My Lords, My Ladies

Posted By on March 25, 2010

This has been the longest week in the history of weeks! On top of having the Death Plague, I’ve been in a sales meeting all week and it has plum-tuckered me out! And I still have one more day to go! THE HORROR!

It has actually been a good meeting overall. But coming off a weekend of being sick and doing nothing more than sleeping and blowing your nose, being a functioning human being and showering and talking and BEING AWAKE is downright exhausting! I’ve gone to bed as early as I could this whole week, which meant more than one day going to bed before 9 PM.

But now that it is Thursday, I’m starting to feel a ton better. I’m not as tired. I’m not coughing as much. I’m not killing so many trees with my use of Kleenex. And I finally have enough energy to blog! And tell you about my magical trip to Medieval Times!

We went there for an outing on Tuesday night with the work group. It was…well, interesting to say the least. I don’t particularly enjoy eating with my hands. And the “action” on the “stage” was very cheesy and very rehearsed, but the apple tart was good. So were the free beers.

Don’t I look regal in my paper crown? Doth thou agree-eth?

We were cheering for the yellow knight. We referred to him as Kristoff because he was very Polish looking. We also wondered when was the last time he had showered.

Also, what do these guys do for a day job where it is acceptable to have a mullet/unwashed 80s rocker hair?

I had an excellent time making fun of everything. I also kept wondering when Heath Ledger and Geoffrey Chaucer were going to come out and re-enact a scene from A Knight’s Tale. Because that would have been worthy of my cheers! Also, beer + cold medicine = hallucinations of people coming back from the dead to re-enact a role.

Sir Ulllllllrrrrriiiiicccchhh von Lichtenstein!!!

I entertained myself by annoying people on Twitter about our medieval follies.

And I realized that you have to either go all in or not with the crown, lest you walk around in public with crown head.

Which was why yes, neighbors, I was still wearing a paper crown on my head at 10 PM on a Tuesday night. Doth thou jeer me?

So people of the interwebs, what have I missed this week? It has been too long! I feel as if a part of me has been amputated, without my presence on the information superhighway this week! Me thinketh I have a wee addiction!

    The crown (and post-crown crownhead, actually) = very Burger King-esque. I craveth a Whopper now, thankest thou for that.

    I think MT is very cheesy. But…free beer? Maybe, just maybe next time I’m in Chicagoland…

    WHAT? No. There are WAY better places to eat in Chicago! And I’ve been missing my bi-annual trips so I have some catching up to do. (Still…free beer…)

    Glad you’re feeling better and your blog is back!!!!!

    If you haven’t seen the video of Dubya wiping his hand on Bill Clinton’s shirt, you MUST! I’ll try & find the link to send to you. Asshat.

    Although I haven’t seen you so can’t blame you for the germs, I feel like I might be coming down with something similar to what you’ve been battlong. Course, everyone at work has had cough/cold/rabies all week. Rabies? Me need coffee.

    Gee, I wonder what Dubya would do at Medieval Times? Would all his Secret Service guys walk out of there all covered in chicken grease? Would they even go in there with him in the first place? Inquiring minds want to know….

    I love Medieval Times!!! You’re so right about the day jobs though . . . motorcycle salesman? Dokken cover band member? Hockey player? Romance novel cover model?

    I went to MT just this past Saturday. I was with the green knight, so clearly we’re sworn enemies now.

    Also, they do like… 2-3 shows a day, 5 days a week… so I’m pretty sure this IS those guy’s day job…

    Yes! You were missed!

    (You didn’t miss much on the Internet…same old, same old.)

    When we went to MT, Aaron could not stop musing about what the players did during the day time.

    Didn’t you find it hard to eat with the HORRIBLE STINKY HORSE smell? You could not pay me to go EVER AGAIN!

    Could they possibly have been wearing wigs? Cheap wigs that can’t be washed so they look extra greasy and gross?
