by Lisa Falzon. I love it.
I am also enjoying this excellent history (& stuff) blog. She's very well-written and just my style.
What was I going to do today? Oh, right, loll around on a couch at Lux and read all the "Anne Boleyn" tags on this blog. DONE.
I'm trying to stay focused on being a winner at life, which basically involves staying on task and getting things done. Results have been "ok" so far. I feel like a martyr because I made an obnoxiously complex cake for my mother's birthday and helped run the kid's craft thing at the museum in the same day. Any time I positively interact with strangers, particularly strange children, I expect a medal. Also, I was hit on by a girl today after I showed her how to weave a rag rug out of strips of t-shirt material using a hula hoop as a loom.
Free tip: just because someone tells you they're into history (or whatever), don't assume that means they hang out at the ren faire, because I don't. And DON'T LOOK SURPRISED when I say so. It makes me worried that I'm exuding a vibe.
A ren faire vibe.
