Went to NYRF at last. In a nutshell:

First time in ten years (yes, I’m old; let us move on) as a patron.

It was delightful to see shows (holy CROW, the Mud Show fully rocks! likewise Wyrd Sisters (POTC2 parody=OMGYAYSQUEE!!) and the Wenches and the Village Idiots and SPLAT!) and have the chance to shop (okay, not so much with that, but I will next time, I promise! avhi, I desperately desire a drop spindle (and the free lesson *kthxsplz* and yummy, YUMMY yarn!!! (and your shop is just beautiful and fully unique; I suspect you’ll kick some serious ass this summer)). I got three roses: one from my own darling dearest barleymash, one from the wonderful wench18 (SEKRIT MESSAGE: you are astoundingly adorable. Just sayin’) and one from my friend and my partner (even though I’m not jousting), Gisbourne. The receipt of each made me cry. Kelly=big frakkin' SAP.

Yes, I had my moments. I got a bit weepy when I hugged certain people. The second joust was hard. (thank you muchly to aranturas and kelleymck, in particular, for accepting that I’m just a bit of an eejit).

So many folks came up to me with hugs and kisses. So many said they’d noticed Don and I weren’t there. Now, I know no one is irreplaceable. Still, it is awfully nice to know that there are folks that miss us.
I feel: pensivepensive

I'm so sad that now that I'm moving to NY (ON THURSDAY!!!! IN DORM SATURDAY!!!! EEEE!!!) you won't be in the Ren Faire... but maybe next year (dunno if I'll have time at the beginning of this year) you'd do the honor of going with me and giving me the best tour I could have? I still wear the earrings you gave me a few years ago all the time-- remember, the beautiful little celtic knot half moons?

Of course I'll go with you! This year, if you want. And we will fully have to go out for dinner in the city. *hugsquish*

Ohhh, that'd be wonderful! How much does it cost to get into the faire, again? I don't remember (and now I'm a budgeting college student!!).

Oh, pish. As if I wouldn't have a comp for you.

You are very, very much missed! But it was lovely to see you all again!

Chalk it up to my youth and inexperience, but I disagree with you. Some people are irreplaceable, Kelly. You'll always be Maid Marian to me (ready yourself for a story in the dorky, but true genre).
Last year, I wrote a short story for a Women's Studies class about Maid Marian. My professor liked it and submitted it to a kind of women's studies trade journal where it eventually got published and became my first paying piece.
When I wrote it, I had your Marian in mind- the awesome, kickass, smart and beautiful Marian who meant so much to me in my teen years.
So nyah! You can be self deprecating about any other topic, but you don't get to weasel out of accolades for Marian around me, sister.

I have to agree with that...when I read a Robin Hood story, I 'hear' all of Maid Marion's lines in Kelly's voice. :-)

I don't even know what to say. Just know that I am going to hug you so very hard the next time I see you.

You are both missed very much, and it was very nice to see you. Forget not that faire is also family. ; )
