All I want for Christmas is for you to somehow PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS!!!
Enjoy the cookies & carrots.
I mean seriously, come ON!! Just how many more blows are we expected to take? I feel like that blow up Popeye boxing thingy I had as a kid. *smack!* *twap!* *blam!* *whack!* Who knew the intestinal fortitude that would be required to be a race fan in 2008/2009. My gawd, I don’t know about you all, but I’m spent.
No really, I’m zonked, but I thought I should chime in and let y’all know I hadn’t dropped off the planet. I’ve been working like a dog the past couple of weeks (thankfully), with lots of overtime this week, squeezing every last drop of $$ out of this seasonal job. (which is going to end sooner than I care to think about)
This of course means that I’m nowhere near my computer for 10 – 12hrs of the day, seriously limiting my blog surfing and racing news exponentially. The irony of course is that stepping away from it all for a bit actually refreshed me a little. I was starting to feel excited again, looking forward to the new year… but these weekly sucker punches keep taking me down man.
The possibility of employment in racing in 09 seems more far fetched than ever. The chances of me being anywhere near the 24 in January were flushed this week. And now one of the races that I could actually reasonably afford even on a tight budget has been canceled. (my own disappointment aside, I feel bad for the Detroit Grand Prix staff)
oh and what the fuck is up with Formula 1?? It is having an identity crisis of Sybil proportions. It’s like they put 50 “changes we could make” on one of those carnival wheels and spun in succession until they had come up with what they felt was a reasonable number.
OH and happy belated B-day to my bud PT. Here’s to bigger and better things for you in 2009.
anyhoo… I can barely focus at the moment, (picture being on a treadmill while flapping your arms, for 11 hours… that was my day) so I’ll refrain from babbling anymore than I have.
Will try to drop in again soon. (will have plenty of time come January… *sigh* )
TGIF! For those beginning their xmas holidays… have fun, be safe.
