You are one fine story-teller. Always bring a grin to my face. :)

Good for you!
Put your feet up and stay cool.

Sounds like a fun weekend!

Not to get negative or nuthin', but I just do not care for those Rennaisance fairs. I can see going if the kidlets have a good time.

What bothers me is the people who get "into character" and try to act all medieval. It makes me want to whop one of those turkey drumsticks upside their head. Prithee, get outeth my face!

Hmmm, this could be developed into a Monty Python sketch ...

[Hope you get to feeling better. Maybe some nice person could make fresh-squeezed lemonade for you.]

Marc, I think the whole Medieval/Renaissance dress-up thing is weird for grown-ups (and as an aside, I've often wondered why it doesn't get called a Medieval Faire, because they leave the Renaissance out of it entirely). Also, there was a booth selling devil-type horns that were being worn around by a large number of the costumed people, leading one to wonder how they would have felt being burned as heretics. However, it really was fun and my kids really enjoyed it and were already talking about wanting to go again next year. On top of that, one of my earliest memories is of going to a similar festival out in California when I was about 4. So it must be something of which pleasurable memories are made.

Everyone knows that modern assassins don't throw knives. So, I think Justin should keep the dream alive!

Jordana, you crack me up.

I saw an episode of Wife Swap where the people were all into that stuff.
It was weird.

If I really did that show I can only imagine what I would get stuck with.

How fun! I've never gone before and my oldest girl was just mentioning last week that she wanted to go...then we forgot (and I was sick). Maybe next year!
