mullets at The Strip!

What is it about drag races that attracts the rednecks? This is a ridiculously expensive sport, with some very high level engineering and mecahnics involved, and yet every race i go to is mullet-watch '06. Please, give me a race fan that appreciates what we do here.

And what do we do? Why, we spend 14 hours at the track to make one aborted run. Tire shake and a hard left ended our day. But tomorrow is a new day, two new chances, and a more forgiving transmission waiting in the trailer.

I miss my boyfriend, with whom i've been trading text messages and all-too-brief conversations all day. He's at my house, with my animals and my computer, while I sit in this bland hotel room with my brother's laptop and a six-pack i picked up from the am/pm across the way. There's a "Tacos Mexico" here too, but the food is not as good as the "Tacos Mexico" at home. I believe that this is because Las Vegas is further away from Mexico than southern California.

I've come up with the solution to my compulsive gambling. As soon as I get back in the hotel room from the racetrack, I immediately change into my turquiose green "troll" pajamas. Nothing will convince me to go out in these.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…

    I'm in Nashville. In my beautiful house, with all my wonderful animals, and i'm in love with the man sleeping with his head on my lap right now.…
