At the Fair with Ariel

Please join me in welcoming Ariel from The French Poet! She's going to tell us more about her experience at the county fair.

Amber: What is your favorite part about the fair?

Ariel: My favorite part about the fair would have to be just seeing all the animals and other exhibits. I loved seeing how creative other people could be! It also gave me ideas of things I could do for next year.

Amber: Do you have a favorite fair food (ie: popcorn, cotton candy, curly fries)?

Ariel: Oh, I cannot pick just one! I love junk food, so I ate almost anything. :P I ate hotdogs, curly fries, cotton candy, snow cones and ice cream. Oh and funnel cake! I don't even want to know how many calories I eat during fair! :P

Amber: Funnel cake seems to be really popular with ya'll! ;) What kind of ride do you enjoy the most, and what do you think that says about your personality? (For example, if your favorite ride was the Ferris wheel it might say that you're daring and you like seeing the big picture from a higher perspective. This is just for fun, so anything goes!)

Ariel: I loved the Sizzler because it squishes you close to whoever you're sitting with. I love being close to be people and snuggling so I never found it awkward. Some of my friends on the other hand... ;)

Amber: Any fun fair memories you want to share?

Ariel: The year I got Grand Champion Rabbit Showman and Reserve Champion Small Animal Showman! I know most people can't relate, but the feeling you get when you find out you won and all your hard work paid off is amazing. And my mom cried, which is a rare occasion. ;) Gotta love the support!

Amber: That's great! Can you think of any movies or books set at a fair that you would recommend for us to check out?

Ariel: Well this isn't technically at a fair, but the movie Grease is great when they have that closing carnival and are singing in all the rides; I love to sing along. And I just love the atmosphere!

Thanks for having me as a guest, Amber! :)

Amber: Thank you for joining us, Ariel! It was fun hearing about your adventures!

Side Note: My mom and I had lunch today with one of my good friends and her mom, and they both live in Ferndale. So they went to see Guy Fieri on opening day at the Humboldt County Fair! My friend's mom said that he was really nice, and that he had a group of bodyguard-type people around him called the "Knuckle Sandwich Brigade," or something like that. ;) Apparently he was really kind to everyone. *sigh* Would have been nice to meet him, but at least it's fun to hear more about him!

GREAT interview, Amber and Ariel!!

I just have to say Ariel, I LOVE your name. So very cool and unique.;)
And I love rides like the Sizzler, but, not so much the being-super-close-to-somebody-else-on-the-hotest-day-of-the-year (WOW! That's a lot of hyphens. Sorry). Or, it at least seems that hot everytime I go to the fair. ;)
And you just can't help but love Grease, right?

AMBER!! That's so (for lack of a good SAT word) awesome that your friend and her mom got to meet Guy. He is so much fun to watch on DDD. Watching that show makes me hungry everytime. Which is not a good thing when it's 10:00 PM. LOL

Love Y'all!,

Amber: Thank you so much for having me as a guest! :D And that's so cool that Guy was at your fair! Man I'm jealous....

Ashley: Thanks, I like my name too! ;) And yes grease is amazing! :D

Fun interview, Ariel and Amber. I have never heard of the Sizzler. Guess it must be called something different here.

Congratulations on winning with your rabbit. I must admit I've never seen a rabbit show.

The only "fair" movie I could think of was also Grease because of that last scene. I know there was an Elvis movie too, but I couldn't remember much about it.
Our fair doesn't have animals. :( We have 4-H cattle contests and all that, but it's always @ a different time.
I love your name, too, Ariel. If we had of had a little girl, Ariel was going to be her middle name. We had a boy, though. :)

Amber Holcomb said...

ASHLEY: Glad you liked the interview! And Guy IS fun to watch, even if food shows like that make you hungry. ;)

ARIEL: Thank you for letting me interview, and it was great hosting you on my blog! :D I'm excited that Guy was here, as well, but I'm sorry if I made you jealous. ;)

JULIA: Thanks for stopping by, and glad you enjoyed the interview! :) I'm not sure, but from Ariel's description I think our version of the Sizzler is the Scrambler. I don't know what all the different names are... ;)

BLUEROSE: Oh, I think I've seen the Elvis movie you're referring to! Is it: It Happened at the World's Fair? I recall enjoying that movie. :) Thanks for stopping by!


Ariel Wilson said...

Julia: Yeah, Amber's right, it's also called the Scrambler :) And you should watch a rabbit show sometime! It's fun :)

Bluerose: You should have a girl, just to use my name! ;) Haha, just kidding :)

Amber: No problem! And don't worry, I am not that jealous ;)
