More nice plans

Today we are supposed to go to the fair. Not the renaissance fair that I mentioned yesterday, but the State Fair of Texas. On Wednesday they have this tradition of letting people in for free if they bring canned goods for charity. We spent about three dollars on six cans of food. Regular tickets costs $14 each.

Of course the admission fee isn't the main expense of the fair. Probably food is the main expense. And maybe midway rides. And you might buy something "as seen on TV." Of course, no one requires you to buy food and such, but you are at least required to have a ticket to get in.

Well, we really weren't even planning to go. But my husband just happened to have the day off, and Wednesday is the day that you can get in for about a dollar, so we might at well go. I think that maybe we haven't gone in like five or six years.

Anyway, that's the plan for today, so I'll probably skip class tonight. He's still asleep, so at this very moment I'm not even for sure that we are going, but probably. I think if we go that tomorrow I'll list all the money that we spent at our almost "free" day at the fair.

I hear they have deep-fried twinkies at these state fairs! They have for a while now: they are probably thinking of something more decadent to serve now (like beer-battered spam or something like that). I'm just surprised that the state fair is so late in the year: usually these things are in the summer.
