Renaissance  
We went to the renaissance faire today. Although I love medieval fantasy, I am still uncomfortable at faires. There’s all these people... And store vendors are trying to talk to you and get you to come check out their wares. And other wandering people might just come up to you at random. I would like it more if I could just wander and look at items on my own, and not feel so pressured with all these people around. “Is she going to buy something!?” It makes me not want to glance over at items in stores, because then someone will notice and say, “Hey, come here and have a closer look!” Even if they call me Fair Maiden, it’s still intimidating. “Oh.. no thanks. I think I’ll just wander on and stare at the ground.” Bah, even pleasantries are hard for me. But, I did find a couple things to get. A braided leather bracelet and a celtic trinity pendant. I liked alot of the pendants there actually. They each had different meanings. See, I find all this stuff I like, but I don’t have the money to spend on it, especially when alot of it wouldn’t be put to much practical use, or would only sit there and look pretty. The curse of an aesthete, I suppose? *snicker*

But, seeing all these people in renaissance garb got me thinking about roleplaying again. It might be neat to try larp (live-action roleplaying), although all the rules, etc. listed on one site I looked at awhile back seemed rather complicated and tiresome. Plus, I haven’t the time for it at the moment. Too many other projects still on my list of things to do. But, better yet, it would be nice to own a huge ranch somewhere with hills and mountains and forests and creeks, and dress up as elves and faeries, and roleplay and ride horses and run and explore and fight creatures and cast spells and find strange new things... Can’t I just do that for a living? I suppose acting is the next best thing, hm?

I’ve more to update on, but that will have to wait til later.

You have quite the taste in jewelery, Fair Maiden.

I like Renaissance festivals. They do have the coolest little things you can get. I've only been to 2 or 3, and didn't really have the problem of annoying salespeople. ;)

The costumes are quite lovely, though. And where else can you get swords?
