Aside from getting Drunkity Drunk Drunk Drunk with snipeyhead at Tux I had my best faire day this year at MDRF yesterday. I arrived on my own schedule and stayed relatively free of drama and people that feel the need to add their two cents where they have no business to do so. I saw a couple of shows, including a rather intimate performance by In Our Cups that truly tickeled my funny bone. I spent time with several good friends, and basked in the warm compliments of people I genuinely like and respect. I received a perfect purple rose that smelled heavenly from a dear friend. In the afternoon hours I found the perfect way for *me* to "work" faire. Actually, the perfect way for me to enjoy faire while helping out friends. I sat on the bar at the Dragon Inn and directed traffic to make the bar lines move quicker. It enabled me to vent on people that didn't tip, have sarcastic banter with patrons waiting in line, chat with various friends that happened by, AND even afforded me the time to once again be amazed by the magical talent of Brian/Desmond/Diego. Hiz Royal Hiney even stopped by for a bit. I had a blast. I even got the best little giftie ... a purple sparkly shoe ornament adorned with purple feathers and a rose.
At 5:30 I left my post and headed to The White Hart, escorted by BOTH Rackham brothers. It's good to be me. I was met at the pub by good friends and had a delightful session of catch up before the show started. It took three weekends, but he finally managed to do it ... the tear ducts broke. That one came out of left field and took my breath away. Damn you, Jack Rackham!! Just kidding, you know I love you.
After gate I had dinner with a friend before heading home to bed.
Today I am sore and tired, but in a much better place than I was last Monday. Tonight I will be going to be VERY early ... that is if Lars, snipeyhead, and Zoey don't show up this evening.

I was just wondering where they were along their cross-country trip. You really think they might make your place by tonight? I thought Snipe planned to take her time this time across and not get to this coast until middle of next week at the earliest...
She starts work next Monday and wanted to be in New York by this Friday.

Ah ok. I was thinking she said something about making it back to NYRF by the 15th.
Very cool. Give them hugs when you see them. :)
i thought your ideal job was counting the money from the tip jar with your amazingly psychic ... bodyparts. *lol*
t'was good to see you yesterday.
Let me know if anyone wants to do dinner this week, hm?
So glad to see you had a great weekend!

I'm so happy you had a Good Faire Day. Reminds me of a nursery rhyme: when its Good its Very, Very Good but when its Bad its Horrid.
And please give That Bitch a hug from me and 'Bow when you see her.
Was very fun to see you and sing to you!
