Also, I went to the VA renaissance fair last weekend. Laurie bought me early xmas and bday presents: a wicked awesome renaissance-type shirt to dress in when I go to other fairs (it looks awesome with my cloak, plus, it's comfy to sit around the house in), and a FREAKIN SWORD!!!!!! SOOOOOO F-ING COOL! The twelve year old in me is bouncing off the walls. It has a soft leather scabbard with a strap to sling over my shoulder. I named her Aislinne (which means "dream" or "vision" in gaelic. Yes, I am the biggest dork ever. Shut up. At least I own it.)
On a related note, a guy came in to work today to donate some books and asked if we took old Dungeon and Dragons books. Before my boss said yes, I nearly yelled "Oooh! Oooh! What edition are they?" Yeah... nerd...
Lastly, go out and find a documentary called "The Party's Over." It made me not only respect Phillip Seymour Hoffman as an actor, as I already did, but as a person.
I think I'm gonna do a mini-review of it soon, but I want to watch it at least one more time before I do so.
