Celebrity Celebrex

I am feeling no pain. That is not to say that there is no pain. I am just not feeling it. Mrs. Greyhound and I just finished having dinner and drinks with Nytro and Iron Benny. I had two scotches before they arrived and two afterward. That combined with a prodigious amount of tylenol and ibuprofen means I could walk on broken glass without feeling it.
Even though Nytro failed or refused to wash the race numbers from her body in order to rub in the ignominy of my DNS, it was one of the most authentically enjoyable evenings we have had in a long time. Benny and I were apparently separated at birth because we are kindred spirits. Nytro and Mrs. Greyhound finish each others' sentences and communicate in that freaky, female telepathy that reneders words redundant and frankly scares Benny and I more than we are willing to admit publicly.
Bloggy friends rock.
Both Benny and Nytro had a great race, and I have the pictures to prove it. The course was beautiful, the weather conditions were perfect, and if I had been healthy it would have been a wonderful day of racing. It kills me that I could not toe the line on such a perfect day.
I will get the pictures online in the next day or two, but right now, I am drugged and drunk out of my little canine mind and I aggravated my neck even further by whipping it around trying to follow Nytro's blinding speed as she rocked the course.
Next year she needs to do the half. Right? Give her some blogosphere love, peeps.

I'm so sorry you couldn't race, but it sounds like you had as much fun as possible. I hope your neck is healed soon, looking forward to Nytro's report.

Total bummer about the race! Ah, the best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men... and o' greyhounds...

So how much did you get when you pawned their wedding rings?

Glad you're feeling better - whatever it takes!!

Sorry to hear about the neck thing, and glad you had the sense to remove the risk of further injury by staying out of the race.

E-mail me the address you'd like my $20 sent, as I'm still supporting the cause. My aunt has MS and I was going to send the contribution regardless of the outcome of the race.

I am glad u have an enjoyable time with Benny and Nytro. I hope you get better soon.

I can't wait to see those pics...

Bolder said...

i'm ecstatic that you all got to meet up...

it's really all about the meet up, you'll see that soon enough when your alcohol-over-the-counter-possibly-not-over-the-coutner-possibly-got-it-on-a-street-corner haze wears off...

the racing is only secondary.

I'm sorry for your DNS, but that is WAY overshadowed by the jealously I feel for your meeting of the family Benny/Nytro (Bentro?)

TriBoomer said...

Bummer that you couldn't start SOMA but happy to read you had a time with Nytro and Benny. I know what you mean about the freaky, femal telepathy thing. Soon they'll be telling stories about you guys that you'd rather not be heard. Be afraid, dog, be very afraid.

Stay tuned...
