Must-see Video

If you haven’t already seen it, go here right now and watch the video footage of Stephen Colbert doing a beatiful job of ripping President Bush a new one.

I had an awesome time at Scarborough Faire. I sold three or four kilts – it got to be a blur pretty quickly. I was on my feet for 12 hours on Saturday. I met a bunch of fascinating people and realized that my personal Freak Flag is more of a cocktail umbrella compared to the kinds of folks who populate Renaissance Fairs. I mean, damn.

We managed to get some converts from other branches of kilt-wearers:
Men in Kilts

    Fairegoers are some of the most delightful and disturbing people you’ll ever meet. Why do you think I spend my summers (and now autumns, too) at faires? 😉

    I’m with cari. Where are the pics of you in your kilt?

    Glad you had a good time, although it sounds exhausting.

    Faires are awesome. I could live there sometimes. Escape from reality! It is a blast to people watch at Ren-Faires. Did you get to see Iris and Rose – hear the bells – fish and chips – – u got ur kilt no?

    Yes. Faire folk are weird folk, that’s what me mum always said. Best to keep your distance, lest they take over your brain and feast on the goo inside. Oh, wait, that’s zombies I be thinkin’ of. Nevermind.
