Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

*wiggly fingers for added spookiness*

Mock me at your peril, Picklers, for tonight is the scaaaaaaaaaariest night of the year!

*more wiggly fingers*

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “Oh but Katy Halloween is the 31st October and today is the 28th October so actually it is Tuesday what is the scariest night of the year and tonight isn’t very scary at all so please put your wiggly fingers away for now, okay? Okay. Thanks. Thanks – no, that’s a wiggly finger – that’s better – good girl. Good. Okay? Good. Thanks.”

Well, you are half right. In fact, technically you are entirely right. But I am going to a Halloween party tonight, and I am going in fancy dress. And that is scary on many, many levels. Whereas on Tuesday I will probably not do anything particularly Halloweeny at all. So as far as I am concerned tonight is in fact the scariest night of the year, and I declare a special early Halloween celebration here on Pickled Politics to mark it.

Share with me your dastardly secrets and dark, doomy weekend plans, Picklers, and make sure you do wiggly fingers with it. They add atmosphere.

    I decree that PAKISTAN is officially renamed as CRAPISTAN for the next few days as punishment for yesterdays fiasco.

  2. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 1:43 pm  

    Well, I’m going to go to the seaside and purchase a famous brighton rock off my rasta friend then go scare children.

    id wiggly something else, nawotimean *nudge nudge wink wink*

    i went to fancy dress as a woman and got groped by a group of chinese blokes…they obviously didnt mind the beard

  4. Robert — on 28th October, 2006 at 2:36 pm  

    Yeah, what is it about blokes? Last year I too went to a fancy dress party dressed as a woman, and I got totally groped on the breasts by pretty much everyone. How women cope with that kind of unwelcome attention 24/7/365, I cannot comprehend…

  5. Rakhee — on 28th October, 2006 at 2:50 pm  

    Robert, you’re clearly just a hotty when you dress up as a woman. Ehm, moving on…

    A couple of my girlfriends are going to an event this evening – a new kind of dating set-up thing – its called a ghost hunt walk through central London. I’m told it’s a great way of meeting new people (men). I politely declined but felt like screaming: HELLO??? DO YOU THINK I DON’T MEET ENOUGH SUPERNATURAL FREAKS? I mean, as if I need spend my time going out and actively looking for more. Humph.

    It’s X-Factor night for me this eve (and don’t tell me you haven’t been watching it). Me, my sofa and some good friends eating home made chilli paneer (indian cheese dish). And who knows, maybe the odd ghost might join us….

    ps. Katy, you make me laugh ;)

    @raz: Champion’s Trohpy is crap. BCCI should never be allowed to host any other tournament of this scale.

    I am going in fancy dress. And that is scary on many, many levels. Whereas on Tuesday I will probably not do anything particularly Halloweeny at all. So as far as I am concerned tonight is in fact the scariest night of the year, and I declare a special early Halloween celebration here on Pickled Politics to mark it.

    Grrr.. I’m jealous. Back in Mumbai now, will be taking SAT on 4th Nov. Given that i’ve fucked up my test-preps by procrastinating on my stoodies, i’m studying like mad rite now…

    Robert my man, you have *no* idea what women have to face in India! I can affirm that Britain is waay better than India. Almost all of my female cousins have been “eve-teased” (Indian-English euphemism for varying degrees of sexual molestation.)

    Come on Katy, don’t be coy. What are you dressing up as?

  9. Vikrant — on 28th October, 2006 at 3:27 pm  

    Raz, raz…. i remember you’d cited a story from IndiaDaily, saying how Indian press is obessed with Pakistan… well just check this link!

    I wish I was doing something interesting today! Instead I have to do lots of work unfortunately :(

  11. Kulvinder — on 28th October, 2006 at 4:45 pm  

    Halloween never meant anything to me as a child, and damnit it still doesn’t. American imported crap. I’ll wait for guy fawkes night thankyouverymuch. It has a point; a penny for a guy i don’t mind since my pyromaniac side is satisfied and children do something subversively productive (from the pov of health and safety freaks). But Halloween? whasthepoint? its nothing more than an imported protection racket franchise.

    A friend of mine gave sweets to the hateful little shits that come knocking, the kids threw the quality street sweeties on the floor, swore at him for not giving money and stomped off keying his car on the way. Personally i don’t answer the door anymore.

  12. Kulvinder — on 28th October, 2006 at 4:46 pm  

    bah, humbug! ;)

  13. Don — on 28th October, 2006 at 6:18 pm  

    Kulvinder,

    Finally I can agree with you 100% on something. And what’s with the pumpkins? When I was a kid we had turnips. Ever watch a seven-year old hollow out a raw turnip with a spoon? We had to start in August.

  14. Don — on 28th October, 2006 at 7:34 pm  

    Anyone ever seen a ghost? Any first-person, hand-on-heart ghost stories out there?

  15. Sunny — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:05 pm  

    Nope, and I don’t believe those stories either. Ghosts… pssshh! Such hogwash.

  16. Don — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:09 pm  

    Yeah, that’s what they say, then they go down to the basement …

  17. Katy — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:16 pm  

    … and they never come back…

    or do they?

