Someone at Scarborough told me that TRF was 10X as much fun PLUS they had this thing called the chainmail fashion show....my counter started right then.  ;D

ya know, I have never seen the chainmail fashion show for personal reasons, but if you need to set your countdown timer precisely, I believe it starts right around noon  ;D

10x?  That's all?  Hercules, you'll bear tales of TRF for the rest of your life.  I'm not kidding... You're coming down for a weekend, correct?

lessee... have to get out to the shop on my one day off that I can make it and knock out stock for this year, have to get all of my garb in order, have to finish insulating the living quarters since this winter is going to be brutally punishing, have to get the forge prepped and ready to roll (usually do that in Sept.), and at some point in all of this I have to get surgery... gah! *tWiTcH!*

I can't really work on to much more grab just yet I need to pop out the little one first so I can see what size I get down to. I also have to wait for him to get the rest of his stuff together I have to see how big or small he is first. I will have to rush it in August when he is born but I will get it done. I just got his little black kitty ears in the mail I am so happy I can't wait to get is little tail done he will be my little tom cat/kitty.

Queen Bonnie would you also work on spells to ensure we have oh... I don't know.... average temps in the mid 70's, light, gentle breezes and sunshine for the entire TRF season?!  :P That would be awesome! Many thanks in advance, lol!

Realistically, barring hurricanes (because holy mother of Mike is the Gulf a cat-5 factory right now if any roll into it), if the projected 30 year weather patterns that started ten years ago hold true, then very hot summers presage very cold winters. This means we all need to start working on fur-lined cloaks for the last few weekends, just in case. That being said, I can say only one thing: 2,500 degree coal... it's warm (http://fc00.deviantart.com/fs33/f/2008/309/3/b/Process__forging_the_tines_by_Breandan_OCiarrai.jpg)  ;D

If it does freeze, we will be selling heat by the BTU...  ;)

Thankfully with my boys I have been able to pass down over the years.  And my daughters havent grown too much that they were able to wear their garb for 2-3 yrs.  *I always made for a lil room to grow*

It was made by the guy who made the actual station (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202668.msg2158872;topicseen), and I couldn't find any place that sold it. So I printed mine off on card stock and laminated it  ;)
Catch me at the blacksmith's shop (over next to the glassblower's), and I'll get you one  ;D


As for preps... well, my wife is thinking she might be (or soon will be at the rate we're going) pregnant again, and will want better accommodations than the loft. So, we spent an hour in the Woodlands looking at a new Catalina travel trailer (http://coachmenrv.com/products/model/?ProductID=2&SeriesID=54&Product=Travel%20Trailers&Series=Catalina) for this year.

oh no! seriously, dont worry- I started with home made and have started buying more and more- and some people do the exact opposite! As long as your garb is stuff you like, and feel comfortable in, the rest will come later... You'll probably end up adding your own personal touches- the creativity is contagious!

I've taken stuff and modified them myself.  I just bought a really nice kilt belt from Ravenswood Leather.  My wife walks out on the back porch and finds me punching holes in a $80 belt... had to mount a Neveren celtic cross on the back of it.  I've mixed and matched stuff... the overall effect is what you are after.  What ever makes you happy.  If you look in the mirror and smile, then you got it right.  ;D

Maker of quite fine, steel boned corsets of the more Victorian persuasion... most Victorian corsets you find at faires are maybe only steel boned at the laces, this has i think 8 or 10 bones throughout... and they come in a wide range of sizes! I have one, I want more!

I just found an Ebay store a few days ago (that has a 99.9% positive rating) that has all leather corsets, and many of their "Buy it Now" auctions are for custom pieces.  I'm just about to buy two different corsets, and I'll be spending less than $300... total.  In fact, I think I'll go do that now!!!   ;D

Not sure if I should post a link here, but I'd be happy to renmail it to anyone who wants it!  Oh!!!  I'm not affiliated with the site in anyway, either!

Bellevivre, I'll do that, although they will both be made to my specific measurements, so I'm not too worried about it... and with such a high positive rating out of over 1700 sales in just the last 12 months, well, I'm willing to take a chance to get over $900 worth of corsets for under $300.  I'm sure they're just using up the last of their leather stock before the next seasons styles and colors come out, but the two I found are incredible looking, and I could never afford them at Faire...

I just found an Ebay store a few days ago (that has a 99.9% positive rating) that has all leather corsets, and many of their "Buy it Now" auctions are for custom pieces.  I'm just about to buy two different corsets, and I'll be spending less than $300... total.  In fact, I think I'll go do that now!!!   ;D

Not sure if I should post a link here, but I'd be happy to renmail it to anyone who wants it!  Oh!!!  I'm not affiliated with the site in anyway, either!

hiya rani!

will you send me the link to the ebay site you are talking about?

you will be here on hallow's eve weekend, jes?  can't wait to see ya again!

If it's corsets or bodices you want you should look at "Damseldress.com". Her prices are very reasonable, she is a rennie and the product line looks great.

I have a Damsel pirate bodice.  ;D  ;D  Her work is wonderful! I get tons of questions and compliments about that bodice.  :)

Crimson Gyspy is a good source for bodices too.

Oops... sorry Bonnie, I sent it this morning and forgot to answer your question!  Yes, I will indeed be down there for All Hallows!!!  I'll be camping with the Bayou Scoundrels, so we might actually get to spend more than 5 minutes together this time!  Can't wait to see you again, either, and everyone else I finally got to meet while I was having such a wonderful time at Scarby!!!  Won't it be fun to just walk into the campground this time, though, instead of having to drive somewhere, then meet and eat?  :D  LOLOL

Post by: Breandan on July 10, 2009, 12:33:38 PM
Since I wasn't working at Scarby for the one day I made it out, I was attacked by my wife and her friends and dressed "appropriately" (i.e., in non-blacksmithing roughout)- a hunter green Dra shirt, a slashed black leather doublet, black pants, and knee-boots, with a German cut-n-thrust sword on my hip as opposed to my usual 14th century infantry sword. Apparently, I looked nice (have to ask Element of Aire, since I ran into her and her fuzzy lad at a fur shop), so I am now under orders to wear said outfit any chance I get at TRF this year. So, since it appeared to be a hit, I am now trying to find similar clothing to expand out the new repertoire of garb and have an alternate to bare-chested or sleeveless tunics and a leather apron  ;D

We live in Charlotte, NC, but are thinking seriously about attending the TRF for the first time this year. We heard it is the 'biggest, baddest Faire in the land.' Is this true? Also, any tips for the totally-never-been-to TRF before?

Also, as we will be flying out there for a weekend, we will have to cut back on the weaponry we usually carry. I don't even want to have to think about explaining why we have 'Excalibur' on the bottom of a suitcase. (But Officer, it's peace-tied!)

Hey Lady Goodhaven! Looks like you and I are TRF virgins. But I'll tell you that I was told the same thing. That if you enjoy a faire then you'll love TRF as it is the biggest in the land.

Only one way to find out though. Hitch a wagon to my old mule and go find out for maself.  ;D

Hard shell rifle cases make good sword holders for travel. Check with your airline for any restrictions.

Post by: Breandan on July 10, 2009, 01:56:44 PM
I second Ravic's recommendation. If they ask any questions, just tell them that you are taking a replica weapon to a renaissance festival, usually settles it. One other thing you might want to do is padlock the rifle case to keep any sticky-fingered ground crew from running off with it.

Don't they need a TSA approved lock? Been a while since I flew and I knew I had to get one so inspectors could open cases if they had too.

if they need in a case, the TSA has absolutely no compunctions about taking bolt cutters to it. I shall refrain from saying more about them  :-X

Locks have gotten a little better since I had to use them. But most airlines suggest them anyway.

Lady Goodhaven,

If you are able to make it to our lovely faire; please pencil us in for the 'meet-n-greet' at the Prince of Wales Pub!  We all gather there right before, during and after the festival parade.  Lots of mischief, merry making and photos!

