random random random, Rawhide!  
I think that, sometimes, I forget what it is that I do. Today, I noticed that my lower back was sore. It was an external soreness; bruising, to be exact. I figured it must be as a result of this weekend's activities. Had I leaned against something knobbly? Sat wrong during the car ride to or from Wildwood? Perhaps it was my bodice, laced snug a good month earlier than I am accustomed.

Then I recalled that I did, in fact, joust this weekend. And that at the end of the second joust, I get unhorsed by having a CB cracked across - say it with me, kids! - my lower back!

I am such an imbecile.

To offset my idiocy, I shall distract you with cuteness: prior to the second joust on Saturday, I was standing by my horse. He licked my hand a few times (as he is wont to do). He rubbed his head against my butt (ditto). Then, he took my chain mail skirt in his teeth. He sucked at it a little, nibbled it. Then just stood there with it in his mouth. At last, he let it go, sighed, and shook his head, ears a-flopping.

On an entirely non-Faire related note, I feel it necessary to once again cry my adoration for Jon Stewart. Oh, yes indeedy.

Though it embarrasses me to say it, every time I saw that second joust full out, I had a visceral reaction when Justin broke that cb across your back. My eyes would well up, and I was filled to the brim with the thought, "He's cheating!"

Yes... I'm five years old.
