We got a bottle of mead! And a drinking-horn, which is as purty as the boys we were stalking with our camera all day!
Yup, we had a great day at Spectaculum
(a medieval festival in Germany) yesterday. Now we really, really want to go to the next place that is close to us as well, or at least I do. ;p
And for those who like stuff like that (ren fairs, medieval festivals, etc.) and are either in Germany or might be going there at some point between April and September/October, here's a link:http://www.spectaculum.de/(Sadly all in German.)
I'm even being a good pimp here and am not mentioning that not everything was all historically correct. (I swear, sometimes I'm amazed that my wife is still willing to go with me to fairs/festivals and also movies like that. Must be a pain to have an archaeology student along. But I guess she knows that I'm enjoying it greatly, despite my random comments. ;p)
I'd post pics from yesterday but my sweetie took much better ones than I did (here
for example; and she'll post more, too). That and I'm too busy (*cough*lazy*cough*) right now to go through all the tons we took (have I mentioned that there were preeeeeeeeeeeeeeetty guys with long hair, swords and skirts? - And my all lesbian wife likes looking at them just as much as I do. ;P), find some acceptable ones that were taken by me and re-size them.
