>Indy 500 Weekend

May 28, 2008 at 4:30 pm (Uncategorized)

>Well, it was 500 time again here in Indy. Always an exciting time especially since my dad and all of his friends come into town. Some of you are familiar with my dad’s friends so you know I had good time. We went to the parade on Saturday which was a lot of fun. Some good celebrities there like Patricia Heaton (Everybody Love Raymond), The O-Jays, Slash, Kristy Yamaguchi (sp??), Ruth Buzzi, Florence Henderson, Jim Nabors, etc. After words we went to the Claddaugh for some car bombs and to sing songs. I have to say that when we got the bill, the first line said 27 Car Bombs…….$195.67. Whoops! I did not have a car bomb, but I took video footage and pictures. Hopefully I’ll be able to post them sometime. That night we went to the Capital Grille for dinner (my favorite) and had an awesome meal.

Sunday we got up early to take our police escort to the race (ha all you peons that had to sit in traffic) and of course immediately walked to the track so we could view the “pagentry.” It was awesome weather, not to hot, not too cold, no rain. Perfect!! Good race, a couple crashes in front of us. Both my guys in our pool went out about mid race almost at the same time. I believe on the same caution. Chris got a little toasty and might have lost his balance a couple times, but never actually fell. I made him buy a seat cushion which of course, got stolen. Not too many drunks this year or maybe b/c I was sober people weren’t as amusing as usual.

Anywho, now I’m just trying to make time fly so this weekend will be here sooner. Chris and I are going to a baseball game on Friday night downtown. Always a good time and the best seats are $13. On Friday nights, they have fireworks after the game. Saturday night, Chris has challenged me to a Photo Hunt Competition with one of his friends. I’m a little worried because I haven’t been training, but I think I can pull this off. People who think they are good haven’t spent multiple hours after work playing this game. They don’t even KNOW that you can hit above 400,000. Sunday we are hosting a mini BBQ in our courtyard. We are going to be playing cornhole and probably cooking brats. That’s the thing to do out here, eat sausage and throw bean bags. I’m trying to decide on side dishes to serve. Any ideas?

>Real Good Idea

May 7, 2008 at 8:36 pm (Kansas)

>So I created this blog to keep everyone caught up since I’m too busy to talk to everyone. Well, I’m too busy to keep updating this darn thing! Kansas was a blast. My dad and I spent a lot of QT together. We went to the track on Saturday and watched the IRL practices and qualifying. Then we went to dinner at the best steak house in Lawrence, Kansas. Let me tell you, I’d rather get a steak at Logans. It was awful and really upset my stomach. Sunday was race day! Jeff’s girlfriend Kayla and his friend Brandon met us at the house to get ready to go tailgate. Well, we all got the bright idea of bringing liquor to the race. Not so bright. I have not been that drunk in a long time. In fact, the race ended, and I had no clue. That’s how blitzed I was. I’m not doing that ever again. It was pure punishment having an hour drive to the airport and then two flights to get home. Needless to say, the no smoking policy at the airports didn’t bother me one bit that day.

Since then, I’ve been working a lot and finishing up my spring semester. I took my math final last night and I’m done til after Memorial Day weekend. Then I start up another crazy semester. I’m taking three class this time. Two of them are for two weeks each (Intro to Business and Business Law) and then I’m taking my computer class online for 10 weeks. We will see how that goes. I’ve been preparing for my trip back to Virginia. Chris and I are both very excited to go on our first major road trip together and talk about our feelings the whole time. Ha ha, actually, Chris is very excited. He loves Glory Days and all my friends and the area in general. He asked if we could move there. I just laughed. We all know how much of an effort was put into getting to the point I’m at now so I’m not moving ANYWHERE!!

Well, I have to finish up some things here before I leave the office for 5 whole days so see you all tomorrow night at the Hole!
