Scent Back In Time

Something quite peculiar triggered a memory yesterday evening.

I ran out of shower gel, so went into the bag full of toiletries to get out a new one ready for this morning. I hadn't tried it before so opened the top to take a smell.

And then 1997 flashed back to me.

For some reason, the scent reminded me of a deodorant I used to have in the locker of my first proper job. I cannot recall the name of the spray (it was cheap stuff from Superdrug!), but it definitely wasn't made by the company that produces this shower gel from my stash. 

It was very, very random. A scent I hadn't encountered since all the way back then.

Made me think back to may colleagues I haven't seen or been in touch with since back then. It made me wonder what they're up to nowadays.

Even this morning's shower had me thinking back to those days. This is going to be a funny few days to weeks as I finish off this bottle!

Predicting The TNF Winner: Week 14 2019

I've just put the stats into my spreadsheet to find out a winner out of tonight's NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears.

It has the Cowboys winning the game by three and the total amount of points to be forty-one.

The bookmakers' line is Dallas -3, so that means it's a no play on the pointspread. With forty-one being the predicted total, it means it's a play on the under as the line is 43.5.

Recommended Play:
UNDER 43.5

Once again, I very rarely wager on TNF games. This is just an experiment ahead of this weekend's games.

Another loss in last weekend's NFL means I am now at 8-5 for the season.

It looks like I might miss the league's playoffs as I need a lot of things to work in my favour to get back to the top, or near it, of my division.

Cannot believe I was at 7-0 before it all came crashing down!!

Christmas Film Tease

I'm in the process of doing the annual Christmas film marathon and have to say this..

I've watched a film that's twenty-five years old. Had never heard of it until yesterday and it stars an array of people.

Without giving too much away, one of the stars in it is in one of their earliest roles. Comparing him to the character I know him best as to who he plays in this film is quite the contrast.

That's all I'm saying until December 25th.

Papa John's Festive Pizza

Check out this new pizza that Papa John's has brought out for the Christmas period.

Papa John's Festive Pizza From 2019

It's called the 'Festive Pizza' and here's what it consists of:

Red wine gravy base topped with turkey meatballs, signature mozzarella, brussel sprouts, carrots and parsnips finished with a cranberry drizzle.

I was interested until the word 'parsnip' came up.

It's a no from me!

My Week 13 Fantasy Team

Here's the team I've entered into the £9 Fantasy football contest for this weekend's NFL games.

A Winning Team

As has been the case for all of the 2019 NFL season, tomorrow's post will contain the fantasy team I will enter for the evening NFL games.

Before I get to that, however, I have to share an experience I had with a team I created for Thursday night's games.

Seeing as it was Thanksgiving Thursday, with three NFL games taking place, I thought I would enter a few games. It turned out to be a wise last minute decision as I ended up making profit.

I won £2 from a free comp, £6 from a £2 entry and then had £25 from the £9 contest.

That's £22 profit.

Here's the team I entered in all three comps.
