Spending 10 seconds chatting to Malcolm O’Kelly about Beck is more fulfilling than hours spent talking to Kenny Cunningham about, er, I can’t really remember

29 August 2006

Let me start off with a preamble. I’m not a huge fan of the colour pink. In small doses I can take it, and even like it. And certain shades are actually nice, especially when combined with other colours.

Was surfing from station to station over the weekend[1] with nothing to watch. So I took a glance at the telly pages, and for once actually looked at the listing for Setanta Sport. Normally I don’t bother, although I do watch it from time to time. And what was on? Why French rugby. So I figured, only half an hour left, may as well take a look.

Certain people may now have linked my preamble with the subject of rugby, and French teams. But, just in case anyone needs a visual link I give you this:

Is that nasty, or is that nasty. And there was me thinking that French peoples are supposed to be all fashion conscious. And Parisians even more so.

But that, well at the risk of boring you all by repeating myself, it is just plain nasty. And in that pic you don’t even get the full effect of this wonderful strip, which I presume is their away gear? Cause I remember Stade Francais as being in blue.


  1. yes yes, now it is Tues but I’m still in the process of moving the library. One book at a time…

    Surely being fashion conscious implies dressing in awful-looking stuff?

    Nice gravatar Mal :)

    And while fashion often does equal yuck, in this case the yuck factor has been taken too far.

    I like your Basil Brush Mal. BOOM BOOM! :-)

    See Fency-Wency, THAT'S why we're bestest friends -you don't really like pink and I never have to endure the sight of you wearing it. Of course, pink with your flaming locks would be horrifying, so even if you liked it, with your taste, you'd never wear it. But if you supported that team you'd be in trouble.

    Pink should be reserved for smoked salmon and internal organs.

    I greatly approve of having River instead of Jane (Jayne?), Fence. She is such an uber-babe. Such knife-edge loveliness. Beauty like a tightened bow. OK, I'm going to stop perving now.

  6. NineMoons says:

    A kind that is not natural in an age like this.

    I could look at River all day.

    Just like Zhang Ziyi. Sigh.

  7. NineMoons says:

    But I pretty much want to do a lot more than watch Jayne/Adam. Ahem. Naughty thoughts.

    Whoa Nelly!!!! Those are some gaudy outfits!

  9. Mal says:

    Ha, Nines, I had no idea I would be lunching off smoked salmon with you today when I mentioned it there! How weird. Obviously it was in my mind for some reason. I don't even want to speculate. There are murky depths in my psyche.

    Yes, it shocks me everytime. I don't know. But then, I wouldn't have picked Stade Français' owner or whatever his title is for his sartorial or otherwise tastes.
    (I'm not sure I understand the previous sentence.)

    I'm a huge fan of pink, but those uniforms make me nauseous.

  12. LiVEwiRe says:

    Oh. That is just wrong!

  13. Fence says:

    Consensus! We should now inform the team, I'm sure they'll change as soon as possible :)

  14. Ouch! Those are some nasteh uniforms!
