Well my little weeklong World Goth party is doing very well, better than expected.
I sent out invites and said pot luck, choose what days to come and nearly everyone has or is coming everyday--Saturday and Sunday completely filled up.
I had thought that a number of my friends and some family members would be gone over Memorial Weekend but it seems that I have provided a relatively inexpensive alternative, it is keeping me busy but I do have some help.
Monday evening was still a bit warmish so we set up the plasma screen outside to watch our opening offerings, but Tuesday things were getting very cool so it was moved to the main parlor with folks sitting on the floor or stretched out with black and white picnic cloths set all over the rugs, for the rest of the week it will be indoors because of the turn in the weather to chilly. The food spread will still be buffet style with pot luck in the dinning room. And the movie watching will be indoors.
At last night's gathering we took a moment to say a prayer for those who lost their lives at the Manchester bombing, one of my friends who has connections in England is going to find out if there is a fund to help the victims and will announce it at the Sunday gathering.
A dear friend of mine who is a marvelous baker has designed the birthday cake, chocolate with raspberry filling, the frosting will be black with red designs to resemble blood and white skulls, to say Happy Birthday Peter, Chris and Vince.
But for Sunday, I've been asked by a number of people to add one more film to the line up and this is in memory of the late Sir Roger Moore, 007 from 1973 to 1985 in 7 James Bond movies, one quote of his goes like this:
Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from
the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating
In a way there are parents that also need to learn that to be good examples to their children. Roger Moore as Bond and as Simon Templar (The Saint 1963-69) and as Beau Maverick (the English Cousin to Bart and Brett) showed that in all his performances, he even spoofed himself in one of the last "Pink Panther" movies when the bandages were removed to show his face. He was considered one of "Nature's true gentlemen'. His passing was a shock to both Sis and myself, I considered him a more romantic James Bond, compared to Sean Connery's killer James Bond.
So the James Bond movie that I will be adding will be "The Man With the Golden Gun" with Christopher Lee, we will lead off with that.
Then on the following Monday evening as Doyle, Sis and I relax from the fun of our Goth week we will watch "A View To A
Kill" with Christopher Walken showing all the views of San Francisco as
well as Dunsmuir House that was featured in "Burnt Offerings".
It is a lovely way to have a kick off to Summer.
