I used to live near a llama farm. I never went to visit the llamas though. How sad.

Did anyone have anything tasty for lunch?

Ambar, did you remember to make the floors drool-proof for when you again post photos of hunky men in kilts and tights?

There was a llama farm where I lived in Dillon, MT... They were very strange looking critters next to all those cattle. Lovely, but strange... you'd see all the cattle and then a field of llamas and then more cattle.

Ohhhh, lamb with mint jelly is wonderful. I think for lunch I am either going to go out for Thai food, or perhaps I'll finish off my Lamb, Beef & Chicken Biryani that is leftover from the other night. Hmmm, if I get rolling, Pad Thai sounds great.

True. My gym membership is being wasted.. I really need to get back there! Hopefully now that it's summer a. less people will be there, and b. I won't keep catching colds from everyone else because they won't be sick anymore. It was getting a little crazy.

This Just In from the World of Entertainment:

Reprinted with permission from the pages of Dromedary Musician Magazine (DMM):
Dateline: Harrisburg, PA

Popular Musical Duo Calls it Quits.

Tears are flowing like spring floodwaters here along the verdant banks of the mighty Susquehanna River at the news that the legendary musical pairing of Pepe and Minardil have decided to dissolve their longstanding partnership and pursue individual careers.

DMM spoke to Pepe on the spacious verandah of his penthouse apartment overlooking the pulsating musical district of Second Street, Harrisburg.

DMM: Pepe, you’re a llama.

Pepe: The word is pronounced “yahma”. But I prefer to be called a Dromedary-American.

DMM: Of course. As a Dromedary-American, how did you first become interested in traditional Scottish Bagpipe music?

Pepe: I was born in the Andes mountains. This is very rugged territory, with steep and broken terrain. I loved it very much. Then one day I heard some tourists at the petting zoo where I worked talking about the “Highlands”. I figured, to be named in this way, these lands must be very HIGH indeed, no? So I stowed aboard a tramp steamer bound for Aberdeen.

DMM: And you fell in love with the mountains of Scotland?

Pepe: No. Have you seen the mountains of Scotland? Beautiful, yes. But HIGH? Huh, they are barely higher than these so-called Appalachian Mountains here. Puh. Feed me a bushel of yams and I can build you a higher mountain range. But the music, oh the heavenly bagpipe music. I felt as if I had found my calling.

DMM: And you have been playing ever since?

Pepe: Yes. About six weeks now.

DMM: That’s not much time to practice. I understand the Pipes are very difficult to learn.

Pepe: This is true. But most people cannot tell the difference between a GOOD Piper and a BAD Piper. I figure, what they don’t know. . .

DMM: We understand. Now tell us about your partnership with Minardil. Your first collaboration was a fusion of Scottish and Jewish musical traditions. . .

Pepe: Yes. We called that album “Haggis Schmaggis”.

DMM: It was an immediate sensation. Your follow-up release was the wildly popular Reggae-flavored disk, “No more thistles for me, mon.”

Pepe: We did that one just for summer. We wanted something with a real beach party flair.

DMM: Some critics have claimed that Minardil’s ripping tuba solo on “Dub Rasta Polka” is the highlight of the album.

Pepe: They are entitled to their opinion.

DMM: The breakup, Pepe. Why now? You’re just about to release your third album in five weeks, the Zydeco Dance Hall inspired “Bayou Boogie: Put your lips on it and blow”. Pepe and Minardil are the hottest inter-species act since Wilbur and Mr. Ed. Why throw it all away now?

Pepe: Frankly, I need to grow as a musician. I need to stretch my musical legs. . .

DMM: All four of them?

Pepe: Yes. And there is, quite frankly, only so much you can do with the combination of Pipes and Tuba. Working with Minardil has been great, but I think I have explored the totality of the music he and I can make together. It’s time to move on.

DMM: Well, thank you for your time, Pepe. And I love the kilt.

Pepe: You’re welcome. Would you care to stay for some chicken? Chef is doing it in a lovely creamy paprika mushroom sauce.

DMM: No thank you.

Pepe: We’re having funnel cake and deep fried snickers bars for desert.

Although intrigued by the offer, I had to meet Minardil, so I lifted myself out of the innertube in which I’d been sitting, and headed downtown. I found Minardil just outside Beastworld Studios, where he and Pepe have been laying down the final tracks for their latest album.

DMM: Minardil, Dromedary Musician Magazine. Can we ask you a few questions.

Minardil: Well okay, just a couple, but I’m in a real hurry.

DMM: Of course. First, how do you feel about the breakup of Pepe and Minardil?

Minardil: How do I feel about what now?

DMM: About Pepe going off on his own to pursue a solo career?

Minardil: WHAT? Murry! MURRY!! You get that whooly ba$T&Rd on the phone now!!!

DMM: I take it this is news to you.

Minardil: Who needs him. I’m a TUBA PLAYER dammit. There’s always work out there for a talented tubaist. He wants out? Well good riddance to bad garbage, I say. Let him out. I’ll do just fine on my own. He wants a solo career? Well so do I. I’ll show him. Look at Art Garfunkle and Ringo Starr and . . .that. . .other guy from Wham! They did okay, right? Well so can I.

And there you have it. Standing in the street outside Beastworld Studios, I felt as if I was a witness to history. One era has passed, the Age of Pepe and Minardil. But another musical day is dawning, and I can’t help but wonder what it will bring.

From the Pages of Dromedary Musician Magazine:

Dateline, Harrisburg, PA

Tears are flowing once again along the sun-baked shores of the mighty Susquehanna, but this time, they are Tears of Joy!

