Actually Chris, you were at MY table!!! LOL!

Had a great time man. Hope you had a safe trip back. Mine was uneventful, except for a damn speeding ticket in Texas like 3 hours away from my house!!! ARRGH!

Had a great time at the Mitty too. Chris and Mike, thanks for the hospitality fellas. We need to do it again, and soon!

You were drinking soda (or tea), weren't you????

Dinner was awesome though, I was laughing my *** off, and still don't completely have my voice back.

Haha you didn't want me operating your clutch with a couple beers in my system.
Besides the beers back at the track were free.

Oh that sucks Paul! Getting tickets in other states is only a bit bitter since they're much less likely to report (I've had my fair share). Great to meet ya as well!

I should have let a couple of you try mine...guarunteed to stall at least the first two times

Yeah man, I got it all sorted out already. Was able to pay online, so it's a done deal...

You think you may ever get a chance to go to OKC? I'm thinking of doing a track day at Hallett at the end of the month...

Let me know if you are interested

It was good to meet some more guys from the forum. And it was good to visit with a few of the familiar folks as well. LB, I hope your boyfriend didn't think I was hogging your conversation time much. "The pastry" on the other side of me was staying at my place and had ridden with me to TacoMac, so we had already talked a bunch. I didn't think anything about it, but Tasty said I was hogging one of the only females conversationally, lol.

After slamming a water because I was dehydrated, I had one of their frozen margaritas, which was really light on the sauce. They didn't have my first choice for liquor so I had to follow it with a Jack on the rocks just to catch up. I'm not into the beer as much when the weather starts heating up.

Was anyone that made it back to the track afterward impressed by the entertainment in the Hella "After Dark" tent? There wasn't enough free beer in the tent to overcome the vocals emanating from the pig farmer with the guitar. For those that might not have been graced with the opportunity to witness the spectacle, the entertainer was a very large older fellow, roughly 6'3" 300lbs, with overalls, a beard, and a smallish looking guitar (or maybe it looked small in front of him). He had a voice like a smooth gravel road due to years of chain smoking and hard liquor and when he hit the high notes, look out, a falsetto like a partially clogged Hoover at full suck. Molly Hatchet be damned, he was bound and determined to force cover songs well out of his limited vocal range. "Dave Matthews? Yeah, I can play it." ...Oh, really?

I decided to collect my free beer and stand wayyyy over near the port-a-potties where a couple of the DIY Autotune fellas were inconspicuously trying to earn a few bucks for gas money and Lars was trying to talk them down. Don't judge me, Tasty Danish had spent so much time talking about flying seamen (I'm sorry, naval aviators), the price was right and it took my mind off of the music. Don't let the DIY guys tell you that they are only programmers. Those boys are amazing tuners. If your flute ever gets a little flat, get it tuned up by one of those fellers. I was thinking at the time it would have been appropriate if the pig farmer broke into some Cheap Trick. Anyhoo, good times.

Nah, you were fine Steve. I have to put up with Steve's *** all day long and he was all wrapped up in Dave's (OldGrayFrog) SEAL stories anyways!

Though we missed being serenaded on Sat. night by the rather large fellow with the voice of one-thousand screaming roosters stuffed in a pillowcase, we did get our fill on Friday night for the Mazda party. Steve, good to see ya again, too bad I was sitting just far enough away that holding a conversation would have meant yelling across a few other people. Kinda wish we had all left the tables a bit sooner to engage in conversation outside where it was easier to maneuver from one peron to another.

Also Steve, if you guys (including other MT'ers) ever want to come up for a mtn. run or day near the city, let me know and I'll rally a few people up for a BBQ at the house.

I was having trouble speaking up anyway because my throat was bothering me. I appreciate the hospitality and the invite. I'll let you know the next time I drag some reprobates up that way and we'll see what sort of trouble finds us.

And sorry about crashing the FM TacoMac event. I wasn't planning on going but was convinced by a well-meaning someone I should and that you likely had some no-shows so space wouldn't be an issue. But space was an issue. I'm glad it worked out. Tasty and I were starting to move to the table behind us when that other group came in, but those guys started for it as we were getting up so we stayed put. I'm really glad I went.

Aye Sir, you're always welcome and weren't a problem by any means. I think it's funny how FM was inviting people at the track lol Not that it's a bother, we did get everyone seated. We really didn't take into consideration the V8R guys nor the people who caught wind of the dinner around the FM tent. 'Twas a great weekend.

Oh and Satisfying Early Day Sugary Pastry didn't RSVP in this thread either

I know and I felt terrible, but Steve threatened to play "just the tip" again if I didn't go, and we all know, it's NEVER just the tip with him. I never knew there was so much meaning behind his screen-name.

It was nice eating and making merry with ya'll, even if you didn't buy into my "mall hoez" idea.
(that hella party would have been great with a group of 10-15 of us, at a table, drunk, heckling the guy, otherwise, no dice).

Don't play coy in front of the forum members. I merely hinted at going down to the basement of the lakehouse to play "Lambs" and ten minutes later he was dancing around in nothing but a black feather boa with his manhood tucked and eyeshadow on doing his best "Buffalo Bill" impression. I still can't get over the way he says "prrreshhhuss" with his lips pursed and pouty like that. "It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again."

Don't play coy or I'll call you out. You know your danish ain't the only thing that's tasty.

I think we both know that me liking to play lambs, and you having no restraint are 2 separate issues, and I would appreciate if you didn't confuse them, especially in public!!!!1111!
