Bored at the Fair

My third time here already and it's getting old. But I found the cable place and they have the 'Net. Heh heh. I should be over at the Republican booth but there's too many people there already and they took all the chairs. I'll go back eventually. In the meantime, a summary:

Sights: It's Senior Citizen Day. Although my campaign manager denies it, our primary opponent Andre has cuter stickers. The Dems have this hilarious fan-mask thing of our State Treasurer- that's why you go into politics, to get your face on a fan. I saw an old high school friend of mine at the Stand Up for Life place. They just turned Casper on where I am now.

Sounds: J.K. said he was going to end up in an argument with someone. I told him he should, I was bored of listening to the stupid dancing cats singing about 911 in the community cop booth across. And Deputy Bill, the puppet who comes on Saturday mornings- oh, joy. There's some church band a few down, mostly tambourines. And a random merchant dude who keeps yelling, "Candy!"

Smells: We're situated next to this salsa maker guy who keeps chopping onions. I haven't been to see the animals yet- all those bunnies and cows and horses in one building. J.K. said he didn't want to smell like the fanimals.

Tastes: I ate two hours ago and I'm already hungry again. I can't remember the last time I had a corn dog. I had an elephant ear the other day with Janna and oh, the fried buttery sugary goodness. And the candy apples- who cares if I get 'em all over my face? They have blue raspberry.

Feelings: Was about to fall asleep if I sat there any longer. Same with the log cabin lady I'm currently next to, who has a laptop. I want one. But I amused the cable guy who came and read over my shoulder, he said to come buy cake. And I have decided men are lucky, there's never lines to their restrooms. My knees hurt cause I'm standing here but at least I'm not bored anymore.

If you'd ever ventured into a men's public restroom, you'd know why there's no line to get in there.

Did the onions not make you cry-hence the sense?

One of the universities where I teach is 90% men. I never have to wait in line at the restrooms :) Love it!

What kind of food is an elephant ear?

And why is blue considered the color of raspberries? The things come red, yellow and (I think)dark purple.

I love corn dogs! I haven't had an elephants ear but I have heard of them and would love to try them.

That was a great post. I haven't been to the fair in a while. I do love corn dogs. I have been in a men's washroom, I snuck a peek once and saw someone I shouldn't have. Maybe I'll blog it.

Darlene, if you peeked into a "men's washroom", you still don't know what I'm talking about.

There ain't NO "washing" going on in there...
