Today is November 5th.. And here in Britain, that means one thing. Bonfire Night :) this is a traditional celebration dating back to 1605 when a group of um... Political Activists.. tried to assassinate the King of England in the Gunpowder Plot.. They failed and many were caught and executed.. depending on which way you want to look at it, we either celebrate their failure, or their desire for change.. Mostly we use the date as an excuse to combine Man's 2 greatest loves.. Setting things on fire and blowing stuff up :)

All we really have left are the words.. "Remember remember, the 5th of November. Gunpowder, Treason and Plot. I can think of no reason, why the Gunpowder Treason, should ever be forgot.."

VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

"Remember remember the 5th of November/ Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
I see no reason/ Why gunpowder treason/Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent/ To blow up the King and the parliament.
Threescore barrels of powder below/ Poor old England to o'erthrow".

That's about all I can remember, although how refreshing it is to see someone celebrating.
