My sisters and brother-in-law were Greek gods for Halloween. We looked awesome! I had a hard time making a costume, I had to keep telling myself "It's not SCA garb, it is a costume". I wore 2 things I almost never do, makeup and jewelry. My sisters say I looked beautiful. lol
We went to a bar in Owatonna that my sister goes for their Halloween party every year. We pretty much just staked a claim on a small table in the back and drank and observed people and their costumes. There were some real winners and many not PG-13. At one point my brother-in-law paid the guys to throw my sisters and I into "jail" where we had to hang out for 15 minutes. Other people in "jail" forced me to dance and have a good time.
We took a taxi to my sisters house and watched movies and I fell asleep on her couch.
I should go out and play with adults more often.
I'm not sure I understand the comment in the LoAR...
"The documentation for the name was inadequately summarized on the LoI. A source was cited, but no page numbers or dates for the elements were given. Had the commenters not provided alternative documentation for the name, we would have been forced to pend or return this.".
Now I have a photocopy of my paperwork and page numbers and everything were included... So I don't understand why they wrote this.
I'm trying not to be bothered by it since it passed anyway.
I think I will celebrate by making Ishikawa something new to wear :D
It's a little tricky though since they boys are at grandmas the last week and a half and I am sizing the new tunics on one of their dress shirts. I hope they fit.
Btw, if anyone cares, I am using the pattern RH004 - 12th through 16th c Peasant Man from Reconstructing History. I still hate gores.
Note to self, less glue when making sensu, mine looked messed up.
Also, my daughter Ashley is awesome. She said so herself. She did help me get back into my pants when I had to use the restroom.
Sunday I joined a couple Shire members and manned a demo table at Solstice. Several interested people took fliers. The day rained and misted on us and was generally unpleasant.
*for those who remember seeing me at Boars Head last December, that garb was loaned to me.
Tonight it is HOT and last night it was HOT. I can't sleep for crying out loud. I swear I need to move to Alaska or something.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do this weekend. I was planning to go to Castle Fever (SCA event) but I don't know that I have it in me... Besides at least 1 child needs new garb and has nothing to wear even for 1 day. Also, I have been invited to go to Mom and Dad's cabin Sunday. Monday my daughter has several marching band things to go to. It is possible that I could day trip Castle Fever on Saturday, but I don't know.
Oh, and it's not much but I think I actually helped someone out on sca-jml and they thanked me! It was a heraldry question and I am a herald. At least they didn't complain how my answer wasn't good enough...
I am class coordenator for our shires event in August and I have done NOTHING so far. I better get on the ball. If anyone wants to teach something at St. Radegund's Fair in Northshield, lemme know.
My daughter is cutting out a new hood and my boys are planning their new outfits. I love my SCA kids. It's nice that they can have something to do with their garb and I don't have to do all the planning and work. Ok, I still do most of the work but they are actually involved now.
I am shopping for a new tent. I'm not sure what to get yet. It must be easy to set up so that my kids and I can do it.
I met my husband in the SCA years ago but he no longer wants to play. Even if he did his work schedule is Friday - Monday and he doesn't believe in taking vacation. I joke that I am a SCA widow.
Speak of the devi, I think he is home.
