If the law is a bad law, there is always the contingent right to take action that you would not otherwise take.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! St Johns Park, December 2010.

Quite why this aged care institution (I think) locks its guests in a tower, I am unsure. One assumes that they must get rowdy as the X-Mas season creeps up upon us.

Henry and I have been working on a draft letter the Satan Claws Father Christmas over the weekend, but we cannot quite get the tone right. We are finding it difficult to strike the precise balance between worthy, pious, and grateful; and the extremely long list of expensive and ostentatious that we want this year.

Maybe we should try the Great Pumpkin instead? If there is one thing that you can say about our desires, they're "sincere".

Perchance to curb their overzealousness. Me thinks!
