Fan Fiction: COMING SOON!!!!



I am moving all of my fan fiction here a chapter at a time I just wanted to make this announcement so you will all know what is going on.

No T, No Shade - YOU DON'T OWE ANYONE ANYTHING




Contrary to what society wants you to believe... YOU DON'T OWE ANYONE ANYTHING!

We are always taught that politeness is the key to life. You get in what you put in... but sometimes don't you get tired of people taking advantage of that politeness. I know I do.

If someone makes you question yourself you have the right to back away from them and not converse or interact with them what-so-ever. That person is manipulating you and/or the situation to their advantage. Backing away is self preservation and defense. You owe them NOTHING.

If in a conversation the person you are talking to keeps trying to get you to admit they are right when it goes against everything you know or think to be true. Do not let anyone change your beliefs or standards. You have the right to FREE THOUGHT and if they can not respect your opinion you do not owe them anything. You don't have to change what you think to suit their beliefs. It's best to not argue or continue the conversation. Simply just change the subject or walk away. You owe them NOTHING.

You don't OWE anyone a fake compliment, smile, fake truth or anything. If it feels wrong for you to say or do it... DON'T DO IT. Don't think because someone does this to you that you owe them the same in return. Don't fake it... be genuine or don't do it because YOU OWE THEM NOTHING.

If you feel your feelings are being forgotten, pushed aside, or manipulated in anyway shape or form, you don't have to do anything for anyone except walk away. Do not lessen the value of your feelings for someone else YOU OWE THEM NOTHING.

If a person is being nosey... all up in your business without your consent, you have the right to NOT give them any information that you feel is none of their damn business. Protect what you need to protect however small or large. If it feels wrong for them to know don't tell them. Don't be afraid to tell them to MIND THEIR OWN DAMN BUSINESS because in the end.... YOU OWE THEM NOTHING.

If a person keeps wanting things from you be it words or items... it's your right to say no. Regardless of what is said and done, you don't have to give anyone anything you don't want to. Do not let them manipulate your intuitions... YOU OWE THEM NOTHING.

You have to stick up for yourself in this world. People can be cruel and be manipulative. Don't fall for it. It's okay to be NICE ... but there comes a time when nice just doesn't cut it. Please don't be afraid to tell these people that you are STRONG and don't need this kind of behavior in your life.

You are better off without them. All they want is you to bend to their selfish needs. You are worth MORE than that... your feelings, your time, your heart, even your money is worth MORE than what they are doing to you.

Be strong... YOU DON'T OWE ANYONE ANYTHING

TOMBSTONE





SIGN OF THE WEEK...
The Sign of Jericho... Hold it up MAAAAAN!


I have to say... seeing the Undertaker up to his old tricks has me HAPPY.

The women on RAW are NOT as good as the SMACKDOWN women. There I said it.

Mick Foley... Thank you. You are an A Class guy and we thank you for all you do.

Jericho actually has me rooting for him for the first time since he broke into WWE... wow. Think of that MAaaaaaan.

The tag team division on Raw is getting boring. NEED NEW TALENT.

NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPS ON SMACKDOWN... Congrats to the USOS who have been doing some of their BEST work in promos and in ring action that I've EVER seen.

If you don't watch TALKING SMACK you are missing out on one of the BEST shows EVER ... it's short, sweet, and FUN AS HELL.

I actually enjoyed the Miz and Maryse's spoof on Nikki Bella and John Cena.

I got a KICK out of Tyler Breeze as Nikki Bella on Smackdown. However, I feel like Fandango and Tyler Breeze are holding each other back. I enjoy a funny tag team but .... I miss Tyler Breeze. I need Prince Pretty Back. PLEASE!

When will James Elisworth (sp?) go away? Seriously. Either change the gimmick or can the dude.

I am excited to see how far Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will go at Wrestlemania.

I am extremely excited for Seth to come to Raw on Monday and sign that contract for the match with Triple H at Wrestlemania. I want Seth to be SAFE but I know how determined he is... I wouldn't want to be Triple H.

The sex tape/nude photos of Paige and her lovers (one being Brad Maddox and the other kinda looks like Xavier Woods but it's really not CONFIRMED)... seems that the WWE is chosing to just ... ignore it. 

