1. If you could no longer have anything pink, what would be your next favorite color?
wow, um, red? no green? (In Monty Python, I'd totally be tossed into the canyon.) but I look faboo in blue... and love the shades of gray... Probably gray, as odd as that sounds.
2. What do you find most interesting about being in a marriage with the kind of age difference you and Alan have?
Hmm.. interesting. For me it simply is. I've almost always dated/fancied older men, so it wasn't a stretch to begin with. Besides, with my aches sometimes I feel we feel the same age, especially since he seems younger than he is. I find it fascinating how differently we grew up, but sometimes that seems more of a North/South thing. To me it seems like the age difference is the least of our differences, but hopefully I'll always be young and cute to him. :)
3. If you have to choose another career, what would it be?
Well, considering I feel like I stumbled into my current career instead of chose it, I'm not sure. I think a dream job would be working at like Jamestown or Plimoth or some other living history site and teaching without the burden of SOL's and dealing with the same snot-nosed punks each day. But I think I've glorified it since when I volunteer there I can choose what to do and which breaks to take. That and it wouldn't pay to keep me in the life I've become accustomed.
4. What is your least favorite art that you do?
Diplomacy? I hate confrontation. heh.
Actually, I sew for the end product, not for the joy of it.
5. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Well, since I already answered Hawaii to laruse, I guess I have to choose a different place.
I'd like to try living in England sometime.
And lisette_1528 wants to know:
1. How long have you been playing in the SCA?
Let's see, I started in the Winter of 1995, so 13 years? 13 wonderful entertaining drama and friend filled years.
2. What position/A&S/job, etc would you like to try in the future that you haven't done so before?
I would like to try and be Queen once. I'd like to think I'd be good at it, I have an inkling of the hard work that comes with it, I know that there is a lot about the job that I don't know, and am willing to learn, but mainly it would be an honor to serve Atlantia in that fashion.
3. What is your favorite A&S activity, either that you do or that you appreciate, but don't do?
I really appreciate glass work; it awes me every time I see Iseulte's new window, or Leofwynne's little Roman vessels and rings, or Elspet's blown glass drinking vessels. I really honestly can't choose between my various fiber arts which one is my favorite.
4. What is your heraldry and why did you choose it?
My first set of arms involved foxes and thistles, and was red, white and green. It was too many lines to draw, and I never used it. My current arms are green and white with fleur de lys and a single red rose in the center. I chose it after working with Jaella on a device for Alan, and I really liked his layout, so decided to usurp it and make it my own. I love red roses, even though I kill flowering plants without Alan's help. I also love irises, and the fleur de lys is such an elegant abstraction of irises. And I love the simplicity and varieties of the design.
5. What is your favorite memory, SCA or otherwise?
Wow, I don't know that I could choose just one. Some of my favorite class of memories is being part of surprising friends for their various peerage vigils/ceremonies. For Bera's laureling, I helped set stuff up but stayed out of her view until she was brought to the vigil site. For Theo's pelican, the fluffy ponytail story is an amazing tale from Atlantia's history. Padraigin's vigil and the underwear shuffle. Alan's and his wubbie banner. Roland's freezing vigils and stealing his sword, shield and helmet for his knighthood writ. Emma's choking on curry and the unlit walk through rough territory to her vigil site. Isobel's and Thjora's pelican ceremonies and how to make them special for a second peerage... So many fun memories in that category.
For a non-SCA memory, I really had so much fun on the driving rain sail with Alan from Baltimore to Kent Island, while other friends stayed below decks fighting seasickness.
