Flinging Oneself & Caledon Silliness

The Caledon SLRFL Fair opened in Carntaigh today and I thought I'd try out the trebuchet catapult with Miss Paris and Miss Gustafson.Soon we were flinging ourselves on horses, on large balls, and with our pets attached. Sometimes we were successful. Others? Kersplat.
Later there was a flash rave in Carntaigh. All sorts of silliness. Lots of particle lights, a flaming pitchfork, whirling lightsticks, green fairy staggerings, Tartan sightings, and silly hats such as my rabbity hat (which I got at my first Caledon party ever)--and especially a checked jester hat from Miss Paris that everyone had on at one point.
One of the things I love about Caledon is that despite our general politeness and smart dressing, we know how to have lots of fun. Often very silly fun. Some might find it annoying, but I love the Caledon "Hoooo!" I was so tickled when Mr. Margulis gave it to me that I didn't know what to do as I've wanted to be able to do the "Hoooo!" for quite a while. To me, it's an expression of general delight or exclamation over something and is applicable to many things. It's something that I regard as uniquely Caledonian...

I was dancing so close to you, I was afraid the "hooo"ing you were doing was going to blow out my speakers!
