That being said, the whole renaissance fair thing seems like Dungeons & Dragons for adults. I just don't know about that...
As opposed to...
working out at the gym?
watching college volley ball on Tee Vee?
spending Sunday morning in bed with the NYT Book Review?
4 hours scowering Daily Kos, Huffington, F****isting, You Tube, Face book, Twitter,.....
While I'm too much of a pussy for the Anacronism scene etc., I'm jealous of the wholeactually doing something physical
thing. I never even got so much as a paper cut from D and D. The stuff Gonz (well, and Assault, in a different venue)is doing generally requires cold packs, bandages, and in the best case scenario-adult beverages with ones recent nemisis- to recover from the fun.
And there sure as hell weren't any bystanders-of-the-opposite-gender, dressed in regalia often seen in Heavy Metal magazine, hooting and hollering as I rolled twenty sided dice, and penciled in data on graph paper.
Besides, turkey legs, lamb skewers, pork off the half carcass, and ale, beats Hot Pockets and Mountain Dew ANY day. ;-)
