Tuesday, Tuesday


Hey everyone, I'm back!

I see a little upward blip in readership, so welcome new readers, glad you're here, and I swear I don't normally leave the blog idle for a week, but I was out of town.

I had a lovely week at the farm - despite a three-day migraine and intermittent rain, the event went very well, even though I missed the last three hours due to blinding head-type painfulness.  Thankfully, I have a variety of yummy pharmaceuticals at my disposal, so I chose to pass out for the evening.  Apparently, without me, people don't sing, so I'll have to keep that in mind for next time, and make a Laura doll with a tape recording of me singing if I have to bow out early.

I blame the weather - which didn't ruin the event, but was... changeable.  Whenever it changes that hard, I get a migraine (sinus meds do fuck-all, and pain meds do, but only up to a point).  However, the intermittent rain showers were punctuated by sun, the temperature was mild, and fun was had in the woods with the awesome new air-soft propelled matchlock pistols created by Master Gamble. 

Seriously, those things were cool.

The week itself was mostly beautiful weather - we got things ready, had a flat tire at one point, had the plumber and the electrician come by at different points, and as a result, we spent a nice couple of hours hanging out with theblueleader (the flat happened in her driveway, which was much, much better than it happening on the side of the road - the tires were dry-rotted, so we replaced the front ones), we have a new tap on the kitchen sink that works a lot better than the previous one, and we have eave lights in the courtyard and most of the electricity hooked up in the garage.

I neglected to take photos on the day of the event, but I took lots of photos of my dollhouse, which Bob helped me put on a board, so the two parts stay together.  Unfortunately, you'll have to wait for those, as Bob has the camera, and he went down to NC to visit his Dad for a couple of days after the event, and I came back up alone.  He's coming back tonight (yay, because I miss him, and after 15 years together, I sleep very badly when he's not there), so I'll probably post pics tomorrow.

So, that's about it, without going into excruciatingly boring detail - it was a good time, despite minor setbacks, and I loved spending a whole week at the farm, but it's very hard getting back into the swing of work.

Bob leaves you with a last thought:  In the commercials for the "Most Interesting Man In The World[TM] ", he says "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis".  Doesn't that sound like a really lukewarm endorsement?  "I don't often drink beer, but when I choose to do so, I sometimes choose a particular brand".

The MIMITW has too many things going on to waste time trying to get a buzz off beer.  My guess is he sticks to grain alcohol.

I adore those commercials. They completely crack me up.

Have you tried taking feverfew for the migraines? A few members of my family have tried it (including myself) and it really does wonders.

Sorry you were feeling poorly, but the event rocked and everyone had a very fine time. Thanks again for your excellent hospitality!

I'm really sorry you missed what I can only describe as Fin's imitation of a zombie imitating Jimmy singing "Three Blind Mice."

I think the MIMITW commercial is trying a "less is more" approach to promotion ("Don't oversell it").

...without going into excruciatingly boring detail...

I live for this sort of detail, so I know you wouldn't be boring me. *grin* If you happen to run across event shots that are OK to share, I would love to see the dress-up fun (as well as the dollhouse).

Hope the head is better and that work is over quickly!

Re: I haz pictures
Although I know you posted those for Attack_Laurel I still feel I should say, "Thankees!"

Now - for more information on those 'awesome new air-soft propelled matchlock pistols'...

Welcome home, sorry about the migraine. Those matchlocks sound very cool.


"(yay, because I miss him, and after 15 years together, I sleep very badly when he's not there)" - Oh good, then I really don't feel weird expressing that with a 10 year relationship with my dear husband, I don't sleep well without him, even when we're in the house together (as in if I go to bed before him, I sleep lightly). I only sleep well if I'm sick, for some definition therein of 'well'.

I agree that the MIMITW likely drinks grain alcohol. Or snooty drinks.

I have to say, in 15 years the standard of equipment (notably the tentage) has really improved ... well, it looks cleaner anyway.
