    Fall Festival/Bazaar 2009

    [​IMG]

    Upon arrival, I noticed a smorgasbord just packed with some of EM Seppo's and EM Pallando's favorite treats, including Sauteed Eyeballs, Freshly Chopped Finger Salad, Sliced Brain and Leg of Ettin.

    As the opening time approached, the area started to fill up with people who had stalls and those attending the festivities.

    Robert the Ranger arrived announcing there was a crisis that needed to be resolved before the Fall Festival/Bazaar could continue. Robert informed us that all the Harvest Wine had been stolen and we would need to go defeat the thieves and get the wine back for the festivities.

    Robert the Ranger transported the crowd to where the stolen Harvest Wine was being held, and a mighty battle ensued:

    Poor little Billy Scrantin had never before seen such mayhem and ran to hide in the trees.

    Meanwhile, the warriors were gaining ground on liberating the Harvest Wine from the fallen thieves.

    Once the wine was recovered and everyone was back at the Skara Brae Faire Grounds, EM Seppo and EM Pallando started the fall festivities.

    As always, people lined up to have their fortunes told by The Widow.

    The night was wonderful. Though real life intruded and I wasn't able to attend every event, I enjoyed what I did attend immensely. Thank you again, Sara, for an awesome write up. We're just so fortunate to have all of the reporters we do on Baja. Every one of you is worth your weight in gold. *curtsy*

    Has there been any news on the house decorating contest?

    Would be nice if they put out the runes so those of us that couldnt stay to the end of the Bazaar could now visit the houses before the decorations are taken down

    A runebook that has runes to the decorated houses is locked down on the steps of the EM's reward hall.

    I checked out the Housing forum just so I could see your house, Voluptuous. I burst out laughing when I saw those flying monkeys. Being one who grew up seeing The Wizard of Oz, it brought back a lot of memories. One of my older sisters was terrified by that scene and since she was someone who used to like torturing me, I liked those monkeys. I called my hubby in so he could see the creativity of your home. Such talent, woman! Awesome job. *wild applause*
