I’m a woman and a WWE fan. So what?!

There are a lot of misconceptions about female WWE fans – from the supposed idea that the only we watch just to ogle at the male wrestler’s bodies (we don’t – it takes more to be a WWE superstar than having a chiseled body) to the illusion that we don’t understand the matches.

Summer Book Haul.

I’ve been stuck in the house for a number of days now because of migraines. Ouch! So yesterday I decided to head into town to pick up a few things. And as usual I came back with a lot of new things.

What’s on my film shelf?

Yes. I have a film shelf. Don’t a lot of people? I thought I’d share some of the films I have on said book shelf. Not all of them are mine – some of them I’ve borrowed, some are my partners and some aren’t even films! There’s a mix of games and TV shows in […]
