Was the booth a good showcase of his woodworking skills? Was he also offering wood-framed photos of the booth?

If I recall correctly, he was building a bridge made out of Popsicle sticks while his beautiful wife was giving him a pedicure and painting his toenails.

Yeah, that's it!

P.S. It’s about time for Mark to show up. I think he’s slacking today. ;\)



Isn't he always?

You know what. I had a dream the other night that I was at an electronics show, and met Mark at the Axiom booth. Now that's a random dream!


Please tell me he wasn’t dressed in a camgal outfit.

And loved every minute of it. Well there was that one shot in the solar plexus, and that other one to the kidney, and the time my helmet got ripped clean off . . . .Yep I loved it. \:\)

I’m not in the SCA anymore. Did it mainly when I attended Oregon State University. I liked the group we had there but every time I’ve moved somewhere else it just wasn’t the same so I haven’t rejoined.

Our group up there was pretty egalitarian. Everyone had to participate in formation fighting and some form of archery or skirmishing both things other groups seemed to frown upon at least at the time (late 70s) because they were not “Ka-nig-it-ly.” Also, no weapons were off limits when we fought each other which was fun.

I was also an avid (no fanatical) RPGer so I also participated in live action stuff down in the heating tunnels between the Dorms. The “Wizards” spells were coloured tennis balls, so I showed up one day with a tennis ball cannon claiming it was my staff. They told me to go back to being a fighter.

I gave away my plate armour but still have the chainmail boxed up in the attic. I couldn’t part with that as it took way to long to make. Though I should make a new set I did sort of make the weave to tight so it’s heavy as hell. It also got a little rusty after a big D&D argument over the difficulty of a “saving throw” to avoid drowning if you fell in the water in full armour. I didn’t drown. ;\)

I would love to get back into it but I’d have to find the right group of people and have more time to devote to it since I can get pretty caught up in that sort of stuff.

What did you and I’ll assume “we” refers to your wife do? When? Where?

Ah, different worlds... we were involved mainly from about '98-'03, 04. Not fighters, mostly just hangers-outers, as it were. Kingdom of the West, and we played with the Principality of Cynagua, although we technically live in the Mists.

Went to Estrella in Arizona in February 2002. That was decidedly cold...

I thought you might get a kick out of the name and no I didn’t make it up. It’s short for “Campaign Girl” though the pictures I linked are more specifically “Race Queens.”

Boy, I bet this is becoming quite the educational thread for some, I mean look what the Savant just shared.
