La di da, this post is not happening . . .  
I am not looking at the Trés Riches Heures . . . especially not June and July and September. I am not saying, "Oh, the women in June are dressed perfectly for summer. All they need are straw hats." I am not thinking about starting the research for an early 16th-century milkmaid's outfit again. I am not thinking about personas and choosing a name. I am not thinking about what games Jeff and Char's boys would like to play or what books they'd like read to them.

This is not happening. This post was never written.

This IS happening: My books came today! I have "The Ties that Bound" by Barbara Hanawalt, "Persuasion" by Jane Austen, and "The Ladies of Grace Adieu" by Susanna Clarke, which is absolutely beautiful. The cover is lovely and very much in the tradition of 19th-century books, with flowers stamped and painted on the hardcover. And they smell like new books! Mmm, delicious.

Why did nothing happen?

Because I don't want to get myself all psyched up for something and then discover that I can't go.

Warriors and Warlords is always an option. Three night long SCA event here in Wisconsin over the summer up in Boscobel.

That's true. And Boscobel is way close to where I live.

So if I carefully drop a link to a bunch of photos to that place that you don't want to think about that at all, you won't look, right? ;-D

Of course not. Because this post never happened.

I know some of those people :)

Good thing that didn't happen.

I just finished watching Persuasion. Now I want to go back and re-read it.

Which version did you watch? The one with Amanda Root? That one is my favorite.
[identity profile] gardentraveler.livejournal.com on January 9th, 2009 03:39 am (UTC)
That very one. It's good, isn't it? It was on sale at Barnes & Noble and I had a gift card. I took that to be a sign.

I don't see anything. In fact, I think I'm still asleep.

Since I don't see anything, I'm going to mention that half of our camp is originally from Wisconsin, and we know a lot of people coming from that way that might be able to pick up a rider.

I've been getting bored with "Runs with Scissors". I might just use "Stradivarius of subtlety". It makes me laugh and laugh and laugh...

You are the Stradivarius of subtlety! I think I'm going to have to revise my budget. If I can make this work by saving $300 vs. $500 dollars, that would be much easier.

But this post never happened, so I don't know what I'm talking about.
