New LJ Stuffs: I don't have my Facebook or Twitter linked to my LJ. So that's safe.

Family Tree Fun: Just found out that there are four Grovers in my family tree. And that's just hunting through two lines.

New Phone Fun: I now have a Crackberry. That is purple. So I named it Evil!Kenseth. I could have opted for "Crown Royal was Jamie's sponsor last year" and named it after Jamie Mac, but I'm still saving naming anything after Jamie for the whole labrador retriever thing. (You know, get one yellow lab, one chocolate lab, name one Jamie and the other Elliott.)

Current TV Fannish Obsessions: Covert Affairs has caught on for me. Of course Merlin is still on the list. Leverage is still there as well. And Fringe of course. That's everything I got obsessed with this summer. LOL Four shows. I'm good! Wait, I forgot Rizzoli and Isles (Which is sad, cause I'm watching it right this second). Five!

Sleep Deprivation At Work

What happens when in the course of 48 hours you sleep five hours and work 24?

You go to McDonald's and order a "Large Oreo McMurray".

(The irony is that McDonald's just recently sponsored McMurray's car. I wasn't even thinking of that. I just wanted a McFlurry.)

Luckily the lady in the drive through was too busy dealing with her inability to speak (laryngitis, and they put her in the drive through) to notice what I said.

Things that are important regarding NASCAR and Twitter.

1. Jamie Mac is on Twitter (finally!).

2. Jamie Mac finally followed someone on Twitter.

3. Jamie Mac followed Elliott Sadler, who is also following Jamie. (Yes, my slashy little heart is anticipating with glee.)

4. Jamie Mac followed Juan Pablo. (I DON'T EVEN!)

I actually had awesome things to say, but in short, the banter at the end was hysterical (and you can tell it was totally ad libbed). And the x-ray machine part? OMG. I screamed laughter SO loud.

Looking for a song: Mrs. Berry by Hurricane Chris.

I've been told there's two versions, with the Mrs. Berry version being the rarer version. That's the one I need. (My sister got married and guess what her new last name is...)

NASCAR

I'm a gleeful girl. Just now watching RaceDay from this past Sunday, and all my dreams are coming true. Upon finding out that Jamie was driving the Bass Pro Shops car for sure, Ellyut invited him up to go hunting for four or five days. (No word if Jamie is going to give nursery decorating tips in exchange.) I swear, of the things I requested for Yuletide, two are already coming true!!!!

NASCAR

Holy freaking hell, Jamie McMurray!!!!!

*freaks*

Also, Chad must have paid that medicine man something to slip in a "ensure Jimmie does well" bit o' mojo.

Honestly, I was happy with the race in terms of who all was running well. And for the first portion of the race I was loving the racing. It's important to note that four guys were not going to win the race, no matter what: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch. Why? Because they're great at plate tracks. And after the last plate race Jamie won, no one will work with those guys near the end. (Which begs the question - why don't the four of them make a pact and say screw everyone else? Everyone loves being pushed by them or following them to the front, but no one wants to be near them at the end because they know they can be beaten by those guys.) The only reason I didn't put Michael Waltrip on that list is because I think folks had written him off enough that they'd underestimate him and let him near the front. For evidence, see Jimmie Johnson wanting to work with Michael. Granted, I also think Jimmie wasn't too worried because Michael isn't Mark or Jeff, so not challenging him for the title.

Also, I'm dubbing that rule by NASCAR about seeing sunshine in the corners between the cars the "NASCAR PDA rule". It's very reminiscent of what our principal did in high school - yelling "I must see six inches!" at kids who were making out.

The big thing - Ryan Newman's wreck scared the ever loving crap out of me. Partially because his car kept hitting on the roof, partially because he's just so big and big guys cannot get out of cars well in that condition. Poor Krissie! Now, NASCAR, please to be explaining who these cars are suddenly getting airborne. This was not supposed to be the case.

1. Harry Potter: If you love me, you'll rec me some Ron/Hermione fics.

2. So You Think You Can Dance: Last night's ep was Hines-tastic. I so love tappers. And honestly, it's one of the few forms of dance that feels gender neutral. Bianca, Ryan and the new guy all have their own styles in tap, but there isn't something inherently girly or masculine about any of them.

