Maelstrom this weekend passed, much as I suspected it might, in a most pleasant and relaxing manner. Not playing the Big Blue Bird™ made the event physically much more comfortable and far far more relaxed. There was absolutely nothing at all that I had to do, nobody I had to visit and nowhere that I had to go ... bliss! Curiously enough I had the best time just sitting in, or standing just outside, the Sacuza tent; greeting visitors, steering them towards the right people and taking the occasional ship repayment. There were of course the occasions where people approached me who thought I was playing Jagular, despite the obvious lack of mask and blue make-up ... I was frankly, stunned by this. It makes one wonder just what people see when they look at a character. There were three things about Michael that were the same as Jagular: my boots, my shooting stick and me; other than that everything was different, including accent and demeanour (anyone who met Petrucchio at the Gathering would have noticed a more than passing resemblance to him). Considering the hosts of the event (a bunch of talking snakes), the weather was perfect and the storm on Friday, with its attendant close-proximity lightning strike, was entertaining if a little hard on some people's tents ... especially the tents that had been left open because of the blazing sunshine a few minutes earlier.

High points of the weekend for me were: finally getting to sing the pirate song, catching up with most of the people I don't usually get to chill with, not having to wear the mask or make-up, being cheerful IC and only having a 1hr 15min drive to get there.

My only real regret was not having the balls to be blatantly IC rude to "Tree Stump's" ophidian character when she sat opposite me and talked at me just as I'd sat down to dinner on Friday night. Well, that and hearing snippets of conversations that would have been very interesting to Jagular.

Nina sans LJ (proprietress of the Enlightenment Coffee House) came up with a description of Jagular's dissapproving looks that pleased me greatly; she said that he would show "the beak of disdain". So it was nice to have a holiday but now I'm ready to get back into harness and start playing the game again.
