Rain & Other Things



Wasn't so "hot".  More "wet".


Doesn't have the same feel, but I might try & throw it into casual conversation, see how it flies.

I'm still processing everything that happened yesterday at the race that wasn't.  And by "race that wasn't," I mean that we got rain delayed and then sat for 2 1/2 hours while they dried 7/8th of the track, and then it rained again for 5 minutes and it was cancelled.  Technically, this means that I've still never been to a Nascar race.

I suddenly feel better :)

Confession: I did have fun.  Take me as I am, I cannot help myself.  

I have pictures.  Oh, do I have pictures.  But I don't have my camera currently, so you're going to have to live in a state of suspended satisfaction until I can get home and put them up here for you.  Trust me, if anything was ever worth waiting for, these pictures are it.  Let me see if I can sum it up in a few words for you.

Handsome.  Wal*Mart Jeans.  Scissors.  Redneck.

I feel like that induces the appropriate level of anticipation.  

Until I can get to those pictures (and possibly scar some of you for life), I will leave you with these pretty ones that I snatched off of google.  After the race was cancelled, as we walked through a sea of humanity back to our car, I caught sight of a few of these babies going up in the air.

How something so delicate and beautiful can exist at the same time as bodies with numbers spray-painted on them and beer guts so large as to be previously believed impossible, I can not understand.  
The mind cannot comprehend such a juxtaposition - hence the fact that I'm still processing.

It didn't look anything like this, but I would like to state, for the record, that if I had to get married all over again (as in, re-do the first time, not have a 2nd wedding), I would have totally finished off the night with these.  I love them.  Perhaps I can invent some other life-event that is special enough to warrant a celebration of this magnitude.  26th birthday, perhaps??  I don't think that's it.  For now, I'll just lament the fact that stinkin' Tangled didn't come out in time for me to get the idea.

Blaming Disney for my dissatisfaction,


  1. I believe Disney is the cause for many young women's dissatisfaction.

  2. Birth of a first child? Then it'd really be like Tangled.

  3. @freeisalark,

    That is a wonderful idea! Hmm... Oh! Another choice - completion of a PhD. Eh?? Because, at least for H & I, that one is more likely to happen within the time frame for me remembering this idea :) Speaking of, I hope your little one is doing well! She's growing so fast!

  4. It looks so pretty....but the whole paper-lantern-with-fire-in-it thing makes me nervous. How do they not turn into a big hot fire ball ready to take you down in a blaze of glory!?!?

  5. Ah, I didn't know y'all were here for the race. I remember that it got rained out. Like the one time it's rained here in the past couple of months, and hasn't rained again since.
