So here's the Vlog.  Apologies if this shows up 15 times in google reader.  I kept having to re-upload as it was out of sync.

Caz said...

Frankie you look really good :)

I hope your heart heals soon

Iris Flavia said...

Funny accent :-)
It is Aussie-style!
I´m kinda "glad" I don´t have a web-cam, I hate to hear my voice.

Aw, gosh.
My heart hurts hearing the bad news.
So sorry. Wishing you strength...
Hugs! Xx

Female Aussie accents are the best of all!

emma said...

hehe your voice is gorgeous and you're smoking hot. you have a bit of an almost british twang. my accent is alot more ocker than yours.

Electro-Kevin said...

Very nice.

Frankly I hate the way I look and the way I sound.

I've been tagged too.

I agree with Caz and with XL! Great to see/hear you in this Frankie and here's to the future for you :-)

Electro-Kevin said...

Well I'm certainly not posting it on my blog !

Frankie said...

Hey DogBoy - I'll check it out!

Caz - thanks, I hope it does, but not too soon x

Iris - yeah..haha would love to see you do one!

xl - yes they are, is that why you visited here?

emma - I think mine changes. It started quite British when I was young (don't know why as mum is sri lankan and dad from the US) but I remember when I was in the band it was very ocker. Depends on who we hang with sometimes I think.

Electro Kevin - welcome! Thanks. Going to check yours out shortly.

NWT - thanks Alasdair x

Your accent is like music, pretty woman. I'm glad I thought to ask someone in West Australia and someone in East Australia because you are different, ever so slightly. It's like Shakespeare. And I like the 'champaigne' answer. Several of you think alike - all women, too. Ha ha! I guess I should've said 'beer.' I love your answer for the remote - a small child. That's classic! And thank you so much for doing this. :-)

EK - hahaha poor chook!