In answer to the prayers of Tuba and Bagpipe afficianados everywhere, Pepe and Minardil, the world famous duo who stormed to the top of the Gaelic/Oompah charts before announcing their breakup to shocked fans just weeks ago, have agreed to reunite for a whirlwind world tour.

DMM caught up with the pair at the Camp Hill Petting Zoo, where Pepe was on his coffee break.

Minardil: Would you hold still, you big ox, I have to cut this gum out of your fur.

Pepe: Damn those infernal rugrats.

DMM: Pepe, Minardil, Dromedary Musician Magazine, can I ask you a few questions?

Pepe: Sure. Ouch, watch that.

Minardil: Sorry. Cut a little too close to the hide on that one.

DMM: Pepe, I’ll start with you, if that’s okay.

Pepe: Go ahead.

DMM: First, you’re a llama.

Pepe: Yes, yes, I’m a llama dammit, I thought we covered that last time. What are your questions?

DMM: Just weeks ago, you broke up the act. Why are you getting back together now?

Pepe: I was not in a good place then, you understand? I’d lost sight of what was important. I started living for the parties, the free sex, the money. I forgot is was supposed to be about THE MUSIC, man. You know?

DMM: Not to mention, within days of leaving the group, you were reduced to working at a Petting Zoo for peanuts. Literally, for peanuts that children would toss at you through the bars of your cage.

Pepe: What’s you’re point? It’s honest work! Hey, that’s the last time man. Watch those scissors. I swear it’s like working with Sweeney Todd, here.

DMM: Minardil, over to you. Within two days of the breakup of Pepe and Minardil, you put out a solo Tuba album, “Base of Bass.” It was an international sensation, selling literally dozens of copies all over the world. You must feel great.

Minardil: Well, I certainly feel vindicated. I’ve always known that I had the chops to make it as a solo artist, but I have to tell you, there’s nothing like being part of a team.

DMM: But with your new-found solo success, you can be said to be the new “front man” for the group. Any plans to change the name from “Pepe and Minardil?”

Minardil: Well, when Pepe first came crawling back, I’m sorry, when he approached me about reforming the band, I considered changing the name to “Minardil and the Lousy Backstabbing Wooly Scumbag”, but upon careful consideration, we’ve decided to go with “Minardil and the Bagpiping Llama.”

Pepe: Yah-ma!

Minardil: Whatever. Eat your yams.

DMM: Pepe, was it difficult for you to make the choice to re-pair with Minardil, given your history and his skyrocketing solo career?

Pepe: I suppose it might have been, but I have this new girlfriend. She’s a llama from a Japanese zoo. Her name is Yoko.

DMM: Oh no.

Pepe: No, just Yoko. Anyway, she convinced me that reforming the band would be most harmonious.

DMM: So, tell us about the tour.

Minardil: We’re planning a huge open-air concert. Free, no admission!

DMM: Oh, like Simon and Garfunkel’s concert in Central Park!

Pepe: Sort of, but we’re doing ours on the third level of the Strawberry Square Parking Garage here in Harrisburg.

DMM: Did you say the Third Level? Why not the top?

Minardil: It’s been DONE, man! Ever see U2 in Vegas? We were also planning a tour of shopping malls. . .

Pepe: But Yoko said that would be sooo Tiffany. . .

Minardil: That’s right. YOKO said. What Yoko says goes.

Pepe: You got something against Yoko?

Minardil: Nothing, but she’s not part of the BAND, man!

Pepe: I’ll show you who’s part of the Band!

On that note, Pepe spit in Minardil’s eye and went back to work in the llama pen at the Petting Zoo.

Minadil: He’ll be back. He probably does this twice a day.

So there you have it music fans! Tune up your pipes and tubas, because Pepe and Minardil, whoops, sorry, Minardil and the Bagpiping Llama, are BACK!




Well, after Minardil and Pepe got back together, the band went through some changes. We added Pepe’s girlfriend, Yokollama to the act, and his talentless cousin Stu too. We tried to come up with a new name: I wanted “Minardil and some llamas”. Yokollama and Pepe wanted “Yokollama Mama and the Papas”. Stu wanted us to call ourselves “The Stu-Peds”, a name which everyone hated. We finally decided to call ourselves “Ted”.

Our story continues. . .

This just in from the world of entertainment:

From the Pages of Dromedary Musician Monthly, your source for Llamapalooza updates!

Dateline: Blaine, Perry County, Pennsylvania.

Excitement is running at a fever pitch these days, as the 2002 Llamapalooza Tour officially kicks off in the verdant hills of Central Pennsylvania, Llama Music Capitol of the World! Dromedary Musician Monthly was offered a rare chance to go behind the scenes of this legendary travelling festival to get up close and personal with your favorite artists.

This year's tour includes some of the truly great names of llama music, but no group has generated more excitement around here than the band called, simply, Ted.

We caught up with Minardil, Ted's Lead Tuba player, as he kicked back in his trailer following Ted's smash opening performance of the festival.

DMM: Minardil, Harry Llama here, from Dromedary Musician Monthly, may we have a few words?

Minardil: Certainly, Harry. Come on in. I was just enjoying some funnel cake and deep fried snickers, would you like something?

DMM: No thank you.

Minardil: Then let's get this interview started.

DMM: Right. First, Minardil, let me be perfectly clear for our readers; You are NOT a llama.

Minardil: That's right. I am a human being.

DMM: And yet you perform with an all llama band.