My love, heart, and deep sympathy goes out to our JR (Jim Ross) on the loss of his Angel... his wife. What a tragedy. I am so sorry for him.

Shane McMahon is on FIRE. He really wants a piece of AJ Styles after all that is going on last week... For a non-wrestler, Shane is a wild card who will go to EXTREMES to do his matches. I don't think AJ really understands what he is in store for. 

NXT... It was rather hoo-hum this week. I think it's not in their best interest to put someone experienced over their NXT new talent all the time.... they need to BUILD these people into STARS. How are we supposed to get the NEXT GEN of WWE Superstars if the guys who are experienced ELSEWHERE before coming to NXT always win and the NEW talent that is TRAINED at NXT is always losing. Makes NO FREAKING SENSE.

Stephanie McMahon is wearing some KILLER clothing lately. Love the thigh high boots and black dress on RAW. Damn wish I could raid HER closet sometimes.

There are rumors WWE is wanting to purchase Ring of Honor. Hmmmm.

There are also rumors that the WWE is gonna sign Matt and Jeff Hardy again. I sure do hope so. I'd love the Hardy's to come home, where they BELONG.

That's all my thoughts for now.... We only have a short time before Wrestlemania. Hope you guys are as excited as I am. See ya next time for another TOMBSTONE.

Cookie posed for Erin

Cookie decided to pose for ERIN tonight... Erin got these kick ass pics of our DIVA Boy....





NEW CARTOON MARTHA

So for those of you who follow me know I have been using THIS cartoon version of me ...



But the app I use to design these (BITMOJI) has a different option so I made a NEW avatar...


Just wanted everyone to know that I changed her a little... I think she's cute. 

What do you think?

Wednesday Hodgepodge

http://www.fromthissideofthepond.com/

1. Setting aside the real March Madness (NCAA Basketball) describe something happening at your house this month that might earn the title 'March Madness'? Well during this month Erin and I get SUPER excited because we are less than 13 days from WRESTLEMANIA... this is a tradition every year... so we get kinda even MORE mad about WWE during that time.

2. What's a favorite made up word from your childhood or a favorite from your children's childhood? Does your family still use the word today? If there's a story behind the origin please share. Fudpucker ... My dad (rest his soul) used to call me that to tease me. I don't know where he got the name but he would call me that and me being the little SASSY ass I was... I would put my hands on my hips and say "Daddy don't call me that". I miss you daddy.

3. Will you be doing any spring cleaning now that the season is upon us? I read here a list of 15 quick (under one hour) spring cleaning tasks. They were-

clean out a drawer, vacuum furniture, whiten tile grout, dust the nooks and crannies you don't get to year round, degrease kitchen cabinets, wipe down walls, go behind furniture, wipe down ceiling fans, vacuum the mattress, clean the range hood, wash baseboards, shine the stainless steel, clean out vents, tackle the windows, and wipe down gadgets

Of the fifteen 'quick' tasks listed which two most need doing at your house? Will you do them?

I don't need to do a lot of spring cleaning cause I am not as militant as my Mom's Mom (whom I called Mama Ruby) her floors and all were so clean you could eat off them. I clean but I don't really get that detailed. I do things as they need to be done.

4. A favorite movie set in Paris or New York? American Werewolf in Paris is awesome. Lots of people didn't like it but I did.

5. What's put a spring in your step this month? My friend Amy struck again and bought me a months worth of kitty food so I was super happy about that.

6. Did you ever want to be a teacher? Why or why not? I was a teacher. A music teacher. Sadly, most music programs are being PULLED from schools due to lack of funding or some schools just wanting all the funding to go to athletics instead of music which has been PROVEN to make children SMARTER.

7.  What's your favorite floral scent? Do you have this somewhere in your home or maybe in a perfume? How do you feel about florals in food? How about wines with floral notes-yay or nay? I actually can't get around a lot of smelly stuff because of my asthma and allergies. I seem to be ok when I have a timed sprayer ... and I usually either do a Hawaiian mixture smell or Cherry Blossoms.

8. Insert your own random thought here. My head hurts. Why is it when I put my long hair up even in a loose ponytail I get a freaking headache?

