Lent 2012 Progress..

So it's not even been a week yet and I managed to break my Lent! I managed to stay off bread for breakfast during weekdays, for all of one day. And I managed to stay off fizzy drinks for about 3 days? I accidentally took a sip from a friend while blindfolded.. On the 4th sip I realised I had given them up for Lent. Now I'm sick so I'm drinking a fizzy Lucozade (a Powerade equivalent here in the UK). I haven't done Zumba once this week, and I also didn't go to badminton on Monday like I normally do because I'm sick.

I have however been on time, which is good, and I'm starting to be more productive, if anyone follows me on Twitter then they would have received my updates on how quickly I was getting through my to-do list! Most of my to-do list is to do with organisation so I'm doing that. The other thing I'm extremely proud of myself for is that I've been able to stay off crisps (chips to you Americans)! Now I'm a crisp-aholic, so this is quite a big deal for me!

Hopefully I can stay off the crisps and keep on doing the other good things I've taken up!

Wish me luck!

  1. A sip from a friend while blindfolded? How in the...?

    1. I was all excited that I had a comment then, but it's only you!

      Yes I should probably explain that..

      It's very boring, not exciting at all. For my dissertation I need to dark adapt people, so I was sitting in a room blindfolded trying to be dark adapted so that I could be a subject in my experiment, which my good friend kindly ran for me, which is basically comparing vision in light conditions (light room) to dark conditions (dark room). If you don't adapt properly the experiment doesn't work so well, hence me sitting there and them passing me drinks etc. They also filmed me blindfolded eating Prawn Crackers... not amused.

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.
