Not Paella [Nov. 1st, 2009|08:26 am]
Tony Grist
I took a look at online paella recipes, realised I didn't have the ingredients- and settled for a fish risotto instead.

We didn't get any trick-or-treaters last year- and we didn't get any this year either. That's because ours is now a Muslim street.

I dreamed I had a ghost in my bed. It was attached to a particular blanket. I got rid of it by throwing the blanket out the window.

That's sweet. The Muslim kids round here don't seem to have woken up to Halloween yet.

Cross-cultural Halloween

Thanks for that. It inspired me to post something on my blog.

That's wonderful.

Your dream reminds me of the end of the TV adaption of "Whistle and I'll Come To You"

You know what, I think that movie might well have inspired the dream. Or maybe the inspiration comes from the original M.R. James short story- which is even scarier.

Trick 'n treat

How common is that trick or treat stuff in Britain?

I never saw it in the two years I was there, but that was a long time ago. Is it American cultural influence?

Re: Trick 'n treat

I can't judge how common it is, but the newspapers are full of articles about it- for and against. Halloween has certainly grown in importance down the years. When I was a kid it was really no big deal.
