The other event grabbing money from people's pockets this weekend is the College World Series. I like baseball well enough, but if I'm interested in seeing a non-pro game, I can watch a minor league team for much less than tickets to the CWS. The events were being held on opposite ends of town, so I stuck to the middle of the city and managed to avoid the crowds from both camps. It was nice!

So that was fun.
...but eventually I had to put on clothes again, and head out. I'm doing my best to live in my swimsuit this summer, but the rainy weather is most uncooperative. Someone ought to do something about that. I'm still refusing to wash my hair more than once or twice a week, so sunhats are being regularly employed. No, there wasn't any sun today.

What about you? Do the "Junk" festivals do much for you, or do you prefer to hunt your own treasures at the swap meet?
