A Fair Report — hangin’ at the Kitsap county fair

In case you didn’t know it, Kitsap county had its annual fair last week. Such fun! I am here to report a few new items that I and my little 7 year old assistant tried out.

The first big thing that caught our eye was the Walk on Water ride. It was a huge, blow-up pool of water with giant, clear plastic balls for you to get zipped into and live your own best hamster life.

Here’s our footage:

I almost dashed in myself maintained my grown-up demeanor and totally regret it now watched from the sidelines, recording the event for you, dear readers.

I did, however, partake in the grossest of all edible things — this freak of food:

Yes, I ate it, in all its greasy glory.

And however nasty you think that looks, it tasted worse.

stickymushygreasysugaryblandslimy – yeah, that about sums it up.

I agree with Angela that a little savory added to this burger might have made it slightly less disgusting better.

Naturally, showing an unprecedented lack of foresight, we followed up this eating bonanza with some fun, circular, swirling barf-a-rama rides.

Here’s one that was new (at least to us) this year, a hang-glider ride.

The great part about this ride is that you’re already lying flat, face down, which might come in handy for you if you have just eaten one of those donut burgers. *Ahem*

All in all, we had a blast, as usual, at one of our favorite annual events. Hope you did, too! What’d you love? Hate?

Dancing Through Kitsap!

If you know me, then you know I like dancing. But this is not about me dancing… And if you know me, you may be aware of my adoration of coffee. You may (ormaynot) also know I frequent Central Market… I also adore Poulsbo Perk and the standard-issue Starbucks here in the Northwest…aaaand the bevy over other coffee sources we have in our fair county…

But I needed basil. I get my basil from Central. And also my wheat grass. But I don’t juice my wheat grass. I make cute gifts with my wheat grass… and take blurry pics of said cute gifts…

fun with wheatgrass!

I digress.

I had to get some basil because I am on this mozzerella/feta/tomato/pesto grilled sandwich/pita kick, and the spinach wasn’t doin’ it for me. This warm melty goodness called for basil… yadda, yadda, yadda… from Central Market.

Where was I headed with this *scratching head*…

Well, there I was at the coffee shop there in Central Market (getting my double tall mocha with *just* a splash of raspberry), and my friend Sarah (may I call you “friend”, Sarah? Too bad. It’s out there. You’ll have to deal with the fall-out, I’m not takin’ it back. Nope. Are you on Facebook???) Aaanywho, Sarah said, “Hey. Have you seen the video on YouTube, ‘Where the Hell is Matt?‘” I was all, “Yeah. U-huh…”

She went on to tell me that her friend Rachel made a “Where the Hell is Rachel” video, but instead of traveling the world like Matt did – she (with the help of her camera-man brother Tristan) danced all around Kitsap… I was all, “I gotta see it!”

So I went home and got onto the Google and found the video. I want to share it with you, my fellow Kitsapians! Let’s watch Rachel travel Kitsap in December… dancing in all the places we’ve seen… on a trademark cloudy day… Enjoy! I know you will!
