Fast Times in Belfast

I'm sorry about the lack of posting, really, I am; but things have been exhausting here, further reminding me everyday of why I hate the damn summer courses so much.

Not much is happening here anyway. It's that time of year again where I start getting ready for the Maryland Renaissance Festival. That's right, I go to the Renfest. Not only that, I go repeatedly. I have a season pass, even. And if that weren't enough, I dress up! That's right, every weekend during fair season, I put on my corset and dress, drive an hour to Crownsville, and eat food on a stick.
And it's fine, you know why?

Because we're all allowed one quirk.

And of course, the gratuitous picture, me on the right, my darling friend Talia on the left-


On a related note, if anyone's interested in hitting the RenFest and wants company, drop me a line.

Actually, I was planning on posting about the end of the IRA's military campaign. But after that rant on the Renfest, I dunno, it seems sorta out of place. So I'll just sum up. The IRA said "Fine, we'll stop with the warfare. We'll use politics instead. That's way scarier."
Maybe certain places need to take example, hm?

Haven't been to a renaissance fair (or is that faire) since I was teaching in Delaware and my school district put one on. Low key in comparison to yours, no doubt.

I have some good friends who have since moved away but were devoted RenFest people. The guy even had a chain mail set of armor.

Have a good time with your corsets and bodices and heraldry and cuckoldry and I'm sure lots of pewter things.
