What I Did Today

Aside from line edits.

Steph and I went over to the German Fest at the Dayton fairgrounds. It was a small crowd and not a big event or anything, but we ate schnitzel and german potato salad and got our faces painted and went on some rides and did a little shopping, and Stephanie won me a prize!

It is a FROG! I think I shall call him Dilbert.

Steph also very kindly bought me a lovely pendant as, she insists, a belated birthday gift. I reminded her I still owed her $100. She shrugged. And it really is a lovely pendant:

I picked up something else, too. The thing with living with Stephanie's Old Man is, of course, that he's allergic to almost everything with scent, which means no scented candles, and because so many candles come with scent these days, I just didn't bother getting any new ones, and I threw out a lot of my old candle holders when I moved here in March.

But for $5 at the German Fest, I picked up this little fake flickering candle holder:

And I even have a place for it right next to my bracelets from Durban:

You know, if you've got great friends and great food (and health insurance), Dayton's not so bad... Next fest (the fair is coming up in a couple weeks), we'll have proper festival pics.

Sounds like you had a good time.

I love the pictures of "300" to go along with your gifts!

I was just going to comment on the 300 postcards too! Awesome!

Picturs of The 300 go with ALL types of home decor, are you kidding??? :)

Those are actually the inserts from The 300 soundtrack. I was very happy there was a pic with the Queen holding a sword...
