Once upon a time a young lady went to a college and discovered a thing called the Society for Creative Anachronism.  She and some others were very interested, interested enough that they helped form a college group, complete with a seneschal, secretary, treasurer, etc. and made it a formal, official club as far as the college was concerned.  This group also created an SCA appropriate name and device and set to getting all that approved.

Many all night costuming sessions, archery practices, attempts at armoring, and a couple of children later, the now older lady is getting drawn back into the SCA by some very good friends, one of which hearkens back to those times of yore.  

It's back to the sewing table again.  I'm not hand-sewing this time, though, like I did my very first tunic dress waaaaay back in 1986.  Or was it '85?  And yay, my gambeson still fits!!

Aw, man...all of that must've happened after I left the university...or at least after you and I sorta lost touch with each other...

I was briefly a member of the SCA...just long enough to start attending a page's school until the teacher suddenly moved away. *sigh*

Melissa: ~You had to twist my arm *real* hard.~

Moody: Aw man! Yeah, you would have loved it.
