Brick ovens and Medieval Times

Summer is starting to scare me.

It's going to be HOT and my particular building is exposed brick. Which is really nice - but the sun sets on my side and heats everything up. Suddenly my domicile isn't a room with a view - but an evil brick oven out to kill me. At night you can actually feel the walls still radiating heat. And you are still cooking at midnight. The air conditioner is from the early 80s and not in the best condition either...

So I have been enjoying this June gloom. But we are nearing July and I just know I am in for it :)

I have discovered you can download vh1's "best week ever" on itunes for free. Definitely worth it. Cracks me up every time.

I went to Medieval Times about a week ago? Maybe 2... it was HILARIOUS. You sort of know you are in for something campy and all that - but the place is fully aware of their cheese factor - and it makes you love them for it. People get absolutely PLASTERED. At the end of the event they offer dancing complete with disco ball and DJ. You have to wade through rump shaking with the Knights of the Royal Order to exit. Probably my favorite moment. You also witness some of the worst acting ever. I wanted to put the princess out of her misery with all the stinky line readings.

It's so wrong - it's beautiful.

Oh yeah - they serve half a chicken, 1 baked potato, and 1 (count em - 1) rib. No silverware (because it's "authentic"). The "wench" made a special point to announce you only get 1 napkin... so sneak some in when you go.... ;)