3. Supernatural: SPN TONIGHT!!!!! *glee*

4. Caffeine Withdrawal: Had nothing caffeinated on Tuesday or Wednesday. Am drinking a Coke right now as I woke up with a headache. Of course, that could have been from all the sleeping (two hour naps on both days without, plus at least 10 hours' sleep each night), but either way, I don't do migraines. I can go back to no caffeine tomorrow. One Coke every three days is way better.

5. Lasik: Have an appointment for a lasik consultation next Wednesday. 90 minutes of eye dilation fun.

6. Chester: Finally, a picture of him minus hair. Sadly, the picture doesn't do the lion cut justice. Just remember, he went from hair that was about three inches long at its shortest to a foot long at its longest to this ).

7. NASCAR: So there's a BBSadler on the way. I've got money on it being a girl, because then we'll have to have a BBMcMurray and lord knows a boy would be lost on Jamie. So it would be funny if there was a baby boy McMurray.

1. Hairdresser butchered my hair today. I'm pissed. I wasn't happy when I saw it, then when I got home and truly got a bead on it, I was mad. It's too short. Way too freaking short. I don't know what the hell she was thinking. A trim does not mean completely rework my hairstyle. The good news is, I have a month and a half until my next haircut (for my sister's wedding). So I can have a talk with her before the next cut to explain what she can and cannot do with my hair.

2. I'm so desperately ready for a job that I'm actually getting mad. That plus sleep deprivation and driving a lot. 18 hours of driving in the past week alone just for job hunting. (Trip to Georgia and trip to south of the state.) One place sent out an email that they won't be contacting anyone again until OCTOBER. Fuckers.

3. My grandmother is stressed (one of her dearest friends fell down stairs and broke her neck. Yes, she's dead.), which I understand, but it's resulting in her being hypercritical. I've taken to hiding in the basement.

4. My overwhelming urge right now is to eat. Even when I'm not hungry. I want food. Because I'm unhappy and I don't know why, but food seems to be the answer. Except I'm refusing to go that route, as we all know where it ends up. My biggest hope is that next weekend will make up for the crappy.

5. Next weekend is a trip to the beach for my sister. 7 or 8 of us in a condo. The annoying part is that one car is leaving at 7 a.m. and plans on spending all day on teh beach. Car number two leaves at 6 p.m. Quite honestly, I don't want to leave early, but I don't want to leave late. I'd like to leave midday. And I've been in such a bad mood that I'm wondering if maybe I should drive separately. Gotta see about that.

So, something that pleases me...

I adore Jamie McMurray, but he totally reminds me of a teenage girl or a golden retriever puppy. Also, Jamie ass shot.

Had to take mom to the doctor this morning. She apparently went blind for a little bit last weekend. It has now been determined that it's not her eyes (says the neuro-opthomologist from UNC Health Care). She has another appointment this afternoon to determine if it's blood clots.

It's depressing to find out that I weigh ten pounds more than Mark Martin.

It's even more depressing to find out that I weigh ten pounds more than AJ Allmendinger.

I'm not even asking about Jamie.

ETA: Crew chief change for Junior. To Lance McGrew. *head tilt* Kind of didn't see that one coming. McGrew, that is. I thought someone would get poached from the 48 camp. Hmmm. At least Tony Eury Jr. is still at Hendrick. Although I bet there are some teams (Mikey especially) already angling to get him.

1. Anyone see Ingrid's new haircut yesterday? (Granted, DW and Co. all noted it as well, so if you were at the race you missed it.)

2. At the very very very end of NASCAR Raceday they had Hermie interviewing Ellyut and Jamie together. And Hermie yet again made Jamie almost choke on his water. Good times.

3. The truck race is a wreckfest. *sigh* I kind of haven't been paying attention. I need to pay attention, though, to line up for these races ahead of time. Ken Schrader is in it. I should have been up there trying to get his autograph for my uncle.

The USPS hijacked my fabric shipment. I might, just might, get it today. There's a sage knit for a long dress and a black on white floral knit for a short dress. Not to mention I finally cut out the pattern yesterday and have a more casual simple cotton to make a long dress with (for super casual wear).

