One is 7'3" tall and looks like a bit of a bogan so giving him a miss (seriously...I measured it..221cm - that's taller than my door frame!). The other is 5'11" and seems very nice. Might be too nice though. He actually keeps telling me he's nice so that's a worry. I don't mind 'nice' but I need some bad underneath..ya know?
I'm outta here.

So first there was 'The Fast and the Furious'....then there was '2Fast and 2 Furious'...
Cars are a YAWN to me. No intention of watching this one, 'til I saw the Manflesh that will be exuding from my DVD player. Putting it on my 'must see' list now.
Thanks Vin...thanks Paul.
Fast, furious...and wet.

*****WARNING - RANT ALERT*****
Now, the majority of guys under 40 won't even consider a woman over 40..even if she's got a really cute, cheeky photo and amusing bio. I know I'm sounding like a superficial cow but sex and sensuality are a big part of who I am. I NEED to be really attracted to someone physically. That's not to say that other things don't matter. I need mental stimulation just as much. If you're hot and a dumbass you won't last long around me. I don't care about material crap. I'm the one that usually ends up with the starving artist type or musician...I just need a very BIG spark to start with or I'm just not interested. Internet dating is not my first choice of how to meet someone, but since I met my husband through a friend at the pub 1990, I've not met anyone else, any other way. Everyone bags internet dating but seriously....how they hell else am I going to meet someone?? I don't get chatted up at the pub. I haven't met anyone at work or at uni. Seriously - HOW??? Fuckit. I'm sick as a dog and got a house inspection tomorrow and all I'm doing is checking email to see which creepy guy is undressing me with his eyes now. Brrrrrr. Yes, yes I know. I should just go about my normal little life and Mr Fuckingawesomely Wonderful will just leap out and whisk me away to domestic bliss. Pfft!

Yawn...morning. Still recovering from my late night Friday after going out with a bunch of friends for mine and Little Lulu's birthdays. First on the agenda was Ellington's Jazz Club. Not quite what we were expecting but lots of fun nevertheless, mostly due to the great company. As I mentioned the other day, I'm not into jazz but the show was a guy doing lots of 'crooner' type songs, ya know, Frank Sinatra, Deano...that sorta stuff and I couldn't help but groove out a little (the more vodka...the more groovin'). My girlfriends and I spent the evening trying to decide which member of the band was the cutest (the consensus was the double bass player who we named 'Fingers', with the trumpet player coming in a close second). The drummer was...interesting. Lara Croft pointed out that he did indeed bear a striking resemblance to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. We spent the rest of the night trying to figure out if he was undressing us with his eyes or just going cross-eyed trying to read the music. I caught up with some friends who I hadn't seen for a couple of months and was thrilled when they commented on how 'fabulous' I was looking (I was around 8kg heavier last time I saw them). I repaid their kind comments by making them listen to the whole 'Idiot Formerly know as Blockbuster Guy' story from scratch, which they seemed to enjoy, especially the bit when Lara Croft, Mowgli and I did a re-enactment of the shopping centre 'incident'. The group split up around 11pm with Little Lulu et al heading off to an Irish Pub and Lara Croft, Mowgli and I trotting off to a bar called...'Deville's'. That's it..the photo above. It's a kitsch little dance club/bar that has a 60's theme which revolves around..Hell. There's devils, a volcano, go-go girls in cages, obscure 60's and 70's clips on the big screen with music to match. Bizarrely, the DJ was Courtney Murphy, of Australian Idol fame (or not). Don't know quite how he landed that gig. His choice in music ranged from totally groovin' to absolute crap and we left when our dance shoes got bored..sometime after 1am, and was tucked up in bed shortly after 2. Yesterday was quiet. Crumbed chicken breast stuffed with Camembert, followed by mud cake for my birthday lunch at mums and then home to crash on the couch and watch dvd's with the boy. Got bored around 9pm and noticed BB Idiot was online at RSVP. Did you know that if you try to log in to RSVP with your username and get the password wrong 3 times you get locked out? I managed to get BB Idiot locked out and I went to bed all happy and feeling like I'd really accomplished something.

