We Did It!!!


Sing it with me... We are the champions, my frie-ends, we'll keep on fightin' 'til the end...  Or if you like it 2005 World Champion White Sox style... Don't stop believin'...  But you know who says it best? YOU! Your faithful cheers and poetry and songs not only made my day every single day last week, they took us straight to the top. Thank You! And thanks for your comments on the animaknights featured here---I'm so happy everyone enjoyed them as much as I did.

Let's let the Fallen Monkey say it for all of us, eh? This was her 3-part Joust comment on Friday:

I sought a soothsayer to divine Lady Elson’s fate,
and what she had to say was great!
“Gather three vine leaves with spots,” said she,
“as the first of which you must bring to me..."

“Next fetch me twenty rodents’ toes,
and you will ease Lady Elson’s woes.
But not before you bring of thine
that which you hold most divine…”

“But Lady Elson is whom I hold divine!”
And to my plea, she replied, “That’s fine.
Bring her to me so I may hold her hand
and only then shall we understand
how vine leaves, toes, and the Lady three
can only spell out VICTORY!

I must also thank my fellow knights. For without them, there would've been no one to knock off of the ponies, am I right? I tip my giant stick thingy to the fabulous Star Knight (a/k/a Ellie Garrat), K.E.N. (a/k/a K.E. Nowinsky), Sir Burns (a/k/a Melanie Schulz), Xanthus Ehrensvard (a/k/a Christine Rains), Ghost Knight (a/k/a Angela Brown), Lady of the Lab (Sandra Ulbrich Almazon), Sir Elias Gargarin Tavish (a/k/a Karen Elizabeth Brown), Lady Patricia Lynne, and especially Lady Mary (a/k/a Mary Waibel), who put up such a formidable challenge, I was left with no choice but to activate my own personal Torchwood on the final day.

And gramerci (that means "thank you"---I looked it up) to M. Pax and all the other hosts of Realms Faire events. It was a splendid and most excellent good time. All I hoped to gain from this experience was to have some fun and make everyone on the internet just a little bit a'scared of me, but it turns out I get prizes too!  I'll share a picture of my spoils when they arrive.

And again, thank youuuuuu!
