Crocuta Plate


Went to Scarborough Faire with baktre/Whines, athene1765 and twistdbutterfly. Pretty fun trip. A couple of major hurdles--my camera died mysteriously a few nights ago, after five years of loyal service. I know a *lot* of my friends are "very upset" with me, and "sorry" that my camera died, but...there you go. :) So...knghtsky had given me his camera as a gift, and, not to look a gift horse in the mouth, it's a damn frustrating instrument. After I downloaded adapter software so that I could translate from the native format to JPG, everything was pretty blurry and low-rez. But...I got a couple of decent photos.

Need a new camera.

I got meself a torc, a cast bronze affair. And a giant, like maybe two-cup, ladle, but I got that at an antique store, and it was originally used to smelt metal, so I'm a bit afraid to use it in spaghetti or something. It might be poison. Had a baked sweet potato for lunch. It was SO good, I'll have to start cooking those at home. Wore my wolf cloak over the priest robe Athena bought me a few years ago...darn near melted in the heat. Butterfly and Whines are really red, too.

*Snicker* Saw a performance called "Fairy Facts" (as opposed to Fairy Tales) by the Sisters Grimm. Cute act, kind of sauced up the fairy tale Cinderella and added some suggestive humor and a few musical numbers like "The Codependant Waltz." They were taking hostages volunteers from the audience, and started pacing through the crowd looking for "a distinguished gentleman..." eventually settling on Whines. He was asked to play the part of "The Fairy Godfather," who played the patron for young, attractive maidens to cover up his alternative, dubious lifestyle and maybe dating partners, ahem ahem.

You couldn't get Athena and Butterfly to stop laughing. I don't know what got into them.

They took the wings off him and gave him back to me, and eventually we finished puttering and shopping. It was a good trip, overall.

In other news, I broke Butterfly's car, or at least, the radiator fan thing isn't turning because the belt broke, the plastic chassis warped and it started spewing out white smoke. This qualifies as broke, but we got it to the mechanic.

*sigh* Gotta figure out if I can get to the capitol. They're doing another hearing, this time the senate version of the anti-gay marraige amendment, I need to figure out if I can get down there. It'll be tricky.

I sleep now...

Dammit, I'm near tears. This is so stupid.

That fucking anti-gay marriage is going to a senate public hearing tomorrow. Thosde bastards posted the announcement Saturday Night. They're not even obeying their own rules. What the fuck is wrong with these people? Why is it so damned important to get their big throbbing hate woodies out and wave them around? My car's broken--well, butterfly's car's broken. I'm feeling powerless now. I wasn't told about this fast enough t oget anytime off work :( And I can't even drive down there to be LATE to work. And I'm just tired and heat-sick from being out at scarby all day. Ooog, now I'm pissed. I HATE TEXAS. HATE. This stupid redneck backwater conservative shithole of a state. But I'll never leave Austin, at least until the day they win and it's not Austin anymore.

Okay, I'm finished screaming. Now I'm going to write a nice friendly concerned letter and fax it to the entire damned senate. And I will not use the word "fuck." Or say "I hate Texas."

Stupid arrogant southern baptist right-wing...mutter...mutter...
