I’d give the neighbors a heads up if you talk to them regularly and it was over their way. Otherwise personally I’d wait for more info. I’ve pulled off on the sides of rural roads to sleep a few hours on my way back from intense hike days and stuff for safety, it seems to me there’s more benign explanations than malicious ones.
yeah, I do. Thats what Id planned…
Our neighborhood has a private FB group which is pretty handy for things like this. People will post that they saw something odd, someone’s dog got out, is anyone selling girl scout cookies and the like. There have been a few posts when someone caught something on camera and asked if anyone had other info or a better camera angle, and they were able to figure out the situation by cooperating. Maybe you could start one with your neighbors?
I’ve never been to a Renaissance Fair before, and I’m going to one this weekend. What advice do you all have?
Are you dressing up or going in regular clothes?
- Wear comfortable shoes
- Take more cash in small bills than you think you’ll need. Don’t set it down at home on the counter right before your leave like I did last time I went to one.
- If you can get an idea of the performance schedule, keep in mind that the lines for food will be significantly longer right after a show lets out.
I think going in regular clothes? We don’t have renaissance-y clothes. Some friends of mine all went in costumes that were not at all renaissance related, but I think they were just doing that as a bit and that it’s not a real thing, right?
Just make sure your clothes are weather appropriate then. If you were wearing renaissance-y clothes there might’ve been more tips (e.g. boot on first then corset cause once you get a corset on you can’t bend over to put your boots on).
Take lots of money. It’s a shopping experience with entertainment. LOL
Let yourself really sink into it. Yell huzzah when others do. Buy a ridiculous dress or corset or leather braces. Wear elf ears and drink mead.
Take a lot of water. Do not take a big purse.
do I finish the nonfiction book that I’m halfway through and bored by, but is an easy enough read, just to pad my ‘books read in 2022’ stats?
for context, I do not need this to hit my target:
No. Life is too short to be bored!!!
Life is too short to read boring books! I used to force myself to finish books, but I reminded myself that reading is a hobby, and it should be fun…now I give a book about 100 pages and if I still have zero interest or it’s boring, I just stop and find something better
I bought a cute vase that has a sticker on the bottom saying “not for use with water”. Is there anything I can put on the bottom unfinished area to waterproof it? Clear nail polish maybe?
I suspect the material absorbs water and even if you waterproof the outside, it might trap water and get moldy. Sorry
I think she’s thinking about the inside of it?
Oh, I misread! That might work!