Hope you all can make it!  :)

Birgette Von Cleave sister of Anne and Amelia and Klaus

Other than that I just got to see how talented the cast is and meet a few new people! I have a feeling this season will be a great one and even MORE so because it is the faires 35TH ANNIVERSARY! HUZZAH!

Another question. What do ya'll do with all your faire-fair during the year? Clearing  my “list”. And I got most all I can get ahead of time and it's just a pile in the closet now. Doublet, britches and Dra shirt are in a vacuum garment bag and that’s as organized as the pile is. :-\

Both of me kilts are wool. The Fraser of Lovat tartan is my formal one and "special occasions" only (like putting me in the ground).  The one i wear to faire is Black Watch Modern, as is my fly plaid.  Black & green being me personal colors, Black Watch suits me fine.  My bracers are black & green leather, also.  Stunning in a dark twisted kind of way...  like me!

Since I don't drink, that's more fridge space for munchies for me  ;D (yes, we have a fridge)

Well, I was pondering many things today, and it occurred to me that many folks who go to faire save up all year and blow a huge wad of money on the whole thing. This makes me feel both a tad guilty since I get in for free and get to practice my hobby (smithing), and simultaneously feel a sense of pride in the whole thing that people love the experience so much that they put so much time, effort, and money into it. It's like Woodstock with chainmail  :D

My question to myself is...is this the year to try again (and to make sure to call them prior to said weekend so I'm not in the same conundrum)?

I reaaaaally reaaaaaaaaally want a Saberist bodice. >.<

Ahhh I gotcha! More moolah is always good!

I still wrestle back and forth as to whether it's better to be hourly or salaried. I don't do as many weekends as I did when I was hourly. But when I do I can help but think..."I'm doin' this crap for free!"  :D

could be worse. I remember the first contract DynCorp ever offered me- I looked at the money and practically jumped, since it was the most I had ever made in a year... then I looked at the work schedule- 6 days a week, 12 hours a day- and realized that I was going to earn that extra digit before the comma. No overtime, only two weeks vacation AFTER the first 330 days of the contract, yada yada. (http://ciarraide.org/images/smilies/blargh.gif)
But, at least the first $80k was untaxed  ;D

Still headed out to faire tomorrow, mostly to work on the forge, but we'll toot around the site and get some pics to post here as well. Anyone have any requests?

69 Firebird - 400 w/tach on the hood

71' Formula w/scopes

My Dad had a '68 bird with a 400! Me Mudder made him give it up.

I had the 1980 Indy Pace Car Turbo T/A. Car was a dog unless you had it on the highway with the turbine spooled up. First day I bought it I thought I was so kewl...right up until I took it up against a '72 'Vette.  :D

Congrats! 

And since I've been pregnant at faire twice now, I'd reccoment that she skip the corsets.  Lost Island sells these cute flowy tops that are perfect.  (I know, I know.  No flowy clothing near the forge!).   I tried moresca's cropped corsets, but they have these 2 prongs that point down in the front and they poked me in the belly.

No worries, she has an outfit that she made when she was pregnant last time, and she will be about as far along by faire as she was before the miscarriage, so it should fit perfectly. I still want her to do the pregnant fairy thing you did, but she's not sure yet  ;D

Less than two months... ARGH! And now my wife can't do any heavy lifting...
*ponders bribing fellow rennies with scotch or rum to help with the drywall*

Hmmmm....

*remembers rennie ability to put down epic quantity of alcohol, looks at bank account, and rethinks it*

Buying 'em all cars would be cheaper methinks  ;D

Are you tearing out the plywood, or putting the drywall over it?
Do you have a good fan to clear the dust, or will you provide dust masks?
Are you working both Saturdays and Sundays?

I can help on the next couple of Saturdays.
I live about 75 miles from TRF, so I can be there by 0830-0900.
I only drink water, tea, or lemonade/Gatorade.

Take Care,
David Baldock

Have a wedding to do this weekend, so twill be a while afore we get out there again. So, if anyone else is going to be there the 29th and 30th, lemme know and I'll try to swing by and say allo :D

Whew!  I just avoided a scheduling dilemma!  I was under the misguided assumption that TRF always started the first weekend of October (my birfday weekend), so I scheduled my vacation accordingly a few weeks ago.

Just checked the website, and they don't open 'til the following weekend!  Luckily, I was able to change schedules at work so I can still get my Friday 'prep and drive' day!

Oh, and hello, by the way.  Good to be back on the boards!

Hi everyone!  How ya been?

Second, first weekend of rehearsals this past weekend was hot.  Not to mention the opening gate show before 9 of the clock is going to rock!!!  Poor poor poor Captain Fletcher, it's just a show to watch, I am not spoiling it.

This past Sunday was the first Dance call for those who will be doing the court dances along with all the kings and queens of Europe!  Sunday's till the start of faire will be our Performance Company dance rehearsals so we look great doing all the choreographed dances.  (luckily enough, both Saturday and Sunday we were allowed to wear tennis shoes and t shirts.  There were a couple already in full costume but again I will not divulge that information).

The path shows are being created and a lot of excitement is in the air for this season.  I can't wait to see everyone out there. 

Till then, Caio!  2009 TRF will be here before you know it!!!!

Yeah - authentically made kilts, and by authentically I mean NOT Commando kilts or any other such knock off (Not to include Utilikilts which I wear on a daily basis) are designed in such a way as to move with the wind.  That said, if you walk over a fan you will Merilyn (Another new term for Herc), a daily kilt wearer (and all women in skirts) also know that on hot breezy days, the underside of a vehicle can cause an updraft.  Obviously one needs to be prepared for such things.  Oh and don't forget the drunk chick that flat out grabs the hem and raises.  She doesn't get invited back to the party.  In general a kilt is not going raise high enough in a good breeze to show anyone anything but maybe a bit of thigh.  Last I checked, its not indecent exposure to show off some thigh.

I DID apologize. Geeeeeeeez.

Two years ago I did see a drunk gal at Scarborough doing just that. She'd wait for a kilt wearing gentlemen to come by. Then yell "Ish you a real Scotshmun" and yank up his kilt all the while giggling. One gal-pal of said kilt wearer was not amused.

Post by: KiltedPrivateer on August 20, 2009, 03:38:28 PM
I'd like to know what yer doin to allow sunlight up there.  I walk around with my feet on the ground personally.  So Mini Me gets no sunlight lest I'm whizzin out in the open somewheres. 

And chafing was only a problem on a particularly dry day.  In which case a very good friend of mine introduced me to body glide.  Comes in a stick like deodorant.  Rub a bit on the thighs - Walk all day without thigh friction.  Generally though, the sweat is enough lube to keep me from chaffing.  And opening weekend you can count on plenty of humidity.
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: KiltedPrivateer on August 20, 2009, 03:44:08 PM
As a daily kilt wearer I'm pretty good at picking out the deviant in the crowd.  Not that kilt checks are a daily occurrence - Thank God.  But you only need it to happen once to learn to keep an open eye.  And I'm quite certain the wife would be incredibly UN-amused at such a woman and would probably escort her to the nearest officer of the law.  Not unlike if a man were to do the same to a woman.

Now - I do not frown on a true kilt check.  And a professional kilt checker knows the difference and knows how to discreetly answer "The Question"

I refuse to wear kilts for three key reasons- 1) I'm Irish, and outside of the Ulster-Scots who wear variants of their kilts from Scotland, it's not an Irish thing; 2) I have thighs like tree-trunks, and have to wear boxer-briefs to keep them from grinding themselves into oblivion... chafing is not my friend; and 3) I am kinda the anti-trend sort, if everyone else is doing something, I avoid it or outright do the opposite out of instinctive defiance.

Around this group, it may not be safe to say "never".  So, you'd better make sure you don't ever get drunk enough for the wenches to put you in a kilt and take pictures for evidence.   :o  ;D

Hmmm... I was of the belief that wearing a kilt WAS bucking the norm.  In fact, at faire I'm a breeches wearin privateer, cavalier or swordsman.  I only wear my kilt to faire if we go highland fling weekend or if it is extremely hot opening weekend and I want a wee bit o' air to circulate around the ole boys.

