It’s Fair Day!

Now here is a thing about the Alaska State Fari and me.

I don’t like it.

I have lived in Alaska my entire life, which means I have been to the fair quite a number of times.

But to be honest, you really only need to go once because it is always exactly the same.

And I mean EXACTLY the same. 

For instance, this is what you will always see. 

Somebody grew a giant vegetable.

A bunch of kids brought the animals that they raised by hand and will soon murder so that mama can make her special ham with mint jelly for supper.

There are booths selling the kinds of foods that your dietician would throw themselves on to keep you from eating it, and of course, rickety ass rides, held together with bobby pins and duct tape, which might induce vomiting so that the fair food does not clog all of you arteries later that night. 

Been there, done that, threw up in that trash can over by the Tilt-a-Whirl. 

I used to say that the only reason to go to the fair is if you have young children or a new girlfriend. 

But today I will have to amend that to also include a pushy daughter who wants to do “Alaska things” with her father and offers to pay for everything. 

So anyway, off to the fair I go. In fact, I am there right now, which means I may be a little slow in publishing your comments. 

Sorry for any inconvenience, but hey, everybody needs to get out of the house once in a while. 

Right now I just have to figure out what the hell an “Elephant Ear” is why the hell anybody would want to eat one? 

P.S. I did not see Sarah at the fair, but I did see this. 

Now, I just have to unsee it.

    On second thought, give her hell. She deserves it.

    G. An elephant ear is a large stretch of bread dough cooked in hot deep grease and covered with sugar. Have fun eating that. Yes. Was wondering why I saw two Bruce Ohr reports. Thought the Russians infiltrated your new site. I hope you have fun with family at the fair. You are right. The one in Fairbanks is also predictable. Teenagers have a heydey smoking weed on the fringes of the activity, women cart around screaming children who are overwhelmed and should be in their nice quiet home. I had to watch my 14 year old this year and sat on the sidelines watching all the activity. People went to the fair one Sunday night because of their boredom, and it rained cats and dogs but people were determined to have fun and they did. It’s a break. And those big vegetables? Wow! I want to grow something that big next year! You have fun G, then get back to work because although they eulogize John McCain to the high heavens today we still are stuck with that orange tweeting bastard in the White House trying to dub himself king. And Putin is licking his chops as he gets richer and more powerful with his evil plan to be world leader.

    There will be plenty of clowns on hand. That Palin klan is getting larger each year with child support recipients.

    Puke on her shoes. She will never ask you to go again.

    Sarah turned down invitation to speak at McCain’s service so she could take Piper to the fair.

    I think some of the Palin’s are there today although I am not sure b/c Bristol may not update her IG in real time. But maybe something interesting will happen like a brawl or a baby conceived. Ha Ha. I love fairs and festivals about every 3-5 years. I am actually about due.

      All Bristol does is all she is capable of doing, that is, she poses for the pictures. Someone else chooses them, writes the ad copy, probably dresses her. Think about it, someone actually has this job to pretend to be a cool teenager.

    Be careful! According to Bristol’s Instagram page she and her sisters are at the fair. She doesn’t say if they are visiting or being exhibited.

    I did not see any Palins, but I did smell shit and saw a few pigs, so it was almost like running into them.

    My daughter was apparently trying to get me to scream by making me ride all of the craziest rides at the fair.

    I disappointed her in that regard, but if she had been trying to make me dizzy or get me nauseous for a bit, well in that she certainly succeeded.
