Huzzah for Fezzes

Not only did I manage to rope Ash into attending a Renaissance festival with me this year, I got him to dress up, help me with my henna table, and drum too. I made him a costume, but it was the promise of a fez that made him agree to wear it. It also helped that I coerced some of his friends into dressing up too.

All weekend, I kept hearing people yell “Fezzes are cool!” whenever they saw my husband. At first, I wanted to shout back “Don’t encourage him,” but I didn’t want to complain since I didn’t have to work at the festival by myself.

So, if you want to make your significant other attend a Renaissance faire, buy him a fez… or some mead. Mead helps too.

Zombie Walk

Ash just had his birthday last weekend, but he was scheduled to work. So, the day before his birthday I took him to a nearby Irish pub so he could get his fix of fish and chips. (He has been watching a lot of British shows lately, so he refuses to eat French fries anymore.)


Poor Ash. He celebrated the day of his birth by pretending to be dead.
After Ash put in a grueling day of work, he joined me amongst the living dead at an annual zombie walk. It was a benefit for the food shelf, which is kind of sick but it’s for a good cause.

Summer Recap

Over the summer, Ash and I moved to a new apartment. It was shocking how much stuff we had crammed in our previous one bedroom apartment. Ash was pleased to move to the new place because of the second bedroom, which he took over as his “man cave.” It’s full of his comics, which would make it more of a “nerd room” than a “man cave,” but I digress.

I took this picture mid-packing to document my sorrow.
After moving, and unpacking, life just got in the way. Yes, Ash still keeps wasting money on comics and Doctor Who DVDs, but I’ve just been so busy with work and other obligations I haven’t even had time to complain about him publicly lately! Last Sunday was the first time in over two months where I wasn’t obligated to be anywhere, and it was nice!
  
Anyway, I hope things will settle down after Halloween. This year I decided to be lazy and not make new costumes, but I think I will make up for it by making caramel apples instead!
