Yes, it's election season again in Ohio and we all wish we could move! (Teehee -- I get to go to Florida for the next six days so at least I'll miss three million of the six million negative campaign ads we're being bombarded with right now. )

P.S. Love the Halloween decorations!

It is absolutely beautiful in PA right now. This is the first year in a while that we've had beautiful fall folliage. Everything is so vibrant. Usually we get a bad wind storm that comes and strips the trees before peak week. It's been chilly and below normal temperatures, but that hasn't hurt the leaves.

My fingernails are crap from working on my dollhouse. I'm going to have to take pictures of it to post. I'm just about done with the interior. All I have left is some trim and furniture. The furniture will have to wait because I'm making almost all of it myself. It's too expensive to actually buy the stuff. The exterior is about 3/4ths done. I still have brickwork to do and to add the porch and finish the roof. This house has become a royal pain to finish, but it will be beautiful when it's done. I put it away for about two years and got it back out last spring. I've only worked on it sporadically, but I'm determined to finish it within the next month as I'm tired of seeing it unfinished. I got the kit for a steal a few years ago, but I've upgraded it a lot and it somewhat doesn't resemble the original. I quit long ago adding up the cost of materials, but if I sold it I wouldn't let it go for under $400. Now that it's almost finished I regret not electrifying it. It's too late now so it will have to do without it. I will be glad when it's finished.

I didn't know you lived in Ohio, Pixie - my condolences! You guys are ground-zero for election overkill. I get sick of elections myself and the national political campaigns scarcely bother with CA - by the time the election reaches our time zone, it's decided. Our Guberator is distancing himself from Bush - what an ORIGINAL idea! Bet no one else in the GOP thought of that.


And I love you, I love you, I love you.

I'm going to be in Texas over the midterms. All I can say is thank my British passport I can't vote in US elections anymore. I think I'll spend the entire day in bed. I don't think I could take the stress.

I don't know about that, diri. The democrats may take control, but control by default isn't going to be much of an improvment. None of the dems seem to be saying what they will do to fix things, they mostly point out the mistakes of the reps (which, all things considered, is pretty easy).

As soon as I figure out how to do it. I thought I had it, but apparently not. I've asked Mad-Eye for help.

Here's the scoop on guest posting. The system doesn't allow for guest posting with any ease. See, it's not something that is in great demand as it attracts adverts and trolls. The mod for it is long and involved too-- another thing we did not know.

Soooooo, for the party just use the following login and behave yourselves-- but have fun, too!:

A guest dressed in theatrical garb and humming show tunes wanders onto the village green, looks around for signs of life, and heaves a sigh of relief when they find none.

Attempting to relieve the quiet the guest begins singing both parts of the following:
LOVETT: Here we are, now! Hot out of the oven!
TODD: What is that?

LOVETT: It's priest. Have a little priest.
TODD: Is it really good?
LOVETT: Sir, it's too good, at least!
Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh,
So it's pretty fresh.
TODD: Awful lot of fat.
LOVETT: Only where it sat.
TODD: Haven't you got poet, or something like that?
LOVETT: No, y'see, the trouble with poet is
'Ow do you know it's deceased?
Try the priest!

TODD: (spoken) Heavenly!
Not as hearty as bishop, perhaps,
but then again, not as bland as curate, either!

LOVETT: And good for business, too -- always leaves you wantin' more!
Trouble is, we only get it on Sundays!

The singing trails off into a hum as the guest finds the punch bowl and buffet table.

A small rodent of indeterminite genus pops its head above the grass of the village green. It begins to speak to the air in snuffleish.

Bugger! This is autumn? There I was breaking my backside all bloody October gatherin' up nuts for the winter and it ain't even here yet!

A ghostly figure who bears a striking resemblence to Captain Kangaroo shuffles into the room. He seems tired, depressed, and there is a strong smell of Johnny Walker on his breath. "Ugggh!" The figure exclaims. "I feel like I was driven over a cliff." He goes into the tearoom, wondering aimlessly, before grabbing an entire pot of coffee, and sinking down into a large, comfy chair. "Oh, Mary, Mary, why have you done this to me? I just wanted a date, why'd you call for a psuedo intervention?"

