Pissed off: Why are my home theatre and winterwear posts not indexed?
This is the first one:
Home theatre setup and consultancy by expert audio video consultant in New Delhi, India: AV solutions
and the second
Buying knitwear in Ontario: Will winterwear like cardigans, pullovers and legwarmers sell online in Ontario Canada?

You know, you think you have posted something, and its indexed, and then it vanishes. How irritating.

Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa at Monaco F1 2007: barely savlaging Ferrari pride
Felipe Massa did a good job for the Ferrari team at Monaco F1 alright today - but nothing great. The other Ferrari car, of teammate Kimi Raikkonen, was in even worse shape.

Felipe Massa managed to bang in a respectable third place on the famous Monaco streets. But his top speeds were nowhere near the speeds achieved by his competitors in the silver MCLaren Mercedes F1 cars. In fact, after the first corner, Felipe never even seriously managed to hassle rookie McLaren F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, who steadily vanished into the distance hot on the tail of Fernando Alonso. But one has to admit that his was a clean race, at least.

Clean is the word to describe Kimi Raikkonen's race too - except that he only managed a single point by finishing 8th at Monaco. Considering that Kimi was starting from 16 th on the grid, that is respectable. But Kimi Raikkonen wasted a hell of a long time on the tail of cars much slower than him, and there was nothing he could do about it. Kimi Raikkonen and his engineers had relied on a one-stop strategy at Monaco, but in the end even that came to naught. Kimi probably was a little psyched by his encounter with Aramco during the second qualifying.

Another reason for both the Ferrari drivers' poor performance (relatively, of course) at Monaco Grand Prix 2007 could be their wheelbase. The longer wheelbase of the Ferraris, which had come to their aid during the Formula One races so far in 2007 probably did not help much during the twists and turns of Monaco / Monte Carlo.

That is the initial update after the 2007 Monaco Grand Prix!

Fernando Alonso is the winner at Monaco Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton second at Monaco F1 2007 race, winners and points
Quick update:

Fernando Alonso managed to match his hard-charging rookie team-mate Lewis Hamilton lap by lap, and won a much deserved win at Monaco F1 GP today. Alonso should be evry happy indeed, considering that he has been upstaged this Formula One season since the beginning, more or less, by Lewis Hamilton. Both the McLaren Mercedes F1 cars were clearly dominant to anyone else on the winding and narrow streets of Monaco.

Approaching a woman: How things change between now and then, here and there
From gulping to grinding

Those days:

You would walk up, on wobbly knees, to that sweet thing over there. The motivating powers include 1) hormones, 2) potential humiliation by friends and 3) 'love'. And then you will GULP. "Hi.. err.." and fumble and gulp, till somehow you manage to get a few words out of your throat, not making any sense and thoroughly confusing the poor girl. And then you almost run frantically back, hoping that despite the mess and drool, you have at least managed to strike the girl as cute.

I know one character: Toughie, roughie, but a romantic at heart, David. At some Church youth club moments, he started feeling the palpitations; there was a dance, there was a sexy babe, and yes, he wanted to dance with her. (This happened in Delhi, the city where the poshest looking people talk in happy Punjabi, unlike in Bombay where people abuse in Angrezi when someone thrusts their sweaty armpits in your face in a local train. Anyway, back to David) So he approached and asked her, "Nachegi Kya?"

Needless to say, the dance never happened.

Such are the perils of approaching girls, women and trying to "make friendship."

I know things are different now, and I am a dowdy fuddy duddy with the way things operate now. Once in a while, listening to some teen talk about his or her love life makes me jump out of my skin. I suppose the DPS MMS was the harbinger (what the hell does it mean?) of many changes. Many shocks to my system are on the way; and I would advise everyone to prepare for amazing revelations from their children in the days to come!

But today I came across something that is even more interesting. Any of you seen MTV Grind? I suppose you are sorta familiar with the grind, and some of you can even grind well. Anyway, it seems that a study of some 143 women somewhere near Queen's University, Kingston was conducted. And they said most men introduce themselves to the women by grinding against them, from behind. "84% of the women in the survey say this is how they have personally experienced new men introducing themselves." And "about 30% said "grinding" is an acceptable way to pick someone up."
