I went to the Fairfax County Fair this past weekend.
There's nothing like a fair. Kids screaming on the "roller coaster" that is shaped like a caterpillar and goes negative two miles per hour. "Carnies" begging you to toss some coins and win a cheesy mug (I remember when you won actual carnival glass). Eating bad-for-you carnival food (which now costs WAY too much). Eating funnel cake and cotton candy. Feeling sick after. Woo hoo!
The big name concert at the fair was Sugar Ray. (I adore Mark McGrath. He's the nicest guy in showbiz. And while he's much shorter in person than he looks on tv, he's a hottie for sure.)
May I just say that I am saddened by the fact that now when a slow song is played, instead of holding up lighters, people hold up their cell phones and turn the display light on. *Sigh*
