Post #445 - Delighted
Sorry about the drought there. Just finished up Dickens Fair and it soaked up every last morsel of time I had - with the exception of all that loafing and stuff.
So here are the pictures of the event that I know you are itching to see.
And before any of you forget, I had a birthday in there too. It was a great party (for those of you wo missed it), instead of the usual dinner with family thing I decided that we should have Bad Movie Night. So we watched Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter. Holy son of God it was SO BAD. In the first five minutes, Jesus Kung Fu fights with lesbian vampires on the shore of the lake, then there is the first MUSICAL number. Later, God speaks to Jesus through a bowl of ice cream, and reminds him to call his mother, "She misses you." It is a new high water mark of badness.
Dickens was OUTSTANDING. There were so many delightful moments, but it all comes down to spending time with people you love doing the thing that delights them, all while entertaining the public who came in record numbers to experience our play time.
Work is still OK - with the exception of the company getting smaller to match our sales volume. Those of us who are still there have some more work to do. For those who were let go, it is never a good time to be laid off but right now must be exceptionally difficult. For me personally one of the departures made some things easier, but another made some things more difficult. I suppose there will be a balance of sorts.
So it's on to Christmas in a day or two. I have some presents to wrap, another to make and wrap, and a few things to still looka around for. I'd like to put up a few lights, if the rain holds off. Better get to it.
