I Was Soooo Not Last!



Perspective is an amazing thing. I'm so glad I did this race. I'm not kidding. Look I got 776 Grand Prix Points, for pete's sake!

So I was 10th from last. I was 7th from last. I was 8th of 10. But I was not last! And you know what? I was running my own race. OK, it happened to be in the middle of an actual, you know, race. But I was giving it my all and doing my best. Not always typical of moi. So I'm happy!

In other happy news, why do I always have things growing out of my head in Christmas photos?

(My best boys B. and D. Happy Christmas!)

You got something from FARC? Aren't they some kinda outlaw gorrilla group or something?

I never got 776 points ever from anything, not even from the old way they scored the SATs with a base of 1600 to start from (that was a long time ago, way before your time). (That's why I went to CU in Boulder, not some school in Boston.) Geez. (Oops, resist urge to display humor.) Congrats on all those Gran Prix points, I never even got a single one of those.

Not last = great! I knew you weren't last. And you got points!

You look lovely all fancified like that and there is nothing growing out of your head. You are clearly standing in front of a tree with not 1, but 2 men. Winner!

The fact that you ran is an accomplishment itself. Doesn't matter whether you had finished 1st or last the fact is you ran. Enough said.. Love ya in that dress!
