sensory overload


Better late than Never.  
Well, I am 28 and I've lived in the charming state of Maryland my entire life.  But for some reason, this weekend was the very first time that I visited the state fair.  
Here's my problem with the fair:  how can you trust a ride that was assembled one weekend and then disassembled the next weekend?  Come on people... it doesn't seem like the safest bet.  It's kind of like assembling your own furniture.  There always seem to be a few screws left over.  
Not to mention there weren't many food options for a vegan:  fried dough (which apparently is different from funnel cake), fried oreos, fried twinkies, french fries, hotdogs, pizza, turkey legs, and BBQ.  Umm, no thanks.
I'm not sure I will ever take part in the fair festivities again, but I did actually have a nice evening.  Gavin Degraw put on a free concert so, we just took a blanket and relaxed a bit.

Last time I went to the state fair... I got off the ferris wheel and someone hacked a loogie and it landed on my head. It's one of the most disgusting things I've ever washed out of my hair. Just found your blog and website lady. Love your work!
