hmm... the golden gate one starts on my birthday... >_>;; AND its pretty reasonably priced at 10 bucks a pop... ^_^;;

And yay! I'm on your friendslist now! (If I was before I guess I just hadnt noticed... >_>;; )

Haha, you can't keep me away from NCRF. XD!

I'll definitely be hitting Dragon Slayers (assuming I can trade shifts with someone to get Saturday off, or if I change my schedule for the summer), and lots of St Lukes folks will be there. I'd love to hit Central Coast, but it's a long drive, it's really really hot, and it's real close to AX. Golden Gate's a possibility, but it's after school starts, so it depends on how much work I get saddled with. I may hit Kearny Park again, though I'd want to get company on the loooong drive. It was such nice weather.. XD

Ummm speaking of St. Luke's... My dear, dear friend! I have questions to ask you and beg and..yes.

I wonder if I can just join St. Luke's this year, instead of Bibbiana's (I love them, but since I'm always with y'all, anyway...may as well, provided...)? But, I don't have the garb. But I'd be willing to make it, if shown how, etc. Is there a day of sewing? If not can I beg for one? I can come down, bring machine, food, anything needed (seriously). Or..something? *offers candy, beautiful people, and a shopping spree at eLutz*

Come join the yahoo group, and explain who you are in the comments field.. I'm sure they'll let you in. :) We're having a BFA/song meeting 4/23, though Val hasn't specified a time or place yet... ^^;;;; I'll talk at you more about that after I get back from Arizona.. *super stressed right now zomg >___>*

Tulare's a definite, and Northern (NCRF is North Carolina Ren Faire to me.) is one I intend to get up to for a weekend.

Northern California Ren Faire is a deffinate for me...I believe I'm driving different people different weekends again. Dragonslayers is a maybe...I'd need a ride. Golden Gate would be fun, but I'd actually need to acquire/make a costume that covered more of my body than last year if I'm gonna take public trans (would be fun if we could all go togeather...make taking public trans a bit less akward in a group).

a cloak is pretty easy to make. Just 1/2 or 3/4 of a circle of black fabric with ties and a hood...I think I may have a pattern (or if not I know there's one...Simplicity or Butterick or something)

I may actually make it to the one in west newton. It falls shortly after my birthday and is only about 2 1/2 hours drive if we go speed limit and stop twice to let the cat's potty.(not that we'd be bringing the cats but it's right near a campground we used to go to on a regular basis with them.)
