2. Sometimes I think Homo Sapiens Sapiens is an intelligent species;

I'm wrong because that requires a special kind of stupid.

6. Pfft.

Tell her to work at a Ren Faire for 16 years wearing a bodice (with boning) in 100 heat and 110% humidity for 10 hours a day. THAT'S self torture.

10. Ah...memories.

Except, I'd be holding onto that post and my ex-husband would get way too much satisfaction out of tightening those laces.

Funny thing, for about the first 5 years after I quit working the faire, whenever the heat would become unbearable and the humidity was suffocating...I'd go through bodice withdrawals.

11. I do understand, tho I've never worked at a faire, I've gone in costume.

I still have those clothes & happy memories.


I'd go through bodice withdrawals.

What ? Taking a deep breath and enjoying it ?

12. That's part of it.

I think it was some weird satisfaction that I didn't die. That I had the discipline to put myself, willingly, into a torture device and enjoy it. I had a phenomenal day job that paid extremely well, yet on my days off I would drive almost 2 hours to taunt heat exposure for minimum wage (and free food).

But, yes, when the gates closed...there was a ritualistic freeing of the boobies. You could hear women sighing and breathing everywhere. Later, we'd compare cool tan lines over hard cider.

13. The longest word that can be formed using only the top row of a typewriter keyboard is

"typewriter". Tru fax.
