- Well unbeknownst
to us, the entire time we've been in Columbus the test
& tune day on March 26th was cancelled. Apparently
this shitty cold/rainy weather kept them from being
able to properly prepare the track so no matter what
the actual weather is on Sunday, the race ain't
happening. UGH. That allowed us to just sort of
breathe for a bit and the only real deadline
was this past Wednesday getting to Clintonville
Academy in time to be a guest speaker. Incredibly,
I was actually a little later than I wanted
to be -because of th alignment
BUT HOLY SHIT THE ALIGNMENT IS AMAZING.
I will save all that for the next "Fastest"
entry. This entry is about going BACK to Clintonville
- I went to CA
for 5th-8th grade and adored the teachers there. To be
asked to come back and talk about my various
adventurous in la-la land is incredible. Having Mrs.
Barton introduce me actually made me start to choke
up. I've spoken of it on this site before, but her
asking me to play the female opera singer in Spike
Jonze's "Glowworm" in the 6th grade talent show
with Brendan Murphy officially gave me the performance
bug. First time I felt that ROAR, that energy...
I never looked back. She means so much to me. And
now here I am trying to explain how ALL of
that turned into a minigolf course and a time machine.
That's why I have video...
- That music is
actually a piece my father and I put together
while I was at Clintonville Academy the summer
before my 8th grade year. Seemed fitting.
- So yeah a total
thrill for me and hopefully a memory for those kids.
They certainly thought it was awesome I'm on Netflix.
LMAO. That was hilarious. Though, damn - that ain't a
kid movie. Hmmm.
- Anyway - we now
look forward to tomorrow morning when we have the dyno
read for the horsepower record. Here's to a sleepless
night for me!
