I am going to buy a Ferrari sweater with my tips. Because I am a huge nerd. So if anyone wants to vote on a style, I'll post them and you can comment. For now just enjoy this adorable cat!
For the record, I am ~$25 in bills (and whatever change is rolling around Mark's car) closer to getting my goal. Eee!

"I absolutely love driving and I love the sport...another reason I wanted to stay in F1 is because Force India looks like a very promising programme. I want to be part of that from the start and I want to grow up with this team."Aren't you supposed to be grown up by 39? I thought so.

Some people think this is a self-portrait. But it's like everything Caravaggio does. Everyone always thinks that. That's because when he was poor, living in Rome, and trying to start selling work and was so broke he couldn't afford models, so he just painted himself in a mirror. Pretty darn clever.
So here's Caravaggio. I think he kind of looks like Charles Manson. See here:
She is not at all freaked out by all the drivers who chill in my kitchen. She actually liked it!! I think it made her feel comfortable since her dad and brother are really into fixing up '70s muscle cars. I think they also watch Nascar. I think she might even like Nascar. She actually said to me, "Yeah, I looked in your cupboard and saw those [cups] and was like, 'Cool!'" Anyone who can embrace Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa is welcome to live in my apartment.

The other night I think I asserted that Jean Todt looks like a manatee. I think that he may look less like a manatee than I remembered.

Hm, I'm not impressed. Also not impressed with this:
Q. What do you think of the car?
NH: Obviously from driving you cannot really say anything. I had last year's seat in the car. I did only three laps, but I was low on fuel so that was why maybe it felt so good.
Q. How do you feel inside the cockpit?I guess I just wanted a bit more, I don't know, excitement? Maybe that's why I find Felipe Massa so endearing, because he is always so excited. And when he's not excited he is saying something that sounds kind of smart. (I do not really have good reasons for liking drivers. I am very arbitrary. Example: I like Jeff Gordon better than Jimmie Johnson because Jeff Gordon has an adorable baby daughter and Jimmie Johnson's hair looks like plastic.) Really, though, I want to see Massa step up a little bit more. I know he is fast (he always has great times) but he's going to need to push harder this year to get past Raikkonen for #1 driver. I know he can do it!
Robert Kubica: Well, inside is pretty similar as it was last year even though we have had a seat fitting. I am still using last year's seat so there was no big improvement, but I get a bit more space for my legs so it is a bit better, a bit more comfortable for myself.
McLaren: I really don't have much to say, since I haven't gotten through the news. All I know is that new McLaren Heikki Kovalainen kind of scares me. I don't know why. There's not much to say about Toyota, either except that I'm excited to see Timo Glock drive. He has spiky hair and funny name, so I like will probably like him regardless. Alonso drove well for Renault on Day 2. Still think he's a total douche. Mark and I were browsing Pitpass at Border's the other day and I was pleased to read that someone (don't remember who) agrees with me that Alonso may have already run his F1 career right into the ground. I just don't feel incredibly hopeful that he can get out of this one. I seriously think that he made such a bad name for himself last season at McLaren that if he's the least bit unreasonable or under-performs in 2008 he's going to be out. Probably not. Chances are there will always be a team that will want him because he can actually drive.
I was talking about Fisichella the other day and how I didn't think he was really all that good anymore. Twelfth at Jerez on Day 2 out of thirteen. I know it's the first time out with the car, but if he keeps up like this I might becoming increasingly unforgiving.
