Ebullient reached 50+ pages. Let's start anew with whatever is making you happy/relaxed/joyful/non-angry. :)

I'm still in an extremely good mood from GenCon.

Back home after a long (though admittedly fun) vacation and the dog is overjoyed to see us. Will not let us out of her sight. (We're pretty damn excited to see her too. ;) )

Holy crap, liver is delicious. I must've been right about being low on iron, usually it falls squarely in the "meh" region of food. Must take care not to overdose on Vitamin A, though...

This qualifies as awesome because I have a log of Braunschweiger now, which is an amazing lunchmeat/sandwich spread if you like liver.

I found vids of my Taiko performance.

Oroshi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yl8YoGAzj0) (not my favorite song-I cringe whenever I watch this video) Whatever. I'm just happy the run (the ending part of the song) didn't turn out too badly. Our previous practices before the performance had been horrendous. Our teachers were so impressed with us afterwards. They said they'd never seen such a good Oroshi before. That made me happeh.
Hahaha! Aaaaaand I just found the 08 video of Oroshi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQjz9COdXpA). They weren't too bad considering there were a ton of people playing. Even so, they were going in a straight line. That makes it easier when it's time to do the run.
Whatever.

I think we all did well doing that stinkin' song. It's scary as balls up there on stage. I'm just happy that we all remembered what we were supposed to do. 

Here's the video ofSuwatte.  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNIFEVB7NEQ) This is one of my FAVORITE songs (along with Fushu, which I'm currently learning). I was so excited when my teachers let me play suwatte style with the intermediate group. I'm the one on the far left.  :D   

Playing up there was soooo much fun. I can't wait for Hatsume!

I was under the impression you'd only have to watch it when eating polar bear liver or something analogous..
Title: Re: Happy Happy Joy Joy!
Post by: Bauglir on August 20, 2009, 07:19:43 PM
Well, the maximum recommended amount is a bit under 4 times the maximum recommended amount, and beef liver has 400% the recommended daily value in each serving. Even that's not enough to do anything, unless you eat it frequently, which I plan to do. So basically you only have to worry about it with specific species' livers, or if you're eating lots of liver frequently.

I finally got to run a game yesterday for the first time in about two years.

It was a fairly simple session.  The two players still had some finalizing to do on their PCs (I'm attempting this game with a massive set of house rules), but it didn't take too long.  Still, they got the lay of the land of the city they're in, they met a few people that can help provide plot hooks, did some roleplaying, and kicked in some gang member's heads.  The first attack roll the first player rolled was even a crit.  Fun times by all.

I really forgot how much I missed this!

Horrible as I am this remembers me of a story a friend told me about.

Someone he knew was out driving, also managing to drive over a cat. As he stepped out of the car to find it he saw it in the grass, also noticing it was not dead. After the painful procedure of strangling the cat (yes, he did just that) he goes to the house that the cat ran out from, realising it was where it used to live. The family is sad, of course, but realises it was an accident and forgives him. As he drives off to work (he was heading there from the beginning) nothing happens. But during lunch a guy at his work shows up and says "Hey ****, did you know there is a dead cat stuck in the front of your car?". As the realisation strikes him he drives back and how to explain to the family how he had managed to road-kill the first cat and strangled their other.

Sad as it is, when he told me this story all of us had to fight to hold back the tears from laughing. Also, two or three other "fun" stories of cats that had been run over was told during the evening.

One of the other stories involved a guy actually finding the right kitty, but he did not manage to strangle it since it was strong enough to fight back. So using the only tool he could find in his car he ended its misery, the thing is, it was a sledgehammer. As a result of the ... act ... he was covered in cat blood and was going to walk up to the house that this cat ran out from. But as he stands there, covered in the evidence of his act, cat in one hand, sledgehammer in his other, who comes driving along the road if not *dramatic pause* his mother in law.

