Today is going to be an ultimate lesbian day for me. We have the Daytona 500 followed by the Oscars! I’m almost giddy writing this. To make it even better, it is quite windy outside, so no yard work for me. So, perfect excuse to be lazy. I’m sitting here typing with a hot mocha, laptop on my lap, big screen TV on. My wife is next to me with both her smart phone and tablet on. I just love hanging out with her.
OK, I know NASCAR isn’t the most popular thing, but hang with me. Butch me loves the loud cars. They have this new “gyroscopic camera” in the cars that lets you see just how steep the banking is in the turns. That’s actually pretty cool. The lead up and driver’s stories are as good as a soap opera. We have the first ever woman on the pole.
And, she’s the very hot Danica Patrick. And she’s dating some other rookie driver. Drama baby. After the first few pit stops, I’ll do my very favorite “napping to NASCAR” (BEST naps ever), then wake up in time to watch the last 50 laps or so. So, I get the most exciting parts of the race and a good nap all rolled into one.
Then, a little break to exercise, do some cooking (dinner plus some pre-cooking for the week) then I settle in for the red-carpet. Race around getting everything done for the week ahead.
By then, my total girly-girl daughter will be home. That will allow my inner-femme to come out and we can get some serious bonding in. We will analyze the hell out of the women and their dresses. I’ll put up with her commentary on that boy from the Hunger Games she’s still in love with.
There are lots of other activities that could make for a great day, and in the grand scheme, this will never be the greatest day. But, hot damn, I’m looking forward to enjoying today. Maybe even more than Super Bowl Sunday.
