Greetings My Faithful Readers!


I couldn't think of a more fitting topic than Pennsic readiness, since we're all (for the most part) frantically sewing and armoring and packing ourselves into a frenzy...at least those of us who are leaving for Pennsic in 23 days (or less). YIPE! So, just to add a little inspiration, here's a list of Pennsic Links. Notice that I've included the Alexander the Lost's Party Schedule! You'd better get cracking on that garb for the Men without Pants Party. It'll be hard to top my friend Tim's "sign my kilt" ploy at a memorable version of the "without pants" party, but I'm sure you can do it.


Be safe, travel carefully, drink lots of water, and I'll see you all when I get home, to Pennsic.....

(Site Excerpt) O'Dark-Thirty About a half-hour after sundown. This is the time many parties start. You'll see it on many posters and fliers. Pennsic Crack Otherwise known as the Cooper's chocolate milk. It's good. Very good. (Assuming you like sweet) You can pick it up at the Cooper's store.

My Old Man's A... (A Pennsic Song with sound files)

By "Uncle Justinian"


(Site Excerpt)

My old man's a Laurel. What do you think about that?

He wears a completely authenticated, fully documented tabard,

And a completely authenticated, fully documented hat,

And a completely authenticated, fully documented tunic,

And completely authenticated, fully documented shoes,

And every day at Pennsic, he refuses to read the Pennsic Daily Tidings

Because his persona would not have been able to understand English.

And some day, if I can,

I'm going to be a Laurel, and criticize my old man.
