One Weekend Down!

We survived the first weekend of the Ren Fair! The weather was pretty bad - really grey and chilly. It rained (okay sprinkled) during one of our shows and after the fair on Saturday night, but the sun came out as soon as the fair closed last night. This good weather had better hold!

My last question was a really good example of 'how do I get my questions', for those who wonder. I asked about funky asparagus pee because I brought some asparagus to grill at fair rehearsal the night before. That got me thinking about a segment on Brainiac where they explored why you get funky asparagus wee. Apparently there is a percentage of people who can't process asparagine. (I think it was almost 50% in the UK and higher in the US) BUT, there is also a percentage of people (with a similar correlation, I think) who can't smell asparagine. I think I'm in the later category - I've never smelled funky asparagus wee as far as I know. I'd never even heard of it until I saw a scene in a movie where girls were testing how long it took them to get it.

1. How was your weekend?

2. What is the most memorable thing you saw this weekend?

3. Are you celebrating anything special this month?
