I will begin this little narrative by plainin' that about 5 years ago the MISSUS had decided that she wanted to buy a house. So, I was dragged 'round town to look at several existing properties. I looked at this and that, gave the dear girl my opinions. Eventually, some offers were made and finally one of these was agreed upon. I must further 'plain that this hood is populated by many elderly people of Northern European decendency.

I know it is almost Halloween, making recent knowledge a kind of comical coincedence. My closest neighbors, are moving out after 40 years of residence with 2 ghosts, as I have been told. It turns out my neighbors are wiccans and practice witchcraft of some sort. They are going to perform a "passover" or an exorcism, allowing the ghosts to leave the house.

I've noticed that the neighbors on my other side are a little eccentric, also. My mind has become to wander to the realization that I AM SURROUNDED BY WITHCES. And I think it is kind of cool. I just hope I haven't been the subject of some kind of spell. Happy Halloween my friends.

I feel this way sometimes too but it has nothing to do with a cult.

"My mind has become to wander to the realization that I AM SURROUNDED BY WITHCES. And I think it is kind of cool. I just hope I haven't been the subject of some kind of spell."

The first sign is that you start to think it's cool. The second is that you have the desire to spend large sums of money in a Bose store!

Seriously, can you send your neighbors over here to excise the "uneven bass" demons from my listening room?

Well, hate to be serious, but wiccan (ism?) is not your traditional evil-devil-worshipping-spell-casting type of witch. I'm not sure why they use the word (probably a reclamation of some type)

The ghost thing is really freakin' weird, though.

Wicca/wiccanism.

Neopagan, earth-centric religion with Celtic roots.

I beg the forgiveness of any Wiccans who may have read this. I only included the words witches and spells for comical effect. I have also been informed that the word "cleansing" should be inserted in place of "passover."

Oh, i figured, but as I went to Berkeley, I'm painfully politically correct. Of course, there was that weird night when we met a witch....
