4/14/06 HELP

9:51 p.m.
Okay, bloglit. I need your help. And this involves chocolate, so please....do what you can for me.

I just got into California a few hours ago to spend the Easter holiday with LHM. He picked me up from the airport and there was a rolled up envelope in the car door. I didn't pay much attention to it until I read who it was addressed to:

Baby Cakes
69 Bet Your Sweet Ass Lane
San Diego, CA

Huh. If somebody is sending letters to LHM at 69 Sweet Ass Lane I want to know about it...so I can find her and dispatch her with impunity. (Don't worry. I wouldn't really dispatch her with impunity. I just said that because there are so few opportunities to use that phrase in context.)

Anyway, I pulled the envelope out of the door handle and unrolled it. I turned it over and there was a note on the back that said, "Open when you are ready for Easter!!"

Hmm. Delay gratification, or go for the chocolate Easter Bunny goodness now.

I tore open the envelope and found a clue inside. It said, "Well, baby, I knew you couldn't wait. So the first clue is hidden with LHM and three heads of state."

I figured that one out. It was hidden in LHM's wallet with his money. The second clue was, "No matter where you go, I know where you are, which is good..because your next clue is hiding in a place that doesn't exist anymore."

I figured that one out, too. It was hidden on the globe in LHM's living room..stuck on the Soviet Union..which doesn't exist anymore. The third clue said " *JUMP* My life is hanging by a thread. One small shake and I'd be dead. Not up, nor down, nor left, look right! I have a stud to keep me warm at night."

That one was easy. There's a picture of a gargoyle jumping off the edge of a castle in LHM's house. The clue was stuck to the back on the right side.

And this brings me to why I'm writing. I'm going to need some help with the next one(and probably a few more..there are seven left)

The fourth clue says this: "The people who use me the most remember using me the least."

Other than mind altering drugs (and I checked his house to no avail) I can't think of what that might be. Does anybody out there in the blogosphere have any bright ideas?

I'd go with some sort of reminder - a calendar or a PDA or some such thing.

Because when you forget what day something is, you have to go look again.

Polly,
I haven't a clue, but isn't so romantic that he'd go through all that for you?

A casket? I heard a joke similar to this riddle. It's morbid, but true. Got any caskets laying around Polly?

I don't get it. But it's early (as you know) here in su.so.ca.

At first I thought you meant SOC (some other chidk) left it for him, but now that I've read the comments, I assume he left it for you to find?

So you can see from all that, I'm absolutely no help AT ALL.
But Good Luck!!! :)

*goes back to reread in light of this new information*

Clue #4

How about a newspaper?

I've gotten with the program but I'm really bad with stuff like this, riddles, etc.
If it were me, I'd just start yelling, GD it, just tell me!!!
And then I'd stamp my feet (in a cute way, of course).
:)

I'm right on E's side of the fence on this one: adorable tantrum.
