write your soul down, word for word

This journal is friends only: Comment to the friends only post if you want to be added. Let me know why you think we'd get along, and I will probably add you back.

In my LJ, I talk a lot about work and whatever I'm geeking out over at the moment: If that's what you want to read, swell. If not, oh well.

Michael Waltrip is the man: If you have anything even remotely negative to say about him whatsoever, don't even consider friending me. This point is non-negotiable.

Talk nicely about the other drivers I list and about all my interests: Or else I boot you in the head.

"William Manchester has written that 'true heroism is not based on a single incident but is built on courage and commitment in the face of the unknown and potential danger over time and term of career. Heroes are those who are unwavering to their calling,' said William Manchester. So we've seen a winner today, a young hero named Michael Waltrip in his 463rd start who once said, 'No one owes me anything in this sport. I've been close, I've been competitive, so I'm proud of these things. I love driving these cars, and I want to do it for a long time to come.' The voice of a hero. And the interesting this is, these heroes are not only today, but they are for Rockingham next week and Las Vegas next week. That is the mark of a true race and a true hero."

"People said that we couldn't get sponsors, and we showed them. They said we wouldn't get winning drivers, and we showed them. The thing they said that really pissed me off was that we wouldn't win. Let's show 'em." [Michael Waltrip on the episode of Michael Waltrip Racing: A New Era that aired 1/28/07]

"Y'all have to write whatever you have to write. Your opinions are yours and you write them down on a piece of paper and share it with thousands of people. I've been criticized enough where y'all can't hurt me. You can't write anything that's going to make my day any worse. And you can't all of a sudden tell me I'm smart and great and make me feel any better. Because I didn't believe you when you said I sucked and I'm not going to believe you when you say I'm great! I'm just going to keep on being me." [Michael Waltrip, 23 April 2005]