Minardil: Well, we try not to think of ourselves as llamas and non-llamas. We're musicians, you know, and when we're all on stage together, jammin' out; me playing my Tuba, Pepe squeezing his pipes, Yokollama strokin' her sitar, and Stu really bashing the cr&p out of his old tin can; those artificial differences between us, like who has wooly fur and who doesn't, who walks on four legs and who walks on two, just melt away man, and we all become, like, ONE in the Music.

DMM: That's beautiful. But do you have that same relationship with any of the other llama's on the tour? I've heard that there is some tension. . . .

Minardil: It's true. Some of the other llamas are distrustful of me. They call me a Poser, and a Llamawannabee, but you have to let that stuff roll off your back, you know?

DMM: Have you formed friendships with any of the other groups?

Minardil: Well, I did meet the guys from 2LCrew. . .

DMM: You mean the Llama Boy Band?!

Minardil: That's right. They were on stage rehearsing their big dromedary love song. .

DMM: One Hump or Two?

Minardil: That's the one. Say, you must be a big fan. . .

DMM: Well, uh, no, um, my little girl, that's right, my daughter is a HUGE fan. .

Minardil: Anyway, they were on stage going through the choreography to the music, you know, and I whipped out my tenor travel tuba and started playing along, just free-form jamming with them. I gotta tell ya, these guys just freaked out!

DMM: Because you were interrupting them?

Minardil: No, because they're in a Boy Band, they've NEVER SEEN anyone really PLAY an INSTRUMENT before! They were totally blown away!

DMM: So did you talk to them? What's Spyke really like?

Minardil: Spyke?

DMM: You know, the Dangerous One? He's got the black pointy goatee? He is soooo "street". . .

Minardil: I haven't got to know him. He spends most of his free time locked away in his trailer with Raoul, his personal assistant. I spend most of my time with Specs.

DMM: Oh, the Smart One! I just love his glasses, they are sooo intellectual. Do you talk about Art and Politics?

Minardil: Actually, right now we're working on "staying in the lines". He just loves to draw.

DMM: Well, it certainly sounds as if the tour is off to a grand start. We wish you well, and will be checking back from time to time.

Minardil: Thank you, Harry.

DMM: One last thing. . .

Minardil: You want Spyke's autograph?

DMM: Oh could you? Have him make it out to Harry Llama ah 's daughter.

Minardil: Sure. What's her name?

DMM: Whose name?

Minardil: Your daughter? What is her name? For the autograph?

DMM: Her name is, ah, also Harry Llama. Yeah, it's a family name.

Minardil: No prob.

DMM: Thanks. And that's all for now. See ya on the road!

Llama News Network (LNN) NEWSFLASH:

Dateline: Binghamton, NY:

Small Plan carrying famous Llama musicians drops off radar screens!

A single engine Beechcraft carrying three members of the mostly llama musical group "Ted" disappeared from the skies over Binghamton, New York, some time last night. Civil Air Patrol squadrons in the area have launched a massive search and rescue operation.

Weather reports show the sky was clear, and FAA radar traces show the plane closely following its previously filed flight path right up until the moment contact was lost.

On board the missing aircraft were three quarters of the group Ted, Pepe the Llama, Yokollama, and Stu. Ted was in the first week if this years highly anticipated Llamapalooza Tour, a travelling rock festival featuring llama bands and a variety of musical styles. The band had just finished their triumphant opening concert at the huge Blaine Forum, and were on their way to the next venue in Ithaca, New York.

The fourth member of Ted, Lead Tuba Player Minardil, apparently skipped the specially charted flight, electing to remain with the tour bus. We spoke with him concerning the missing aircraft:

Minardil: I've been in contact with our guru, Swami Seamus "Screech" MacNeesh, and he has advised me to seek internal tranquility, prepare to accept the cosmic will, and get stinking drunk.

LNN: Do you have any idea what might have happened?

Minardil: I don't know. The pilot and I shared a few pitchers right before the flight. He seemed okay to me, though he was a little down about his wife running off with a musician and all. . .

Also on the flight were the entire cast of 2LCrew, a dreadfully overproduced Llama Boy Band specializing in sanitized hip-hop choreograhpy matched with syrupy teen love songs for the dromedary crowd (most notably, their recent hits "One Hump or Two?" and "Alpaca You Full of My Love" . Members of 2LCrew were:

Jayson, The Cute One
Nigel, The Not Quite So Cute One.
Spyke, The Dangerous One
Specs, The Smart One
Bob, The Other One.

Stay tuned to LNN for further developments. . .

Llama News Network (LNN) Newsflash:

Dateline, Sarasota Springs, New York.

Members of TED Rescued!!!

All three missing members of the mostly llama musical group Ted were found safe and sound this morning following an exhaustive search by the New York Civil Air Patrol. LNN spoke to CAP Squadron Commander Lt. Buzz Tower about the miraculous rescue.

LNN: Lt. Tower, your group logged hundreds of man-hours searching for the missing aircraft. How did you locate the survivors?

Lt. Tower: Well, they crashed right in the middle of Sarasota Springs. One of the survivors picked up a payphone outside a Quickie Mart and called us.

LNN: And you rushed right over to get them?

Lt. Tower: We stopped for a beer first, but basically, yeah.

LNN: Such heroism.

Following our chat with Lt. Buzz Tower, we obtained the rights to conduct an exclusive interview with the three members of Ted who had survived the ordeal.

LNN: Pepe, tell us when you first suspected something was going wrong with the flight.

Pepe: The flying started getting rough. The tiny plane was tossed. If not for the drunkenness of our stupid flight crew, the airplane never would have been lost.

LNN: Pepe, you, the other members of Ted, and the pilot all survived. But, sadly, all five members of 2LCrew perished. Can you explain this?