Otherwise, I'm the only kilt wearin guy in my office.  Definitely anti-conformist.

I'm also not Scottish or Irish - Possibly Welsh though

The big trends at faire for guys- pirates, Scots, and the mommy-didn't-hug-me-enough gaudy spikey armour wearers (you know who you are!  :D ), so I avoid those trends out of nascent defiance. Around the "office", I'm pretty normal- 5.11s and Bates boots, so I guess I'm a weekend non-conformist  ;D

And seriously- Hubby always goes regimental (when it's not so cold that things go inside to stay warm!) and I have never seen a wind that would flash the purple ribbon stock of someone in a kilt- the wool is too heavy!

Amen, sister.

haggis with major grey chutney and a nice mug of earl grey is THE way to start the day!!!

Loved Scottish eggs until I got a bad one this past year. Now I kinda get nauseous with 'em.  :(

 Ms. Bellevivre. If you like Earl Grey try some Lady Grey. Twinnings makes a decent batch. Citrus twang to traditional Earl Grey.

Okay Kilted where did you get the body glide?  Been looking for it and when I ask I just get the "Weirdo"
look...hmm might not just be the question  ;D
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!

I've seen BodyGlide I THINK at Sports Authority or one of those sports stores.
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: KiltedPrivateer on August 21, 2009, 02:05:05 PM
bellevivre: We usually bring haggis with us to camp and mix it with scrambled eggs for a good quick camp breakfast.

Lairde Daniel:
I believe Hercules is correct.  You will have to go to a devoted to sports type of store.  Your typical mega mart is not going to carry it.  Neither is your neighborhood drug store.  Fortunately, my current stick was given to me and I haven't had to replace it yet.  But the stuff is magic.  Its used mainly by runners.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.  Google might a good place to start.  In fact I may just do that right now since I'll be needing to replace my stick pretty soon.

EDIT: Ok, the body glide site is really helpful (http://www.bodyglide.com/)  It has a great interactive map that knew exactly where I was - IP snooping - and told which stores near me carry it.  That would be Academy Sports and Finish Line Sports.

Where abouts in the German village will you be.  We actually frequent that side of the faire often.  I sure hope the little garden restaurant will have had their service stream lined this year.

I should be all over Germany...we have poland this year too. we border at the water wheel, the mudpit and some strange non marked borders that I cannot determine yet lol. We have a great Grimm brothers based fairytale show this year!

UGH WEIGHT LOSS! I am eating almonds as we speak. I really want to get rid of my fat face by opening weekend so that I look decent in photos. I have really let myself go in the past year. My friends posted some pictures of me and my jaw dropped I was like OMG I have to get rid of all that soon!

In better news! I am ready... my chemises just need to come in the mail and I need like one more pouch and a back up cup but I am ready other than that... might need a cloak... but I am just thinking of putting those hand warmers in my costume when it gets cold so i don't have to shell out over 100 dollars on a decent cloak!

Rehearsals are going great... we have a pretty fun gate show! I am ready for this to start!!!!

I put my name in back in June. So when October's schedule popped up on Sept 1st I got an earful since I usually only take 1/2 days off.

Ladies and gentlemen, an announcement:

that is all ;D

Seriously, though, it's frustrating having only a little over a month to get everything ready, and not having the time, energy, and money to do so (speaking of that last bit, if anyone has six sheets of cheap 4'x8' OSB or plywood they are willing to part with, lemme know). I have one more blade to work on, and am barely going to have enough time to finish it before season starts. That makes a grand total of... three items I have managed to make >.<

we bought our new tent this weekend- WAHOO!!! I cant wait to set it up so i can start figuring out how we can 'Potterize' the inside and make it look awesome and rennie at least on the inside. Hopefully I'll come up with something for the outside too- I'm sure I could manage at LEAST dagging for the rain fly!

Yeah, so Mon-Thursday, after I jobhunt for something that can pay me $3k a month to meet my current overhead, I will endeavor to get my lazy butt into the workshop and finish out the shortsword, warhammer, and knife I currently have laying around looking at me saying "But, why hast thou forsaken us, o half-arsed creator?

Gotta share:

cheap and easy faire breakfast: Trash Tacos!

VERY easy if you have a spring chopper like this: http://snipurl.com/rs9r3 (And yes, I like this one, because it butterflys open to clean as most now dont (my old Zyliss does))

anyway- chop fine:
1/4 onion
1/2 bulb garlic (5-6 cloves)
2 potatoes (red are best, good to have varied size pieces)

Chop your meat (we used spam, but you could use sausage, bacon, ham, fajita meat, whatever) 

Drizzle hot pan with olive oil, set onions and garlic to cooking down first- add potatoes, then meat. Let meat cook through and potatoes  soften, then add as many eggs as you like.

Can be served with cheese on breakfast tacos, or just in a bowl.

You can really add whatever you like, make it thanksgiving sweet with apples, sweet potatoes and cranberries. Or make it meatless with mushrooms and tomatoes.

The best thing is, you can pre-chop all your ingredients at home, put it all in freezer bags, and when you wake up, dump into a skillet and go! Plus, it's just greasy and carb-y enough to be a good hangover salve.

Anyway, going to repost in camp cooking, I just figured that some of you may be making lists at this point...

could be worse, I got kicked out of bed last night and exiled to the couch at 0330 because my beloved wife in her pregnancy-induced-insomniac state was hypersensitive to my light snoring. Usually you could fire off a Mk19 next to her head while sleeping, and not get more than a snort and an unconscious kick in the leg, but last night... wow. So, I'm right there with you on the lack of sleep thing.

Made up for it by doing something productive and creative :D

to be fair, if I am on my side, my snore could give a five-ton's engine a run for it's money, but face-down it's basically heavy breathing. Normally not a problem, but last night I think she could hear a bee's tummy gurgle at five hundred yards. She has no recollection of kicking me out of the bed, and was very apologetic, but I thought it was funny as hell- *kick* "MRAAARGHLE! SNORING!" *repeated kicking till I fall off the edge of the bed* "Hmmph"  :D

at least you have enough bed to begin with- Hubby sleeps diagonally and give a human sized portion of the bed to the cat who sleeps at his side (the other two are smarter than to sleep on my legs)

Ultimately, the only way i get sleep is if i go to bed early before he gets home!

NOW! Back to work (focusfocusfocus)

Post by: Mouse on September 16, 2009, 04:26:58 PM
My ex when she was pregnant not only slept in a diagonal position in bed, she also slept splayed out in the center. I had no more than a sliver of bed to myself, blanket included. The slightest movement, noise, light, even a thought sat upon to heavily would wake her up. On top of that, she wrestled in her sleep, way above her division class if you ask me. A knee to the ribs, elbow to the neck, quick turn and a arm across the nose or slap in the face. I'm just under the assumption she dealt with our issues unconsciously....or consciously, who knows. I snore as well. My new mistress, this time around a lover of faires (I learned from my mistakes..and they say men don't evolve), like my snoring. The ex one tried to silence it by placing mini marshmallows up my nose. Someone forgot to mention to her I have sleep apnea. So it was the love seat for me. We don't own a couch. I still don't. As for my kid and her take on my snoring...she hit me in the face with a wooden cutlass one morning, so that answers that. Women will be the death of me, I swear it. And not in that die with a smile on my face and a secret upon my heart kind of death of me. Just plain sleep deprived, where did all my beer money go cause you had to get a pedicure death of me. 24 more days!!!! and it can't be here soon enough.

How many of you have had the opportunity to go to the TRF grounds in the off-season?  Besides TRF Performance Company, maybe some of you have worked on your booths or shoppes.  Have any of you noticed a new structure back in the German section?  In a TRF promo a few months ago, I believe it was Jeff Baldwin who made reference that they were constructing a 65 foot tall "clockenspiel" tower in the German section.  Just wondering if it was completed and if anyone has seen it?

With many safest of travels and blessings to you all, I will see you all soon.

