So how does it feel to know I've lined up your replacement, dear? ;-)

We've had a couple of conversations over the last couple of days that I have to say, he walked right into!

First one was when we were watching the replay of RAW last night - I can't remember the context, but the conversation came around to the Slammys last year, and Kane and Kelly Kelly presenting the award for Best Couple.  And Kane's best line of the show - "Last time I was in a relationship, I Tombstoned a priest".

Hubby said something like, "Imagine having someone like Kane stalking you".

So I did.  And gave him a huge grin and said I wasn't seeing a downside - bring it on!  He said "No, not Kane - just someone like Kane."

I told him I'd heard what I wanted to hear.  Which cracked him up.

Then later, we were watching TV and I was looking through the guide for the Brisbane Ekka - which is like a huge State Fair here starting today, a big agricultural show.  And I love it - I'm a member of the Show Association just so I can get a free member's pass to go every day (it runs for like ten days).  I happily tramp all over the place and look at cows and sheep, watch woodchopping competitions and shearing displays, peruse prize winning vegetables and decorated cakes, ooh and aah over baby animals in the nursery, see the dog show . . . well, you get the idea!

This year, they're trucking in 100 pregnant ewes for a special display in the animal nursery, because they're all due to give birth over the next few weeks, so there's a good possibility that one day, I'll get to see lambs being born!  I'm so excited about that, even more than I was last time we went, when I got to milk a cow!  Before you say anything, yes, I am a country girl.  Was born and raised in town, but it's just a big ol' country town in the middle of farm country.

Anyway, part of the attraction at State Fairs are the show bags - back when I was a kid, they were called sample bags, because they really did contain samples of candies and stuff, but nowadays it's really more just a bag full of everyday candies or toys.  And they always have a WWE one!  This year, it's got a backpack, bar/gym towel, sweatband, bandana, coasters and a coffee mug!  I'mma get one!

Right next to the little advert to the WWE bag was one for Family Guy, which features a blow up Stewie doll. 

So I said to hubby, "Why can't I get a blow up Undertaker in my WWE show bag?"

He looked at me with this long-suffering expression (because by this time, I had been squeeing on for, oh, about thirty minutes about all the cool stuff I wanted to see and buy) and said, "He's seven feet tall" - implying of course that it would be quite a job to inflate something that size, as opposed to a blow up of a character who's a baby.

I couldn't help myself.  Grinned at him and said, "I guess saying I'd blow him wouldn't sound very good, huh?"

He nearly died laughing, pointing to our cat with an outraged expression.  "There's a cat in the room!  You can't say that in front of him, look at him, he's traumatised now!"

For the record, he didn't look all that traumatised to me. ;-)

Then he shook his head and said, "You wouldn't want to do that - remember, he's been with McCool."

We'd already had a snarky conversation about how McFool's out injured again - he's scathing about her lack of ability, and was vastly amused when I said it just goes to prove you can't learn to wrestle by sleeping with a wrestler.

I told him I'd happily scrub 'Taker down and get the "blonde germs" off him, no worries!

Guess he's gonna be real impressed when I visit one of the t-shirt stalls at the Ekka with the sole purpose of getting me a 'Taker shirt.  Maybe even a Kane one too!  Oh, and a John Cena one!  Jeff Hardy too! 

Bet he's regretting the fact that he was the one who introduced me to wrestling not long after we got married! XD
