Just reading the paper on a Sunday morning ...

I almost get giddy when I get to read anything new by Michael Pollan, so I was quite happy this a.m. to see this article in the NYT Magazine: The Vegetable-Industrial Complex. Mmm, tainted spinach.

In other news, Mr. Pants and I went to the NC State Fair yesterday morning. It was OK. Here's a highlight:

And of course, there are adorable little piggies there, too:

UPDATE: The News & Observer Blog-On-A-Stick has a much better vid of the guy. (Thanks to Georg for pointing me to the Blog-On-a-Stick).

Well, just OK in that Mr. Pants wasn't thrilled ... he only went to use is big fancy camera. And I get a little jaded about because of work. I thought it was fun, though--I could have stayed longer but I had to get back to do Mondo Mundo. Go! Have fun!

I can't resist.

Our state fair is a great state fair,
Don't miss it, don't even be late.
It's dollars to donuts
That our state fair
Is the best state fair in our state.

A co-worker did all the graphics for that one. Why--did yu like it or hate it? It seemed to be popular when I was there.

I was creeped out by the amount of glow-in-the-dark I failed to wash off, especially since I'd just eaten with my hands. But I guess that was the point. I must say I've been washing much more thoroughly since then, so I guess it worked :)
