Clue - Live

I recently decided to host a Clue - Live! party. I decided that my suspects would be Ms. Scarlet, Cornel Mustard, Mrs. White, Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Miss Peach, M. Brunette, Madame Rose, Lady Lavender, and Sgt. Gray. The weapons are the wrench, rope, lead pipe, revolver, candlestick, knife, poison, horseshoe, pillow, frying pan, and ice pick. The rooms are the ballroom, the billiard room, the hall, the conservatory, the dining room, the kitchen, the library, the study, and the lounge. Anyway, in each room I am going to hide a Clue pertaining to a suspect, weapon, or room. If the Clue tells you about a suspect, weapon, or room, then that cannot be in the case file. The solution that I decided on is: Mrs. White, in the Lounge, with the Rope. You can change who did it by writing some CLues of our own. Anyway, here are all of the Clues:

If Black, is night, it’s not,
The lawyer’s plight, it’s not,
But in between, it’s seldom seen,
But certainly not light.
Answer: Sgt. Gray

If tree fruits were to marry,
Them being Plum and Peach,
Putting aside their differences,
A baby’s life to reach.
If tree fruits were to marry,
Their child needn’t beseech,
For Peach lightened her eyes,
And Plum darkened beneath.
Answer: Lady Lavender

If sweetness was perfection,
Perfection would be she,
If sweetness were heaven,
She’d score 203,
If sweetness was perfection,
Not that it ought to be,
The pit would be perfection,
Wouldn’t she?
Answer: Miss Peach

Flowers bloom,
Flowers zoom,
Flowers grow,
To make room.
There are no missing flowers,
There are no missing flowers,
So do not waste the hours,
Dwelling on the very thought of it.
Answer: Madame Rose

Order to you,
Order to me,
Order to Order,
Order to He,
Order to Paint,
And brushes and glue,
Order to me, and order to you.
Answer: M. Brunette

I stare from above,
The world is at my fingertips,
I spy a hawk, a crow, and something more,
A perfect display of all that is good in the world,
Bright colors,
Answer: Mrs. Peacock

Washington is first,
Jefferson is two,
Three and four are gone,
And so are faces two,
Lincoln is five
Hamilton, Jackson, Grant,
Needless to say that Grant,
Would Scream and Rave and Rant,
Franklin, McKinley, Cleveland,
Madison and Chase,
Yet not running about,
From place to place to place,
Wilson is in fact,
The highest that they go,
At 100,000,
He steals the show.
So keep your trust in God,
A color you will see,
And He of colored faith,
Innocent Be.
P.S.: E Pluribus Unum
Answer: Mr. Green

Not to be mixed up with another,
His color distinguishes him from some brothers,
Einstein’s definition of insanity,
Or Julius Caesar’s death-to-be,
Or Egypt’s Great Mythology,
All of it comes naturally.
Answer: Professor Plum

Like father, like son,
Like Mother, like Daughter,
Like Father, like Daughter?
No matter. He’s dead.
Answer: Miss Scarlet

Orange is nice, but it’s not perfect,
Red is bright, but it will go lame,
Brown is dark, but death is destined,
And Purple will lose this game,
Pink is lovely,
White is sweet,
Gray and Blue are nice,
Lavender doesn’t smell like feet,
And Green is quite polite,
Now all of these are nice, I say,
But like I said before,
None of them would survive,
In war!
Answer: Cornel Mustard

The head, I admit,
Is a venerable place,
A place to kill,
A place to race,
Yet of the weapons for the head,
One is gone without a trace,
From your elimination.
The world, I admit,
Is a horrible place,
A place to die,
Without a trace,
You will go lame without this one,
Have I met,
Your expectations?
Answer: Horseshoe

IDOLS of gods cloud with steam,
CENTERING around a dead man’s dream,
EXITING the world in some way, how?
PLEASE read these clues and you’ll learn how.
IF only later you’ll say “wow”!

2. KILL the first following a rule.
Answer: Ice Pick

The egg is on your head. Where am I you ask?
Answer: Frying Pan

Your head is weak, dead, and limp. Celebrate; the world is at peace, because of me.
Answer: Pillow

Shrimp Scampi! Yum!
Fried Chicken! Delicious!
Fried Asparagus! Great!
Assuming you’re not me.
Answer: Poison

One hit the vase. Two hit the door. Three hit the door again. Four hit the chandelier. Five hit the telegram girl. Six hit the butler.
Answer: Revolver

If the Kitchen was the hotel, I am the resident.
If the Clue was the home, am a housecat.
If you didn’t know about me before tonight, I’m surprised.
If you knew about my partner before you knew about me, I’m even more surprised.
Answer: Knife

Smoke issues like an endless peace,
But your lungs are not at peace,
Lucky this isn’t it’s use,
Although water is no less polluted.
Answer: Lead Pipe

When your asthma kicks in, I’m present.
Unless there is another source,
The chimney billows smoke,
I’m left out.
Answer: Candlestick

Fixing a pipe, but I’m no pipe.
Killing a man, but I’m no man,
Learning a speech, but I can’t learn,
Visiting a zoo, which I’m within,
Among chimpanzees and apes.
Answer: Wrench

A little game of Clue we played,
A game within a game today,
Find the game a velvet and green,
A fortune-telling magic dream.
Answer: Billiard Room

Ghosts dance by,
Frolicking by,
Wondering why,
In the room with the champagne flutes.
Answer: Ballroom

Forget the second,
Remember My Friends!

