Of course that includes you. We treat everyone the same here and if you
stick your head out of the shell we want to hear more about you.

I have hung around Caid for about 24 years, which makes me a wooly
mammoth, not a dinosaur. My SCA membership number is in the low 2000's.
My name is definitely non-authentic (Ciorstan MacAmhlaidh has multiple
problems, but it's ancient and I like to think honorable-- and
grandfathered!); my arms are something I sorta kinda stole off the
awning above the Welsh's Grape Juice Stand in Fantasyland back before
they totally remodeled that area of the park and covered my tracks. I
live in south Angels, Caid, and usually play with Gyldenholt (when I
actually come to an event) as they're the geographically closest to my
I would call myself thread-obsessed; I like to create thread and deploy
it. I have, um, at last count, two spinning wheels and <cough> five
looms, which range in size from a toy-size band loom to an eight-harness
floor loom. I love the very feel of linen; this means the floor loom
which is not strong enough to withstand the high tension of linen
weaving is eventually going to be replaced with something that can.
Unless I upgrade the harp first. Oh-- I'm interested in SCA-culture
bardic stuff; used to play professionally (fretted dulcimer) and I've
got a hammered dulcimer and a bodhran littering the place, too.
I bake bread (including bread from a 7-year old sourdough culture);
especially like to eat, and like to draw (used to do scrolls both
illumination and calligraphy).
I'd call myself a child of the 60's: 860, 1260, 1360, 1560 being my
favorites. Since I'm from a Western-offshoot kingdom, we're not too
strong on the concept of persona, so to paraphrase Anne McCaffery a bit,
I'm vaguely Scottish, the hair is dark reddish-brown, eyes are hazel and
the rest is subject to change without notice. Two kids, two cats who
think they own everyone else, and One Blond Husband round out the lot.
Or is that oversharing?
