Zen Monday: #195

I took a lot of fun pictures at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire, so why not? Why not Ren Zen?

"It's a corncob. Yes, I know. Yes. Look, will you hurry up? Your mom's already on her way to the car … well, just be glad we didn't take you to Ye Olde Viking Midden—they used clamshells …"

Oh. My! Ouch!

These events are great fun. Caught a lucky glimpse of one the previous week in UK and the Pasadena-area version looks more elaborate!

Still, I think I'd enjoy one in the UK. More accurate accents!

My spam filter caught this today. I think it's a charming translation. Of what, I'm not exactly sure:

Go straight to jail. Do not collect $50.

Is this a ye olde version of the money pit? ;-)

That t-shirt looks decidedly un-Renaissance. Maybe he's taking out money to get a costume so he doesn't get mocked mercilessly.

Margaret said...

How fun that you went. I'm jealous.

Petrea Burchard said...

That's very Zen of you, Margaret.

I had so much fun at the Faire that I'm going again.

Actually, I had a pre-paid ticket, which I forgot the first time. I still have it so I'm going to use it.

I have more pictures. I'll try not to do Renaissance Faire Daily Photo but I'd like to show you more. The costumes are great, and some of the crafts are gorgeous.

I'd go for the crafts and people watching, don't have a costume...daughter does (we made a nice dress) but it won't fit me

I've been twice and never dressed up. I'm slowly beginning to realize, though, how many of the participants are unpaid--just people who like to dress up, go, and be part of it.
