I have been asked to teach at the upcoming Aquaterra Ithra. squee! I loves teaching and I loves teaching for Ithra especially. it satisfies my need for tidy order and clearly stated expectations. They asked for the short form "Food and Eating in the Current Middle Ages". basically I feed people tasty not scary medieval food and natter on a bit. Frankly, its my typical tasting class. y'all should take it. really! and if I know you're coming? I'll make sure there's something persona appropriate for you :). My sorrel is even back from the WinterOfOurDiscontent aka snowpocolypse so expect stuffed eggs :)
the sunshine is making me cranky. its PERFECT riding weather. and I have a pony. and I cant ride cuz I am working. Now, I'm grateful for a job that allows me to pay for said pony, dont get me wrong. But I keep trying to think how I can make the 2hr drive after work and still get in some time before it gets too dark....yeah. I havent figured out how to bend space and time yet. need to work on that.
in the meantime I'm daydreaming about all the places we can go (assuming we can hitch a ride with someone) and the things we can do (assuming he doesnt think the whole gig is LAME and lose his brain). I'm even toying with the idea of making one of my A/S entry options some kind of horse costume. mmcnealy did a nice A/S entry some years back and it got me thinking.... (run away! run away!).
what colors look good on a shiney copper penny pony? can I make my own bells? how can I incorporate those spiffy horse pendants I took photos of in the Cluny last year? (mmm. enamels....would give me a reason to dust off the kiln....) Raj's current bridle is pretty purple nylon. I would want to remake that in some kind of period appropriate material. yep, the brain fair reels with the possibilities.
but first? I need to get going on my giant day o'science. I brought lunch AND dinner and expecty to be here for the long haul today. whee!
