Drinking beer and pondering about "Faire"
So, I was pondering on something The Count had said. How often can we use the word "Faire" in words..
I.e.


Faire thee well . . .
Fairemily
Fairemiliar


Hmmm.....

You've been drinking a lot of beer because you pondered a whole lot!

RE: Drinking beer and pondering about "Faire"
I notice more often than not how people let faire influence their mundane lives when they add the -e to fair or throw out old English words like colour.

I have actually used the British spelling of colour, armour, etc. since I was in high school.
back then, I did it for two reasons:

1. the teachers COULD NOT correct me, because it was right...
(typical teen defiance)

and

2. that IS the way the word is spelled, we've simply changed it in America.
Why? Is there a good reason? No. So, I used the right one.

Now, when you do something long enough...
it sticks. So I've always used it since.

RE: Drinking beer and pondering about "Faire"
Well, they used it in the atrocious "All's Faire" . . . why not elsewhere?


I love how the "e" differentiates the State Fair from the Bay Area RenFaire here in the Tampa area, as they tend to overlap.

Someone says "I'm going to the Faire this weekend", we know what he or she is talkin' about.

Also . . . we, as Rennies, tend to drop "the" from the sentence. How often have you said: "I'm going to Faire"
Not THE Faire
just "Faire"

One tends not to do that with the State or County Fair

RE: Drinking beer and pondering about "Faire"
I drop the "the" for emphasis on where I'm going. It's a location, to me, not just an event.
