or lack thereof...

My step-mom died this morning.  I'm up at my dads and will be until the 13th.  Services are on the 12th.

I am sure that I will have something profound (at least in my own mind) to say later once it all sinks in but rest assured, I am doing ok.  My dad is doing ok.  I think that he will pull through this and be stronger for it.

I am glad that I am able to be up here...

Whether you know it or not, I love you guys.  Friends are everything.  Just thought I should get that out there ;-)

Muse was so incredibly awesome. I havent had that much fun at a concert in a while. The music was FANTASTIC. They play on stage just like they play in the studio. Every once in a while you find a band like that and it's always really cool that there are groups that are not just studio bands. Fantastic. And the light show was awesome. Perfectly choreographed. I loved EVERY minute of it. I would so go again....

Thats all. :)

My knighting spurs given to me by Sir William. They were given to him by Duke Guy. They are 1911 era US Cavalry Spurs. Pretty damn cool...

You can see the rest of my knightly stuff here in my flickr stream.

Knighting Chain

Here is the chain that I will be knighted with. It's the traditional Lorelei knights chain and man is it beautiful.....

I realized that I do not have my Knighting belt to take a pic of it. I probably wont have it till after I get knighted. Eronric is still working on it.

Spurs next.

Good times. Hopefully I'll have some more pics of the sword soon

I'll also take a pic or two of my knighting chain.........

Sir Dante (my knight) has made me some sweet white boots for my knighting. They're really awesome... I bought the buckles at pennsic... Pretty damn cool.

One of the strongest memories I had from Pennsic is standing under the calontir royal tent with them while they were singing songs. It was amazing. And one of the songs in particular has stuck with me since then... probably has to do with my impending elevation but still:
