BeaveRun Drift Riot 2004

March 30, 2004

holy fuck.
amazing.
absofuckingloutely amazing.
i pity those who didn’t go.
friday: i got in to work a little late, nobody cared. and by a little late i mean an hour and a half. i spent the day tying up loose ends and packing the crap in my office. my boss and everyone took me out to a 2.5hour lunch complements of the unisys corporate expense account. \m/ rock. they got me little presents too since it was my ‘last official full-time day’ and a $50 amex gift card because ‘we wanted to get you something for your car but figured you’d be able to pick what you wanted better than us’ how sweet is that?? i ❤ my jobby. and they’re giving me a laptop so i can work from home because they want to keep me on part time, which means paycheckkksssss yaay.
i left work at 2pm, got back to philly, threw some clothes in a bag, and headed out for beaverun. i was supposed to meet up with justin and dimitry and his friend danny at the king of prussia rest area but i got onto the pa turnpike after them and we were tryin to figure out where i wa
s and i was like dude i swear i am ahead of you, and they’re like no keep driving you’ll see us. turns out i was right and i was like 30 miles past them, so i had to drive like 45mph on the highway so they could catch up. i got passed by a prius like i was standing still. that’s not good for the ego 😦
so eventually they caught up to me on the highway somewhere in pennsyltucky. the air smelled like cows. it was weird. very weird. i saw an amish horse and buggy on the service road. i thought i was going to get serial killed. eventually we caught up to the other guys in the caravan as well, and drove out in a big group with them. one of the guys’ truck (mo) broke down though, so that really sucked 😦 all in all it was a great drive, i had a blast. got out to the hotel around 1030pm, checked in to my room, met up with everyone, had a few beers, relaxed, partied, had a great time. damien was being a jerk, apparently he got pissy with me because he ‘was trying to say hello for 5 minutes’ and i was ignoring him. uh no, i just didn’t see him and i really don’t give a shit anyway. whatever. he sucks. fuck it.
so jay and his friends came down from buffalo, it was so great seein him. he’s an awesome guy <3<3<3 mad people crashed in our room, we were up alllll night laughin and partyin and havin a good time. it was great. king suite what what! we had like 6 guys in the room, four on the floor and me and
jay and joel in the bed. spoooooning. 😀
saturday: woke up waaaay too early to dave’s obnoxious ass cell phone going ‘hello, hello, hello, hello…’ i wanted to shoot it. drove down to beaverun motorsports complex to begin the day. man it was a blast. tons of cars, tons of friends, tons of fun. i had such a great time. i can’t even begin to describe it.
for pictures: http://www.g20nyc.com/IFX/beaverun
our boy anthony did incerdible. he took third in the competition. he’s 17. and he drives with an open diff. the boy is amazing. i’m so proud of him.
i met a lot of new people i had been talkin to on the forum, and of course, they were all wonderful.
after the event we all went out to dinner. that was a blast too, we owned that place. it was crazy.
came back to the hotel, had a few more beers, partied a lot more, watched some videos from the event, looked at pics, and passed the hell out b/c we were all so exhausted.
sunday: drove back… caravan’ed with all the ny guys. i went about 75miles outta my way driving with them, but it was really worth it.
so we stopped at cracker barrel for lunch and there was this amaaaaazingly gorgeous white sileighty w/kouki tails and a cf hood that i parked next to. he had competed at beaverun and i was just so impressed with the car. turns out it was this car that was on the forum a week ago and was absolute shit, i cou
ldn’t believe what he had done in a week. he was really sweet 🙂
so there was also this car competing at beaverun, this red s13 with a blue front bumper, and the guy was reaaallllly fucking good, and i was like damn impressed. so we’re at the barrel and the car was there and this reealllly cute guy walks up to me and is like ‘hey are you ainsley’ and i’m like yeah who are you and he’s like ‘it’s erik from dg’ and i’m like uhh erik from florida who hooked me up with my coilovers? and he’s like ‘yeah i drove up for the event’ (erik is the president of dgtrials) and i was like omggg hiiiiii 😀 it was so totally random. but yeah he’s a cutie. sucks he lives in fucking florida!! grr. o well.
so yeah, the drive back was fun, like 30 cars caravn’ing. jay gave me his radar detector (thanks jay!) which saved my ass a bunch of times. got home around 8pm…
met the new roomie, she’s pretty damn chill, i think i’ll be able to live with this girl. it was great to see maddy, i’m SO glad she’s back and i’m so glad she’s my roomie *fart* 😀 she got me an awesome hat from london, the same one joey from friends bought when they went there for ross & emily’s wedding. yep, the huge dr. suess hat with a huge british flag on it. it’s hardcore. thanks maddy!!!
monday/today: first day of classes. slept till 1030am woo first time i’ve done that
in like six months. literally. woke up, talked to erik for a bit he’s comin to DOW on wednesday yaaaay then got dressed and went to class. my communications class is gonna be easy as shit cause i had the professor for humanities last year. my nihongo professor is this awesome little asian woman. it’s gonna be hard but i think i can manage, it’ll be fun. thanks to lex for teachin me some stuff and giving me a headstart, i did well today. went to staples with erin (the new roomie) and i picked up this bangin printer for like $110 because my old printer was very homosexual. it does all this crazy stuff and it has lots of buttons. it made me happy.
tomorrow i’ve got two classes, business and economics. lame. boring. whatever, should be easy.
i can’t wait for drift out wednesday… woot!

