July Reigns Supreme With Birthday Wishes

In this the glorious month of July Gallows Humor wishes that the birthdays of our Mischa Malikova and Uncle Rasputin are beyond both their macabre expectations!

All rejoicements upon this Glorious Month of May!

Our very own Marian von Gogu and Kizzy Koriatovitch have recently celebrated the anniversary of being thrust upon this world to bring it endless torment and shenanigations!

Kizzy on the 17th and Marian today!

SRETAN ROĐENDAN!

ALSO!

A belated but heartfelt and rather tasty birthday wish to Kizzy’s other half, Gregor Koriatovitch, who in his blatant display of humbleness didn’t dare make a spectacle of his date of emergence on February 19th!

He’s a cool, delicious scoop of Gypsy spice-cream, that Gregor.

And let’s not forget the savory and majestic Pavelsauce who jumped to the head of the line and claimed January 11th for his debut just to show us all how it’s done, lest we were ignorant of how to properly play the song of his people and perform the required annual celebrationals.

For myself and Uncle Rasputin?  You are going to have to wait until the blazing fire of Summer to pay homage to our dates of birthing because only July has the fortitude to stand up to that level of heat.

ZING!

OH MY STARS IT AMS HAPPENING AGAIN. (Also, We Ams STILL Not Pirates!)

Pinch me I think I’m dreaming because this one’s more fun than a Gypsy ought to be able to have without fear of arrest!

That’s right my little chavales, the much anticipated High Desert Pirate Renaissance Faire which was newly minted last year was such a smashing success – in part due to a few Undead Gypsies I heard it said – that it’s coming back again with:

MORE MUSIC!
MORE BATTLES!
MORE RUM & ALES!

And dare I say…MORE PIRATES!?!

So hitch up your wagons and join us in Victorville! We’ll be sharing stages with our good friends Cutthroat Reef, Adam The Bawdy Juggler, Captain Jack, and Her Majesty’s Minstrel Cycle amongst other fine folks! Also! Our guild, Romale Strigoi, will reportedly be nestled betwixt those scalawags in Port of the Black Sail and those rogues in Sea Wolf so there’s plenty of fun and frolic to be had all weekend long!

Midnight Champagne and Alligator Jerky!

London Bridge Renaissance Faire, you showed us some amazing hospitality and a kick ass time! Let it be known that we: Resolve to control our F-Bomb Tourettes, get a jigglydance lesson for Uncle and buy Pavel some more appropriate footwear for the weather.

WOW WAS IT COLD. BrrrSauce.

Arizonites, you ams hard core!

And? Voice of Faire, announcer guy whose name we probably should have gotten since we made multiple threats to kidnap you and take you on the road with us?

YOU ROCKED IT.

But we did indeed have a grand time with our extended kumpania: Cutthroat Reef, Colette the Bard and Thomas Wood: The Pyro Juggler, from our arrival at the lovely New Year’s Eve Ball where we got to do a song or three and then enjoy some champagne at the stroke of midnight, right up until tear-down at the end of Sunday’s festivities. I don’t recall when we’ve been better mic’d – even Pavel’s cowbell. NEAT! We’re ams all of the spoiledface and ruinedsauce now!

Also? We even ate Alligator Jerky!

(It was quite interesting and new which is a rare event when you are an undead Gypsy type who has been wandering the world for hundreds of years…so well done, House of Jerky merchant guy and his kid!)

Lake Havasu, London Bridge Renaissance Faire, we look forward to being in you again next year if you’ll have us! ❤
