That's because it's not in there. ;)  I've attached a script which does
that.  Unfortunately, I can't review it here because I don't have AScript
Open it and click on "Project Script".  Anyhow, it's something like

tell application "MCL" <<event 'usermood'>> with property:<<mood>>:"Happy"

which will send lisp and event of type 'user' class 'mood' with a keyword
property mood which contains the string "happy"...

the << and >> are chevron(?) characters which are option-[ and ] respectively.

Let me know if this helps.
