Half-Assed Weekender Edition
I can't write this post without shouting out to the Simple Dude. This is, after all, a Simple Dude idea to write a half-assed post on the the weekends... And he did call me Queen of the the half-assed's. I'll take THAT as a compliment!
Recently Booby and I went back to the race shop. We really had to since when we left in November we were simply off on a nowhere trip. All we took was 2 week's worth of stuff. But never went back. "Had a wife and kids in Baltimore Jack, went out for a ride but I never went back" Thanks Bruce, those really are words to live by. Especially when the wife goes with you, and there aren't any kids being left behind.
A really really cool thing was waiting for us in the mail: a GIFT CARD! Racing had it's benefits. All the hotels giving us a shitload of free nights via the points programs and fans with money. Hmm. Fans with money to spare. Fans who love their racers. Fans who want to share their money to spare with their favorite racers. And a female mechanic does kinda stick out so I got to be favored by some of these fans. Yessssss!
One in particular got a hold of our address (maybe when I gave it to him because he asked where could he send us the occasional little token of appreciation). And sends us restaurant gift cards. Yessssssss!
Last week Booby and I headed out on our "date" to the Red Lobster, gift card in hand. The waitress greeted us by asking if there was a special occasion. Booby and I both giggled. It's a fuckin Red Lobster! One step above Long John Silvers! Ok, maybe a few steps above with a pricey menu... But still, Red Lobster?
He told her it was our anniversary. Haha, I guess it's always an anniversary of "something" right? Exactly one year ago today it was: one year ago today! Yippee, let's celebrate! All night we kept wishing each other happy anniversary clinking our free wine glasses.
Thanks super fan, and yes I will forward you my new address!
I wonder if roller derby girls have super fans? (*fingers crossed behind back*)
