Well, I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day Weekend.

On Sunday, my Wife and I went Shopping and I managed to buy two pairs of Pants for $50. I think that’s a pretty good deal.

Today, (Monday) my Wife and I checked out the Labor Day Parade here in Ottawa. Neither of us have ever been to it or even really heard about it before, so we were both curious.

Basically, it was different Workers being pissed off about unfair treatment at work. I always thought Parades were supposed to have happy people celebrating, but apparently not.

After they passed us, we decided to head to the Park where the Parade ended. There was a free BBQ, but we didn’t eat. We stayed for a few minutes just to check it out. The BBQ was at McNabb Park, where I used to go as a kid for Day Camp. I haven’t been there for 20 years, even though I pass by it often on the way home.

By this time, I was starting to melt like a Cripsicle (Crip Popsicle), so we decided to get an Iced Coffee. We went to Tim Horton’s, but they don’t make it. They just have Ice Caps, which don’t exactly agree with me. I guess the idea of putting Ice Cubes in Coffee is a wacky idea at Tim Horton’s. Just like the idea of hiring Staff there that can be understood, also seems like a pretty wacky idea.

But hey, I’m unemployed, what do I know?

We continued our journey in search of Caffinated Heaven, and we found Starbucks.

Ah Starbucks

Starbucks, Starfucks
The first Coffee Shop, I see opened today.
I wish I may.
I wish I might.
Need a Gasoline filled Coffee made just right.

We got an Iced Coffee and had it outside.
Afterwards, we headed down behind The Supreme Court Building to soak up some more sun.

We headed home shortly afterwards.
All in all, we were out in the sun for over three hours.

Tonight, I’m gonna watch WWE Monday Night Raw.
Tonight’s special guest Host is none other than Bob Barker!

That’s gonna be odd to see, but hopefully he does a good job.

I admit that I still watch The Price Is Right, even though Drew Carey’s the Host.
It just isn’t the same without Bob Barker, but at least it isn’t Rosie O’Donnell.
She was rumoured at one point to replace Bob Barker.
Yikes!

Well, tomorrow I’m off to Walmart, which is always fun beyond belief.

That’s it for now.

Thanks for reading.

Last night, I headed to a nearby Restaurant to check out the accessibility.
It didn’t start off too well.

The Restaurant is on the top floor of a Hotel.
You gotta take the Elevator all the way up to the floor below it, have someone walk upstairs, get a key or grab someone with a key, come back downstairs to bring me upstairs.

It’s a retarded setup, but my Wife and I are going there to celebrate tomorrow night.
This could be interesting, but hopefully everything will go well.

As promised, tomorrow, I will be sharing the story of how I proposed to my Wife three years ago in Toronto.

After the Restaurant thing, I headed to the Grocery Store to help out my Wife.
To my surprise, she had just finished her Shopping, so we walked home together.
I spent some time at her place before heading home to watch WWE Monday Night Raw.

America’s Got Talent is on tonight. I’m not gonna predict who’s performing tonight, but I’m looking forward to it.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a full recap, my marriage proposal story, and perhaps a few other things as well.

Thanks for reading.

Last night, I did Laundry and helped my Wife with Grocery Shopping. I like to push the Cart around & then I carry her bags home. Yes, even disabled people can help able bodied people. I put the handy in Handicapped. Alot of people look at me and seem amused that I can push a Cart with my feet & legs.
I’ve got mad skills.

Tonight, we’re gonna watch America’s Got Talent.

After I did my post yesterday, I thought of more questions for the Q & A, so here’s some more.

What’s your favorite food?

BS Answer: I eat power pellets like Pacman.

Truth: I have a hard time chewing food, so I usually drink Ensure & Isosource. Basically, they’re meals in a can, or as I call it, shit in a can. When I was younger, I used to eat pureed Hospital food. If you’ve ever seen or had Pureed Green Peas, you know why I choose to eat from a can now.

Occasionally, I enjoy eating soft foods like Ice Cream, Yogurt, Popsicles, Gelato, Chocolate anything, Creme Brulee, Cake, Pancakes, etc etc etc

What TV shows do you watch?

BS Answer: Informercials! Lots & lots of Infomercials!

Truth: I’m a big fan of Family Guy, The Simpsons, & South Park. I also watch CSI, CSI: New York, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory, Two & A Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, WWE Monday Night Raw, WWE Friday Night Smackdown, & many others.

What Music do you listen to?

BS Answer: I LOVE Elevator Music & sometimes I dance to the beats of people farting.

Truth: I like different types of Music. It depends on my mood. Mostly, I’m a Rock guy, but sometimes I listen to Blues or Jazz. One of my guilty pleasures is watching Music Videos from the 80s on my TV. It’s cheesy as hell, but HILARIOUS, and brings back memories.

What kind of Movies do you like?

BS Answer: Porn! I’m a huge Perv for Porn. I’m Pervy for Porn, baby!

Truth: I’m a big fan of Comedies. I have so many favorite Movies that it’s not even funny.

