A Day at the Fair

The Latah County Fair.
El kid and I went down to Moscow, Idaho to meet up with a friend at the Latah County Fair. This is truly a smalltown fair. There were pigs, cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, miniature horses (didn't see any big horses), scary fried food, cheap carnival rides (hopefully I'll have a picture to post soon), and scary carnies.

All in all, a lovely way to waste an afternoon.

There was a small section where people were showing pet rodents in the rabbit barn. There were a few hamsters, a black and white (pinto style) rat, a few guinea pigs, and one fluffy thing that was either a tribble or a weird guinea pig.

For your reference, some tribbles and one really crap actor:

After the fair we went to the friend's house out in the boonies and looked at her chickens, dogs, cats, fish, frogs...hmmm....she sort of lives at a fair except for the carnies.

For frugal fun this weekend (the fair was free...but we did drive 75 miles to get there and eat overpriced fair fare which was not frugal), we watched a movie I got from netflix.
The movie:
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
It was hysterical. Ricardo Montalban was sporting some serious cleavage though El Kid, me and El Kid's friend all think it was some sort of falsies arrangement because it moved oddly and his outfit appeared to be attached to his chest. Let me see if I can find a photo...

Yes, here we go. That is some serious man cleavage (meavage?).

Surprisingly, Khan did NOT have a wardrobe malfunction, no nip slip, so I do not know if he, like Janet Jackson, was wearing some sort of freaky starburst nipple ring. But given the outfit, I'm thinking he probably was.

I wonder if Shatner's people will find this entry and complain that Ricardo's picture is bigger than the Shat's. That would be awesome*.

*the word awesome is appropriate in this instance as the movie came out in 1982, the peak of the misuse of awesome.

What ARE those tribble things at fairs? I saw them at the Iowa State Fair once, and at the Kane County Fair (IL) too!

At this fair they were some sort of woolly guinea pig.
