The end of my year

Dearest Internet,

You are reading these words from a website called These are the first words you have read from said site in about 18 days.

I know, right?

It’s the MINI stuff gang. It’s also the end of my “year” that starts at the end of A MINI Vacation in Vegas and ends with the beginning of the next AMVIV. Most folks would call that vacation. For our purposes here, we can use that word too.

In fairness, I’ve been busy with MINI Cooper stuff, but most of you already know that since you follow along at those places. For those of you that don’t know, I’m kinda famous in the land of the MINI Cooper and have been covering dealer grand openings, helping to plan a rally going from one end of the United States to the other and prep for, what we hope will be, a very cool party next Saturday night at Alliante Station in North Las Vegas.

I’m really looking forward to my vacation. I get to hang out with some of the coolest people that were ever invented and almost all of them drive some wicked cool cars. I will have too many adult beverages and say something that could be construed as inappropriate. I will get sunburned because I’m too macho stupid to wear sunscreen. I will not get enough sleep. I will make people laugh, in person. I will shoot video, most of which will be shaky. Hell, if things go well, I might even talk to a hooker.

Upon my return I will set forth to clear the 6 or so posts that are in the queue right now. It’s some good stuff and as soon as my head get re-attached after I perform above said activities, I will be able to turn them into literary masterpieces for all to enjoy.

I just can’t do that right now. Hell, I’m having a hard time being clever 140 characters at a time.

If you care to follow along, you can do so at any of the regular places (links attached). If you are also going to AMVIV, please come say hi. Also, I’m pretty sure I owe you a beer. Don’t let me forget, k?

Remembering what happens in Vegas, ends up on YouTube,


PS. Nobody is in charge while I’m gone this time. Honor system rules apply. If you take the last one, it’s your job to refill it.
