Thanks for your interest in helping out with ceremonies. I must admit that
when I put out the request I did not expect to get much interest, but in
fact I received quite a few replies. So many replies that I'm looking to
make a team of people to spread the work around.

I'd like to do some phone interviews in the next couple of weeks as the
next step. In order to make that process smoother, I've got a few questions.

What's your phone number?

What's a good time to call you?

What are your favorite periods in medieval history? If I create a team,
I'll want to know what you like to work on so I can make this more fun for

What medieval literature have you read well? One of the things I have been
doing with ceremonies is offering period suggestions from literature to
prompt the speakers, so I'm wanting an idea of what your background is.

Can you read/write any language besides English? It might be cool to add
touches of other languages in some ceremonies, so I'm just going to keep
track of some of these resources.

Which languages?

I think that's a good enough list to get us started.

Thanks again for all of your interest in the position. If you have
questions, please email me or text me at 3164610934.

Have a great day.