Edit - I just got to work and my gorgeous workmates got me pressies! My girlfriend - formerly known as Ms Moneypenny - got me a beautiful ceramic picture frame and some wrinkle cream (yes..I think it's a hint). Mowgli, Lara Croft, Spiffo and the rest got me.....2 DVD Star Trek Boxed sets!! The Time Travel Fan Collection and the BORG Fan Collection. Yippee! More stuff to watch on the treadmill!

Been feeling a little blue for the last couple of days. Actually it's not the last couple of days...it's weekends.
I used to love the weekends that my kids went off to their dad's. I breathed a huge sigh of relief and just kicked back and did nothing..or something. It didn't matter, it was just SPACE.
I've loved my free weekends for a while, but when I think back, it's mostly since I stopped dating a few years ago. When I started studying and began really enjoying being just me, my weekends were just fine.
But when I was dating, I remember them as being depressing. Sitting at home drinking and smoking and searching the net for Mr Wonderful. Going on tragic dates with complete knobs or being rejected by guys I liked.
So, now I feel like that again. Ever since BB Idiot. It sucks how one stupid guy can get me into that headspace again. It's not even about him. I was perfectly happy before I met him but now I've started to feel that "I'm never going to meet anyone and I'm going to be alone for the rest of my life" panic creeping in again - and I hate it.
I just want things to go back to normal. I want to sit back and say to my friends..."Gawd, who needs a man, I'm SO happy being single," again, but right now I feel old, decrepid and desperate and I don't quite know how to snap out of it.
Anyway, no biggie. That's just how I'm feeling today. Coulda kept it to myself but I thought I'd get it out so I can look back some day and think about what a dickhead I'm being at the moment.

Looking forward to seeing Terminator Salvation with a bunch of friends tomorrow. Here's one of the reasons why ;o) Yummy Sam Worthington (a gorgeous Perth boy). This is a special request for Kerry. Sorry, couldn't find any shirtless shots but there is a wet one.

I kept thinking "what would Sarah Connor do?" but decided she would probably also like a muesli bar. I think I put on about 2kg overnight. Let's just call in post BB Guy carb loading and forget about it shall we? The end.

BTW I've put yesterday's photo into my phone as my standard response to any future texts from said dickhead.
Thanks again for all the comments :o)

I'm actually OK. Can't quite believe it but it's like someone flicked a switch and I'm just over it. I must admit that as soon as I saw his profile this morning I burst into tears and had a good old howl for about 10 minutes. I phoned a couple of friends, pulled myself together and posted about it. Then of course I read all your lovely comments and had another cry. This isn't going to get me down. It's actually going to spur me on to be the best I can possibly be, not just 'acceptable' but exceptional. Not just with my weight/physique but with my fitness, my degree, my work and my relationships with others. I don't want any crap in my life, just honesty, integrity ummm...oh and lots of laughter (even if it's laughing at myself and my stooopid mistakes). Kerry, you're right. I did well to get out of it when I did. In the past I would have tried to pretend it wasn't happening and humiliate myself even further. Miss Katie, no he's not worthy of my time and I don't intend to waste one more minute on him (and I'm going to Civic from now on!!) Caz, no I won't close myself off. I just won't go looking for it. I'm quite happy to trip over it accidentally though, and yes...I AM a good stalker ;o) Rach, that is SO what I intend to do. He will be spewing when he sees me this summer, sauntering into the Sci Fi aisle (the only time I will go to Blockbuster again mind you). Jude, you are right, I was never comfortable with it and my instincts were pretty good. I love that word 'fucktard'. It's in my Fifi Dictionary now. Kitty, yep this has TOTALLY spurred me on like you would not believe. Nope, not gonna let it put a dent in things at all. In fact, this could actually be a major turning point for me. I am a great believer that everything happens for a reason and I don't think this is any exception. Tearose, yes I agree, he IS the idiot. I'm kinda realising that now :o) And Cheryl, I saved you for last so I could say - no he's not "just the Blockbuster Guy", he's JUST THE BLOCKBUSTER GUY WHO LIVES AT HOME WITH HIS PARENTS. Ahh....feeling a lot better now. So, off to make a shopping list and write up a new and improved training regime for the next few weeks. Taking it up a step. Eating a little more and training a little more. Need some caps on my delts before summer. It's June now and it's my birth month so going to make it a brilliant one! And just mentioning again...I love you guys to bits. Here's something for the BB Guy.