Pepe: Well, technically, we all survived the crash. But, after that, we had to make some hard choices. We knew that some of us would have to sacrifice ourselves to save the others. It was a life or death situation, you know? We were starving. We had no idea when, or IF, we would ever be rescued. We were forced to eat 2LCrew just to stay alive.

LNN: But you were only missing for three and a half hours.

Stu: You don't understand, we were REALLY HUNGRY! There had been no meal service on the flight! Just a stupid bag of honey roasted peanuts. It was awful.

LNN: You crashed through the roof of a fully stocked grocery store.

Yokollama: And a good thing too. We landed in an aisle with a huge mint jelly display. Without that, I don't think I would have been able to choke Jayson down.

LNN: So the four of you; the pilot, Pepe, Yokollama, and Stu, ate five fully grown Peruvian Llamas?

Pepe: Well, we were just going to have one apiece, but then Stu went back for seconds.

Stu: It was Bob, the Other One. He was just sitting there, like the last piece of pizza in the box. No one else seemed to want him. I couldn't help myself.

LNN: How was he?

Stu: DEEEE-Liscious.


LNN: So, are you ready for tonite's gig?

Pepe: Count on it, man!

So, there you have it, a great tragedy narrowly avoided.

From the pages of Dromedary Musician Monthly:

September 16, 2002
Dateline: Ithaca, New York

On the Road with Llamapalooza ’02.

If you can imagine being at ground zero when the Fat Man plopped into downtown Hiroshima, then you have some idea of the magnitude of the Bomb that exploded over Ithaca this weekend, ripping this year’s Llamapalooza wide open.

Musically, Saturday’s stop on the annual llama musical fest rocked. Shining particularly bright was the performance of the mostly llama band Ted, whose opening set, featuring the ferocious finger work of lead tuba player Minardil, inspired bagpiping of Pepe, seductive sitar strumming of Yokollama, and nuanced tin-can bashing of Stu, brought the capacity crowd to it’s feet with the opening curtain.

An unexpected addition to Ted is their new chorus of comely backup singers, known as the Teddies for their chosen mode of attire and devotion to Ted, but soon to be a musical force in their own right. The Teddies vocal harmonizing and deft footwork, especially on Ted’s rendition of the theme song to “The Facts of Life”, left mouths hanging open and heads wagging all over the stadium, leaving little doubt as to the secret of their success.

“They were clearly drunk off their butts,” one concert go-er observed with approval.

But this level of excellence on stage is what we have come to expect of Ted.

The Bomb I speak of was set to go off during the last act.

Let me set the stage:

The audience had just endured another seemingly interminable set from Llama Louie and the Wooltones (whose limp playing, insipid lyrics, and non-existent stage presence are enough to drive any reviewer to thoughts of self immolation) when all the lights in the stadium went out.

In the darkness, I strained to catch a glimpse of the activity on stage, but all I could make out was the furious maneuvers of a phalanx of black-clad roadies.

Frustrated by the inaction, the crowd began to get restless.

After what seemed a good ten minutes, but was probably only 9 and a half, tension in the seats was building to the breaking point.

Without warning, dazzling actinic light blazed forth from the Stage as beams from a dozen air-defense search lights stabbed out over the crowd. Flash pots went off, sending clouds of reeking smoke coiling over the stacks of amplifiers, and five shadowy figures wreathed in mist strutted onto the stage as the opening riff of “One Hump or Two” blasted out into the night with such force that several people in the front rows were knocked to the ground.

That’s right music fans, it was 2Lcrew, back from beyond and better than ever. We sat in stunned silence as the five members of the formerly devoured llama boy band, Jayson, the Cute One, Nigel, the Not Quite So Cute One, Spyke, the Dangerous One, Spec’s, the Smart One, and Bob, the Other One, warbled and gyrated through their catalog of hits.

Only when the last notes of their final song had faded into the night did the crowd react. Younger members of the crowd screamed with girlish delight, while older fans were left scratching their heads wondering out loud, “who are these guys again?”

I grabbed my reporter’s notebook and press pass and scooted backstage, where I scooped the competition with the first, back from the dead interview with the boys from 2Lcrew.

DMM: Boys, what a shock tonight has been. You were, well, to coin a phrase, Llama-poop, but here you are. Please, explain what happened.

JAYSON: Well, our producers wanted to try out a new image for the band.

NIGEL: We’re going with an edgier, more “in your face” style. The canniballamalism thing was just a publicity stunt for our new album.

SPEC’s: It’s called ”Eat Me”. It is going to be very “rad”.

DMM: I’m sure. So Ted never ate you at all?

SPYKE: Well, Yokollama tried to nibble on Jayson once, but I think that was all in good fun.

DMM: So Ted has been a part of this publicity stunt all along?

NIGEL: In a way. They just don’t know it.

DMM: I don’t understand.

JAYSON: Ted DID eat five llamas, just not us.

NIGEL: They were contestants in a Llama extreme reality game show, “Canniballama Island”, airing this autumn on FOX.

SPYKE: Five llamas compete to see who can outlive being eaten by the Ravenous Ted. The last llama standing wins 1 million Peruvian Pesos.

DMM: How much is that in American dollars?

SPEC’s: ‘Bout a buck and a half, I think.

DMM: But Ted ate all five contestants.

JAYSON: No one figured that Stu would go back for seconds.

SPYKE: Someone probably should have told Ted the rules.

NIGEL: That’s my bad. I meant to fill the guys in, but you know, one thing lead to another. . .

DMM: Well, now that you’re back, what are your plans?

JAYSON: I’m going to do some serious partying. I hear the Teddies have this magical cooler. . .

