Off to the tower with you then. Suspect you may be somewhat less interested in roly poly once you have been drawn.

Jam Roly Poly rolled clockwise is fine; it's those anticlockwiseans that need to be thrown in the tower.

It would be the same as with the sweet and savoury pies.

I've always been suspicious of suet-based food anyway.
Anything that can suddenly turn into tallow or bird feed can't be trusted.

Thankfully bizarre things like suet are rare these days! Go vegetable-based shortening!

Wow.... Old people showed up again.

Hello all!

Sadly I will be in the wrong country on the wrong continent again, but it sounds awesome.

(Why could Jasper not have set his books in Grahamstown?)

Na, he thinks I'm an old crock who is senile and can't hear.

We've got people coming from Oz so he hasn't got an excuse not to come, it's straight up on the same timeline give or take an hour

Ah, but is your Ffiesta friendly to people who don't like people?

Egon Our Ffiesta is your Ffiesta, just a group of people that enjoy Jaspers's books giving you the chance to be silly and enjoy other people being silly. Where else can you dress as Mrs. Danvers and no one takes any notice of you? Would Jasper come to something that wasn't up to his standards?

We excel at being nice to people what ever their persuasion, we just stand them in a corner and point at them if they are naughty.

Geg - Wear a tee shirt that says "I am the Geg" We can get you a phone box to change in. What colour group are you in?

I am green, but have a mother who is red - that should narrow it down, ooh and I'll be the one who looks like Mrs Danvers.

Sadly, unless our situation changes, mrs. SkidMarks & I will only be with you in spirit this time.
