And not one nurse wondered why I had a rubber duckie on my chest, neither!
(late update @ 141am: Vic Odin is really, really powerful at painkilling, but he makes typing really really hard. But it goes better if I close my eyes and just type. Over at Ambient Irony, I just left a comment that'll be embarrassing in the morning.)

I'm going to do something about that. I was originally going to post something interesting and witty about today's televised practice session for the Brazilian Grand Prix, but just couldn't pull something out of my hat... there just wasn't much interesting happening!
Oh, sure, Mitchell Schumacher was looking pretty sporty when he wasn't cooking himself some Bridgestones for lunch, or sending himself spinning, but we all know this isn't Ferrari's year; he could be turning fast lap after fast lap today, and he still won't be on the podium come Sunday. Although... it's supposed to rain on Sunday. If that happens, throw everything into a cocked hat, it's anybody's race.
The McLarens were quick, Renault was fast, Sauber (the hell?) was fast... I fully expect that Kimi or Juan Pablo will win, but Alonso will clinch the Drivers Championship, probably finishing third.
As far as ANIME goes, I'm working on a post entitled "Why Anime?" It'll explain why I enjoy watching Japanese cartoons, and why it should be even MORE popular than it is already. Hopefully, I'll have it up before The Dreaded Visit to the Oral Surgeon on Monday.
Until then, enjoy Saturday's Quals; I'll be back afterwards with a rundown.

Second, OWWWWW! Never let ANYBODY tell you ducks don't have teeth. I've got two getting extracted on Monday, but one of 'em is gonna make my life hell until then.
Third, Monday was International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Yarrrrrrrr!

I've specifically tried to avoid politics or too much coverage of "negative events" here in The Pond; quite honestly, there's millions of other places out there where you can read about that, and many of them are better written. The Pond is a specialty site, dealing with Anime and Formula One... and whatever else I deem humorous enough to write about. I want it to stay someplace that you, the readers, and myself, The Duck, can come to and read about things that are fairly trivial, all things considered. The big things are everywhere, and sometimes covering the teeny-tiny things is a good way to escape, even if just for a minute or two.
All that being said, I want you to read THIS.
Why do I love this country? It's things like that. They are the living version of what I want this blog to be.
Okay. Now, will someone help me get this soapbox out of the Pond?