Where Alice has made things right!
Answer: Conservatory

Learn is step one,
This is step two,
This is step three,
This is step four,
It could go on,
But I will not,
Take is step five,
Earn is step six,
Although steps two-four are optional.
Answer: Study

Skinning you!
Plucking you!
Shredding you!
Eating you!
Before you eat,
And ask for more.
Where has it,
Been before?
Answer: Kitchen

Have you heard the tale,
Of Edwin McGale,
Who was so hungry,
He ate a whale,
Yes, he grew fat,
And that is that,
But where did he eat the whale?
Answer: Dining Room

I am in need of several other Clues, but I can't think of any. I might just put up signs in various rooms saying: No Clue Here! on certain rounds. Also, I added a complex plot that involved various others arriving at the manor. It would not work for everyone, but it seems to be a promising idea. Be creative, and feel free to use any of these Clues in your own Clue game.

Letter To No One

Dear No One,
The book lies open, reading is not a crutch but a wing, flying is the crutch, imagination is neither wing nor crutch, but comes from flying which is a crutch and reading which is a wing. How can this be?

You'll Never Guess Who

I have been doing this a lot: typing wierd poem-like things into the search box in google, and seeing what comes up. This one turned into a strange letter. I call it the letter to no one.

Here's another letter to no one:

Dear No One,
If I were to stare at a rather square ball, would it become round? How can a ball be square in the first place? I think not, but in my sight I see one. A misfit. A lamb in a field of llamas. My eyes glaze over from the intensity of thought. Llamas devour the grass, and the lamb weeps. The tears are like the blood of the llamas as the lamb attracts lions to the field. Yet the lamb escapes. What does tell me about myself? Am I a lamb or a llama? I think I am a lamb, but is this good? Would I want to spend the day in the feild of llamas? Will the computer notice if I spell "llama" with capitol I's, as in ice that cannot support the weight of the lamb, who drowns, and joins the horrid IIamas. Yes, it noticed. But who is the villian in this scene? Are you a llama, a lion, or a lamb? Please give your thoughts to me, and tell me if the lions are the best? I think so, as they survive, and kill because they must. The llamas and lambs don't kill, but they still spread evil in their own ways. Lions being good made me think of Aslan from the series by C. S. Lewis. The Chronicles of Narnia. How good is a writer? Can a writer even be capable of good? Yes, but only bad ones. Does this seem right? I hope not.

You'll Never Guess Who

I hope you enjoyed a little nonsense.

Welcome to my happy stars glowing in the faint breezing happily joyous peace calmness here there money is extremely happy staring at the world turning towards the sun noticing writing a noticing glaring at the dog is out of the house for good god where is my child's truck rolls down the street and hits the olden days are behind us, and thus we sing in harmony, melody looked behind the house in the hope of spotting a pound that she gained by eating doe a deer I love you,


Silas Jones

I have decieded to type a post that features a lot of random words in a random order. Read this aloud: it actually has somewhat of a moving story. IF you like it, here is another.

Pointlessness of it, endless, the voice of a nymph in the airily staying in the perfection of this new year's day, yet the wind sweeps and staring in the wind is a man of sole intensions, his shoes black with soot, his face a blur on the evening wind, the world at his fingertips, my life in his hands, for death is he! Death is upon us all, but for now it is upon me, and he swindles out the candle, and the world in black with woe and misery, for alas, he is here.

Does this sound poetic to you? Note to self: maybe you should start writing poetry. It sounds old-timey to me, like something ouot of the mouth of an writer for the 18th Century. Please comment - yes, I know it's wierd.

I Changed My Template!

O.K., I really don't have any big news, but my old template was getting somewhat old, so I just changed it. I hope the new template doesn't confuse you too much: the layout is basically the same, and there are only a few major changes.

I apologize for not having posted in a while: my grandmother is extremely sick, I have been preoccupied by the NJ ASK test, and I just had a flute concert, not to mention that my piano and choir concerts are approaching fast. I'll try to post some more, but as of currently I am heading out the door to see my Grandma in the hospital, so I can't make this pst much longer. Please keep my Grandma in your hearts: I hope all goes well.
