Lee's ghost re-born

um..I love you? Lee for: Please don't kill me!

You Might Be a Civil War Reenactor - IF If your $20,000 car sits out in the weather so your $200 tent can stay in the garage...you might be a reenactor If you drive by some open land and think, "What a great place for a Battle!"... If most of the clothes you own went out of style over 135 years ago... If you've made a vehicle purchase decision based on how well it can accomodate your tent poles... If you've ever uttered the phrase, "only 68 more days til our next event"... If sleeping in a leaky tent in the rain and mud is your idea of a fun Saturday night... If you've ever worn wool when the temperature tops 100 repeatedly... If there are half-completed sewing projects decorating your furniture... If you've ever made a career decision based on its impact on your reenacting weekends... If your friends refuse to attend any historic movie dramas with you... If you can spot 100% wool at 30 yards... If your kids can correct their history teachers... If your mailman is confused as to what rank you hold in the reserves... If you have been asked at a gas station if you're Amish... If your birthday and Christmas list reads like a quartermaster's request for supplies... If you believe that your brogans are the most comfortable shoes that you own...you might be a reenactor. 9/21/2008 #2,971

XD That's hilarious. Here's one to add: If you've ever been told repeatedly that you were born in the wrong era...if you've ever begun to say "Today in the Civil War" and told to shut up...you might be a Civil War reenactor.

I won't kill you yet, I guess. XD

I love it. The "half completed sewing projects", "wool in 100 degrees", and "Amish" are my faves. And the "laid under canvas". That cracked me up.

Too long. "If you see a girl in a belly shrit and picture her in hop skirts you might be a reenactor" (Yes, I really have :D))

If you believe that your brogans are the most comfortable shoes that you own...you might be a reenactor. Is spot on!

I should introduce the Civil War to my Dutch Michigander boys. Then I can get some tall Johnnies and Billies. XD

You're a hoot, Lee. A little hoot, but still a hoot. XD

Got a question for ya, Sissi. Which one looks more like Margriet to you?

Tie between the first and the last. Definitely not the second one.

9/21/2008 #2,985
DaCivilWarBear

Mmkay. I'm kinda leaning towards the first one.

Lee, you got an opinion?

9/21/2008 #2,986
Lee's ghost re-born

On what? *sets up seein ladder*

9/21/2008 #2,987
DaCivilWarBear

XD What my WWII char Margriet looks like. *points at above links*

9/21/2008 #2,988
Tatianolishka

Yeah, the first one looked closest to what I imagined.

Gyah, why is finding a scholarship so damn hard?

9/21/2008 #2,989
DaCivilWarBear

I'd refer you to a book I got but it's for the SAT, so...

9/21/2008 #2,990
Lee's ghost re-born

I haven't come in contact with her so, wouldn't know..

I took the act last year so :P

9/21/2008 #2,991
Tatianolishka

Nah, the problem is that I've gotta find Canadian scholarships. I have my heart set on going home, and if I get the chance to I'll take it with the biggest smile in the world.

9/21/2008 #2,992
DaCivilWarBear

I have MY heart set on Michigan. :D

9/21/2008 #2,993
Tatianolishka

And I'll bet you're gonna kick some serious butt to head there. XD

9/21/2008 #2,994
Lee's ghost re-born

Can't wait tell colloge. My town is full of jerks and dumbasses.

9/21/2008 #2,995
DaCivilWarBear

I can't wait to get out of this state, man.

9/21/2008 #2,996
Lee's ghost re-born

*hugs* soon! Soon we be in va or Gettysburg as profs.

9/21/2008 #2,997
DaCivilWarBear

:D That's my incentive.

I'm nervous about the SAT, though. I got a projected 32, but the studying...*shudders*

9/21/2008 #2,998
Tatianolishka

*senses instant attraction imminent* XD

Then I'll come down on an exchange & take one of your courses. Sound good?

9/21/2008 #2,999
DaCivilWarBear

Sure! I won't be hard to miss. Any student will tell you: "Prof. Hekman? Oh, she's the tall one with the shawl in the middle of summer and a pencil stuck in her Victorian hairstyle." XD
