Excited to the extremes!

Woke up this morning pretty excited! There was a F1 Road parade happening here in Melbourne in wake of the Australian Grad Prix starting this week. For the first time the F1 cars were coming to the roads in the city touring around streets!!

And I am not working! Yaayyy!!
It meant that I could bunk a class at uni and run and see the cars.... and no railings between me and the cars to spoil the view. Just some road blocks... but not high enough to marr my enthusiasm. I am all smiles.! :D

I tried to take a few pictures... but you know how fast these cars are..and although my position was good, near a turn, so had a better coverage..but still. I even tried to make a few videos, and I think all they have is the LOUD LOUD *sweet* noise!!! :)
(Might upload one if its any good.)

While waiting for the cars to go past... I started chatting with this Oz chick next to me. When the first car whizzzzed past and everyone shrieked and yelled and clapped, she said,
"Man, what have we girls turned into? We are getting our kicks by looking at cars?!" :D

------------------------------------------

Every one must have noticed, especially the dear Doddle-buddies that our beloved Doodle has DIED! And we have been orphaned...forced to look for new Chat-boards.

I am trialing the flooble-booble... whatever it is. Lets see if its any good. I wasted an hour or so on google and haven't found much choices.

Had dumped Taggie for Doodle and now Doodle has dumped me!
Very VERY frustrating indeed!!

When did we became soooo dependent on Doodle?
Why isn't there any board out there that comes close to Doodle's comparison?!

------------------------------------------

Don't feel like going home................
*Strange!*

Grrrr... I was so happy when I managed to install doodle-board just a day back! I was jubilant to have made first ever change to my blog after instituting it. I was overjoyed when an HTMLically challenged like me managed to tinker the template without spoiling it. But alas! May doodle-board's soul rest is peace. Amen! :D

Let me know any other tag board that you hate. I'll subscribe to it and it'll dies in a day's time for sure. :p

I have been to the US Grand Prix for the last 2 yrs...thot it'll be boring this time and i might give it a skip. But reading ur post made me change my mind. Also now my office is right opposite the race track and I live just minutes away from it! Now I can hardly wait for the race! :-):-)

Puneet said...

Colors said...

Though not great pics..they're more on the crowd etc..and not on cars. Will try to get better pics this yr

Nupur said...

@Puneet: There you go! :)
Proven again that chicks also have a need for speed!!! *hahaha*

And Puneet abt the chatbox, I'm guessing you mean that you want to host ur chatbox urself and not use it as a webservice from another server? how will you store all the comments etc..where?
Why would you want to reinvent the wheel...when its already been done by someone??!!
*confused!*

Nupur said...

@Colors: :D Hey... atleast you got something yaar.. coz mine are worse. Not even worth posting! ;)

Look forward to ur pics..!!
