1. What is your SCA name? (You don't have to write the full name, just your first name if you want.) – Lucia Bellini

2. What is your home kingdom? - Atlantia

3. Have you ever lived in another kingdom? If so, where? – Not when I played SCA. I now know that both Kentucky and the Iowa county where we lived are in the Midrealm, but didn't know it when I lived there.

4. Do you remember your first SCA event? When/what was it? – Pennsic 24

5. Do you have any awards? (You don't have to list them if you don't want) – Yep. A few.

6. Do you list them after your name in communications like e-mail? – Nope. If it's an important/serious email I'll use my title, maybe.

7. Do you have a device? – Got one, but have submitted a revision that is now at Society level review. It will be Sable, a catamount rampant, in chief three bells argent, a bordure Or. (there were martlets (birds) instead of the bells.)

8. Do you use it? On what? – I had a heraldic surcoat but it will be inaccurate (soon, I hope.) I keep meaning to use the heraldry and probably will use it more with the bells. I expect I'll use the household badge a lot more: Sable, in saltire a paintbrush and a quill pen argent and in chief a bell Or. Cool, huh?

9. Are you on all the kingdom/society lists available to you, or do you avoid them? – I don't exactly avoid them, but don't really want to take time to read everything, so I'm only on a few.

10. Do you keep your Pennsic/Estrella/Gulf Wars/etc. site tokens? – Not any more. I keep a bunch of the nicer pewter site tokens.

11. Do you keep the favours you've been given by royalty/friends/SOs, etc.? Do you wear them all? – I tend to keep them but wear them rarely.

12. Do you call your friends by their SCA names even when you're not at an event? – Yes. There are some people whose real names I don’t even know. I try not to call people by their SCA names in front of non-SCAdians.

13. Do you go out to dinner in garb after an event? – Yeah, I still think it's kinda fun. If I have modern clothes and no one else is in garb, I'll change.

14. Do you have all kinds of garb, or do you generally stick to one period? – A little of this, a little of that. Some of my best stuff doesn't fit any more since I've lost some weight-- a mixed blessing, garb-wise-- and I haven't made new fancy stuff.

15. How many interests do you have within the SCA? What's your favourite? – Calligraphy and illumination. I enjoy teaching students who want to do it well.

16. Do you have an SCA-oriented web site (to show off projects, keep dress diaries, etc.)? – No

17. Do you maintain a hairstyle that is more period style than modern? How about any other part of your appearance? – I look AWFUL with long hair-- all sad and tired-- so it's relatively short. I don't wear makeup or nail polish; don't know what else would apply.

18. Do you tell "No $###, there I was" stories? (Admit it.) Do any of them involve well-known SCA people? – I would if I'd ever been there. Or maybe I'm there but am such a poor storyteller I don't realize it?

19. Authenticity is Fun. Yes or no? Why? – I like Sunneva's reply: I’m gonna be as authentic as is fun.

20. Is there one modern thing at events that really bugs you? – Modern drink containers. Modern lawn chairs. I wear sunglases, and it doesn't really bother me-- the sun is such a problem for me I totally understand someone else wearing them too.

Bonus Question! 21. Everyone has a shameful garb/accessory mistake hidden somewhere in their past. What's yours? My first "garb" was made for me by a SCAdian garbster, but it was more of a costume for a party and she didn't feel the need to be authentic. It was a butter-yellow chemise with a bright turquoise sleeveless overdress that fastened under my bosom, and a hot-pink silk cummerbund sort of affair. Why, yes, it was during Miami Vice. Why do you ask?

Nikulai says these aren't really memes, but I have no idea what else to call them.



Socialist

You scored 68% Personal Liberty and 19% Economic Liberty!

A socialist believes in little to moderate government intervention on
personal matters and extremely high government intervention on economic
matters. They are strongly opposed to capitalism as an economic system
and try to uphold personal liberty at the same time. Socialist thought
is economically collectivist and egalitarian in nature.

And now the really fun one, snitched from [livejournal.com profile] syaldia:
Post the first sentences from ten of your favorite books and have your friends guess what they are from. If the intro/prologue seemed part of the book, instead of just an introduction, I used it. Otherwise, I went to chapter one.

