The universe on its head

This weekend was...different.

The history of my relationship with my husband has been that Saturdays at events he spaces out during dinner, gets a second, third, and fourth wind simultaneously, and reluctantly comes back to the tent/cabin/room either hours earlier than he wants to, or around 3 or 4 AM. I on, the other hand, usually tough it out until 11 or so (or earlier), read for a little while, and wait for him to come home, sometimes falling asleep, sometimes not.

And there is a friend of ours who always, always, always, vanishes sometime around 9:30 and is asleep by 10.

So, spouse spaces during dinner, but nowhere near as much as usual, doing about 1/3 of the serving, being chatty. Hmmm.

Dinner is over about 8:45. I'm ready for bed. He isn't. He asks what we're going to do for the rest of the evening. I say, let's see if I get any energy after the lights come up.

Time passes. The universe inverts.

After wandering around with Rhi for about an hour, Morguhn comes back to the hall where I am in the middle of a mad game of Plunder (which is where I was when he left--it's all Diego's fault!), kisses me good night, and goes back to the cabin and bed.

When the game finally ends (much later), on my way out of the hall I hug Dorinda, who is cheerfully chatting and drinking a Mike's Hard Lemonade, goodnight.

And somewhere, horses were eating each other and Macbeth and Banquo are on their way to see the witches.

By last night, the universe seemed back to it's normal orientation, but I gotta tell ya, it was weird.

Oh, and we haven't seen Serenity yet. I'll probably end up going alone next Saturday while they're at Crown. Reivers, Crown list--same dif.

Nah, there's a difference between
Reavers and Crown...

Once you're a Reaver, you don't have to buy a new hat.

and your political/national affiliation depends on what dirt you stand on and who is asking.

hunger is the best pickle.
"Reivers, Crown list--same dif."

Oh not at all, Reivers are people who are straight forward and honest about wanting to torture and twist all the find and eat it while it's still screaming. The straight forward and honest part would be about the only difference.

Oh, Reivers have a better sense of decor and fashion.
