A long time coming

And so it comes, that the term is past,
at once so slow,
at twice so fast,
across the fields and hills  and dales,
the children laugh and skip with gale,
they are free at last to frolic and play,
free at last to live and love to the end of day,
and with the sun the trees grow leaves,
with flowers amidst the backyard eves,
though yet that they be full of merry,
for now is time of honey and berry,
I look forward and back and weep,
for I know it cannot last.

Yes, the holidays are here, and it is a fast-moving time of year (would you look at that, I'm still rhyming). Already comic book month has past, and already October is nearly here. There are a couple of big things on the way.

The first is of course the Hallow's eve library thing, on the 26th of October. It looks to be the standard Hallow's eve gathering, with lots of sugar and will cater to all your ancient pagan needs, from ceremonial paints and furs, stone edifices and sacred herbs and flowers to sacred circles (stones, powder, sticks or blood), bonfires (tweed effigies optional) and sacrifices. The gods will be pleased this year...

Also bring a plate. For sugar.

The other big thing happening soon is of course ARMAGEDDON! The pop culture expo every labor weekend that's about the closest thing we ever get to comic-con.

In other news, I have just discovered the most delightful new youtube channel, hosted by a friend of mine. Put your hands together for the ranting stylings of TaylerSivewright07!

The next gathering will perhaps be on the 11th. It will be in the holidays, and what will happen there exactly is a mystery. I do know one thing though, there'll be sugar. And drinks. And maybe even chips (hint hint).

I am also confronted by a dilemma of what to read next. Should I continue my Crusade of Classic Literature(tm), start on one of the gritty crime novellia I was given way way way back in June, or a third option of one of the other books I was given way way way way way way way way back in Christmas. Decisions decisions. Do leave a comment with your recommendation, I woul-Bfffssssshhhhhh ohhohohohohohohoho ahahahahahahahahahah! Oh dear I couldn't keep a straight face for that. As if anyone ever reads this thing, let alone comments on it.

Anywhich, that be all for now, I must leave to do battle with the forces of evil (from a certain point of view). Exunt!
