So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

Another Thing I'm Getting Too Old For

Went to the Texas State Fair today. Rode the Gravitron (they call it something like Spaceship 2000, but it's the old Gravitron ride). Big mistake. Managed not to get sick, but it was close.

Also ate many deep-fried things (which I'm almost too old for, but not quite yet). Deep-fried ice cream, coated in chocolate sauce and Pop-Rocks, and topped with a Twizzler? OK. Chicken-fried bacon? Not bad, but needed cream gravy. Deep-fried grilled cheese sandwich? Awesome.

Other highlights: U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps and a kid-oriented science show. Neither was deep-fried, but both were very good, nonetheless.

If you're in the neighborhood, you really should check out the fair. (Parking in Remote Lot 13 entitles you to a free train ride to the fair and back; lifting your hands and shouting "wheeeeeee!!!" is optional.)
