sunday was glorious. GLORIOUS. i mean, sure, it never got above 40 degrees, and it was raining and windy the whole day, and sure, i was outside in it from 9am to 5pm... but...
I GOT TO SEE MY GIANTS WIN AGAIN AT FEDEX FIELD :-)
we had really nice seats. great view of the field:
we got there long, long before the game actually started, though. like at 9am. tailgating is SERIOUS BUSINESS, apparently. they had four cars parked butt-to-butt, with a 10'x10' tent set up over the main area to keep us mostly dry; a grill for the huge pot of chili, and a freaking propane-fueled deep fryer that they used to make chicken, fries, catfish, and flounder in.
honest to god, home-brewed-in-someone's-backyard, moonshine.
i can't even begin to describe how awful that stuff is straight. it's like lighter fluid mixed with butane mixed with windex. however! someone took pity and made it into a mixed drink for me, which was actually not bad at all.
amd although we kept joking that by 3pm we'd no longer be speaking to each other, in the end, darlene and i managed to stay friends despite our rivalry. which, you know, was easier for me, since WE WON BWAHAHAHA :-)
