After all the madness to finish Project Wilhelmina, it feels strange not to be working on a project.

I've been vegging all week, and my claim to fame so far is having done a load of laundry and uploaded the Chalice pictures to my Community Webshots account.

Yay me!

(Of course, work has kept me busy, but I am not counting that.)

So what's next? I ask myself . . .

Lemmesee . . . for one thing, attending fencing practice this Thursday for a change. And I will need it if we are to make it to Masters of Defence this Saturday.

Let's see if I remember which way the pointy end goes.

Oh, I know! It goes into in the other guy!

But I digress . . .

So okay, my next major project will not involve any sewing, knitting or embroidering. It will involve singing.

Yup, I must prepare for War of the Wings, where I will be joining the Ponte Alto Performing Contingent. There is a piece that I find very interesting (actually two), and I must prepare documentation and practice this sucker.

That, and updating my webpage, as well as ballistabob's, Seamus', and geoffreyapclwyd's.

And of course, at one point I will have to go back to my French Gown of Insanity. But since there is no deadline for that, I can work on it at leisure. I am hoping for it to make its debut either at 12th Night or KASF.

My other projects will also involve cutting Carlos' leine, so I can give his back to Ruadhri; fixing Marcellus' new venetians; embroidering Seamus' linen gold scarf; and (here's to hope) making Carlos a new doublet and breeches for 12th Night.

But again, since none of those have an immediate deadline, I don't have to freak out.


In the meantime, I can concentrate on other things such as fencing, doing laundry, updating pages, and cleaning the house.

Life is good.

Hey what's with you guys fighting with Windmasters? All the cool people are fighting for Sacred Stone. You don't really want to fight with the stuck up Provosts do you?

Dammit, just one melee event I want to go and not have to worry about FFG (Pennsic doesn't count).

Mwahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!! And it's not just FFG, it's the entire Ponte Alto Contingent ;-)

Umm sorry, FFG are the only Pontoons I worry about. Especially now that you have snatched up Hadururus (sp?).

And not the entire Ponte Alto contingent, Alric will be fighting with the Dragoons and Sacred Stone i.e. he will be winning.

Actually, Alric is Roxbury Mill, not Ponte Alto. ;-)

But, my Cuddly Orange Terror, it is Ponte Alto that produces our fighters, not the other way around. Marcellus, myself and others were Pontoons before we created FFG. When it comes to fighting, it is Ponte Alto that counts, not Fallen From Grace.

We fight for the Barony, not for the Household, and we train our fighters as Baronial fighters, not household fighters.

Some of them end up in the household, but not because they do rapier. Our criteria for household members has nothing to do with how well you fight or how good you are with any specific discipline.

We are very proud of our Ponte Alto fighters. We work hard at training them and we have gone out of our way to make a team spirit as Ponte Alto.

The day we fight as Fallen From Grace only, that's when our Baronial forces will weaken and die.

FFG is nothing more -- and nothing less -- than Another Fine Product of Ponte Alto (AFPOPA). We strive to inspire all of our fighters. Every single one of them is valuable to us, and we train and nurtrure each and every one of them.

And that's how you build a Baronial fighting force :-)

Oh, and I might add that although Alric is Roxbury Mill, we consider him one of ours ;-)

Amen, sister! We are Pontoons, and damned proud of it! My brother & sister in law were the founding Baron & Baroness, and I would be a piss-poor member of this Barony, this household, and my family to not honor Ponte Alto!

For the record, Dom - FFG did not "snatch up" Haderus. We do not recruite, we do not cajol, we do not badger, bait, trap or otherwise go looking for people. You are either "fallen from grace" - or you are not. Haderus, happily, fell from grace right onto our doorstep. Some of us didn't think he had at first, but he took a left turn on the way to Albequerque . . . .
