Back in this, for real
I haven't updated this blog in nearly five days. My explanation:
You: Hey, John, where you been? Me: Fairing it. You: Oh, killer Me: Yeaaaahhh.
At the State Fair today, I just bought a copy of Bend Me, Shape Me by the American Breed on vinyl for $1. The vinyl dude's in the southernmost barn near the E. 11th Ave. entrance.
While browsing the racks, I found a good-condition copy of The Kink Kontroversy, which I own already but could've bought for DeVille's birthday tomorrow. But, see, DeVille's heard that record at my house. Many times. He can even borrow it for a short time. So I leaned over to the young rock fan searching the racks next to me, handed it to him and urged him to buy it.
Some might say I just saved his life.
Difficult skill games
See that Venom doll pictured above? Yeah, I won that. Only took me $35. Totally worth it. Rising Waters squirt gun game. Bested an easy bunch of 6-year-old kids. That's my advice: Find a game that allows you to compete against others, and then wait for competitors half your age.
Works every time.
$2 Corn Dogs
Not sure if that's a good deal, but the stand near the big yellow slide is offering them for this price.