After this story I think I actually started crying from laughter

I remember that one of my high school teachers, back when HE was in high school, was apparently going to pick up his girlfriend for something. On the way, he ran over a cat, and noticed the tag said "Fluffy". Anyway, he continued to his girlfriend's house, and was invited to stay for dinner, so to make small talk he explained why he was late (running over this random cat). He'd just finished relating how he'd remarked, upon reading the cat's name tag, "Well you aren't so Fluffy now!" before noticing that the family was between horrified and crying. At which point he realized it was their cat.

My teachers from Taiko want to train me to be on the performance team. I'm elated, but at the same time, this news is pretty bittersweet.
They basically want to set up a meeting with me and talk to me about what all this entails... my heart's racing right now. I almost cried when I got the voice message on my phone. I've never been considered good at ANYTHING before, and this is seriously a dream come true. Ever since I first saw Fushu Daiko play, I've wanted to get up on stage and play too! And now I have the opportunity to do it, and it scares me.
 
My issue is that I have to put school first, and my hobbies second...
I just hope I can both get my schoolwork done (to the level of completion I need to excel) AND train 4+ days a week for performance team. I'm really crossing my fingers on this one. Something tells me it might not work out...

But still, I'm honored to have been selected for this. I never thought my hard work would get me anywhere.

Sidenote: I can't believe I'm doing this since I've already got a very busy schedule...it just got 10 times busier.

The 'inventory discrepancy' at work has increased to 1.6 million with the latest count.  And I am one of the very few who isn't a suspect at all due to my reputation for blunt honesty (i.e. i'm a sarcastic bastard).   :lol

I might not be able to keep them alive long enough.  They're talking about experimenting with formaldehyde or pcp in their weed.  One does coke and adderal to work two jobs, and lithium to come back down so he can sleep.  We've been trying to tell him it's a bad idea but he won't listen.

it's generally a bad thing when other drug addicts look at you and go "Duuude you are waay out of line.  You need to put that shit down."

Indeed.  When I saw them at Paganfest '08, they were pretty good.  Although when they were setting up, some dude in the audience beside me said "Wait, are those LARP swords?  That's lame".  I turned to him and said "You lose points for knowing what LARP means".  Him and his three buddies almost knocked me right out of the pit during their first song.  It seems if encounter enough force to knock me out of a pit, I'm pretty much going to have trouble stopping, and ended up bulling about 5-6 meters through the crowd before I was stopped.  Then I knocked the crap out of them.  Good times, I'd do it again.

Scheduled to take it next week to see how much I may have improved since the last. I need to run 8 laps or more to be considered good rather than regular.

I figure I can pull it off, though it will more likely than not exhaust me.

In my highschool, we had the 6-lap run (standard 400m track).  Everyone had to do it, and your grade was determined by your time.

Not particularly harsh. Test results are based off factors such as age and current weight, so assuming I pull it off it means my cardiorespiratory resistance is above the average for someone with my body type.

You did mention that your body density is greater than normal, so it's no surprise. Your body isn't built for speed, it's built for strength. So given enough training you'll be able to lift weights I can only dream of.

2. I actually do have a lot of the useful stuff I often find myself complaining about not having (white-out, adhesive tape etc.).

Beer doesn't taste like alcohol.

Yes it does, I can taste alcohol in everything above 2,5% and I do not like the bitter taste of beer anyway. To be honest, beer (all brands) only taste like bitter water with alcohol in it too me, in short, disgusting. The only thing beer can be used for is as a spice in a stew somewhat common in Sweden (do not know about the rest of the world) when you boil some thin-sliced beef, potato, onion,bay laurel leaves and some black pepper in a darker beer (like Hobgoblin). Otherwise I guess I could use it to clean engines with it if I was out of everything else

I use beer in cooking fairly frequently (I mostly use wine though, beer leads to a much heavier flavor, and I prefer making lighter things), but I too can't stand it.  Well, I'm sure there might somewhere exist one that tastes good to me, but I'll never find it, as on principle I don't drink (and yes, I'm of age so it's not just the legality, and no, it's not a religion thing).  Wine is also pretty disgusting to me, and as I said, I use it in cooking a lot, especially since I make white sauces frequently.

I'm not familiar wish that dish specifically, but that's the sort of thing I'd use beer for.