    *shines torch up into face*

    Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

  18. Sunny — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:18 pm  

    *is a bit worried about Katy*

    Ahem, stop trying to scare me young woman. I’m fearless!

    *takes stick and heads down the basement* :evil:

  19. raz — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:32 pm  

    Hey while we are on a spooky theme:

    Pakistan’s first zombie film!

    http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117951886.html?categoryid=19&cs=1

  20. Don — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:37 pm  

    ‘…midget zombies … produced by an ice cream mogul….Shot for an unspecified sum…’

    I must see this movie!

  21. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:44 pm  

    I see my mum’s gosht everytime she cooks meat

  22. ZinZin — on 28th October, 2006 at 8:46 pm  

    Nice ghosts you have Kismet. Do they do the washing up as well?

  23. Don — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:03 pm  

    That would be a Grogoch.

    Sunny’s been a long time in the basement. Maybe someone should go check.

  24. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:08 pm  

    ZinZin, you didn’t get my cunning ghost/gosht reference did you? I know this because I overheard you asking the difference between arranged & forced marriages the other day. I like overhearing things.

  25. ZinZin — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:14 pm  

    I thought it was a spelling mistake. But do enlighten me.

    I like overhearing things too. But not always.

  26. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:19 pm  

    This’ll crack you up. I mean, really. You better get your sewing kit on the ready cos you’ll be in stitches and have your sides split all at the same time. Ready?

    See, in our lingo, gosht means… wait for it… meat. Usually cow’s meat, but lamb’s meat too, I’m spoling it by explaining it too much, but anyway, yeah, gosht, sounds a bit like… ghost.

    Geddit?

    Tikka chance on me?

    You gotta fight for your right (to chappati)?

    Korma blimey.

    I’ll get me coat…

    (yes, I have no girlfriend)

  27. ZinZin — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:22 pm  

    Puntastic

  28. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:29 pm  

    Did you know a djin is like a muslim holy ghost? so, on the pun tip, that’d make zinzin make you a double whammy on the spooky stakes

  29. Kismet Hardy — on 28th October, 2006 at 9:32 pm  

    Go to sleep little children, or zinzin will come get you. Dunno bout my kids, but I just shat myself

    The power of the djin compels you. Ego te absolvo in nomine Patris, et Filiii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

    NOT A SINGLE COMMENTER has done wiggly fingers on this thread.

    Not one.

    By the power vested in me by the mighty Cheops, you will rue the day you forgot to do wiggly fingers in my spooky thread!

    Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    *wiggly fingers*

  32. Sahil — on 29th October, 2006 at 1:15 am  

    It’s my birthday on Monday!!!!! I’ll turn into a hamster :)

  33. Sunny — on 29th October, 2006 at 2:00 am  

    We’ll leave the wiggly fingers to you!

  34. ZinZin — on 29th October, 2006 at 10:34 am  

    Happy Birthday Sahil.

  35. Jai — on 29th October, 2006 at 11:38 am  

    Katy,

    =>”But I am going to a Halloween party tonight, and I am going in fancy dress. And that is scary on many, many levels.”

    Which means you just went as yourself but without makeup, right ? ;)

    *wiggly fingers*

  36. Jai — on 29th October, 2006 at 11:54 am  

    ^^^Just kidding, by the way. I think Katy’s great and I absolutely love reading her writings. The article at the top of this page is a superb example.

  37. Katy — on 29th October, 2006 at 12:17 pm  

    I love Jai. He did wiggly fingers.

    And I probably am a pretty scary sight without makeup :-(

  38. Clairwil — on 29th October, 2006 at 2:11 pm  

    I hate blogger.

  39. suck-my-chitterjuice — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:01 pm  

    dude! katy! i did wiggly something :)

  40. Sunny — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:06 pm  

    How exactly do you wiggle your fingers? I’m confused about that :|

  41. Katy — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:14 pm  

    That is not the kind of wiggling that I was after, s-m-c. This is a family website, I’ll have you know.

    Sunny, it is a bit like in Wayne’s World when they do a flashback.

  42. Chairwoman — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:16 pm  

    Clairwil – Me too. Nasty blogger refused to post my new post!

  43. Chairwoman — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:16 pm  

    Sorry – wiggly fingers.

  44. Clairwil — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:19 pm  

    We’re not alone Chairwoman. All sorts of bloggers are hopping mad. It seems the problem has been ongoing for nearly two days.

    *wiggly fingers*

  45. Vikrant — on 29th October, 2006 at 3:27 pm  

    Ladies, its about the time you switched over to WordPress…

  46. Sahil — on 29th October, 2006 at 5:21 pm  

    AUUWWWW MY head. Thanks ZINZIN, I’m so hungover!! Hope all of you guys have a great weekend!!

  47. Sunny — on 29th October, 2006 at 8:27 pm  

    Bost uneventful weekend ever I think. Though I won some money at poker on Friday night :)

  48. Katy — on 30th October, 2006 at 12:37 am  

    And the Golden Wiggly Finger Awards for expert finger wiggling go to:

    Me
    Jai
    Chairwoman
    Clairwil

    Honourable mention to suck-my-chitterjuice for wiggling something, even if it wasn’t a finger.

    And also an honourable mention to Kismet, because he is so pun-tastic.
