Raymond, Washington

Damn you Raymond, Washington! Damn you all to hell!

I give up on this whole sticking within the speed limit business. I tried, I failed. I was so good while on the 101 highway, staying within the 55-60 mph limit, but then the 101 crossed through the city of Raymond and the speed limited dropped to 35. I didn't see the sign and accordingly didn't adjust my speed until Will hinted that I may be going too fast for the conditions. Too late, the copboy had already nabbed me. It would have been nice if copboy could have given me a warning, considering it was a holiday, but there was no mercy for the blonde Carrie (he lists me as blonde even though my license says brown, he was on drugs).

I want my 'damn you' to sound much like Charlton Heston's "damn you...damn you all to hell", so if you don't know what I am referring to, watch the clip from Planet of the Apes, then reread my first line again, because that is about the intensity I'm going for. Although if you haven't seen POTA and don't want the ending ruined for you, don't watch it. Either way, no me gusta Raymond, WA.

I know I've added a few generic clips of late, but rest assured I don't plan on making this blog into a you-tube fest. I just knew I couldn't surpass Heston's 'damn you'

woohoo! I beat Sarah to comment!

Think positively, this time you set a new record between tickets! :) something like 11 months?

Starting today, go for it, you will set a new high!

LOL to anonymous!

Loved the 'damn you'! Christopher and I actually use that often on each other! Me more than him! He thinks its a swear word and it's a regular part of my vocabulary!

Sorry to hear about the ticket. Just as 'anonymous' stated, just set a new record!

Carrie, I got on your blog to answer your question about the GU. Then I stumbled across this amazing Charlie footage. I personally think every blog needs a good 1960's sci-fi clip in it. We're lacking in our blog. We'll work on it.

Also, being the first time on this blog, I'm scared to hear there are people trying to beat my wife to post on it... and that Sariah is spreading all sorts of false information about me in these posts. Just to clarify, WE don't say the "D" word to each other all the time. SHE says Charlie's phrase to ME all the time. I don't have time to look at every other post she's put on this thing, but take it all with a grain of salt, or maybe an entire shaker, especially the ones with parts about me.

Now that that's cleared up, I sometimes use GU during a race. I tape one to my bike and eat it about 40 mins into the race. It takes about 10 minutes to work so I like having the energy at the end when I'm running and basically want to stop and go home. The past 2 races though, I've gotten stomach cramps during the run so I'm going to try the next race without anything to see if it makes a difference. I also eat a cliff bar about 2 hours before the start of the race and sometimes a banana, and wash them down with water. I haven't used shots because I can't figure out a fast way to eat them while I'm racing. But I've had some at expos before... they taste good.

Anyway, your POTA clip makes me want to add a Star Trek Next Generation clip to our blog sometime. It'll probably never make it past Sariah, but here's to dreams.
