I love the state fair:-) It is always so much fun. We went yesterday....walked all over, ate junk and looked at strange and wonderful things. I saw my earring lady, and bought 7 pair of earrings. (to be honest, 3 pair were on one card) We did a wheel of fortune at one booth....Chris got a trowel for the garden, and I got a cute egg whisk)
There is a baseball exhibit this year, as well as a civil rights exhibit. Its nice to get a little 'edumacation' along with your food on a stick. Chris' foot was bothering him pretty bad about 5 pm, so he left and didn't stay to see Rain play. He did talk to Steve and Casey for a few minutes though. Damn plantar fascitis....... I wish I could get him to take ibuprofen. He came home and iced his heel.
What a show the guys put on though! It was awesome! Oops....must back up though.
About 90 minutes before the show started (the guys couldn't set up or do sound check early...another band was on stage) JB realised that there was a piece of equipment he needed.....RK forgot to bring it (along with enough guitar stands) They sent Casey and me (and M) to Guitar Center to get said products......they didn't have the reverb whateveritwas, but we did get 5 guitar stands....and some batteries they needed. S called while we were comnig back......they also didn't have a piano stool! Oh well....he made do....by that time, it was only about 30 minutes to showtime, and Guitar Center was closed!
Mishaps and missing equipment aside, it was a fun night. I wore my "Liberal, and proud of it" button for a while, until J said *don't touch me*. I of course, touched him. Lots. Later he was tesing me....'you, you....liberal'. I just smiled and told him 'yeah, but you love me anyway'
I must say.....I am more than happy he is out from under another's thumb. He is back to being 'my' J. Well, not mine per se, but they way he used to be. Sweet, funny and loving.
Oh man....gotta go watch the Olympics. I hear the Russian wench fell off the uneven bars, and stormed out of the hall. Geeze....unsportsmanlike much?
