Luchador Masks and Kijiji Ads

Let me preface this entry by saying that I just finished working out to Insanity for the second time since New Year’s Eve and I can barely move right now. If I’m found in a catatonic state, please, tell my family I love them. That being said, as the good Doctor would say, “Allons-y!”

Yesterday was a productive and fun day. I went through my morning work routine, and then took some time to hang out with friends and comedians, Matt Davis and my roommate Josh Williams (@MattDavis and @JoshComedy). We watched the first episode of Breaking Bad and made horrible comments that most people would be offended by. However, comedians have much the same sense of humour as a doctor, police officer, firefighter, paramedics, etc., and why? Because emergency teams have seen it all, so they’ll naturally need something a little stronger than a knock-knock joke to laugh. Comedians have heard every joke under the sun about every topic imaginable.

I’m in the process of moving in with my girlfriend, so while at my apartment, I took the time to find some things I needed, and some things I didn’t need. As Matt Davis was watching Breaking Bad, I came out of my room wearing a black, pleather, Rey Mysterio luchador mask and casually said, “Has anybody seen my other winter glove?” To which Matt replied, “That is probably the best ‘come out of a room with something odd’ I may have ever seen.”

I took off the mask and threw it to Matt. His eyes lit up with excitement to don, as he called it, “fetish mask with a cross on it.” I went back in my room while Matt tried on the mask. I came back out wearing yet another luchador mask. I have no idea with wrestler wore this mask, but it’s pretty amazing. It’s a black, white and red mask, with white spikes on the top in a Mohawk, tassels hang off the back resembling hair, and the mouth is covered and replaced with a sinister grin. I plan on wearing it as a ski mask. Matt and I nearly walked into a convenience store wearing luchador masks. Keep in mind, it’s still the middle of a cold snap, and they’re surprisingly warm! My mask alone would cause nightmares. Matt probably has a picture of it on his Facebook or Twitter page if you’re looking for one. I think with all these new styles of toques coming out in Canada, (characters, animals, etc.,) somebody is missing out on a goldmine with thermal luchador masks. Plus, when Mexican wrestlers work in Canada, they can stay warm AND pull off a Springboard Dragon Rana Suicida. Obviously you want to be warm if you’re going to be attempting that one! Am I right?!

I also put up a Kijiji classified ad to sell my dresser. I need a new one. It’s an Ikea Hemnes 6-Drawer Dresser. It’s in great shape, just not big enough. Classified ads are always boring, so I had some fun writing mine. Here’s the ad:

Black-Brown Ikea Hemnes 6 Drawer dresser. Goes for $285 brand new. This one is also brand new, but it’s already put together. It’s a Christmas miracle! Asking $225 firm. Not a scratch on it. Notice I used actual pictures and not pictures from the website. Why do people do that? I followed the instructions and everything. Three grueling hours of my life, gone. I did that for YOU. Think of the fights that putting these things together can cause! I might have just saved your marriage, because this thing ended mine. You’re welcome!

I think some people are scared and don’t realize it’s a joke because I’ve had 185 views and only three emails in less than a day. I need a bigger dresser because I plan on buying way more luchador masks after yesterday. Happy Saturday!
