Ahhhhrrrr....On a pirate ship

Hey! I just wanted to tell everyone in Minneapolis/St. Paul hello. I do love coming out there. It's kind of like being on a pirate ship. Everyone is happy, loud, sincere and has a filthy mouth. Well, not everyone. Lorraine is always perfect. When I am with you guys, I can totally be myself. You don't care if I'm wearing my spongebob jammies at the goodbye party or if I sing a wrong note. (Not that I plan to do either of those any time soon, but, hey...it's real rock n roll loven' baby) I feel like you are my extended family and I miss you all. When I listen to the LaM rough mix, I remember what fun we had recording. I've NEVER laughed so hard in my life... Adam and LEO!
You all inspire me in so many ways. As you know, in real life I am rather shy. Yes, a true recluse! Being around all these outgoing, crazy, fun, cool people reminds me to let loose and have fun a little more often.
So, get ready to rock! I'll be out there on the weekend of the 23rd, screaming in the front row, "Fab u lous Lorraine! Fab u lous Lorraine! Along with 2000 other crazed-half drunk pirates, lords and ladies, and dudes dressed as "Zorro the gay blade". Haaaaaaa Zaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!

I'll talk like a gypsy pirate with you that Sunday. Glad to know you'll be in town! I'm going to make a point of going out to Fest in costume so I can say "hi", or rather, "fair madam, (Xena warrior cry)"

Here's to dancing barefoot in a field!

Have fun! Goodness my life seems tame at the moment by comparison... I just had my birthday and am probably suffering from post-party slump (and am forbidden by the Diet Fairies to eat any more cake, which also doesn't help).

You do start your Hallowe'en planning early... it isn't even October yet. But the first Hallowe'en decorations and masks are visible in the shops here. I thought of you!

(Appleblossombeck darling, what in the name of the wee man is a crock pot? Just a china casserole, or is there more to it than that? Explanation needed... :) )

A crock pot is an electric slow cooker, many just set to either low or high temp, and may have a removabe ceramic insert for easier washing. They're nice for cooking in all day - put the food in the pot in the morning, plug it in, and dinner is ready in the evening. Appleblossombeck, that recipe did sound yummy... I may have to dust mine off

It*is* yummy, y'all...My in-laws went to Barbados and came back with the Best Pork Recipe (except for my mead pork) and the Perfect Rum Punch Recipe. You should set the crock pot to high for about 30 minutes per pound of meat, but the longer you leave it, the better it is. All this talk of Halloween has got me craving wassail and apple! Does anyone here still try to trick or treat? I go with my (younger) sisters, and this year I believe I'm going as the Whoming Willow.

Thank you for the crock pot gen! You are the fount of all wisdom, you guys. And I want to know how the Whomping Willow costume is going to work.

Hallowe'en is such fun... In Scotland we call trick-or-treating "guising" (pronounced as in disguising) and the last time I did it was maybe 12 years ago, alas, although the effects are with me yet (I plastered my bangs back to be Morticia, and liked the effect enough to grow them out. Haven't changed hairstyle since).

It's always been quite a big thing in Scotland, whereas I believe Guy Fawkes Night was always more important in England (until recently). We don't play tricks, but you have to do a "turn" before you get money or sweeties. Sing a song, or tell some jokes or something.

"There was an old witch,
Believe it if you can,
She jumped out the window and she ran, ran, ran,
She leapt on her broomstick and she took to the sky,
On Hallowe'en night when the witches ride."

I learned that when I was 5 (still remember the tune, too). I need to find some children to take guising, dammit! Think my brother would come? He's, ehm, only 21.

I'm going to try the crockpot recipe! Miles would love that. Yes, I do look forward to Halloween. My closet consists of 90% Halloween/Stage clothes 10% normal stuff. My daughter is 12 now and I'm hoping she will still want to go Trick or Treating. IF not, there's always grown up parties...or I could throw my own. He he he. My diet fairies are marching proudly in the kitchen as well. I have to stay as thin as possible for my film work. I still look boom boom curvy on camera even when I'm a rail. I must go to a Guy Fawkes party soon. I'll have to ask Lorraine about that.

Alas, no halloween parties here, and sadly i live too remote for trick or treaters. My 15 yr old still goes out and has a ball (specifically not with her mom) BUT I always throw a party for my college students and we devote the afternoon to fun and devilishly artistic endeavors with treats and costumes. I may have to order the fishnet top from Kates, it's too cool and would look great with the rhinestone fishnets I just got! How bout a blog party for us poor souls? (hint hint) And speaking of yummy food, you all are lucky to have diet fairies, mine are closer to sadistic demons...

I think that a Blog party might be just the thing. I'll be in LA with Malena and we could all write and go back and forth, or IM or even a webcam thing. Not sure how that works, I'll have to talk to Malena, but we could be on the cam and talk to everyone anyway....What fun!!!!

I am half way thru a post about the most exhausting weekend ever, trying to write but my brain won't work...

I like crock pots, tho a few years ago the kitchen got remodeled and I had to cook off a hot plate and a crock pot and my Boss said he neever wanted anything out of one ever again. I think enough time has passed tho....

Well, the Whomping Willow costume goes like this: I wear some slinky green shirt, a brown skirt, and I braid lots willow branches into my hair, because willow is one of the only trees that responds well to pruning. Then I carry around a baseball bat. I tried it out for the local first showing when the last Potter filk came out, and it went over pretty well. Some people I knew put on fatigues and carried wands and were Dumbledore's Army.

A LaM blog party? Oh yeah! I'm all over it like black eyeliner! I'll start figuring out how to make it happen. I will set up my webcam and Lorraine and I can visit with you on Yahoo or AIM. I'll post the user name etc. Then we can all put on our costumes and get rocken'..LaM style. What a Diva you are Ivenotime!

awwww, gee whiz (blushing, rubbing toe in ground, toe is now black and nail polish chipped. closed shoes for class and its gonna be 90)no one ever called me a diva before. BUT that will be so much FUN! YEH!

Would love to see you both at the Minn Ren Fest, but 1) it's a little far to go with a 4 year old and a 22 1/2 month old even following I-35 most of the way, and 2) my family and I will be in Seattle starting vacation. ::sigh:: Oh well, at least my husband and I may get to see "Serenity" and/or "Mirrormask" together without it being at a drive-in while there. Grandparents are wonderful things, but my daughters don't get to see theirs much, so it will be a good trip. :)

 
At 2:06 AM , Blogger K said...

Ariandalen, that heartfelt sigh! I feel the same way about BaltiCon, which I am really, really tempted to go to, but happens right after I get married. (I somehow don't think my boyfriend, who isn't into any of this stuff, would really like to spend his honeymoon at a convention.)

I keep trying to come up with ways in which I could contrive to come, but none of them are very convincing. (And I missed the Glasgow con too because that was one of the few times I could get to see my boyfriend - just the way it worked out. Cons and I are evidently not meant for each other.)

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
