Sorry again. Not…

Sorry again. Not entirely my fault, as I've been without computer access for quite a while (and my computer still hasn't arrived -- I just happen to be at my friend Thida's office right now), but I'm still sorry you haven't heard from me in so long.

The move went fine, but I find I have no desire to do a post mortem on it. Pennsic was also a blast (much storytelling, dancing, flirting, etc (well, not really any etc. for me, but there was plenty going on in camp, let me tell ya)), but it's a little hard to describe. Picture going camping in the woods for a week, but the campground is filled with pavilions, you get to dress like Queen Guinevere (or Arthur, or anyone from 600 to 1600 A.D., from any country that had contact with Europe (just about anywhere but Australia (and there was a big Australian contingent attending!)), and meet quite a few kindred spirits and eat cornish pasties (and lots of more modern food if you wanted (they really really could use a curry stand) and dance and sing and make really huge campfires (oh, and there was a war going on, which lots of people paid attention to, but I must admit, I didn't go to a single battle). If you want to know more about it, you should really hunt up the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) web pages -- they're called the Rhialto, I think.

Not much else to report -- Mills is lovely, but a bit dull since classes haven't started yet. In fact, I've been bored out of my skull (read five books yesterday, which is why I'm not giving you a rundown on the books I've read recently, though I must note that _Resurrection Man_ is much much better than I expected, though it gave me nightmares). Made banana muffins and lemon tea bread (would you believe there's a lemon tree in my backyard? And many many plum tomato vines?) and took the muffins to a birthday party that Thida and Cliff took me too today, so am feeling quite a bit better. Still a little lonely when I stop and think about it, but I suppose that's to be expected. Bonk me if I whine about it too much.

Can't wait for classes to start. Glad to be back. No access tomorrow, but if I can persuade the computers at school to work properly (they were having trouble Friday), I'll be back then. Goddess bless.
