WHEN DINOS ATTACK!

Aaaaaaaaah!
Three seconds before I had to spear that damned Allosaurus. Click to see my Nebula Awards 2007 photo gallery with more dinos.

Speaking of the past coming to life, this weekend is....

1) The opening of the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, possibly the best one you'll ever experience. This is opening weekend, when they have 2-for-1 admission with 5 containers of non-perishable food (bring five items and it's buy one, get one free at the gate)! Not sure if I'm going this weekend, what with just having recovered from Teh Pig Death and planning to attend 2), but going soon and often. Runs seven weeks:

2) Greaserama, the KC-area Hot Rods and Punk Rods show, with live music and classic movies. I'll be lobbying so that I can show my '66 hot-rod Newport next year (it's a year too new *sigh*). I'm going Saturday with charmed_art and razorart!

What're you up to this weekend?

Honing my aerial fusillade technique against erratically-maneuvering high-speed objects. :-)

Super! Thanks!

Why is that?

I've been to a number of RenFests, and this one has the best variety of acts, super quality across the board, lots of great food, and the absolute best setting, among other attractions! Why, you disagree?

This weekend I'm recovering from Japanese jetlag and the alternating scorn and love of neglected cats.

Cleaning up plaster dust, packing for a trip to San Antonio, and hanging out with friends.

Except for the first part, sounds like fun.

We're torn. Greaserama, opening weekend, the Speedway Muscle Car Show, a barbeque, house chores, and of course, catching up with each other.
and then J's on call Monday, so that's up for fate.

life is full.

Tell me about the Speedway Muscle Car Show....

I was about to scream at you for not wearing your HELMET while standing under the dino, but then I saw the small print. Geez, give me a heart attack, whydoncha?

This weekend: Shawn comes back from a week back East and we do boring House Crap.

This is what happens when one goes about sans helmet. Lucky for me, I was carrying that diamond-tipped, dead-man's-blood-dipped spear.

Hey, you forgot catching up from being apart for a week! That sounds not-boring ;-)

Selling Pulled Pork sandwiches and peach cobbler at the Boy Scout booth at Santa-Cali-Gon. (send my kids to camp next summer--PLEASE!)

Then rummaging for Renfest costume elements.

Oh yay! The Renaissance Festival is open again! (I'm glad we went with you one year)
Fred is coming to visit from work in Iraq next week! I immediately thought about how fun it would be to go to this with him, but don't know if he'll let us go. -pout- Just because I've got this baby-about-to-come-any-moment thing going on. -eye roll-
But......
maybe??
Fred??
pleeeeeeeease!

No way we are going before the baby comes. But maybe after. :) I am such a hard case.

*looks hard at the blue banner in the KCRF photo*

How did I never notice that the lowercase letter a is backwards in both "Renaissance" and "Festival" on that thing?

I just assumed it was one of those "ye olde fonts."

I'm planning on taking a little pirate on Sunday. Which is kinda fitting, considering I was at the Ren Fest three years ago when I got a call telling me to get my ass to the hospital to watch her be born.
