Utterly no point to this, other than sheer joy that it is indeed the shovel- face-with-pie time of year.

I require at least half a pumpkin pie in order to write a lecture and workshop session. It's nearly biscuit bat time too. Hurrah for small treasures in a cold, long and paperwork swamped month.

I love food......

I hate pumpkin pie. I need to find the bat-cutter, though.

I nearly saw some really rare real bats recently. Only we got escorted off the premises by a security guard with a big dog before we got the chance. Which was a shame. It'll make do with bat biscuits.

I thought everyone like pumpkin pie.

I loathe it. And pumpkin soup. I have no idea why, but it's one of those 'could not even eat if dining with the queen' things for me.

Was he a friendly security guard?

Absolutely not. We were clearly trespassing and may have climbed a small fence to be there knowing we may be turfed out. SO worth it for the pictures though. I only have one friend who'll volunteer to do this with me.

Pumpkin pie is vile. Other forms of pumpkin are fine. But pie, no.

Well I'll eat enough pumpkin pie to make up for both of you. I may adopt a diet of pumpkin pie, tea and gingered pimms, for the winter.

I don't want to eat my pie if it's been walking first. See I'd happily leave treacle tart, does nothing for me.

I will agree that pumpkin soup is perfectly revolting. A waste of pumpkin diverting it from pie.

Is that a fast boat crewed exclusively by bats, that would be fun to watch.

Can't say I've ever had pumpkin pie but I have nipped over a fence or two before.

I've never made a satisfactory one. It's a bit of an American thing to my mind.