Do you drink and/or do drugs?

BS Answer: Well I snort two lines of Metamucil every day. That’s why I’m such a happy person now.

Truth: While I enjoy the odd Beer or Wine, my drinking days are behind me. As for Drugs, yeah I’ve done Drugs in the past, but that’s behind me too. Basically, I managed to quit both cold turkey, which was really tough to do.

When’s your Birthday?

BS Answer: I don’t really have one because I was made in a Factory.

Truth: January 4th.

What’s your opinion of the Internet & Social Networking?

BS Answer: If I can get free Porn, bring it on!

Truth: I LOVE the Internet & Social Networking. It gives disabled people a bigger & better chance to be seen & heard. I don’t always understand how certain sites or things work, but I have a big online pressence, and I plan on expanding that, as much as I can.

What’s the story, morning glory?

BS Answer: A stupid name for a CD.

Truth: How the hell would I know? Ask Oasis & let me know what Noel said after he punches you.

What’s your goal in life?

BS Answer: I want to solve World Hunger.

Truth: This is gonna sound selfish, but I want to be famous Worldwide. I don’t care if it’s a Movie, a Talk Show, a TV show cameo, or a Commercial, I want to be famous. I was actually in a Movie/Interactive DVD Video Game a few years ago, which was pretty fun. The “set” was right near where I live. I played a bad guy, which was the main reason why I signed up for it. Sadly, I don’t think it ever got released.

Besides that, I’d love to live in a Wheelchair Accessible House with my Wife. It’d probably be a two bedroom. Of course, the Basement would be like Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, or close to it.

What’s the meaning of life?

BS Answer: Well, Life is a Cereal apparently, so it’s tasty.

Truth: Life’s too short to even consider that. Life is what YOU want it to be. Have fun, gamble, drink, do drugs, work, sleep, be rich, be poor. Whatever your life consists of, enjoy it, and have fun. It’s a big plus if you can make a difference in a someone’s life, but you don’t HAVE to. As long as you’re enjoying it, nobody gets hurts, & you’re not doing too many illegal things, that’s what life should mean.

That’s it for now, I’m all tapped out.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of America’s Got Talent.

Thanks for reading.

As you all know, my weekend was pretty packed.
Between the Rideau Canal Festival and the Busker Festival, plus seeing Funny People, I was out there.

Yesterday, my Wife and I headed to the Bytown Museum as part of the Rideau Canal Festival. It was free admission, plus I’ve never actually been there before, which is an extremely rare thing for me.

The Museum talks about the history of Ottawa, formerly called Bytown. They talk about everything about how we became Canada’s Capital, its British roots etc etc. It was fun down there.

Another cool aspect of the Building is that it’s haunted, which is something that interests me. While I was there, I saw and or felt a few Ghosts hanging around. They were all still wearing Uniforms or other attire associated with that era.

Typically, I don’t get scared by Ghosts and I’ve come to accept the fact that this is just an ability that I have. I do my best not to disturb them and it’s more of a natural curiousity for me. Before anyone asks, I don’t watch Ghost Whisperer, but my Wife does. I personally find it too over the top for me.

After we left there, I headed to the Mall while my Wife went to buy some food. We joined up shortly after and headed home.

We headed back out again after Supper to catch the Grand Finale of the Busker Festival. We arrived late, so I had to push my way up near the front, so I could see.

Pushing your way through the crowd with a 500+ pound powered wheelchair can be quite daunting. Usually when they see me barrelling towards them, they move, and really, it’s the right choice to make.

It started to rain, but we stay for the whole thing. The show was pretty good and they managed to raise $900 for the Children’s Wish Foundation by auctioning off two t-shirts that were signed by all of the performers.

We returned home for the night and I watched WWE Monday Night Raw.

Tonight, we’re gonna watch America’s Got Talent.
Well that’s it for now, but thanks for reading.

My Tuesday was pretty quiet, mostly because it rained. I did manage to get out briefly to pick-up my Wife at work. It rained a few minutes after we got home, so we got lucky.

Question is though, will we be so lucky on Canada Day?

Right now, my plan is to get up around 9:30 or 10, hopefully to the sun, and then head down to Parliament Hill for the Noon show.

At some point, I also hope to get to Confederation Park to hear some Jazz.

Will I make it or will Mother Nature piss all over me?

Stay tuned for the continuing story of a Crip.

Thanks for reading.

The Tag Team Match got moved to the pre-show, so none of us saw it. I do know that the Colons won. I was correct about that one.

Now let’s see what I got wrong.

CM Punk won the MITB Match for the second year in a row.

Santino Marella dressed as a woman named Santina and won the 25 Diva Battle Royal. He/she is now known as Miss Wrestlemania.

Chris Jericho beat Jimmy Snuka/Roddy Piper/Ricky Steamboat by pinning Steamboat. After the match, Mickey Rourke knocked out Chris Jericho.

Rey Mysterio defeated JBL to become the new IC Champion.

