Let me wedge in a quick point of view.

As some might have noticed, I have any number of strongly held, usually
feminist, opinions that I will not hestitate to explain.  I am *not*
"pretty".  Add to this I refuse to waste my time with the boorish and
inarticulate.  Also, I was at school for a reason, I wanted to learn and
do well.  This really does make for a nearly non-exsistant social life
both attitude and time wise.  When I did have time, I did prefer to spend
it with the SCA, not only because I like the research and ambiance, but
because I met some really worthwhile people there, and the ratio of
worthwhile people has always been consistantly high.  To my utter
amazment, I met interesting and articulate men that would bother to talk
to me and seemed to enjoy my company (totaly new concept)!  I figured I
would eventually find a husband in the SCA because that's where the
higher-quality men were.  Of course, my big and wonderful surprise showed
up, and guess what?  He joined the SCA of his own volition.

Advent tidings,