NIGEL: I hear that.

SPYKE: Well, Raoul and I will be going back to our cottage on Fire Island for a week or so to look after our corgis. But after that. . .

DMM: What?

SPYKE: I mean, yo yo, I’m takin’ some time to chill in my hood wit da peeps, ya know?

DMM: Better. You Spec’s?

SPEC’s: I’ve been reading this incredible book. A real classic. I’m going to spend some time finishing it.

DMM: War and Peace? The Lord of the Rings?

SPEC’s: No. “Where’s Waldo.” That is one tricky guy, let me tell ya. But I’ll find him yet.

DMM: And what about Bob?

BOB: I’m going up to Lake Winnepesaukee to learn how to sail.

DMM: Good for you, Bob.

Reaction from Ted was muted skepticism mixed with outrage.

YOKOLLAMA: You mean I ate some NOBODY?

STU: Well, all I can say is that guy I ate sure TASTED like Bob.

PEPE: Does this mean we get a million Peruvian Pesos?

And that’s all for now from Llamapalooza ’02. More updates from the road to follow!

Oh Am, it's OK we all become our mother at some time or another.

I channeled my mom when one day I looked back at Her Grace who was being loud and rowdy in the back seat of the car and said "Erin, be quiet! People acting like that cause accidents you know."

Nearly had to pull over and smack myself upside the head.... :roll:

Looking back at my mother, I have to admit, she was prolly the person most responsible for my sarcasm. One day, the inevitable came out of her mouth when I was crying over something..."Do you want me to give you something to cry about"...I said.."No, I already am crying, can you give me something to laugh about"...My father about died laughing, my mother (an ex nun) just cracked my knuckles anyway.

Holy Heaps!! We all channel our mothers? Oh brother, what ever are we going to do? *snicker* At least I haven't said "Turn that music down" or "Because I said so" yet. (Somehow, I think it's only a matter of time) However, she keeps showing up more and more in odd places.

Does anyone else do the "mother hand slap"? You know, when you are driving and you slap your hand over the passanger seat to protect a kid that isn't even there? I'm guilty of trying to use the phantom brake my mother wanted when she was teaching me to drive. When I'm riding with someone, there will be times I wind up trying to go for the "phantom brake" on the passenger side.

::lays out a path of chocolate to get Sarah out of the corner::

yup, I do it... the hand guarding thing. Mostly to keep my purse from dumping out all over the floorboards. I don't do the side-seat brake... or the sharp inhaling of breath when something isn't quite as safe as my mother'd like it to be. THAT used to throw me off so much more than the phantom brake.

On the "I am my mother' vein, I think I've shared this with all y'all before, but I knew I was becoming my mother when... I was with my young neice (the now eldest one.. she was 4 or 5 at the time) at the mall and she was eating a cookie. Spotted some chocolate chip smear on her cheek and before I could think, I licked my thumb and started rubbing at the smudge. Next thing I remember, I can hear this faint screaming noise as dozens of people stop and look around... Security hated me that day. I'm still not 100% clear on just how loudly I screeched or if I fainted or just temporarily left my body...

mmm chocolate :D Yes, I guess the rum is of indeterminate proof and that's why they can't import it. I'm not sure I would have bought the regular rum if the lady in the store hadn't gotten me drunk. Everytime my friends walked away from me she was giving me more shots! She must have known I had the money.

You had better warn her, that particular cures has some weight behind it. My mom alway would tell my sister "Some day you are going to have a kid just like you. Hope they will be twins!"

My mother said the same things... only she added a bit to the curse... "I hope you get a kid just like you, only SIX times worse."

I think it was my fear of that curse that ultimately kept me from having kids. I know my sister's all got kids 6 times worse than they ever were. I tell my mother that it is a good thing they don't burn witches at the stake any more... Amazingly she just laughs at that reference to witchcraft.

nothing major, clutch quit on me halfway home from lancaster, (both the master cylinder AND the slave cylinder died), had three of the mini's in the car with me. so had to speed-shift and otherwise force the car into the gears the rest of the way home. was really fun when the idiot in front of us stopped for no reason, in the middle of the road. but, i did what i promised the boys i would do. I got us home safely, albeit with much cursing involved.

or Dove Dark Chocolates. One of my more 'happy' memories of this year's season was one of the Cast members dropping by the Hostel while the Shire was still getting moving (as in like 10 mins after Cannon) and I'd teased him before about what I'd have to do to get the sparklies he wears... I think he was the Royal Tax Collector or something such... and right there in front of Hostel, Shire and patrons, unwrapped a Dove Dark and proceeded to hold it out for me. Of course as I leaned in, he kept pulling it back. ~L~ Talk about leading a wench to ruin.

I could handle well either bits of Toblerone or Dove Dark Chocolates... or dipped strawberries... or truffles...

*Sigh* now I have to wait until September to see Artos shoot his longbow. Wait a minute, I don't think they'll allow your longbow at NYRF, especially if it's cocked and ready to shoot. What is it - about 7 feet long? :twisted:

Artos O'Dalriada
06-08-2005, 02:56 PM

I love watching a male archer shoot - they way his strong arms pull back the resisting string, the way he eyes and aims the target with total concentration, then a moment of hesitation as he catches his breath to finally let go. He releases and slowly brings down his longbow as he continues to watch his target. The target has been struck.

::tosses shovel away::

Rose staggers in and collaspes on couch (er move over a wee bit Magaret). I had a really long and bad day. The preop appointments went well. However, my work day didn't go so well. Two car chases , one of which is a skip and one psycho woman I had to serve court papers to.Took me two hours to locate her and serve her. And then she talked mean to me (like it is my fault she is being taken to court), then she got really nasty. lol. My being sweetness and light probably didn't help matters much. The upside is, I shoudl be getting a bonus for locating her. And I even got her cell phone number. (Never underestimate a wench) But I am tired and really need some chocolate.

