It’s Pronto Pup time!

August 25, 2003
Space Tower @ The Minnesota State Fair

As you might be able to guess, Raven & I went to the Great Minnesota Get-Together Friday. Did I mention that while I am working for Western National my Friday’s end a Noon? Did I mention that, while this means I have more time for the weekend, it also means that, being paid hourly, I have less money too?!

I’m really only a casual Fair-goer. I have been a Fest junkie (I think the term “Festie” for most of us is held with about the same high regard that Trek fans have for the term “Trekkie”) for years, and usually you have to choose one or the other if you have a day job.

We had a pretty good day. We started off looking at some livestock, (Bunnies are cute) and then we went for Malts in the Empire Commons. After that, we stopped at the Agriculture Building. Realizing it was getting dark, we high tailed it over to the Space Tower. We then stopped by the DFL booth and got a Kucinich button for me and a “Friends don’t let friends vote republican” button for Raven.

We wandered through the Creative Arts building until it closed and then it was time for more food! I, of course, found the nearest Pronto Pup stand and Raven went for the Roasted Corn. Our Dessert was provided by Sweet Martha. Finally, we wound our way down to the Midway and rode a couple o’ rides.

P.S. Contrary to popular belief: A pronto-pup and a corn-dog are entirely different things!!! A corn-dog is made with cornbread batter, and a pronto-pup is made with pancake batter!! I mean come on, it’s like night and….ummm….later that night!!
