Halloween Part 3
Today felt a lot like Sunday, for me anyway. Very tired after the fun of last night and the staying up way too late. Got a lot done tho, always good, and made great Indian Food and watched Stardust with a friend. Perfect.
Not sure just how long I can stay awake tonight, and I have to be up early, so I will take my own advice, and toddle off to bed soon.
I wish I had an adventure to tell you of, but alas, some nights you just get adventured out. Ah wait, this made me laugh. Boss did a Thing at one point where a lot of Writers wrote the end to the sentence "Death is..." I don't remember exactly what it was for but he wrote "....when you don't have to write anymore."
Apparently not, according to this review Sally sent me from The Age...
"by Francis Atkinson....
"When Neil Gaiman dies - and I hope that's a long way off - I wouldn't be surprised if he just keeps on writing. So prolific is his output, I can't imagine anything, including death, stopping him from sharing his remarkable talent. This latest novel for readers 10 and up (its also been re-jacketed for adults) tells the haunting tale of Nobody Owens (Bod for short), a little boy whose parents were murdered by Jack the Man. On that terrible night, Bod, who was just a toddler, managed to find his way to the local graveyard. Now seven years old, Bod has been educated by a group of local spirits who care for him and keep the madman that murdered his folks at bay. Gaiman is a gifted story teller who infuses his work with wit, tenderness and just the right amount of chills. Outstanding.
And, stretching out The Most Wonderful Night Of The Year one more evening...More Fiendish Pictures!
Love an Sleepies, Magic, and Fiends,
