November 13, 2009 - Shocked...Just Shocked...

Well it has been a few weeks since I last posted, but it was a crazy time getting ready for Feast of the Hare (FOTH) lunch.

Well November 7th came and went with a Bang! So on the Friday I whisked myself to Mel and Dave's to finish the pre-cook before the lunch and it had been a very long day because as soon as I walked into the house (which was so quiet and dark) I promptly fell asleep on the couch...and lo and behold Mel and Dave come home at 6pm...and at 6:15pm Yoshi and Augusta arrive...well aren't we all three (or five) peas in a pod! :) I had such a fabulous time that when it was past 11pm we had quite a bit completed! YAY us!

So the dawning of FOTH had me rolling my butt out of bed in hopes that people would enjoy the lunch. After working with the food for well over a month and a half; I couldn't even imagine eating it at this point (usually happens to me when I am cooking like that) with the hope and wishful thinking I was off to cook the lunch.

All I have to say is is ALWAYS valuable to have a good friend in the kitchen with you to be the Kitchen I couldn't have done it without Dave's clearheaded thinking...definitely without my thinking! If you want the full story you will have to ask me in person for that one!

So we missed all the fighting (or at least I did) any other fun scheduled...but I was excited to have the lunch over...and the fundraiser a success at $145 for the Barony...and time to dress as I have a White Wolf Fian presentation to the Queen! Wow! was that not intense! So my challenge is to create a Saxon Gown with as much hand sewn as possible with the time constraints and all the accessories...This is all due next FOTH. So Good luck to me! LOL

On to court, with the biggest surprise EVER!!! I guess that is what happens when you have an evil Baron and Baroness (just kidding! really!) but they so graciously gave me the honour of the Great Chalice of Skraeling Althing for my work at trying to
Emelote in front of Their Excellenciesbe as authentic as possible and to share me least I think that is what it was for! Honestly I was so shocked that I really can't remember exactly what they said...maybe someone can help me..

So...the other cool stuff at court was the handing over of my job as Seneschal to Lady Aevia...the presentation of the taxes and I swear I had nothing to do with the Bunny Flail...and the presentation of the $145 to Their Excellencies as the representative of our household The Surly Mermaid.

So all in all it was a crazy day and most satisfying.... Thank you everyone for their purchases of the lunch, and my surprises...and everything. I have a fabulous time at FOTH.
