Today's the day...I know I'm going on and on about this festival - sorry if it's a bit annoying. But, I have to tell you the truth - I'll be talking about it for the next 10 days or so, since that's what every single day will be about, from 11 am till midnight. It's really like a weird alternate reality to basically live a long stretch of time in one spot on the street. No I don't sleep there (although I get asked that alot - this boler is pretty cool but it's no clown car, and I don't want to sleep on a pile of clothing).
So the next two weeks or so will be full of talking to hundreds of people I've never met, laughing with people I haven't seen in a long time, eating cakettes, samosas, gyros, drinking lots of fresh squeezed lemon aid, listening to main stage music, watching the street performers from my eggies front door.
Last year i had help enough to see a few performances in actual venues, and this year I'll probably be able to do it again. Live theater is soooo hit and miss, but it's fun even if it's bad - and the BEST if it's REAAALLLY bad (wink).
I also love meeting new vendors and checking out their setups. We have a few old friends and a few new ones this year. I'm sure it'll be a great time. I promise to have a stocked fridge (wink,wink).
PS. Yes, we have a ton of pretty colored chevron friendship bracelets. These are soooo nice - I had so much fun making a display for them.
Lots more festival stuff to come, including exactly what we did new for our display this year. I can't wait to set up tomorrow! But now, I really have to try and get some sleep because we'll be up early - and baby will definitely need a bottle in a couple hours...