Triple H defeated Randy Orton to keep the WWE Title.

I was right about everything else.

It’s that time of year again, wrestling fans. It’s time for Wrestlemania. That means that it’s also time for me to make my predictions about what’s going to happen on the show.

Chris Jericho vs. Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and Rowdy Roddy Piper w/Ric Flair For Chris Jericho to win, he has to defeat all three of the legends. For the legends to win, they have to defeat Chris Jericho just one time.

Alright, so in my opinion, the WWE dropped the ball on this one. Most fans (including myself) were expecting/hoping Stone Cold Steve Austin would face Chris Jericho in one final match. This would be fitting considering that Austin will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this weekend. It could’ve been like the Ric Flair/HBK match from last year, but with Austin winning in his home State of Texas. Instead, we get to see Jericho take on three legends.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Snuka, Piper & Steamboat, but this isn’t the 80’s. I’m pretty sure they’re not as good as they were back then. Even though, the kid in me will be happy to see them appear. Chris Jericho is going to have to work really hard to make them look good.

Rumors are still floating around that Mickey Rourke will be there and that probably means he’ll be a part of the ending.

Prediction: Mickey Rourke punches Chris Jericho out and Ricky Steamboat gets the victory. I should point out that Ricky Steamboat is also going to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this weekend. I still have hope that Austin will somehow get involved as well.

The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

This one will be good, possibly match of the night. There’s not much to say about this. The result is pretty predictable, but the road to it should be damn good.

Prediction: Undertaker pins HBK to keep his Wrestlemania undefeated streak alive for another year.

Extreme Rules Match: Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy

This is another match that has the potential to steal the show. Wrestling fans know that both of these guys take HUGE risks in their respective matches, especially when they were a Tag Team. With this being Wrestlemania, an Extreme Rules Match, and a sibling rivalry, they will definitely be going all out.

Prediction: Matt Hardy will get the upset victory in a modern day version of Bret Hart VS Owen Hart.

25-Diva “Miss WrestleMania” Battle Royal: Known Participants – Melina, Maryse, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Michelle McCool, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Kelly Kelly, Maria, Eve Torres, Katie Lea Burchill, Beth Phoenix, Layla El, Rosa Mendes, Candice Michelle, Natalya Neidhart, Jillian Hall, Tiffany, Sunny, Torrie Wilson, Molly Holly, Victoria and Jackie-Gayda-Haas

The winner of this will be crowned Miss Wrestlemania. While I’m looking forward to seeing some of the older names, I could really care less about this. In a perfect world, Trish Stratus would be involved and go on to win, but as far as we know, she won’t be there.

Prediction: Oh, I don’t know. Let’s throw a dart and see where it lands. I’m gonna say that Sunny somehow wins.

Money in the Bank Ladder Match: CM Punk vs. Kane vs. Mark Henry vs. MVP vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Christian vs. Finlay

The annual MITB Match returns and this is typically one of my favorite matches every year. I’m sure this one will be no different. What I don’t get is why is Mark Henry involved? I hate to say it, but I’m not really sure if he’ll even be able to climb the ladder.

Prediction: I believe that Shelton Benjamin will FINALLY win the MITB. Every year, he manages to steal the match with his insane moves, but has fallen short of winning the big one. This year, he’ll climb the ladder, grab the briefcase, and cash in a World Title shot within a year of winning.

Winner Takes All – WWE Tag Team Titles vs. World Tag Team Titles – Unified Tag Team Title LUMBERJACK Match: The Miz and John Morrison © vs. Carlito and Primo Colon

I really don’t get why they made this a Lumberjack match, but besides that, this should deliver. These two teams have been having outstanding matches for the past few months. For those that don’t know, a Lumberjack match involves various wrestlers standing at ringside throwing the participants back into the ring if they get tossed out or try to escape.

Prediction: Carlito & Primo Colon go on to win.

IC Title Match: JBL © vs. Rey Mysterio

I’m happy to see the IC Title being defended at Wrestlemania, even if it is JBL. There’s not much more to say about this.

Prediction: JBL wins

World Title Match: Edge vs. The Big Show vs. John Cena

I don’t see why they decided to involve The Big Show in this match. I’d rather see Cena VS Edge 1 on 1 and have The Big Show be in the MITB Match. Even if he’s not able to climb that ladder, it’d be worth it to see him knock out a few people in that match.

Prediction: Cena wins the Title.

WWE Title Match: HHH © vs. Randy Orton

These two have been tearing eachother apart since Randy Orton won the Royal Rumble in January. At one time or another, Randy has attacked Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, & HHH. Needless to say, it’s been a heated rivalry with everyone involved.

Prediction: Randy Orton will win the Title when at least one of the McMahon’s either turns on HHH or their assistance backfires.

Well, there you have it.

As for me, I’ll be watching the show at a local Movie Theatre. I’ll be posting the results of my predictions shortly after I get home.

The show is this Sunday at 7 PM Eastern on Pay Per View.

Enjoy the show!
