Just a quick update.
–Drove over to the Wairarapa (that’s over the mountains to the northeast, for Viewers At Home) for a BBQ for the local members of the lifestyle block mailing list. Some really neat people !
–We’re in full-on pre-event mode for the upcoming Cantebury Faire. SCA folks play a lot more authentic here, plus our new role as The Local Mongols has made us want to play the part less slackly, so we’re tossing together some new garb. Plus we need a new door for the yurt.
–There’s this show in March that we’re doing (dancing and storytelling), and there are choreographies to do and practice for that. I’ve got brain-lock for the piece I’m supposed to do. Choreographies for “Please, O King, don’t marry my sister, or behead me, or anything” don’t spring to mind as readily as they do for, say, “Look at me, aren’t I the cutest thing ?”, or “My Baby done left me, and I feel so blue”, you know ? :^P
–Stephen managed to twist his knee at fight practice yesterday — not fighting, but playing soccer afterwards. Now he’s grousing around the house, annoyed because he can’t go out and cut brush. (I think he’s definitely feeling the only-three-TV-stations thing, too.)
–We may have eels in the stream out front. At least, the Maori guy who asked if we minded if his kids went eeling in the front paddock seemed to think it was a possibility. I wonder if they caught any ?
–There was seal in the harbor this morning, fishing along the waterfront. Huh !
