Folks, THIS: Is not sexual.  This is a mother feeding her kid.  There are medieval religious paintings of Madonna and Child more provocative than this.  Get over it already.

I hadn’t forgotten Sabine. So – here is one more totally-SCA Q&A: “As someone who has sat on the Thrones thru 2 Gulf Wars – What do you think about Opening Ceremonies? Wouldn’t it be great if we put more effort into them? Enough effort that people would want to show up? And to start down […]

I had a weekend breather – an absolutely fabulous weekend, actually.  Bambi and Charles came.  There was an event TEN MINUTES from my doorstep, which we daytripped.  I aquitted myself respectably, despite having NO sleep the night before and breaking my greatsword.  I did take it easy and knocked it off early because during the […]

What is it about hair stylists that they hate long hair? I will admit to one vanity.  The only really good feature that I think I have is my hair.  It’s auburn and wavy and long.   It had finally reached my waist and was full and thick, and I am proud to say, was a […]

Today the trash people came and took away my hope chest. Luckily I was not there to see it.  Kris was.  He said they had to bust it up to dump it in the garbage truck. I guess I knew it couldn’t be saved when I insisted on pulling it out of the house during […]

After all that gut spilling, I need something on the light side. I got another couple of deep thought blogs left, but it’s Friday, and I just can’t be that serious. Sara’s and Stephanie’s questions go hand-in-hand, so I will run with that, at the risk cutting the length of time I can milk this material. […]

Okay, I am going to tackle a couple of the hard ones.  Now we are getting into deep-thought-self-examination territory.  It’s not that I don’t DO it.  I just don’t often write about it or talk about it – somehow whenever you try to explain your own motivations or ideals, it always comes out as pompous […]

This is your real-life interlude amongst the SCA-focused trend my exercise in material generation seems to have taken.  Boy.  I can see where the readership comes from.  Or at least the vocal portion. (Edited to add a personal note to Glas and Charlotte – your answers are in the comments section of the original blog.  […]
