All I Really Need to Know in Life I Learned From Lindsey Murray.

Lesson 1: Do not wear a skirt when riding a bull, mechanical or otherwise.



Lesson 2: If the phone rings while you are riding a bull, and it's for the bull, you should probably let him talk.



Lesson 3: Everything on "Fear Factor" has the Fear Factor logo on it. Including the trash cans.



Lesson 4: When taking a picture of "Fear Factor" stunt being performed, the helicopter will turn out looking like a flea.



Lesson 5: Mickey Mouse, Cat Woman, Homer Simpson, Darth Vader, Spiderman, and Wonderwoman all DO exist and work on Hollywood Blvd.



Lesson 6: Kids in Ventura use nude car washes to raise money for school activities.



Lesson 7: Mustangs have tiny, cramped interiors that get uncomfortable quickly, aren't really that fast, and aren't worth the extra $5 a day for rental unless you get the GT, which we didn't. Also, the radio gets louder when you accelerate. Also, a suede jacket paired with a backpack is not a flattering look for anybody.



Lesson 8: Adam Sandlar has huge feet but small hands.



Lesson 9: Wine is good.



Lesson 10: Retarded children need thrift stores, too.



Lesson 11: Lindsey (yes, that's Lindsey of iMod fame) is the only person I know who can pull off shorts, a blazer, and high heels and look absolutely fabulous. Then again, girl can rock a Puma sweatband and white-and-red-striped knee socks and look fabulous, so I shouldn't be surprised. I unfortunately was too busy drinking $10 Long Island iced teas to take a picture of her fabulousness. Also, $10 Long Island iced teas will knock you on your ass.



Lesson 12: Lindsey can get you into The Comedy Store, which normally has a $15 cover, for free simply by saying, "It's me, Lindsey!" to the guy at the counter. I also have no pictures of this, because I was too busy thinking about what my next drink would be. Also, Jay London, of "Last Comic Standing" "fame"? Makes you want to kill youself.



Lesson 13: There is no lesson 13.

(And no, I don't have permission from these people to post their pictures - I'm running on the off chance that not everyone in the entire world reads this. Although I think we all know they should.)

Lesson #9 is the truest lesson one could learn

looks like you had fun! I take it the bull won?

lindsey said...

YES!!!!!!! I LOVE IT! So glad you had fun and made it back safe! I must say that even though I look a little too serious in that picture, don't be fooled. That, my friends, is TRUE FOCUS. The type of focus that breeds champions.
Indesribably honored by the reppin' at AMG!

lindsey said...

Also, slightly disappointed that scary bride lady was neither on the bull or in those pictures. :(

That's pretty fantastic. Lindsey, it sounds like you have the hookup!

The guy on the bull with the cell phone made me laugh the hardest...

Good times!

Nice to see Linds (yeah, typing the last few letters is just too much of a hassle)alive and drinking, what with having thought she died, then having her say she didn't and then thinking she died again (sic) what with the lack of posts and all.

That makes sense.

Mon said...

glad that Lindsey is still doing well! looks like you had a kick ass time too! cheers!

Looks like you had fun!

The Other Half said...

next time just take the skirt off..i'm sure everybody would have appreciated that much more anyway

Walking Wounded said...

Looks like an awesome trip! Too bad about the dogged Mustang. The GT does have more pepp. I'm surprised they let you ride the bull with shoes on, usually they make you take 'em off this way they don't go airborne if you're flopped off the bull! LOL

Peace

Captain Bee said...

The picture with the dude cellphoning the bull is KEY!

That shit is fucking hilarious.

Glad to see you had a good trip.

The Brunette said...

Sounds like you had a great time! I've lived here my whole life, and you just did more here than I ever had. Sad? I think so ;-)

sue said...

Very fun... and thank you for sharing!!

Retarded Kid Ruben said...

That is so where I buy all my clothes, drool guards and back braces!

Manda said...

LOL. Hope you had a chance between $10 long islands and bull riding to check out the beach! California has some amazing beaches. Sounds like a fun trip!

It looks like a little too much fun!! Wish we were there! --anonymous midwest aunts

Midwest Girl: Tommy Lee has a Star on the Walk of Fame? That's it. I'm raising money for yours!!!

Rob said...

that bull looks familiar.. were you at union cattle in hermosa beach by chance? i saw a girl who did not obey rule #1 there over the summer, and when she got tossed (well, even while she was on), she gave quite an eyeful.

That is so true about the retarded children, peace be upon them.

NowhereGirl said...

I drank a beer with Adam Sandler in college. Didn't care about the size of his hands, as long as I felt them on ME?! ;-) Ha ha.

AMG AND Imod?

The mind boggles.
This is better than Pinky and the brain.
Can anything stand in their way?