1. Marco da Cola, gentleman of Venice, respectfully presents his greetings. An Instance of the Fingerpost-- Iain Pears

2. Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. One Hundred Years of Solitude-- Gabriel Garcia-Marquez [livejournal.com profile] island42

3. The six notes that were spread out on my desk next to last month's Billboard article and the gossip-column radiated a strange and threatening quality. The Broken Promise Land-- Marcia Muller

4. "I've watched through his eyes, I've listened through his ears, and I tell you he's the one." Ender's Game- Orson Scott Card [livejournal.com profile] island42

5. Two seemingly unconnected events heralded the summons of Mr. George Smiley from his dubious retirement. Smiley's People-- John Le Carre

6. Lately, I've been spending a lot of time rolling on the ground with men who think a stiffy represents personal growth. Hard Eight-- Janet Evanovich

7. It begins, as most things begin, with a song. Anansi Boys- Neil Gaiman [livejournal.com profile] syaldia

8. Nora Bonesteel was the first one to know about the Underhill family. The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter-- Sharyn McCrumb [livejournal.com profile] margaretc

9. When the cat came through the little trapdoor at the bottom of the screen it made a clack, clack sound. Skinwalkers-- Tony Hillerman

10. Five hours New York jet lag and Cayce Pollard wakes in Camden Town to the dire and ever-circling wolves of disrupted circadian rhythm. Pattern Recognition-- William Gibson [livejournal.com profile] owlmoose

Bonus! 11. Just because I know how to change a guy's oil doesn't mean I want to spend the rest of my life on my back, staring up at his undercarriage. Metro Girl-- Janet Evanovich

What Flavour Are You? I taste like Peanut Butter.I taste like Peanut Butter.


I am one of the most blendable flavours; I go with sweet, I go with sour, I go with bland, I go with anything. I am practical and good company, but have something of a tendency to hang around when I'm not wanted, unaware that my presence is not welcome. (If you were not Peanut Butter you would be Alcohol.)What Flavour Are You?


Hmmm. Leading me to speculate: If I were alcohol my presence might be welcome a bit more often, but I wouldn't necessarily like the effect I had on people. Maybe I'll stick with peanut butter.

Bad night. Killer migraine with nausea attached. The absolute worst part is that my insurance is screwed up again and I have 2 doses of imitrex left, and I can't find the number of the HR person to call.

Guilt
What is yours?
Explain yourself
Culinary: butter Grits. Popcorn. Biscuits. All good methods of conveying butter to the mouth.
Literary: Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series Not that I feel the least bit guilty about these, but they are about the lightest thing I read. Laugh-out-loud funny.
Audiovisual: City Confidential on A&E Cheeeeeeesy.
Musical: '80's dance music I heard "Cold Hearted Snake" on that silly dance competition show and remembered how much I liked it.
Celebrity: Not really. I can't think of anybody I get seriously silly over. (So to speak.)

LJ Interests meme results



  1. bluegrass music:
    It makes me happy, all that pickin' and grinnin'.
  2. books:
    Art books with big color pictures. Falling-apart cookbooks with food stains all in them. Entire series of mysteries in paperback. Hardback mysteries and a book on cataloging from Aunt Susan. Books.
  3. cats:
    As dragonazure says, plushy endorphin goodness.
  4. eye candy:
    Okay, if you need this explained, there's no hope for you. Oh, you mean examples? Viggo Mortensen. George Clooney (without the beard and fat.) And in a rare side trip to blondes, Brad Pitt. I still remember seeing him in Thelma and Louise. Heh.
  5. good food:
    Sushi. Prime rib. Chinese food. Greek food. Asparagus with lemon butter. Rich chocolate desserts with whipped cream.
  6. harry potter:
    I enjoy HP but I'm definitely on the low end of the interest spectrum here-- I can't quote a single thing from any book or movie.
  7. libraries:
    Of everything they tried to teach me in history in all my years in school, one of the few things that left me wide-eyed with horror was the destruction of the library at Alexandria.
  8. medieval manuscripts:
    A different sort of eye candy. I love the details in the border illuminations, like finding the kid in a little walker with wheels on it.
  9. mysteries:
    Especially ones with a twist, or an unusual perspective.
  10. pennsic:
    What I did on my summer vacation.