AtoZ Challenge Theme Reveal


http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com

This is my first year doing the AtoZ Challenge and I am super excited to be a part of something that is so much fun. Before anyone says anything... I am NOT doing this to impress anyone or draw anyone to my blog... I want people to read this because they want to not just because it's only part of a blog hop/challenge.

With that said, I will now reveal the theme.

THE THEME FOR 2017 AtoZ CHALLENGE is...

Stories from my past.

Yes. I will be telling stories from my past for the AtoZ Challenge starting on April 1st. Some will be happy, some will be sad, some will probably make SOMEONE SOMEWHERE angry... but these are my stories of past things that I find amusing in my life.


 I hope you will join me for this and comment as you see fit.

Martha's Top 5 - Video Games



Because ERIN aka EKCITYXVII wanted and REQUESTED that I do this
on my blog, I am proud to bring you the series.... MARTHA'S TOP 5. And
he also requested that the first one be VIDEO GAMES.

So... here it is...




5. Warlords 3: DarkLords Rising


I love this game. I was so engrossed in being able to build the 
perfect DARK FORCE to beat out all the other Warlords. So much
fun. Sadly... I have this title but My computer won't run it.



4. Burnout 3: Takedown


I love this game. I had played all the original Burnout games
but when this released it was FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC.
Takedown mode made my day. I love Taking Someone Down.
I love seeing how far my crashes would go... Awesome racing game.




3. Space Invaders 


One of the FIRST games I ever played (next to Donkey Kong
on the Atari). I freaking LOVE Space Invaders. Nothing more
classic than this. I'd play for hours... Dad and I would compete
to see who got the better score... it was usually me. lol. 



2. Skyrim


The hours I put into this game... WOW. I've played this one 3 platforms
(XBox 360, PS3, and XBox One). I adore Skyrim. I love all the Elder
Scrolls games but Skyrim... Skyrim had me fighting Dragons and
Dragon Lords... Daedric Princes... Man this game has it all...
I LOVE SKYRIM. It's the ULTIMATE RPG experience.



1. Super Mario 3


I remember when it was launched... I didn't get it for 
a couple of weeks and finally I had it. Before I got it 
I played it at a sleepover at a friends house and impressed
the fuck out of the "cool kids" with my skills. They actually said
"well Martha, we thought you were strange but you are actually
pretty cool". After I got my copy, I played it so much... it's just
so well put together with mini games that are fun, worlds that 
challenge but keep it entertaining, and so much more.
The Mario Series NEVER fails me... and I love it.

Martha's Thoughts



1. Paige is in more trouble .... seems her nudes and little porno videos have leaked all over the internet. Wonder how WWE will respond to this? When Seth Rollins' dick pics hit a few years back they just pretended it didn't happen and Seth won the WWE Championship shortly after. However, Paige has been on thin ice with WWE for a while. Not to mention these videos feature the EX WWE employee Brad Maddox and what seems to be Xavier Woods aka Austin Creed (I really don't know if that is him but every one thinks it is). I have seen the pics and videos and I can say that I am in no place to JUDGE anyone but DAMN... you gonna film stuff that is PORNO like don't put it on a place like a phone or save it to a cloud for someone to get into later then you regret it. It will be interesting to see what the blow back from this will be.

2. So the kids in my neighborhood are playing outside my house more and more for some reason. I don't want to be the old fuddy duddy that says "HEY YOU KIDS GET THE HELL OFF MY LAWN" but I don't want them to fuck up my stuff either.

3. I am legit scared of the direction Trump is taking this country. That is all I will say about this.

4. Thank you to my friend AMY again for sending me 4 bags of cat food and some little pom-poms for the cats. I love you so much girl and your generosity is APPRECIATED. I couldn't ask for a better friend in this world.

5. I am losing more weight. Things are not fitting as tight and my pants are lose. I am noticing it more and more.

6. Word Chums makes me feel so DAMN smart. I actually forked out the $3.99 for the ad free version. First APP ever purchased by me. I've purchased in game items but never paid for an app till now.

7. I hate when people think I have to wait around and do things according to THEIR schedule. I mean, COME ON. Have some consideration and actual RESPECT my needs too.

