He Called Me Starlight, But You Can Call Me Lacey

Last night... so much fun. Going to require a full-on post when I have time to stop and rethink the whole thing. A precurser... the evening involved wigs, fake names, free drinks, and dancing with younger men...

First Race Ever

Watched first race ever with Rich and Zak at Rich’s place, kinda cool… a bit hungover, but oh well...
Rich made homemade pizze that had more cheese on it that any pizza deserves. It was great! We watched NASCAR on one tv and Indy on the other. The stands at the NASCAR race looked incredibly emplty. We felt kinda sorry for them. Zak explained the ins and outs of basic racing and both guys were helpful in keeping me posted on why there were flags, what they meant, and what that meant for the other drivers. There is far more strategy and engineering involved than I would have guessed. The intricate things they do for a few points or that tiny advantage is intense.

Designated Driver

Who doesn't love being the DD? I mean you get to watch other people do stupid things, owe way less of a bar tab, and... okay, let's get real. Nobody wants to be the DD. It just happens to some of us. I think the trick is being the first person to get drunk. That way when things start going downhill, you are already exempt from being the DD. But I have to ask myself... so I trust the others to see that someone has to stay sober? I guess I don't so I should just continue to stay sober and laugh at my sad little existence.

Blury, but you can see the color... sorta



This could have been a mistake


It's called Warm Earth... Should I stop now or just go ahead and finish and hope it grows on me?

Picture of Superstretch taken from the middle of Lake Lloyd RV Parking. The lake was man made and the dirt that they dug out was used to create the banking in the track.

This picture shows about half the length of Lake Lloyd. During the Rolex 24 event, they have water ski shows on the lake.


This picture and the next show the length of the Superstretch.


This is one of the tunnels that goes under the track for people to get in and out of the infield.

I am a bigger fan of Kenny Chesney's Keg in The Closet. If we're gonna sing, let's sing about something we are familiar with.

The balance between looks and brains



The idea that there is some connection between looks and brains and the reciprocal value of each makes me hope that I'm a little bit ugly.

Picture of Painting for Lewis


If you want it bigger, you might just have to cut and paste. I couldn't get a better color. Maybe I can try again during the day when there is actual sun instead of early evening tropical storm light.

The new place

Koda likes to chase the ducks that are in the pond at the apartment. He doesn't get too far due to his leash...
... and as soon as the ducks move, he runs away too. What a big baby. He is getting more brave with time, but I don't think he will ever catch one and be happy about it. He actually fell into the edge of the pond last night...
The apartments make a huge circle around the pond. The apartment manager said there used to be an aligator... I can't decide if she was trying to be funny or if she was serious.
More pictures of the pond...

The New Place... Again

Oh the exciting view of the apartment from my usual parking spot. I know you can hardly contain your excitement.
And another closer look... I have hung up my chinese lanterns, but have yet to replace the lights inside so I have lightless lanterns. A little sad for me, but who really cares?
Only one picture of the kitchen. It is about as boring as any apartment kitchen... sink, cabinets, stove, oven, dishwasher, and fridge...
I am loving the screened in porch! It is big enough for my bike, a chair, and a ton of other crap. There is also a nice little storage closet where I put all the empty storage bins that I used to move.
How many pictures of the same pond can a girl take?

Inside

THis is the living/dining area. As you can see, I'm not really utilizing the dining area. That's because I don't have money for good food, so having a nice place to eat is depressing. But, I do have good books and a nice desk... so welcome to my mini office! THe chair is from my nana and the dog toy is the Koda's.
Here you can see the chair I got from my mom, the lamp fom Michel, and the chair out of my bedroom. I know. Nothing matches. But the painting on the wall has so many colors that really everything matches... at least that is what I am telling myself.
This is the best closet I have ever seen!
Living room again...
This is the best closet ever! My clothes are sorted by sleeve length and color on one side and pants by color on the other. How great is that? And the ironing board hangs on the inside of the closet door right by a plug. I am in live with my closet... seriously.

And then there were these...

I have always wanted a see-through shower curtain. The translucent curtain was as far as I am ready to go though.
Have I mentioned that this is the best closet ever?
Bed, sunflower, chest...
I suck. Sometimes my pictures are all blury. Thanks to my brothers for pointing out my short comings. I love you too.
One more picture of the "office space" only because Koda was being so cute. And yes, Lewis, that is a naked woman on my wall.

Some pictures for my mom

Proof that we are both alive... unless Koda has figured out the auto timer on the camera.

Favorite Driver


I have decided that if I want to fit in a little better at work I really ought to pick a favorite driver. Basically, I looked through a book of drivers until I found one that was pretty cute. Now I know, there are other hot drivers, but you all know the type I go for... so the winner is...

Carl Edwards

Edwards drive the 99 car for Roush. His sponsor is office depot. And apparently he is dating Amanda Beard... former Olympic swimmer and model. This does throw a bit of a wrench in his appeal, but since she is listed as swimmer before model, I'll let it slide this time.
