Pixie, Lol!

Hmm, I actually don't know right off the bat what color my front door is. I think it's white. We never use the front door so I don't pay attention to it. I'm pretty sure it's white though.

How can we get people posting here again?

*takes pumpkin and sits on it*

Do rejected HP merchandise ideas count? Then Moaning Myrtle crying toilet seats.

Should kids get presents from the Great Pumpkin on Halloween?

To stay sane until my children are raised.

Hmmm...I still haven't sent the ones I bought two years ago out. Is that late enough? One year I sent them out a few days AFTER Christmas and told everyone the mail just must have been behind. :)

Do you have haunted hayrides or cornfield mazes in September and October for Halloween celebrations? (They are much fun)

We do, but there are also a lot of those wet blanket anti-Halloween events.

Do you like a scary or cutesy Halloween?

Scary! The whole point of Hallowe'en is being scary to drive the evil spirits away!

The BBC once had a mock call-in program on Hallowe'en, called "Ghostwatch", with real presenters holding a nation-wide sťance. It was the scariest thing I've ever watched. It started innocently before 9 o'clock, until a pan on a room revealed a very quick image of a very scary old woman. It went downhill from there. Some people complained because they thought it was real (it had been announced as a "BBC1 drama" for weeks!).

What's the last thing you've knitted?

I think a baby glove when I was six. I'm not one of nature's knitters.

Do you believe in true love?

How weird, I was going to ask exactly the same question.

Yes, most definitely.

So many to love, but I think because it really looks like it's enjoying itself.

Do you get manicures and/or pedicures?

I get pedicures sometimes, my feet look positively frightning otherwise (and I get "ewwwwy" comments from my other half). TMI?

What's the worst type of haircut you've ever had?

In the early 1980s I got my hair cut very short on the sides and poofy-premed on top, with long bangs (fringe) that flipped all over to one side. Add to that lots of "Sun In" and it was frightening to behold.

Have you planted your fall bulbs yet? (Or spring flowers for those down under?)

Nope. Letting my back garden become a forest.

I did have to get a lightbulb replaced today, if that counts.

How should I scare the kids on Halloween?

Hang up a big sign "beware, do not ring the doorbell, or you will be sorry" and kidnap the first child of every group that does, yelling "aaaaaaaaargh, the final ingredient for my bone soup has finally arrived!" (giving scared kid back afterwards, of course).

It's funny how the worst haircuts always seem to date from the eighties!

What's your most hated mode of transport?

The London Night Bus. This modern metropolis is so swinging and cosmopolitan that the local government thinks we have no need for the London Underground or a fully functioning bus system after midnight. So if you want to get anywhere you need the Night Bus, which only shows up once an hour and only follows a small number of routes, and if those routes don't happen to be anywhere near your house, you can look forward to a night of walking aimlessly in the cold for five hours.

Is there anything worse than a posh, silver-spooned politician trying to connect with modern youth?

Gag.

Er, I mean, no, there aren't a lot of things worse than a posh, silver-spooned politician trying to connect with modern youth.

There are worse things than the London Night Bus. If you live in the sticks out here there ain't any public transport, except for a bus that goes twice on Saturday (one at 9am, one back at 5pm). I was amazed at the bus services in the Peak District. Tiny little villages get a bus an hour! And they have train stations! And the trains actually stop .

What was your favourite cuddly toy when you were little?

A cabin in the snow. My mother had just divorced my father, and was living with a guy in Colorado, who had a cabin which was in the middle of nowhere. I spent the winter with him. He bounced me on a ball. I was probably three or so.

What's yours?

Bossing my mother down the phone. She was in hospital having just given birth to my little brother. I was two and a half at the time. I remember standing on a chair to reach the phone, which was big and black and had a dial that you swing around (I miss those). She wanted to call my brother one name; I was adamant that he should be named something else. I won. He prefers my chosen name, which goes to show that I've always had good taste.

What are you doing tomorrow?

I haven't decided whether I'll be continuing my fanfic or making contacts at Cambridge to follow up on my PhD topic.

That's a sweet story. I wish I had that much input in naming my brother.

What would you name a dog?

It's like a tabloid, except instead of being serious, they are really mean and nasty to all the no-talent crackheads that every single pre-teen american girl idolizes. It's refreshing.

I lost my son in the park. He was gone for an entire afternoon, we had goodness knows how many policemen, two teachers, and a whole bunch of strangers looking for him.

What's your favourite cheese?