Hmmm. The only Mary I know of is Mary Martin of the stage (OK she was also Larry Hagman's mother). That reminds me of a song...

"I'm gonna wash the blood right off of my hands,
I'm gonna wash the blood right off of my hands,
I'm gonna wash the blood right off of my hands, and
destroy the evidence."

*A portly Italian dressed in a tuxedo enters the room*

Singing! Singing! I have found my audience, for here is a group gathered to appreciate my vocal excellence!

Let us drink from the goblets of joy
adorned with beauty,
and the fleeting hour shall be adorned
with pleasure.
Let us drink to the secret raptures
which love excites,
for this eye reigns supreme in my heart...
Let us drink, for with wine
love will enjoy yet more passionate kisses.

*wanders in without costume to comment on television tonight*

Omgosh, Dave Letterman tonight was something else. Usually he just goofs off and does his usual routine, but Bill O'Reilly was on and they were really getting into it about the War and Bush. I've never really seen Letterman like this. He always handles political interviews intelligently and civily, but tonight you could just tell that Letterman thought O'Reilly was a big windbag...which he is. Then when they came back from break Letterman said "You know, if I really knew what I was talking about I'd have something." All this political talk is just turning everyone weird.

I've got to pick a costume. I always wait till the last minute. I'll come back tomorrow with one. I'm too tired and need to go to bed to do it tonight.

*goes to bed to ponder costume*

*wanders in also non-costumed* Hallowe'en isn't for days! Although my housemate is going to a H party tonight, thrown by one of our lecturers who is Canadian. She's made herself a toga outfit.

I went shopping today - the Spring Racing Carnival is on, and I have a fabulous huge hat to wear to Cup Day. Now I also have a pair of shoes to go with it. Perhaps I need to invest in something to go in between...

Enjoy the party! You're all very musical thus far! (and the purple writing kind of makes me nostalgic...)

Too bad Letterman backed down. I don't watch Letterman (more of a Daily Show person), but it would have been interesting to see that. Sounds like someone stepped in and told him he had to chill.

He had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it

Honey, you would have done the same!"

Well, this party is going swimmingly! Just hope nobody dies.

It's official: Daughter can kick butt!!! She got her purple belt this morning-- been on cloud nine ever since. I imagine some time tonight she'll have a melt-down.

I shall have to think on it a while, but do have some punch.

*sings*
Belladonna first lady of the stage!
Your poisonees are on their knees for forgiveness!

Can you not hear that they're pleading with you?
Don't think of how they all annoyed you!

*Gives some serious thought to the wisdom of drinking the punch. Decides on a opening bottle of vino insteado*


Drink my darling, drink with me,
Let your heart be gay and free
All the world will look so bright,
Bathed in glowing rosy light.


Ah, Rosalinda.. where are you now?

*Little Miss Muffet arrives with her tuffet in tow*

So, where is everyone. I thought this party would be hopping. Did everyone take some sleeping pills? Maybe I'll just sit on my tuffet and have a snack until the dancing starts.

*wanders in, having been missing for a few days, and what do I find? All sorts of "guests", singing, no less--and the background is lovely and mysterious looking*

No costume for me, but I'll enjoy seeing all of yours, as long as it doesn't involve my having to sew it. I'm feeling just a bit snarky at the moment. Oldest daughter wanted to come last night to use my sewing machine to make her Halloween costume for a party this Saturday night. Now, mind you, she doesn't sew, and neither does her friend, who was going to help her. Which was going to mean they thought they'd drag me into it. But the last time I did that, I spent two weeks making Laura's costume that turned out to be very hard--and I've done enough sewing to handle it, but still.

So, I found an old pink bride's maid dress of mine, but they had also gotten a dress at a second hand store, and figured out how to make it work. So no sewing, which was a good thing. (The most irritating was that Sarah said--"You said it would be easy to make." Well, yes, if you had started a week ago and not less than 24 hours before you want to wear it. Argh OK, rant over--I'll come back later. Or maybe I will, but you won't know it's me.

All right you dreamy man! Let us dance! This crowd needs some inspiration and our example, though impossible to replicate in grace and skill, may prove to be what is needed.

Besides, the papers will have a wonderful time reporting our "liason."
