"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

roll your leg over, 'tis better that way

weeeeeeeee! yesterday i went to the renfest with the argo gang! it was the 2nd time i went this year, and it wasn't the same without laura, megan, and spam, but it was STILL amazingly fun. on the way there i rode with matt, anita, and jenn, and we got separated from the other van, got lost in pennsylvania, and had quite a time getting to the festival, but we eventually got there. so we saw shows and ate things and walked around and had fun. i came out of my shell a bit, yay me! i wanted to get some garb, but i figured i shouldn't since LAST time i spent a wad on those wings, and i have all the necessities for a gown at home (i got the pattern and fabric around 2 years ago, i just never made the thing or got my mom to do it). maybe that will be an incentive to make the thing over christmas break. NO garb for you until you make it! hah! anyway, so the fest was fun. on the way back, we DIDN'T get lost, and anita and jenn kept singing those "wicked wenches" songs, so i got them stuck in my head. matt was unconsciously speeding, so we got pulled over, but the cop was nice and just gave him a written warning. ah, the adventures in the "love bubble."

i talked to laura on the phone last night for a while, and today i woke up around noon. i had brunch with a lot of people, and people kept coming and going.

oh. i must get to fencing practice now so i can whip the newbies into shape (muhahahahahahaaaaa...). maybe i'll post later. bye!

"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

(no subject)

wooo! i just made a friend! i was at fencing practice, in one of the raquetball courts, attempting to teach 2 new girls how to parry. prof. nonnenmacher came in and helped, and then this other girl came in and asked about fencing. her name is amanda, and she's a freshman. prof. nonnenmacher told me to help her find a glove and foil and then teach her some of the basics. so we went into the equipment room, and since she's left-handed (she's ambidextrous, but she uses her left hand most of the time), i had a hard time finding her a glove. most of the equipment there is older than i am, and it's all scungy and worn. but then i realized i had a few extra gloves in my bag, including a left-handed glove (from a set given to me), and i let her borrow the left-handed one. so i taught her the basics like how to hold a foil, advances, retreats, and lunges, and basic finger exercises. i hope i didn't confuse her too much. we talked a bit, and after fencing practice as i left the building, it was sprinkling a little outside. 5 seconds after i left, it turned into a downpour. i got near the campus center and amanda was running behind me, laughing. she found the situation quite amusing. we went through the campus center and decided to just run for it instead of waiting for the storm to ease. we live in the same building complex, which isn't TOO far away, so we were running through the storm, laughing. it was seriously pouring, and i was splashing through ankle-deep puddles and streams gushing over the stairs. i returned to my room completely soaked yet smiling. the Goddess really has a sense of humor. coming back from fencing really sweaty, are you? you need a SHOWER! here! *whoosh*

ah, life. i really need to do homework today. maybe i'll hold off on squirting hot tea on my painting until it dries off outside. i think i'll hang up my new little dream catcher and then work on my film paper or study for the english quiz tomorrow. byeeeeee!
