Trick or Treat

You don't get a lot of things in this part of the world, like the bare necessities; water, magetsi/electricity, flour...okay, i could go on. But today, what i want to whinge about, is that NOBODY, other than the odd US national residing in these parts, celebrates Halloween. I get all sorts of bogus responses ranging from, "I don't believe in worshipping pagan holidays" to "Hallow-what?".

All i want is an opportunity to get dressed up is all, couldn't be bothered that its a pagan holiday...if you are gonna get technical about it, Christmas is a pagan holiday as its celebrated on same day as Ra, the Sun God's day (thank Constantine for that one).

Otherwise, can't believe there are 2mths until the end of the year, *eeeek* And judging by the excess amount of emails i am receiving during working hours from around the globe, the happy/silly season has begun and productivity levels at work are dropping steadily. Long lunches are the order of the day, as is getting in late and leaving early.... If only my dragon-lady boss would hitting one of her MIA stunts that she's so good at doing so i can hightail it home earlish *sigh*
