Ice Ice Baby!!

So I’m at the Florida Renaissance Festival with some friends yesterday, right? And lo and behold, who is standing no more than 20 feet away from us waiting for his wife to buy his kid a toy sword?? VANILLA ICE! So of course, being how I am, I told my friend “I want a pic!” (she was like “I’ll take it, but I’m not asking him.”) And he was sooo nice. Very sweet and polite about it.

So from now on I’ll be stopping, collaborating and listening. I’m just sayin’.

P.S. Oh, and yes… the Ren Fest is EXACTLY how you picture it. More pics to follow as soon as I find my camera battery charger!

P.P.S. I suck!! I completely forgot to “photo credit” Tere! Please go to her blog RIGHT NOW and tell her how cute and fabulous she is! (Thank you, T. xoxoxoxo…)

Watch Me Completely Emasculate This Blog In One Post

(Posted by: Balou)

One of the conditions of me posting on is that I can post ANYTHING I want. (“Anything?” I asked. “Whatever you want,” Fanless answered. “Even if I want to post something about scrapbooking?” [Yes, I scrapbook] I asked. “Yes. Whatever you want,” he said. Okay then; don’t complain later, I thought.)

So here’s where I totally “girly-fy” Behold the latest scrappy page I made (to my credit, at least it’s kind of “punky”; right?  No? Oh well.)