8. Writing down all my DVD/BluRay discs to put on the site is very freaking time consuming and frankly my fucking hands hurt. But putting them into a master list will be very useful... when wanting to know what I own and what I want to watch. 

9. Wow... people are saying Mass Effect Andromeda has fucked up graphics. Ouch. That is why I don't buy some titles right on release days. However, I also heard that the company said there will be no graphics fix or update to fix it. WOW. Just.... WOW. 

10. The closer we get to Wrestlemania the more excited I get. 33 Wrestlemanias and I still FEEL this way. Thanks Vince McMahon. I might not agree with some directions certain things go but I am ALWAYS excited for Wrestlemania.

11. Well it is official there is about a 2 inch scar on my right hand. I thought when the kitty scratch healed I wouldn't have a scar but SURPRISE. Looks like I'll have to make a decision on what tattoo to put over it. Bu the time I am done my whole right arm and hand will be covered. Guess I might consider moving to the left?!?!?!

12. Sometimes I amaze myself with the way I find around things.

13.I have decided I will NOT replace my microwave. They are dangerous and I'd rather be safe than sorry.

14. Hey Mom... I know you are somewhere in the universe. I just want you to know... that pollen season SUCKS and so does this changing weather from hot to cold and back again. (Mom and I used to bitch at each other about allergies and getting cold/hot from weather changes).

15. Dig a tunnel dig dig a tunnel...

16. Boo-ping kitty noses makes me smile. 

17. Ok whatever cat or the one dog I have that misses the piddle pad EVERY TIME... why am I bothering buying these if half your boo-boos end up on the floor and not the pad. SERIOUSLY?!?!

18. I love when I accomplish something. It makes me feel SPECIAL. 

19. I am still trying to find which Klondike Bar I like best. *sigh* Takes lots of RESEARCH ya know? LOL.

20. Why is it when I touch cardboard I end up always with a huge cut? It hurts like hell too. Worse than when I cut with a knife. Why do paper/cardboard cuts hurt worse than other things?

Saturday 9




Saturday 9: Along Again, Naturally (1971)

Not familiar with this week's song? Hear it here.


1. Friday was St. Patrick's Day, March 17th! Did you celebrate with green beer or a green milkshake? Nope I didn't.

2. Did you remember to wear green? Nope. I didn't go anywhere anyway.

3.  What color do you look best in? BLACK

4. This week's featured artist, Gilbert O'Sullivan, was born in Waterford, Ireland. Waterford is famous for Waterford Crystal. Do you have glassware that you save for special occasions? Nope all that got left behind in moves sadly.

5. This week's featured song includes the line, "To think that only yesterday I was cheerful, bright and gay." How were you feeling yesterday? Tired. Worn out.

6. It begins with reference to a wedding that didn't quite come off because the bride left the groom at the altar. When were you most recently at church? Was it for a holiday service, a regularly scheduled service, a special event (a wedding or baptism)? I haven't been to a church for a religious service since 1999 and the last time I was sitting in an actual church was for my ex's friends wedding which was a brief 10 minutes of WASTED time.

7. In 1971, when this song was popular, Malibu Barbie was a big seller for Mattel. This doll had a perpetual tan. For a human to achieve this, a tanning bed or self tanner is usually required. Have you used either method to give yourself a tan? I did tanning beds a couple of times when I was younger but my insides felt funny so I stopped. Mom used to buy self tan that you apply from a creme and we did that. Usually though, I don't care to have a tan because I am naturally pale ... so when I go swimming in the summer I burn not tan.

8. In March, 1971, James Taylor appeared on the cover of TIME magazine. What's your favorite James Taylor song? Rainy Day Man ... I used to love this one for some strange reason.

9. Random Question: What word or phrase do you hear yourself saying too often? I say "Fuck" a lot but that is just because someone once told me not to say it all the time then it became a staple in my speech. I quote a lot of movies and things I hear on WWE all the time though.

1. The oldest item in my home is probably my grandparents birth certificates.
2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is a jar of cherries
3. My family heritage is part German (Mom's Side) and Native American Creek/Cherokee (Dad's Side)
4. My favourite family tradition is .... I no longer have "family traditions" because I no longer have my family. Mom and Dad both passed in 2013 and the rest of my family abandoned me so I am alone ... but Erin and I make our own new traditions... nothing in concrete yet though... lol.