We have a power problem at the blacksmith shop, I haven't dusted off garb, we've still not finished renovations of our sleeping quarters, and my wife only has one pregnancy outfit, and it needs to be finished. That's not even taking into account that by opening day all I will have managed to manufacture is a shortsword, two knives, and a handaxe. I have some half-finished projects at the forge to do during the run of it, but not much to put on the table at first light

Hoping the Scotch gods smile on me. Just needing  the alchemy gods to smile also. What a horrible year it has been. Are the Nargles all gone yet? I will be there. With luck.

I officially love you.

And Mouse, I officially love you too.

HP Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. :3

Oh, and... FIFTEEN!!!!!

Poor Fraser... his countdown seems to have been usurped... repeatedly!  :o

My last name is James...it means "to supplant". Who am I to deny my nature? That would be cowardly! Am I a  Mouse or a Man?! Wait....what was the question? Of course, I also have Martin, Galloway, and McGowan in me, which means "son of the smith"....Breandan?

Friday @ 2am? ???...Mouse must be sleeping in.  ;D

No Hercules, not asleep....This Mouse went walkabout to enjoy the fair faire weather and stopped at a friend's house for festivities to enjoy some fair fare with fellow faire friends at a late night fete. Fin.

or out with the ladies
And Breandan, nay, I was not. I have a ball and chain....it's attached to the wooden handle that my girlfriend wields if I get out of hand. She is a rennie as well. She would argue to the judge she was simply reenacting."But your Honour..I didn't MEAN to brain him...*bats Elizabeth Taylor eyelashes*

In the great words of the MacManus Brothers, "You'd have better luck with a beer." Or a nice Guinness cheese.
And you give me far too much credit if you think I can pull a Yukon along behind me...but once again, give me that beer and I will see what I can do.

No, after the Portapotty of Doom incident, we went Alaskan and just started using trees. Though, I will say, be damned careful where you do that because some secluded areas are secluded for a reason... especially if train tracks run right by them.  :o

It is with a heavy heart and downcast eyes that I inform you all that I shall not be attending faire. I was to go Halloween and Thanksgiving weekend, but alas, it was not meant to be. Today, I had to pay a 250 dollar electric bill, coupled with rent, that leave me -20 and rising in the bank. I am a stay at home dad of sorts and well...income won't match the deficit I assure you in time for either weekend as I will have to go back to a McJob that are the antithesis of the term "weekend warrior". I will try to find other corridors to go down that lead to the great hall that is TRF, but it is looking very grim from this Mouse. To quote the alainn one, Bellevivre, "...I have fallen into the Mouse-trap." Fare the well at faire, but I promise you that I will still continue to pester you all in a textual way with full frontal crudity.

From what I hear, until the tipping point happens, Chemo is much akin to a living death. Yes, sleep is overrated...until it is no longer an option, then it compromises ALL our wants and needs. As of now...I need BACON!

What was it?!?  12, yes, I believe it was 12 days until some of you lucky stiffs get to stroll through those gates into the magical land of... steak-on-a-stick... cider... and more kilts and cleavage than you can shake a - well, a steak-on-a-stick at!!!

Oh yeah... sick renlet is staying home, so prolly no sleep for me again.  She has a fever... and a cough... and can't seem to get back to sleep.  (sigh)  Poor thing... wonder if she'd like some bacon?

Uhhhh... sounds like an out to me...  (unless, of course {taking into account the fact that you said "obstacle", instead of "hope"}, you've actually been secretly lobbying to get her to accompany you, and all that resistance is just that whole public front thing guys do when they don't want anyone to know they really would rather have the girl on their arm, after all...)  :P

The Lovely Lady Trinn is also extremely bugphobic as well. As in serious panic atacks when one comes to close to her. At faire, in the camps there isn't a bad problem. You can see the comic relief of those of us who know she is phobic standing near her and catching/killing things that fly nearby before she sees them. So far she hasn't had a total freak out over bugs at camp. At home... is another story. At camp... not a problem.

*Give her rum or loki... never notice the bugs that way*

That's how this gal is. I asked her if she wanted to go with me waaaay back in June/July and I got a profound "NO" 'cause I'd be camping and that meant bugs. I thought at the time; "Yay I can do ma own thing and go stag"

Then yesterday (with less then two weeks before opening!!) I get a message and now she'd would like to go!

Do'oh! So now I'm looking at my list and wondering which items need to multiplied by 2. Definately stock up on the Deep Woods Off

Oh yeah she's a faire virgin too!

I have witnessed the fine edged shower lines around Houston.  Truly bizarre and amazing.

To skew the countdown a wee bit, only one week and 10 hours from right now before I hitch up the trailer and take my place in line with the others.  Of course, for me that will be dependent on whether my customers leave Friday or not.  I sure hope I don't have to work Friday.

Get yourself a “NET SPEND” or similar card!
Put in $25.00 to $50.00 each paycheck, mine comes straight out of my check!

Now here is the HARD PART!!!

Forget it there until Faire!

Decide what/where you will spend it, i.e. gathering camp items (food and such)
or at Faire (food, garb, what have you).

Careful though some cards do set a limit as to how much you can load.

Looks like I shall be headed down to TRF this year, I was much saddened to nat be able to make it last year.  I will be there for the weekends of the 14-15 and 21-22...no point in drving 21 hours one way and only getting to be there for one weekend.

Nice - We'll be in our new one as well, but our buy was based on necessity as the old one up and died and left us stranded on hwy 59.  Thanks to Mayor White for Safe/Clear.  They got us off the hwy and to a an ac'd gas station / restaurant where we waited for AAA to show up.

Have you asked the nearby rennies if any would be willing to help tote a few items for you?
If you were close enough I would certainly volunteer to carry whatever we could.

Lady Laura, I am so very glad that you and your daughter are unhurt!  I've had my own experiences with drunk drivers, and it seldom turns out well for anyone.  Tell the insurance company that you require at least a mini-van as replacement because you drive the school car-pool or something similar.  It's worth a try, anyway...

Hope to meet you on AHE!!!

Second try at the tent worked- lol we had to set it up inside because of the rain- lol kitties loved it! what's important is that the model we got before mustve been 1.0, and we just got model 1.2... they reinforced the plastic bits which broke, and clarified the setup instructions. it's HUGE, a 13x9 ROOM!

we'll have a small brisket Saturday night, with some to hare, w/ tater salad and monkeybread- the nutela loki is nearly ready, as is the apple pie loki... Come Visit!

Try a Scottish hot toddy.  to a very hot cup of tea add lemon, honey, and a little bit of mint.  Last is a big double shot of 18 year old scotch.  Now pore the tea down the drain and drink the scoth and repeat till feeling no pain. 


Serious tea with honey and lemon and a bit of mint helps or at least helps my wife when she gets the flu.

7 pm- Arrive at St. Lukes Hospital in The Woodlands
11:15 pm- I am FINALLY taken to the ER to be looked at

OHHHHH MONKEYBREAD.... That makes me want to make some!
My boyfriend just brought my dog to me at my parents house so now I have my cuddle buddy which is nice since they want me to stay with them for monitoring.

TAKE YOUR VITAMINS EVERYONE! You should have seen all the sick people at the ER... on reaason it took 4 hours to get seen.... some nasty sounding stuff is floating around.

I have been chugging gallons of orange juice and praying I didn't pick something up last night from all the other sick people there.... it was truly pitiful

I feel 50 percent better.. the atshma and cough are gone, now I just have the flu symptoms... yeck. I think for about 12 hours yesterday I FORGOT I had the flu. lol.

BTW: Local Weathergirl here- Friday is up to 70% chance of thunderstorms- BUT Saturday is only 30% and Sunday even less, and the temp will at least be low 70s, so that's a benefit. SO!

let's look on the bright side-

Rain will scare off Danes, which means better pictures (I have developed a bad aversion to Joe Schmoe in his Trucker Cap and Budweiser Girls shirt getting in my shots)

Rain will ALSO, hopefully, scare off the annoying raver kids.

I mean, Ive toughed it out in worse at camp, and if it IS worse, horray! stories!!

and what's TRF without a little mud?



lol we just have to remember to keep the booze flowing to ward off the crud AFTERWARDS!

