My Favorite Holiday

I adore the Fourth of July - it is my favorite holiday. I can't stand Christmas. There are a variety of reasons for that, ones that I will probably holler about at, well, Christmas.

Lots of swimming today, then fireworks, then of course, watching the race, at Daytona. I love Daytona, but I hate restrictor plates. Plate races are frustrating, and if they are for us fans, I can't imagine how they are for the drivers. Actually, I don't have to imagine, the drivers say that they hate plates. My boy is on the pole, because he is first in points and qualifying was rained out. Go Tony! His car carries the Burger King paint scheme tonight, which will be weird, seeing as I can't stand the Burger King himself. Creep. Tony looks adorable in his BK suit, though, I could take a bite or two out of him anytime.

Happy Fourth, everyone. Long live the U.S.A.!

I hope this isn't too stupid a question, but what are plate races??
Good luck to Tony!

I hate the plate races, but love the tracks where the plates are used, I also hate this car that they came up with, it was much better a few years back!

Dude, I can't hang with you on the nascar - never been. Although, I totally did watch Talledegah Nights (can't spell it) and LOVED it.

Snaps for the kitty pics. I got a fat kitty story too!

Talladega Nights is such a fun movie - I love it! "If you ain't first, you're last" - that is and always has been my motto.

You must tell your fat kitty story. Please. Please.

Oh, yes, Otin, the COT sucks, but it doesn't seem to be keeping the guys from doing what they have to do to win. Of course, 'Dega and Daytona are the bomb, but those plates . . . ugh!