March 25, 2004

so tomorrow’s the beginning of beaverun…
i’m really looking forward to it. however, there is one reason that i am dreading going. i really really don’t want to go b/c of this reason. and i’m sure as hell not going to tell anyone b/c talking about it upsets the hell outta me.
but on another note… coilovers are nice. lex is teaching me nihongo. hai, watashi wa biiru ga nomimasu. genki desu. 😀 and he got me a bangin external zip drive. bestphillyfriend evAr!!
and apparently i’m getting a laptop from my job so that i can work from home since i’m not leaving.. oh well.
i’m so fucking sick of being retardedly busy. i never have a free minute to myself. all this shit with drexel is driving me nuts. and the other drama(s). i kinda wish i could go back in time and not answer my cellphone that day… that would fix everything.

venting.

March 24, 2004

so it’s wednesday…. i *thought* friday was going to be my last day of work, but apprently my job hasn’t gotten a co-op from drexel yet to fill my position, so that means i get to keep working here while taking an assload of classes… yay & grr.
classes start monday, but because drexhell sucks more dick that a fag in a dick sucking marathon competition, i don’t even know if i will be able to start…
i registered for classes back in february when i was supposed to. everyone who goes here will know how hard that is. you have to first find the classes you want to take and that are required to take and are allowed to take due to major restrictions and class requirements and whatnot. then you have to somehow get them to all fit in a schedule. then you have to spend another three hours doing that because i guarentee most if not all of the classes will be full. then you have to logon to the online registration site at the exact same time that every single other student on campus is trying to do the same thing, and battle downed webpages that hang for 20 minutes at a t
ime to try and register for those classes, ultimately being rejected b/c someone else beat you to it and you have to repeat the whole process about 5+ times.
so i managed to get a schedule and classes that i really liked. great. i was set.
a month later, i get an email from someone stating that the japanese course i had signed up for was moved due to a scheduling problem however it did not create a time conflict with any of the students who had registered for it. great. i’m still in the clear.
a week later, i get another email stating ‘oh yea, it conflicted for you, so you have two classes at the exact same time now’ so i was like um okay well what are the other times the class is available i will just move it and after some legwork i found none of the other available times fit into my schedule either.
so registration opens again today and i *should* be able to go and rearrange some things, but apparently i have a hold on my fucking records which i just found out THREE DAYS AGO because drexel fucking sucks. they’ve known since september and just now told me, so i can’t fucking change anything in my schedule let alone access it and i am kinda freaking out b/c classes start monday and i am fucked.
royally.
but on a better note, me and lex hung out last night and we build a killer webpage for him and woo it was fun i am a nerd. bigtime.

i <3 DGTrials!

