Happy Jim and Pam made this the best of the chapters. When they snuck in the photo booth I half expected it to be the talking photo booth that Jay Leno features on his show from time to time. That would be an interesting cross-over. Loved the fireworks, cuddling and Dora the Explorer!

Great job with Jim and Pam's banter in this chapter - sounded just like them - and with Karen's disdain for the art - sounded just like her, too. And how sweet that Jim managed to get her the mirrors...

No Pam - it isn't sweet. Wake up and smell the turnips! Seriously, great chapter. It showed just how selfish and pig headed Roy could be. And how sweet, caring and fun Jim can be. And how clueless Dwight can be...

This was such an awesome set of stories! Especially this one...so cute. So, so, so cute.
You know, I feel the same about your works. You have, hands down, some of the best stories on MTT! :]

Sneaky!Jam is great. I just pictured this being part of their summer vacation prior to the Fun Run outing. :) And if that's the case, then yeah, I'd have to agree with Jim that it's going really great. :)
Fabulous job with this story! Do you forsee any future trips to the fair? Andy and Angela perchance? Darryl and Kelly? Dwight and a giant kumquat?

Oh...wow! This chapter was a tour-de-force of awesomnosity! (Yeah, it'll be a word one day).
You captured all these little vignettes so wonderfully, it felt like watching an actual episode. I loved Jim and Pam's conversation about the mirrors (I won both a Def Leppard AND a Trans Am mirror when I was a kid.), and Creed in the hay caused me to snort out loud. :)
I guess my only wish would have been to see a little more of the Winnebago trip, but then, this story was about being at the fair, not on a road trip. :)
Off to read the next chapter!

How am I just discovering this little gem now? 'Scuse me whilst I kick myself, okay? :)
I could totally picture everyone at the fair, and could just about smell that odd fair mixture of corn dogs, caramel, and deep fried foods that is so unique. You've done a great job here in setting all this up.
And let's hear it for penguin/car safety! :) Excellent!

Blue Blast - everyone's favorite...flavor? Color? Insecticide?
"Pig muck or Dwight breath." Please, muggins, could there be a door number 3?
I love the little section with Angela, Phyllis, and Pam. Pam's so nice there. 'Pig jokes'? Priceless.
Little typo: "I don't thinks so"
The Mime act is a staple when Michael travels with the troupe? Wonderful.
The 'wanna win me a...' part is so very good and true to life...angsty! I like the different 'names' of the games.
Ryan's excuses...he's got them for every occasion, I guess.
Phyllis tricking Angela into the tilt-a-whirl? Fun. But I hope Angela doesn't throw up on her...
I think you're missing a to in: "Pam was the last person to return the office"
Andy didn't make it back to the bus, but Dwight did? Creed's statement reminded me of his story of the fight in The Negotiation...fun.
So Jim couldn't help but get the mirrors for Pam. That's sweet. I had to look up Bob Ross. Now that I did, I got what Karen was saying. Wow, Karen just doesn't mesh here, does she?
Do we have another chapter with Jim and Pam taking the kids? They have a lot of kids, because they never did use those condoms.

Glad to see more Muggins! Pretty good county fair for not having a demolition derby. And Pam's apartment will look so good with those mirrors ;o) She can put them on her ceiling so she & Jim can watch themselves...

You are brilliant - honestly. Every voice is so perfect, and the scenario you've put the entire office in here is such a good opportunity for using them all the way you do. I think my favorite thing was when Ryan rattled off all those excuses why he wasn't gonig on the ferris wheel with Kelly - that moment on the show with Jim is my fave Ryan moment (which for me are few and far between. lol)...also, the dynamic you've got going with the differences between Pam and Karen is right on! Brava!

THIS IS SO AWESOME! I can see this happening so clearly. Your dialogue was spot-on, and just the idea of Roy being adamant about the "fun rides" and Jim knowing exactly how to make sure Pam REALLY had fun...::sigh:: beautiful

Oooh, I love Country Fairs! So fun! This was really cute with Jim winning Pam the orange penguin, and them annoying the crap out of Dwight. The only thing was that I think you exaggerated on Roy's jerkiness a little too much in this chapter.
But I really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to more!

Excellent, muggins! I'm with Pam - no Zipper. Blech.
I know you left an apostrophe out in this following sentence just for me. I thank you. “Oh, and its fun going on rides I don’t want to go on?”
I'm wondering if Jim kissed his girly. I'm sure that's just the kind of thing you wouldn't let us see even if it happened. I think Roy should have brought Kenny along. Then he'd have someone to go on barfy rides with, plus they'd both have their designated driver. Win-win.
I really liked these lines: “Win your girly a stuffed animal, Jim!” She bounced slightly to egg him on.
The 'bounced slightly' makes me think of Pam bouncing to the break room when Jim's been jinxed.
I loved all the beet/turnip stuff. Confusing Dwight is always fun.
All Pam needs to be happy is Jim and a penguin!
