University

University was a lot of fun, and riding with ballistabob and reasdream was a hoot.

The first class I took was Celric's Period Backgammon. I loved it. I also know now what we are going to be playing a lot of at Pennsic --besides "Texas Hold'em." Did you know that you can play a mean variety of Backgammon with up to four players? I am soooo taking my set to camp! Sir Corby's class on how to command a unit was also really good, and I am hoping to put this knowledge to good use. I also took a class on Court Heraldry, which gave me some insight about what Court Heralds do before, during and after Court. Once my term is over as Baroness, I may want to do something like that. (In my copious spare time!)

I was really happy on how my own class turned out. Wow! I didn't know that there was so much interest out there to learn about the intrincacies of an A&S competition! I had a big group of really enthusiastic people. Mistress Maddalena brought up a couple of points that I intend to incorporate into my handout. Also, strawberrykaren, thanks a million for distributing the Atlantian A&S judging forms and instructions. That was really helpful, and I will probably incorporate them to my handout for next time.

The drive back was very pleasant, except for the thunderstorms we encountered on Rt. 95. Coupled with the high gust-winds, it was enough to make us feel that we were in the middle of a bad horror movie. Luckily, we kept ourselves talking so we didn't have a chance to panic. Needless to say that we were only too happy when we got home.

BTW, reasdream thanks a million for fixing my iTunes. I am a very happy belfebe now.

It was wonderful to meet you finally! (even if it was just waving across a table of happy people) Alric and matthew_g send their regards, but I sincerely hope there is some sort of warning posted before we launch into a Hip-Hop Court as reasdream had been threatening to do!

It was great to meet you too! And hey, I am getting my bling and my posse ready for that Hip-Hop Court. It will be something that no one will forget any time soon . . .

hey, can you email me a copy of your handout? (rosalind@elizabethanmafia.com). And, as promised, we got the shoes (and boots) at www.silvermane.com. Both are listed under men's boots and shoes. (17th century shoe, musketeer boot) We found that the boots tend to run small but I don't think the shoes do. After about 4-5 years are hard wearing we have had to get new soles for Gaston's boots and it's time to resole mine but they resole well at any shoe repair place. The shoes are still going strong though. Let me know if you have any questions. I did replace the lacing that came with the shoes with a cotton twill-tape as I really hated their lacing and it didn't work very well.
