Note to self [May. 8th, 2007|11:21 am]

Dear Self,


Moving a husband out, a boyfriend in, engaging in a career change, and undergoing major house repairs, performing in all sorts of events, and running a major one all at the same time...

...is too much, even for you.

For all of my friends who wonder where the hell I've gone and why no one hears from me anymore...assuming I make it to opening and beyond...I will be back in late June when Virginia Faire is over.

And when you do see me, remind me that normal people feel perfectly comfortable saying "oh, no, it sounds like fun, but really, I can't."

Cliff's Notes version: Sorry, but I still hate fairies. Spoutwood was lovely, fabulous exposure for the dogs and the people there were great, albeit a little disorganized for having done this event for 16 years, and a little too earnest for a curmudgeonly cynic like me. (But you'll be proud; although it is killing me to not volunteer to solve their traffic flow and control issues, I'm going to resist and just make a note to myself to show up at 6am next year and plan to never leave site for the entire event.

Re: Friends don't let friends...

Dude, if I could do that, would I be boring Diego after every faire? (Like he doesn't do the same bits at every show...ducking and running)

Re: Friends don't let friends...

It's called "showbusiness."

And as they say, you can run ... but you'll only die tired.

I believe you make a variation of this post before and after every faire you do.

Just sayin'...

We both need to seek therapy for the same issues but alas, that would require an "appointment" for said therapy and therefore, wouldn't fit into our schedules... :-)

Sorry I missed this weekend...

I think traffic has always been an issue though last year I was able to park up front due to walking with a cane and volunteering. That was schweet. Unfortunately, I missed it this year.

Sorry I missed it too. . .like you, too much stuff going on. Did the born-again Christians show up and picket like they did last year.



Born-Again Christians is that like Re-Fried Beans? I'll never understand either one I guess.

Well, I know, I'm pretty sure I was born properly the first time. I can't imagine needing to go through that again. But then again, I choosing to become a better person over time and practice. You could dunk me in some water, but that never seems to do anything but get me drenched.

No picketing, thankfully.
