|1247 - Here, Scurvy...|
Subject: line of a spam that got through my filters today:
Subject: We can sheep you disccounted errection mads gerber
(For the confused, Scurvy is the name of the mascot for foolscap001 and irpooh's Renaissance music group...a little sheep.)
current mood: amused
What's the name of the band?
I've got a pin from Orcs and Trolls that has sheep on it. The words are "Got Scurvy?"
I was kind of confused. (Not a far trip for me.)
It's an understandable confusion since things started with Orckes & Trolles.
There are references in the O&T shows to sea fairing activities and getting scurvy - hense the pins... when Foolscap and I became WE and I started coming along to faire as Schlep and CD wench I needed a sheep ... I found a sheep (as all members of the group do) but mine was not a small one and so I decided he needed a name... and someone suggested Scurvy... when we stopped being part of O&T... Scurvy came with us... the rest is... as they say, history.
Oh, then I think I have met you. I would have been the roadie/water wench for Vagabond.
I forgot to mention that Scurvy is actually half the group—just ask him. (He goes by leg count.)
Scury has more fans than we do... note the subject was "Here Scurvy"... not "Hey Lady A, Keeper of Scurvy who doesn't have an LJ acct, show him this"
But you know what.... we'll take an audience any way we can get em!
Thanks for the Giggles
