I scare me. Badly.

(Teenage fangirling, Mozilla, walking)

When I was a teen, my favorite movie was Karate Kid. I did the whole fangirl thing, which of course was a pretty different creature in pre-Internet days. I wrote snailmail here and there trying to get photos of and info about this guy I lusted over. I had it bad for him, totally drooling-Thistle. A few years ago I watched the movie again, and just stared at the guy. He looked like my father. Not just a little, exactly like him. GAH GAH GAH. Why did my mother never poke me and point that out or ask me about it? (I can only hope she didn't know about my obsession.) How did *I* not see it?

(For those not in the know, my father was... not a good person. Abusive and other stuff. I haven't seen him in 15+ years, my sister and mother a little longer than that.)

Wow... The actor's name is Martin Kove, but doing an search on him brings up porn. Lots of porn. Penises everywhere. I wonder if there's a pornstar with his name or if he later (or earlier) did porn. *looks at some* Wow, it looks like him... That's just what I needed, images of him/my father naked, penis dangling. *TWITCH*

Gah, anyway. The song from the movie (Glory Of Love) is still THE most romantic song in my opinion. Every time I hear it I just totally melt. ("I am a man who will fight for your honor, I'll be the hero you're dreaming of ... I'm always strong when you're beside me, I have always needed you, I could never make it alone...) *sniff*


In other news, I'm attempting to switch from IE to Firebird Firefox (they just changed the name). While I'm having *tons* of issues with it, it might be more stable than IE... but probably not. (It crashes four out of the five times I try to open it.) It's kind of interesting, but the problem is that *nothing* supports Mozilla -- none of the usual toolbars or plugins I use. I'm really not sure if I'll stick with it or not (though I love the name Firefox -- so Naruto-ish!).

Lastly, I have a problem with my leg. Grr. I'm not sure if it's a muscle pull or what. It doesn't hurt like a muscle cramp, but it hurts a lot when I walk (same type of pain as when I've sprained my ankles in the past). If you put your foot flat on the floor, then lift your toes and that half of your foot off the floor (keeping your heel down), that's the muscle I hurt. It's in my lower leg, but it lifts your toes/front of foot up. This of course makes walking a pain.

I didn't walk today, but I'm supposed to go tomorrow. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet, I guess I'll see how it feels tomorrow morning...
