Dear people who organize festivals: why are you so obsessed with late September/early October? I swear there are a half-dozen interesting events going on every single weekend in that period. Spread it around a little! Could I interest you, perhaps, in some prime timeslots in January or March?
Yet another of the many reasons we need at least six months of autumn.
So I was planning on going to the MD Microbrewery Festival yesterday, but when I couldn’t get anyone to go with me and I woke up with the same head cold the kids have, I decided to just take it easy. Today I went to the Mother Earth Harvest Faire, despite the continuing cold and a strangely sore knee and neck (somnambulant kung-fu? Who can say?). Had fun tagging along with Stacey as she made the rounds visiting all the people she knows in the local organic/sustainable living community. By 1:30 I was feeling pretty fatigued, so we came home and I crashed while Stacey knitted.
I just finished going through my inbox. Now I think I’m going to go lie down again – my neck hurts like hell.
Man, if I’d realized what a boring post this was going to be, I wouldn’t have taken the time to write it 😛
