I have recovered sufficiently from yesterday’s antics to share photos and quotage.
“The costumes at Ren Faires are so much better than the ones at anime conventions.”
Me, on seeing the above: “PIKACHU!!”
“That’s a lot of little kids around the maypole. I wonder if their parents know their children are doing a fertility dance around a giant phalic symbol?”
“Watch, by the end of the dance she’ll have a whole line of kids trailing after her like ducklings.”
“Now, it’s very important to keep the ribbon off the ground. So if we just loop it around you a few more times…”
“I would pretend I don’t know any of you, but the way I’m dressed at the moment, I really can’t pull it off.”
I decide to take a nap/sunbathe on top of a picnic table.
Random passerby: “Holy crap, did she pass out?!”
M and J: “No, she’s fine.”
RP: “Are you sure?”
Me: “I’m fine. Really.”
RP: “I was about to do CPR!”
J: “Wait, I need to get a picture of you with your henna. Okay, pretend to be dead.”
I will point out that I was coerced into getting this. Okay, only kind of coerced. And okay, I did kind of love the attention it brought…
Finally, the best quote of the day:
Me: “Oooh, take the next exit, we can go to the Mars Cheese Castle!”
Honestly, the roadtrip there and back is half the fun.
