Yep, that's Frankie circa 1985, around the time I bought my first weights bench - 5'8 and 55kg. Go on, laugh it up. No boobs and ugly hair. We won't mention the swimmers.
So I've been a bit slack with the old blogging lately and thought I'd chuck in a random post just for fun. Very busy, and just basically DOING IT (instead of talking about doing it).
- I weighed myself this morning and for the first time in nearly 3 years my bodyfat was less than 40% (yays).
- Kids were supposed to be back at school Tuesday but Ethan's been off sick for two days (nooo).
- Today I asked him if he wanted me to pick him up a donut from the bakery on the way home. His reply - "don't you think I've had enough sugar today?" (WTF?).
- The Slovakian is doing my frikkin' head in (still incredibly hot though).
- The Idiot Formerly known as Blockbuster Guy (IFKABBG) may or may not have moved into a cheap and nasty rental around the corner from me (even more cheap and nasty and MY rental).
- Still been doing the occasional 'semi-stalk' of IFKABBG. By semi-stalking I mean totally NOT actual stalking. Actual stalking is when like you wait til the kids are asleep and drive past his place in your pyjamas. That is TOTALLY not what I've been doing. I'm just occasionally driving past there at 1am in the morning when I am coming home from various social events I've been attending. Nothing fully stalkerish about that. It's called 'taking a slight detour', that is all.
That's all I have to report right now. Trying to work up courage to get out in the shed for hams, biceps and cardio but it's bloody cold!

Facebook friends may have seen my references to a sexy/crazy Slovakian. Yes...he is sexy and yes he's frikkin' crazy and got some serious issues, and by serious I mean he's been dealt some serious shit both as a child and an adult. But it's ok. We're only chat buddies so I don't have to deal with any of them....and if he starts his crap with me online I just tell him to fuck off.
All we do is argue, and I really like it. I know I shouldn't but I do. Met him quite by accident as I'd taken my profile off the dating site but there must have been some weird glitch that allowed him to see that I'd viewed him and then he sent me a contact request.
Keeping it strictly online only for now as I don't need any more drama in my life at the moment, unless it involves....ya know....nakedness.

Me: I saw 'Bruno' today.
Mum: Yes I was thinking of seeing that one myself.
Me: I think you'll like it. I thought it was better than 'Borat', much funnier.
Mum : I didn't like 'Borat'. Do you think Bruno is really gay?
Me: He's not gay mum.
Mum: Are you sure? He looks and talks very gay.
Me: Mum, he's not gay, he's married to Isla Fisher and has a kid.
Mum: No, Borat is married to Isla Fisher....

What a lazy Sunday morning I'm having. It's my kid free weekend and I'm loving it.
Last night a couple of my fellow nerds, Lara Croft and Mowgli, came over for a Zombie night (no we didn't dress up!).
We had a yummy dinner (spinach and ricotta cannelloni followed by chocolate self saucing pudding with cream AND ice-cream) and watched a couple of zombie flicks : Dead Snow (a Norwegian film about Nazi Zombies - was a big hit at Sundance Film Festival), and Black Sheep (a NZ film about..um...mutant killer sheep).
Both movies were frikkin' hilarious. Then we sat around and discussed what other nerd-like events we could organise...with paintball or outdoor laser combat looking quite probable.
Today I am going to the movies with another friend..hmm...let's call her Samantha, to see Bruno. Looking forward to that as well...see? I'm actually LOOKING FORWARD to stuff!

I had the BEST time at Supanova Pop Culture Expo yesterday!
I took my boy Ethan, and headed off with fellow geeks Lara Croft and Mowgli for the day. We wandered around the exhibits, bought goodies (I got a Kara Thrace "Starbuck" figurine and Ethan got a Dr Who 'Sonic Screwdriver' - no I don't know what that is either).
We went to see a Q&A with Richard Hatch aka Capt Lee 'Apollo' Adama from the original series of Battlestar Galatica and another Q&A with the very HOT and funny Karl Urban (who plays Dr 'Bones' McCoy in the new Star Trek movie).
Some of you may know already that I am a MASSIVE Battlestar Galactica fan. I loved the old series back in the late 70's when I was a teenager and have just recently enjoyed the brilliantly written drama which is the re-imagined 21st century Battlestar. Richard Hatch also appeared in the new Battlestar as a political activist, Tom Zarek.
Much to my delight, my teenage crush Richard Hatch (the handsome dark haired guy above) was there, along with fellow BSG star from the original - Dirk Benedict, who played Starbuck (Starbuck is played by a woman in the new series).
Both were doing signings and photos (which I couldn't afford). But I had fun nonetheless trying to snap photos of them as they were out and about. I managed to get this one of the back of Richard Hatch!
However, later in the day, me and my geeks were just standing around, quite a way from the autograph signing area when Mowgli and Lara Croft start saying "ooh...he's coming over Frankie, he's heading straight for us"..and I'm like "yeah sure" busily fiddling with my camera and refusing to look. They got quite frantic so I turned around just in time to see him come right up to us, say 'hi guys', walk around us with his hand on my arm and give it a gentle squeeze. NO WAY!
Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict are both 64 years old and still SO charismatic. I didn't get up close to Dirk but Richard was my main crush and now I can die happy :o)
Ethan said it was "The best day ever!" Here he is with Ironman.
Ok..that's my BSG rant for today.
