Lady Luck Has Been On My Side

Lately, I've been quite lucky.. I randomly seem to be winning things. Now I'm not saying I'm winning massive amazing prizes, but every little bit helps.

A lady from Microsoft at university dragged me over to test some software, such as Windows 7, OneNote, SkyDrive and something else that I can't quite remember. Anyways, I was reluctant to do it, but at the end of the demos they tell you if you've won. The little prizes were sweets and USBs with little memory, the big prizes were laptops and an Xbox.

I happened to win a computer mouse, which I know doesn't sound like fun, but it's actually pretty cool. I'm the kind of person who loves technology, but I'm a bit of a destroyer (at least that's what my family nickname me!), and to turn my mouse on I've got to snap it in half.. which is amazing to me.. I get to "break" something in order to make it work! It's smooth to the touch, great to use and it's wireless!

You're probably wondering which mouse I'm rambling about it's the Microsoft Arc Touch (you can see a tutorial here) and at $59.95, it's not a bad win!


Wow.. I must be sad to get so excited over a mouse!

On another note, SkyDrive is really useful, especially for documents and creating groups and sharing word documents as groups on Facebook aren't really as flexible.


The other win, which I found out about yesterday was a £25 Amazon voucher, which is from a mini newsletter that my university puts out monthly. All I had to do was find the webpage with the love heart on (in aid of Valentine's Day) and email them to tell them where I found it - really easy!

So yes, all in all I'm a very happy bunny!

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.
