RG Day Three: So, Yeah

Posted by gauloises1 on May 26, 2010

Just checking out what I missed while I did things yesterday (working, drinking and buying bosom-accenting clothes for Queens, if you must know.)

David won in straight sets. However, based on the photos, his shirt did not fly up nearly enough. Must try harder, David.

Old guys winning and flashing a bit of bellyflesh. That’s the stuff.

Every so often I remember Daniela Hantuchova exists. Then I forget again.

 

Andy Roddick and Jarkko Nieminen went five sets before Roddick emerged victorious. Despite being on tour together since the year dot, this was their first ATP match. I hear a rumour that Nieminen beat Roddick like 60 63 or something during RG juniors, but I can’t be bothered to look it up right now. What am I, the fact girl? Leave me alone, I’ve got a headache.

Am I still drunk, or does this work a bit?

Hi, Gianni Mina!

Bye, Gianni Mina!

Don’t even get me started on this one.

    Did you find some clothes that will give your bosom an Argentine accent?

    • gauloises1 said

      No, but it will now say “hello, is it me you’re looking for?” in the international language of Lionel Richie.

      • irefusetotellyou said

        I have a life-size cut-out of Lionel Richie. It’s a great decorative addition to all rooms.

        He has since lost his body, but I’ve still got his head lying around somewhere:

        Maybe you would like to attach his head to your boobs?

        That literally made me laugh out loud. 🙂
