Something wicked…

“fae ghosties an’ ghoulies an’ lang-legged beasties

an’ things that go bump in the nicht… guid lord, deliver us”

Taking a short break from dusting off the broomstick and chatting to my familiar Tuppence to check which of my favourites will be coming to the Witches Ball tonight….

Hate the movie, but it's always fun to see her face when we sing the song... All together now...'Ooh-ooh, the witch is dead...'

OK, it's debatable if the witches from The Crucible really qualify...but they look like they need cheering up...

No party would be complete without a Professor...wonder if she dances?

When shall we three meet again? (Note: three. Paige never did fit in...) Did you know...that the costume designer for Charmed also did the outfits for Jessica Fletcher? Truly frightening!

  1. Love it! I’ve spent the day making Fiendish fairy cakes, carving a pumpkin (thank Goodness we don’t use turnips any more – nae neaps, remember?) and preparing goodie bags for the influx of witches, wizards, ghaisties and ghoulies I expect tonight. Before that, I have to survive the after-school club’s Hallowe’en party.
    Happy haunting all!

  2. 😆 Haha! Never know what fun FEF is planning next! (Enjoyed the…thingy at the top. But I do wonder what goes bump in the night?)

    Okay…

    How couldn’t you like The Wizard of Oz? Goodness! It’s a professorish classic, for sure. That witch still gives the professor the willies.

    😆 Watched the clip. Definitely the best cackle. But…did you see how gloriously she walked about?

    Not familiar at all with this one. But a hanging is always interesting.

    You really shouldn’t invite her. Maybe her mother, though?

    FEF’s being a gnome again! I’m starting to fear for the poor ones that show up at your door…

    Seriously on a stamp? Fascinating! (What queen? Probably so.)

    Do they have anything to do with Burns?

    You know, the professor would like a crown and fur robe just like that. But I think I’ll pass on the ice throne. (But did she like the Turkish Delight?)

    Hmm… 😆 At first, the professor had no idea who that was, but I found out. How completely vexing! Maybe it does dance, and maybe FEF will dance with it!

    Not sure about this one. Are they supposed to be witches? If so, definitely from Egypt. Egyptian Witches, how neat.

    • Haha! Glad you enjoyed it! Generally what goes bump in the night around here is Tommy being chased off the bed by the fiendish Tuppence!

      Sorry, The Wizard of Oz is a no-no – possibly because it was the big Christmas movie every year for about a thousand years over here. But I did like the witch…

      😆 Not as gloriously as the Professor though!

      Yes, Elvira was definitely more wicked than goody-goody Sam…

      Fear not – I usually don’t eat more than one… 😈

      Yes, really on a stamp. Our own dear Queen – whose head seems to be floating in a disembodied kind of way in the corner…

      No, but if you not careful I’ll start quoting Burns again…

      She would be a poor substitute for my dear C-W-W, but he can’t come since he’s not a witch…as far as we know… (cue Mr Fish’s spooky music…)

      You don’t know the gorgeous Charmed Ones?? So much to learn, o ageless one… the 😎 est witches ever!

      • Poor Tommy. He might have to come stay with the professor and Bob.

        Christmas movie? Goodness. Jingle all the Way is better, I’m sure.

        Well, she had a couple glorious moments. I’d have to practice some of those moves.

        Wasn’t her name Endora?

        *gulps doubly*

        Haha, I think you’re right! (You should put the professor on your stamps.)

        I like when you quote Burns and speak Scottish. 😀

        The professor is most definitely not a witch, sir! How could you say such things…

        Never heard of them. Hmm… Timeless not ageless. The professor is older than you think, and younger than you expect.

        • I suspect he might find Bob as scary as Tuppence, poor boy!

          Who was Elvira then? (pause while I google) You’re righter, of course…but Google sheds no light on Elvira – I’m sure there was a witch of that name in something. Hmm…

          (I will, just as soon as I’m crowned…)

          You may come to regret saying that…but here’s a wee bit o’ Burns just for you for Hallowe’en…

          ‘…He scre’d the pipes and gart them skirl,
          Till roof and rafters a’ did dirl.–
          Coffins stood round, like open presses,
          That shaw’d the dead in their last dresses;
          And by some develish cantraip slight,
          Each in its cauld hand held a light…’

          A warlock then? A leprechaunish warlock of course…

          Apologies, o timeless one! (Charmed was probably aimed more at girlies, admittedly, but still great fun…)

  3. I got one witch, one zombie, one Dracula, one pirate skeleton, various Disney princesses, a pumpkin and a telly-tubbyI No HP, for the first time in years.
    Endora was Samantha’s mother in Bewitched, I think.

  4. Happy Halloween!! These were all wonderful, but the Hansel and Gretel bit was my favorite, hands down. I have a feeling that will be one of those things that sticks in my head, i.e., every year when I take my son trick-or-treating I will wonder whether *this* is the door behind which lurks the witch.

  5. I love this time of year. Hope you had a fun night. we actually got some trick or treaters–the first in London! And one was dressed as a witch. Can’t beat the classics.

    • Very quiet here – it always is, but even quieter than usual last night. May have been something to do with the rain and wind! (Or the sign on the door saying ‘I eat children’… 😉 )
