October 31, 2004
So .. after last thursdays decision by Kostya and Alex to knock on the door of our neighbours to introduce ourselves (being fairly sure they were students and not just regular inhabitants of Leamington) and having a good night at Kelsey's and Mirage, we decided to brave the bus (though this was short lived when we saw the bus pulling away and therefore had to get a taxi) and go onto campus for the Halloween Ball. I think everyone had a good night, and there are a few, pretty boring, photos on here.
After just answering the door to a 'trick-or-treater' aged about six, you have to question how one day makes it 'O.K' to knock on strangers doors (interupting the dinner you've just spent hours cooking) to ask for money/sweets/suchlike… – Tradition? Phff…
For moral fortitude .. was quite irrelevant in the conducts of one's life, it was better, or in any event easier, to be engaging and attractive.
But Time (which Nature doth despise,
And rudely gives her love the lie,
Makes Hope a fool, and Sorrow wise)
