Toasty

I'm back, but I'm fried.  Really, really, fried.  We crammed about three month's worth of house and landscaping into one week, and had Mousehole (LH event) at the end.  I need another week off.

It went well, but I was reminded again why I will never, ever autocrat an SCA event.

I need to work.  More about the event (and pictures) tomorrow.

I enjoyed myself, wet and blind, it was still great fun.

The house is coming so far along, colour me green with envy.

Hopefully Carrie will not kill me next time we meet, for not making sure you didn't get hurt.

I'm with you about never autocratting again. I got fed up with the amount of people who feel entitled to break any rules they feel are inconvenient for them, and then threaten the autocrat when those rules are enforced.

I agree with corbaegirl. Everyone expects you to bend to their demands.

I just was co-autocrat this past weekend. I do think it takes underpants of asbestos to do it. Luckily, my group and kingdom is generally pretty good, but if you're easily angered or have any sense of taking things personally at all, that's not the job for you.

Also, threatening the autocrat doesn't work with me. I probably know the rules and their interpretation better than the buttheads, but can tactfully tell them they're full of it. And I'm not afraid to escalate to the correct authority when provoked.

I'm pretty flame-proof and have very thick skin; when I end up with people threatening me with physical harm, I think it's time for me to go do something else.

I am *so* sorry I missed it, but I really wasn't fit company. Glad folks had a good time.
