Enough about the iffiness of the hotel. We went to the Maryland Rennaisance Festival today, and had a grand time. lostsatyr and I saw Shakespeare's Skum doing "Tag Team Romeo & Juliet" and "Othello: A Really Bad Day" (the Skum doing the afore mentioned plays in thirty minute comedic sketches). They were as hysterically funny as I remember them being from last year. I especially liked the guy playing Iago in the Skum's version of Othello - he was a bad, bad bad boy! *spanks himself repeatedly*
A number of pretty things parted me from my money - a new purple unicorn puppet, a silver moon angel ear cuff, and a pretty tray for my mom (I having been requested to return with something for her). lostsatyr was also kind enough to purchase a cloak for me where he bought a pair of wrap pants. The cloak is a lovely shade of green (and will match the outfit I'm planning to wear tomorrow), while lostsatyr's pants are black with a very pretty design of gold Asian dragons and red flames. I think we shall have to make him a red shirt to go with the pants sometime. :)
I also discovered how to achieve the proper effect with my blue leather bodice - it involves loosening the shoulder ties so it sits lower. Yay me! This means I do not have to have it taken in (a potentially expensive proposition, as it's leather).
After the Faire, we adjourned to the hotel for a while to rest, and then went to Cheeburger Cheeburger for milkshakes. They were very good, but I think that next time, I shall get the smaller size - the regular one was rather daunting.
Must remember to stop at the book shop at the Faire tomorrow; Eleanor Herman has a new book out - Sex With the Queen - and will be autographing copies tomorrow. I really enjoyed her previous book, Sex With Kings, so I want to pick up this one as well. I might also treat myself to The Six Wives of King Henry VIII, by David Starkey - I really enjoyed it when I took it out of the library last year, and the book shop here has it in paperback.
I grow tired...time to stop writing and get ready for bed.