I really need to go and get a ground tarp for my tent...especially with the rain. But because of the shape of my tent,, I can't get just any ground tarp.
The guy I bought it from waterproofed the inside already. So yay!

So much to do before I leave Friday.

Hey boys and girls, be sure to head to the joust arena at dusk for the fireworks this year. I tested some effects called 'ghost mines' for the show last weekend that worked *perfectly*. It's something new for the opening part of the show that has never been done at TRF before.

I drove 53 miles one way two days running up there :) went and helped clean and dust and debug the shop on Monday and while there they said I should set up my tent...I forgot it. I drove back up yesterday and drove around the site trying to find a perfect spot :) well it's pretty dang muddy out there. So after wandering around and it was DAMN HOT!! I see this old feller making platforms for tents and we talk he charges $60.00 for the course of the event!! so he then tells me that I can camp nearer to my shop!! so we drive back and he points out a few spots and I layed out a tarp threw the tent on top and another tarp on that and tied and staked it all down since there is supposed to be a storm. I'm ready just gotta get everything in the truck :)
please come by and say "Hi" always looking to meet new friends   ;D

Good news is, the rain forecast for Friday has gone down to 60%, so there may be some hope yet- course that also means that Sat and Suns highs have gone up a smidgge as well- as long as it stays BELOW 80, I'll try not to complain...

Everything is packed and sitting by the door, list checked twice and to be marked off as it goes in the truck.  Plan to be out of here no later than 10, hopefully earlier!

Yay YaY Yay!  Now if someone could just get the rain chances to go down or away Friday, Id be in Heaven indeed!

Planning my annual last-minute pre-faire late-night trip tonight after I've finally gotten everything together and figure out what exactly I'm missing tonight. Eye doctor's appt. tomorrow to get new contacts cause mine tore *shakes fist* and I don't want to be a faerie with glasses because they will hide the pretty eye make-up I wanna do. :( :P I get paid at midnight, so I will actually be able to afford food at the festival. :D (I'm joking... food is always almost in my budget... unless I really want some garb... :P) And... I'M OFFICIALY 21 SO I CAN NOW BUY MEAD AND RUM!!! OF MY VERY VERY OWN!! :D :D :D I get off work at seven PM tomorrow, and then I'm heading straight to Plantersville. I should be getting to camp around nine, so looks like I'll be setting up by the lights of my friend's car. :D

On a kind of unrelated note, I work at a doggie daycare. I was just typing up the list of dogs that are coming tomorrow, realised (once again) that it's Friday tomorrow, and let out a very excited squeal. :D FAIRE IS LESS THAN FORTY-EIGHT HOURS AWAY, PEOPLE!!!!

Boot insoles, mug straps, Tickets, beret

I swear by mucinex and zicam.  Take both per the directions as early as the scratchy throat phase and your cold will be reduced or possibly avoided all together.

@Fae! Try and get as much rest until Faire! I don't normally take meds, so I can't give you any advice there. ^^;; haha But you must make it out to faire this weekend!! *punches fist in air determinedly* ^^

Post by: KiltedPrivateer on October 08, 2009, 03:39:48 PM
It will definitely be a chilly one Friday night and Saturday morning.  Bring lots of blankets.  If you use an air mattress it helps to put foam mats under it to insulate it from the ground.  We always throw a queen size foam cushion, found at walmart, on top of ours.  Instantly turning it into an insulated pillow top.  Makes for some very cozy Ren Faire camping.

Post by: bellevivre on October 08, 2009, 03:45:00 PM
We used to use an old wool army blanket between the air mattress and bottom sheet- lol now we just put sleeping bags on top of the mattress!

My next big WANT is the queen size sleeping bag- best of both worlds- and warmer that way too!

rethink your footware- i am wearing my merrell waterproof boots- not really ren-fit, but my leather mary janes would leave me with ICKY wet feet all day, even if it only rains on Friday- best to not take the chance...

(course I'm hoping to get that pair of Sandlar rose-theme half boots Ive been oogling for so long, but that's another matter)
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!

undercorset for Elizabethan stuff
bum roll for Elizabethan stuff

Hair pin!!

Hmmm... I should invest in some appropriate footwear for camp. Haha
I never seem to bring boots when I need them. >>; Haha

Cold first weekend, eh? Looks like I'll have to find myself a nice young man to keep me warm. ;P

*appropriate mood for faire? check...*

I normally just do air mattress and sleeping bag when it's cold. And many, many layers of clothing. haha

I forgot toilet paper once - not too bad, but inconvenient. Also a hammer/mallet for the tent stakes.

What other weird things have I forgotten? Oh yeah, ditto on safety pins and socks. Serving spoons if you are cooking: so you don't have to use stupid little plastic ones...  Oh yeah, and rain ponchos. Rain ponchos are awesome. Most of the time you don't need them, but when you do, they rock.

We should be there about 1400 or so, but we'll be hammering out passes at the back gate till 1700-ish, depending on when Mark gets there. After that, we'll be at the blacksmith shop setting up, then- depending on how we feel- wandering around faire saying allo, or sacking out.

HUZZAH!  To the people that I've met here, on R/F, and have made me feel at home... and the members of Clan McLotofus who excepted me as one of their own, Thank You.  Try to stay dry out there, today and raise one to me tomorrow!

Oct 10  Tomorrow
Mostly cloudy skies. High 74F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph.

Partly cloudy skies in the evening, then becoming cloudy overnight. Low around 60F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph.

I got on site and I SWEAR it was the only sunshiny place in miles, I watched as the clouds went right around faire... it was awesome! Faire has magic... if we all believe and tap our heels together 3 times and clap our hands a bunch.... the magic will win! I believe it!

living less than 30 miles east of faire, I can say this- the skies opened up and s**t potatoes. Massive downpour in just a short amount of time, so flooding WILL be an issue. On the good side, you WILL know where the high ground is, it'll be the only place you can set up camp without the use of SCUBA gear :D

Well, I discovered I am DEFINITELY going to need to wear my leg braces while smithing. Spent most of today laid up in my bed upstairs in pain after being on my feet all day yesterday. Currently, 3 for 4- finished out a hand-axe, and helped hammer out two railroad spike knives, but I had a wizard-handled dagger I was working on develop a shear line in the handle, so that crapped out. Should be able to salvage the blade and draw it into a spike-tang to set into an antler handle, but I was really liking the way that thing was turning out.

Met Zubaun, Blue, and a few other folks who dropped by, apologies to anyone who couldn't find me today. Tiff had a good time, and got lots of exercise walking, which she needed. It rained and mudded both days intermittently, and I swear it felt like early-to-mid November out there ;D

First burn of the season... check
First piece of wrecked steel of the season... check (was trying to learn why Breandan's attempts at making spoons always resulted in the loud clang of steel hitting the wall followed by gaelic curse words.  I understand now...)

I was busy "rennifying" my lady so I could only stop by and say "Hi" to Ms. Blue. Also stopped by the forge but it was close to closing and Sir Breandan & wife were busy.

Tried out the Prince of Wales, chocolatier (Truffles!!!), baked potato, fish and chips, chocolate dipped cheescake on a stick and a assortment of other goodies.  Saw Ded Bob, Irish and Rose and the "joust" which got a "they really do that?!" from ma lady. Stopped in and was glad to see Ms. Dra back to work as she missed Scarborough due to some injuries. Surprised the German Brothers weren't performing on Octoberfest w/e (or maybe I just missed them). But did see them in the parade along with Cassidy (hard to miss her).
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: FaeHollow on October 12, 2009, 11:09:14 AM
Hercules- The German brothers were there... they were performing at the noon and evening gathering at the front, right after the parade and right before the fireworks and they were running all over the rest of the weekend. They didn't have a set time and place to perform though.

Glad to hear people had fun!
I met Blue before the parade on Saturday.... I was a little HIGH on medication and out of it then.
I think I spotted a few of you outside POW during the parade on Saturday
Sunday I ran into Zaubon before the evening proclamation

Sorry if I was a little out of it... I found only nyquil was keeping the cough at bay and keeping me warm and cozy.... at the expense of me being a walking German zombie! :D

Post by: KiltedPrivateer on October 12, 2009, 11:49:08 AM
This was definitely a wet but fun weekend.  My weekend started at midnight thursday night / friday morning.  Kyle and I set up 2 arbors, 3 tents and 1 thirty-five foot boat deck before 4am.  The rain and wind only caused minimal damage to camp.  A little of a damper since no one could remember an opening weekend with similar weather.

