Substitutions




 

All hail our avian overlords


Give honor to Gander the First, and his feathered queen, Goosehilda.
The downside to the new job is these big bastards wandering around between building. They just don't give a shit about humans. They know that they don't taste nice and that the cops will fine you if you run one of them over. They just stand there, while you walk by, and hiss at you. As if they are saying, "Just keep on stepping, pinky." Today, I had to yell at one, who was blocking the path, "Hey! I'm an apex predator and you are 30 pounds of nasty meat and fat."

Another Ice Dragon in the grave.


Ug. A long day of Ice Dragon followed by getting up early to get new tires for my car, this morning. I call it event hangover. Still, the event was nice. Some friends didn't show up due to life being more important (curse you, life!). Two good friends received writs. I ran two successful rapier tourneys, including a melee/trivia tourney that I plan on doing, again, at Summer's End. And, I managed to sneak in a scroll, into our Baronial court, so fiendish and clever that Zosia, our herald, will hate me, and fish, for years to come. I was laughing so hard 'cause she was trying to rush through it like she was removing a band-aid. Totally worth it.

New Job


How much walking have I been doing at the new job? So much walking that I broke a shoe, today.

Still less stress than the old job.

New job


Yesterday, I started onboarding at the new job site. Now I just have to wait until the Powers That Be hire my replacement so that I can move on to a less stressful job.

New safety sign


The new safety sign, down the hall from my current office, looks like Doc Ock.

Medieval hoods


This is one of the best videos I've seen explaining how to turn a hood and mantel into a hat. I just wear them as a hood, I've never tried to convert mine into fancy-schmancy hats.

New Indian restaurant


I drove past a new Indian restaurant, today. I'm going to have to try it.

This made me laugh

Burnt wine


This is one of my favorite channels. The recipe is out of period but I'm sure that I can find one that is similar within the SCA time period. This is really a cooked, spiced wine.

Getting old


You know you are getting old when the hardest part when changing the oil on your car is when you have to bend over and pour the old oil from the pan into the empty container.
