2. Delivering me their tasty goodness!
I definitely gave a $10 tip to my driver and his 4WD. Praise him.
Life after Faire has been interesting. At first I was like, I don't know what to do with myself over the weekends, but then the soft semblance of a social life emerged from said Faire, and I've been hanging with some of the best. Faire has just truly enriched my life in so many ways . . . I'm so glad I put myself out on a limb and got back into doing what I love.
As an extension of said involvement, I am now part of a group of players who are putting on That Scottish Play for the spring. I didn't express interest well enough in time, I think, to be cast, but I will be stage managing, which is different but still engaging and challenging. And really, if not for the challenge, what for? But it's a group of people brought together by Faire and an independent act of sorts that came up with the idea, and it's been around for about 10 years. A small group, with any profit feeding back into the group. It should be fun. The read through was hilarious. Keeping all these dominant, extroverted personalities in check and focused for rehearsal should be interesting.
In other news, it is almost the holidays, and I can, for the first time since my leaving the caretaking of fuzzy, homeless, friends, travel to my extended family and true "home" for Christmas. It really isn't Christmas if not at Gramma's. I spent every childhood Christmas there, big get-togethers; and although the people and format have changed a bit over my years, it is still the very soul of Christmas. I'm so excited to be able to spend the time there. I'm a bit worried considering the recent weather and said travel, as it is around 800 miles, but I'll get there.
And that is all for now, I suppose. With infrequent updates comes infrequent readership, but I know those that truly matter will be delighted.
