1) What brought you into the world of Ren Faire(s)
The trunk of a grey 1980 Ford Grenada. Seriously. Two friends from high school were going (we were all out of HS at this point) and they were camping. At the time, it was very hard to sneak someone onto the campgrounds, so just before pulling in, I climbed into the trunk. That's right -- I DID camp, at faire, exactly once. Princess found herself a hotel room shortly thereafer. ( #2 is a long one )
3) What is your biggest pet peeve?
I have lots, of course, but my biggest is guy friends, in two parts. First is when they stop being friends with you as soon as they realize that you are never going to have sex with them; second is when they stop being friends with you as soon as you have a boyfriend or --gods forbid -- when you get married. This pisses me off NO END.
4) You can live anywhere in the world you'd like...where is that (why)?
This is a tough one....Ideally, money being no object, I'd have four houses and split my time. An old Victorian in New York State, with lots of land. A beach house in Hutchinson Island, FL, with a wide expanse of private beach. A flat or small row house in the Crouch End section of London, UK, a place I have been exactly once and LOVED. A house with a private pool in Orlando, near my family.
5)Name one item/place you hold dear (why)?
Ringwood State Park. I used to ride my bike there when I was a kid and it's where I learned to ride a two-wheeler. I love the two manor houses on the property, the old graveyard, the grounds, the tennis courts. I love everything about it.
