Swag Did Not Include Beer Cozy

Mr. Farklepants went out and got himself the Canon D40 which can only mean one thing:


I've inherited the D20. The pictures around here might not improve but they'll be captured with a camera that is superior to my current Pentax Optio 550. My "new" camera has so many features on it I'm pretty sure it will make me breakfast in the morning [I'm thinking: Belgian waffles]. Also, I'm gonna need a bigger purse. There's only one thing that would have made this better: If Mr. Farklepants needed a new laptop.

***********************************************





At the last minute on Saturday, Mr. Farklepants scored three tickets for Sunday's NASCAR race and took the boys. They were no ordinary tickets. They were kind of like backstage all access passes which included a luxury box and groupies, headsets to listen to the cockpit in your car of choice and playing Rock Band while you watched the race. Also there was NASCAR swag:



Most interesting fashion related question ever:

Mr. Farklepants: Am I dressed alright for NASCAR?

Well, Honey, you're a little pressed for time to grow out a mullet and get a tattoo but I could cut your Levis off just above the knee. Also, are you opposed to painting your face? Shirts are optional.

Ooooh oooh I LOVE hand-me-downs like that! I'm still trying to get my hubby to buy a new iPhone, because he deserves it. That and I want his current phone so bad that sometimes I dream about marrying it.

So funny - and nice camera.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Great camera and great seats. Bummer about the mullet, though.

very cool! my husband always made of Nascar lovers but took my son to a race because my son's a total gearhead. they left before I woke up and he calls me from the race saying...I feel so out of place! apparently he wore a BRIGHT YELLOW POLO SHIRT!...ya think? needless to say he's now a Nascar junkie and dressed appropriately went to the Daytona Coke Zero 400 in July.

I hear you on the laptop!

scargosun said...

Awesome! I bet they had a great time! I would have gone just for the swag. ;)

MamaHenClucks said...

You should have called! I'm pretty sure we have a mullet wig around here somewhere! Voila! Instant fitting in with the NACAR crowd!

My hubby would be SO JEALOUS about the NASCAR tickets! He really wants us all to go sometime. We don't have any tracks in the NW so we want to plan a trip. Oh and the Camera--AWESOME-NESS!

g said...

Ah, I'm so glad you answered the burning question of WHAT exactly NASCAR fashion is!!!

Seriously, that is funny!

And....drools...laptop love!

I love a new camera.

Down here in Arkansas...all your husband would have needed to complete the outfit, would be the kids toting the suit-case of bud-light, and a cool helmet with hoses and beer can holder...those kind of helmets are always a good investment.

That's the only way to see NASCAR.

No fake beer belly?

Stu said...

So which pair of jeans were sacrificed to make shorts?

Has he saved up enough money for the down payment on a Camaro yet?

He needs to be ready for next time.

My only knowledge or understanding of NASCAR comes from the Pixar movie CARS.

The boys must've thought they died and went to heaven.

Before Mr. Farklepants reads this and makes fun of you.... Change the "D40" and "D20" in your entry to "40D" and "20D". Then delete my comment so there's no evidence!

Mr. Farklepants said...

Wow, I read the post last night and didn't catch that. It was obviously Freudian slip since TF really wants the D40 just like dz...

Manager Mom said...

Don't forget one of those sparse, scrubby mustaches. A MUST for the well dressed Nascar fan.

Laura said...

Dressed alright for NASCAR? That's the million dollar question, and I loved your answer!

Helena said...

I'm loving the mullet comment, haha!

katydidnot said...

forget painted face, go for painted chest.

apathy lounge said...

Love your comeback!

Your Pal Pinki said...

Yeah for the cool camera! : )

Drooling over the camera. My Fuji FinePix has p*nis envy.

Since you're interested in NASCAR - thought this might be of interest to you as well:

You can enter once daily. Oh, and I'm jealous you had VIP access. I went to a race in April - and enjoyed it - but your expierience was superior to mine! haha!
