Accept Unexpected/St. Michael
Mike Harris and I were just talking about the history of this celebration the other day, and weird modern gnostic/neopagan appropriations of it. Two more applications go in the mail today, though not the one to Saint Michael's College yet (though maybe I should hurry up and finish that one today, just for the symmetry of it). I don't know how I'll squeeze in any feasting today because I'm still dizzy from the very, very best steak I ever have had – the Truffle Seared Tenderloin with chevre whipped potatoes and madeira~black truffle mushrooms over at Roots with Diane on Friday night – and trying to do anything more seems like overkill.

MICHAELMAS!

According to Wikipedia, you should eat a stubble-goose!

Looked all over the block and had to settle for a tuna-salad sandwich as the closest thing. I thought the celery was stubbly.

AND ALSO, don't forget to pay your local oppressive lord his quarterly dues today! I hope you didn't, but otherwise you are probably beheaded right now and don't really care.

Yes, a goose and have some Michaelmas daisies on hand. If not, New England Asters will do quite good. Anyway, nice seeing your Michaelmas entry. I was in DC over the holiday but still managed to find some elements of the day. Well, a Happy October to you.