Martha's Thoughts



1. Kids have started playing near my house lately... hmmm. Wonder if I should like buy a ball or something and just go out there and play? 

2. I lost weight. I can fit into my Mom's pajama bottoms. Yea, I saved some of Mom's Favorite clothes that I just WANTED... and the pink pj bottoms with cats on them... sentimental. I was SHOCKED when I could put them on because... well... look at me... and then look at Mom.
This was taken in 2012 right after my heart attack... I weighed around 250 then...


Mom was a little thing because she was ALWAYS active ... she worked in flowers and plants. Of course, we didn't know then she had cancer but she had gotten small WAY WAY before that. She went from 200+ to 120lbs. Mom was a phenom. Truly. Now I can fit in HER pants. I cried. She'd be so damn proud of me. I'm doing it Mom... your girl is doing it.

3. I can't believe the BS that is going down on WWE. I am not thrilled Roman Reigns will face Undertaker at Wrestlemania... but what can I do. I was thrilled that the deadman decided to start his mind games Monday on Raw. hehehe... get 'em Taker.

4. My kitties are snuggling with me more and more. I don't know WHY... but I welcome all this love. Even Khan and Poe are getting closer to me. Cookie and Finn dominate the area around me cause they are HUGE but Bama is so small she just fits snuggled up beside me on the arm of the couch. I truly am BLESSED to have such love and affection.

5. So I have been doing more around the house... hanging up curtains and hammering.... lifting things I probably shouldn't lift because I have a stent in my heart (docs say I shouldn't lift over 15lbs). But I am doing little things and it makes me feel SO accomplished. 

6. The microwave is possessed so I killed it. It came on the other night and I heard it (I hear EVERYTHING because I learned it from Dad ... being the Vietnam Vet he was and could wake up at a pin drop, I learned to listen even in sleep from him). I heard the damn thing come on... then I heard what sounded like sparks and grinding. I jumped up and unplugged the son of a bitch... cussing the ENTIRE time because this microwave wasn't THAT old (maybe 2 or 3 years at the most) ... so I re-plugged it in and it is GONE. REST IN PEACE MICROWAVE. Thank you for the good baked potatoes and for warming up things... oh, and all the popcorn. I don't know if I want another microwave... It freaks me out that this happened and I thought 'what if I hadn't heard it? the house could have caught fire'. Erin says I saved us all. YAY FOR HERO MARTHA!

7. If I don't get a NEW microwave I'll be using the OVEN a lot more which is a pain in the boohiney but doable. I do want my own AIR POPPER for Popcorn though... so I am putting it on my wishlist since I be poor.

8. I swear Breath of the Wild is HUMONGOUS. I never thought Legend of Zelda would be SO open world because the first one was so small... well, it was to me. But BOTW is just... awesome. 

9. People have made me doubt myself lately. I don't like that feeling at all. I am who I am. I don't really care if anyone likes me or not... All I've ever done is jump through hoops trying to please everyone else. For 13 years I was a slave to a man who could care less what I wanted, thought, needed, or what was good for me. I have lived trying to impress my family only to have them abandon me. I am TIRED of catering to EVERYONE ELSE'S expectations of me. From now on... the only one's expectations of me I give a damn about are MY OWN!

10. I was thinking about putting my music up... but then again... I get very scared of sharing it due to people being CRUEL just for the sake of being cruel. I love my music... and I just couldn't take someone tearing it down in any way.

11. Erin's Birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIN! I got him a movie (Justice League Dark) and some Cupcakes to celebrate... also Breath of the Wild was part of his b-day and so were the 8bit Link and Gold Mario for our collection. YAY. Happy Birthday darlin'. Thanks for being YOU and being there for me. Thanks for keeping me on my toes. XOXOXO

Saturday 9: Fist City


http://samanthasaturday9.blogspot.com/

Unfamiliar with the song? Hear it here.

1) This song is about a wife warning another woman off her man. Who received the last warning, of any type, that you issued? a neighbor. I warned her if she ever wanted to run her mouth and spread lies about me again that we'd have a REAL problem.

