Spent today at a renfaire I'd never been to before and it was pretty damn cool. Fishers Renaissance Festival

It had a lot of period exhibitions and artisans and such, whereas most of the faires I've been to have been MERCHANTS, MERCHANTS, SOME SHOWS, AND OH YEAH MORE MERCHANTS.

Jen and I met our future, also. There was a woman selling ren faire costumes for dolls and she told us all about the rooms she has built for her dolls at home. :) :) :) I have no doubt we will be that crazy. (The crazy is currently in incubation and we are carefully tending it, keeping it warm and safe, so someday it can hatch into full-level crazy.)

Then the faire got too hot and crowded so we left... and walked around a mall in costume for a while. And I thought we were getting strange looks at the faire for carrying the kids around with us, wow. The public is so not ready for us. /o\

I think I have hatching on the brain. :( I wonder why?
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
I'm gonna go have coffee and the rest of my Tim Tams now. :D

ETA: My girlfriend uploaded a pic of me & the kids with a fairy over here.

Why is this the only clip I can find of Patrick from the BMI Awards the other day? FAIL, INTERNET.

Renfaire was lovely as usual. Though the rampant commercialism taking over the Tennessee one makes me make sad faces.
The imaginary kids looked lovely and got many compliments. And we got a picture of them with the queen. ♥

Off to the RenFaire tomorrow. Whee!

ETA: Btw, I'm supposed to be pimping my mom's new site: Faire Hair by L.

Wow, way too many pictures of the back of my head to be living on the intarwebs, kthnx.
Oh, and there should be pics of my imaginary kids up there pretty soon. :D

Umm, hi f-list. The world sort of... ate me recently. I feel the need to assert that I am, in fact, still here and do things other than read porn about pretty, pretty bands. I'm not sure why, but I do.

Me, state of - things having nothing to do with bandom/fandom:

I spent a ridiculous amount of time today working on de-couch-ifying mine & jen's living area. Said couch? Ridiculously large. We nearly broke it/the door getting it into the room originally, so we decided it would be easier to just take it out the back door. Wrong.
Things learned from this?

-Everything is always harder than you think it will be, even if you are a pessimist.
-There is never an allen wrench around when you need one.
-Hammers cannot fix everything.
-Removing a door from its hinges is surprisingly easy, thus proving the exception to the first rule.

Jen's explanation of the de-couch-ifying experience which may cause this to make more sense. Or maybe not.

Moving right along...

Prior to this venture, I spent all day yard-sale-ing. Me & Jen & Zoe left at 7 AM with my 3-year-old nephew in tow. We ditched the kid with his mommy around 11, but didn't actually make it home until 3:30. That is some hard-core shopping, yo.

The sad part about this is that I actually bought practically nothing for myself. I spent a dollar on books. And I bought a purse. ...that's pretty much it.

Oh, and I bought my girlfriend a slightly whorish pink and black plaid schoolgirl skirt. I likes it. And I bought her Hello Kitty socks. And Mickey Mouse socks for my sisters.

Not to say that I didn't spend much money. I bought plenty of stuff, but most of that was picking up stuff my sister sent me to look for, for her upcoming offspring. We also bought the 3-year-old sprog some nifty toys including an assload of He-Man stuff which made his mommy practically explode from joy.
Seriously though? Going through itty bitty onesies and sleepers and stuff is way more fun than it has any right to be. Really.

I am actually getting vaguely excited at the prospect of the baby actually arriving and getting to shove it into teeny tiny onesies with darling blue and green frogs on them. September 1st is too far away I think.

Err, I've mentioned that I'm taking a year off before I go to grad school and I'm spending this time as a baby-sitter for my sister's sprog(s), haven't I? If not, I suppose this information makes this make more sense.

Anyhow, on to the more important children, the imaginary ones. We took several of them to the Renfaire in costume again this year. This is most fun because people who work at renfaires are as crazy as Jen & I, so they see us carrying 18" dolls around in a stroller all dressed up in period garb and go, "Oh, what lovely children! They're so well-behaved!" ♥

Now if the Tennessee Renfaire could just stop getting run into the ground by its management, life would be lovely. I have high hopes for the Kentucky renfaire we're going to in a few weeks, though. I think we're going to try to make the kids some new costumes. Also, by then, maybe I'll be able to afford to buy a couple sets of horns.

If I think of it, I'll post a pic of the kids trying on horns. They ended up spending half the day sitting at the horn-seller's booth being models while their grandma watched them (Have I mentioned lately that I love that my mom is as crazy as I am? Because I really do love that. Also the fact that she is currently dating a guy who sells horns at renfaires is fairly nifty, really.) and I got a couple pictures.

Umm, yeah. I guess that's all I've got, real life wise (is it weird that my imaginary kids count as real life?). Work continues to be long and boring and far away, but I'm surprised at how much it doesn't really bother me to work all day everyday when I have to commute an hour each way. Though that doesn't actually stop me from being terribly glad that tomorrow is Sunday. While I am on the topic, I still can't fucking believe the university is having an orientation on Tuesday. Fucking bastards. I know they planned this just to annoy me. Really.


ETA (despite the fact that I haven't even posted this yet): I forgot how much I like actual, living frogs. I mean, I love anything of, on, or about frogs, but I forget that I actually find the creatures painfully adorable even when they randomly sneak into my house and startle my girlfriend. I just had to catch & shoo outside the darlingest tiny little froggie, less than an inch long. I kept talking to it, basically cooing in much the same way people do with tiny babies. I am a sad, sad person really.

