As we are in the heart of the Texas Renaissance Festival season I must confess I am of two minds about not being hired this year.
One the one hand I have the entire series of fall weekends to myself. That means we get to play the Austin Celtic Festival and I can go to the Airshow and the Quilt Festival and do all those things I have been deprived of in the fall as a result of 15+ years of dedication and sacrifice to the festival.
But there are things I miss. There are some very good memories tied up in that experience.
I was poking round the Internets and I found some pictures someone took that time Istanpitta pranked us by dressing as us and parodying the Flu Pandemic a few years ago.
Seeing Sahira dressed as Joe was about the most ridiculously funny thing I have ever had the opportunity to behold.

So what gives with the Faire, anyhow? I heard rumors there were significant cutbacks on the entertainment in an attempt to save money.
It’s hard to imagine TRF without you guys.
you guys were the only show i’ve consistently gone to at faire – guess my crew and i will stick to drinking at prince of wales pub and harassing our ex-coworkers as they stroll on by. >=)
I’m going to pout about it here too. We walked in the gate, we bought the schedule, and … *GASP* there was no FFS. We had told the in-laws all about you. Jason wanted to make audience puppets for the show for this year. And … they didn’t hire you.
I was very sad about the lack of stages and shows – it is what has made the festival what I have loved for the past 5 years. It just seemed empty this year.
