Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Congratulate me, Blog Guy! I’m going to Oktoberfest this year! It’s a life-long dream come true!
I‘m not totally sure, but I’m paying about $80 a night, so I’m guessing it will be very, very swanky. Maybe like a suite or something.
Ah. Yeah, I think I know the place, the ‘Wiesn camp’ at the Horse Stadium.
Pretty posh, huh?
Um, it’s 300 tents, holding four people each. So you drink beer all day long, then you crawl into your tent along with your three roomies and their tubas or whatever.
Blog Guy, I like it when you find interesting traditions practiced by other cultures, like for instance that “love market” that you wrote about last year.
Well, I see here in the Singapore Straits Times that the Chinese have entered the seventh month of the Lunar calendar, known as the Hungry Ghost month…
Blog Guy, I have a common problem. I’ve been a bridesmaid in three weddings this year alone, and I don’t know what to do with all my stupid bridesmaid dresses.
Thank you for calling International Department of Festivals, how may we help you?
Well, our little town doesn’t have any kind of an annual festival to attract tourists. We’d like to get in on the action, so I thought I’d check with you to see what’s available.
Blog Guy, in the past you’ve criticized Spain for things like bullfighting, the running of the bulls in Pamplona, and that thing where they ride horses through fire. Don’t they have any normal traditions?
Sure. Just a couple of days ago we covered carnival celebrations up in the Basque region, and I’ve been looking at our photos of that.