March 23, 2004

holy fastest shipping evAr!!
i ordered my daiyama coilovers from stan & the DGtrials.com guys…
go to ups.com and put in ‘ W758 8032 814’ as a tracking number.
Taiwan to my door in one day!! holy crap i am shocked.

another update

March 22, 2004

thursday: me and lex went to dinner, it’s so nice being able to hang out with him again. i really enjoy his company so much. it’s nice to have one of my best friends back in my life… 🙂
after dinner we went back to his apartment where i got to play auto modellista (woo!) and got an R32 painted the exact same color as my car and then i put some bronze LM GT4s on it and omg omg omg it looked soooo gooodddddd now I’m really excited about my wheels coming 😀
after video games and me messing around with an obnoxiously pink skyline, we went down to west river drive to take some ill night pictures of lex’s car (which can be seen here) and it was fun.
then damien called and said him and dan were coming to philly since he finally got the s14 running (although it did catch on fire *again*, which is fire #8) they got down here just as me and alex were finishing up with the photoshoot. so we grabbed steve and we all jammed
into the s14 (which is not an easy thing to do) and headed down to pats&genos to get steaks. they left here around 1030pm b/c damien had work and still had like a 1.5 hour drive back to edison. it was so nice seeing him though… i ❤ kissing him. there’s just something about him that i really like, i don’t know what it is, but everytime i see him i feel like i’m 5. and it really fucking sucks b/c i wish i could just get over him already!! grr.
friday: so i woke up at 7am to go to work, and it was blizzarding outside. so i said fuck this and went back to sleep. woke up at 8, still blizzarding. still blizzarding at 9 and 10am as well, and i gave up and just slept all day. when i woke up at 1pm, it was sunny as hell, all the snow was melted, and i was like oh fuck i didn’t even call work… haha. i just didn’t show up. but apparently everyone else took the day off too so i am safe.
drove up to jersey, caravanned up with like 5 other cars… got to brooklyn around 9pm. the meet was really good we had a lot of people show up. we had fun with shrinkwrap. and if you weren’t there, don’t even bother asking, because it is way beyond explanation.
here’s a clip from the night:

left brooklyn around midnight b/c it was freezing cold. chilled with patrick and joe and john for a bit…
saturday%
3C/b>: call me lazy but i had to get my oil changed and well since the only tools i own are a screwdriver and a flashlight, i had to go somewhere to get it done. yep. i know. i really suck at life. but whatever. so the only place that was open was jiffy lube (haha) and omg i love that place now. i pulled up with my car with my mom and pat in it, and immediately every single guy that worked there was swarming around my car like white on rice. they were asking me all these questions and shit and loving my car it was so funny. so while the car is over the pit where they do the oilchange i was like hey can you just check the gearoil level b/c my tranny has been feeling kinda funny lately and i think it may be low. so the guy was like, screw that, girl we like you, how about we change it for ya for free. i was like fuck yeah! so i got an oil change (full synthetic) and tranny flush/refill for like $50 😀 so sometimes laziness does pay off!
after i taught my mom how to drive a stick again (yes with my car) cause she hasn’t driven manual in over about 30 years. she did really well i was very surprised, she didn’t stall once, and my car has a heavy clutch. she did however, keep trying to shift to neutral and double clutch it… i finally realized that she’s never driven a car with syncrhos! it was pretty funny, but once i clued her in on the fact you can go straight from gear to gear, she was rockin out.

sunday: drove home. cleaned the entire apartment because apparently when roommates move out (this excludes maddy) they like to leave the place a fucking mess and a half. gr. but now i have the apartment all to myself for a week! lucky me! maddy comes home saturday while i’m in ohio, and our new roommate, this chick erin, she moves in saturday too. i spoke to her once or twice she seems pretty cool… she is ‘into cars’ and drives a 97 mustang. this is gonna be interesting to say the very least…

