Question 51 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Pete | 31 Comments – latest by daniel

MOO is still wide awake in the USA (especially as we didn’t get to go to the party!) so for those of you who aren’t tucked up in bed:

Domicile03, Erin’s Dilemma
If this were a reality show, I’d be in a closet talking to a camera right now. I’ve always lived alone because it makes it so much easier to deal with certain… quirks I have. For example, I became a mycologist because I see mushrooms everywhere. That doesn’t mean I’m simply good at spotting mushrooms, but that I see mushrooms in places where no mushroom has a right to be. I wish I had some way of showing you the world through my eyes.

Question 50 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Pete | 24 Comments – latest by Clare

Wow, number 50! In marriage terms, we have reached our golden anniversary. Lots of hard work, but I am sure you will agree, lots of great rewards too? Anyway, down to business:

Domicile03, Guin
I was happy to help out my cousins, distant though they were, but if they thought they were getting a free vacation, they were sadly mistaken. I’d been trying to get at a particular area of exposed rock to take some measurements and the local wildlife hadn’t been at all cooperative. I could temporarily lure them into large pens, but if I wasn’t careful with their placement, they’d run riot and break out–making it impossible to safely examine the traces of weather.
I had four …Continue reading this article…

Hardboiled, The Journey

Ray’s Confusion

After we got the bears out of town, it was time to get ourselves to safety. We’d arranged to stay with a distant cousin who was working on some Ecuadorian islands. We were taking a train to the coast, a boat to the island and then hiking inland to find her.We had a tradition, my …Continue reading this article…

September 2009, by Emilie | 2 Comments – latest by AG

Question 48 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 11 Comments – latest by Anna0305

We are having fun at MOO party but thinking of people who couldn’t make it! Please keep smiling as here is another chance to win a Mosaic Frame and a pack of MiniCards:

Domicile03, Sus’s Search

As an astronomer, Sus spends a lot of time searching the skies for new objects and events. In fact, she lives in her own observatory, with a gigantic telescope jutting through a hole in her roof.
Today, as she checks the usual night-sky objects off her list, she notices a new pattern. There’s something new amongst the asteroid belts and planets. Something new that’s comprised of three elements. Excitedly, she focuses the lens and watches as it speeds towards the earth.

Question 47 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 8 Comments – latest by Nina

How about a little poem? A break would be nice. As Corvus said (he is our super clue writer), Unbearable will give people paws… er, pause. So let’s make tea and get started on this one!

Unbearable Lightness of Being: Poppa’s Tale

I know you probably want me to write a poem, but I’m not good at writing. My pen can never quite find its way across the page, roaming from uppercase to lowercase at a whim.. I’m also not a poet like my wife and son. In fact, when I try to count syllables, I usually end up writing numbers instead of letters. Well, if Black Bart could call himself a po8, I guess I can too. Anyway, here’s …Continue reading this article…

Question 46 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 26 Comments – latest by Gabi

MOO staff are getting very excited about tonight’s birthday party and working on a tailored hairstyle… photos to come! In the meantime, let’s start playing with a new twisted question.
Up for grabs today we have the perfect ‘MOO Combo’ of a MiniCard Mosaic Frame and a pack of MOO MiniCards!

Hardboiled, Part Fifteen

The Warning

Mary was Goldilocks. But Goldilocks? She wasn’t Goldilocks at all. She was something far worse than a constant thorn in the side of the three bears. We prepared a message for Nick to deliver to the three bears:

W V U Y G ,

P V G L G H V K O N L Y …Continue reading this article…

Question 44 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 37 Comments – latest by Gaia

Moving onto the next question. It’s time to check on our bears, apparently Goldilocks is causing trouble, again. If you want to win a Mix Tape USB from Suck UK, you know what to do – answers in comments please!

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Nick was waiting for the three bears when they finally arrived at Moo HQ. He got straight to the point, “Goldilocks is not who she seems and you’re in grave danger.”

“Oh,” said Momma bear, “I’m sure you must be imagining things.”

“Danger,” scoffed Poppa bear, “she can’t be stronger than me!”

“Why,” asked Baby bear in a soft voice, “who is she really?”

Nick told them who Goldilocks really was and all three bears went silent.

“Oh dear,” Momma …Continue reading this article…
