And Hospitality is go tonight. Nice one
really tricky, tiny blighters meilleur prix viagra. Will have a go at wasps instead today.
Rey Mysterio – MVP
That was just a fantastic performance by Rey, wrestling the whole of his Elimination Chamber match, being the highlight reel for the match, taking some crazy bumps. What is more, is that I really felt his MMA-style kicks added something to convincing that despite his lack of size, he was causing damage to much bigger wrestlers. This is always a problem with Rey against heavyweight wrestlers, so it was good to see him addressing that.
Mixing things up
Starting with the Smackdown elimination chamber? What was going on? Goodness, that’s what. Obviously given what happened with Edge, it was mainly planned to allow that to happen. It really shook things up as well though, gave the show a very different feel. They also got a fantastic reaction from the crowd from it.
It was just a shame though they couldn’t keep that going all the way through. You could hear how dead the crowd got during the ECW title match (should have had Christian instead), and the Shawn Michaels – JBL match (should have had anyone other than JBL) didn’t ever seem to come alive either. Improve those matches, and a better stunt during the Orton – McMahon match, and you could have had a classic PPV all round. As it was, there was plenty of goodness in the two Elimination Chamber matches to go round. I’m not normally a fan of these, I prefer Hell in a Cell, but these were two rather good installments.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger as 8-bit music. Few things I could enjoy more than this.
Have had a little fun tonight following @StephenFry on Twitter. Following this tweet:
Ok. This is now mad. I am stuck in a lift on the 26th floor of Centre Point. Hell’s teeth. We could be here for hours. Arse, poo and widdle

he posted a picture of his predicament to Twitpic:
There then followed a deluge of tweets with the hashtag of #frylift, and even some cash-in merchandise:
Okay that was me. My favourite was from Father Ted co-creator Graham Lineham who called for help:
Help! I’m stuck halfway up the stairs!

and also provided a photo:
Happily both Stephen and Graham were rescued and are now safe. This should say something about Twitter, given the numbers of posts and views involved, but I think more than anything it says it is a load of wonderful silly nonsense at times.
This year’s Oxford Literary Festival lasts a little longer than in previous years, and there are some good speakers to look forward to. My personal highlight will be an appearance by Bad Science‘s Ben Goldacre on Sunday 5th April at the McKenna room. Also appearing of note are Ian McEwan, Aravind Adiga and Raymond Blanc, and many others.
For more information see the Oxford Literary Festival site.
