I felt really odd last week, like lethargic and shit. I kept nodding off deeply during the day and having really restless sleep at night. Even Angie noted that I wasn't myself. No idea what is going on, but I don't like it. I've also been strangely dehydrated, drinking tons of water and my mouth and throat still feel dry. Saw my shrink, everything is okay mentally it seems, I see my regular doc in a couple of weeks, so maybe we can get to the bottom of this.

Oh, we went to brunch at The Mint on Sunday. The theme this month was Oktoberfest, since October's theme is clearly going to be Halloween. I had some of the best schnitzel I have had outside Germany, put together with eggs and potatoes for an interesting (and huge) Benedict. Angie had a wurst that looked delicious. And we both had drinks and dessert. ^__^ So a nice end to the week.

Last week was even more summerlike than the previous week. We got up to 90F on the weekend! RIDICULOUS. I wonder if this is what is making me feel so lethargic. Anyway, this week is going to start out hot then finallly cool down into somethimg more fall-like THANKFULLY by Friday. I CANNOT WAIT.

I have to sew a new dress and pouch bag thing for Coronation in a couple weeks, and practice my Pictish face makeup. XD And of course work on getting my mojo back. I hate when it is too bloody miserable to be creative.

So Saturday Mike and I drove allllll the way out to Middle Island NY for the SCA event St Andrews -- more precisely, A Funny Thing Happened to St Andrew on the Way to the Forum, An Investiture. It was called that because the Barony of An Dubhagheinn was investing a new Baron and Baroness, and the Baron's persona is late Roman. The main reason we were going, though, was to see the elevation of our friend Vettorio, mka Eric, into the Order of the Laurel, which is the SCA's highest arts award. He's a scribe who does exquisite work, and well deserved being made a Laurel.

ANYWAY. We got there in time for morning court, when Eric was going to be put on vigil, a day-long period of contemplation and receiving well-wishers and advice-givers. It was very entertaining -- the first snatch-and-grab summons to court I have seen in a long time. Kudos to His Majesty Ioannes for a lovely bit of shtick! He strolled through the audience with a fan (because it was really quite warm and muggy in the hall) until he came up behind Eric. He pretended to talk to someone else, then clapped Eric hard on the back and said "You're coming with me." Classic! And Eric was suitably shocked and surprised.

After court we went over to where Eric's vigil was being held and nibbled on the tasty spread made by his wife Lisa (how he had no clue of anything going on with all that food being prepared, I have no idea) and waited to speak with him. We chatted about persona (I'm going to send some Pictish art refs his way for a scroll) and about apprentices and the relationship between Laurel and apprentice. I think he got something out of it, despite being recently an apprentice himself. ^__^

Mike wandered around talking to people he doesn't get to see very often, and I stayed at Eric's vigil cause it was too warm and muggy to do much else. We left just before evening court, thus missing Eric's actual elevation; it was getting too miserable weather wise and we had a long drive home and were just tired and out of spoons. It was a good event though, and I was happy to see a deserving soul given the recognition he deserves!

Oh! Before we hit the event we went to Wertheim National Refuge in Mastic so Mike could collect the National Parks stamps. Then we went to Fire Island National Seashore and got more stamps, and the most adorable plushie ever for his niece: a plush horseshoe crab! Finally we hit the William Floyd Mansion after Google led us partly astray. (I swear, Google Maps kept sending us on backroads and cowpaths to get from one place to the next all bloody day.)

WeatherDork:
Currently at Bethlehem, PA at 9.59am: Overcast and foggy
Temp: 68F (feels like 68F)
Humidity: 87% (dewpoint 60F)
Pressure: 29.87"
Winds: NE 5mph
Forecast: AM fog/PM clouds, high 78F, low 64F

Summer seems to have come back this past week, no doubt due to the tropical weather elsewhere in the country. Temps were up close to 80 and the humidity was very high. Bleh. This week promises more of the same. BLEH.

Tuesday I see my VA shrink, but that's the only thing planned. Gonna try to get some scribalry accomplished -- I have not been feeling it for some reason, but now I am inspired. ^__^
