WTF?


OK, I just got home from the bar, so it's about 3am, and apparently I left the TV on when I went to work this afternoon. I sat down to check email and such, and as I glanced at the TV, who do I see but Billy Blanks! In case you don't remember him, he's the Tae Bo guru from about a decade ago. Man, I was OBSESSED with Tae Bo back in the day. Come to think of it, I really should start doing it again. It got me in the best shape, physically, that I was ever in. I started doing it the summer I was training for the police academy. Ah, but I digress, and that's a post for another time...

Back to Billy. I had NO idea he ever acted in anything. This movie is bizarre, too, from the few glances I've taken at it since I sat down. Now I'm going to have to google it to see what the hell it's called, and what year it came out. Man, he's in phenomenal shape!! Holy hell, I just snuck a peek at the TV, and he's pretty much in a loincloth. WTF?
*****
Ok, so I just googled him, and I found at least 27 movies listed under his bio. Seriously?! I had no idea he was an actor. I never heard of him before Tae Bo became such a sensation. Hmmm, interesting. So interesting that I'm actually freakin' googling him at 3:30 in the freakin' morning!! Good thing I have to drive my son to school in about 4 hours! Go to bed, you dork!

Thanks, Suz, I'd better get back in the habit of doing that. By the time I went to bed it was 4, and my son came home at 7 :( Naturally, I ran errands after taking him to school, and now here it is, just after 9, and I'm back on this damn computer!! I did, however, just finish a workout video, so I'm pretty proud of myself! Billy inspired me this morning, what can I say! I didn't have the energy to look for my Tae Bo tapes, though, so I did some walking tape I have. Yay for me! I'm going to try and do a tape every morning from now on. This is the big "starting fresh" week, as I go back to work Wednesday morning. boo hoo! But, hey, by the end of this school year, maybe I'll be in some kind of shape other than round!

Police academy??? Please elaborate.

I'm guessing you didn't pass any of the background checks...
