So… It has been brought to my attention that my blog has been inactive for longer than normal, causing the dt’s for some of you! Sorry bout that!
Not only am I acutely aware of that fact, but ironically I have all the time in the world to pen my thoughts these days having escaped the hell that was my day job. (Yes kids, my last day was Friday… Hallelujah)
See the thing is I haven’t felt much like writing really. Lots of things swimming around in my head of course, (always is) but nothing of any inspiration to keep y’all entertained. Actually, truth be told, I’ve been brain purging in my personal blog for a few days, clearing the cobwebs so to speak. (Saving all you racing blokes the horrors of the inner personal thoughts of the Meeshster!)
I guess I just needed a wee break to decompress post racing season. (Not that it’s over yet other than Lights) That was a lot of writing to keep up with all by my lonesome most weekends this summer, while holding down two jobs. (Between here and the website, covering 4 sometimes 5 series in a weekend)
So now we (OWW) are deciding whether or not we will continue in 09 and to what extent. (I’m sure we will)
No worries, I’ll be continuing here, at least I plan to… I guess it depends on my job situation.
I don’t know the logistics of writing an opinion blog if I actually become employed by a team. I guess if it’s in a different series I’m safe… Not that I think one should be required to lose their voice once employed, but I’m sure my future employers would feel differently.
Yes, I’m going to try to get an actual job in racing. Imagine that.
With one friend threatening bodily harm if I don’t pursue it, (hello mate!) and another telling me he thinks it’s my destiny, and my own gut telling me I will never be happy unless I’m at a track every weekend, it’s time to grow a pair and go after the dream.
So.. If anyone knows of any openings, please feel free to contact me. Likewise, if anyone wishes to be a reference, feel free as well! LOL!
Anyway, this week has been decompression week. (Not to mention season premiere week!!!)(Have I mentioned I’m a bit of a TV addict?) Lot’s of thinking, and walking and cleaning my apartment and sleeping and finding myself again. Regrouping so I can move forward with a bit more of a stable foundation.
I will get back to writing about racing post haste, I promise. I still need to review the season, the teams, the drivers, etc…
So, there ya go…
Ok, ok a little racing talk before I go:
FIA ruling… *cough* bullshit *cough*
Answer: Red Bull
Question: who won’t be getting X-mas cards from Seabass & Wallmendinger?
AJ Wallmandinger: “here’s your hat, what’s your hurry?, thanks for coming out, don’t let the door hit you on the way by.” Brutal. Hope he was smart and put a good chunk of cash into a savings account.
(I couldn’t even type that with a straight face… I’m sure his ‘advisors’ were smart though… )
Conquest racings new marketing partner is taking an interesting approach. Market an unsigned driver with the hopes of attracting sponsorship so they can actually sign the driver in their marketing brochure… Ok then… that’s an interesting choice.
alright, I just got back from the recording studio and have a couple of hours of tv to catch up on!
