Today is Christehimmelfährt, or something similar – Ascension Day to us ordinary, tea-drinking folk. In this god-fearing land of ubiquitous bisexuality, such a great day is naturally a public holiday.

i tried to wish the MILF receptionist a happy Ascension Day yesterday, she had no idea what i was talking about so – clad in my black Dracula coat – i imitated dying on the Cross, being anointed by various Marys, spending three days in the underworld with Woden, Ishtar, Thoth, and then ascending to Heaven. The MILF observed this performance with some consternation, then ventured: “Dracula?”

So. A good Dracula Day video:
