    The kids and I are going up Friday night – we’ll probably hit 6th Street, see some shows, get liquored up, stumble in at about 3:30 AM and then wake up bright and early the next morning to do the Faire all day.

    Or something like that. Maybe we’ll leave out all of the underage drinking. And although we really would like to see you there I have to beg, please don’t fire rockets at my kids … you know, in case they are hung-over. What kind of monster ARE you? Sheesh πŸ˜€

    This is going to be the rulingest rule-a-thon EVAR!!

    Excellent, Jazzy Jamie! I’m sure your kiddos will love it – if they’re not drunk, that is.

    Not sure if we’re headed up Friday night on Saturday morning, but we’ll be there for sure. It should be a blast.
