There is No "S" in Foxfield

Sorry to have not updated you on my MDC adventures as of late, but as you can see I've been a little preoccupied :) Also, I'm going out of town to a steeplechase this weekend:



and I've been busy planning, packing, etc. I also went tanning tonight. Not regular tanning, mind you, but I tried the Versa Spa tan. I'm not really sure what to do with myself at the moment. I'm drying. Yes, I'm drying. Apparently this process takes place for 4-6 hours. I'm kindove a motivated person, and "drying" for 4-6 hours doesn't really work for me. Then again, I'm paranoid that if I move I will probably smear it or something? I also got swindled into buying some product that the woman told me would make me "glow". I just read the bottle. It says: "Look Great Naked". I'm pretty sure I just threw my money away.


Back to the steeplechase. Good times! It's in Charlottesville, VA and I go every year. It is called The Foxfield Races or Foxfield for short. So...why do so many people call it Foxfields? It bugs me. Like really, really bugs me. It's like when the rednecks living on the outskirts of Smalltown, VA say "hey now, I was over at the Walmarts today and such and such". Wal-mart isn't plural. Neither is Foxfield. You may think I'm being petty, but can I help it if my skin crawls when people say "hey T...are you going to Foxfields?". This has bothered me for years, as I've been attending this event since college.

I used to think that being in the infield at Foxfield was the best thing ever. Now I think it's too crowded. Nice to visit, but not where I want to land if you will. We've relocated our spot to the "somewhat grown up" section. Not so much the "really grown up section", where they supply you with tents and tables and servers and such. I'm saving that for when Mr. Seersucker and I make our first million. For now we are somewhere in the middle, and we bring our own tent and try to act grown up....but we still play flip cup :)

Anyway, I'm super excited about this weekend and haven't even logged onto MDC because I've so much other stuff going on, AND THEN.......I check my e-mail and there is a little note from a VERY cute face. So now I'm going to log in and see what this chap is all about and I'll be back to let you know :)

I know what you mean. When people don't speak properly, it really does drive me nuts. All that aside, I hope you have a great weekend!!

And, it's funny - I thought I was officially following you too, for some reason until I realised that I hadn't seen any updates for a while. Checked this afternoon and am I am not an official follower. Glad you're official too :)

There is also no "S" at the end of Nordstrom, Gossip Girl, or "anyway."

Spell check has turned us into a nation of morons. Only the best rise above it. :)
