I Never Lie... the Truth Be Told

Did y'all think I forgot about my blog post from a few days ago?

So... anne marie guessed the lie! Congrats clever girl! *wink* This is all you get... no details! (did I say I would give details?? NOPE) Ha!

So, I guess I got my usual upper respiratory infection from the campfire smoke and lack of sleep last weekend. I've worked from home for the last 3 days. I have cabin fever and need to get out! I hate being sick. UGH!

But... I did get some new rennie bling in the mail today:
It's an arm ring. I can use it with my Scottish or my Viking garb! I almost forgot that I ordered it because it took about 8 weeks to come in. 

I'll consider this my early Yule gift for myself!

Weekend adventures - The Final Huzzah!

It was the closing weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival and the last rennie event for 2014! 
The final Huzzah!
I wore some new Viking garb all made from wool! I was very warm indeed for it was a bit chilly on Friday! Wiley, the coyote pelt, kept my neck and shoulders very warm, although it kept wanting to slide off my shoulders! This is all authentic 9th Century clothing.

Saturday was 2 kilts day! I wore the Douglas Green tartan during the day and then changed into the Royal Stuart tartan for King Midas Masquerade Ball in the evening. 

My friend Holly had to talk me into going, but I admit I had fun! She looked stunning in her court dress and we even matched! The highlight of the evening was when they started the Viennese Waltz. Holly picked up the dance very quickly and we twirled around the floor beautifully! It was quite fun seeing about 8 or 9 people with cameras following us... oh the paparazzi! 

We packed up camp early Sunday and I got home and enjoyed a nice hot shower! Huzzah!!!

December tarot

King of Wands
The king can appear as a person or a part of myself that I need to pay attention to! This king is a fiery one and a good leader. I'm hoping that this will be a good month full of positive energy! I have found this to be true... I create the energy around me! I don't even realize how much I affect co-workers and friends; if I approach a situation with energy and enthusiasm then things work quite well! I just need to not let it get to my ego!

How accurate was my card for November? Very accurate (in my humble opinion). The big work project went well and everyone was happy with the outcome! I was on top of everything and so far things are running smoothly!

I'll tell y'all about my fun Thanksgiving weekend in another post. Have a great week y'all!

I Never... Lie

I thought I would combine two of my blog features: Which one of these things that I have never done is a lie? Also, you need to let me know if you have done any of these things that I never have. Got it?
1. I have never been arrested.
2. I have never taken X (ecstasy).
3. I have never been in a MMF menage a trois.
4. I have never seen the aurora borealis.
5. I have never been to Japan.
6. I have never had sex with a porn star.
7. I have never been snow skiing.
8. I have never had sex in a church.
9. I have never purchased a dildo.

OK friends.... which one is the lie?

And then 'fess up if you have done any of these things!

No imaginary friend for me

This week I was going through the scrapbook my mother made for me. I found a letter that I sent to my grandparents when I was 6 years old. This was from 1968. I know this because this was our first trip to Minnesota with our new baby, my little sister. We had just adopted her in December. 

I apparently didn't have an imaginary friend... I had imaginary pet bunnies! LOL

Happy Friday y'all!

I'm still here... and Book Stuff

Great Big Bears blogger buddies!!!

I can't believe it's been so long since I last blogged! Yikes! A project at work has kept me crazy busy!

So... rather than let my blog dwindle and die on the vine I had better post something...!!

I guess I'll use a favorite book meme:

Let's say you're the main character of the book you're currently reading. 
Where are you and what are you doing? 

Again, I'm not asking for the name of the book or your character's name; just where are you and what are you doing?


I just got back from the Himalayas where some friendly yeti made me an ice knife. I'm now back in India where I'm looking for my father who is possessed by a Hindu demon, called a roksoyuj!

Veterans Day

I'm proud of my father who served in Korea.
Thank you to all the Veterans today!

Not much new with me... still working, eating, sleeping and trying to get in a walk for some light exercise. Allergies still bothering me. The polar vortex is starting to come to the south and we don't like it!

Have a great week y'all!

Just a suggestion...?

The Texas Renaissance Festival and Sherwood Forest Faire are both right around 200 miles from my home in Dallas. Yes... I drive about 3.5 to 4 hours each way to these events! Yes... I like them that much.

I have noticed that many traffic signs are ignored on Texas roads (maybe even everywhere). Both I35 and I45 are just 2 lanes for about half the trip. There are also speed limit changes on both roadways, from 65mph to 75mph. The increase in speed is, surprisingly, ignored!
There is also another sign that completely ignored by most drivers too:
It annoys me to no end that there is more traffic in the left passing lane because there is someone driving along completely oblivious to people around them and actually block the whole interstate for several miles. This just encourages road rage and the tailgaters who love to ride right up on someone's bumper. 

This makes me think, are traffic laws really "laws" or just a suggestion? What other laws do we believe are only a suggestion? 

Well, at least I don't have to make the long drive this weekend or the next. But I will the last 2 weekends in November. I'll try to stay calm and just be about the only one on the road trying to drive safely.

Happy Friday y'all!
