picked on? Are you a kind Jetsam
and get teased, or are you a featherless Lenny that nobody likes? Well, this is the place for you: Take a Walk in
Your Blumaroo's Shoes Spa, Sauna, and Treatment Centre. Sponsored by Guy Neopia. Now back to the show." "Welcome back
to Take a Walk in Your Blumaroo's Shoes. Of course, I'm Guy Neopia, and now we have Olaot, a Kiko covered in hundreds of
plasters (Band-aids)... Olaot, all I have to say is OUCH, what the heck happened to you?"...

...*BLEEP* Lanah turned off the TV. "Oh, I hate that show! I don't know why everyone likes it! It's so boring!"
she exclaimed. "I wish I could have my own TV show, now that would be good!" She sat and daydreamed of what it would be
like. "It'd be called "Lanah Live: Celebrity Central"! And it would be exciting, and everyone would like it!" Lanah said
excitedly. She sat daydreaming for a long time until she heard a knock on her door. "Who is it?" No answer. "Who is it?"
Lanah asked again starting to get annoyed. No answer. "DID I STUTTER WHEN I ASKED WHO IS IT? TELL ME WHO YOU ARE!" "I can't
tell you! It's supposed to be a surprised!" someone said at the other side of the door. She walked to the door and opened it.
"AAAHHHHH! NOT YOU! AAAHHH!"...
Date : 26th June
..."That's right! It's me, Guy Neopia! I noticed you turned off your television in the middle of our show, what went wrong?"
"I hate it! It's boring, and utterly annoying! I have to sit through it every day just to watch my favourite show afterwards:
Lenny Trivia!" "You enjoy watching Lenny Trivia? Fascinating..." Guy made a note on a piece of paper, and ushered in the camera
crew. "W-What are you doing?" Lanah angrily yelled. "Oh, I'm just going to film a show in your NeoHome," Guy Neopia grinned as
he also ushered in the studio audience. "I'm sure you wouldn't mind!" "Mind!? I'm-" "You hear that Lennys and Grarrls? She's ecstatic!"
[The audience starts to clap for Lanah] "So Lanah, have you had any problems with your owner? It seemed that you were very stressed
when I was at the door!" Guy Neopia sat down in a chair, which was recently placed down by a stagehand, and another one was placed
next to him for Lanah. She sat down, fuming. "I was stressed because your show was about to end, and then you come and start to film
a show in MY NEOHOME!!!" "Well, obviously, it doesn't look like you get a lot of care... your fur is all out of place!" [audience boos]
Guy took more notes on his pad, and flipped a page, starting yet another paragraph of notes. Lanah took this time to inspect her tail.
"I look fine, thank you very much! My owner gives me all the hair-care I need to look like a beautiful Usul! I've won the beauty contest
a couple of times too..." "Yes, yes, go on! Fascinating stuff!" "Well," she laughed, remembering her first outfit. "I tried to dress-up
as a Usuki doll, Hawaiian Usuki... Needless to say, it didn't turn out too well! I tripped over my grass skirt, and my purple flower
kept falling in my eyes! I still won though..." [applause from the crowd] "Completely fascinating! Now, Lanah, give us the dirt on your
owner." The camera zoomed in on Lanah's face as she began to perspire...
Date : 26th June
..."W-w-well, um, you see, my owner isn't here at the moment. He, I mean, she, is at the market in Maraqua," Lanah muttered
nervously, sweat pouring down her face and matting her fur. "Oh, that's quite all right Lanah. We don't need to meet your
owner. Just tell us a little bit about her." "Well, Guy," begins Lanah a little angrily, "my personal life is none of your
business. Now would you and your dumb show please GET OUT OF MY NEOHOME!!!" [audience boos and hisses] "Hush, hush! No need
to get hostile! Now Lanah, I'm sensing some agitation. Has your owner been mistreating you?" "No, Guy, my owner has not been
mistreating me--as I told you before, she is shopping at the market in Maraqua. Now would you PUH-LEEZE get out of my house
before I miss the rest of Lenny Trivia?!?!?!" Suddenly an audience member calls out, "Gurl, you be lying! Your owner can't be at
the Maraqua market. It's been closed for a week since that tidal wave hit Maraqua." Everyone turned to the short Blumaroo
that had made the statement, and a deafening silence ensued. Finally Lanah gasped out, "Fine, fine! I'll tell you the
horrible truth! I have no owner!" [audience gasps]...

