Bonjour fellas

Am off to Paris for some more loafing around. Monalisa's waiting with a smile on the face though the Eiffel will surely grumble when my heavy bodied self tries to clamber on top of it. Though, I have made a small chit and crammed important french words but I have kept a pen and paper handy(to draw what I mean and explain, in case they dont understand !). The all fashion-encompassing city, though might provide the best names in fashion, I am sure to not look at them lest I empty my pockets. And the if they talk too much in french, I have well rehearsed the first lesson 'Je ne comprend pas'...I don't understand.
I promise some travelogues and pics in a week or so.

Au Revoir,

Grand Prix to commence

The formula one season is all set to start in a fortnight. I reckon we will be seeing the F1-God in the red Ferrari for the last time this season. Though Renault, the favourite, still seems to be leading the pack during practices, the aggressive Raikonnen on McLaren is not the one to bow down. The flickering flame, but flame all the same, Schumi is still F1-god for us worshippers of F1. Our desi bro, Narain, is no more in the race. I hope the next Indian takes the helm of one of the F1 cars soon and gets India on the asphalt again running for the chequered flag.

This year the rules have been modified yet again. The safety regulations are stricter and thus, the cars if not slower, will have speeds as last seasons. The V10 engines have been replaced by V8s. Though, the cars not able to procure V8s will be allowed to race with last year’s V10s (restricted V10s of course). On the same lines, its now allowed to change tyres during the race unlike last year. New teams, new drivers, merged & acquired teams etc, should give us another season of the exciting fastest sport on earth, played on fastest land machines. A new team Super Aguri, from Japan, are waiting to display their skills on the circuits. Toro Rosso (Minardi purchased by Red bull) and MF1 (Jordan renamed), might pull off a victory if nomenclature change helps them in any way. BMW has paired with Sauber and ditched Williams. And of course, the old professionals Renault, Feraari, McLaren, Honda, Toyota etc. are revving to challenge the opponents and trample the newcomers.

Lets wait and watch and pray for Schumacher to get the title again.

Valentines for bachelors!!!

Just for fun...nothing serious!! When single guys look for rich girl valentines, their heart recites -

I ask, whats this Val day?
Some love stuff, they all say.
But I ask, if I may,
Shouldn't singles also have their say?

I shall let you know this day,
Some single pals and my dismay.
Do we have a God to pray,
To put some chicks on our tray.

Unlike donkeys, we don't bray,
like horses, we don't pull some dray.
Still gal luck isn't comin our way,
while we wait with no work or play.

There are conditions, let us say,
Before you find us, a hopeful ray,
The chick should not make us pay,
while we don't mind goin' the dutch way.

The lady so rich, with gold she'll pay,
own a huge bungalow by Whitley bay.
Spend dough on us, without saying nay,
not whine nor wince if we catch another prey.

If this sounds all fun and play,
Don't you mock us singles, I pray.
For there will be next valentines day.
When in our lap, shall fall a prey.

Dedicated to all the bachelors (including Vark and myself) out there without valentines!!
