For the record, I am not following the thread on the lawsuit on the SCA and the background checks. There has been enough drama to produce a Mexican soap opera this week, and I think that we all have better things to do.

There, I said it.

At any rate, I showed up for rapier practice last night, and it was extra-special since it was Hadrurus' last practice. He has received his orders and will be shipped out to Germany in a couple of days.

We are very saddened because we are losing him. He has been one of the greatest additions to our Household and to our Barony. However, we are very happy for him because he will be rejoining his adorable wife, shenafin, who we also miss sorely.

The good news is, they will be with us at Pennsic, and we can't wait to spend time with them.


I have the most wonderful husband in the world.

Last night he tells me:

"Oh, by the way. Your posting of the other day? Taken care of. Happy Mother's day."

"What posting?"

"The one where you said you wanted a massage and a pedicure. Look in your email inbox."

I did.

There is a nifty certificate for the Red Door, which includes a massage, manicure, pedicure, and an Elizabeth Arden robe.

I love my husband and I am a very lucky woman . . .


And now, for something completely different.

I didn't write this. This is just something someone shared with me, and I thought that it would put a smile on people's faces on this lovely Friday afternoon.

WORDS THAT WOMEN USE

1.) "FINE": This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right, and you need to shut up.

2.) "Five Minutes": If she is getting dressed, this means half an hour. Don't be mad about this, it is just the same 5 minutes you use when it's your turn to help do things around the house.

3.) "Nothing": This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine (see #1).

4.) "Go Ahead": This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5.) "Loud Sigh": This is not actually a word but a non-verbal statement often isunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6.) "That's Okay": This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. "That's okay" means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7.) "Thanks": A woman is thanking you. Do not question or faint. Just say you're welcome.

8.) "Whatever": Is a woman's way of saying "%@&* YOU!"

9.) "Don't worry about it, I got it": Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is nowdoing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "what's wrong" - for the woman's response refer to #3.

Happy Friday everyone!

I've gotten to the point that I open my Merry Rose digests, skim the headers, and just delete them again. Too much of the same stuff, over and over.

And yes, you have a truly wonderful husband! Hurray for relaxation and massages!!

Yes, you are a very lucky woman. I love my Navigator, but he is not a hint man (intended or unintended). I have to spell things out for him. Since I work with engineers every day, this is not a problem.

All guys have their quirks. Your Navigator is a wonderful guy, even if he doesn't take a hint.

Then again, we knew that. Remember "pulling a Greta" and hitting him on the head, which resulted in you two finally going out on a date? :-)

He did eventually take the hint and never looked back.

Hi geoffreyapclwyd!
