Pennsic day 1

Pennsic day 1, originally uploaded by danceandgeek.

Typing from my iPhone.
When I arrived it had just rained and it was muddy. I got thru troll
and went to lurkr camp, and Greg helped me set up my tent. It was a
loaner tent, and it turned out to be one of those small pimple tents
and my airbed almost fits. When I lie down my head and feet can touch
the ends. The rest of the camp made fun of me but also offered storage
and changing place. Greg loaned me a blanket and I still froze that
night. Apparently I am no longer used to 60 degree nights.

I danced quite a bit. I had to jog my memory on the dancing but muscle
memory seems to kick in and before long I found myself correcting
people, including the teachers (not in public). "this is a 15th c
italian dance, don't reverence that way". "passo -- not spez".

But I also royally messed up whirligig and such.

Lurkr has been really awesome. The head knight Sir Wolfbrand or
Wookie, is very sweet and nice and keeps trying to ply me with alcohol
and steak.

Pennsic chocolate milk is yummy. So are the pierogies.

Ooh, you're camping with Lurkr this year? They're a fantastic camp. The food plan was omg mahvelous. I try to stop in and say hi to Wook -- what's your SCA name so I know who to ask for? :)

Yep! Silence the Bard, dat's me. And yes, I camped with Lurkr one year, but I camped next to them for several years when they were on the same block as Windmaster's Hill. Wookie was in my home canton back when I was in high school, so he's one of those people who had a strong influence on my first impressions of the SCA. He's one of my favorite SCAdians I think. Give him a smooch for me. :D

S'pose I should go pack up the pavilion and amble on up to site, eh? ;)
