No, I did not forget it was Martian Cricket Day


I'm just a bit late getting to it.

Nor did I forget it was Monday. For Monday Morons, scroll down a bit.

Did you know that Martian Cricket Day came with presents? At least, it did for me. My friend from the great white north spent a lot of time looking under rocks and such until he found the 1958 version of Quatermass and the Pit. He sent me a copy, and it just arrived in the mail. Haven't had time to look at it yet. Thank you friend from the great white north.
And, there is food to go with this holiday. You didn't know that either, did you? Well, there is a picture to prove it, but as you can see I'm still having difficulty posting pictures. Well, maybe you can see it if you click on the little red X mark at the top of the page.
Have to go now. I should try to do something useful before I watch this. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

I have seen this food before....like something from the dmarks neck of the universe....

I now remember the martian cricket...in the Hammer flick. When I wrote my post last night I decided to go off on one of my tangents and forgot entirely what the cricket thing meant. Thanks for the 411.

So appetizing. I can just see a version of the Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving panting, except instead of a turkey, a Martian cricket is being served.

I thought the day was coming up, so I googled it just now. This is the first thing that came up... and it seems I missed it.
