someday I'll get the hang of this

First thing you should know: this blog follows no rhyme nor reason. Some of the madness includes things from books I read and tv shows or movies I watch. Those currently include books by Tamora Pierce, George RR Martin, and many of the BBC's television shows. Sometimes I interrupt the fan-posts with real life things that are important.

I did the thing I shouldn’t do. I commented on a thing on facebook when I didn’t 100% agree. Why? Why did I do this thing?

First dream that features my Shakespeare troupe makes it official that they are people of some import to me.

Super dramatic lighting on my new red bodice to prove that it is not too Christmas-y when paired with my green bag.

RENFEST UPDATE BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS AMAZING

Not only do I get to be a Shakespearean actor all weekend long, but I also get to be my amazing self by night.

By day, I get to practice swordfighting with an ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL. Just because the ring is up and we need to populate it. (But you WILL NOT hear me complaining about GETTING TO LEARN TO USE A SWORD.)

I get to talk to patrons in character. Which may not be as flashy as sword fighting, but these things have happened:

  • a child assured me I would not be hurt by plastic
  • a different child (dressed as a tree) gave ME A LEAF FROM HIS COSTUME
  • we had three men compete as Romeo given only one line to one of our actors up on a balcony
  • I chatted with a family about what I do and when I mentioned that our troupe did one love scene, they asked who got to do it. I told them I did, and played up the “oh my gosh I’m so giddy about this and Shakespeare and look it’s with him over there” and they definitely made sounds of appreciation/approval. (so go me for objectifying my castmate)
  • I get to banter with other cast members (from the sheriff to the pickle sellers)
  • I GET TO PERFORM FREAKING SHAKESPEARE
  • ALSO I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND THE PART ABOUT SWORDS BECAUSE I GOT TO DO DRILLS AND I’M ACTUALLY LEARNING THINGS IT’S SO COOL

By night, I get to hang out and have drinks with the cast. I was informed that were a person not in a relationship, I would be her ideal woman. I was bought a beer (and later good-heartedly poked fun at because I couldn’t remember the name of the guy who bought it). Got to hang out with druids and fairies, sheriffs and scotsmen. And all-around was made to feel very good about myself.

New costume pieces! Yay!

  • Romeo: no mercutio
  • Mercutio: yes mercutio

The first weekend of fest starts tomorrow! Ahh!

And since the theme is Irish something or other, I’m wearing a scarf of Buchanan plaid as an extra belt.

If anyone asks me about it, I’m going to tell them about James Buchanan. A young gentleman I once met while our troupe was on tour.

Describe feeling dizzy to a three-year-old.

Weirdly enough, in my experience, it’s not any easier describing feeling dizzy to a doctor. -___-

I believe it. It’s such a strange thing. Especially when it isn’t you who is dizzy. I used the word swishy at one point.