They payed a number of different tunes. Such as Cotton Eye Joe, The Eyes of Texas, Oh Sussana, The Aggie Fight Song, Yellow Rose of Texas, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Addams Family Theme Song, The Star Wars Theme song, The Marine Corp Hymn. Among many others. All on Bagpipe & drums. :bow:
When I heard the Marine Corp Hymn I just couldn't help but think of Kilt Clad Marines, Drums and bag pipes........ :faint:

The Scotsman
- Mike Cross (Vic-Ray Publishing)

Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar one evening fair
and one could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share.
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
and he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

Ring di-didle-idle-a-di-oh,
Ring di-diddly-i-oh,
ah he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

About that time 2 young and lovely girls just happened by,
and one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye,
"See yon sleeping Scotsman, so strong and handsome built,
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt."

Ring di-didle-idle-a-di-oh,
Ring di-diddly-i-oh,
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt.

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be,
lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see,
and there behold for them to view, beneath his scottish skirt
was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth.

Ring di-didle-idle-a-di-oh,
Ring di-diddly-i-oh,
was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth.

They marveled for a moment then one said, "We must be gone,
let's leave a present for our friend before we move along."
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow
around the bonny star that Scot's kilt did lift and show.

Ring di-didle-idle-a-di-oh,
Ring di-diddly-i-oh,
around the bonny star that Scot's kilt did lift and show.

Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled t'words a tree,
behind the bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees,
and in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes,
"Oh lad I don't know where you've been but I see you won first prize."

Ring di-didle-idle-a-di-oh,
Ring di-diddly-i-oh,
Oh lad I don't know where you've been but I see you won first prize.

(I wasnt trieng to show off I just figured sence I had it on the computer I'd save him some time if he had to look for it... :oops: )

here's another GREAT scotsman's song

This is by the now defunct Wenches 'a Whailing group out of Bristol...

Angis and his kilt

Now Angis was a happy lad, for soon he would be wed,
He found a brisk and bonnie lass, to take him to his bed
But happier still, his mother was, that he had found a wife
For truth-be-told, she often feared to be stuck with him for life.

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
For truth-be-told, she often feared to be stuck with him for life.

Now in honor the grand affair, this wedding day would be
She set about to weave a kilt, the finest ever seen.
The night before the wedding, the kilt was finely done
She called young Angis over, and she tried it on her son.

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
She called young Angis over, and she tried it on her son.

She wound the kilt about him, and she wound, and wound, and wound
But when she’d finished winding, twas still eight yards too long
“Oh never fear me bonnie boy, well simply cut it off,
And to your blushing bride we will give the extra cloth!”

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
“And to you blushing bride we will give the extra cloth!”

Now Angis was so pleased you know his heart, it swelled with pride.
He felt that he must rush right out, and show off for his bride.
Twas raining so he grabbed a cloak, to shield him on the moor.
But in his haste to be away, his kilt slammed in the door.

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
But in his haste to be away, his kilt slammed in the door.

Now Angis was in such a rush, to show off for his bride.
He never really noticed that he left his kilt behind.
He knocked upon her door, cried “let me in I prey,
I’ve something that you’ve got to see before our wedding day!”

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
“I’ve something that you’ve got to see before our wedding day!”

Well Brighid lets him in you know, but says “Ye cannot stay,
For I have to have me beauty sleep before our wedding day.”
“Till only be a moment love, but it’s so grand my dear.
You really have to see what I’m a hidin under here!”

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
“You really have to see what I’m a hidin under here!”

Well when the cloak was throw aside and Angis stood quite bare,
We must admit she was impressed and tried hard not to stare.
“Oh love I’ll nar see finer tho far, and far I roam.”
“Why lass” he cried “That’s Nothing! I’ve got eight more yards at home!”

Oh it a fine thing, a bonnie thing, the grandest ever seen
“Why lass” he cried “That’s Nothing! I’ve got eight more yards at home!”

Ciani, if you like Canolis and Lattes, wait until you have a piece of my Baklava. I've been told that it's so very close to that made fresh in the Middle East.

*holds up plate* Please, m'Lady, might I try your lovely Baklava... tis been 4 long years since my last chance to taste such heaven. Please, m'Lady Sarah :pweeease:

a Mojito is a lovely drink brought over from Cuba. Take fresh mint leaves, sugar and a smadge of water in the bottom of a tall glass. crush the mint and sugar into the water then add ice to the top of the glass. Pour water and white rum over the ice, garnish with a sprig of mint.

Think of it as the Cuban version of a Mint Julep.

Take more of the Canolis, they're mini sized and dipped in chocolate.

As for the Baklava, I would say I'd bring some to NYRF this fall, but I can't guarantee it's safety in going through security here in DFW. :lol: or that it'll last through the bachelorette party we've got planned.

A cross post of general sillines, as requested by Maggie.

This is Artie's fault, by the way. I think I should mention that here as well.

Apologies to whoever wrote the original.

(to the tune of 'The Scotsman')

A soldier in dress blues left a bar one evening fair…
And one could tell by how he walked, he’d drunk far more than his share
A tequila shot in one hand, he couldn’t walk too straight
So he wandered about the market square, his buddies for to wait.

Ring ding diddle-iddle hi de OH…ring ding diddle AYE OH…
He wandered about the market square, his buddies for to wait.

