Reminders of the past and a miscellany  
I have been sick all week with the cold/fever/lost my voice thing, and as a result am feeling neglected and cranky.

It all changed this afternoon when the cell rang. It was Stu!!

Wow - that brings back memories of my youth in the SCA. Of the long, hot, sticky midwestern summer weekends. Of the old gang, back when none of us were anyone important or had any responsibility.

Stu *sigh* One of only 3 men who has ever made my teeth sweat with desire. He was the hot property for a few years, no denying that. Not just a pretty boy, but certainly pretty enough. And those muscles! We all used to make him carry stuff around just to watch *smirk* I wonder if he still has that long blonde/carmel hair? I asked him once why I was the only girl out of the group he wouldn't date. He said it was because he was afraid of me *snort* I reminded him of that today and we laughed about it. A good thing I think. He in turn picked on my by telling me I was that last person he ever went skinny dipping with. *giggle* It was wonderful to chat with him for an hour, and I made him promise to call or email once in awhile. I'll have to head back est for the occasional event, I think.

Talking to him and reminiscing brought C**** to mind. One of the others on that list *sigh*. C**** of the looong auburn hair and the crystal blue eyes. Of the ever delicate touch with those strong blacksmith's hands. I could have played with his hair for hours, and was more than once set adrift in those cornflower blue depths. I think that we were always too polite to each other because of the banked fires waiting to consume us. I found out years later that he always seemed to know where I was - one only had to ask him *smile* Same as I was ever conscious of him, I think. I look back on the careful steps with which we danced around each other with regret. We were both too serious then - I think that even a short trek into the wilderness would have been a good thing. Damn that natural reserve!!

Went for the tour at Flatirons Athletic Club today - it was goodness. More details in the workout journal (since some here have expressed interest - how odd is that?) theredhead1fenc

I've been looking back thru old emails from when I was at Yale. What ever happened to that girl?

Beauty comes in many colors...
Perfection in only one.

A few years ago at Pennsic I ran into some people from the local group I was in when I first joined at 15 years old. One of the women didn't recognize me at all and so started hitting on me big time. The fact is that girls in her peer group, who were a few years older than I was back then, blew me off because I was younger.
It made me chuckle to think about how things had changed..
