Hi Iris! I'm good over here; my acting class ends tomorrow night, so I'll be off to the second phase, or level, or whatever you call it. Last week we did scenes out of Barefoot in the Park (which just happens to be a movie I love, so I was pleased with that), and before that some Theater of the Absurd; real fun stuff. And we all got specially-tailored monologues that complement our strengths and weaknesses, to perform tomorrow, so I've got one from Talley & Son by Lanford Wilson. Just stuff like that happening around here. The weather is pretty gloomy. My sister's planning a Christmas party. Not long from now, the holiday movie season begins and I'll have to be running from theater to theater to catch up with everything. My other sister (the pregnant one) is back in England. My other, other sister is in Colorado. Life is pretty good.

But enough about me; how is everybody else? :hihi:

I don't understand it at all…I don't even know what to say anymore when something awful like this happens - I mean, these were such innocent people, and the fact that someone could just walk in and kill them like that - gods, every day it gets harder and harder to believe in humankind…and yet, after tragedies like this one, we see the people who show their support by coming out to help. So I continue to believe we can still change the way things are going, even when life looks so bitter and horrible; because there are always good people. Most people are good. We have to show that we support the good in this world by coming out to support the families of those who were killed, and by doing everything in our power to make sure evil things like this don't happen again. A message to those of you who live in America: Vote! Vote for the candidates who will support restrictions on guns, and candidates who will give to bigotry no sanction.
That's all I can say. I'm still in shock. It still feels so close, so near; I am not Jewish, but I and my family went to a synagogue near us for a long time, and we became close friends with the rabbi there: and to think of people like him, and his amazing and lively community, massacred…it makes me sick. :cry2:
And I'm so sorry for you, Cock-Robin!

Such sad news about those poor people. Seriously, guns should be banned. I know it is part of your constitution but that was written when you were at war with the Brits, centuries ago. I heard someone say that the people in the synagogue should have had guns so they could defend themselves. Who takes a gun to temple or church? Why should they need to?

Okay, off soap box now.

Today my office is dressing up for Halloween. Have never bothered before 'cause its more a US thing. But I am dressed as a Nazgul, a Ringwraith, neither living nor dead. But most don't understand that so I can double as a Dementor. And no, Expecto Patronum does not get rid of me.

That was our…well, I don't really like to call him "president", but whatever he is, dictator, tyrant, etc., he believes that. He also thinks all teachers should be armed. I take it from your words that you're not from America, notlistening? If so, you're very very lucky. :) This country has an obsession with guns – and it's not from our constitution. I've read our constitution: it does not say that citizens should be allowed to keep guns, it talks about the need for a well-armed local militia, like police, at a time when our country was still threatened by others.

Anyway, your costume sounds fantastic! I love both Ringwraiths and Dementors! :D

Poor Tooks, no more typing now!! or scrolling.

Thor'n, no indeed, I am not an American. I'm from Australia. We don't have many issues with guns and rarely do our police officers draw their weapons. My friend who is a PO, draws the capsicum spray if needed, though she does live in the outback and people are more bogan out there (um, that's kinda like rednecks.)

Sounds like a great costume nl. We weren't allowed to do costumes at the office where I used to work, but I have a few Halloween themed T-shirts that I would wear with my scrub pants and jacket. I was allowed to do that.

Oddly enough I did not hear any Trick-or Treaters on the street last night. Of course it was raining like crazy.

Maybe they all went to a dryer neighborhood. :P

October is over now, so what's up for November/

Sorry I didn't do much remembering for MoME. Tooks found some great pics though. Ahhhh yes. Good times. :D

Shall we remember MoST this month or no? I'll try to get here more often, but RL does get in the way.

Tookish definitely found some crazy pics there: I love the Haldir one, actually.

No trick-or-treaters on my road either; a lot of the people in my town go to a town-sponsored event where everybody hands out candy from the trunks of their cars, instead of kids having to go door-to-door. So instead they all just walk around the town green. And it doubles as a sort of costume parade too.

nl does have an Aussie accent. And I suspect she would say I have an (eastern) American accent. :D

But I certainly do not sound like those folks up in Boston!!! ;)

Ok, so what do we do for November? Maybe we should save MoST remembrances for February??? That is the usual MoST month. :D

Well, I never feel like I have an accent – my grandfather said I had the Connecticut accent, which I didn't even know existed. Personally, I've always wanted either an Australian or a Southern (American) accent.

Time travel? Space travel? Under the sea?

Or have we already done all those before?
