RoseRed posted about Halloween and how she 'doesn't like it'. Though some may think me a wowser, I don't like it either. I liked it even less, with all it's commercialism and not being part of our Australian culture, when this appeared in my letter box today:
Pretty sure I am going to make a sign for my front steps and back gate saying that I am philosophically opposed to Halloween, regardless of its origins. I am Australian, not Celtic or American, and I believe it to be nothing more than an out and out attempt by businesses to make money by co-opting Australian children to their Halloween cause. MrsDrWho will be happy to help I am sure. I shall be ready!!
I just googled and found most of the text is taken from Yahoo Answers. Not even original.
I did give Ms TinkingBell some gifts. I have been pondering the TARDIS lately and working on a 'generic blue police box' zippy bag. (As she says, I don't want to be hunted down by the BBC) It still needs a bit of tweaking because the gap between the windows is a tad small, but I am inordinately happy with the way the handle pops out of the top.I also embroidered some fabric and covered buttons. I am not sure how many were needed, so I did some, with the promise of more when needed!!!
I bought Gilly a new toy, a frisbee. She seems to like things that fly through the air, like flies. I threw it from the gate and then lost sight of it. I spent a bad twenty minutes searching for it up and under trees. Gilly helped, searching and sniffing ever so diligently. Then she went back inside and came proudly out with the frisbee in her mouth. She had taken it inside at the very start!!!! Harki likes the frisbee too, it's a proper dog toy, but she didn't get a look in.
Here is Peri looking ever so happy. She's usually hiding from Lorelai Gilmore and this may be her happiest look for a while. Today when she opened the gate and slipped into The Forbidden Zone, Lorelai Gilmore ran to the gate but it was too late and the gate closed. Undeterred, she put her little paw and nose in the gap and opened that gate and went in all by herself. Poor Peri!! Clever Lorelai Gilmore!!
