21st Hoggetowne Medieval Faire  
Wow, I was at the very first Hoggetowne when it only lasted from 12 – 5 on a Saturday at the Thomas Center. This year it goes for 6 days and has taken over most of the county fair grounds. There are at least 200 booths selling just about everything. I would have bought a lizard if the cats wouldn't have considered it an appetizer.

I really didn't want to go because I was feeling flat out exhausted but I promised Edward and Katje that I would so I did.

Saw some people I hadn't seen in a looong time. Some for at least 10 years. I spotted one woman, an ex of an ex room mate who I hadn't seen in 15 years. I have to say that time has been kinder to some than to others.

Got a hug from Tolabi, the former Baron and best hugger of An Croissaire, got to hold a lizard, saw the most beautiful horse I've ever seen, and generally had a good time even though I felt three days dead by the time I made it back to my car.

I've got some pictures but they are still in the camera and I don't feel like messing with them today. If they turned out good I'll probably post them late

Hi! I just stumbled across your post on Forthrightly's friend's page and was shocked to see mention of the Hoggetowne faire. I'm from Gainesville myself, and wasn't expecting to run across anyone else from the area. Would you mind if I friend you?

Sure, go right ahead. Were you involved with the SCA by any chance?

Nope. Do I get points for knowing what it is though? ^.^

Of course, I was just wondering if I might know you.
