Tonight I raced a guy in England. Not a guy from England. A guy in England. I was in Wisconsin, and he was in England. And we were zipping through the streets of Edinburgh (which I found out is pronounced Edinboro) in our Porsches and Ferraris.
All possible through the magic of the internet and XBOX live. Throughout the entire race, we chatted in real time over our headsets. Yes I look like a total dork when I'm talking into thin air. Yes people keep turning around because they think I'm speaking to them. No I don't care. It was AMAZINGLY cool. The Brit kept making fun of MY accent! Imagine that...a guy who can't even say aluminum! And as far as I'm concerned, a laundrette should be the term for a woman doing laundry.
We were eventually joined by a guy in Colorado. Then the three of us talked about cars, XBOX, the French, BBC TV shows (MI 5, I mean Spooks), and US/British relations.
Just doing my part for world peace.
