Yes, yes she is. Which Kevin Kline’s still holding on to her for dear life, even after 34 years of marriage. 😉

Dang it, I’ve always thought Goodwood was cool because cars (duh) but now I’m wondering what the hell my goth ass would wear if I got to go? I guess I can take attendance off my list of dream car events, they wouldn’t let me in the door

Surely there’s got to be “this stuff, but black.”

Just go full on 50’s moto. All black and leather. Pretty sure James Dean was as goth as they came in his time.

Poor Dalek. Who would be so cruel as to force an extremely xenophobic mutant to work in an airport
cleaning up after miserable humans?!
(Probably other Daleks)

The way JT chases that little guy around the airport like an intrigued toddler gives me an idea though…

Maybe get a remote control car with fascinating tail lights, attach it to Jason via a harness and lead him around or out of the way to a corner somewhere when he gets too excited.

Adrian, Take The Joystick.

Get a 1/10 scale crawler. Or a lowrider. Those have the option of fully functional lighting systems. Turn signals, brake lights, rock lights, light bars, you name it. They go slow enough to keep up with and the crawler can get over a lot of obstacles.

Taillight articles and finding out the smallest car to climb the hill? Sure!

It’s rumored they both like prawns. Especially on ice in a wheelbarrow. Get a self propelled remote control one and keep it stocked. They’ll follow right along.

I like that Goodwood requires period costumes. I’m still a little concerned about what our ambassadors will end up wearing, but AFAICT the people who attend GFS generally have a sense of fun.

My Halloween outfit is Rocker-ish: black leather (of course) motorcycle riding jacket, jeans, black boots, Ace Cafe t-shirt, and a half-helmet with retro goggles. If I ever make it to Goodwood, that will be my attire. 🙂

The British have a long litany of eccentricities. Jason will fit right in.

You have to be posh/rich to be excentric. Poor people are just mad.

That probably counts. All Americans are a bit mad anyway.
(ETA, the notification bell makes a little ding noise!)

A non-member stumbles into the members only area. Looks around, shrugs, and reads Tales from the Slack.

Sufficiently amused, he wonders if all members only content is this entertaining?

tail lights will work on Torch David, old rovers and feral kittens?

Someone better give Torch a heads up on the knife laws over there, I don’t think bringing his saw will have customs too happy.

Looking at Adrians shoes, those tips seem to be made to kick some ass, so maybe he will keep everyone in line.

Good luck, looking forward to the reports from the field.

We’re already post-brexit. I mean, how much worse can it be?

It’s never so bad it can’t be worse.

We still have tea and free healthcare to lose.

I’m just gonna say it…

Is there a weird filter or something being used in that pic of Adrian and your daughter? There’s no way his head is that big.

Is he, like, leaning waaaaaaay forward and the perspective is all skewed?

Adrian is “still in Fance”? I hope that’s a Britishism for waltzing about in a black wiggle dress.

After seeing that photo of him with your daughter, I desperately want to hear Adrian sing a rendition of “Christmas is all around us” from Love Actually.

Nope, I was in France having just bombed back across from Italy in the Ferrari for a visit to the Italian GP. Landed back at Dover Friday morning just as this motley bunch of tea throwers was landing at Heathrow.

I was just making a snarky comment about a minor typo, mostly to amuse myself (Mission Accomplished!) Glad you’ll be able to join the Gang at Goodwood. Looking forward to the stories and photos from that and from your trip to Italy.

Can confirm there was an Autopian version of Smoky and the Bandit. Me and Jason doing a late night beer run in the Ferrari, and getting lost on the way back from the village shop.
