Outside My Door

I walked out of my front door the other day to discover that an entire midway was being assembled on my street. All told, the street will be closed for over a fortnight while the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Feast and Family Festival is put up, takes place, and is taken down.

We had a saint's feast near my apartment in Williamsburg but it boasted only small kiddie rides assembled in the school parking lot. This reaches a whole different level. Among other attractions, the midway features a full-sized Merry-go-round:

This enchanting amusement called the "Tornado":

And most impressively, a full-sized ferris wheel.
I assure you the prices are full-sized as well. $4 corndog, anyone?

Parting shot

I just got a spam email today extolling the virtues of some unmissable "business opportunity" but what really bought my eye was the last line:

"My name is now zazzle."

A move sure to bring untold credibility to the spammer's brand.
