Made a nooh frand. He shares his name and his nickname with D. Freaky!
In other news, I've discovered my inspirational chant - 'ley taal'. When I'm lying on a cold, hard floor, legs perpendicular to the ground, and bursting my lungs at the sixteenth abdominal crunch, I say,"Ley taal," and voila! Four more crunches happen like a dream. When I'm taking my cellulite for a run on the treadmill, and the world seems dizzyingly distant and not-quite-worthwhile, "Ley taal," I wheeze, and suddenly my chariots are on fire.
'Ley taal', incidentally, is how the Spanish pronounce 'lethal'. It is also, as a matter of fact, the name of a transsexual in Pedro Almodovar's film "High Heels". I'm yet to ask myself whether I find the name or the tranny more fascinating, it doesn't help either that Lethal, the transsexual singer also doubled up as a delectable male, heterosexual Judge in a very becoming false beard. It's all very complicated, but the film is definitely worth a watch.
Anyhow, I find myself mouthing "ley taal" embarassingly often every day, and it makes me feel nice too. Just so you know.
