Two weeks ago Renaissance Festival started, and both hubby and I were reminded exactly why we love it out there so much: saw all the old friends we hadn't seen for a year, relaxed instead of the usual 14 hour days, and had a MAJOR karmic bonus on top of it all.
One of the two major drama-causers in our life (there are 3 total, but one left the state some years ago), in fact, THE major drama-causer for me out at Fest, was REMOVED FROM SITE. WOOHOO!!! that bitch is too broke to come out without a job, and after being fired from the JC's she has very little chance of finding something that will pay, becuase she'll be considered untrustworthy by the crafters. Here's the best part: I did absolutely nothing except ignore her for the past 5 years. I never responded to her persistent rumor-spreading, never bothered to confront her face to face, because I knew that she'd screw it up for herself before long. And she did: people who meet her generally like her until they get to know her better, then she's dropped like a rotten diaper. Why? Because she's a drama-queen who seems to need to be the center of attention, even if that means hurting the people around her, and eventually her behavior catches up.
I'm not a good enough person to just say "huh" and move on without giving this downfall some due, because while I pity her for her mentalness, I'm not above feeling vindicated in some small way. And now that she's out of the Festival, at least for now, maybe I can enjoy it without hearing her call out rumor comments every time I walk by. Her blog, by the way, is hilarious, because she's a raving liar and tries desperately to convince everyone else that she's honest. Ugh. And then she wonders why boyfriends drop her as soon as they spend any time together and friends back off after a short time. So yeah, I pity her, but I'm still really happy she won't be out there to harrass me and Hubby this season.