On Saturday we met Bellevivre and Mitch as they rolled in and started setting up their camping gear.  I sure hope you two had a great time and I look forward to camping out with y'all again. Inside we met Breandan at the forge and I was able to practice a bit of my gaelic. We missed most of you at the POW as we were late getting over there.  But theres always AHE.  Our daughter had a great time even though she went into shy mode everytime the faeries came around.  Yet she bugged us all morning about getting in and seeing the faeries.  Ah the joys of a three year old.

Sunday we never made it in as we used every break in the rain to pack up our gear.  That was a bit of a bummer - Just another reason to look forward to AHE.

I've still got a new skirt to make, but I could get along without it (it's not like I couldn't substitute any one of several different skirts from my mundane wardrobe to replace the new one, anyway...).  I'm not finished with my invasion-wear, though, and that takes precedence over the skirt!  Mostly it's favors that I'm rushing through, and I finally got the last thing I needed just about 45 minutes ago, so they'll all be done by this weekend.  The skirt will take no more than two days, so I've got time, but I work harder under pressure...  ::)  LOL

You'd think with three in almost everything- the sacred realms of Tír na nÓg, Tír na Bheatha, and Tír Tairngire (Sky, Land, and Sea respectively), the triplicate motif in so much of our sacral art and iconography back into the neolithic period, triune deities (three deities who were like triplets, each an individual, but eternally bound to the other two as part of a greater whole), and so on- that you'd think we would've invented Base Three math. In which case, we'd be two threes of three minus three and one days away. On second thought, screw it, base ten works better :D


I actually succeeded in making my brain hurt developing a base-three math system at 4am. I heard my inner child scream in his cage, it wasn't pretty

If ever there was a weakness possessed by a male Ahrugan warrior, it was his soft spot for women, especially innocent-looking ones, and MOST especially beautiful innocent-looking ones. This was why so many women in the Ahrugan military spent so much of their time smacking love-sick warriors out of their reveries to get them back to the task at hand.

Unfortunately, the way things are looking- barring finding a good job domestically (I swear, if I get told I am overqualified one more damned time... *makes strangling motion*)- I will be having to throw my hat in for a medic position with Triple-C, and if I don't get the job, I'll be in an accelerated program to get my paramedic cert. So, either way, TRF is looking dodgy at best. So, getting the countdown now helps me feel a bit of it :D

I am still not sure when me and mine are heading up there but I can definietly push for it being that date...Her family will be in tow and I will be unofficially shopping for wedding ideas. OH! How it has slipped my mind. I decided not to wait until TRF to propose to her, I did it March 20 at the kick-off of our St. Pat's....I proposed to a girl with The One Ring and she said yes....Now you KNOW that's a keeper. So, this trip will also be the unofficial touring of the grounds, as I will be getting married next April 23 at Scarby....okay, thats the unasked for update for me. I will do my best to see you there. As for getting my liver ready, well, let's not let my first walkabout with the future fam be marred by my drunkenness....Save that for TRF.

The high school play I am directing opens 2 weeks from that weekend and consists of 30 freshman and sophmores. I would have a hell of a time getting them to come to rehearsal on the weekend.  I think we'll just have a real long Friday rehearsal then call it a weekend. I am currently sewing my costume... YAY... I'll be doing the Fae thing... hope it isn't a freak snowstorm in April weekend... as I am making this dress for hot weather. I don't know who I will be bringing with me. All my friends seem to not be able to go that weekend. I am kind of a clingy person and like to have someone with me when I drive up and go in... I feel weird being alone at all. The boyfriend hates ren faires so he will prolly not be there with me....he ruins my faire fun if he comes with me so better to leave him at home.

Fae, you tell boyfriend that if he wants to make it to be Mr. Fae Hollow, he needs to get with the program and love him some faire already....though I think one night of camping and some home brew may change his mind on the subject....or turn it to mush.

Post by: FaeHollow on March 29, 2010, 08:33:29 PM
Oh Mouse... I have taken him 2 years in a row as a patron and he visited me this year... he hates it. He thinks its a culture that I don't fit into... you see we know someone who cheated on her husband with someone from faire... and he assumes that faire promotes sexual promiscuity... in reality... that girl was just looking for a chance to cheat... it could have happened anywhere. I am a very conservative girl who does all of this because I love the environment, regardless of how tainted it may be to him because of a bad incident. The husband that was cheated on happens to be his brother so it hit kind of close to home. I don't know if we will ever get him back to faire. It really isn't his cup of tea. You really have to love it... and he never really did... even before the incident. I hate to say that faire could break us up one day... but I care about it a lot... and he would love to see me not participate... I dunno... we shall see!
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: Mouse on March 29, 2010, 09:30:00 PM
One would think that faire could promote promiscuity but honestly I only see ithappen to the ones that were themselves promiscuous to begin with *Don't judge me!*...For the most part the people I know, and I am not conservative at all, are very low key. They have FUN, but they don't do anything that they will regret in the morning..other than the hang over. The faire people I know are even more so...though they have the partying down to an exact science me thinks. I do know a few playtrons who adhere to what happens at ren faire...(goes on youtube.) Not really, but one day *look for my youtube premiere debut coming soon* I guess it's the experiences that are laid out for you, but I can't really fathom any person judging a culture based on a cross-section as limited as that...If I were to do that, I would of written of faire a long time ago as anything but another reason to dress up just to dress down later that night. *Well we do, but we do in a non-Bacchanalian way* I met the people that made faire what it was and was lucky enough to have friends that were so in love with faire they kept me from going down that path....Best of luck to you Fae. Can't wait for the day you and he move into your sidhe once he comes around.

The Fairies I know wouldn't be in the glass with the rum for very long... the rum would be in the Fairy, who would probably be unable to get out of the glass... but there would be no rum in sight!  :o

Oh... and drunken Fairies can be really... MEAN!!!

You say MEAN!!!...I say weekend hobby, same diff. ANd all the fairies I have encountered have been drunken, even the ones that I happen to run across on 6th St. in Austin, much to my discomfort...suffice to say, all fairies are drunk all the time, well the dangerous ones anyways..and pixies too. Definitely the pixies.

The pixie who lives on my left shoulder only drinks when I do, and that is certainly a great deal less than... well, most of the people I know here on R/F, anyway!  :P  heheh

Muddled... isn't that what they do to mulling spices when they put them in a mortar and mash them with a pestle?  After which simmering wine is generally poured over them?!?

I tried to explain to my friend about TRF...She said that she wasn't so sure of it, wasn't sure she spoke the 'language of the land', so to speak. I advised her of a trick. Public intoxication. It's the accent that accompanies the language, helps you fit in better and loosens the tongue.

ugh... hello people... I just thought I'd drop in with news of my own... don't know a better thread to put it in. On Friday I broke up with my boyfriend, my first love and consequently broke my own heart. I had been lying to myself for a long time by saying I was in love with him. I love him, I care for him, I am comfortable with him.... but not IN love. So I finally broke down and did it. I feel beyond horrible. He feels bad, I blindsided him. I feel bad cause he feels bad, and because I had a constant companion for 2 and a half years and have suddenly made the choice to get rid of it. It's hard... possibly the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I desire passion and fire... not comfortability. It's strange... I had to be the strongest I have ever been to go through with it and now I feel the weakest I have ever been. I am doubting it and feeling that I made a mistake... I know thats my broken and lonliness talking though. How long does it take to feel better? I am making progress for just 2 days... I cried all day yesterday... today I barely cried at all. I thought I would share it with you guys... people like you make me happy, give me a happy and safe place to land.

I'm so sorry, Fae!   There's really nothing anyone can say to ease the pain but you're a strong woman.  It didn't kill you, so it will only make you stronger.

