    It's definitely got to be GrumbleDook. Just think about it folks - have any of you seen GD and RoF in the same room together at the same time? I thought not!

    And another one said it because I told them I do not believe in halloween as it is essentially children begging for food and money (in the space between 4:30 - 7:00 we have had over 30 people knocking)...and each time I either do a trick or say I do not do halloween (depending on the age of the children)

    Am I horrible for this?
    One year when i had some kids come to the door, i asked them three questions:
    1) When is Anzac day, and what does the day acknowledge?
    2) When is Remembrance day, and what does it acknowledge?
    3) When is Australia day, and what does it acknowledge?

    If they fail any of the three questions, they get reminded that (in my case) we live in Australia, not America and to bugger off

    OOh I know these now!

    1) Thats the day you remember the bakers who make really nice biscuits.
    2) Thats the day you remember all the Afgahn Poppy Growers
    3) Thats the day they give us a Holiday so we can all go to Big Day Out!

    Can I get some candy?? :P

    You've obviously not been in to our office! & that comment would be more likely to come from the ladies!

    I know all of these (well what they acknowledge)...not sure on the dates but I am certain I know the months

    Anzac day is in both australia and NZ (I think) and it comemorates soldiers who have died for their nation, started mainly because of the fighting in gallipoli in turkey during WW1...this is in april, not sure of the day
    Rememberance day - end of WW1 and signifies the peace after the war as well as remembering the soldiers who died, november 11th
    Australia day - celebrates the first ships coming to australia - this is january, not sure of the day

    Sorry for the late reply, in answer to your question; Yes, you are a horrible person.
    I don't care to read the whole thread, I just wanted to clear that up for you

    This will hopefully end the split thread and allow everybody else to carry on with the Halloween theme

    Is it too late for me to say, 'No, I'm Spartacus'........or should I be in a different movie?

    What's wrong with wanting to be you?

    You get lots of attention don't you?

    This is what you require to get you through your inane life is it not?

    Why can't we all be like you?

    You aren't the real you are you?

    Your someone else?

    Your.............................................. ......................Bossman hehe!

    I knew it, I just knew it!!!

    Must have been that deep accusing voice of yours
