An Entire Festival For Ren?

I'm working a Renaissance festival this Saturday. Not in costume, which I'm thankful for. The weather is supposed to be brutally hot, with equally-high humidity. All day, I'm sure I'll be thinking the same thing I do every year: Why are there so many pirates and fairies here? I don't recall them being part of the Renaissance movement. Or water balloons, for that matter. Then again, perhaps Leonardo and Michelangelo chased each other around the Florence Cathedral with them.

When to Babble... and When Not To

We planned on podcasting today, but are still loopy from our trip. We pulled in at two this morning, following a three-hour drive, following a six-hour flight, following a three-hour wait at the Seattle airport, following a two-hour docking and disembarking routine. If this doesn't gain us any sympathy, I'll try this- our plane was struck by lightning during approach to Salt Lake City. I may have lost three years off my life (and ruined a nice pair of undees) as a result.

I don't want to go yet another week without recording, so will put something together for posting tomorrow.

We're Back! Here's an Unrelated Video!

We have returned, and somehow Alaska survived our visit. We will podcast soon, but in the meantime, please enjoy this completely unrelated video:
