Dextre Tripp (without mustache) balancing a chainsaw on his chinThe first show we all saw at the Ren Fair yesterday was Dextre Tripp doing a bunch of acrobatic and balancing stunts. As shown in the picture to the right, where he’s balancing a chainsaw on his chin. John was disappointed that Dextre repeated the “It’s like playing Frisbee with a narcoleptic dog” joke from 2 years ago, but it’s hard work writing jokes. It’s harder work writing jokes than it is balancing chainsaws, apparently.

I didn’t mention what we all ate yesterday. For a morning snack, Stephanie and I split a Scotch egg. For lunch, Stephanie and Sarah got turkey legs. I got a bread bowl full of meatballs, marinara sauce, and cheese. John got a basket of deep-fried chicken and french fries. I don’t think anyone got mead this year, possibly because nobody saw any booth that was selling it. Anyway, we ate well, if not that healthy.

Sunday was comparatively boring. I did laundry and got groceries. Both things are necessary, but not that fun.
