Ye Olde Fort Tryon Parke.

On Sunday I went to the Fort Tryon Park Medieval Faire! Jenny & I went there to meet up with Jocelyn (pictured above), Brian (who took the above photograph), Kat & her friend from the other night Chris. I really like Fort Tryon Park! You know, Olmsted's kid helped design it. Anyhow, I was happy to head up there, & even gladder to do it for a Ren Faire! Jocelyn & I are both from the Wasteland, so we have bonded over the fact that the same Ren Faire circuit connected us. Hack & Slash; Slash & Hack! For instance. Anyhow, costume-wise, the easy winner was the Plague Doctor. Those who know me well know that the Plague Doctor is the mascot of Oubliette, so I obviously was excited to see him. Second place was the Dave Strider outfit. Because of course it is. I saw Mike there, who I met for the first time immediately after the Medieval Faire, years ago. He hadn't changed out of his costume, so I knew what to look for. I expected to run into more people, though. I ate some potato latkes & a bratwurst & drank a ton of really expensive cheap beer. The bartender girl was really good at flirting. I'm good at flirting, so I am used to getting decent flirting thrown my way-- #humblebrag-- but this girl I wanted to be like "hey I know you are like, a bartender & thus a professional flirt, & it may be the ye olde time garb, but I feel like we should be pals!" Friendcrush. Bye, strange wench, back into the mists of time with thee! The joust was...really exciting? Like, legitimately dangerous & tense! Two riders were thrown by their horses! After the faire, Jenny & I went to...a strange wooden building in the West Village? I was a little grumpy, then; my tummy hurt. My stomach troubles were bad enough that Jenny & I decided to just take a cab home, which was a good call. At home we watched Castle; hey, the season premiere We stopped watching that show when it stopped being fun, but if having them hook up restores the playful element, I'm back in. Just stop with the melodrama, already!
