"HELP!!! My nerd is stuck in a tree!!"

This is a Family blog, obviously. You might have noticed, though, that other people have made appearances. These people are dear family friends - every family has those, right? Anyway, it's kind of a family tradition to attack or commandeer each other's rooms when the owner goes out of town. This tradition has become slightly more widespread than we'd ever imagined - as you say in Kate's post "The Worst Pirates You've Ever Seen."
Well, Maddiline - The Supreme Samurai - went to Disneyland - The Happiest Place On Earth 0 with her family and I am usually the first one called to watch their adorable little dog, Nike - the energetic puff ball. So, I have 'into the house' privileges, which naturally extend to 'into Maddiline - the Supreme Samuari's - room' privileges. Being me, I also have constant Plotter privileges, so this whole room thing was pretty much in the bag.
Even if we're all over the age of 17, Phineas and Ferb is our favorite T.V. show. Ever. Perry the Platypus is our favorite character. His nemesis (nemi - nemi. Oh my nemi - nemi)? Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, the natural antagonist that should attack the Samurai's room. I spent a good 30-60 minutes looking up pictures of the infamous doctor to plaster all over Maddiline - The Supreme Samuari's room. Once I returned to her house, Katie in shotgun, we went to work - cutting out the pictures and setting up the Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated (you KNOW you just sang that in your head, maybe even out loud) sign.
Now you can't have Doofenshmirtz without Perry, it just doesn't work. So Perry the Platypus makes his appearances as well.