Post by: Breandan on April 12, 2010, 12:57:30 PM
*HUGS!*

Trust me Fae, went through something similar after an eight year marriage that had gone south about halfway through, but I refused to see it till it got VERY bad. Each person's different, but my advice to you is simple: focus on you for a bit, don't jump into any new relationships for a while, and do NOT turn to booze, it's bad for you and will tell you lies.  *HUGS!*  You'll pull through this, you're already getting there quickly
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: Mouse on April 12, 2010, 01:21:11 PM
Breandan speaks wisely Fae. I went through something akin to Breandan's situation but there was my daughter involved. Sometimes you refuse to see or you allow yourself to fall into a niche, but most people don't have the strength of their convictions to pull themselves up and reclaim what they cast aside. I know in my case I did what I did to save that fire you spoke of, so I could give my daughter something more than an ember. Step by step and faire by faire. We are here for you.

Fae my heart goes out to you!  It's tough ending a relationship, even if it is for the best.  These gentlemen have given you some sound advice.  Be sure to repeat it to yourself when you feel down.  :)
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: FaeHollow on April 12, 2010, 09:25:44 PM
I am feeling so much better with the advice. I have been talking to people who hadn't gone through similar situations, some had married their first love and it seemed like they KNEW my pain, but didn't have the same grasp of my specific pain in relation to the situation I was dealing with. Hearing that this is similar to an 8 year marriage makes me feel not so alone, and I am sure the pain isn't as strong because of the time... i wasn't even near 8 years.. whew! I am so lucky to have found this place, found faires and it is keeping me strong knowing that I am being true to myself, and faire is the only place I can feel 100% me, he had a severe problem with faire so it hurt me to know he wasn't accepting of me at my most... well.. ME! Thank you guys so much for the support, you really have no clue how much it means to me!

Fae, I'm not going to tell you that you did the right thing. You know you did or you wouldn't have done it. What I will tell you is that years down the road you will look back on this from a completly different vantage point. You will see and understand things later in life much better than you do now. And you will be better and stronger for it.

(sigh) Guess we'd better bring the swatches out that weekend so Mouse can start picking his color scheme, eh?  Will we have to take him on a tour of the kitchens so he can choose a caterer, also?  Oh, I know!!!  A "garb walk", so he can decide who to have outfit the wedding party!  No wonder he was warning us, ladies...  :P  :D

OK, so I"m still very excited about TRF, but completely up in the air too.  My awesome twin cohert in crime is moving far far away to Hawai at the beginning of August.  My mom can come to fair every now and then and she's OK at dressing me, but not awesome and she usually only likes to come one day out of the weekend.  So I need a new cohert!  Not only will I need someone to dress me, but who will I hang out with non-stop and play with and pretend with....  sigh...  I think fair will be the number one place I will miss her at, especially TRF!!

Why would anyone be surprised that Mouse has a filthy mind? Well, except for the poor unsuspecting future Mrs Mouse. She's the one we should be concerned about. That poor little girl is going to be in for a real shock. Fraser, break out the good Scotch (the 21 year old stuff) Mrs Mouse is going to be needing to brace up her internal fortitude.

Basic Brown and/or Black Leather and Fur for a color scheme - no coordination needed!  ;)   ;D

There is video proof of my twin sister and a close friend plus tequilla and a few guys...  they tried their damndest to destroy that tape, got themselves invited back over to these fellas house to try and find it and destroy it... never found out what happened to it.  However, if you ever find a video with "tequilla body shots" and someone who looks like me, I SWEAR it wasn't me!!!!  (really it was her, but that excuse doesn't work for many people, haha!) 

LOTS TEQUILLA = NO CLOTHES!

Well, for me, anyway, LOTS of tequila means hugging the porcelain god all night, and usually well into the next day, so I tend to avoid that if at all possible!  A little tequila can be lots of fun, however...   ;)  :P  heheh

They don't usually start that before full dark, so we should have some time!  :D

I think that was Advent that was throwing up outside my tent. The URKing noise started in the next tent over, which was where Ash and Advent were camped. I don't know, except that the splashing noise was fairly close.

Not to worry Rani, this is fairly common which is one reason there are trashcans all throughout McLot camp site. Unless you are Fraser who gets tanked on his one beer and then spews it like a fountain. Never seen anything like that before. You'd think a grown man could handle one beer.
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: Rani Zemirah on May 10, 2010, 09:51:45 PM
Oh... I can see this is about to turn into a bloody battleground, so I think I might just stand over here to the side and watch you two duke it out! 

Now see... this is why I only drink until I feel like I could possibly decide to do something rash if I were to have one more... and then I switch to water.  Or... if I stand up and feel any vertigo at all, even just the tiniest bit, then I know it's time to quit.  This is called drinking responsibly, and does NOT involve "sharing" the contents of your stomach with your neighbors, or falling into the fire and ridding yourself of all visible body hair, or even feeling like a cat peed in your mouth the next morning... and it also does not involve the pain of drunken stumbling into tent ropes, tents, vehicles or trash cans! 

Ummm, however... this rule does not apply to New Years Eve.   :o  :P  ::)

Ok... maybe I should clarify that it did not apply to last New Year's Eve... but I doubt I'll be forgetting it again...  :-X

In my defense, however... it had been several years since I had gotten any more than even pleasantly tipsy, and I forgot to drink the water before I went to sleep...  (note that I said "went to sleep" and not "passed out"... oh, and I was only ill the next day, and not at all that night)  Of course, with all the different kinds of booze we were all mixing, I'm amazed that no one... lost their composure.  It was quite the party!!!  :D

I never knew that this would be my passion! I spent 4 years in college looking for my passion... I knew it had to do with theatre but had NO clue why I wasn't happy acting and only acting. I felt like I had wasted 4 years of college doing something stupid and needed to quickly fix it... so I went and applied for an education minor... and this semester when student teaching those kids I realized I can't be all about me and just act and not have a way of passing it down to the kids.... and now I realize I am my happiest doing just that so yay for that! :D I am excited for fall... TRF and Teaching its gonna be stressful tiring and AWESOME!
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: Rani Zemirah on May 14, 2010, 02:49:45 PM
So glad that there are kids who will benefit from all that passion!  It's important for them to be shown that fantasy, role playing and creative exploration are as vital to their well being as academics, and should be an integral and enriching part of everyone's lives.  Thank you, Fae, for giving something to our children that they might not otherwise find on their own...  :)

Mouse brand witticisms: They may not all be sharp, but they are pointy. Neutered you say? To this I say,

Complacently strokin' his madam.

Maybe you do still have some of that piss & vinegar left in you. Time will tell, time will tell.

It's one thing to give your heart to the one person that you will love till the sun grows cold and the stars grow old, that one that you literally give the rest of your life to. It's quite another to change who and what you are to suit someone else.

If they truly love you, they love you just as you are.

In all truth, she enhances me. Hasn't tried to change me any. She is as odd as me and if anything she could teach me a little humility and discipline *insert jokes here* Only time in my life I haven't had to change for a woman. I promise, I will still be full of piss and vinegar for years to come...that phrase explains my charm it seems.

Post by: Mouse on May 27, 2010, 11:21:01 AM
OH! I didn't see Rani's "phoning it in" comment..I was wondering where this direction in the conversation came from. I am not phoning it in. Sometimes I'm on fire, sometimes I smolder, most times though, I spark, but don't catch. I pun therefore I am. Truth be told, I laugh at my own jokes more than others and I chuckle to myself because a thought comes into my head, but I don't share it with anyone because I usually get groans and eye rolls, or silence. Usually silence..and I enjoy that. I will try to bring my A game in the future, but my phoning it in is actual the measure of my humour. It's all of you who usually put me on the floor laughing.

if its any consolation, Mouse, you've been busy dealing with the chaos of a new relationship. I have been dealing with the chaos of a new life, said life apparently having a portal inside her body that connects via quantum tunnel to a parallel universe comprised of sulfuric gas. You're planning a wedding, I'm dealing with a 14 pound bundle of gassy joy who's poots could peel paint and knock buzzards off of corpse wagons. You lucky bastard   :P

Oh, I got my quantum bundle of joy already on her way to being grown up and in control of her bodily functions...I slapped a Heisenberg Overrider on her for her 1st birthday..made a world of difference.

