NC State Fair 2007

This posting is a bit delayed because I had intended to add pictures of my wonderful experience at the fair but my camera and computer and me, as the third-party instigator, got into a fight and I lost the pictures. I have just now gotten over it and forgiven technology for losing my pictures.

Jericho had never been to the NC State Fair (!!) so I took a half day off of work and went on military appreciation day (because we got free admission thanks to Jericho's National Guard status). We, thankfully, didn't ride any rides but toured around all the exhibits and looked at all the freaky people. (Do they dress like that normally or does it all just come out for the fair???) Oh, and let's not forget the food! I had forgotten how food-focused the fair is. I ate the following artery-clogging items: Nathan's hotdog, NC State ice cream, Methodist church's famous ham biscuit, and a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yes, that's correct my friends, a deep-fried PB&J... doesn't get much better than that. Although hot peanut butter seems even stickier than normal. It was a tossup between the most yummy and most disgusting thing I've ever eaten.

Overall it was a fun trip. I was glad I got to take Jericho on his inaugural State Fair experience! This post would be sooo much better if I had actual pictures from my trip. Boo on that.


  1. yay for good state fair experiences.... i just want to let you know that i "tagged" you... i look forward to reading all the fun and funky things about you!

  2. I love the turkey legs from the state fair.

  3. I've never gotten one!!! I thought about it this year... but went for the hotdog instead. I was afraid that the giant turkey leg would spoil my appetite for all the other gross food i wanted to eat.

  4. Sound like a fun time! I think the funnest things about fairs are the freaky people and deep fried food. I actually think deep fried oreos are so good, if I dont think about what I am actually eating.
