Because!

That's the reason I gave Takeshi when he asked me "why are we going to the Rennaisance Faire again?"
"Because!"

There really isn't any better answer. I mean, first I tried the "it's an American experience!" tack, but that didn't really pan out when he logically responded "how can it be an american experience when the renaissance didn't even HAPPEN in america?"
..hm, I guess he's got a point.
Well, it's kind of all-american in the way that you can see a bunch of people (some of whom are far too overweight for that sort of thing) wear tights, speak with fake accents, and generally act like a bunch of idiots for a day.
Yay!!!

Well, I think it's high time to do something silly. For the last few weeks we've been doing entirely wholesome activities... going to museums, going to the beach, hiking in the woods, etc. Apparently Takeshi's coworker is an aspiring mountain climbing guide who's next stop is Mnt Kilimanjaro... after he's taking us up Mount Marcy in two weeks, that is. So manly! So wholesome!
I think a fruity dose of Ren Fair next weekend will clean my pallate nicely for the manly adventure to come.

(All things in moderation, you know.)
