Holy crap, Medieval Times is awesome. And the food was really good too!! <3

I recognized one of the guys as someone from faire -- ended up being one of the musketeers from last year. Medieval Times actually trained him out to ride horses to work there. Thats pretty fantastic! He said theres about 17 "knights" in rotation, but he gets stuck working more shifts than a lot of them, and they train six hours a day. I also learned that RenFaire hires jousters out of a couple of particular named jousting circuits in the US. Alas, but these jousting groups and casting at Medieval Times are terribly misogynistic....

"It's not misogyny, it's historical accuracy!"
Okay then buddy, why are you wearing a cotton t-shirt underneath your chain mail?

If they wanted hot girls jabbing eachother with sticks, they have terabytes (each) of girl-on-girl porn, thank you very much.
