This has been a great couple of days!
It all started Sunday, when Rich
and I went to the RenFaire in CT. I told them to be at my house a little before nine thirty AM. My dad went to leave for work at nine, and discovered them playing with swords in the driveway. It turns out that M!ke had been there since eight AM, but hadn't bothered to knock or anything.
So we finally got on our way, and we managed to not get hopelessly lost on our way there. We finally arrived, and it was great! Saw a few old friends and made lots of new ones. I have now joined the Ship of Wyrd, as Summer "Bubbles" Rose the Bard. Yayness! I'm willing to bet that by the time NYRF starts, a certain Wyrd Cousin
will have everyone calling me Bubbles full time.
Because of my joining the ship, I now have two little sisters, both of whom are physically larger than me, of course. Wynter
and Autumn. Yay!
I bought a dagger, who I have dubbed Moon Chaser. I'm hoping to have the sheath engraved at some point.
The faire was a blast, but the trip to Friendly's afterwards was just as good. There's no way to explain any of this, but I'll give you some quotes:
"I'm pregnant!"-M!ke, after drinking out of the magical straw.
"The cherries are tingly!" Rich (don't ask.)
"You look like the back wall of a carnival stand!" Rich
"You my baby momma!" M!ke, after establishing that it was me, not Snowball.
"We don't run around waving dildos yelling "Toga! Toga!" Autumn, in reference to stupid people not knowing anything about Faire.
"It's hard to pee in chainmail." M!ke
"Can we have crayons?" Us
"How does it feel to find out you have a uterus?" Autumn, in reference to the first quote.
"You can't get pregnant from tampons!" Me, but I don't remember why.
There was some mention of eating either babies or virgins, and pork flavored ice cream, but that's inappropriate.
After that, M!ke, Rich and I all went back to my house. I packed, M!ke left,and Rich and I were off to New Paltz for the night!
Monday was fun. We went to get yummy coffe, and we went shopping. I got tattoo markers at the art store. Rich bought me a couple of helpful little sparkly rocks at the Awareness shop. (I successfully resisited the prosperity stone of DOOM! Yay me!) We got some lunch, then went back to the house to play with swords. I got to meet the puppy! We watched TV. Then, the storm started.
I haven't danced in a good thunderstorm in a loooooong while. This one. Was. Amazing. I felt soooooo good afterwards. I was slightly disappointed that the electricity didn't go out, though.
After Mother Nature got finished venting, we drove me home. I collapsed, and then Tuesday happened...
Had an interview at the New School Tuesday. It went really well, except for the minor interruption of a FIRE DRILL! That was amusing. :) I should know if I got in in about two weeks. As we left the building, the deluge started again.
Getting home took forever because of the giant accident on the West Side Highway. But I'm patient, so it's ok.
Rich hung around for a while, then I went to sleep, which leads us to...
Wednesday gaming! Woot! Great game, except for the turncoats. I bite you all! M!ke was there, and it was nice, and the world did not end. Went to Friday's afterwards, then drove the Evil Twins home. Went back to Mer's to fetch VW
, who stayed at my house last night.
And now we have today. Snowball didn't realize VW was here until he got up this morning, which was pretty funny. But the best part about today happened slightly before that.
I got up. I checked my e-mail, and discovered....
MY SWORD HAS FINALLY SHIPPED! WAHOO! AND A BARREL FULL OF MONKEYS! ::Happy Leslie Dance:: It'll be here in less than a week, barring any disasters. I'm so excited I could burst!
Well, that's about it for the most amazing four days I've had in a long time. Now I must shower and go to work and such.
(PS-Rich, I'm being good. I swear. ::Evil grin::)
Have a lovely day!