2) Loretta sings that when her husband picks up trash, he puts it in a garbage can. She's being metaphorical, but we will be literal: If you spot litter on the sidewalk, do you pick it up or just walk on? Depends ... if it's gross looking I will skip otherwise I do sometimes pick it up if I have time.

3) She taught herself to play guitar. If you could learn something new in 2017, what would it be? I think I would learn to crochet but I just don't have the resources or time.

4) She broke her shoulder in a fall and surgery was required to repair it. When were you last in a hospital? Were you a patient or a visitor? November of last year when Erin lost his other leg. I visited him as often as I could.

5) In the 1970s, Loretta Lynn was the first country singer to appear on the cover of Newsweek. Who is your favorite country singer? Garth Brooks

6) Rowan and Martin's Laugh In premiered in 1968, when this song was popular. What's the last TV show you watched? Did you watch it live, did you stream it, or catch it on DVR/Tivo? I don't watch TV. I get Hulu and WWE Network so I watch my shows when I can and they are all streamed.

7) In 1968, Jacqueline Kennedy shocked the world by marrying Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis.What's the last thing you heard that surprised you? Honestly nothing surprises me much anymore but the last REAL shocker for me was Chyna's death.

8) 1968's top-rated car was the Chevy Corvette. Could your car benefit from a trip to the car wash this morning? Yea it would... my poor little Nissan Versa has pollen all over it.
  
9) Random question: You're staying in a hotel and find you can faintly hear the couple in the next room. Would you ignore their voices, or try to hear them better? I would ignore them. That's what headphones are made for.

1. I hope LUCIFER gets renewed for another season. It is one of the better TV Shows on air.  
2. My first crush was a boy who I didn't even know. I saw him from time to time at a grocery store with his parents.
3 Talk of politics and religion usually makes me uncomfortable. Some people get overly defensive and just want to shove their own beliefs down my throat when the beauty of the world we live in is being able to think for yourself and chose what you believe in.
4. If I were a super-hero, I would be like Wonder Woman (strong) but also I'd love to have the ability to shape shift and read minds.

Real Talk: When Mama's Boy goes TOO far


I wanted to address something I haven't talked about at all.

I dated quite a few men who have "MOMMY" issues.

What I mean when I say "MOMMY" issues is that they have to get their Mama's permission to wipe their own asses. In other words, everything or anything they do the guys will talk with their mom to get permission or before making a decision rendering themselves looking stupid because they can't for ONE moment make an adult decision for themselves. 

I won't mention names here because I do not want to bring drama or un-needed attention to any of the ex-boyfriends who are guilty of this. But I do want to give you a couple of examples of what a woman SHOULD avoid.

I have no problem saying my 1st husband was like this. He would call his mother for every single thing which, when you are married, is annoying as fuck. 

A guy I dated when I moved to Mobile called his mom to tell her he had sex. WHAT THE FUCK?

Another guy REFUSED to spend time with me because his mother said "she's a bad influence".

Another guy called his mom all the time asking her if it was ok if he did this and that.


Seriously, ladies ... I am all for a man loving his mom. I think it's a great and beautiful thing. But there is such a thing as a man needing to pop the titty out of his mouth and be a MAN about things.

Being an adult is about learning and doing things ON YOUR OWN. When you call your mom to get permission to leave your own house, buy something, or tell her you had sex is a COMPLETE TURN OFF and shows you are not man/mature enough to handle an ADULT relationship with commitment and decision making.


Ladies, you deserve better than this. I am glad I recognized the men that are now my exes for what they were and didn't make many terrible mistakes with them. Word of advice though, if he can't pop that titty out of his mouth... you shouldn't even give him the time of day.



In Other Words, blarney…


https://patriciasplace.me/


blarney
noun; flattering talk; deceptive nonsense;
talk that is not true but funny; talk used to trick you

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word blarney


As a child she would butter people up with her words.
Manipulative, her words were used to her benefit.
Some saw her as good, others knew she was a snake in the grass.
She walked around with a smile on her face and blarney on her tongue.

