Eff One

The weekend has been quite a pleasant one, even though most of my own work is still remains unfinished, the urgent things that were lined up did get done and I am feeling quite pleased about that. As a result of Sunday's developments, I missed the Sunday morning Formula One race and had to catch the re-run in the night and what a race it was! I for one can't wait for the 2006 season to start off and it is a real pity that the best years of Schumie's career did not coincide with the rise of the sport's two new stars - Kimi Räikkönen and Fernando Alonso.

One of these days somebody should thwap the Star Sports commentator Steve Slater real hard on his head. Even Chris Goodwin, the other commentator, who is actually a McLaren employee, does not let his bias affect the way his does his commentary that much. Moreover, Steve can hardly suppress his snicker when has to spout some market dynamics driven faux excitement when mentioning our ever-ready-to-fail-beacon-of-speed Narain Karthikeyan. Not that our lad is doing anything great on the tracks, but hey Jenson Button, in a much better car, at this point in time has only 32 points, no snickers for him though.

In other racy news, I see that eM's been talking about sex. Now I am impatiently waiting for the mainstream Indian media to pick up the 'India Shagging' theme once again and splash it all over the place screaming: "holy hell, bloggers have sex too!" I can't wonder how in the world did the concept of Indians being sexless ever come to be? We have always been a really horny lot and have always been humping, under the covers and behind the curtains, through the ages. It is just like the drug theme where the media constantly expresses shock and awe that Delhi is a druggie den. Ignorance, even feigned, is quite a high, I guess.
