You know, the horn that's mine that I also toot? Today, I'm tooting my own horn because yesterday I was inducted into The Order of the Fleur d'AEthelmearc for having "accumulated much merit by carving wood, and moreover making cords and clothing in the manner of the land of Yamato." Yes, it's another SCA thing. "The Fleur" is an "Award of High Merit", and entitles me to refer to myself as "The Honorable Lord Ishiyama Gen'tarou Yori'ie" within the society. It does not entitle me to ask them to write that on my cup at the coffee shop.
The scroll was illuminated by The Honorable Lady Ismay Ponde, and the wording on the scroll was composed and translated by Count Jehan de la Marche. The original scroll is about 16 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
And let that be a lesson to you! Always dress up for court, or that will be the court where they make you stand up in front of everybody. Sigh. I should have T-shirts printed with, "If I'd known I was going to be called to court, I would have worn something nicer" on the back.
