May 2, 2006

So, I've decided to become the next Tony Stewart. I'm entering the rubber-burning, bumper-banging world of racecar driving! If Frankie Muniz can race cars, why can't I? I don't have a sweet ride like Frankie does yet, since I'm not a rich celebrity and I don't have a driver's license, so I'm starting out by racing in a soapbox derby.

I ordered a soapbox car kit last week and I'm going to start putting together my new wheels this weekend. This means my racecar driving career should be hitting high gear sometime in the next month or so. Soapbox racing may seem slightly lame compared to the high-octane machines the NASCAR crews are driving - but I've got to start somewhere. Soapbox derby this year, go-karts next year, the checkered flag at the Daytona 500 in 2014!

Speaking of fast cars, there's a couple of cool racing flicks I'm looking forward to seeing this summer. Cars is an animated movie about stock cars and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby has Will Ferrell starring as a rebel NASCAR driver. I saw previews for both of them at the theater last week and they look pretty funny. So, between building cars, racing cars, and watching cars, my summer will be filled with plenty of driving action. Maybe, I'll change by name to Slick Lightning. Anyway, gotta fly... your summer plans.

Later,
Simon

    I have frizzy hair also. Normally I just put anything that says Anti-Volume in it, or Anti- Friz :p Normally that calms it down, I also have thick hair. xD

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )
