Look Ma, I'm driving now!

I'm Doctawife - Chris' less savory half. And yes, I'm really a doctor. Due to the Test of Massive Proportion - henceforth known as the TOMP - I couldn't drive in the last race. I was around for almost all of the ill-conceived machinations... but I didn't get to take part in of any of the fun.

This year will be different.

I'm driving, bitches, so get out of my way!

My super-sexy way, I might add. I just bought a stylin' race suit from Wesco Performance. And I do mean stylin' - black and pink with European epaulets. Aww yeah.

In order to preserve legitimacy in the face of my overwhelming PINKNESS I have actually gotten dirty on the new car. The new ride isn't for us - Chris and I are still faithful to the Tetanus. We've acquired so many new drivers that we need two cars. The second car has no name as of yet, but we've already inflicted some serious damage. More damage in three weeks than we did in three months on Tetanus, as a matter of fact. I personally take most of the credit for removing the radiator, the power steering reservoir/pump and the AC compressor. Some of those parts might actually be intact enough for resale! Our buddies Duy and Chuck removed the windows and power window motors, while Juan and Ramon Jr decimated the interior.

I must admit, however, that while I was productive, I was also a leeeeetle clutzy. I managed to strategically drop a socket into the power steering fluid reservoir from the windshield. Luckily, the oil filler wasn't open... it is perilously close to the fluid reservoir and would have been MUCH worse. And then I got to smash the reservoir to get the socket out. Big fun. ;)
