Okay, I am officially taking 5 minutes from the drawing board to post an abridged Pennsic recap.

Pennsic Highlights:

  • Carlos' Birthday party: Featuring a performance by our resident belly dancer, lots of friends, birthay cookie, instant Viking firepit (do not add water!), and Roaming Limbo Party (with kazoos!).

  • Rapier Town Battle: We rocked! Best moment? After the battle, when the Queen of the East approached a gaggle of fencers and asked us "Are you Atlantians? You rock!"

  • Atlantian 5 Man Tournament: Featuring ballistabob, bahtyoun, alricthemad, matthew_g and Yours Truly. We made it into the Semifinals, and we perfected the art of demolishing the other team in less than 30 seconds. (And a damned good team it was!) It also meant that we had to make it to Atlantian Court in true Atlantian fashion: Right from the list field, and without having time to even change into a clean shirt. Quite amusing.

  • azpapillion's Pearl.

  • Having matthew_g and much_ado at camp for dinner. They are awesome.

  • Shopping! Lots of linen, a new pair of really comfy ghilly shoes to wear with my nifty chiton (heck, even Carlos got a pair!), a new pair of boots in order, and lots of other goodies. Oh, and a really nice Sea Stag pin for ballistabob from White Swan.

  • Pennsic Choir: The Alle Psalliters do it again! I have a video recording of our performance (Dindirin), and I am just trying to figure out how to make it a smaller file so I can post it to my webpage.

  • Volgemut showing up at our Pennsic Choir performance.

  • New household member. Yarrrr!!!!!!!!!

  • Pirate Dice.

  • Spending time with my friends.

  • A really nice, overdue conversation with my son. I am so proud of him!

    And that's it for now. I will probably be elaborating more on our adventures, but for now I need to go back to the salt mines.

    I believe I hear the whip cracking . . .

    The instant firepit?

    yea that. Just add sand.
    Another reason to keep sand in your trunk. Like I needed another one...

    Yeah, we love our instant firepit. We keep the frame in our storage unit, and we just fill it with sand every year. When we break down camp, we simply shove the sand into the sink and shower sumps, which improves the land :-D

    This is an intruiging concept. may have to try that in the future...
