What? Wait! It wasn’t me, I swear!! It could have been anybody!!
Unless, of course, you are talking about losers who don’t update their blog, in which case yeah, ya caught me. My apologies.
So, on to what I have been doing lately: short amounts of free time have been gobbled up by Fantastic Contraption. Gee, a toy where I can build things that do stuff? Hell yeah I’m playing it!
This past weekend I did something I haven’t done in a couple of years: I went to an actual SCA event, instead of an un-sanctioned one. Acorn War was down at Willamette Mission State Park, and for once we got a nice spot in the shade. Just three of us this event – Illyana, J and myself. Tolerant wasn’t feeling well for a couple of days prior, and everyone else had prior commitments to deal with.
The event was pretty small, but the weather was gorgeous – low to mid-80′s during the day, and just cold enough at night to make you appreciate the heavy blanket. Blessing of all blessings in a small site, the drummers were actually GOOD so I wasn’t kept up all night by idiots who can’t carry a beat. (I have no problem sleeping while good drummers play.)
There were a couple of good parties on Saturday night, but once again I wasn’t really comfortable barging into someone else’s encampment and they weren’t exactly running out the welcome wagon, so I tripped along tent-ward and just enjoyed the general ambiance. All in all, a nice relaxing weekend.
