weekend update- part 1

First, I must point out, if you're driving a car that has flame graphics of any sort on the car, you should be going faster than the speed limit at all times. It just makes sense. I saw a PT Cruiser last week with flame graphics on each side and it was going 25mph in a 30 zone. Your car is on fire and you're going 10mph!!

Second, what is all the fascination with the Dodge Magnum? People, it's a still a station wagon. You can make it all fancy and make it to look all "street" and hip... but it's still a station wagon. Yeah. Still not cool.

Anyway, so I went home this weekend. Jeff and I went to see Darius Rucker in concert on Friday at Elk Creek Vineyards in Owenton, KY. The concert was amazing. Probably the best concert I've ever been to - it definitely helped that Jeff snagged us 4th row seats. He did songs from his new country album (loves) and some Hootie songs (loves).

During the 2nd encore, the couple that was sitting next to us left and they were quickly replaced by a drunk lady and her date. The drunk lady decided to stand on the chair next to me. Dude, we're in the 4th row... really... do you need to stand on the seat? Since this concert was at a vineyard, they served wine at the concert. Here's the set up, drunk lady standing on chair next to me, drinking red wine, I'm wearing a white sweater. She starts laughing and sprays my left side with red wine. Face, sweater, arm. Nice. Darius Rucker performed Purple Rain during his 2nd encore which was kinda ironic considering all of the wine on my sweater looked like purple rain. So, I get pretty heated and the lady hands me a $20. And that is how you make $20 at a Darius Rucker concert.
