Wow it's Sunday morning already!!?? After being officially inducted into the Sake Bomber Brotherhood and toasting our missing brethren Nancy (FancyNancy...aka my designated driver!) and I headed back to the hidden office Park Marriott while dodging the the dunken uber-zombies of the 2AM post clubbing aftermath which litter the streets of Uptown Minneapolis!  Nancy safely got us back and now it was time to try to get a few hrs of shut eye before meeting the gang for breakfast.  Hmm ok seems that I packed my pajama top but no pants (I swear I didn't do this on purpose!) so I emerged from the bathroom sporting my evening wear thich I'm sure impressed Nancy so that she could hardly resist me....brown PJ shirt and blue plaid shorts!! A fashion faux pas that gave her a chuckle.

  I have to say it was fun having a middle of the night conversation with Nancy about all the crap our imaginations spring on us and scare us half to death with!! I confessed that sometimes I'm convinced there's something behind the shower curtain and have to force myself to go pull it back just to make sure there's nothing there...yeah i know there's medication for that!  We started laughing at my story about the scary pig in my profile pic that gave tiffany (Tiffybear) nightmares when I posted that pic!  Ok, now it was about 4am and we really needed some sleep...I don't think there was much to be had between my snoring (I only do this when I'm REALLY tired!) and the housekeepers who invaded the room at what felt to be 6am...
I woke up in kindof a stupor but I could swear that Nancy was yelling at them in Spanish....wow what did I drink at Chino Latino!?? Before we knew it we had to be up and out for breakfast. 

So after a quick breakfast at Brueger's Bagels and Caribou Coffee (YUM!!!) we said our goodbyes to Shawn ,Jen and Nancy and headed down to the Irish Festival on Harriet Island.  I met the gang there and thought I had pulled a fast one because I didn't remember paying to get in...turns out this thing is FREE admission?? I can't remember the last time I went to anything like this and it was free to get in!!  The fair was GREAT...lots of Irish Stuff....food, music, sheepherding and rugby demos, kilts and BEER.  The weather was beautiful, the music amazing and the company warm and inviting...a perfect ending to my Minnesota meetup.
