I’m back after a couple weeks off. Did you miss me?
I went to the state fair last friday. It was awesome. But I should have brought an extra $300 so I could ride all the rides. I only got to ride one.
Also, I think fried Dr. Pepper is a myth. We couldn’t find it anywhere. I had a state fair corn dog, and it was really disappointing. But then I had Tornado Taters, which were wonderful. The food is really the best part of a fair. And the rides. And the crooked midway game operators. And the giant stuffed Scooby Doo’s you can win.
I love the fair.
You know what else I love? Political attack ads. Funniest things on tv.
Here’s my current favorite:
I also love local morning soft news shows. The ones that are like Good Morning America, only with local talent (or “talent”).
When I lived in Waco, there was a great morning news show. It was very apparent that the two anchor people had just begun sleeping together. The girl would start blushing every time the guy spoke to her. And then he would sort of nudge her affectionately.
I only wish I’d still lived in Waco when they broke up. I bet that was television gold.
I have a costume party to attend this weekend! I’m not going to tell you what I’m going as, so as to surprise you with pictures.
Stay tuned early next week for a tutorial on how I made my costume.
I had a conversation with my mom earlier today that was almost entirely about baked goods. I’m currently craving every kind of cookie. Recommendations, anyone?