About that time three slightly tipsy Wenches happened by
And each smiled to the others, a mad twinkle in their eye.
They asked to see his fine legs, and his bottom, tight and round.
And in a flash, the soldier’s slacks were fallin to the ground.

Ring ding diddle-iddle hi de OH…ring ding diddle AYE OH…
And in a flash, the soldier’s slacks were fallin to the ground.

They marveled for a moment at the sight he did present.
For when the gals appraised him, he’d pitched quite a tent.
But before he could impress them with his winning ways and flair
He found himself passed out cold in a nearby café chair.

Ring ding diddle-iddle hi de OH…ring ding diddle AYE OH…
He found himself passed out cold in a nearby café chair.

The wenches, disappointed, tried and tried to wake the lad.
They wanted to explain to him fun he might have had.
So each lass took out her lipstick, and painted supple lips
And left the soldier a case of pocks from his bottom to his tips.

Ring ding diddle-iddle hi de OH…ring ding diddle AYE OH…
They left him with a case of Pox from his bottom to his tips.

The soldier woke at dawns first light to have himself a piss
Covered with lipstick marks, he saw what fun he must have missed.
He could not recall what must have been a fantasy come true.
“Oh, lad, I don’t know what ya did, but I wish I’d done it too!”

Ring ding diddle-iddle hi de OH…ring ding diddle AYE OH…
“Oh, lad, I don’t know what ya did, but I wish I’d done it too!”

whee! BNL is the best.. I saw them twice in concert many years ago when no one knew who they were :D

A bread and cheese friend, huh?
I have many bread friends.. a few cheese friends.. but it is a rare and seldom gift that the two combine into that most satisfying of meals and relationships..

waaaah.. I'm high on frappucino again. It's the heat I swear!

No I haven't had the opportunity to do anything at MIRF that wasn't strictly of the traveller activity. I will have to participate this year! I haven't been to MIRF since.. 1997 I think. Somewhere around then.

Now how did that shovel appear in my hands?

We're all looking forward to this weekend! Don't worry, the whipped cream cans have been stocked up and we're surveying the next restaurant to be "victim".. err ah... "target"... hmmm nope **Graced** with our presence... (Wonder how long we'll last before they toss us out too!)

Fiona has christened a new "Toy"... the "Wench Fountain" will be there this weekend... as well as the Kittie-o-Nine flogger... has genuine beaver tips that are devilishly deceptive. Should be a good closing weekend to EMMF.

More chocolate is ALWAYS better. Can't ever go wrong with chocolate, and even more chocolate.

I'm thinking that if I get down to PARF in October I'm going to drive over to Hershey and stock up before I head home. With any luck I won't get pulled over for driving under the influence and I'll actually make it home with some of the stock.

Hmmm, I wonder if I can get more chocolate in the back of my 91 blazer with the seat up or down?

Do you, personally, have to hunt for a new place to live Mor or is it EMMF?

How's it going BTW, My Lady Queen?

New place to live.. M'Lady... The first week of May.. our landlady calls and asks.. "do you still want to buy the house?" (now keep in mind, we've been saying for 6 months there's major problems here).. I said.. well first of all - after living in Scranton for 6 months.. ummm.. *dont think I want to settle in Scranton*.. and second.. with all the problems here.. if I by some chance I did get approved for say a VA loan.. they would want all these matters corrected. To which she says.. "well, I have a contractor ready to fix the house.. but I need you out by the end of the month (May)". Needless to say - although diligently seeking, nothing has been found yet.

Its been a very rough several weeks.. as in addition to that.. my truck was broken into (my Cobra CB and CD player stolen) and not 2 weeks later.. I was "hit" by a woman who all of a sudden decided to start driving her car in reverse. (so far.. $1500.00 in damage to my truck and 3 weeks of therapy on that accident and counting).

My sanity.. has honestly been EMMF.. as its allowed me to "leave mundania" for the past few weekends :twisted:

:grouphug: Ya know, escaping into a fantasy land - whatever form it takes - doesn't solve any RL problems. However, being able to take a break from RL makes dealing with it much easier.

The only 'Homes For Sale' books I have in my grubby little paws right now are for the Pittsburgh area, so I can't help there. But I can send up all the good thoughts and prayers that I got, be here to give you a big hug and an 'Atta girl' when you need it, and be available to be a sounding board if ya just want to bitch, piss and moan.

Yes, a small strike-team of Rogues hit three targets EMMF's Closing Sunday. Two Wenches (Morghan, the Pirate Queen and Lady Abigail Greywolf) and the Faire Directress, Janene.

(Having been targetted, and now knowing what is involved, Janene has "blessed" the idea of further Rogueings and other guild activities next year... :twisted: )

Other than a low turnout.. the weekend was a blast! (Wouldn't you say, Lady Artemesia? :wink: )

I was surrounded by booty.. a Pyrate Queen's dream :twisted:


Time to start conspiring for next year! 8) (and for PARF & NYRF..and Pennsic..)

It was an absolutely awesome event.. whether it was the Wench Walk (my first).. playing with the kids (absolutely loved that).. being Rogued (OMG words can't describe) or singing chantey's with the merchants (who were really fun to play with) .. those were the best (non fencing) 3 weekends I've spent .. in a long time.

Absolutely Stupendously Wonderful! THANK YOU.. to everyone who came out and helped make EMMF awesome!

Other than a low turnout.. the weekend was a blast! (Wouldn't you say, Lady Artemesia? :wink: )
I primped my hair in the Sheriff's reflective codpiece - though he wouldn't eat my strawberry! :twisted:

I was so nice meeting you - Po, Morghan, Fiona, Taranach :grouphug:
I just wished I could've stayed longer, but my friend wasn't doing too good in that heat (her hands actually felt hot after an hour of air conditioning in the car!) I will make it for an entire day next year.

