Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |quiet]
[what's in my ear |Lucky Me]

Be glad I did the weepy phone post at the beginning of the trip rather than the end. I spent an hour trying to get through the two miles of the Breezewood interchange and then another 20 minutes trying to get through the two miles of the beginning of Rt. 70. *shakes fist*

I have a few things to say that will sound really odd, but I'm going to say them anyway because in a few months I'll want to remember how this feels.

- Last night I wanted to talk to all of you, I almost called half of you, but I didn't want to talk to anyone who hadn't been there. I just.. I just couldn't bring myself to even call my mother because she hadn't been there.

- The trip to Denny's yesterday was the first time in two weeks I'd been around people who weren't part of the same subculture that I am and even though we talk about real world things I still didn't understand what the fuck all those people were talking about. I mean.. really.. what the hell are you all talking about and why are none of you completely incensed by what the King of the Midrealm pulled in order to carry off the Castle Battle?

- I had a violent nightmare this morning. I got Matt off to work and went back to bed only to have a nightmare that got me up nearly screaming. I dreamed that my friend Heather called to say that she'd been stranded on site due to a car failure and when I went back to pick her up I found the place still full of people that the Coopers hadn't kicked off. They were just there. Hanging out. STILL! I screamed "Who are all these people and what the fuck are they still doing on site? Why didn't you tell me?!?" You're thinking "Melly. Sleep. Look into it." and you're right. But that's a nightmare. Trust me.

- While I have color all over, the extent of my sunburn is a four inch long, two inch wide stripe across my left upper arm. Huh. Note to self: ask others to apply your sunscreen for you.

- This morning in the shower I got to play my favorite Pennsic game. "Is It Dirt Or Is It A Bruise?" followed by the fabulous sister game "Damn, I Thought I Had A Tan." I did not, however, wash my hair. It still smells like woodsmoke. *heart clench*


Caitlin, which story would you like to hear retold first?

I washed the woodsmoke out of my hair this morning. It took two applications of shampoo. Now I smell clean. *cries*

Umm... what are my choices?

And exactly what did the King of the Mid do??

My blankie smells like Pennsic. I'm putting it in a plastic bag and taking it out in February.

Well.. let's see.. there's the hoo-hoo story, or the Scottish bellman story, you could always ask for the paper booties story, a regaling of Matt's squiring (which isn't funny, but will make me cry), the night I terrified security by lecturing them on hand kissing, the "side or corner rope" story... you name it.

Oh, and what he did was to get ahold (like with his hands) of his own banner and refuse to relinquish it even when he'd been killed and fallen. So the East had to beat back all of his buddies and then physically carry him off the field. The delay caused by having to carry him through the crowd put them over the time the East had to beat.

Why not just embed it in a tub of quickset concrete? That would be just as legitimate.

They should have put one foot on his chest and had three guys pull upward. That completely stinks.

They still lost the war. And by the sounds of this stunt they deserved to lose.

Um... the security story please.

WHEE!! I missed you guys so much. Mostly I missed you when my tent had a river running through it. But omg I totally thought of you the other day.. I was dumping a spider out of my last pair of clean socks and I thought "Dude, Lizzie would freak if she saw me do that."

I couldn't do it ...

I just could not bring myself to wash out the smell of woodsmoke from my hair just quite yet. This morning I opened the "linens" box, and A box of garb and the smokey smell just drifted right out. Made me seriously ~pause~ for a moment. Then I started hauling out the rest of the wet stuff and laying it out on driveway.

As for stories ... I'm still recalling the "dockside harlot" bit.

Tell us something ... anything. How 'bout Matt's squiring?

I don't think these things sound odd at all. And I'm glad you're back, even if you can't be just yet. <3

Re: nightmare

I missed you the whole way home. The pictures of the Witches came out really well and I'll be mailing them tomorrow. Good lord I miss you... I know you were ready to go home, but I wish we could have stayed for a week just by ourselves. But.. with a babysitter. :)

Re: nightmare

Now that would have been great.....we have a plan which involves bring a babysitter next year.....so perhaps things will be better. Free every night sounds extremely cool to me.
