Ew. Just...ew.

Mister Hunzer and I took the kids to the MN State Fair last week. We love the fair. We also have a food booth in the fair (technically Mister H owns it with two friends but I just say "we" for sake of argument). Since Mister H virtually lives at the fucking fair during it's entire 12 day run, we have to force ourselves to enjoy it when we are there with the kids.

Notice how I went from "we love the fair" to "the fucking fair" to "we have to force ourselves to enjoy it"? It truly is a love-hate relationship with most of the emphasis on "love".

This year we checked out the "butterly house". It was a huge room filled with random free-flying butterflies. It was actually pretty cool. They just landed on you anywhere ~ your head, your back, your leg, whatevs. Thing 1 and I just loved it. Thing 2 wasn't sure what to think. He liked that you could get so up close and personal with the butterflies but he only wanted it on HIS terms. The Baby Boy Child and DH could have cared less. (The Teen was working in our booth at this time or he would have been with us)...

I thought the butterfly house was cool as shit so when I found out that you could buy a container of caterpillars for home, I was all for it! Now we have these two containers with a couple coccoons in them a piece. FYI ~ coccoons are ugly.

This is where the "ew. Just...ew" part comes in.

The kids and I were in the kitchen and we kept hearing this faint "rattling" noise. One of them realized it was one of the effin' COCCOONS. It was wiggling and rattling and knocking on the side of the container.

EFFIN' GROSS!

Oh...I took video, of course. *wink*




See what I mean? CREEPY. This was earlier in the afternoon today. As of right now (10:25pm), nothing has come out of this coccoon. Perhaps it was just having a bad dream??

Apparently the MN State Fair is THE place to be. Vince Vaughn was here two nights ago! *smirk*

And now, more requisite Fair pictures...

Okay the cocoon thing would freak me out too. Glad you at least figured out what was making the noise! We're going to the Nebraska State Fair today, but I'm gonna guess that it won't be quite as cool as Minnesota's. For example, I refuse to believe that there are deep fried Spam curds here in the Husker state. I'll confirm in a few hours. (BTW, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Spam? Seriously?)

What the hell is a spam curd?! NAS-TY!!

The butterfly thing sounds cool. I would probably really enjoy that. I love butterflies, though. Did it tickle when they landed on you? Your daughter looked happy. (and she's downright cute, to boot!)

Sorry the fair is a love/hate thing! I always loved it, but now with the Weight Watchers, it won't be fun, but more like torture! So, what food do you guys sell? Maybe I can live vicariously.....

So, did you wash the clown jizz outta your hair? I'm still hoping you didn't because I thought it looked cute!

I am so not watching the cocoon video!! NASTY!

I so thought this was going in a nasty carnie way. Like ew all the skevy bastards at the fair, but cocoon wiggling is nasty too. Man You people over in MN fry some silly shit, I am sure a trend is to follow, hahaha

It must be noted that I DID NOT GO NEAR THE SPAM CURDS.

I just took a photo of it because I could not friggin' believe people actually ate them. I would have taken photos of the people eating them but just watching them made me gag.

Roxann ~ Deep fried pickles baby!

the real ~Roxann~ said...

dammit, blogger sucks!

Ok, let's try this again.....


Deep fried pickles, huh? Like the great big fat dill pickles? Interesting......


That's just the kind of booth I could see you having......

sorta the "sexy" fair food, if you know what I mean! ;-)

Ha ha ha!!!!

Hunz, one of my friends AND my BF's mom both told me about the pickles. Like, it was their fav and I had to go try it.

:)

I didn't eat cheese curds this year, YAY!

RE: life in a cocoon ... not creepy - interesting! Was that one that finally came out and you're releasing?!
