wildfeather Went to England during the reign of King Edward III. Lovely stroll in the royal forest. Came across a beautiful lady.. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 00:59:29

wildfeather She was wearing 'a hood made of brown scarlet studded with 154 stars of pearls bed trimmed with gold.' I stood and stared.. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:01:48

wildfeather She saw me staring & studied me closely.I only just recovered myself in time to curtsey,all the way down to the ground \(._.) #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:07:59

wildfeather Turns out I was creating rather a stir.. because I had a jeweled brooch on my cloak. Sumptuary Laws said I couldn't have any.. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:10:05

wildfeather But my sister's fancy-dress box had a red velvet cloak with no clasp. I'd had to nick one from her jewelry box to hold it on.. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:12:12

wildfeather She asked me if I was royalty. Said the 1st thing I thought of: "In my country no man is considered greater in status than I" #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:14:52

wildfeather "Then you are!" "Well, no man is considered lesser, either.." (Well, I had to be truthful) She was most perplexed. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:17:03

wildfeather The whole president thing took a while to explain. Especially the bit about him being an ordinary guy, & kicked out after 8yrs #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:19:32

wildfeather But she said that England had once had a tradition for a leader in similar vein: Primus Inter Pares 'first amongst equals' #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:21:22

wildfeather I'm not sure she quite got the gist of it, she seemed convinced by the end of it we were a nation of blue-blooded millionaires #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:24:04

wildfeather Anyway, I'm off to see her husband. Hang about, ... yikes! That's the King!! Er, er.. how does one address the King of England?#temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:27:38

wildfeather Let's see now.. Hollywood has taught me um, don't look him in the eye.. um.. bow? Um.. offer him my sword? I dont have a sword #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:34:45

wildfeather Ok..so, turns out that was all wrong. I er, spent a nice rat-gnawing vacation in the royal gaol. Great food, plenty of company #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:45:40

wildfeather Here's what happened: They confiscated my cell at the gatehouse "He who comes to a house, look he bring nothing dangerous." #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:48:11

wildfeather When you enter the king's presence,the chamberlain announces you and you doff your cap. I did that right -er except I'm a lady #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:50:22

wildfeather Ladies keep their hair covered! heh.. Hollywood, all ye flowing golden medieval tresses, ye hath lied to me.. [King: Shock] #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:52:17

wildfeather You don't just bow/curtsey once, you bow upon entering. Then you are led to the middle of the floor & bow again. And wait.. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:55:55

wildfeather And wait.. and wait.. and... But oh boy do you get in trouble if you let your eyes wander the room. or keep them lowered #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:57:41

wildfeather Medieval court 3: Hollywood 0. #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:58:47

Canageek @wildfeather Might I recommend somewhere safer next time? I had a GREAT time last #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:59:28

wildfeather Well, he summoned me forward eventually, and I curtseyed again :) (My knees are getting creaky!) Then everybody sort of LOOKED #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:01:22

wildfeather twas like they were all waitin for summat,& I was all flustered,so I said [best shakespearian voice]"God bid ye good e'en Sire"#temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:04:28

wildfeather So apparently you don't talk to the king, even in greeting til he permits you to speak.. an' what they was waitin for was: #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:07:20

wildfeather TWO MORE FREAKIN BOWS! Sheesh! An' iff'n you don't look him in the eye you're dishonest, an' if you turn and run -like I did #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:08:47

wildfeather when things went belly-up. You are Teh Height Of Rudeness Modum™! /hoitytoity-voice. So er.. yeah. Oh hai gaol! :D #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:11:03

Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:13:39

wildfeather She spoke on my behalf herself at the Court of the King's Bench [That's like, Old Bailey&the High Court&Court of Human Rights] #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:24:12

wildfeather Which was well nice of her.Specally since da mouldy maslin bread(Rye+wheat+dust scrapins)was sendin me tummy all up spew creek #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:28:38

wildfeather Said I was sry an' all, explained that where I come from, noone's ever visited this country, & we only hear about its customs #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:32:04

wildfeather from writing&pictures,&,well,to be blinkin frank,we'd got em all topsy-turvy! Was expectin some nasty burning-at-stake verdict #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:35:44

wildfeather But apparently they don't do that in England, not in this century. Medieval Britain 8: Hollywood 0 #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:37:34

wildfeather Ate some umble pie as penance. Served up on a tourt [big chunk of wholegrain bread as a plate] Tasted quite nice...for innards #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:41:19

wildfeather Sheesh, Mark Twain never had it so bad... #temporaltues

wildfeather #temporaltues As he was accompanying me back to @Wendell_Howe's time machine, he tripped on his ermine-lined tunic. Oo er misses!
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:55:17

wildfeather Well I dived, didn't I! [King: look like thunder] Me:"Zoiks! I ain't supposed to touch you am I? I saw you falling and.." #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:56:59

wildfeather "..wanted to spare you injury, and. oh crumbs I'm not supposed to be talking either til you speak to me, &.." *fingers on lips*#temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 02:58:36

wildfeather He said something sing-songy in latin. I was all confuzzled cos I don't speak it THAT good. But didn't wanna say nuffink #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:00:51

wildfeather So I just stood there, like a lemon, with me fingers over me mouth, tryin not to insert me foot into it again! :-S #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:02:17

rharron #TemporalTues June 11, 1962 is a rainy, dreary day. Waiting here, wet, to bust the gang out of Alcatraz - they'll never look for us in 2057.
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:02:26

wildfeather Luckily he repeated it in a lingo I DID understand "they will bear u up on their hands,lest u strike ur foot against a stone" #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:05:12

wildfeather "If it is good enough for Our Gracious Lord, I shall permit thee to be mine own angel in this case, a king must obey The King" #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:07:19

wildfeather "Thy customs are alien to this Court, but the desire to show respect is universal. Even if the execution of it isn't." #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:08:56

wildfeather (think dat counted as a polite dismissal-Or rather A Royal "Clear Off"!Anyway,I hopped in @Wendell_Howe's timemachine,sharpish)#temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:12:07

Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:22:42

wildfeather Before I went, Queen handed me a neat pile of linen.. Apparently she'd been most distressed by one of my descriptions of home #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:23:29

wildfeather she'd asked me about all sorts.Paper had been the hardest to explain.I'd resorted to 'vellum'-at which she winced dramatically #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:25:54

wildfeather So she gives me this pile,& I'm all "What's it for?"&she puts a hand on my arm,&smiles like 1 well used to another sorta piles #temporaltues
Wed, 17 Feb 2010 03:27:53

wildfeather and says... "To wipe your nether end." #temporaltues
