burn him!!

Spotted this morning: the big flatbed truck holding the disassembled-not-yet-assembled Zozobra, en route to Fort Marcy Park. Escort (with lights + sirens going) of a fire department SUV in front, four cop cars following. Lots of honking.

Like last year, Bram will miss it. Unlike last year, I'll have some company; Jett + ShRiek have invited me to come with them. I'll be meeting up with them at their place around 7:00.

Of course, it's raining right now.

damn damn damn... need a little more warning, I have some stuff that really needed to go in that fire. Please, next year can you give notice about 10 days out?

oooh, this brings back such fond memories of the controversial wording from last year's post. Please channel some angst from me into your bundle this year, wouldya??!!

There was no bundle this year, although I suppose I could have written some names on a piece of paper...
It was, well... a wacky night. I'll work up a post about it later today.

oh, and Sherry, you said you'd come and deliver your bundle-o-gloom personally!

True...honestly it was the chocolate cake that was calling to me, not so much the burning thing. This year the burning was the draw.
