i always thought Formula 1 was the epitome of boring. who wants to sit around and watch racing cars zoom around a weirdly-shaped track for two hours, right?
after being roped into watching a race about five or six weeks ago, and subsequently watching a lot of the previous races from this year... i am that person. i want to watch racing cars zoom around a weirdly-shaped track for two hours. and then watch the post-race stuff, too. turns out F1 isn't boring at all. who'd have thought?
anyway, it's the final race of the year today (yeep!) and Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso are contesting for the championship title. (forgive me if my lingo is wrong, F1 sophisticates - i'm still new to the game.) i really want Vettel to win - he's only 25, this'll be his third title in three years if he wins, he's an excellent driver, he's German, he's funny and a little cheeky (in a funny way - not in a Lewis Hamilton "i'm an arrogant prick" way) and the like. that being said, Alonso is a fantastic driver, too, and he's a little more mature (ha! probably a LOT more mature) than Vettel, so i won't be absolutely heartbroken if he takes the championship. (i think. maybe.)
but enough blabber! it's Caturday and as such i need to provide you with some CAT PICTURES. and since the theme is F1, here y'are:
Cat Race by Mandara
this guy looks ready to rock'n'roll!
Eric the Cat in his cardboard racing car - found on the Fluffington Post (which is awesome, by the way). here's what the "article" about this photo said:
Cat Nabs Formula 1 Victory With Homemade Car
In what racing commentators are calling “the biggest upset of the year,” a cat named Eric has come out of obscurity to best his rivals in the Korean Grand Prix. Perhaps most stunning of all, he did it with a car he built himself.
“Most F1 vehicles are masterworks of engineering and precision,” says Burt Kellog, a writer for Speed Magazine who reports on Eric’s rise to stardom. “This thing is made out of cardboard. It’s not aerodynamic at all. But he really pulled ahead in the last race. It was a sight to see.”hahahaa! oh, Eric.
Dave Palmer's Racer Cat... what a boss.
finally, let's watch a cat try to catch F1 cars on a TV screen - because this is something that Gimli, my cat at home, would SO do.
aaah, so cute :) happy Caturday, everyone!
if you need me, i'll be studying like nuts for Media Histories and Law, in my room... bleh.
