Happy halloween!



Oh bollo.... the pumpkin is supposed to be animated.... hang on..... fox disappears to work it out. Ok, I've fixed it, but there's nothing worse than stealing a bad animated gif.... I coulda made it a quarter of the size.... there's so much wasted space round it.... I'm never happy!! Ok, I'm happy now, I've trimmed the animated gif, and optimised it a bit.... coulda been a little bit better, but I can live with it.

I stocked up on sweets for the happy halloween brigade.

The thing about England, compared to America, is that trick or treating is not nearly as popular here.

The nature of British trick or treat is quite simple in England... in the bronx, where I used to live, the trick would have consisted of anything from:

Strapping fireworks to your pets and blowing them up.
Pouring petrol through your letter box and lighting it while you sleep.
Burning your car.
At best, flour and eggs down the front of the house, your car, and your pets.

In the sticks, where I live now, the kids are not streetwise at all, the are in fact streetnaive!!

A trio of young girls called trick or treating tonight (and believe me that is the entire congregation that will be calling). Dressed as witches, and carrying pumpkin lantern, they offered me up. "Trick or treat?". I was about to dash inside and get them some treats, when it suddenly occurred to me that this might not be the only option.

"Now just hang on a minute..... what's the trick?" I asked.

They looked at me like I was an effing lunatic, paused for a moment. "Nowt" they replied in unison.

I gave them a bag of sweets each just out of sheer amazement at their lack of planning.

How much nicer it is to have reasonable kids who don't consider a halloween costume to consist of a hooded top, trainers, jeans, and a can of petrol!!

It was a good move coming to this house.

All in all, it's not been a bad day today. Things are looking up in the fox's lair.

Michelle surprised me in her own halloween costume... complete with collar, bell, and cat's ears... I leave the rest to your vivid imagination. I was playing Pogo so didn't look up for very long.

Cool thing for today:

Ok, it's definitely an over 18 link, but it's a great collection of vintage porn... very cool!! I particularly enjoyed the advert at the top of the page for the "fleshlight".... I haven't laughed so much in a long time!!

  3. HAH! The not looking up for long during Pogo is so "typical male"! I feel for poor Michelle.
    I too have moved from the ghetto to the suburbs and the difference is amazing. Kids actually dressed in costume, Parents actually walking with them, all quiet before 7:30pm. Ahhh. Good move, good move! The Fleshlight is just wrong. Wrong! But it would be really cool (and could possibly earn a place in my emergency preparedness kit!) if it actually lit up, too! :P

  5. Yeah, but they don't have 'Mischief Night' in the U.S. (November 4th) - It's when all the kids who were so lame in thinking up a trick for halloween use the preceeding days to scheme the perfect shock and awe scenario with military precision.
    This can range from 'Knock-a-door Run!' and the pulling up of your rose bushes to Bangers through the letterbox and a flaming bag of dogshit on your step, with which you only have one option - stamp on it.
    Ewww!