ETA2 (no, I still haven't actually posted yet): I love orange soda. Seriously, LOVE. Sometimes I forget. Then I opened a sunkist, took a sip, and said, "Fuck I forgot how much I love orange soda," rather loudly, confusing the heck out of Jen & Zoe.

I'm going to go away and try not to scare my girlfriend any more with my randomness.

ETA3 (nope, not yet): This is cheating because it is both RL & bandomish, BUT! My Fall Out Boy shirt came in the mail today! And it is so gorgeous! It's this one. Jen got this one and Zoe got this one.
I want more already. And Panic! shirts. And TAI. And perhaps something that just says Fueled By Ramen or Decaydence. And many things I can't afford from Pete's pretty, pretty clothing line. *lusts for fucking expensive hoodies*

On that note, *posts*.
Work is a boring thing, so now seemed like a good time to, umm... explain why I've been largely MIA since school let out.

You see, the Tennessee Renaissance Festival goes on every weekend in May... and my mommy bought me a season pass... so that's pretty much where I've spent most of my free time this month. Sadly, it is now over, but I had a great time and may sleep for about the next month. (Cuz as I've said, having fun is hard work.)

Anyway, so that's that.

I'm listening to Badly Drawn Boy's "One Plus One Is One" album because I bought it Friday at the university bookstore because it was 75% off (Zomg, sale!). I'm digging it, but then again, I really like Badly Drawn Boy so that's a little bit expected.

Well, I guess now I'll go check in on RP-land as my poor characters have been mostly as MIA as I have.

Buh-bie now, f-list.

Me, at the ren faire with the Minstrels of Mayhem (Ahem!)
... the light's a bit wonky, I'll try to find a better pic of my costume later when mom gets home.
Home from Ren Faire. Very Sleepy. Had a good time. Mommy bought me uber-pretty, overly-expensive faire costume. ^.^ Am very pleased. Bought the only Minstrels of Mayhem cd I did not yet own.
A guy proposed to his girlfriend during the final pub sing... she looked like she was going to faint from happiness. Can people actually faint from sheer joy? It was very cute.
Will likely see some of you people tomorrow when I come to BG... depends on how long it takes me to crawl out of bed in the morning...
ETA: I guess I *could* take the costume *off* now. O.o;; I must make a very amusing sight sitting at my computer drinking my Pepsi in full faire regalia. o.O;
Also, mom took pics of me in it and I'll try and see if I can put them up tomorrow.
And also, do you have any idea how complicated it is to go to the bathroom when you're wearing three layers of skirts and have sleeves that hang down to your knees? o.O;;

Monday - Tennessee Ren Fest
Tuesday - Driving to BG to pick up textbook for my summer course, take bag back to Laura, pick up puppy from Michael's... probably more errands that I'm forgetting
Wednesday - Summer course begins ~i should probably have some sort of emotion about this, but it doesn't seem worth it~ It's weird actually, I've never done any sort of school-type thing during the summer before. o.O;

Plans for the weekend? *shrug*

Right now, I'm watching The Fifth Element, and this pleases me greatly. I haven't seen it in a while. I've been wanting to watch it for several months but my household seems to have misplaced our copy of the dvd. I'm considering purchasing the ultimate edition dvd because I really love this movie. It also kinda makes me want to dye my hair orange again. Orange is a good color. Right now it's faded to a sort of strawberry blonde-ish tone. I was gonna go a nice normal brown as my next choice, but now I think I want to go orange for a bit longer. *cuddles hair dye*

Work sucks. Sucks, sucks, sucks. And I still have to stay here for another hour and a half. Save me!
At some point tonight, my dad is going to randomly show up, possibly in Bowling Green or possibly at home, possibly after my mom has already come to help me move my shit. *sigh* Silly daddy. I told him we're going to be going to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival tomorrow and said he should come with us. His response? "Well, is you mom going to be there?" Well, *duh*! How the hell else would we be getting there? So he may or may not go with us to the renfest. I think he's going to hang out with Zoe on Sunday while I'm gone to see Chicago at TPAC with mom for Mother's Day. I need to remember to give her the card I bought for her, too. I was going to remind myself that I need to order something for her birthday, but then I realized I already have. But, shit!, I think I put the wrong mailing addy!!! Curse!
Well, that killed about ten minutes.
I have approximately 8 billion concerts I want to go to this summer, including but not limited to: Green Day, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, James Taylor, Alanis Morissette, possibly Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, John Melloncamp, maybe Dave Matthews Band, and maybe Avril Lavigne. Apparently Garbage is playing at the Ryman Auditorium tonight. o.O;;; Too bad my dance card this weekend is *full*. Between moving, renfest, Chicago and juggling my parents, I don't know when I'll find time to catch up on my sleep. Which I really need to do. Since I didn't get any last night. Like, any at all. I sat up at my computer till 4, took a shower, tried to sleep for about three hours, glancing up at the clock every five minutes or so, then finally gave up and just started getting dressed at like 7 am.
I may have slightly bombed my Linguistic Anthropology final. I hope I didn't get a B in the class, it was *fun* and *easy*! I should not get a B! But I have a sneaking suspicion that I will. Not that I need to worry about it now because he won't put the grades up until like the very last second. I'll be waiting for days for him and Taylor. *sigh* Damn lazy teachers encroaching on my procrastination territory!
*sigh* I guess I should go check with Amazon and see if I put the wrong mailing address on that order. Hopefully it isn't too late to fix it. It wouldn't be a problem except that it was an Amazon Marketplace seller instead of Amazon itself which just makes the whole world more difficult. *iz dun 4 now*
