Good evening to you all. This is the last Thursday Rundown before it is officially our wedding month! Let’s get started…
Futuristic Bus – This is not a joke. Trust me, this is legit. In China, they want to create buses that will drive on roads but be suspended in a way that would allow normal traffic to travel underneath. Just this picture below is nuts but type in “China futuristic bus” on Google and watch the video to really be blown away. My biggest question is how would these buses bypass tall delivery trucks and other large vehicles? If anyone can do it though, it would be the Chinese. After I watched the absolute spectacle Beijing put on for the 2008 Olympics, I am convinced there isn’t anything that country can’t do.
Small Taste of NASCAR – Last week, I went to the Charlotte Motor Speedway with a couple other people from work. Coastal Carolina University has a NASCAR Truck Series driver we sponsor (he is a student here) and we went over to cover him as he prepared and competed in the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 . Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. Heavy rains caused the postponement of the race. It was still cool to see an iconic track and meet up with our driver and his crew.
Casper: Thank you to Timehop for letting me know that the movie “Casper” hit theaters 21 years ago today. The funny thing is that Sidney and I caught the second half of the movie about a month ago. How can any of us in the 20-30 year old range ever forget when Casper becomes an actual person and dances with Christina Ricci? Definitely one of the best moments in cinematic history.
Golf Update – Last fall, I wrote about taking golf lessons. Sidney and I took them as a couple at River Oaks here in Myrtle Beach. This spring I took eight solo lessons at our golf course here at Coastal Carolina. I finished my last instruction session on Monday. The latter lessons I took at CCU made me into a much more confident golfer. In fact, I am comfortable actually hitting the course for a regular round. A co-worker and I hit the links a couple weeks ago and we will do it again tomorrow. Thanks to Joey Marosz for being such a great instructor. I am excited for my dad and brother to arrive so we can play a round during the wedding week!
Wedding Update #33 – The biggest news I have to report is that Sidney and I requested and received our marriage license! In South Carolina you have to visit the courthouse and formally apply for the license. After you pay $50 and fill out paperwork, you then must wait 24 hours until you can pick it up. I snagged it yesterday and this afternoon Sidney delivered it to the church!
In other news, the teachers at Sidney’s school threw her a special bridal party. She left work that day with a super nice vacuum. I also received a nice surprise in that my aunt and cousin will be making the trip to Myrtle Beach to enjoy the wedding festivities. We are just 16 days away from the big date!
I hope your Memorial Weekend gets off to a great start. Thanks for your readership and I will touch base soon. Don’t Blink.
