Well, this is a bit unfair.  
We're headed down to Maryland on the morrow. It's Pirate Invasion weekend at MDRF, and the Crimson Pirates will be performing. That's not the unfair part; quite the contrary. We'll get to see all manner of lovely folk. Also, pork chop on a stick. And oyster shooters.

The unfairness comes from having to drive down through a nor'easter AND likely having to spend the first performance day cold and wet. For bonus cranky-making, I'm coming down with a cold, but fierce. I've been chugging OJ and taking vitamins (when I remember). I skipped out on weight training. Snuggled HT extra hard. Nothing seems to be working.

Then there's my impending period, which is due any time within the next two days. The only thing more annoying than having to tend to one's particular womanly needs in a port-o-san while in armor/chain mail is having to do so in layers of costume and tights, all of which are likely to be sodden, clingy and heavy with rain.

bah.

*hugs*

Costumes/shows + one's period = suckful.

Of course, my body does this stupid thing where my vibrato is wide and uncontrollable and singing is an extreme effort the day or two before my period actually starts. You would not believe the annoyance. May this never happen to you.

I hope the rains are less down in MD and at least you would have less sogginess to deal with

I'll be there for moral support at the very least.

Oh, I am SO feeling your misery right now. The weekend ahead of me performing at CTRF is going to be just as sucky. :( I will send you some soggy love from my end of the storm, so that we may at least feel a connection whilst we swim through our sets!

I hope you muddled through without too much difficulty. We got soaked through on Saturday (many times over) and Sunday was only marginally less soggy.

Ugh. You make me very glad that my rehearsals are inside this weekend. Also, only 2 blocks from the bus station.

On the other hand, the MDRF has those fabulous apple dumplings a la mode.

In honour of the anniversaries of your loverly marriage and my dubious birth, I hereby decree that none of your calories count this weekend. And you may decide who gets them, so long as it isn't me.
Hug.

Hey alpha uterus, you just made my reproductive system stand at attention and say, "Ma'm! Yes, Ma'm!"

I hear what you are saying. The shiny red hate monkey will fall out of the tree into the cottin coffin while I'm in Disney.

lucky for me, I won't have it on vacation, so I am fully expecting to get sick.

YEA!!!

Our Pirate Adventure is the first weekend in November. :) Wanna come to Texas? :D
Kel: OMG!Ten/Fiveladyjoust on September 29th, 2008 11:05 pm (UTC)
uh, YES!!!!! Honestly. How awesome would that be?

We've never done TRF. I wonder if they'd ever pay us to come down. I should have my hubby send a press kit.

p.s. my icon reminded me to ask you: did you see Time Crash?
Kat: doctor who cheeky roseevegryffindor on September 30th, 2008 05:59 pm (UTC)
You should totally send a press kit down! And I'll pimp you out to Boss Man Jeff! :D :D

And I DID see Time Crash and I LOVED IT! I love both of the Children in Need specials like whoa. ^_____^

I've been trying to go to the MDRF for the last few weekends, maybe this weekend I actually will! I love it. :)

Now that I'm home and - finally - warm and dry, I hope for your sake you didn't go. It was mucky and soggy and all kinds of uncomfortable. Still a heap of fun, but just messy and wet.
