We went to the Maryland State Fair today. It was alright. (Note a tinge of disappointment?) I haven't been in a long time, so I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it was a lot more exciting when I was a kid. And much bigger.
Appropriately, I ate enormous quantities of food, all of which was extremely unhealthy and therefore quite tasty. We saw lots of animals, especially the little babies, which made we want to be a vegetarian. Only, after I eat the BBQ pork roast that's in the crock pot right now. So maybe I'll start that tomorrow. Oh, who am I kidding. I've already got this week's menus planned and they're all about meat. Unfortunately, we missed the pig races (featuring Olga, the fastest pig in America!) because they had the location wrong in the guide book and we spent too long ogling the goats which were housed where the pig races were supposed to be. I love goats, stinky, cranky things that they are. I think they're cute. I didn't have funnel cake. That might be some sort of State Fair sin, but I just didn't have room for it. We didn't play any games because I didn't want to win and then have to carry some ginormous Tweety Bird all the way back to the car. I'm not the type to play just for the fun of it. Either I play to win or I don't play at all. Competitive much? Neither did we go on any rides, because Sophie is just too small. So basically it was just us watching the fun. And the people. At a place like that, you realize that it truly does take all kinds. After walking around for 3 hours, the babe was tired and my legs were weary, so home we came. My little bean was asleep before we got out of the parking lot.
I'm not sure exactly what "Aged Cow" is, sounds a bit prejudiced to me, but after all of the food and walking around, that is exactly what I felt like.
Update on the condition of my noggin: Despite Sophie's attempt to do me in with a floor lamp yesterday, I came through with just a small bump and a headache.