Splinter is a rat, not a mouse.

Pig cheek and bacon for me please. I heard of a place in FL that will let you hog hunt with the weapon of your choice...I have always wanted to waylay a charging pig with a katana...Bet you I can only do it once, but most likely not at all. *RIP MOUSE*

Clatto Verata N... Necktie... Neckturn... Nickel... It's an "N" word, it's definitely an "N" word! Clatto... Verata... (cough)...All right then.

Good, bad. I'm the guy with the gun

*All from Army of Darkness, but we each have our favourites. By the by, check out Evil Dead: The Musical...as someone who hasn't liked musicals for a long time, outside of Dr. Horrible, Repo:The Genetic Opera, and Thoroughly Modern Millie, (don't ask, I know it's out of place), the Evil Dead musical is actually quite good, featuring such hit's as "What the f*ck was that?"....now back to the regularly scheduled sarcasm and thread topic.

Hell, I did a bodyguard detail for Tommy Makem when he was touring the States, THAT was a blast. Bruce was a hoot, though, about like you would expect in person- good sense of humour, Ash-like cockiness, smartassed, but a good guy.

Yeah, you might want to be a might more careful in publicly posting statements like that. I hear there's a possible future misses. I say "possible" because making public statements like that are likely to lead to severe bodily harm, just before she puts a stop to the "future misses" part. I'm just saying. It's your funeral.

You're not intimidating...though in nature animals tend to stray away from other animals that just 'aren't right', i.e. rabies or just plain crazy...I've seen it before.

Not a bit. I think you fit right in. Don't forget that that was AHE. AHE is when the stupid and the amateurs all get together and have a group brain dump, and then run around trying to disrupt the rest of us. So when you walked into me, I wasn't expecting to be meeting a friend.

Yeah, you're probably right about the midget tossing. Fraser and Filthy are juswt the pair to start a game. However, I do think you would have a bit of difficulty reaching his head, even with a cane. No slam there, just an observation.

Can't reach your head?! Ever heard of a Kangaroo Mouse? And Draconnia, I've had someone ask a girl I was dating that once..seems in my past I attracted tall girls??? and I don't know why. Never made me huffy. A tall girl dating a short guy is the Universes way of letting the world know 'Obviously she knows something we don't...why else would she." Short men...the world's best kept secret. Now..excuse me while I venture back to my sidhe to hear myself talk. There was a psych book my fiancé's mom had that stated, and I paraphrase "The Irish, namely Irish men, love to hear themselves talk." Pair that with my German lineage and well...ego abound.

And I'm a Mouse, not a Naked Mole Rat....though with enough enticing ...*leers at room*

:P  :D

The joys (and pitfalls) of generalization...  We are who we are, and our ancestors have very little to do with that, beyond genetic predisposition to certain maladies or physical traits, but a man who isn't taught the proper ways to appease a woman is still worthless to her, be he descended from the Irish, German or any other heritage...  :P

If people were truly concerned and offended by what they saw and read in this thread, then they need to stay away from faire, because I have seen more and worse on broadcast television. If you don't like what you see, stop looking. Or perhaps you enoy the flexing of your imaginary power of making people do as you wish, which I find morally reprehensible. But go ahead, hide in the shadows and demonstrate what is becoming the worse part of our society and country. Show us how freedom of speech was a waste of the lives of our forebearers.

Actually, I'm libertarian. Live and let live. Don't screw with me and I won't screw with you. And that's what PC is; screwing with people. In stead of allowing people to be themselves, PC forces people into a behavioural mold. Last time I read through the Constitution there wasn't anything in there about freedom from being offended. If something offends you, walk away, turn away, change the channel, turn it off. But no, what we have instead are people that use the legal system and peer presure to beat everyone into conformity. Odd thing is, that's why the pilgrims sailed from England to the new world; for freedom from being beaten into religious conformity. That's why many people come to this country seeking politcal exile; seeking to keep from being beaten into political conformity. How ironic is that?

If we keep giving into PC pressure some day, someone just might tell us that faire isn't PC.

..........

I had my first run in with Jack Daniels and now......I think I will stay away from him.....his friendship is not very kind the morning after....I think I will stay away from him from now on.....yup I don't think I want to play with him anymore.
Title: Re: Let The Countdown Begin!
Post by: Rani Zemirah on June 20, 2010, 01:23:22 AM
Blender roulette... you know, where you just take whatever comes out of the blender!  Because, well... it being Faire and all... there's bound to be rum in it, and it will most definitely taste good, so it's not technically mixing boozes (except for those frozen Long Island Iced Teas, of course... :P ), so it's fairly safe, unless you lose track of how many you've had, of course! 

Oh, and Jack isn't such a bad guy... you just have to know when to tell him it's time to go!  After a certain point they all make you feel like that, and the secret is to not let things go that far...  ;)

Easier said than done during a rousing round of Blender Roulette, however!  Particularly when there are things like Pineapple Rum out there!!!  :D It's waaaay too easy to drink too many frou-frou frozen drinks, because you just can't taste the liquor, but there's a trick to that, also.  Drink at least 1-2 tankards of water for every one of mixed drink, and you should be fine, because you'll stay hydrated and you won't have enough room to drink as much booze!  LOL

Post by: Rani Zemirah on June 20, 2010, 12:13:32 PM
I think it all depends on how you drink what you drink.  Personally, I prefer brewed cider, and I can sip it all day without getting much of a buzz, and as long as I drink plenty of water also then the sugar doesn't bother me, either.  I can handle 3-4 frozen frou-frou drinks, but I know my limit, and then I just switch to straight water.  It's when I start mixing different types of liquor that I don't do so well, but that's usually the next day, and it still doesn't get too bad if I remember the water... but last NYE was the first time I've been hungover in probably over 12-13 years, so it was a real shock to be so... forcefully reminded to... NEVER FORGET TO DRINK THE WATER!!!

Of course, I can count on the fingers of... ok, both hands... how many times I've had any alcohol to drink at all in all that time, also, so it's not like I have much tolerance.

Watching Firefly. Again. It's some of the best television made in an extremly long time. I'm still considering putting together a posse to go hunt down the f#$%er at Fox that canceled the series.

I was just chatting with Mouse and he pointed out that Fox has cancelled every series that Whedon has put out, all of them big money earners for everyone, including Fox. I told him that I would swear that there's a 9 year old little b#$%ch at Fox that's having a jealous tantrum about Whedon's talent, so they get him cancelled.

LOL  He answers once in a while... but only if I don't tease him.  He's... sensitive, maybe.  :P  heheh

Oh, and they're absolutely right about Firefly, although it just kinda... cuts off, without really "ending", so that's a bit frustrating...  (not that I would know anything about frustration, of course...)  :P

"It's been too long since I've had something twixt my nether's that wasn't battery operated"

I love that line!
"The legs! [laughs] Oh yeah, definitely have to say it was her legs. You can put that down. Her legs, and right where her legs... meet her back. Tha— actually, that whole area. That, and... and above it. [...] Have you seen what she wears? Forget about it. Have you ever been with a warrior woman?"

and

"I'm starting to like this poetry thing. "Here lies my beloved Zoe, my autumn flower... somewhat less attractive now that she's all corpsified and gross"


My two favourite lines.

And I answered your answer... so there!  :P  This could go on all day...  ::)


Oh, and just a couple of my faves are...

Jayne: "Ten percent of nuthin' is...let me do the math here...nuthin' into nuthin'...carry the nuthin'..."  (complete with "concentration" face and "adding" hand motions)

and...

Jayne: "Do you know what the chain of command is here? It's the chain I go get and beat you with to show you who's in command."

Yeah... Mal is my "hero", of course (not to mention the drool-worthy sexy one...) but Jayne is the smart@ss hellraiser in me who just wants to cut loose and have a little fun (by, uhhh... beating things to a bloody pulp... and then shooting them)  :D
