holy corn dogs

Aaaaaa! Hope I didn't scare you. I'm super stoked to hear the new Slipknot album. Can't even wait. I'm determined to get tickets on the floor this time when they come to play Des Moines. Their live show is freaky heart-pounding insanity. Even though I've seen them play so many times, I have to see them live again.

Today is the first day of the Iowa State Fair. And this morning, they held The Corn Dog Chomp, an attempt to set a record for the most people simultaneously eating corn dogs. More than 10,000 people packed the Grandstand for the event but they only had 8,000 corn dogs, but then made 400 more, for a total of 8,400 (look at me - math whiz!) All the people traveling to the fair for the free 'dogs (oh yeah, I forgot to mention they were free) apparently caused huge traffic jams. Funny stuff. I love corn dogs. And Iowa.

And check out this state fair t-shirt from Smash.

I got MORE fun stuff in the mail last week... I'm seriously getting spoiled. This package comes with a fun project for The Dares in a couple of weeks. Totally fabulous.

And after almost a week of stalking Target, craptastic Wally-World and Toys'R'Us, we finally found the Yo Gabba Gabba toys that I've been talking about non-stop. Sorry everybody. But it was worth it - look how awesome they are! Lotus loves them so much. And now I can act out all the scenes (since I know them by heart.) Good thing season two starts soon. We're almost Gabba-ed out.

UPDATE: Lotus is famous.

That's it for today... peace out.
