Two burbles:

     I found out today that the Minnesota State Fair (which ended yesterday) just set a new record for attendance: 1,790,497! (Previous record was 1,762,976 in 2001.) Thanks in part due to the fact that the weather was fantastic every single day, which has to be a record in itself! Makes me happy, cause I lovses that place and wants it to do well. =)

     And since I haven't quite mentioned it enough yet--mmmmm, am I enjoying my mom's spaghetti that she was so kind to make for me on her visit. Today I polished off the last of the first batch, but it's a cheering thought to know there's more in my freezer for the future!


Emotional Status:

So glad to hear they set a record especially with the way the economy is these days.
It was so much fun to get to go and the weather was so good.

So happy you are enjoying the spaghetti. I hope it last you a while.

Yes! It was a delightful surprise. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. =)

I'll wait a little bit before I thaw out the next batch--at least until it's cooler and more 'spaghetti weather'!

Actually, I don't like large crowds and don't people-watch...but I've been going to the State Fair almost all my life, so my brain seems to have a funny little 'exclusion' box for it! ;D

Heh, I have the same "exclusion" box for the Chinese market downtown when it comes to crowds, just because it's a treasure trove of childhood memories for me. I tell you, there are places that are alive and capable of wheedling their way into your brain to make deals with you like that!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one whose brain works like that! ;)
