    I got 90%. It's really hard in the beginning when there's nothing to go by.

    On the state capitals, I missed 2, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    I'm not going to take the test because I know I won't get very many correct and it will be very embarassing for me.
    -----------

    I got to attend our 25th annual Fringe Festival yesterday! It was great. We didn't have time to see many of the 161 plays but caught some funny magicians and interestesting vendors. Has anyone else "fringed"?

    Never, Misskitty. Tell me more about a Fringe Festival and how I can get "fringed"

    You don't get fringed. You just "fringe" with others. It's 10 days of fabulous to absolutely horrible plays and performances. Call it experimental and non-traditional theatre. Nothing is guaranteed. Some of the plays are indoors, some outdoors and they're the travelling buskers who come with their own stuff. Loads of audience participation. The plays get chosen randomly so it's a totally eclectic mix. It's a little theatre city within a city.

    Fringing is all about hit and miss. Reading up on what's been reviewed, taking your chances, meeting a ton of strange strangers, and enjoying buskers, musicians, artists, food, onion cakes, while waiting in line or wandering around trying to decide what to do. Like getting tattooed or your hair woven. It's very funky. It's an experience unto itself.

    The North American Fringe circuit began with the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival, which is now second only to Edinburgh in size. Woo Hoo!

    I also went down to the Dragon Boat Festival- our 25th anniversary. It was moved up river to where my neighborhood ravine comes out so I could walk down it. There were 58 teams of 22 people each competing. They built a new boat launch and had food, crafts, a beer tent, and 3 days of gruelling races. I've never sat in a dragon boat. Only a small canoe. Has anyone else paddled a dragonboat or watched a race? It's pretty cool with the drummers drumming on each boat!

    It looks interesting.

    I'm trying to decide if I want to go to the Renescence Festivel by myself today. It's Scottish weekend and I want to go but can't find anyone to go with me. On the other hand, I'm still exhausted over this long standing cold and I have a ton of housework to do. A friend told me she could go over Labor Day weekend, but all the big husky men in kilts with bagpipes will be gone.

    Decisions Decisions.
    I could go east, I could go west, it was all up to me to decide. Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise. ~Bob Seger
