The Mystery Continues

My investigation today turned up no results. Nobody named Ellen signed the Guest Book at the front desk, which she would have seen if she dropped off the present for me at the front desk. So now I'm back to Square One.

I don't have any leads, so I decided to ask Professor Snaglefoompus for help. He used to be a detective before he became a professor, you know.

Me: Do you have any ideas who Ellen could be, Professor?
Professor Snaglefoompus: Well, I have studied the available evidence, and I have come to two conclusions.
Me: What are they?
Professor Snaglefoompus: Ellen left a present outside of your room at school. Conclusion 1: Ellen must be someone who knows a lot about you.
Me: That makes sense. What's conclusion two?
Professor Snaglefoompus: She gave you a coffee maker, but you don't drink coffee. Therefore, she doesn't know about your eating habits. Conclusion 2: Ellen must be someone who doesn't know a lot about you.
Me: So...she's someone who knows a lot about me, and someone who doesn't know about me.
Professor Snaglefoompus: Correct.
Me: ......
Professor Snaglefoompus: Say, if you're not going to use that coffee maker, can I have it?

Okay, so maybe asking the professor wasn't such a good idea. Tomorrow, I'll let you know the confusing results of my handwriting analysis.

well...my idea is..if this person left you a present once...wouldn't they leave one again?

this is REALLY hard to figure out.

hmmph

michael i found 3 various possibilities on who ellen is:
1.it might be some crazy girl who really loves your walkthroughs and went through alot of trouble to find out what university you go to, and she left you the gift for your birthday (since you said it was your birthday BEFORE she did it.) maybe you should check out some comments on various blog posts you did, and maybe ellen will turn up... if it is correct, looks like someone DID break into the school to give you a coffee maker lol...
2. (this possibilitie is a little less probable, but it is possible)
it could be ellen from tv, trying to secretly tell you that she loves your walkthroughs and thinks your funny! i mean it would make sence because no one knows her last name, and if she said her last name than it would be kinda weird... because than it would be even HARDER to find out it was her....
3. one of your friends on campus is pulling your leg.
hope i helped!!!!

michael did you think about maybe calling the cops or something??? i mean it could be someone really crazy! im just saying... i think some people would think its a pretty big deal getting a birthday present from someone you dont know and cant contact. although it really might be just someone pulling your leg...

Jo said...

This is dead creepy but like other people have said it could just be someone on campus pulling your leg no offence or anything but i will laugh if it is someone pulling your leg cause i think thats kinda funny

It wouldn't surprise me if someone is playing a joke on you trying to get you to solve your first mystery, since you have the experience as Nancy's "Dr. Watson"... lol...

And Great story!! The old Professor stories never get old.... You need to go on Blurb.com and write a Professor Snaglefoompus book!! I'd buy that!! :)

Well, considering you have a lot of fans, maybe some ninja fan snuck onto campus to give you a random gift. I hear they do that, ninja fans, you know. I'm sure you can figure it out. You might also consider that this 'Ellen' might not really be an Ellen, but is too shy to write her real name on the gift. Maybe 'Ellen' anagrams to the first or last name of someone on campus, or maybe it's someone's middle name. Just an idea.

You know, I happened to think, maybe it's not an "Ellen", but instead, a "Nelle".

Well it looks like you are going to start living your very own Nancy Drew mystery. Maybe you should call Nancy and get her help. LOL!

Michael K.:
That's PRECISELY what I was saying! Maybe 'Ellen' isn't the person's real name, but maybe, like you said, it's 'Ellen' backwards, like 'Nelle', or maybe Ellen is someone's middle name, or a code name or something of the sort. Maybe 'Ellen' even anagrams to someone's middle or last name, or even a nickname!

did the coffee maker have a returning sheet on it? maybe if the coffee maker had a returning sheet, than it would obviously say what store its from. therefore if it was a store from inside the campus, you'd know that its not someone from outside the school, and if it was a store outside campus, you would know.... nothing lol... but its worth to check it.
