Just An Update...

...sorry I've been absent. Stress, and possibly illness, has run it's course with me over the last two and a half weeks. *Knock on wood* I think it's safe to say I'm starting to recover, but last time I thought that, I ended up going to the doctor to be sure I was alright enough to not be laid up in a hospital bed with a drip.

Needless to say, it HAS been an interesting two weeks (not just the illness). The first week was spent dealing with loss, but trying to enjoy myself and the surrounding of family (which I'll get to later). The past week and a half, I've spent with my aunt, uncle, and their two children. I have to take this time out to thank them for their hospitality, and whether they know it or not, giving me the honor of loafing around a bit while I try to recover from whatever it is/was that's truly bugging me. So much can be said about how they're only doing what family is supposed to do (something I personally believe I know all about)... but even still, I PERSONALLY know family who wouldn't go out on a limb (or paved ground even) to loan a family member a bottle of water (not that family should even loan, they should just give with blessing).

So I'm forever grateful to my uncle sticking to his word about keeping me comfortable in his own home until I leave Louisiana. He's not once griped at me for drinking all the 7-Up, or his water, hogging the television or taking up space and restricting some of his everyday privacy. And in the same light, forever grateful to my aunt for the same.

It's been a real treat though, to spend time with my (soon-to-be) 3 year old, and 1 month and some change, cousins. Through the last 18 months, I've seen the elder quite a bit, but not as much as 10-minutes apart should be seen... due to the situation in which I was brought here. I've had fun seeing him in his everyday demeanor, and feel great in knowing that the "baby"-"evil" genius is WELL on his way to taking over the world.

The younger does everything a 1 month old does... nothing special but everything spectacular... and I've enjoyed my time spent burping him, feeding him, having him fall asleep on my shoulder. It's been an incredible way to consume my mind and thought process and help me to relax and enjoy the things I may have been taking for granted.

I'll add to the blog again soon (hopefully tomorrow) and want you all to know that I am doing alright considering.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