I got my devil horns at EMMF! Now to find a little halo so I can hang it over one of the horns. :shock:
(I'll practice, but doubt I can get it centered properly Bonnie, it tends to go a little to the left..)
And I've GOT to get me a beaver fur cat-o-nine tails - Hoot!

PS to Sarah: French works :aok:

Ahhhh, being Rogued, now you know why I always walk around with a shite-eatin' grin on me face...

I cannot even express how much fun I had nor say how grateful I am to work with such a talented bunch o' people. The vendors as well as the cast I played with rocked.

Ladies, if any of thee ever have the chance to "work the other side of the footlights," do so. It's something you've gotta experience!

:lol: Hey a wee bit of Makin's Clay applied to the halo and allowed to dry... or make the whole thing out of FIMO or Makin's Clay and leave holes for the horn tips....


And I've GOT to get me a beaver fur cat-o-nine tails - Hoot!:

THAT... could be arranged... :twisted:

First off, glad to see you here Taranach :D . Hope all has worked in your favor during your job troubles.

hmmm,..... Texas?.... road trip?......... now THAT'S something to think about. :D

BTW, if anyone can figure out how to PERMANENTLY get rid of Bronchitis, please let me know. I'm going thru it again and to be quite blunt, "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired".

(whaddya think.. shameless enough? :rofl:)

Seriously, come on down to Scarby next year! There's a hotel just down the road that's quite nice from what I hear. I'd offer a guest bed at my house, but it's a 30-45 minute drive for me and the hotel's nicer to deal with first thing in the morning! :lol:

Some people have chronic bronchitis. It's usually due to things like smoking, being around too much pollution, allergies, or an infection that never fully heals. I guess the first thing to do is try to figure out what's causing the relapses. Then you'll have an idea on how to make it go away. I'm pretty sure they have pharmaceutical support for healing from a non-infection kind of bronchitis, but I think it's steroids. I used to live with someone who had it chronic, so I'm only remembering part of the info, but you could most likely find more via google.

They used sulfa drugs to kick it's butt when I had chronic Bronchitis and pneumonia 4 times in 7 months. They also did allergy tests. Found out I was allergic to all sorts of nasties... mold, mildew, pollen, grass, cats, dogs, dust mites, perfumes... and more.

I worked in a warehouse and was dealing with the dust, exhaust from the forklifts, bat guano and pigeons...

The sulfa drugs killed my tastebuds for a while. Toothpaste tasted like I had a mouthful of sh*t, but they and the allergy shots and inhalers got me thru that time. My lungs were so bad that I had asthma problems too. The allergies cause post-nasal drip, which irritates the back of the throat leaving you open for every little bug to get a foothold. At least that was my problem.

Good Luck with getting this cleared up. Has your doc said anything about allergies?

And what was the home improvement project today?

'Mornin' All!! Gonna be another hot one out there today! Stay hydrated!

Sets out the b'fast cart with danishes coffee, tea, refills the 5 gal jug with water and makes sure there's ice in the cooler for our bodice chillers

Sounds familiar, doesn't it, Sher, uh I mean, Po?

Lady Sarah
06-15-2005, 08:23 AM
Good Morning!

Yah, no kidding Fiona - it's supposed to get to 98 here with, Pollution Level Red <insert Darth Vader breathing here>

I'm glad I work in an office, arrive early enough to get parking under the building (where it's a decent 10-15 degrees cooler than the detached parking) and go home after the majority of the heat's dissipated.

ambles to the ice chest to fill her chiller Ahhhh yes... love that feeling.

Good Morning Everyone!!!

Hopefully they are telling the truth here and it isn't supposed to go higher than 80. Last night they said that out of the last 7 days, 5 were over 90. I really think it was more days than just 5.

It's supposed to be mid-70s by Friday. The cat is ready to do a happy dance.

Bodice chillers? We have bodice chillers? Oh yes, life is good!!!

...and Quoth Lady Fiona... the Henchwench Supreme
Sounds familiar, doesn't it, Sher, uh I mean, Po?

All Too familiar, M'dear.... Remind me to re-stock the cooler before Sat.- the Rapiermaniacs (plus Baron Rob and assorted others) are travelling to an SCA event in Binghampton to fence all day... No feast. No court.... just fun : "Arrive in time to open the list-field, fence till ya drop, smile till yer cheeks hurt.. then go the smeg home!" :lol:

(and this event, "Axes and Ales" includes a brewing competition.... Mmmm... Must remember to bring more Mead! -and marshmallows! :twisted: ...and the new feast-bow!:wink: )

[Can *you* say dueling Mead-dipped-marshmallows at 20 paces? ]

...and *Yes* -you'd better have a few bodice chillers around! Sometimes I think that's the only way the fairer half of the EMMF Steel-Rose cast survived....

Sell the books, sell the books!

Oh! It's finally cooled off here since the massive thunderstorm yesterday afternoon! It's very nice. Except for me going to home to a huge pudding under my bed from the windows being open. That won't happen today nosiree.

So last night, against my better judgement, a friend talked me into getting ice cream. It was pralines and cream. I thought I was going to die. best icecream ever. yum. I love salted pecans and caramel.

Yes, unless you do what I did on 2nd Weekend which was leave the bodice chiller at home by mistake and fill the top of me dress with ice. By closing, it looked like it had been under an open fire hydrant...

I'm rather happy though, I learned about 12 pages of lines well enough to go off script in only 48 hours!!!
