back from KCRF... [Oct. 14th, 2007|07:08 pm]

I made renfest today, after Marz got back from morning worship services and kid classes with Pari. I wore the default pants, boots, T'ger puffy shirt, and did my single garment upgrade of a leather cavalier hat from a vendor I know. While out there I was actually able to recognize a masked queza7 from a few dozen feet away, ran into radcliffe and endured her harassment while I walked her to rougewench and the rest of the brothel, briefly chatted with rowangolightly and 5rings, saw thebruce in passing, watched a polyester and sneaker clad Nasghoul playtron bother magdaleneseal, who was not amused. berkie was too busy at her booth for more than a passing hello (I hate to distract people when there are customers, I'll harass you next year). I got a hug to motherpockets and bountifulpots, saw malvito but he was busy being adored by a child he attempted to terrify. If I forgot anyone, my apologies, I'm tired and my feet hurt. By God, I'm getting better boots before next year.

I took some but not a ton of pictures, I'll post them with a story or two after they are edited.

I was really surprised today that my feet didn't hurt. I have the default Minnetonkas with 1/4" thick soles, but due to muddy-soft ground and watching 4 shows throughout the day I made it home with regular-feeling feet. Part of it's probably just my extra pharmacy hours last week giving me some endurance, but I'm happy.

Not so happy at the prospect of cleaning off said boots, though. I think I'll leave it for tomorrow, dangerous though that may be. I already spent an hour spot-cleaning the dress plus an hour of dry cleaning it (yay Dryel!), so I've done enough for one day. :)

I used to throw my minnetonkas in the washing machine. I don't know whether or not I'd recommend that, because they lasted about three years and died. On the other hand, three years of me wearing a pair of boots is pretty impressive. My brother calls me Shiva, Destroyer of Shoes.

My Minnetonka boots lasted maybe 4-5 seasons before destruction, but i also didn't care if they remained dirty. I'd probably just wipe them off when the mud dried, run a damp cloth over them afterwards. Just clean enough to toss onto the shelf until next year.

Mother Lewd was not amused and almost squashed the annoying playtron...but it was most excellent to see you and chat with you for the short time we had this afternoon!!

Re: LOL...

I was ready to tell the ass that polyester at 4pm doesn't impress anyone, but I don't like to encourage the stupid.

Did you notice he was wearing a skiers face mask over the blackout face covering? That boy has issues.
