A little pre-holiday festiveness.

Seeing as most of you thought it was too early for the Christmas theme I decided to make a small change that was Thanksgiving related.

So there.

  1. It’s absolutely FRIGGIN’ fabulous and milk squirting out my nose funny!

    Made my day, may in fact make my whole week!


  2. ‘Howdy Pilgrim’.  Though, I have to admit my first thought was ‘Les the Leprechaun’.  Can’t wait to see what goodies the next month has in store.  Hilarious.

  3. Someone’s gonna call you Amish again, Les. Just wait and see.

    And this time they’ll have every reason to.

  4. But you’re an atheist and the pilgrims were very religious smile

    Nice subtle change. I’m guessing you’ll add a Santa Hat next month (oops did I ruin a suprise?).

  5. uh, festive?  I guess… wouldn’t want to meet you lurking in a dark alley in that getup, though…

  6. MoldyPillow, I think you’re the first person to do a flash animation in my honor. Was that an Ash quotation I heard in the soundtrack for that?

    Thanks everyone for the kind words on my choice of hats. I thought it seemed appropriate for the holiday. Dante, it’s true that last year I used a pic of me in a Santa hat, but it’s an actual new picture rather than just the same one dressed up. I’m told that I make a rather chilling Santa. I’m hoping to do a bit more this year, but I can always fall back on what works if the muse doesn’t come.

  7. Pardon my ignorance, but who the hell is Guy Fawkes? And is it a good thing that I look somewhat like him in that hat? wink

  8. Guy Fawkes led the plot to blow up Parilment in 1605 (known as the Gunpowder Plot). On the night of the 5th of November he and others were caught finishing off setting up 36 barrels of gunpowder in the celler. They were tourtured and executed.

    So for some reason, every November 5th, we Britsh set off fireworks, and burn effigies of Fawkes on bonfires. It’s commanly known as Bonfire Night. Whether we’re celebrating his capture, or what he tried to do I have no idea.

    Hope this helps expand your already vast knowledge.

    Nice hat btw wink

  9. Oh geez. I was just telling Momma that I was hoping it’d turn out to be a roguishly handsome actor, but noooooo… has to be some 17th century version of a terrorist.

    I’d heard the name before, but couldn’t for the life of me remember why or in regards to what.

  10. Whats worse that they were doing it becuase of the poor way that the previous protestantKing and the new protestant Queen were treating Catholics such as themselves. The act was to coincide with the Queen’s visit to Pariliment.

  11. Thanks Jim, you beat me to it before I returned!
    The plot was actually against King James I (the psycho one, not the one with the spaniels, James II).

    Sorry to get your hopes up, Les raspberry

  12. Self-portrait. Taken by the light of my computer monitor, literally. I turned off the flash on my digital camera, leaned forward a bit and started snapping away.

    That’s what I used last year. I’m still trying to come up with something a bit more original for this year.

  13. Les- In that Santa getup you remind me of the perennial favorite “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”.

    You better watch out
    you better not cry,
    you better not pout I’m tellin’ you why,
    Santa Claus is coming to town,
    He’s makin’ a list, checkin’ it twice,
    He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice,
    Santa Claus is coming to town

    He knows when you are sleeping
    He knows when you’re awake
    He knows when you’ve been bad or good
    So be good, for goodness’ sake

    You better watch out
    you better not cry,
    you better not pout I’m tellin’ you why,
    Santa Claus is coming to town

    If recited in a suitably creep voice, this is bloodchilling.