lex knows i ❤ midgets and had me download this song “If I Owned a Midget” by Benefit. omg it is fucking hysterical it basically sums up every single reason i’ve ever wanted a midget for
I picked up this midget you know he’s very very well dressed
Italian suit good looking with a beautiful tall blond
Is it a- a lady midget
No the guy was a midget the blond was a lady
Oh the- I get it
Those midgets are funny hahaha Sometimes I’d like to hold a midget
I mean they’re funny
They always wanna sit in the front seat- Word
Life’s got me mad
But if I had a midget I’d be glad
To watch him jump around on my nintendo powerpad
He’d have a big head short legs and long torso
The name that I give my pet midget is little Gordo
I’d teach him tricks like backflips and side kicks
When company came over he’d perform and get tips
While I’m eatin at night, in the kitchen he’d be able
To get the food scraps that I threw under the table
If my midget was ever mad and acted enraged
Then I’d take him to
the bathroom and put him in his cage
But If he kept acting up and really made me sick
I’d hang him upside down and poke him with a stick
Little Gordo would be good most of the time though
He’d like to wear a helmet and run around yelling Kaiyo
I’d take him for walks in the park on the weekends
And if he saw other midgets he’d say Can we be friends
He’d only need a 3 foot coffin when he was dead
And he’d be in the guiness book for the world’s biggest head
What a funny little fellow, but don’t call him a shrimp
Or he’ll attack your leg cause Gordos a tough gimp
He’d have a pogo ball that he’d bounce on for hours
And dirty little fathead Gordo would’nt take showers
When Halloween came, he wouldn’t be a chump

Gettin all the candy goin round as a tree stump
Midget is a midget
Midget Mi-Mi-Mi-Mi-Midget
Midget is a midget
Hey you guys- Word
Midget is a midget
Midget Mi-Mi-Mi-Mi-Midget
Midget (wo-wo-wo-wo-word) is a midget
Like a midget in a urinal, I was gonna have to stay on my toes
Sometimes my friends would chase Gordo with a gun
It be fun
Because midgets wobble when they run
They’re so close to the ground and so easy to kick
They’re so slow in the head and so easy to trick
Gordo could do somersaults his special thing
At the fair I would make hi
m enter mudwrestling
Sometimes he’d wear stilts and pretend to be tall
Then I’d kick him over- and then i’d laugh at him fall
Silly little Gordo, just be yourself
I’d put wood on his head, and he’d just be a shelf
He’d do funny little dances but that’s irrelevant
At the beach Gordo got attacked by pelicans
He had a girlfriend once, but she was an ogre
It didn’t last long cause he couldn’t f**k her sober
Gordo had a problem, Gordo wet the bed
so i’d make him wear diapers on his ass and his head
He’d have to clean up his own cage himself
And if he lost a little weight he’d be a keebler elf
He’d really be something, my mangled little munchkin
Plus his head would be larger then any big pumpkin
This perfect little fool would make a perfect footstool
Sometimes I’d kick him in his head and say ‘bitch be cool’
I’d have a great life, I’d be happy I know
If I only owned a little pet midget named Gordo

