Chicken Charlie Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) (55* d) RE: Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) 19 Jun 01

Yo, Mousethief. It "could." Then again--I'm not SCA but when I do living history it's the same schtick. By the time I take what I learned in three years of grad school and four years of military experience, tricked out with a couple grand worth of period or recreated equipment--I ain't "playing" nothin'. My #1 and #2 personas were both selected in part because their military rank & situation was parallel to mine, not because I saw a movie once fer Chrissake. IMO it's possible to stand your definition of actual personality on it's head: seems to me who I chose to model to the world has a hell of a lot more to do with who I am than your criteria. Somebody else gave me my name; economic constraints determine where I live; and my wife's medical condition determines the number of children I have (i.e., zip). I chose none of that at the great cosmic, "What'll you have?" counter. But I choose to be Capt. Benjamin West, Commanding C Company, 4th California Infantry. Which makes him a much more valid me, I think.

Scuse me for being in a somewhat scratchy mood this PM. Ijuts have been nibbling at me all week. Present company not included, perforcely. :), sir.
