I need to get a new buckle made for a knight's belt. I would like it to at least look like it belongs in the same era as the Duke Torgul pouch that will be hanging from the belt. I would really like it, if at all possible to have a eagle on it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to Antirian craftsmen that I could approach about commissioning something? I had looked at the stuff available on the web, including the place that bought all of Torgul's plates, but I would like something more of a personal connection, considering who the belt is for......

My other thought is to have two made, one for a fighting belt and one for a "Dress Belt" but I would still like them both to be more personalized......

Anyone know of any boy appropriate garb floating around out there that we could use until my to-do pile shrinks? Bean is wearing approximately 12-16 month stuff. I am hoping I can at least churn out a tunic for him before Aquaterra's Good Yule.

Speaking of Yule, who out there is going?

My Thanks

Can someone please send me His Grace's contact info? Or pass along that I would like to get in touch with him?

So this pic was posted on sca_garb. I have shamelessly swiped it to ask a question. Would this idea fall into the same category as Skapti's coat that Mistress Ariel did such a wonderful job on? I wish I had a pic of it.... Really kinda cool looking, but not documentable? I think the Celt in me finds the embellishment irresistable.......

I am Done!

So I got my package a couple of days ago, and now I have a cozy wool hat I have been wearing....but I don't have a clue as to who sent it to me! I don't know if I missed the tag or what, but if you are someone on my friends list, thank you! It was postmarked Salem...........

This is from Skeggi and Skapti's Squire Mei.

Anyway, I break the silence because I am in a little trouble: I have very foolishly left a final project for a psych class for the very last minute and desperately need participants! I was wondering if you would be willing to help me? The psych study is about lying and one's ability to detect lies and involves watching some videos and trying to figure out when they are lying. It should take less than a half hour. If you would like to take it / encourage/blackmail anyone you know to take it, it would be really helpful!! If you are busy though, no worries.

If anyone can help, please do. If anyone wants to repost in their journal with a wider audience, yes please!

What Fantasy Archetype Are you?

The Pillar-of-Strength Love Interest
You are the Pillar-of-Strength Love Interest! You're like Arwen (Lord of The Rings), Guinevere (Arthurian Legend), Princess Leia (Star Wars), Door (Neverwhere), Ginny/Hermione (Harry Potter), and Kahlan Amnell (Wizard's First Rule). You are the protagonist's love interest and you almost invariably love him too. You are strong, resiliant, caring, loving, loyal and virtuous - but you often have to make hard decisions between love and the Right Thing. You and The Mentor usually go way back, and keep your eye out for betrayal of your love from The Traitor. Also, keep guard, you are the favorite hostage of The Totally Wicked Villain.

My mom finally called me and made a Christmas request. She put my grandmother's Christmas quilt on her bed and would really like some pillow cases to go with it. So at lunch I went all over Bellevue Square and found....nothing. I plan to go to Linens and Things and Bed, Bath and Beyond tonight. If I don't find anything I will pick up some plain white ones and then head to JoAnn Fabrics and buy some fabric to trim them with. Shouldn't take long to make something. I will probably spend way more time in traffic than anything else.

I was just looking forward to not having anything to do tomorrow, as I might not make it out of bed. Yesterday was my first session with a personal trainer. My abs, legs and glutes woke me up this morning demanding to know what the hell I was thinking to torture them like that. I just keep telling them Ursalmas is coming. My upper body strength is doing pretty well. My endurance is crap and cardio is a top priority.

Mostly Calvin

You are 70% Calvin and 30% Hobbes

Your inner Calvin often prevails, but, as in the image below, you have a significant Hobbesian component. I'm going to try to stretch the visual metaphor here: you have a good head on your shoulders, but when you don't use it, your crazy body gets you in trouble? Does that work? Odds are you're impulsive and imaginative, but it's possible you've collected just enough wisdom to hold your most anti-social urges in check. Most of the time. It's a precarious balance, like a boy on one foot with a tiger head.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

The crane that collapsed in Bellevue last night is right across the street from us... The building in the right side of the frame is the one I work in. After looking down from our lobby, it is kind of creepy to look out a different side of the building and see two more cranes right next to us.
