This brings to the forefront a question I've had for years- Do people REALLY
hate court as much as this?  And if so, WHY?  I love court.  I've even been
called up into it a few times (for contest awards, and the sheep->shawl
thing at crown, but not actual awards), and I didn't find it embarrassing at
all.  Rather spiff (or wlonk, even), in fact.  Even when I'm not called up
into court, I find I quite like it.  It's fun.  It's meant to be fun.  It's
a bit of pageantry, ostentatious display, whatever.  But I haven't yet found
myself to be bored by court.  Even when it lasts for more than 10 minutes.
I've even been known to think that some courts are too long.  And I'm
working on 7 years a scadian.
