State Fair Recap, Saucy Detectives, and (Flavor) Saver

I tried to ask the man about the bung hole. But he was busy with another man's bung hole. And because she deserves it...Angela Lansbury.

Well it has been years and years and years since my last post. At least according to my mother. So where have I been? Well let me tell you. Nowhere. I have been busy at work and Surprise By Designing the roommate's house. I have been running. Yes running. Can you believe it? Why no one told me of this cheap therapy years ago I'll never understand! And I was AT THE MINNESOTA STATE FAIR!!!! 

I know it is eons past when I should have posted this. But given my mother is the only reader and she wasn't planning on hitting up the Great Minnesota Get Together this year I got lazy. And maybe sucked into a horrid love affair with Murder, She Wrote on Netflix. That Angela Lansbury is a saucy detective.  

So let's quick talk about The Minnesota State Fair. As many of you might recall I was in an abusive relationship with the fair. Or at least in a relationship with someone who abused my first few real experiences at the fair. Like Meredith Baxter would have to play me in my Lifetime Fair Movie. It wasn't until I was in a safe house with my roommate did I know the fair could be fun. And this year proved to be the bees knees (God save the bees). 

I was accompanied this year by my usual State Fair Guidance Counselor, his sister and her husband. There was mild judgement from the brother in law as he has WI blood in him. Poor thing. But great times were had. Hell they brought floss. That is friggin' Girl Scout prepared for the fair.  

This year I can safely say I had no NEW food on a stick. In fact, I was glad to hear that only four of the 20+ new items were on a stick. I went with a small list of things to try. Really wanting to just have a good time and take it all in. That's not to say I didn't eat. I'm still picking corn kernels out of my beard.  As Baby Mama says, "bigger the beard closer to God."

Quick recap before you dive in to the pictures. I am already looking forward to next year. It doesn't have to be about all new food on a stick. Or walking so much you mildly chafe (okay that happens every year). But it does have to involve some sort of meat in my mouth. 

Enjoy the pictures. Judge away. And tell me what I missed! I need to try something new next year. But just not everything new.

As always there is more than just food at the Minnesota State Fair. As always there is a camera to capture it

1. She is the top lounge chair salesperson in the region. All business. Save for the party in the back. 2. The Rainbow Kids are the gay 4H kids. I have not missed this show in 3 years. 3. There was a deer stand just to the left of the ladies.

This poor soul on the left thought it was Coachella. And this Sequined Goddess brought in her own tallboy. I gave her my number.

Blue Man Group clearly had budget cuts. And the couple on the right is my future. And I own it. I'm the one in the pink hat. My roommate will be using the cane. Off camera are our friends in scooters.
