Twelfth Night Hat Trick  
I always try my utmost to make it to Nordskogen's Twelfth Night and this year that was really the only one I had planned on attending... Somehow, however, I have ended up attending three Twelfth Nights in three different Kingdoms - Calontir (Omaha), Northshield (Nordskogen) and Midrealm (Tree-Girt-Sea)!

Good, if very different times were had at all of them - Calontir's being the fightiest, Northshield's being the most award-related exciting, and Midrealm's was the most relaxing. In fact, other than the drive there and back, I was pretty quality useless all day long. I didn't go to the Laurel meeting, I didn't wear the coronet, I didn't go to court... I did take a lovely little nap, though. :)  I chatted and sewed, drank and embroidered (we'll see if any of the stitching needs to be picked out tomorrow). It was good to see folks, if some more briefly than planned...

However, my weekend is far from done - it's to bed with me and Yule Moot in the morning!

I spend four hours in meetings and you call the event relaxing? :)

Ah the joys of a)Double Peerage and b) being in your own kingdom.

Heh. Faelan's right. Not my kingdom, not my problem. :P

I wouldn't expect out-of-kingdom peers to attend peerage meetings, that's interesting.

It's not expected in the way it is for an in-kingdom peer, but if you ask to attend, permission is often granted. I've been to Midrealm and Calontiri meetings - sometimes to speak from someone in particular and sometimes just for Inter-Kingdom Anthropology.

That makes sense.

I wish I had known you were going. We were on the fence and decided not to go because Rusty's out of town next week for the BoD meeting

Sorry, it was a sort of last minute decision. It would have been awesome to see you folks, though. :/

AAAAaaaagh argh argh you didn't tell me Arienne Ashford was put on vigil!!!! (Or did you not stay for Court?)

YAY for bards becoming Laurels, even if it's not for their bardic work. I imagine it's for her lacework, she's done some incredible research and masterful work. But I do mostly see her at bardic circles.

Glad you had a good 12th Night #3!

Sorry, no, I didn't stay for court, so this was news to me too. Very good news, though!
