Since I can't make it to the LA County Fair this year (sad) Katie, Liz and I ventured into Orange County to try out their fair. There wasn't ice cold chocolate milk or a Big Yellow Slide. I'd give it a B-.
But it did have other fair type stuff that made up for it.
Wee Baby Piglets!!!!
Folks, it took all my will power to not leap over the fence and shove one in my purse.
Famous works of art made out of food!
The Vegetable Mona Lisa:
And David out of Butter
There was also the Birth of Venus done up in white chocolate.
And here's a question. Did any of you know that brussel sprouts grow like this:
We saw the sign and had to go in for a closer look.
We split a deep fried Klondike Bar (now the song is stuck in your head, isn't it. What would you do-oo-oo...).
And I found a sun hat that fits my head. I know. Miracle.
I didn't leave with a spa or a speed boat or a piglet but I'd still call it a good day at the fair.
In other somewhat relatable news (that being Things to Do In Orange County) - For those of you locals (or soon to be visiting these parts) who want to see World of Color at Disney's California Adventure I will do you a solid and say don't waste your time. Katie and Lindsay risked their lives and eternal salvation to get us fast passes to it yesterday and then we waited for what seemed like days and endured much of that time crammed next to a pack of smelly Italian teenage boys just to get what we thought was a decent spot on the viewing deck, only to have it marred by freakishly tall people with children on their shoulders. The bits that we could see were lame.
