One Tuesday evening most folks were able to make it to the
annuall SpinDizzy Halloween Costume Party (TM). Like last
year, the residents of 1313 Mockingbird Lane were the hosts, and
had gone to special efforts to make the place even more dark and
dusty than usual. Although my buffer gave out, I can
report that everyone who attended had a good time.
Unfortunately, I can't really describe the costumes. None the
less, the following evening, which was really October
31st...Halloween, some folks came to The Pumpkin Patch (The Rose
Garden) in costume. PatchO'Black handed out marshmellows
as treats. There was brief discussion of T. P.ing the SED
HQ, but nothing came of that. The Pumpkin Patch was quite nice,
and the 'Peanuts' references were not overlooked. All and
all, Halloween was a lot of fun on SpinDizzy, and folks are
already discussing the party next year.
Of Wallaby Bashing Unknown
||Saturday night in
the Rose Garden, the usual amount of opinion expressed
concerning Morticon, local Wallaby and alleged leader of the SED,
seemed to be more pronounced and vitriolic than usual. After a
remark concerning Wallabies' lack of tastes, Rown, local Centaur
was heard to say, "Well, one of these days someone will be lucky enough to get him on the barbie and will be able to tell just how well his tastes are. :-p"
. o O ( Ah! The celebrity roast, this week's celebrity? Morticon! )
Alicia said, "I'll be roastmaster n.n"
Argon, local Centaur asked, "So, what's the deal with Morticon, how come everyone seems *especially* mad at him tonight?"
Times thought, . o O ( The God & Devil Show: This week's special guest: Morticon! )
Rown relied, "I'm not mad at him!" Argon asked, "Ok...so why are you mad at the SED?"
Alicia noted, "I'm hiding from him, as Rown continued, "Rown is dipping into the centaur wine again, he ain't mad at no one! Well, except Hercules. :-p
Mouser thinks, . o O ( Drunk as
a... well, drunk as a Centaur, I guess. ) "
Rown replied, "It's only for medicinal purposes
Mouser. :-p" Times mrowlls,
"So, Rown? You taste like centaur wine? ;> Rown
says, "No, Merlot. Rown drinks only the classy stuff. :-)
Rown then folded his legs and laid down
and gave Mouser a patpat and gave the Fursnake a Gerbil. Mouser
So who knows what was up with Morticon,
Rown and the rest (The Professor and Mary Ann were unavailable
for comment. Perhaps Rown can tell us later, after some
hot coffee and a cold shower.
||'You've Got Chulo' And
Other Chulo References
Ok, so I'm looking at my email and complaining about all the
spam, in fact, I thought this one was kind of cool
http://www.spindizzy.org/sdpromo.txt even if it is
spam. So Royce or Natasha make a reference to 'Chulo' and
the following began:
Argon says, "Hot young Chulos waiting
for you. Refinance your Chulo. Get your Chulo on the top search
engines." Boki squalls, "You should read
this to get 50,000 chulos fast!" Dellway chrrphisses,
"$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ LOSE CHULOS NOW!! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$" Boki squalls, "For 76 cents a day
you can save a chulo!" Then, Boki squalls, "Two chulos enter,
one chulo leaves!" Argon says, "Thunderchulo!"
Dellway chrrphisses, "Welcome to
Chulodome!"(And finally,) Royce
churrs, "You can never have
too many of those, y'know." Argon says, "Too many
what?" Royce churrs, "Chulos." Natasha puts on her Rolodex earrings,
fuzzes up her headfur, and noses Boki. "We don't need
another chulo. (We need *lots* more chulos.)" It was
all downhill from there.
Vulpnine dissappears! - Huge Gundam Becomes Resident!
During Halloween Alicia Vulpnine seemed to have disappeared
from Spindizzy. The reason she disappeared is unknown and it
seems that nobody knows why she disappeared. Was she
kidnapped? About the same time she disappeared a new resident
popped into SD. A large mecha apparently calling itself "Zephyer"
has appeared recently in the rose garden. Some were questioned
by these events but this monstrous thing has apparently been
giving the nickname Alicia. This by pure coincidence.

published in @Action News. The question is, 'Are

from you. :-)"

sucked into jet engines.""

seems rather shy."
chirps, "Weasels are the most noble animals on earth:
sweet, kind, and loving to their young, and fearless in
their defense; brave enough to tackle prey several times
their size; strong enough to win when they do it.
Perfected by Nature over 60 million years, they have never
had to stray far from the ancestral Myacidae, because they
had achieved perfection from the start. In short,
weasels are not bad. :-)"

wuffs, "weasles are ok measles are evil"
chrrphisses, "Ferrets...qoons with anorexia :o)"
squeaks softly, "You could be democratic or
utilitarian about it and say that Weasles are bad if most
people think they are. But if you want my opinion, I'm
more likely to get into a debate over what makes anything
good or bad than I am to decide something like that. I'm
indecisive, after all, and I stand by my position in being
a moral skeptic. ;)"
Procedures for Submitting Articles
||Submitting a story
or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org,
or qmail or page Argon or Maxl about it.
Most any type of story or article will be excepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair
game. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
