Back From Holiday

Before I proceed, I should clarify why the song to the video tribute to leon was David Lee Roth's "JUST A GIGOLO", as yhsmom has asked me the relevance of the song. Actually, the mind is a strange thing....it's just that we've been calling Leon a Gym Whore, (or I have), afterall, if numerous gyms are paying you for your services, that's what it makes you la right.... but its said in a most complimentary manner, not derogatory, before the Defenders of Leon spring an attack on me. So, whore, gigolo, all same thing. Hence the song. In addition, its kinda catchy. And the words about dancing etc also quite fit. The only thing that DOESNT fit is in the song, the singer is bemoaning his loneliness, and since Leon's birthday celebrations, I've been told, stretch until the 17th of December, I hardly think loneliness is even remotely an issue.

Had a great time in Langkawi with the kids, sported a very slight tan, as wife kept reminding me of my age and how I have to slap on SPF 2000, etc etc....

So that was a break of nearly 10 days from the gym, as my last class was RPM with Cameron (another Mr Cool) on 23rd November. Missed Leon's saturday combat, coz I had the final class of my Level One Cake Decorating Course. Went for nikeboy's class instead, at MJH. The 10 day hiatus took its toll, and I found myself uncordinated and exhausted.

On Sunday, finally made it, after missing it for 3 months I reckon, to 2ndFSI's class. Actually, the guy is a great instructor, in my opinion. Clear cueing, humourous, great track selection. I was kinda glad he did his trademark One Night In Bangkok. I haven't been for a step class for so long, that I even forgot to raise the step board to the middle level, as such, nearly tripped during the warm up coz the board was too low. I can't remember the last time I was at step, probably it was young Klev replacing FSI. Also, it was to my relief, as if he read my mind, that he mentioned who was singing GLORIA. I mean, I've virtually grown up with that song, but at that moment, I was racking my brains to try and think whooooo the hell sang gloria....Melissa Manchester? Tina Turner? Bonnie Tyler? NO NO NO....PHEW!!!! As if reading my mind, 2FSI said, "we have two laura brannigan songs today".


And yes, this is a rather lacklustre post, mainly coz havent been gyming.

I used to enjoy watching David Lee Roth perform when he was front man for Van Halen! Actually if I am not mistaken the original singer of Just a Gigolo is Bing Crosby.
