And no, I didn't buy it to wear to the Oktoberfest. I avoid that event like I'd avoid a plague of locusts mixed with vitriol.
It was time for me to finally own one. I haven't had one since I was a child and since we had an event in July where it just *fit* for us to show up in Dirndl (all three of us ladies who manned the booth at the convention), I finally bought one. It's a long one, as befitting my age and station. ;P
Please ignore the fact that I'm not wearing shoes - I just wanted to show off my newest possession. ^^
