Life is actually pretty good. In some ways I've been able to enjoy the life I had in my old body, while being in this new body. I have my old job back. I'm trying to find a way to make Velvet Sky pay for her crimes. April and I have been growing a new friendship all over again. I'm even becoming friends with Michelangelo. It sucks that I'm still, I repeat still, in the wrong damn body, but we can't always get what we want. I've made peace with my new look. In some ways I feel like I am kindred spirits with Psylocke. Except I have wings and I'm not a ninja. Or mutant. Or maybe I am. Maybe my wings and crimped hair are a mutation of the homo superior variety. I also communicate with bugs. Clearly there is some sort of mutation situation going on with Moth Lady.
None of that matters though. I'm going to get Michelangelo back. That's right Diary. I don't care that he has moved on with Mona Lisa. She's a sweet lizard girl and all, but no one can hold a torch to the sweetest dorkette around. We've been meeting up at the dog park lately bonding over Chewie, the dog he bought for me as a gift that I never got... On account of the whole dying thing. It's all good. I'm gonna find my way back into his heart. Everything is comin' up Miss M!
Velvet Sky: That's awesome sis, but I need more money.
Mila: My goodness what do you need all this money for? Cheap hot pink spandex surely can't cost that much.
Mila: I know, but when does it end? When will you be famous?
Velvet Sky: I don't know! I was set to take over the world but then that utter Total Darkness nonsense spoiled my plans to say nothing of that blasted dork girl a year ago. I thought she'd never die and now I'm in hiding until those stupid Cat Ladies stop sniffing my trail.
Velvet Sky: First off, never use my real name. Secondly, I killed no one. We've been through this already. Now drop it and wire me more money! I have a title belt to win.
Mila: Fine, fine. I got it. I'll transfer some funds immediately.
Meanwhile at the dog park...
Michelangelo: Yeah. He has a gnarly bite. That old dudette's bones look brittle.
Agnes Skinner: This pink dog has a penis.
Chewie: Grrr. Woof!
Agnes Skinner: Your bark sounds mean. I think I like you.
Miss M: I know. I'm happy that you were able to look past all that crazy stuff I said about being your dead girlfriend trapped in the wrong body a few months back. I mean, how ludicrous could that possibly be?
Michelangelo: It's cool. You were, like, having a bad time. Are you still living under the bridge?
Miss M: No. I'm still looking for a place to call my own, but I am currently staying at a cheap hotel at the intersection of Mediterranean and Baltic Avenue. It's not ideal, but it is next to a McDonald's so that's good.
Michelangelo: Totally. So what else ya got planned for the day?
Michelangelo: I've heard about those babes. Mona Lisa finally got an appointment with them too, I had to wait for her to have her hair appointment before I could make plans for our super big date.
Miss M: Oh? So things seem to be going strong for you both?
Michelangelo: Yeah, totally. She's been like a rock. Like a green rock with a cute face on it.
Miss M: (smiles sadly) That's nice.
Miss M: Bruce Wayne? Yes. We were living together, but just as friends. And he wasn't creepy. Maybe socially awkward, but not creepy.
Michelangelo: Right on dudette. Never give up on that funny rad little feeling called love.
April turns after hearing her name being called.
April: (stands in shock) Are you real?
Irma: Yeah, we just got back into town and we were craving soft serve.
Guy Friday: Yeah, we were picking up some snacks before heading into work.
April: This is work.
April: Our lives are over.
Irma: Oh wow.
Guy Friday: So it looks like Megan Fox is getting some revenge.
April: What does that mean?
Guy Friday: N-n-nothing April.
Irma: Calm down April. It sounds like you've been through a lot. We didn't know all this was going on while we were gone. We were staying at Meg...
Guy Friday: We were lost in the Mega Mart!
Irma: We were?
April: Well aren't you two quite the rebels!
Irma: Yeah. That's us. Rebels.
April: That was our first marriage. The second one was in October, last year.
Irma: Oh, ok. Got ya.
April: Welcome back you two. Stick around this time, yes?
Later on at the hair salon...
Miss M: Thanks for seeing me so soon. I know you are booked like crazy.
Miss M: Yeah. Well we were together once and very much in love. However I went away for awhile and now with the way I look, I just don't think he really sees me for me, ya know?
Truvy: Of course darlin. We'll flatten your hair out.
Miss M: Oh cool! I've always wanted to try out a hair flat iron. Is it an Ionic Ceramic one?
Leonardo: Aww Mikey, why are you nervous?
Leonardo: I don't know Mikey. Maybe that's something you should ask Splinter, he is wise in the way of love.
Michelangelo: Only because he watches all those soap operas. Leo, you're the leader. You have to know stuff.
Michelangelo: I have mega strong feelings for Mona Lisa. But I've also been spending time with that Moth Lady... and there is something about her.
Leonardo: Oh Mikey, don't tell me you are falling for that creepy Moth Lady.
Leonardo: Great. Then just go with that. Enjoy your date tonight and live your life.
