Fun List: Orange County Fair

Sunday we headed over to the OC [don't call it that] Fair for some good, ol' fashioned fair fun, including Twittering live our various food finds (aka: tw-eating).

We saw Weird Al's Brain, which looks exactly like you'd expect: Hawaiian shirt, curly hair, and crazy eyes! Actually, it's a 3D movie that explains how the brain works (with cameos by Tom Lennon, Patton Oswalt, and more) and one of the best brain songs that I've ever heard. Look for this movie coming to a town near you (tour schedule is available on their website).

After Al's Brain, we got down to business: eating. Kate tw-eat'ed (tw-ate?) everything as we went along and her rating system is hilarious.

Fried White Castle Burger: 1 out of 5 greased pigs
Tasty Chips: 4 out of 5 greased pigs
Funnel Cake: 4 out of 5 clogged arteries
Key Lime & Red Velvet mini cupcakes: 3.5 out of 5 aching teeth
Meatball slider: 3 out of 5 pepperonis
Lemonade from cupcake stand: 4.5 out of 5 curdled tongues
Largest other fruit: 5 out of 5

We saw baby chickens and goats and pigs and even a calf that was trying to suckle on a girl's shoe and walked through the crafts building and looked at all the collections. We didn't see all the art, so I guess we'll have to go back (aw, shucks!) another day. We saw some interesting people and also some very interesting people. We got some free nail polish (from this kinda cool nail art stamp-thingamajig. I got a strawberry.) and saw a Paul Bunyan quilt and got henna tattoos. I even got a chance to put on a How To Eat Funnel Cake clinic, while wearing my funnel cake earrings! We were all so sad that the day had to end, so Ryan and Kate decided to go down the Big Slide. I stayed at base camp to photograph it all, but my camera started 'thinking' in the middle, so I only ended up with a couple of pictures. Oh well - I guess we'll just HAVE TO GO BACK!
