The Devil House!

Nine Spooks

As you may or may not know, I have moved since the beginning of the year and have been gradually making modifications on The House as time permits. The Noctuary Chambre has been painted dark burgundy blood-red and black, and I will be embarking upon the pleasurous task of painting the trim on the outside of The House black. The best time for this I have found is either in the early morning or the early evening just before dusk, as it would be the most comfortable weather-wise while still providing light. Bit by bit, this residence is resembling "The Black House" of this area - for this is certainly "The Devil House", "Haunted House" etc. - every town has one, and this is it. This has been the case in every Lair I have possessed, and this shall be the most comfortable {for Me} yet. I will supply photos within the next couple of weeks, I think.

I found this tank-top message amusing and true - and thought so much of it that I posted it here. It derives from a long well-enjoyed site: Engrish.com, a play on the word "English" from a Japanese accent. From everything I have surveyed on this site, I Am convinced that American executives are purposefully entertaining these various messages on all of these items on purpose, or Japanese executives are allowing these to go through to the printers, all as an inside joke. And I appreciate the sentiment! The third possibility could be that they just have inferior spell-checkers, plain and simple; or it could be a combination of all of these. Whatever the case, Engrish makes for an entertaining perusal overall.