1. What is one area of your life where you're a perfectionist? Is that a good thing? I don't think I am a perfectionist with anything I do. I embrace every little awkward, clumsy, fucked up thing I do.

2. What's something you find perfectly ridiculous? Honestly, The Kardashians. Why are they popular?

3. What's a skill you've developed by way of that old fashioned saying, 'practice makes perfect? Music... I always am doing something music related.

4. What's your idea of a perfect breakfast? Waffle or Pancakes, 3 Hard Fried Eggs, Grits, Bacon, Glass of Milk, and a glass of Orange Juice (no pulp)

5. What's a trip, holiday, vacation, or day outing you've taken that you'd rate a perfect 10? Tell us why. Honestly, I haven't taken a trip, holiday, or vacation in SO long. But the outing I did last year to Dauphin Island and Chickasabouge was a 10 out of 10... because I love being near the water.

6. What quote or saying perfectly sums up your life right now? If you can't do perfect, how about one that comes close? "what other people think of me is none of my business" thanks to RuPaul I live by that most of the time.

7. How would you spend $300 today? Get a couple of Amiibos, A couple of Movies on DVD/Blu-Ray, and go out to eat. The rest left over put towards BILLS.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I swallowed a fly. Ewwwww.

Martha's Fastlane Wrap-up & Review



Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa 
vs. 
The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar 
(Kickoff Match)

Martha's Prediction: Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar
Well I started off on the wrong foot... what can I say? 
I wasn't paying much attention honestly... this was a 
rather boring kick off match.

RATING: 3/5

Sami Zayn 
vs. 
Samoa Joe

Martha's Prediction: Samoa Joe
I knew this would be the outcome.
Samoa Joe is only enforcing the "DESTROYER"
persona right now and he wasn't about to lose at his 
FIRST PPV as such. Poor Sami.

Rating: 3/5

Raw Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson 
vs. 
Enzo Amore & Big Cass

Martha's Prediction: Enzo & Cass
Well damn, I wanted Zo and Cass to pull this off.
It was an ok match but honestly... I am bored by the Club...
and if they keep on, I will be bored of Cass & Zo too.

Rating: 3/5


Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax

Martha's Prediction: Sasha Banks
Got that one right. Glad to see the boss 
gain some momentum going into Wrestlemania.
The match was ok not great but decent.

Rating: 3/5
SURPRISE MATCH

CESARO VS JINDER MAHAL

ok so this wasn't announced and I was sitting there
like WTF WWE? It made no sense honestly.

Winner was Cesaro but damn this was kinda thrown in last minute
 like a bad Raw Episode in the middle of a PPV.

Rating: 3/5

SURPRISE MATCH

THE BIG SHOW VS RUSEV

Another thrown in match last minute... I was really impressed
with how well Big Show did and glad he got the win over Rusev.

RATING: 4/5

Cruiserweight Champion Neville 
vs. 
Jack Gallagher


Martha's Prediction: Jack Gallagher
Bullocks. I lost this one too. 
OH WELL. It was a decent match...
I might not like the outcome but DAMN... Jack
sure does love those head butts.

Rating: 4/5

Roman Reigns 
vs. 
Braun Strowman

Martha's Prediction: Braun Strowman
Well I didn't see that coming. 
Damn.
Kinda wanted to see Braun squish Roman one last time.
Bummer.
However, This was a good match and I loved it.

Rating: 4/5

Raw Women’s Champion Bayley 
vs. 
Charlotte Flair

Martha's Prediction: Bayley
Glad they are letting Bayley keep the title instead
of it constantly changing hands this close to Wrestlemania.
However, this match was slow and Charlotte bored me.

Rating: 3/5

Universal Champion Kevin Owens 
vs. 
Goldberg






Martha's Prediction: GOLDBERG
HA! I called it. Yep. I was right.
Jericho's music hit...
Bell Rang.
One Spear
One Jackhammer
Now... A NEW UNIVERSAL CHAMPION.
Which means Goldberg vs Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Rating: 5/5 for the best 22 seconds I ever witnessed.




FASTLANE OVERALL RATING:
3/5
a decent PPV 
but there were some hiccups.

SEE YOU ALL 
FOR WRESTLEMANIA 33!!!!
