I know that 2009 was pretty horrid for a lot of people, and to be honest, 2010 has been not great, either so far. One way we might make the rest of 2010 a bit better is to spread some love around. So if you care to reply to this post I will give you a response of something I like about you.

If you like participating in these sorts of things and want to repost this in your LJ, that would be fun, too, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.

This could be tricky. I guess I’m going to have to ask y’all to specify which meme you’re participating in. XD

From [livejournal.com profile] elasait.

If you respond to this, I will:
1. Tell you why I befriended you.

2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.

3. Tell you something I like about you.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.

5. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.

6. Tell you my favourite user pic of yours. ( now I don’t know everyone’s variety of pictures so I might have to hunt.)
In return, you must post this in your LJ.

From [livejournal.com profile] kampfrau.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me. You’ll need to PM me your mailing address if you’re one of the first 5. In return, all you need to do is repost this on your LJ and offer to make 5 things for 5 other people.

Here’s how it works:

You comment with your username, and people will comment ANONYMOUSLY with things they love and cherish about you. I say anonymously because it makes the atmosphere lighter and more mysterious, kind of like a Secret Santa only with love and holiday cheer! People will wonder who these caring people are and appreciate the fact that they exist, not only the fact that they may be best friends with them.

Then find people you care about and have something nice to say to - even if you don’t know them! - and leave them something that will make their heart feel a little warmer at night. This way, the love will go around and around and the magical spirit of the season can be cherished and appreciated by all.

Stolen shamelessly from the llama. (Damn, he’s too good with those thought-provoking questions.)

I wonder: If you were asked today which chivalric virtue you best represent...which one would it be, and why?

What about me?

1) What part(s) of a typical event is your most and least favorite?

Courts, on both counts. I like courts, as it's a great sum-up of the day, and it's a great way to see what the populace has been doing.

On the other hand, as was the case at Quills and Swords, a large portion of people didn't attend, and they received awards. And hearing someone called up for their AoA (or similar entry-level award) a few times and then people looking around with "who?" leaving their lips isn't something that I particularly like.

It's a part of life, yes. Doesn't mean I have to like it, though.

2) Most inspiring experience in the SCA?

If I were to sum it up at one event, it would be the three courts at Valor. If it were to be a single individual court, though, I would probably have to say [livejournal.com profile] duncanprime's Pelican ceremony or Glendour's knighting. I'm not someone who cries easily, but both ceremonies, in their beauty, caused me to get a little misty, and it inspired me to drive forward. Not necessarily for a Peerage, or for any other award, mind, but I desire to help add to the community, like these two gentles have done. And instead with words, with deeds, because we all know that talk can be cheap and tawdry in comparison to one's deeds.

3) Who is someone you admire (& why), but have never gotten to talk with or meet? (Let's keep it in the SCA)

There's a list. I swear, I have a list for everything.

Mikal the Ram.
Duchess Kolfinna is on that list.
That certain group of May Day revelers. If I could get in their heads, and see why they hadn't come up with this sooner...
Duke Cariadoc.

I'm absolutely sure there are more. Right now, though, I'm not quite awake.

4) Most embarrassing experience in the SCA? (No, I'm not talking about the most snorting experience, unless that actually embarasses you.)

I so have the story for this, then. (Every time I tell my mother this one, she cracks up.)

It was literally right after Luther and Maerwynn were crowned Prince and Princess at that particular Crown Tourney, and there was dancing out on the field. Coming relatively fresh from Bellewode that year, I was all over the dancing, and still being a relatively new dancer at that time, I looked at it as a time to relearn stuff I'd forgotten about. So, there we were on the field, dancing Black Nag. I was having some difficulty with keeping my skirts out of the way of my feet anyway, but by the time we started with Black Nag, I thought I'd mastered it.

Well, not entirely.

My foot hit a divot in the ground, and down I went. And then the rest goes like a movie.

Everything stopped. The musicians stopped. All conversations ceased. It was eerie.

I popped up with "I'm okay!" and we started over, but maaaan, was that relatively embarrassing.

5) I know you do some stuff with beads - describe it more exactly. Is this something you want to do more of in the SCA, or is it mostly just a modern thing?

I primarily bead onto some kind of thread or string - it's relatively simple, yes, but as my big focus is prayer beads, it doesn't need to be fancy. I do enjoy making jewellery, as for a while, that was my main focus, but prayer beads (and their predecessors, paternosters) really started speaking to me on a bunch of levels. Right now, I'm straddling beadwork as an SCA discipline and as a modern world one as well.

Who wants an LJ icon?

First TEN people to respond get one. You must host the icon yourself (photobucket, flickr, etc.), and I ask that you do at least credit me.

Tell me what you want to see. If you're a herald, do you want to see trumpets in saltire?

Dancers, do you want...dancers? (BOING BOING!)

Musicians, do you want me to go full forte on the music?

Let me know. Don't be shy! And, of course it's all up to artistic vision, but, I'll do my best to give you what you want.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well. We all can make stuff!

Spread the Art Love <3

Of course, it always helps to send me your address and a couple hints, like your favourite colour and what kind of stuff you're into. :D

Hell, for my SCA dance friends, it could even be a few dances with me. -Z

you are lightcyan
#E0FFFF

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Okay.

To be fair, I'm battling the start of a migraine.

But I thought I'd post at the very least SOMETHING.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, zephyrofgod sent to me...
Twelve macs roleplaying
Eleven polearms thinking
Ten celts a-composing
Nine beads acting
Eight stars a-meditating
Seven books a-singing
Six kilts a-drawing
Five ba-a-a-and geeks
Four roleplaying games
Three brobdingnagian bards
Two glow-in-the-dark stars
...and a dice in an ancient history.
Get your own Twelve Days:


Also, so excited for Kris Kinder. No lie.

I'm hoping [livejournal.com profile] purplellamaboi will be able to actually make it. It's be hard to hold a household meeting without him. [livejournal.com profile] huscarl105, do we have any plans to go over things yet? I know of a few good restaurants in town, but I'm uncertain of how many of them are within a close distance to site/post-revel. (I know South KC like the back of my hand. Northland...not so much.) Feel free to drop me a PM, email, etc. We'll figure out something, right? As for the rest of the Calontiri on my flist, let me know if you're going to be there so I can at least get you a hug or something. :P

Anyway.

I really should try to sleep. Even with the risk of cracked out dreaming.
