Share Your World – Week 156

Just another boring day in the life of Evil Squirrel.

For our final SYW critter profile, we’ll feature the (cough, hack) brains behind the whole operation, Mr. Evil Squirrel.  ES actually wasn’t seen at all in early SCT skits, not finally appearing until Episode 20, and it’s only been in the last couple of years that The Nest’s CEO has gotten regular face time on his own blog.  Much of that has to do with the fact that he’s the flip side of the Buster doll that is much more wildly popular due to his chronic deaths making it impossible for the two to share a skit.  But thanks to our high budget special effects technology at The Nest, the two did appear on the same stage once

Stand back! I don’t want you to end up killing us both!

Like many other squirrels of great power, ES rules over his peasants with an iron paw, forcing the other critters to work on SCT for little or no compensation and threatening to donate any troublemakers to Goodwill.  ES’s constant meddling with DJ Scratchy’s Monday muzak feature has shown there is at least one critter who can get away with sassing the boss…

Always remember to be kind to those who play the earworms.

And our final suggested SYW question, themes around Evil Squirrel…

If you had an alter ego, who would it be?  Describe some fun or interesting things about them!

And now for this week’s Share Your World questions, the final ones of the year!  As you can see, this is my 156th week playing along with SYW… and if you can do math without having to whip out your phone, that divides into 52 three times evenly, which makes sense since my first answers came in the first full week of January 2019.

This week’s New Years themed questions, as always, by Melanie

Nothing like spending New Years Eve on Uranus…

At 12 a.m. on December 31st/Jan 1st, what will you be doing?

Well, hopefully not decomposing somewhere.  I mean, you never know….

Forget the ball drop… the possum drop is so much cooler!

Thanks to gaining Fridays off with my new schedule back in March, I do know I won’t be at Mecca this year.  After thinking I was going to get shafted by leap year, I’ll get two straight New Years Eve nights off anyway!

Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve?

I miss the good old days when the radio stations used to count down the best songs of the year on NYE.  That was one of my old favorite traditions.  Going back to at least 1983, from which point I can account for every December 31st since then, I’ve always been awake at midnight…. whether at home or work (and I don’t think they’d let me sleep at work).

You won’t sleep so soundly once the war zone starts up outside…

Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better?

Let me consult my astrologer…

Ooooh! Like, do you totally want to play a game of strip Tarot?

Madame Mitzi doesn’t seem to be able to tell me the winning numbers in the next Powerball drawing.  So it’s just gonna be another year…

What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021?

I learned what cellulitis is, and that it completely sucks….

You should have healthy skin like me!

Describe in 1-3 words how you feel going into 2022

This comic goes out to all my Mecca newbie brethren, who now make almost as much as I do despite still not doing a damned thing…

  1. And the year comes to an end with Buster getting a good head-whacking which is – I suppose – marginally better than being killed off…….again…… Happy New Year!

    Pam (and Teddy too)

    Happy New Year! Wouldn’t it be nice if we could molt into a new skin for 2022?

  3. Thanks E.S. for Sharing Your World and a LOT of great questions for it as well! Now because I’m a bit dim from time to time, is this actually your LAST (no more in the coming years) question from the Nest? Or just for this year? Blame the bubbly for my state of mind.. 😉 Good for you for getting some rest on NYE, instead of being at work, possibly contracting something because of the on-slaught of Mecca patrons who simply must go shopping ten minutes after midnight, tomorrow night! (I understand you don’t work WITH the public directly, but don’t those drunken slobs wandering up and down the aisles TOUCH a lot of stuff? ) Stay safe in the New Year and may it be a real happy one! Your wonderful questions will be the feature for the first SYW of the New Year too … just in case you were wondering.. 😀

    My alter ego would be Superbird. Able to leap tall buildngs in a single bound. I have an advantage-I can do that already.

  5. A head bashing almost seems like a bonus for Buster…he usually ends up being eviscerated.

  6. Phil Taylor says:

    Hopeful. That’s my one word for 2022

  7. draliman says:

    Mitzi’s talents lie in other areas.
    I didn’t realise you have computerised tech and green screens at the Nest! You can hardly even see the outline…
