No more pizza please

Its P.O.
Post Otter

We've come a long way since the days of watching the pizza bouncy houses.

I hope to have my pictures posted tonight.

That is, if I can find my camera.

I should take a picture of the back of Sputnik. Somehow, after all was said and done, we packed the last remnants of the booth into the Sput and were able to drop off the budget van empty and (sort of) clean. Thank you to all the tired crew who helped pack up last night.

Those things will probably remain in Sputnik for a few more days.

I would do one of those thank you list thingies...but I would probably leave someone out.

But if I did do one of those thank you list thingies, all the team members who came out and volunteered at the booth would be at the top of the list. We could not do this without you.

I hope everyone had a great time racing. I'm feeling a little pissed about what they did to the expert women, but I won't fill this blog with that pissed off energy right now. Maybe next post.

Vicodin kisses go out to downed bella, Julie. We're thinking about you. But please, don't send me anymore bashed in face pictures. Ewwwww.

I am hoping some race reports come in so we can plop them out here on the reports blog. I do gotta tell you one thing:
We were fucking awesome.

And I never thought I would get tired of pizza...but after three nights in a row of delivery...I am looking forward to some Indian food or something.

And some quiet time...

it was all cool on Sunday.

the rain cleared up for all the breakdown (and what would have been the finish of the XC racing ... if not for some lazy-ass SOC promoters).

we downed all the remaining brewskis and danced away all the supplies into their appropriate vehicles.

The Beautiful Burgess boys took most the mechy-stuff, Steve n' Lilly took all the flair and Pimped-out bikes, Vanderkitty took all the pimped out clothing, and me n' Sabine took all the dregs.

it was fun (...uh ... yeah).

and bunny...I am worthless at work today.

I did manage to go grocery shopping at lunch. I think I bought too much wine, chocolate and cheese though.

We should have taken Vanderkitty

Did you not get to race XC? That was the strangest race...maybe next year they could hold up a sign that says finish line, cause once I hit the raceway all I could see where a group of people milling around and I was like "excuse me please, could you tell me where to cross the finish line cause I'd like to get off my bike before I keel over in a cold, wet, muddy heap." Very odd.

I, on the otherhand woke up at 5 a.m. to say goodbye to my dirty rockstar guests and went back to bed at 7 a.m. If it wasn't for having to walk my dogs, I would have stayed in my pajamas all day. I mean when its two o'clock why bother? I am exhausted, now back into my pajamas. Quiet time.

I did get to race xc, but only sort of.

The course was a mess by the time we got to race and I guess us expert women were taking longer than they thought (although several of us warned them that this would happen weeks ago)And they decided to stop the expert women from doing a 2nd lap. This happened to about 2/3s of the field.

There was no warning at the race start or anywhere else that this was a possibility.

Of course, a two lap race is very different from a one lap race and anything could have happened in that second lap.

We were all pretty much cheated out of our race.
