    Default The Goblin Calendar 2011-2012: Dec 25

    For some reason, it seems like the goblins has left the underwold to play tricks on me even before Christmas. Dec 22, I bought some books and a couple of CDs at a local mall. When I got back at the car, I was distracted by an amazing rainbow. The sun was low and its rays gliding over the rooftops. All the colors were present in the rainbow, and it was a complete and crisp half circle hovering above my home town.

    Then I went back home, carried up some bags (I had been out for a long time already) and went out again to get the last presents. Some hours later after getting back home, relaxing a bit and then getting ready for wrapping them up, it seemed like the bag with the books and CDs had disappeared. I searched high and low, even in the car, but the bag seemed to be nowhere.
    I even continued to search the next day. Luckily I found it on time, but I was --> <-- this close to search for replacements if I hadn't..


    Anyway.. here is my contribution (please excuse mistakes in grammar and composition):

    Probably the same place I had let them (on the floor in front of the cupboard in my hobby room), despite me looking several times in there..

    Default Daimona, is this poem yours?

    It is very nice! and... very into the bellydance mentality!

    Because, demon means just God and Goddess... never mess with the powerful!

    As for the trick the goblins played to you, well... this is really funny!
    And remember, Goblins are not allowed to steal anything from our world apart from food (usually sweets)!

    Merry Dodecameron!

    Default 2nd Day of Dodecameron, December 26th!

    My treat is a musical goblin tale about the Goblins and the Nolaugh City.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7OE_o0hypg

    It is a long fairy tale, modern, but based on traditional stuff, which i love very much and the story summary is the followig:

    The Goblins got bored going every year to the Nolaugh City to play tricks without people laughing at all and then go back to the underworld and find the Tree of Life recovered. So, some year they decided to make the habitants of the Nolaugh City do the tricks and the Goblins to be able to laugh with them. So, they flied to the City on a pack of geese and they distributed a magical potion so that the people of th Nolaugh City became very laughing, smiling and friendly, hugging and kissing each other, filling with sweets the streets and having the children enjoying the fair! spring came in the middle of winter and everything came upside down and everybody was having fun, singing and dancing and the nonlaughing people became very laughing people! and there came the official guests of the Goblins: Snowhite, the Happy Prince, the Lead Soldier and his Ballet Dancer lady, Tom Sawyer and Karagyoz, even Jimmy Hendrix!

    Then, after the Goblins flied away on their geese and the Nolauch City woke up the next day, its habitants could not remember what had really happened or they really wanted to forget about that. So, they never again talked about that night and when the visitors of the City that night mentioned that the Nolaugh City was happy and laughing for just the last night of Dodecameron, they hated the foreigners and they tried to made stop telling those "lies". Nolaugh city became just like it has always been and children only kept remembering the songs they learned that night and they sang them, although their parents and teachers tried to persuade them that all those stories about Goblins and geese are silly tales. Of course, every time the children sang and danced a pack of white geese appeared in the sky...

    PS/I do not know whether it is the story tellers' invention or traditional stuff, but they say in the song that the magic potion took 18 days to be prepared, so it seems that the Goblins might visit our world a bit earlier than Christmas!

    This is a few hours early for US locations, but it is the 27th of December somewhere and I may not get a chance to do this later.

    Default This is great! I love this poem!

    I think it is fairly political, i mean oriented to talk about the economy... or am i too affected by all this continuous discussion about economics? [ok, i admit that i also study economics, i am a real Goblin]

    Moreover: any other Goblin that wants to join the Calendar, as there are some more days left for tricks? (Dec 28th, 29th and 31st and January 4th). In case a Goblin does not appear till tomorrow, i will make the trick of December 28th!!!

    Default 4th Day of Dodecameron, December 28th

    Breaking news!

    New Year's presents might not be delivered in time as Santa Claus is under arrest for sexual harassment against a lady in front of her children. Santa is already brought to justice and is under trial because the judge denied to dismiss him on bail, given that the police and Interpol have serious evidence on his preparing to escape to his villa, which lies in no man's land of the North Pole.

    Given that the trial might be traumatic for non-adults, cameras are not allowed in the courtroom so, we only could have an exclusive sketch about a very thrilling moment of the trial where the defendant had to answer the District Attorney's questions...
