Ever feel like you don't fit in?

I do. See, I'm on LJ, not Blogger or Blogspot or whatever. I am currently under doctor's orders Not to knit (I did NOT ask about weaving or spinning....but throwing a shuttle hurts, so I haven't been.) Oh, yeah - I do fiber arts. No one - that I have found, anyway - does that out in my little itty-bitty podunk town.

Add to that my penchant for bodices, Ren Faires, pyrates, and all Things Scottish (and All Things had Better be In A Kilt!)...and - voila! - I do not fit in.

Oh, and the little matter that I am widowed with 2 young children - the folks out here have no clue how to deal with me. I'm tired of beating my head against the wall, but I refuse to change just to fit in. BTDT, and I was miserable. I'd rather just be me - the world can go hang.

Why the morose thoughts? We're on Deathwatch, and you start thinking about anything and everything to keep distracted. *shrug*

Oh, I must share a funny - the boss's wife told us that Saturday, the doctors ordered some test...they go in thru the nose, up almost to the brain, then back down to wherever. Long, gruesome test - she didn't know what it was for, and had to leave in the middle of it.

Anyway, I work for an independent Oil and Gas Company. *g* After the test, Mrs. Boss went back into the room to soothe Mr. Boss. He said, in a very loud and quarrellsome voice (and this was corraborated by the nurses) "It was a Dry Hole. I could have told them that! I'm the expert here - I knew they would come up dry!"

Guess you had to be there.....*g*

I'm a weird widow too. (well kindof..we were divorced before he died, but I can say im a widow can't I?? *grin*)

I spin and knit and tablet weave and do natural dyeing and want my very own sheep for my back yard.

I'm in the SCA too, so my neighbors see me leave the house and go..."whaaaa???"

Too bad we aren't a little bit closer together. We could be weird together. *grin*

Oh..I *might* be in Ennis on Saturday. I'll let you know more. It depends on if I get a check before Friday.
