remember when i said that i wouldn't be doing that again?

well. as it turns out, i will be.

you don't remember? oh. right. to be specific, i'm talking about the fact that i'm going to lace myself into a bodice and prance around on a stage and sing. at a renaissance fair. i know. i can't believe it either.

i have to go back to the 2005 archives to find the last time i even thought about joining my friends at the CT Ren faire.

but, for some reason, this year i decided -- while sifting through a rubbermaid container of halloween costumes (and i confess, i don't know a single other adult who has as many as i do) -- that i haven't done it in a while, and my friends could use the third voice to their usual twosome (and we do sound lovely as a trio) so, why not?

because i have to lace myself into a bodice that pushes my boobs to my chin and makes breathing an option. that is why not.

it *is* fun -- i love the comraderie and the showmanship. some of the performers are beyond amazing. but those people that walk around with the pointy ears and the leather zena warrior princess outfits? i find them odd, and not at all true to the historical period represented.

and really, when it comes down to it. can you imagine the blog material i'll have for the next couple of weeks?

After having seen sj in her period dress several times now, I have to say, she pulls it off amazingly!

Hmm... I think the best thing about medieval fairs would be the opportunity to messily eat large hunks of meat right off the bone...

Or have I just been married to a vegetarian for too long?

I had friends when I lived in Connecticut who went to that fair. I'd greatly enjoy it if you went. From what they told me, there is a lot of crazy drug use(not by them, though).
