Final thoughts on mountain_hiker' party, Saturday at renfest, and cracking down on wedding prep.

There was more to blog about my exciting Friday night, but it fell out of my head in the meanwhile. It was fun to meet kitsunekaboom, wanderingrogue and zyrc mckavian, though I'm glad I didn't try an alien secretion. (Most Google results give the primary ingredients as Midori, coconut rum, vodka and pineapple juice. I do not like melon.)

With a little navigational help from mountain_hiker, Karak and I picked up Vogon's nerdsprout and had lots of fun at the Colorado Renaissance Festival on Saturday. I didn't go garbed since the dress my sister loaned me was way too hot to wear all day. (No surprise, since it was a Halloween costume. Next time I _will_ remember to pack my summer-weight dress.) I took around 300 photos, currently sorting down for quality and the best few dozen will go in a Gallery album later this week. Highlights include two jousting matches, a Puke and Snot show with a front row full of little kids, and photos of us around the faire.

Heading into the last week before the wedding, I am cracking down on the sewing and other projects that need to be done in time. They are still all Secret so there won't be any photos until afterward, but suffice it to say I bought a leather thimble to give my right index finger a break and tomorrow I'll be laying paver stones.

Maybe you mean mckavian?

Thank you! My brain was not firing on all pistons with people's names and I remembered you mentioning zyrc but couldn't remember if you introduced us.

On the other hand, I don't think I could forget wanderingrogue if I tried. She's awesome.

I remember being a little kid and watching Puke and Snot with my father. It was always with him since my mother didn't care for it. I think I've got a few mental soundbites of Puke saying something about asking your parents if you didn't get it. I'm just surprised they flock to the front now. hee.

BTW, I'm still in Evergreen till at least Mid-August and most likely, with the way things are going, it's going to be pushed up to... mid-September.

Good luck with the wedding.

I'm talking about really little kids -- there was a little girl that couldn't be more than two that started screaming mid-show until the adults with her put her in her stroller and left. I took Laurel to the festival when she was one, but I didn't take her to any of the shows aside from a peek at one of the jousting matches.

I'm in Evergreen until this weekend; I'm busy Friday night and Saturday (sister's wedding) but I'm available if you want to meet up before then. Both the house number and my cell phone numbers work. (:

You're terribly interesting. May I add you to my list?
Aug. 4th, 2004 06:04 pm (UTC)
If you want to. I'll add you back, though my friends-only posts don't contain the sort of photos I post in the community we both belong to -- they're mostly about things in my day-to-day life I don't feel like airing to the general public.

Pfft. Bodies are bodies. And while it's nice that you're blessed with a rather lovely example of one, it's your brain I'm interested in. I like reading the day-to-day stories of interesting people.
