Turkey Jerky CRACK! [Jul. 25th, 2007|07:17 pm]
Eliane/Jennifer
[Tags|]

Oh my G-D! I can NOT stop eating Trader Joe's Turkey Jerky! It isn't even that tasty or strongly flavored (certainly not spicy). But I've just eaten half a package. And I'm not the type of person to snarf down buckets of food without noticing.

I guess I've found my Pennsic I'm-too-hot-and-tired-to-be-hungry food, huh? Turkey jerky + vanilla Frosted Mini-Wheats = not dying of self-imposed starvation at Pennsic. That, and the pizza and lime Kool-Aid at the bakery place in the Food Court.

Wait, there is a bug at the back of my brain that says that for some reason, there is no more lime Kool-Aid at the bakery place. Can this be true? Or is it from a bad dream from sometime between last Pennsic and this one?

Tasks to be finished before Pennsic:
--Patch tent (done, now I just need to get it folded up and out of my living room)
--Finish painting llamas (24 out of 40)
--Set up classes (one class just needs handouts printed/kits assembled; the other needs complete outlining, bibliography, handouts composed and printed, whiteboard/markers purchased, etc.; this'll probably be Saturday's task)
--Assemble/finish new cotehardie (this is looking doubtful, and I think I have enough garb if I don't, but the Italian gowns don't really fit anymore so I'm hoping I get to this)
--Normal packing/shopping/travel planning tasks

OY.

*sigh*

Her Majesty Northshield requested the following totem animal on the paper-with-an-eyelet-and-silk ribbon Pennsic tokens I offered to make for her:

Llamas.

It was Countess Mary's idea. I am not entirely certain Countess Mary is a good influence. Nice person, friendly, good sense of humor, etc., but I'm sorry, I'm blaming the llamas on her.

Actually I can almost certainly guarantee that Countess Mary is not responsible for the llamas.

Then it would not be fair of me to blame her. Who, prithee, is responsible?

Or is it not to be known?

(In all seriousness, there is nothing to blame anyone for. It's just that the llamas are in my braiiiiin...)

When are you leaving, Eliane? I still need to make up this year's Songsheet. If I send the files to you, can you get them run off? I'll get a check to you for the printing fees, perhaps at Autumn Rose?

Not 'till Saturday Aug. 4, so anytime between now and then is fine to send the files. I am fine with paying for copies, don't worry. Glad to hear you'll be at AR though!

Be sure and include "Shield My Kinsmen"...one year you left if off and people complained.

I'll make sure to keep it on there. I figured everyone knew that one by heart, but it's just proof how much I know....

It's just that there's always newbies, or people who have managed to ignore anything bardic in the NS until they find themselves marching to Opening Ceremonies, or people who have been inactive for years and are just now coming back...

Also it's nice to share the songsheets with "foreigners" at the NS Bardic Circle. I think it gives them warm feelings of being included, to learn our songs and be invited to sing along--esp. our "national anthem". Then they tell their friends how cool those Northshield people are and our fame spreads. It's a PR effort in disguise.

I'm glad you do this every year, it is MOST helpful!

I have 24 done, and promised 40; you have chanted "llama" above 18 times.

Are you saying you want 42 total? Or am I being a little too mathematically-minded?

;)

A favor from the queen in the shape of a llama, even if a certainty, would not be enough inducement to get me to Pennsic.

But.

I would be happy to paint a llama for you sometime. AFTER Pennsic though...!

It's tough while camping because it's hard to keep them fresh. (And I have been known to let the re-stocking of the cooler go as it gets towards the end of the week, just because I am tired and it's hard to find time/energy to fetch ice.)

Be soothed, though: for the last few years a local produce company has run a produce stand at Pennsic. Throughout the day I'll often stop and get a peach, an apple, a little bag of grapes, etc. This is a LOT easier than trying to keep such things from spoiling in my cooler.

Must say though, I've been in the bathroom much of the morning because of overindulging in fresh sweet corn last night. So your advice took me aback a little. Just because of the current circumstances...!

Welcome to my LJ.

I try to minimize candy bars at Pennsic for several reasons, not the least of which is that chocolate gets VERY messy in 95 degree heat...!

I usually do bring a box of granola bars, though. They are quick to snarf down and quell hunger pangs when I'm stuck in the middle of something and can't go have a meal yet (choir practice, for example). One year I brought an assortment of nutrition bars of various sorts, but you know what, they all taste like chemicals to me. Granola bars (if highly overrated nutritionally) at least taste good and have fiber. I'm bringing my Flintstones for additional nutrients this year.
