Ten years after my best mate Nick was killed a tragic hospital accident, his teenage daughter is coming to visit us to talk about her dad. It is all going to be a bit difficult, but I have always hoped she would want to just spend a bit of time learning what he was like when he was a kid, and all the mad stuff we got up to. So it is all going to be a bitter sweet I expect...

Watched and listened to some of the Zuckerberg Senate hearings. Kind of amusing to listen to 60+ year olds ask questions that were obviously prepared by junior staff members. I bet if you asked them what their questions were about, they wouldn't be able.

I came to the conclusion that my life is pretty pathetic when I was taking a piss at work and was thinking how much I'm looking forward to the Andre the Giant documentary on HBO, premiering tonight.

Eh? that's gonna be brilliant, he's a legend. Ok i'm a wrasslin fan, but even as a person, his life was interesting.

He was known as "Le Géant Jean Ferré" here before he became André the Giant.

Always fun to watch.

Paraphrasing: "Would you tell us where you're staying?" - "er....No"

"If we asked you to share with us all the people you have exchanged e-mails with in the last few weeks, would you tell us?" - "er...Not here in public, no".

:oops:

It's a great, affectionate documentary. I recommend it if you like wrestling. They also interview Rob Reiner and his Princess Bride co-stars.

It also gives a pretty good history of pro wrestling. When I was little, I used to watch "Big Time Wrestling" Saturday afternoons. Wrestling was very territorial back then in the US, like 32 different territories from the documentary. Which is way you always saw Pat Patterson (in the documentary), Ray Stevens and Peter Maiva each week.

In my mid 20s, Cable boomed and my roommate and friend at the time used to watch WWF a couple times a week on USA and TBS. That was when Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Randy Savage, George "The Animal" Steele, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Junkyard Dog, and others, including Andre the Giants, were featured on TV. The golden age in my book.

Wrestling was localized back then here too. Our shows were on Sunday mornings, which was great because I could have the tv to myself while others slept or did other things. They did shows in schools too, which was neat.

I also remember those WWF years and all the guys you mention. Good spectacle.

Got a group text from my cousin Karen about her brother who's in rehab in Flagstaff, AZ. He's still not physically able to handle the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of treatment according to the facility director. They think it's going to take six weeks more for him to get there.

He's also had ascites (I had to look it up - fluid build up in the abdominal cavity) and has had to go to the hospital to get his stomach drained. Both are results of his cirrhosis.

He fucked himself real good.
