A sort of calm serenity has befallen the Magic Box after the hubbub and excitement of Halloween and for the U.K. posters, bonfire night. A few Halloween decorations remain, mostly spray on cobwebs cling fastly to the windows that they adorn, defusing the autumnal sunshine that beams through them. The crisp, cold air outside reveals the breath of passers by as they hurry to and fro. All huddled with hands buried deep in pockets against the cold. Occasional a passer by glances through the decorated windows of the Magic Box to examine the wares displayed within and wonder; "Just what do people do with those chicken feet?"
As with most things in life, they end and the tranquillity that the Magic box has enjoyed of late has come to an all too short an ending. For in its mist now stands a being with a heart blacker than the darkest winter night and colder than the mini fridge that resides in a corner of the shop. The leather trench coat that drapes of his shoulders hovers inches above the floor, seemingly dripping with evil. He watches the portal that transported him fizzles and gasp its dying breath as it finally dissipates and vanishes. For all the scary decorations that once hung proudly within its walls, depicting ghost, ghouls and monsters of all descriptions, the Magic Box can boast a real source of evil... for its warlock has finally returned.

Well first off I must say a big thank you to those people that I managed to inflict myself upon. I was fortunate to meet that literary genius, mistress of quills and champion of Doz, Mazzy (who travelled in to Manhattan from the back of beyond just to met me) and cab driver extraordinaire and former mayor of the Bronze, Dogmeat. Despite working at the time Dogmeat still found time to pop into Mustang Harry's and shake Mr. Warlock warmly by the throat hand. Although my abiding memory of him will be fishing ice cubes out of a glass of water with a folk. Dogmeat also reminded me of Animal from the Muppet show for some reason, but I mean that in an affectionate way.
In California I was again lucky enough to meet the ever sweet, kind, generous and very Tara like tarasApprentice who also served as Mr. Warlock's part-time chauffeuse and tour guide for which he paid her...well absolutely nothing, but then that's warlocks for you.
I suppose I should also mention that "God" put in an appearance. Whilst we were in Disneyland tarasApp spotted Kris Lemche (a.k.a. cute boy god from Joan of Arcadia) walking with a couple of friends. I have to confess that I completely failed to recognise him but then I don't think he recognised me either so fairs fair.

Okay, it's been pointed out to me that everyone is live journaling these days. So way behind the times (as usual), I shall be unveiling my own live journal just as soon as I've nicked enough stuff of some other people to put in it.

Mazzy : Welcome to my life is a very dark song and not one I'm familiar with, which explains why I didn't recognise it whilst we were in Harry's. In fact it's such a depressing song that I had to listen to some Smith's songs to cheer my self up. Can't say I'm into Eminem either but I do like the way the video for "Just lose it" sends up Michael Jackson

Almond: What you could do is to put a "Thank you" in the personnel column local paper to thank people for the cards and flowers for your brother's funeral. Or if most of them are co-workers from your brother's place of employment, you could send a big thank you card there. If you send it to the personnel department they can circulate it to the relevant work area or pin it to a notice board for them to see.I know that it doen't solve everything but here's a {{{Hug}}} for you.

I'll try to get a review of the musical "Wicked" and "Ju-on: The Grudge" done for Friday, unfortunately people here keep telling me that my vacation is over and that I should think about doing some work....like that's ever gonna happen.
