no shame

I tell you friend Lydia has no shame when it comes to chowing down. There's nothing like an evening at the fair to prove my point. This year she even brought our friend Joy along to witness the madness. She started with Al's French Fries...complete with a misting of vinegar and tons of ketchup:

She followed her usual MO by chasing a savory treat with a sweet one: a fried candy bar...

Next stop...a chicken pita. Oh...and a bottle of water. Gotta be healthy, you know:

The evening was capped with an NC State ice cream milkshake. Mm-mmm!

Lydia sure does love her food. She bribed this fellow with some milkshake in an attempt to get him to run away with her!

I had a great time Lydia (and Joy)! This is a night that I wouldn't miss for anything in this world. Let the countdown to next year begin!

What's that? You don't think that I let them eat alone, do you? Check out Lydia's report on my evening at the fair here. Just keep in mind that I'd been sick a few days before and my stomach shrunk. I just wasn't in any state to keep up with her.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

This is your warning. Lydia and I are going to the fair tonight. A mega food post (and possibly a fried food-induced coma) is coming tomorrow...

Roxie went on vacation last week. You know how we always like to celebrate her return...

This time, we stole her dinosaur. Oozey was anxious to meet him:

The dinosaur resurfaced this morning encased in jello. It turns out that this is a bit more complicated than just preparing a package of jello. I don't really want my stuff put in I won't be revealing the secret here...

That'll teach her to go on vacation...

Can it be Thanksgiving now? It's starting to be cooler...we're well into football season (I don't want to talk about it though), and the fair will be here before we know it.

I've been on the phone working on Thanksgiving plans this morning...and now I'm looking forward to Turkey Day. I'm ready for some dressing, mashed potatoes, collards and, of course pumpkin pie. And I can't wait to see my cousins. I'm hungry...
