Kingdom dance and a wedding

A grumpy Andy.


Capricia, Andy and me for Petit Riens.





On Saturday, Bryn-Gwlad hosted the Kingdom Dance and Music Symposium. I taught 3 classes, and ran the ball. The attendence was about 70 people... not very well supported locally, but we had folks from out of town. I not-so-subtly implied that Andy should show up... and he actually did. He met my dance friends, and then I made him wear a tunic for the ball. He got grumpy over this because he wasn't as nicely dressed as the folks wearing renaissance clothing. And he actually made snide remarks about seeing a zipper on a costume. His first event!! Already acting like a laurel.

He danced well. He didn't take a single class but I got him to fake all the easy stuff, like Pease Bransle, Petit Riens and Rufty Tufty. And he actually has a good sense of rhythym. I was impressed. He could be a really good dancer if he actually wanted to be. Andy left early while I finished running the ball, went out for gelatos, and was too pooped to go to another party that Andy's roommate was running.

On Sunday, Andy took me to a wedding of his Shakespeare at Winedale friends. It was a Jewish wedding. It's kinda interesting being a date to a wedding. Hi! I'm just arm candy! But his friends were nice and took effort to draw me in. Yay!

Next weekend, I'm off for my 5th year college reunion.

Lessa had mentioned that Andy was there. I'm impressed that you got him to go. Hopefully he had a great time. I'm sure you were the envy of all the single women there.

Ooh, pictures! I think this is the first I've seen of the infamous Andy. :)

What a good sport to wear that tunic and come out to the event to cheer you on! I've vowed *not* to expose Brian to the SCA (except possibly a Susan workshop event, but that hardly counts). Not so hard given that I barely hit any anymore outside of Pennsic. He might join our RenDance performance troupe, though. I can just see him all cute in a doublet and trunkhose. Drools...
