Diary Day Three

Today is the last entry into my diary from The Castle on the Hill  as tomorrow I will be going  home zooming along route 666 on the high way too! ……….

Well! you know where.

Home ward bound I will be.

I have mixed emotions actually you see there was an anticlimax here in the wee hours of this morn.

Attending the Gala Ball and Dinner being held in the austere yet beautifully presented Ballroom. Oh what a Grand room it is too. There might be bats in the bell tower here but the Ballroom is a remarkable and grand place to behold. Very rarely in these damp and decayed castles do you find true beauty such as this. .


I was mixing with all the hasbeens from the past and some of the used to be’s of the present. The grand presenter for the night was the very popular Vincent Price and his voice has not changed at all. It still sends goose bumps and tingles along my fully boned bodice. Or maybe on second thought, that was actually the tightness of the darn thing itself..

I had Hand help me into my beautiful Ball gown for the evening and what a useful hand he is too. My hair was perfectly groomed into a very high beehive. High and bouffant styled with room for my new tiara to sit on top of it perfectly. I don’t like to brag but I think that I gave Morticia Adams a run, for the money in the best looking stakes.

See photo below.




I was most impressed with Hand and his creating abilities.  Of course there is not much that Hand cannot do as he really is good at anything and everything he puts his fingers too.. The way he runs his little fingers through my hair. I am beginning to think he has a grip on me.


It's Hand and Me


I just love it when he teases me. There are No ends to his versatility.  I like that he can wander anywhere you need him to and hardly even notice that he has even been there until you see the changes he has made to your physical appearance. He knows how to pull that bodice tight too! Wow! does he ever. I looked like an egg timer in my dress by the time he was finished.

Of sorry, I digressed for a moment. I was just recalling Hand’s moment of madness when he slipped of my shoulder and I had to catch him in my Hand.. hehehe…To have and to hold from this day forth LOL Day dreaming I am.




Ah now let me get back to the anticlimax.

The night was waltzing along as the music was playing in the background. I believe it was the Viennese waltz at the time. When suddenly there was a huge flash.

The ballroom floor shook and the walls went white and we all froze for a moment.


It was Himmmmm the Big Guy himself.




The hush was eerie and the ghoul's and ghosts even went a whiter shade of pale.

Now this is where this story gets real creepy. I will have a drink of red wine and continue…

The music stopped as the musicians fled the stage.

Then it happened out from the shadows he came and as the Devil’s own began to play their music it was HIMM who sang these words to this song~~~



No Not Him!!!!!








Viva La Vida


I used to rule the world

I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
Once you know there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries Wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

  1. Excellent! I will have to go check out the others now as well... thanks Milli! :o)

  2. Well done Milli - stumblin' to Calvary..


  3. Thank you for entertaining us with your imagination, Milli. 'Tis a shame it has to end, though. Now, as to Hand's whereabouts. (giggles)

  4. Milli - just to let you know that I was here and read it. Its a late night and as you know (or probably not) that I had Yahell madness of my own with losing most of my blog content.

    I'm so pleased you hung on in there and that your 3 part diaries are a wonderful read and a treasured add to my collection.

    I so love the Michael Jackson ava - I think it rocked! And to use him the way you did here too - love that sense of humour. And Oh, now I've read about Hand I'm going to sneak him away into my dreams :D (if I may)

    I am sorry about your 360 woes and I hope that you will be able to access your page. I can't imagine what it must feel like for that to happen and dread what else is in store for us. The walls our crumbling down and it is a nightmare.

    Thank you for support and active participation in this.


  5. thanks to everyone who has supported my little efforts here and I am not too sure if the little video or the pictures that i posted in the blog are showing through to everyone but I thank Pla for placing the song by Coldplay into the comments section for those who can not see it in the main post. This was such a fun three days of creative posting and I want to thank all the stars in this creative show and especially Hand and Franz!!!!
    Haunting hugs to ALL.

  6. Ha ha, so much fun my witchy friend! I really enjoyed following what you were up to the last few days, a bit worried about your carrie ons with Mr Hand though hmm ROFL...
    Would there be a linky somewhere to the others who are in this or is it maybe a private thing?

  7. thank so much Mia and the other bloggers are on 360 and truly it is a nightmare there for Reading and commenting. I Will try to get links though.

  8. Could I borrow Hand? ;) He seems oh so.... oh nm! I loved this series.. you have a wonderful imagination. I had so much fun reading this... Have a happy Happy Witchy Halloween :)(hugs from up above)

  9. We want to thank you for letting us tag along. Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't introduce the one who came along with me. I was shocked and amazed that no one noticed that this witch didn't bring the standard cat, I brought my dog. I will admit he had one heck of a time getting used to my cranky broom, but once up in the air there was no stopping him from keeping his head out there in the wind - I'll never understand why dog like to do that. I know, I know, what kind of witch am I that I don't have a cat. Well, after my little terror died last year, I just moped around and this giant black dog took me in. What can I say. I had to reward such canine kindness. But I digress... We both had a wonderful time and are so looking forward to seeing you at all the other witches events in the coming year. Ciao!

  10. Dogs are fine they are wonderful actually ..kind a 'hounds of the Baskervilles' delightful for witches..LOL... your comments have had me in stitches Marcia and so too have the other Guys and Ghouls following along in this little get together. All of you have been such good friends along with me on this trip. So looking forward to more fun in the future....

  11. More than welcome Chezzz I loved having you here with me.

  12. LOL borrow a Hand LOL well of course Rashmi I can give you a Hand anytime.
    You have a good tricka-treata too..that's a bit like a jello skull covered in chocolate LOL sweet eh?
