It'* on right now...pretty interesting (started with a sweet GTO that was doing 11'* in the quarter mile. ). Thought you might want to know.

Well, if you wouldn't go to bed so early...

It was pretty good (I love stuff like that). They went into the history of drag racing and some of the technicals of the cars...pretty cool stuff.

This is the History Channel though...they'll show it again (probably today knowing them ).

I was tuckered last night...funny thing is I was up for another hour still after that :P



The History Channel and TLC are great, in case you miss something, chance are it will be on again soon after that. Gotta love specialty channels

I understand...12:30 is pretty much it for me anyway. I did stay up to watch the show, but I fell asleep in the last 10 minutes or so.

And now I'm sleepy this morning... :goodmorning:

Wow! That'* quite a busy night you had...glad I could make it just a little harder (being difficult is my specialty...just ask my husband! :P ). Maybe I'll visit you (PM) after work tonight and keep you from your work. I'll save the Irish coffee for then . Actually, forget the coffee part; I'll just have a Buttery Nipple (despite the stupid name, those are sooooooo good!).
