A Dream Come True

Oh yes everyone, a dream has come true for your truly. Let me give you a little back story.

Biker was at his former home last week, and he called me (of course), but this call was special. He called me to let me know that the WIENERMOBILE had been in no-where ville. I was standing in Braums with Mrs. WP at the time. I said, "WHAT???" He said that the Wienermobile has been in no-where ville at a tiny grocery store that they have there, and it was on the front page of the wasted paper gazette. You all know what kind of newspaper I am talking about. It is like every small town paper...talks about nothing...nothing important happened...high school football news....nothing...and some trees got killed.

So, I was like OMG, I need to call Mom Gator! So we got off the phone and I called my MG. The lovely fellow working the icecream counter at Braums informed us that the Wienermobile would be in the TX panhandle for 3 weeks. Now, how the Braums gentleman knew about the Wienermobile I have no idea.

MG, was of course ecstatic, cause it has been a life long dream of my MG's to see the Wienermobile.
*side notes* I saw the Wienermobile haulin wiener ass down I-40 about 2 days prior to this story. Biker and I tried to catch it, but alas...the wienermobile was too fast for us.

So, MG goes online to find the Wiener hotline...oh yes...there is a wiener hotline. They couldn't tell her a thing. Then she called the Big City Chamber of Commerce...they knew nothing either. I called a country radio station in town and they gave me all the wiener information I could use! Yep, the radio station ladies and gentleman...the radio station. Seems like the Braums guy knew what he was talking about.

So, the Wienermobile was going to be at United (two different locations) on Saturday. Of course, we went. We waited, and waited, and waited, for the Wienermobile to arrive for its last Wiener appearance for Saturday. And waited, and waited, and waited. Finally we went to the first United to see if the Wienermobile was just running late because of all the weiner fans that came out to see it.

Well, it wasn't at the first location, so we drove BACK across town to see if it had arrived. AND IT HAD!!! OMG, it was soo cool. The Wienermobile operators were super nice. They gave us coupons for...Oscar Myer wieners of course! They have these fiberglass hotdogs that are about 2 feet long, and a foot tall, and you "dress" them with your favorite magnet toppings and get your picture taken with the wienermobile for free.

It was so amazing, we had the best time! IDK is MG has downloaded our pics yet, but here are some Wienermobile picture to tide you over until I get copies of the others.



This is the super cool Wienermobile guy. He asked me to write down our blog addy's cause it would be considered media for them. Oh man, can you believe it someone other than my friends might be reading this!

This was the line for the Wienermobile pictures. I figure it wasn't too bad of a line considereing there was NO publicity about the Wienermobile coming to town.


This is the dash board of the Wienermobile. Seriously, the dashboard is giant hotdogs. How cool is that?!?!

This is their license plate. Again, how cool is this?!?! Oh yeah, I know you are all jealous as hell. Its ok, I will try to do a post before hand next time I found out that the Wienermobile is coming to town.

Me and Katie Holmes

I know the title is odd, but trust me you will understand at the end.

So we went to Vegas this past week. It was wonderful, we had a fantastic time. We went to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Exhibit at the Mirage.


It was WAY cool. While we were there, we went underground and you can see inside the tanks where they work with the dolphins, it must be the most awesome job ever! I swear!



We went to the Winn, which is much to expensive for us. But they has these beautiful statues of butterflys, so Biker took my picture.

We gambeled a little bit, mostly lost money. That's how it goes in Vegas. Apparently, Vegas wasn't built on winners. Who knew??? Lol.

I finally got to watch the Pirate show. This makes my third time to Vegas, and I have never seen the pirate show. Its called the Sirens At TI. It was really cool!!!

The next night we went to see Crazy Girls. The tickets were free with our room. I now see why. It is a topless review, which ok whatever. It is also, Vegas' longest running topless review, THAT I DO NOT SEE WHY!!!! The best part of it was the magician at intermission. I kid you not. Biker got up to go to the bathroom during the actual show. It was that great.

That afternoon Biker has me call The Paris to see what time the Eiffel tower closed. They told me that is closes at 12:30am. Which is 2:30am in Texas. After the terrible show, we got on the bus, which is the best money I have ever spent in Vegas, and was off to the Eiffel Tower. I also had a coupon, buy one ticket, get one free. Hey its like $12 a person to go up there, it was worth my coupon. So anyways, we are on the bus with the most awful bus driver in the world. He must hate his job, cause he pretty much told us that. It took forever to get to the Eiffel Tower, and Biker was just so anxious. He kept saying, can't he hurry up, we aren't going to make it. Please note, when Biker stated saying these things we has been on the bus approximately 10 minutes.

So we finally get to The Paris, we go buy our tickets, and the very nice lady says that yes the last tickets will be sold at 12:30 am. Oh, ok cool. And that we had an hour wait time. Fabulous! Anyways, we finally get up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. It was us and every Asian tourist in Vegas. And they all tried to put coins into the distance viewer thingys that had big signs on them that said "OUT OF ORDER". Those things should be called Quarter Eaters. Cause it took all their money, but gave them nothing in return.

Also, I would like for you to all note that it is approximately 900 million degree in Las Vegas in August. And we are 21 stories above the ground. It was HOT! And we stood up there forever. Then we would go look at the other side. We would stand there for a while, then we would go look at the other side. We would stand there for a while, AND then we would go look at the other side. This went on for 1 1/2 hours. At one point Biker's shoe came untied. Now, we have been together for a long time. I think nothing of this, so I tell him, put your foot up here and I will tie it. So he did, and I tied it.

Finally people started to clear off, and it was hot, and we had seen ever sight that you could possibly see from the Eiffel Tower in Las Vages. So, Biker turns to me and says "Baby Gator, I have a surprise for you." I said, "Ok". Then he got down on one knee and said, "Baby Gator, will you marry me?" I said "OMG, yes." Then we cried, he says he didn't cry, but he did. Don't tell him I said that. So there was only like 6 tourist, us and two employees left on the top, so they took our picture and told us congratulations, and we all went down to the casino. Where I got outside and promptly called my Mom Gator.


Also, I think the girl that took the picture was drunk, cause she took about three but they all had her finger it, so I finally just said, no that's good I will just crop your finger out of my pictures.

Biker kept saying, don't call Mom Gator it is 3:30 am Texas time, she didn't care. She was so happy too!!! Biker is loved by my family, and that is so important to me. Biker know this too, and he even went and talked to my Dad (granddad) to ask permission to marry me. My Dad told Biker that he already considers him family and that he would be proud to have me marry Biker.

So there you have it, I am like Katie Holmes, cause we both got engaged on the Eiffel Tower. There maybe a slight geographical difference, but the fact remains, they are both Eiffel Towers, and we are engaged!
