I'm talking about ACTUAL wrestling, people, it's not a euphemism. Well, it's still fake, but, y'know. (Random Tuesday Thoughts)


It's the first Tuesday of the New Year! The New Decade, even.

I feel like there should be something sparkly here.

That seems like a lot of work, though, so I'll just jump right in.

I'm blogging tonight to the background soundtrack of Bret Hart's "triumphant" return to wrestling.

Yes, I DO live with a 12-year-old boy (who lives in the body of a 35-year-old man). I'm thinking at some point I should have The Talk with him, y'know? The one where I tell him that some things, like Santa, the Easter Bunny, and wrestling, aren't *gasp* real?

Oh, here, I found something sparkly:


You know that needle-scratching-off-the-record sound that they use in movies and TV to indicate an abrupt and awkward end to the action?

How does anybody under the age of 20 get the reference?

Oh, wait. DJs. Okay, never mind. Carry on.

I went shopping today and all the Valentine's crap was already crowding the shelves. Baby Jesus is crying, you guys.

Tomorrow is my first day back to work since before Christmas. I'm crying along with Baby Jesus.

There is a lot of pleather, booing, and bad combovers in this WWE thing.

Best costume EVA.

Sorry for all the very abrupt random thoughts today. They're all I can muster before I get distracted by bad rock music and fake grunting and WRESTLING ANNOUNCER VOICE GUY. Also, I've been off work for a week. I thought I'd relax and do a lot of Nothing. So I did that, and apparently my brain atrophied.

It was probably dangerously close to liquefying anyway.

It's nice to see that political incorrectness is still alive and well in wrestling. They just tossed a little person a cookie for attacking on cue.

I tore through the entire run of Runaways trade paperbacks in two days. I know I read quickly, and comics obviously makes it even quicker, but now I'm thinking about getting some kind of e-reader. I don't read as much as I'd like to, just because I don't have time to get to the library or bookstore. Obviously I prefer actual books - I stare at a screen plenty already - but if I could just download books I'd probably do more reading, which would be a plus. Does anybody have a Kindle or anything? Like 'em?

There, now you have a starting point for your own random thoughts! Got some bits left over from last year, or some shiny new 2010 thoughts that you need to get out there? Write em down and link em up!
