  •  they went and made a new kingdom (8+ / 0-)

    when I wasn't looking - so there are all new politics to see!  

    If nothing else I can just hang out and I have household brothers in Texas - so there are some events I can road trip to and have people I actually know there.

    Since none of it matters to me (kingdom politics) I can just relax about those bits and concentrate on the things I do like - clothing and food and camping.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      stuff really started downhill in my neighborhood when we went from Principality to Kingdom, sigh. what, 30 years ago? maybe we just all got older. we certainly got more bureaucrats, sigh, and more opportunities for people to collect pointy-hats, mega-sigh. that seemed to be the point of the change for way too many people, 8-(

      glad you have contacts in the area; hope you have successful mini-get-aways, and don't get hurricaned-on at events! we're used to torrential rains here but being blown away so much.

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

      •  it can be fun - as long as it's not MY politics (3+ / 0-)

        because I don't give a rat's ass about which baron is which and what Duke peed in the King's wheaties at such and such event.  Now what the Ilkhan of the Bork Bork did last week - that's an entirely different set of politics that matter.

        :P

        So they can have their little drama and I can just sit back and occasionally kick the hornets nest when I get bored - because I don't bow to chairs and I don't DO kingdom games.  I've been in the SCA off an on over 20 years and haven't even got an AoA.  Not because I didn't do things - I've feastocratted and fought and A and S'ed with the best of them - but because everyone assumes by 20 years in you at least have an AoA.

        So I don't.

        My goal is to become the first stealth Laurel.  Just nothing to Laurel.  That's my goal - and I may make it yet.
