|10:51 am - Eris keeps everyone on their toes. Or sneaking out on their toes. . .|
So there's this great picture of me, holding up a hotdog bun and preparing my offering to Eris during my Consecration at the Summerland Unity Rite.
And right behind me, romandruid is sitting there, averting her eyes in a "damnit, there he goes again" sort of look.
Love ya, romandruid. Don't ever change. . . I'm not gonna. . .
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder

I know. I find myself far more interested in what the people in the background are doing in the pictures from that rite. Mostly because I remember what I did, and I remember what I saw, but hell, there were all sorts of things going on that I couldn't see. It's nice to get a little perspective on this stuff.

Is that one of the few unblurry ones I took? The only other person I saw with a camera would be behind you (and to the viewer's right). Oh well, guess that's what I get for not bringing my camera/tripod and for not drinking to steady the shakes. :)
(j/k, my hands always shake, rather I drink or not, which is probably one reason I haven't done as much with my equipment as I'd like to, too much shaking.)
*nods* Fortunately, the really blurry ones aren't overly important ones. But yes, you took this one.

Oh well, next time you get ordained we'll go all-out. Stills, video, audio, and, of course, umbrellas.
We will have to. Seems I'm going in 3 year increments: DP work, then Consecration, and Ordination would, I suppose, be scheduled for summerland '09

Well, hell, by then one of us will piss the other off so much that we won't be talking to eachother. /probably already has happened, the other person probably just doesn't know it by now. :)
That's why I wrote a bot to respond to your comments.

Great picture! Hee!

I don't know... it looks like she could be about to cough because of the blurry... but imagining that everyone is stone-faced during this part of the ritual makes it even more humorous to me. The man bowing his head behind you for example. Oh holy hotdog bun, Batman!

I'm not sure where "Of course, belief is a tool." came in, but I agree about the sunlight assessment.
Nope, it was definitely accompanied by a groan on my part. Nothing at all to do with the sunlight.
Yeah, that would be me going, "Oh Gods, no, not again..." which was followed quickly thereafter by a glance around for big, dark, lightning-carrying clouds. I half expected to find myself standing next to you in another lightning storm. Again. (Wait, no... there were no metal poles to hold onto.)
As it was an unarmed bun (er... perhaps that should be an "undogged" bun?), I guess it was relatively safe. And you did actually take it outside the circle.
Yes, I know better than to ask Eris to come *into* a Unity Rite. . . :)
Thanks for being there, though. :)
Besides, paybacks from a Bard can be a real bitch, I hear. *grin*
I totally need that video. Badly.
It was video-taped?
(*beet red blush*)
Skip videotaped the entire night
Hey, do you know what ever happened to the videotape of my consecration, by the way? And... er, my 'singing debut'? I never did hear anymore about those.
Priceless... truly priceless!!! :)
(And you look just as yummy as that bun, I might add. ;)

Cool Pic. Hail Eris.
Still sorry I had to miss. Like my Dad always said, if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.
