Hot Dogs, Music, and Videos! It's Wednesday!

What could be exciting about the middle day of the week? Here's how I look at it: If it's been a good week, we still have two more days to enjoy it's awesomeness! If it's been a rather tiresome week thus far, no worries, there are only a couple days left until the weekend.

This is the former kind of week. It's been awesome! But now there have been enough questions in the comments to the blog and on our social media channels that I was thinking that a Wednesday would be a grand day to address these.

First off, I had to share this with you: our Luncheoning group gathered today and went for a walk down the parking lot to the visiting hot dog cart, where we each got a fantastic hot dog! Although I don't normally go for this type of meal, it was good to mix things up for a bit and enjoy a classic lunch! My hot dog choice was this: basic dog with cream cheese, sweet chili sauce, green peppers and onions. Some other team members were more brave to get the Chipotle Chicken dogs...or whatever that spicy mayhem was!

As for the music video that went up yesterday, it was a collaboration between our Tech Girl, Marketing Director and I. I wrote the lyrics, edits were made by our Marketing Director and Tech Girl, our Tech Girl created the melody and played the guitar (and of course, sang it), I filmed and edited, and our Marketing Director posted to our YouTube channel. Ta-da! Teamwork.

Now for more important lyrics...

Many of you have tried identifying the lyrics to one of the more popular songs in the Ghost of Thornton Hall soundtrack (available here) called "Sweet Charlotte", sung by the ghost, but it's a little tough to hear these. Here are the correct lyrics:

"Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home
Your house is on fire, and your children are gone
All except one, sweet Charlotte Ann
And she hid under the frying pan"

Parts of this song will be heard in the official trailer, helping to make it extra creepy... Spoiler date! The trailer will be launched this Tuesday! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel!

You have such a refreshing outlook on the work week! Usually it's just, "I can't wait to get through this week..." but it's so much better to think of it like you do. Thanks for sharing that! :)

I have a question to ask. How do you listen to the Ghost of Thornton Hall Soundtrack? All I see is the page to order and when I click on download, I do not see any sample tracks I can listen to. I'm dying to listen to the soundtrack so please help me out!

I just watched the music video and all I can say is...WOW THAT ROCKED!A weird thing popped into my head when I was listening to this.I've tried to write a song about ND before (sometimes it's pretty good...sometimes it stinks) and the title of one of them was I am Nancy!(pretty similar and weird!(: )
I can't wait for GTH!I've been talking about it on my blog and can't wait to scare my head off when I get my game!

Charlotte Ann, you say? Wow!

I don't believe I have ever eaten a hotdog with cream cheese. :) I always do ketchup and mustard - I'm kinda boring, that way.

@Sinthu - You buy it on our website. Click on the "Shop" tab at the top, and to left left is a button on the list called "Soundtracks".

@Silvertongue - Cream Cheese indeed! It was AMAZING!

@Maggie - We currently do not have any mini-games planned for GTH at the moment. :(