...CLICK! "Hey! I was watching that!" Janey yelled. Blackey rolled his eyes. "Lanah's World is such a boring show.
Who wants to know about an ownerless Usul?" he asked. CLICK! "Yes! Battledome Fights on TV. Much more interesting than what
you were watching, Janey." Janey made a grab for the remote, but Blackey jumped out of the way. Soon, Janey was chasing
Blackey all around the NeoHome. A few minutes later, Blackey ran head first into his owner's legs, making his owner fall
on her butt. "Ouch! Watch where you're going, Blackey!" Jackie cried. "Oops! Sorry," Blackey said, as he helped her up.
Janey slammed into Blackey and grabbed the remote with her mouth. Blackey immediately ran after her. "Energetic little
Lupes," Jackie whispered to herself. Jackie went into the kitchen to find something to eat. She could hear Janey and
Blackey bumping into things and yelling at each other in the living room. All of a sudden, the noises stopped. Jackie
went into the living room to see if anything was wrong. "Oh. My. God," Jackie gasped. Janey and Blackey had disappeared
into the TV...
Date : 27th June
...CLICK! "I HATE those TV shows that lead into other TV shows," said Bob. Bob was an owner without a Neopet. "Never
mind TV," Bob said. "I'm hungry. Maybe I'll go grab at free bite as a 'guest' for the Neolodge." Bob opened his front
door and a tiny Meerca darted in and out of his legs and then stopped, looking up at Bob. "Help, please!" Bob was too
hungry to be a good Neopian. "No, go away." "PLEASE! All you have to do is adopt me and say that you've been my owner
for several months now," pleaded the Meerca. "Fine, only if you go away afterwards!" Bob said. The Meerca let out a
little yelp and jumped into Bob's arms just as a crew of Neopet-Catchers arrived at Bob's door. "Is that your Meerca?"
asked an officer. Bob remembered the deal. "Yes, go away," he said. "How long as she been your Neopet?" asked the officer.
Too many questions! Bob thought. "Several months, go away please," Bob stated politely. "Has she been any
trouble?" asked the officer. "No, she hasn't!" whispered the Meerca. "No, she hasn't," Bob repeated to the officer. "Well,
if she's ever any trouble, call us. There's been some complaints of a mad Meerca running around eating all the leaves off
of the Money Tree." The officer handed over her business card and took the crew home. Bob put the Meerca down. "Thanks,
mister, I owe you one!" said the Meerca cheerfully. "Yeah, whatever, now leave me alone!" Bob said as the Meerca scurried away...

..."We'll be back to the classic movie, RUDE BOB'S FIRST NEOPET after a short break!!!" CLICK!!! Pattee sighed,
yawned, and stretched out on her Kau Print Sofa inside her cheery NeoHome. "Nothing is on TV and I'm getting tired of
flipping through the stations. Geez, will it ever stop raining?" she asked her beautiful yellow Uni, Mellow Yellow.
The Uni just folded her wings and let out a long, loud sigh. What's the matter with you, Mellow... too much TV, huh? I
hear ya, sister." Mellow Yellow glanced out the window and replied...
Date : 28th June
..."Yes, I suppose. Oh, the dawning of new day not yet to be wasted on the petty mourn of the television." "Whoa,"
Pattee answered. "Since when did you become so serious?" Mellow smiled weakly. "I just wish something exciting would
happen around here FOR a change. I AM getting awfully tired of watching Rude Bob..." but, before Mellow could
finish, The TV turned on by itself! They both jumped up, and an ugly looking Buzz was shown on the screen. "EXCITING?!?!?!"
he cried. "Ahh, yes I suppose something exciting SHOULD happen to you..." he mumbled a few nonsense words and in a puff
of silvery sparkled smoke, Mellow was gone! "Um, OKAY..." Pattee said, looking awfully astounded. "Hi Pattee! Pattee
save me! HELP!" It was Mellow! But where was she? Pattee spun around in circles, her eyes scanning the room. Finally
her gaze landed on the television, and Mellow was inside! Just then, she saw something appear behind mellow from the
shadows. "Mellow," she said quietly. "WATCH OUT! IT'S A COMMERCIAL!!!"...

...*FLIP* "Now we return to the 'Story of a Neopet'". "Oh Cybunny, I'm afraid I'm madly in love with you" *FLIP*
"We will return to 'Your Blue Bruce' after a short break!" *CLICK* "There is nothing on TV anymore," said Anna
sadly to her Mynci Fido. Fido just gave her a bored look and laid his head done upon her legs. "HEY FIDO I GOT AN IDEA!"
Fido perked his head up a little and gave a questioned look. "Let's go to the Money Tree and when we get something we
can go shopping!" "Anna! What a really great idea" exclaimed Fido. So off they went. As they were walking to the Money
Tree it became dark. "Anna...um...let's go back. It seems to scary over here and who knows what kind of weirdos are at
the Money Tree!" "Oh Fido! What kind of Mynci ARE you? All Myncis are brave!" Fido gulped and kept walking full of fear
all the way to the Money Tree. When they got there, there were many people all crowding around. The crowd was not looking
at the Money Tree, but at something else. Out of no where Fido had the urge to run about. He started barking for joy and
screaming that there was no better place then Space. Anna gave a curious look at Fido and then at the crowd. She ran to
the crowd and pushed her way through. Anna then saw GUY NEOPIA! "WHAT THE HECK?!" Guy stopped playing and all the Neopets
were scared, mad, or sad once again. Fido ran up next to Anna and started to shake with great fear. "Ah! Anna what a pleasure
to see you!" "H-h-how do you know my name?" "Anna, Anna, Anna...I am Guy Neopia I know everything, I know about Lenny,
that Usul, Petless Bob, those two energetic Lupes, Mellow Yellow Uni and of course your scardey-cat-Mynci!" "HEY I RESENT THAT!"
yelled Fido. "Uh-yah, anyway I am here to make all the pets happy. I started a while ago with that Lenny and soon I got to
see what most pets where like. I am know here to end the story just like I started it...I would like to say that all pets
look the same, but not at personality. Some are always happy, sad, mad, energetic, or depressed. Pets need to be loved
no matter what and never be abandoned! I'm Guy Neopia telling you to love your Neopets! Oh, and watch my show!!!"
