Anyone want to see Axis of Awesome tomorrow (7pm Thursday $15+$2.75bf)?

ETA: Given no one is interested (and they've sold out of the cheap tix, I'll follow my original plan and go another day. This way it gives me time to recover from the opthamologist's drops (eyes fine!).]

Nah, I got one of them years ago. Although they did try and give me another one last year because they lost track. :-)

Oh dear. I seem to have lost the ability to interpret language. Oh dear. There are all these words but they don't seem to make any sense. =8P

Twenty-five year old neurons coming back online. Firing. OK. Now have context. Shutting down that part of my brain now.

I only have a promissary note for one. I kind of got the hint when everyone else got theirs announced at court and mine was handed to me by the then Baroness as she was slumped in a bean-bag in someone's lounge room. [But as I'm one of only about a dozen people that got one on the direct authority of the Viceroyalty rather than the Crown (of either West or Lochac), I do think it kind of unique and actually prefer it to any would-be subsequent patent of award.]

I didn't even get that far. I was absent from the event at which it was announced, and the promissary note never got passed along. So it was easy enough to convert the second AoA into a 'we're finally actually getting around to giving you this' when someone pointed out 'I think she has one of those'.

Shows how valued you are when they don't actually realise that the axiomatic awards were already given. Given the amount of kitchen autocrating you do I'd definitely be putting you in for higher awards.

Then again, my phase in the Society was firstly when awards were impossible to come by (and some of the highest awards in Lochac were simple armigers), followed by an intense period of award escalation as Lochac became a principality (immortalized in the song Climbing the Ladder in the SCA by a certain Viscount). I suspect the pendulum has swung the other way and they are a lot more conservative with awards than they were then. [I actually preferred the first period, because people were much more courteous and their noble qualities much more apparent when they didn't have the title to go with it.]

Then again, you don't have certain unnamed people breaking things and continually backbiting because someone else (deservedly) got a Laurel before them. Personally I would have thought the second would have disqualified them from ever getting one, but then, that's why I'm not in the SCA, isn't it? <grin>

Well I think part of it was that I spent five years in another barony, and changed my (SCA) name while I was there. Plus I'm not so much a regular anymore because of the kids. I tend to come very sproadically to events, and mostly be in the kitchen when I'm there.
