    Howdy there everyone.  I will be away for a little bit.  I got an offer for some short term seasonal work that involves some traveling and I don't expect to have regular access to a computer or the internet.  As such Petticoat Pedaler will be quiet until early January after I get back.  Have a fun and safe New Years Eve,  practice good judgment, and I will see you in 2017.

 Tata,

Things I Love Thursday: LARPing In Ohio

Light purple colored background with sand and green aquamarine dots.  Text in darker purple reads Things I Love Thursday.

    I got to go to another wonderful Magischola LARP.  It was exciting and fun and magical.  I got to meet more wonderful people and reconnect with others I had meet last time in the summer.  I got to play a character that I would describe as a bouncing ball  of sunshine.  I also got to express myself both as masculine and feminine without fear of repercussions.

    It was a long way to get there.  And to get back.  Texas to Ohio.  A very long drive.  It was also cold.  Snow and a need for winter wear they do not sell where I live.  But getting to see snow for the first time in 12 years was a lot of fun.

    Well me and my family are off to enjoy another LARP.  These LARPs are really fun and exciting.  If you enjoy table top role-playing, definitely consider trying LARP some time.

    It is Thursday so here I am with another installment of joy.

Bright purple text reading "What's in my make-up" over an image of assorted make-up and a black textured case with metal lining.


    So I saw some videos that gave information about The United States and make up.  Maybe you have seen the videos too.  If you haven’t here is one of them.

    I got to see Moana this week with friends.   It was wonderful.  I'd like to see it again sometime.  It was beautiful and such a beautiful story.  I cried a little.

The Language of Flowers

A narrow clear glass vase with pink carnations in front of the wooden seat planks of a bench.

When I was a kid there was a book in the house that had a section on the language of flowers used in the Victorian period.  I thought it was really cool.  It wasn’t just things like “I love you.”  One of the meanings I remember, though I have long since forgotten the flower that went with it, was, “Your attentions are undesired.”  Who doesn’t want to be able to sass people like that?  


When I became an adult I wanted very much to find a source like that one.  Now it is really easy to find meanings to flowers on the internet, but when I first started looking most of the ones I saw were purely positive.  That isn’t a bad thing.  But I wanted the full range.  After several years I finally found a book.  

Mrs. L. Burke, editor. The language of flowers. Hugh Evelyn, 1963.

     Here are some of the entertaining examples of what The Language of Flowers has to offer.

       It has been an interesting week.  I have done some good work and good stuff.  But I have depression so some times it is hard just to human and this was one of those weeks.  I am hoping some routines will help with that issue.  For now one to some of my happy thoughts.
