Partial Rumble! Spoilerific!

Hmm, so been watching the Royal Rumble with Max and D. Of course now that the battle royale starts we have to wait til tomorrow. School day! Boo hiss, I got to stay up for that in my day heheheh. Oh wait, I digress. So Matt Hardy starts off against Jack Swagger, and pretty much gives a solid brilliant performance yet quelle surprise Swagger retains the belt. Unfortunate but not a shocker, it doesn't take goss sites (wahey Rajah) sites to tell you he'll keep the belt on him.

Yet Hardy deserves it...but too many looksees on 'news' sites will give you the false hope of an interference by Christian, who is finally otw back to WWE after rocking it in TNA. Lots of 'We Want Christian' shouts, interference in brother Jeff Hardy's championship bout. So lots of crazy bumps taken, Chavo Guerrero and Vicky Guerrero interfering. Matt comes out, gets chairs for himself and Jeff and of course I'm cheesey and am all oooh 'conchairto' (hell we all were lol) but no Matt puts a swerve on and lays out Jeff basically handing Edge the championship.

Now I know it's all a giant soap opera, having watched it since I was six and having a brother who wrestled I'm no stranger to storylines being mapped out months/weeks in advanced etc. Just check leaks on storylines on various gossip and new sites will map out a good portion of what you'll see. But dag, this doesn't sit right with me, it isn't enjoyable to me to see Matt Hardy portrayed as a childish, vindictive boor who lays out his brother in jealousy to see someone like Edge over.

For me Matt Hardy over the years has worked too hard, too earnestly and too well to get stuck into yet another unsavoury role while Jeff Hardy once again gets elevated. Yes his spots are amazing, wow no one can rock ladder moves and aerials quite in the manner Jeff Hardy does..all the same Matt Hardy is always being positioned to be seen badly just as you think he's smooth sailing, like holding the ECW championship belt. Ahem. At least it's pretty.

Can't wait to see the Rumble tomorrow, must evade sites to see the winner. Such temptation but for it costing what it does ppv wise, I think I'll manage it. XD
Just. Heheh. Good lord I enjoy harping on about wrestling. Frightening isn't it?
Ahh well, will still cheer on Matt Hardy regardless of this icky heel turn. Now here's to hoping Burchill is in the Rumble! My pick for winners is either Kozlov or Trips. For guesses, in a world where I'd be all squee I'd want it to be Burchill or CM Punk.

Funnily though, have never minded or been really shameful of watching and attending wrestling. People have a lot to say about it good or bad never really straight down the middle in my experience people either dig it or openly hate it with a passion. Again I relate it to a soap opera, but instead of large hair and bad clothes, it is bad hair and dodgey spray tans and bad clothes too, admittedly.

Blech the stomach flu has finally caught me, it has run the course through everyone in the house and I thought I rocked some +1 evasion. Not so much apparently. That's not going to be fun tonight and into tomorrow unfortunately. Oh good, I'm done marking out over wrestling tonight and rambling on at length. ^^

Etsy fun

So, I enjoy Etsy like a lot of folks. Check out the obscene yum that is Cupcakes in Jars. Daaamn! Everything looks obscenely good. There might be a cupcake en route to me sometime next week. By might I mean, why yes, yes there is.

Alright, The Nerdapalooza Tapes album is wicked good. If you purchase it as it is a pre-order right now you get access to mp3s so you can listen now and have a nice physical copy down the road. I esp. dig Front's goodness and CHSC and Maja in particular. Although the Zombies! Organize!! track is catchy as hell. Plus Headshot is fantastic.

Hmm, so I got a tube of Breath Palette's toothpaste as a gift in Pumpkin Pudding flavor this christmas (thanks Amanda!) in my stocking. Straight out the gate I was mildly grossed out yet intruiged, tooth paste in Pumpkin Pudding flavor? What, why, how? All of those.

However, it is super tasty to my surprise. A big ol fan of pumpkin, this tasted more honey like then pumpkin but using it, now crest and colgate may have to take a permanent backseat. Showroom clean every time, feels like being back from the hygienest each use, my old brands just can't come close to it. Doesn't feel as harsh.

Have to laugh though at the slogan 'Experience the flavor. Enjoy the menthol finish.' Sounds like a late eighties Newport ad.

A lot of the flavors sound quite good, but for me entirely questionable is Bitter Chocolate and Cola. Doesn't sound palettable when you want for that fresh clean feeling. Nothing sounds as refreshing as say brushing with flat Cola. Wondering about giving the Rose or Lavender a go. The mouthwash flavors sound interesting too.

Alright enough of that. Head to Hipster Please! and download Optimus Rhyme's amaaaazing holiday EP
TransfORmed. Everything and more than you could want from Optimus Rhyme. Perfect and made of win. Also Hipster Please! is fantastic, check it super often -totally the best of what's nerdy!

How good does this sound? Love the description, thinking of sometime splashing out for a bottle. Wine's not super my thing though. Maybe the description and all that Maynard James Keenan is making it more alluring to me. Mystery.

Got an mail from Steel Navel about a sale and how they have a shazzload of new Kaos stuff, so I clicked to right off because they had the Bronze/Black Leopard print eyelets check out how cute they are. But they'd already sold out of them. Hope BAF stocks them sometime in future. <3

Oldish news, but news nonetheless! 11th Doctor has been revealed! Check out this article from the Telegraph about Matt Smith. Hmm. I <3 10th Doctor David Tennant so much, it will be a hard adjustment but am looking forwards to seeing what Matt Smith does. Who am I kidding? I dig 9th Chris Eccleston too. XD I mean come on, right? Wahey. But man, David Tennant! He's my Time Lord. Yes I said it. That's some hot nerdery right there.