Two NASCAR news items of note

1. Jamie Mac and Juan Pablo are feuding? But Jamie isn't sure why? Even though Juan was trying to apologize for something? I'm sorry, but the whole story is convoluted and I can't stop laughing. Either Jamie is clueless about what the incident was that Juan was apologizing for, so his confusion was mistaken by Juan, or Jamie's pissed and didn't feel like dealing with him (and Jamie that pissed is PISSED) and Juan isn't taking the rebuff well. Either way, I want to see the Juan on Ellyut fight. (What? Jamie's not fighting that fight. Ellyut will step in and whoop ass. And then Stremme will come over and...yeah, this could turn into porn quickly, so I'll stop.)

2. So the US F1 team is considering Allmendinger or Speed, but not Kyle Busch or Danica Patrick. The reasons why they're not considering Danica weren't detailed, but the supposed reason they're not considering Kyle is a lack of open wheel experience? Really? REALLY? Guys, I adore AJ. I like Scott Speed. They both have talent. But I'm going to be honest - if you think that Kyle Busch's lack of open wheel experience means he's not good enough of a driver, you're fucking nuts. Test him first. Unless you've approached him and commitments on his part mean he's not interested (which would be highly likely). Just don't act like he's lacking some sort of special skill that no one else can handle but open wheelers, because the honest truth is, a gifted driver can drive in any series. NASCAR is obviously the more magnanimous group if we can take open wheelers and welcome them but even a US team can't accept Kyle into F1. (Tis an argument that feels bigger than Kyle, to me. It's about F1 stereotyping NASCAR.) Hell, let's see you tell Tony Stewart that he's not good enough for F1 because of a lack of experience. (I'd bet they'd be stupid enough to. Even though he has raced open wheel.)

I slept 13 hours last night. Just got up at 11.

I blame the dirty dream I had. About Michael Waltrip.

(Knowing too much about Mikey and his dirty mind apparently combined with hormones to create that dream. I don't know! I was watching House Hunters before bed! There is no reason!)

At least my brain kept things realistic. And he only got to second base.

ETA: Biffle has the flu. McMurray has the flu. I call shenanigans if Sadler pops up with the flu next.

NASCAR Items of Note

1. Dear DW or whoever: thanks for giving me all the porn tonight. Especially fun was Squirting Harvick. Don't know how you managed that one, but damn.

2. Jamie!

3. Wreck number one taking out all the rookies and Robby Gordon is kind of funny.

4. Sadly, no reports that Tony ended up in the 20 pit while on the radio asking Zippy why he's being so quiet.

5. I missed NASCAR. I missed the nonsensical ramblings of the crew. I missed the sound of the cars. I missed "Boogity boogity boogity". It's downright giddymaking to have it all back.

6. Proving I might be weirder than Scott Speed, when Kenseth, Edwards and McMurray were all in line (second through fourth), I said something about the Three Muskateers, Bubbles said something about "who's the defrocked priest" and it was on. For the record, if you're going to take the Roushkateers and turn them into muskateers, Jamie is quite obviously D'Artagnan (come on, he screams Chris O'Donnell) and if anyone's a defrocked priest, it's Edwards. Still haven't figured out if Kenseth is Keifer Sutherland or Oliver Platt, though.

7. There are no excuses for commercials that talk about Kasey Kahne dominating.

60 Most Beautiful People in NASCAR

Number 6: Jamie McMurray



I know many of you are stunned, especially in light of all that hotness in the picture above. It's Jamie! He is wee and he is hot! And you love him, Heather!

I do. I do love my Jamie Mac. And he is hot as hell and has forearms that are fiiiiiine and that little curl in his lip drives me nuts (in a good way) and when he bites down on crap I want to die (or tackle him). Seriously, he's so freaking hot.

And still only number six.

Dear NASCAR.com Superstore,

There is something intrinsically wrong about having NASCAR candy cane ornaments for several drivers, but not for Kasey Kahne.

Also, for the record, I kind of sort of would have preferred just slightly to be sending my dad images of a Biffle or Jamie Mac or Vickers optical mouse shaped like a car. At least you let me choose between the AMP paint scheme and the National Guard paint scheme. Hopefully my dad will laugh and get it for me. *g* (I asked dad for an optical mouse. We'll ignore that he loaned me one to test that I haven't used yet.)

I'm also very tempted by the NASCAR Santa hats. I may need to back away from the store now.

(Ooohhh! Flannel jammies!)
