Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |amusedamused]

It's that time again, campers! The Pennsic University class list is up and it's time to play my favorite game: What The Fuck Do You Suppose They Teach In THAT Class?! Followed by my second favorite game: Dude, You Named Your Class WHAT?!



"What Were We Talking about in Damascus in the 16th Century?" You're asking me? I can't remember what I had for dinner last night.

"Dance of the Drum" I want you people to trust me on this, this class can not end well.

"Period Furniture You Can Build in Your Dorm Room" First: This guy knows his audience. Second: AHAHAHAHAHA!

"Building Easy Spear and Javelin Targets" Step one: Get annoying fangirl.

"Lets Make a REALLY Spiffy Book 1" This will probably only be funny to me and Caitlin, as we're the only ones who sat through a class taught by this instructor where she spent some time discussing the miriad folding techniques of the middle ages. And by "some time" I mean AN HOUR AND A HALF! OF FOLDING! (And for those librarians among you thinking "ooh, that sounds fascinating!" Trust me.. it's not.. not after about 45 minutes.)

"Cute Cascarde: Gentilezza d'Amore" I once had a guy tell me I had a cute cascarde. I had to slap him.

"Strange Stories of Women's Health" O.O

"Pennsic Sanitation for the Compleat Idiot" Which is subtitled "Quit putting that much dishwashing detergent in the washtub you FUCKING moron, it'll give you the runs." Not that I've treated that.

"So you want to be a Barber-Surgeon" More. Than. Anything.

"20 Songs Every SCAdian Should Know" I've got $5 that says neither "Moose, moose, I like a moose" nor "Whore on the Listfield" are in there.

"Cymry y dyn ni! : We are Welshmen!" I don't even know why this is funny, I only know that I snarfed tea out my nose.

"Talk Like A Viking" Please.. please don't.

"The Good, the Bad and the Oh-My-God-What-Are-They-Wearing?" The sad part is which of these I fit into most of the time.


We won't go into the series of classes on the Kama Sutra, the bad BAD puns on Star Wars titles, or the set of classes about prostitutes and courteseans (which I am TOTALLY taking). Let's just say it should be yet another

"Garb Maintenance for Non-Costumers: So, you've gotten a spiffy new outfit. How do you keep it nice? What's the best way to get blood stains out?"

"Spinning Flax with Spindle and Distaff" The funny part of this, of course, is that virtually none of us can do it and EVERYBODY throughout big chunks of the MA did it from the time they could walk.

"Kugelach: Judaic Knucklebones for the Overly Dexterous" I thought Kugel was food? I'm confused.

"RuneValdr: This is a class on energy healing-like Reiki, but not (it was called Runic Reiki last year). You will leave being able to do hands on healing, distance healing and more. Prior knowledge of runes or Reiki not required."

"Period Prostitution: This is an overview of how to dress as and otherwise play the part of a lady (or gentleman) of the evening-or spot them walking around the war!" To get the full impact of this, imagine that it's being taught by the Runic Reiki instructor. I think that person just called you a harlot!!

"A Discussion of Differences: Duke Logan Ebonwoulfe: An open forum to discuss the cultural differences inherent in our fighting culture, the causes of tempers and how to avoid them."

I believe the term was "dockside harlot". And that's no harlot, that's my wife!

a) sounds like a court mandated attendance type event, or b) tempers? Didn't they use leeches for that?

"Dance of the Drum" . OK... this.. is .. fantastic. Do the drums dance like the tea set in Beauty and the Beast? Or does one need the talking stick to dance the dance of the drum?

"Building Easy Spear and Javelin Targets" I think the drum class could cover any targets that one would need. And how easy to do have to make spears, people from many many thousands of years ago, with little brain development, living in caves, smashing things open with rocks, could build a spear that could assist in taking down a woolly mammoth. Now they tell me that an art history grad student needs an easier way? Really people.