weeeeeekend

March 15, 2004

so a weekend that i thought was going to be painfully boring turned into something pretty damn fun. i am pleased. this was the first weekend in *months* where i haven’t had a bajillion plans and i was gettin worried that i wouldn’t know what to do since i had zero things to do…
friday: night me and monica got into a huge fucking fight because i am finally seeing what a fucking selfish and self-centered bitch she is. excuse-fucking-me for wanting to fucking sleep and asked her politely if she could go watch her movie in the livingroom at 1am *after* they had already woken me up. seriously is that too much to ask? well she refused and i bugged the fuck out on her because i am absolutely fucking sick of her shit. i mean what responsibility does she have? none. she skips a lot of her classes, gets drunk every night, sleeps all day, nothing. i gotta be up every day before the sun so i can drive an hour each way to work. and when i just want to rest and sleep it’s too much of an inconvenience for her? FUCK THAT. i was seriously *thisclose* to fuc
king stabbing the bitch, but i held back… kinda wish i hadn’t now.
i appologize to those i called and made listen to me bitch at like 2am. sorry guys.
saturday: well since i wasn’t allowed to sleep friday, i slept all day saturday. one b/c i was just seriously that tired, and two if i had been awake and had to see monica i woulda fucking killed her. she left around 7pm to go to yet another stupid party where she can get trashed and sleep with numerous random guys. wow that sounds like fun. NOT.
so i woke up at 7pm on friday… i’m sitting around thinking to myself, wow, this is gonna suck. i’m home alone, ain’t nobody in philly, ain’t shit to do… what a boring night i’m gonna have.
then i was talking to alex and he was home in maryland for the weekend and i *think* he said he was going out racing to find a skyline and i said something along the lines of ‘shit i’d like to see that’ and he said ‘well come down to maryland then’ or something i don’t remember the exact conversation but basically i was like sure why not i don’t have anything else to do…
so i kidnapped steve and we drove to maryland on the spur of the moment. got there maybe 1030pm? drove around for a bit, went down to check out the street races… it was fun cause we took alex’s dad’s cadillac since his car only fits two and he was worried about me bringing my illegal car down there. ho
w considerate! 🙂 but it was awesome cause we were pimpin that shizzle. found the skyline… a silver R32. it was sexxxxxy. i wanted to rub myself on it. i’d give anything for a R32. seriously. then we went and got some food at this diner and the waiter guy was really funny, he was all singing madonna songs and whatnot, definitly random. drove around, all in all it was a really fun night.
so we went back to alex’s and crashed. i kept waking up all night though so grr i didn’t get much rest but it was fine by me b/c i was having such a good time.
sunday: we woke up, and alex’s dad was making fun of my car because she was (was!!!) so dirty… i haven’t washed it in months. so we went to the carwash and alex washed my car for me (thank you honey that was so kind i really appreciate it… she looks wonderful) and apparently my windshield is leaking from when they replaced it (grrrr) but i don’t know if i should be mad at the guy or if it’s because of the small rust spot we found… oh well.
after the wash we drove over to the university of maryland to take some pictures of me and lex’s cars and they came out REALLY well but since my loser roommate has a habit of fucking shutting my computer off, i can’t access the pictures from work to post them. hey monica if you’re reading this stop fucking touching my stuff!!!!
hrmm after the wash and the photosho
ot we went to this place the korean korner where they sell all asian food and whatnot and i got some really cool JDM coffee-in-a-can initial d style. it was really good. got a bunch of other cool japanese foods and i am actually eating a japanese wheat cake for breakfast at the moment… *yum* after the jdm food we went to this brazilian food store and we got brazilian stuff (b/c alex is brazilian) and usually i refuse to try new foods i’m very very *very* picky but b/c he means so much to be i figured the least i could do was try it. and it was really good! i was very surprised 🙂
then we went to ikea and i bought really random things b/c ikea is the best store evAr. me and steve embarassed alex by playing on the stuff… haha then afterwards we went and drifted the shopping carts b/c they can go sideways. i got a cool video of it on my digi, but of course since my loser roommate likes to touch things that don’t belong to her, so i can’t post them…
after that, we drove down to DC b/c steve wanted to see all the monuments and stuff. at one point alex lost his shoe down a hole-type-thing. good aim nigga. i got some really funny pictures of him climbing on the statues but, i’ll blame monica again here. i also got some silly tourists to take a picture of me standing in front of the white house flipping it off, but it came out really blurry 😦 bonus: there was a ferrari just sitting on the street as we
were driving around…
drove back to philly i think we got home maybe 1030pm if i remember correctly…
as i was walking in to my building my cell rang and it was damien. i was really surprised considering i hadn’t heard from him all weekend. but he’s been calling more often lately for no particular reason which makes me happy. so we talked for a good hour or so. things are going well with his car, it’s finally running, and it’s running really strong. i’m so glad. he’s been *so* stressed lately… i’m really happy things are looking up for him.
so i had a fantastic weekend. i really wasn’t expecting it at all. the roadtrip was so random, seriously it was brought up and planned within two minutes flat. but i needed it. i needed to get away and just go out and have shitloads of fun. plus i am SOOO happy me and alex are friends again, i missed hanging out with him so much, he’s such an awesome guy. i’m so content right now. i fell asleep with a smile on my face last night, and that is the first time in a long ass time that has happened…
i will update with pictures and video when i get home and can actually access my files… and most likely i’ve forgotten to write a lot of what happened this weekend b/c we did so much and i had so much fun…
thanks lex 😉

March 12, 2004

great.
apparently rays engineering CAN’T make me a set of silver LM GT4s in 16″ b/c they’re not licensed for that color by nismo or something…
so bronze it is 😦
let’s just hope they’ll look okay.
