Please to remember the 5th of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

It's Guy Fawkes / Bonfire Night, and once again, I find myself without parkin.  I am going to have to find some sparklers, and maybe some Roman candles.
I wonder if I could hijack a school kitchen?  Would they let me bake?

Today's an odd holiday: a celebration of the execution of a man who could easily be seen as a hero, especially if you're an anti-monarchist such as myself.  I guess I just rationalize it as a commemoration of the death of a martyr.

If I were in England right now, I could go chubbing, and collect pennies for the Guy, and there would certainly be parkin readily available, and many fireworks.

On the bright side, I get to screen my first film tonight: Space Cadet Adventures!

Ooh!! Congrats!!! That must be really exciting for you! (the screening, not the parkin, although I must say, never having had parkin but having baked a cakey-gingerbread-type-thing that my British-educated-mother says resembles parkin rather more than gingerbread, parkin is quite exciting too....or, the thought of it, anyway)

Alas, the screening of my film failed miserably. The audio was so messed up, you couldn't hear any of the dialogue, and the music nearly blew your head off. Oh well. There's always next month...
