Betty Crocker, Halloween and Full Moons
That's my little Goth Betty Crocker bandmate. I go off for a gig for a couple of hours, and she turns into the Iron Chef, hee-hee...It's one of the things I adore about her, can't wait to see what this Halloween Party looks like, our Malena does not mess around when it comes to the most important Holiday of the year!
I remember last year at Halloween, I had seen the reel of 13 Nights of Fright and found Malena's website, and started reading her journal and articles and thinking that it sounded like such a great time, like she was one of the funnest people ever and really knew how to do up Hallween right. Truth be told I thought , " that girl is the spirt of Halloween and I really really want to know her " ( mirror, mirror....)
It was another 6 weeks before I got over my shyness enough to send her a letter.
The rest , as they say, is history.
The gig last night was a strange one, lots of people there, but they sort of sat like Zombies, until the song was over then they clapped like the world was over, they didn't much talk to eachother , just sat and listened, but it didn't seem like they were enjoying themselves, tho I guess they were. Paul asked at one point " Are we the only ones drinking in here? "
Then we got to the third set, and everyone who was left was mightily drinking, ye gads. Someone started sending up Bourban shots to the stage, and as the one member of the band who doesn't drink, I was fine, but the rest of the stage was getting pretty happy. Full on madness I say, madness. I am a girl of extreems , but for gigs give me an even night where people are happy and just having some fun. Not that I mind full on Madness. Madness has it's place to be sure.
How close are we to the full moon? And what will tonights little darlings turn out to be?
Come down to Charlies pub tonight if you're around and we can find out....It would be nice to see you. Each and all of you. In the flesh or spirit.
Love and Moon Madness, Lorraine
