Confessions of a Fauf

Magical Mischievousness

I've been reading the Spiderwick Chronicles this week. It's a children's series about kids who discover a fantastic world of fairies, goblins, and elves in their own backyard. It's been quite fun, but has also gotten me thinking. There have been some strange happenings at the Shaw Manor, which leads me to believe that the Faerie world (as it's called) exists in my own backyard too. Here's the data I've collected so far....

1. Our lawn is multi-shades of green, some shades unnaturally green (emerald almost)
2. New sprouts of grass started growing after we'd shut the sprinklers off for a whole week--makes no sense
3. Our vegetable garden is flourishing, despite Fauf's history of killing plants--makes me think those gnomes in the garden are really doing their jobs
4. Our food seems to disappear quickly from our cupboards--we can't be eating that much so fast
5. I stumbled upon this little house, but no one was home (see picture below). I plan to return and hopefully get some answers from the tenant.

Your little house looks good enough to eat. Do Hansel and Gretel frequent your neighborhood?

I'm not sure why but this website is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new
comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment
is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.
Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
Appreciate it!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's
both educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I
stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

I do not drop a lot of responses, however after reading a great deal of responses on this page "Magical Mischievousness".
I actually do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or does it look like some of the remarks look as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
