I want to be Sheila Moon when I grow up


Sheila Moon goosed me today during the cross race.

We came up a run up together and she was giggling and laughing and sure as shit gave me a good ol goose on my arse as I scrambled up the climb.

Her sense of fun is infectious and try as I might to be in a foul mood because cross hurts and makes me drool, I giggled around the rest of the lap.

And after the race, I swung by her booth to help myself to the Speakeasy keg, when I see Sheila sitting all comfy. She is surrounded by about 8 handsome men that all call themselves Sheila Moon's boyfriends. They seem to be attending to her post race needs. She is radiant and relaxed while she props up her bare feet on a nearby chair. Her toes are all painted a delightful red and Gary Fisher, adorned in Sheila's latest skinsuit, is happily rubbing them for her. As if this is but an everyday occurance.

I love cross season.

yesterday's race was awesome. I did not flat, which judging from results, is something to feel lucky about!

The people parked next to us said something about how getting air was a waste of energy and Sheila looked at them as if they were from Mars or something.

i think it was russell who told me before the race to make sure i got some good air.

and then i think it was him who was standing there, during, yelling at me to get more air.

that was the best part.

Oh yeah - air out of the half-pipe every lap, even the practice laps! That course was fun, fun, fun. And painful! Everyone was "smiling"!

Oh, and its not a smile, its a grimace. Not happy at all.

And yes, your pain face is "perplexed" totally. Not mad...just confused.

Let me see your pain faces!

If it's fun, it's *never* a waste of energy.

Silly fools.

i guess *getting air* isn't part of the group trainer practice of the tent stealers....

we are hanging up garlic cloves to ward off tent stealers at the next race.

Well, actually fluff and flair and beer and men rubbing feet.
