My little (nasty) April Fool’s prank

So I kinda pulled an april’s fool joke, something I don’t ever do because it is way too obvious on this day. And I do lkke a good prank any day. 

So Coldplay had a gig tonight and my friend was hoping for someone to help him record one song. So I told my friend I was going to see Coldplay’s concert. He was pretty happy about this.

So after a while I told him if he had checked the date. Boom! Nope I’m not going. Not heard from him since too haha. Don’t know if it counts as a prank or not but I’m taking it!

Formula One 2017 Season: Starts Today!

The 2017 Formula One season is starting today over in Melbourne, Australia! Nothing beats watching F1 cars in action (well, maybe apart from watching IndyCars too) and I can’t wait to see how the new regulations will shake up the order, if it even does that which so far looks as if it won’t. Hopefully we will get some good racing at least. And as always, I’ll say this, I wish I was in Melbourne right now. Been there twice, enjoyed it both times. Hopefully going there for a third time soon.

 

So those of you who aren’t familiar to the F1 or new to racing, here’s a little guide on who’s driving for which team. Well, the full-time drivers that is.

The big story of the season I guess will be the fight at the top. It looks like it won’t be a one-team race like we’ve seen for the past few years. Ferrari have definitely caught up with Mercedes and for once we might get that world champion vs world champion fight in Hamilton vs Vettel. That’d be a great fight to follow for the neutrals, me included as I’m not a fan of either man these days (one because of how he’s been acting lately, the other because he joined THE enemy).

 

The other thing I’m looking forward to seeing is how well Bottas does in a top car for once. He’s now got the golden opportunity in the best car on the grid, but can he keep up with Hamilton? We know he’s got the talent, now it’s his time to prove it.Surely he’ll get his first win this season and when he does, that fight will become even closer.

 

I will say I like the look of the cars. Longer rear wings, bigger rear tyres….back to the older times eh? I’m not bothered by the shark fins at all. Also we got some really good looking liveries on track. The Toro Rosso car is still my favourite but the new pink car for Force India sure comes a close second and the third favourite….an ORANGE McLaren! Yes, they’re back to the traditional orange colours. I do like the slightly updated Sauber look too. Can’t wait for the race in Melbourne to start in almost an hour’s time!

10,000 Days

I got bored doing my accounting work so I started….well….counting. But for other less important things. For some reason I got curious as to how old I was days wise. Turns out today is my 9,523rd day in this wonderful world of ours. And doing more counting, because I’m really bored, I’ll be 10,000 days old on June 17th 2017. Oh dang, if only it was another month, that would have been perfect with all 7’s (it’s my favourite number after all).

So to anyone who is/almost 27, we’re reaching that 10,000 day mark soon.

And yes, I am bored out of my damn mind!
