LIS 451 rocks

Can I take a moment to be incredibly proud of myself for a moment? Thanks.

Today I took apart a computer, all the way down to the motherboard. And then I put it back together again. And it *worked*.

I think I'm going to love this class.

Best threat ever

So, I'm back from Pennsic , safe and sound (only re-broke my toe once and gakked up my ankle once) and I'm feeling better about participating in the SCA , although I'm still resigning as seneschal. [In normal-world speak: "so, I'm back from a national 2-week-long conference (11,000+ attendees)...and I'm feeling better about continuing to be active in the organization, but I'm still resigning as President of our local group."]

And now I'm planning my September schedule of SCA activities and looking at event announcements and the like. For the following to make sense, you need to know that at SCA events, wandering, unsupervised children are a continual problem that no one seems to be able to solve successfully. But I think that an SCA group in Indiana may have the solution:

"Please keep track of your children. Children left un-attended too long will be given an espresso and a free puppy."

Best. Threat. Ever.

Pennsic Prep

I'm off today to Pennsylvania for two weeks of Medieval- at the Pennsic War. But I'm getting a late start (haven't left yet, obviously, since I'm blogging) due to a need for sleep.

And because I managed to break a toe yesterday. The pinky on my driving foot.

Looks like two weeks of limping around the campground and wearing tennis shoes with long gowns. Oh well. I'm still going to have a great time!

See you in two weeks!
