Simple Things In Life

I often think it’s funny how things turn out, how the course of a day can change, how what seems to be a dull, boring, slow day can transform into something a little less expected.

For the first time in ages we were over staffed at work, I found myself twiddling my thumbs in the corner; I was lacking that much entertainment. My manager offered to send me home early, brilliant, I thought. I was also owed some time so I thought today would be a fine day to take it. I had no plans for the day, thought it would be nice to just go home, relax, make a phone call or two, watch a film, nothing too exciting or special.

Having arranged leaving early, twenty minutes before my shift was to end, two of my friends, one of which I hadn’t seen in a good few months and the other I thought was still on holiday, popped into my work unexpectedly. This was a nice surprise as I wanted to catch up on both of their travels. Turns out they were staying in town for a little bit longer and were undecided about what to do. I got back to work having told them I’d meet them after my shift. The time passed quickly as it often does when a customer wants help finding something specific. With that I left work, found my friends waiting for me, got myself an ice cream and decided to sit by the River Thames with them, the sun was shining after all, which has been a rarity the past couple of months in London.

Going home early is always a perk to most people’s day, but it’s amazing how my friends managed to pick the one day where I was going home three and half hours early, and decided to show up at my work with minutes left of my shift. Some may call it coincidence, other people call it fate, I, on the other hand, call it an unexpected wonderful addition to my regular and slightly boring day.

I know this might not be interesting to many of you, but it’s the simple things in life that make me happy and remind me to appreciate everything in life, after all, it was great to chill with my friends, talk and have a laugh, like we used to.

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.
