Top B – End of an Era (punjabi man and monkeys, sadly no Babycakes)

The last ever Top B – amazing but SO EMOTIONAL! Though you know it's coming – the end of university that is – it's still a shock to be partying away then realise that this time next week it's job–hunting and tax–paying all the way. And just where the fuck were all the taxis at 1am??

Some amazin' tunes in the Top 40 – Sum 41, never thought I'd see the day you could have a decent mosh at Top B! DJ James having a bop to Basement Jaxx was another total highlight …. what a mover! A few tips from Punjabi man and it'll be Strictly Dance Fever for you my son.

Sadly we failed in our mission to get Babycakes played. It's a sucky song we know, but after they refused to play it a few months back it just became a sort of mission. Tarbit, Carter if you're reading – I wouldn't put it past Charlotte to stalk you to the ends of the earth brandishing a copy.

Brief Thought On Silverstone

So Michael 'bends the rules' and acts 'unsportingly' and everyone is up in arms. Then post–safety car Alonso backs up the field in the most outrageous manner and – lo! – nobody bats an eyelid! Martin clearly thought it was a bit out of order but that's about all I heard of it. The insufferable James Allen was actually praising such a move as being masterful!

Maclaren gave dad and his boss Gold roaming passes to Silverstone this weekend, so happily I was able to go along to the testing today. I look like a radiation victim from the sunburn but it was definitely worth it. 19th Jense – surely not from a racing driver of your obvious talent? I notice it was the fault of a random weigh–in that meant he ran out of time for a second flying lap. All the same, everyone else has an equal chance of being weighed. Perhaps don't be so sure of your position as to leave it too late, JB! Good to see Kimi up there, even if he basically said the car was abit cruddy afterwards. Hopefully the car can stay in one piece tomorrow. Fingers need to be crossed for JPM tho – that engine sounding a bit rough through Copse.

Still haven't got used to supporting Maclaren after all those years as a Cosworth gal. It's nice to be supporting something thats at the right end of the grid – at least at the start of the race. Poor old Cosworth. Keith must be turning in his grave.

Jenson Button

Am I the only person whose read some of the recent Button comments? That would explain why there aren't more people clutching their sides. You've got to laugh at a man whose started more than 100 GPs and not won a thing and still believes he's better than MS, Alonso and Kimi. wtf?? Apparently Jense thinks the only thing holding him back are the inferior cars he's given to drive. Apparently nobody could win in these. Listen Jense, perhaps if you were anything more than astonishingly and outrageously average then you'd have a better drive. This man should be publicly humiliated for such misplaced confidence and pretentious drivel.

So deluded it's got to be medical.

I always enjoy Monaco, its the one race where I can tolerate ignorant celebrities turning up and parading their complete disinterest in the motor–racing world. And some really great driving on display, especially from poor Kimi. This guy has got to be the unluckiest person in the world ever, how many times has he seen that engine go boom in the past few seasons? But thats what you get for letting Mario depart and the Germans take over. Also much sympathy to Mark Webber, the frustration must have been all consuming – even without the retirement, where the hell were those blue flags?? And that engine. It saddens me to see the way Cosworth has gone in the last decade, which is mainly backwards. I am only suprised they are still in operation, having witnessed some of the tremendous mismanagement at the place firsthand.

And then there's Michael Schumacher. I don't know why he occassionally does these things that make him so unpopular. They're so unnecessary. Lets not forget, the guy is a truly great driver. He probably got what he deserved starting from the pitlane, but still managed to haul ass to be ahead of his teammate at the end. And as for the holier–than–thou crap from the rest of the pitlane, like any of them are above dubious tactics on occassion. Who are they trying to kid!

Most annoyingly of all is the TV coverage, maybe because I missed so much of the recent seasons due to work commitments I've got rose–tinted glasses or something but it definitely seems to be getting worse. Here we are, 2 laps from the end with Schumacher persuing Reubens hell–for–leather to the finish line and we're treated instead to Alonso cruising home and Flav in the pit lane! Martin and James were bigging up this big fight to the finish then had to totally abandon the commentary and make some pointless comments about AF's championship lead. The advert breaks are also too numerous and irksome. You can imagine the uproar from football fans if even the most insignificant game was interupted at 10–15 minute intervals. Come on Bernie, sort it out.

It's final finals time!

Just and hour and a half of Bac Path stands between me and permanent freedom from exam tyranny. I approach this exam with 100% confidence, I personal worst is defiantely on the cards (as you can imagine, it will take some doing to outdo Yr2 cell biology but I have a good – or should that be bad? – feeling about this one). Basically, as long as they ask a question on pneumococcal adhesion or Mycobacteria I should muster a pass. Anything else would equal total disaster.

To Mr Cruise

Is there anywhere someone more annoying than that little twit Tom Cruise? I see he has continued his crusade against the use of antidepressants in the name of his daft religion* Does the man have any idea what clinical depression does to people? Of course not, or he wouldnít be supporting such preachy and ignorant arsegabble. Iíve seen. Iíve watched. Nobody makes the decision to take lots of psychoactive medication lightly. I wonder, would Mr Cruise also condemn the treatment of Parkinsons, Alzeihmers, chronic liver disease or in fact any other disease with drugs that can help someone in pain and ease the minds of their families? I suspect not.

Some people recover from depression on their own. Some people donít. These people die, Mr Cruise, all at once or slowly, a little bit more every day. OK fine, you want to drown to death in your own smug-gittiness thatís no concern of mine. How about leaving decisions of medical treatment to people with a real qualification?

Oh and as for naming your son 'Hubbard' – wtf? As good a reason as any to break off the engagement.

~ which is an affront to all proper, respectable religions.

Folic acid in bread.

I see the Food Standards Agency wants compulsory addition of folic acid to bread, in order to prevent spina bifida in pregnant women. If women are too stupid or poor to supplement their own diet, they shouldn't be encouraged to breed frankly. Is there no end to this governments insistent nannying?
