So, don't tell anyone, Internet, but on Sunday I played hooky from book revisions to go with my girlfriends to the nearby renaissance festival, Scarborough Faire. No, my friends are not named Parsley, Sage and Thyme. That would be weird (but awesome). Though possibly not as weird (but awesome) as some of the things we saw at the ren faire.
One of us had never been to such a thing before, and marveled at the amount of work people put into their costumes and crafts.Only one of us dressed in costume. (Though more of us could have, if we'd been so inclined. As someone once said, "Fandom means never having to ask yourself 'But where will I wear that?'")
Okay readers. Poll time! If you could time travel to any point in history (AND have running water and sanitary food preparation conditions) when would it be?
