The greatest adventure!

I’m a morning person.  Michaelyn is not.  So I’m bouncing up and down on the bed exclaiming that I love her and that it’s time for adventure.  She is smiling in her thwarted attempts to return to sleep.

She just said, “Are you blogging?”



“Because we’re live-blogging our adventure today!”

“The adventure hasn’t started.”

“It has for me, sweetie.  The sun is up.”

“You suck.”

We have added a new stop on our trek to the Reason Rally!  Tomorrow night we have tickets to Medieval Times in Washington DC!  Christina will be joining us, though we’re not sure if we’ll wind up in the same section.  If we don’t, well, she’ll just have to bathe in humility as our knight triumphs.

I went to Medieval Times for the first time at Dragon*Con last year with my brother Tim and our friend David.

It’s a little pricey, but it’s so worth it.

Ok, time for me and Conan to roust Michaelyn so we can hit the road for the greatest adventure.  :)  I’m now trying to wake her by playing this.  :)

A man whose a dreamer and never takes leave
Who thinks of a world that is make believe
Will never know passion
Will never know pain

PERSONAL: Happy birthday, Hitch.
You guys are wonderful.

    Geez, let the poor girl asleep. Good thing we aren’t dating. I’d break out the middle ages torture gear.

    You’re a morning person?? Good thing that you’re a good writer or I’d never come back

  • ‘Tis Himself, OM

    I’m also a morning person.* I don’t let that interfere with other peoples’ sleep.

    *And a night owl as well, I just don’t need a lot of sleep.

    YES! The greatest adventure song! That made my morning so much better. Also I am envious of you getting to see some for real jousting.

    Are you at least going to let her sleep in the car?

    Ignore all those other hobbit songs: only one deserves to last through the ages!

    Michaelyn, I feel your pain. My beau is also one of those insufferable morning people ><

    There should be an unspoken rule: morning people- you have to coax us night owls out of bed with coffee and breakfast. It's only fair and since you're up already anyway, right?

    It will make us hate you less ^.^

    Of course, they’re in jineta seats, riding palfreys with no barding and just mock chamfrons, when historical knights would’ve had their legs stuck forward in that nasty brida seat, on destriers or at least rounceys, but it’s a cool show nevertheless.