I don't drink for three reasons: one, I'm picky about how things taste, two, I hate the feeling of alcohol burning down my throat, and three, I'm naturally crazy so I don't need it.

I get these awesome rashes from booze of any degree, so the only time I'd have any is if it came in food awesome enough to ignore a day's itching. Fair price to pay.

I drink for three reasons: one, I'm picky about how things taste, tow, I enjoy the feeling of alcohol burning down my throat, and three, I'm naturally crazy so alcohol just amplifies it!  ;)

Mostly I just like the taste and buzz from a moderate amount of drinking.

I went from "Oh my god, please, please, make it stop"-headache a few hours ago to "successfully updating my browser without any loss of data, discarding 5-year-old artifacts of earlier versions by doing a manual migration of settings". So much faster. So much stabler. Life just became a little better. I probably should do a backup at once, in case I mess up somewhere along the way, but... that'd be stretching my enthusiasm.

I use beer in cooking fairly frequently (I mostly use wine though, beer leads to a much heavier flavor, and I prefer making lighter things), but I too can't stand it.  Well, I'm sure there might somewhere exist one that tastes good to me, but I'll never find it, as on principle I don't drink (and yes, I'm of age so it's not just the legality, and no, it's not a religion thing).  Wine is also pretty disgusting to me, and as I said, I use it in cooking a lot, especially since I make white sauces frequently.

I'm not familiar wish that dish specifically, but that's the sort of thing I'd use beer for.

I got to help my friend out by clipping his birds wings for him. Ok, that wasn't the fun part. But it's fun helping people out and teaching them how to take better care of their birdies. And I think that if I give him some books on bird behavior and proper care, etc, those two birdies will have very happy lives. They're such sweeties too. They're both female cockatiels. One's pretty nice and loves her owner, the other has had very little contact with people and is absolutely terrified when you come near her.

With a little bit of time and effort, they'll turn into sweet or at least polite ladies.

But they're both just sooo cute! I couldn't help but baby talk to them. I like birds.  :embarrassed

Honestly, I'm just happy because I've finally met another person who's willing to work with their birds and improve their lives. So often people just throw them in a cage with little or no stimulation or nutrition and let them gradually and painfully go insane.  So I'm happy that he's a really nice daddy to his baby birds.  :D

I just came up with a brilliant idea: We should pay people to complain for us!

I mean, the only reason nothing's going as we want it is because we don't want to put that much effort into complaining, campaigning, etc.

So I thought, we need something like a lawyer. Or, rather, lobbyists, like big business has. Someone to represent us to the governments. And at that last thought, I actually got hold of what I was thinking, and wept.

Yay! My back pain is slowly going away. I had a super bad muscle spasm that started in my shoulder and spread (really quickly) to the rest of my back and neck. I had like, one giant knot. I couldn't turn my neck or anything. This is day 2 of pain, but the muscles are slowly relaxing a little and I can move more without wincing every second. Yay!

Also, I'm getting my doggy a Halloween collar (it has candy corn on it and other things that will make him look festive). The best part: I originally wasn't going to get it since it would've cost me 30 bucks (including shipping), but the website emailed me after I clicked out and 1) saved the item I was getting in my cart and 2) gave me a discount so that I'd make my purchase.

I'm looking forward to National Novel Writing Month (http://www.nanowrimo.org/). After my third failure last year, I decided that I was going to spend 2009 honing my "writer's endurance" so that I could actually succeed this year. In trial-runs, I've managed to get decent word counts with minimal effort. If I don't focus on a narrative, I can easily make 50,000 words in two weeks. If I focus on creating a single, continuous narrative, I estimate *at worst* it'll take me twice as long to achieve that word count, which is the actual length of the challenge.

So, I'm getting pumped. It's like preparing for a marathon or something. I'm feeling good about it. I can't wait!  :sparta

Our dog River is completely healed!

...she had an ear infection which we were treating her for, then got bit by another dog a few days later. The fur around where the bite wounds were will take a little longer to grow back in, but she's fine and that's what counts.

Oh dear. How expensive is the hotel? I made some bad experiences in Paris two weeks ago. Basically, if it's not expensive it's probably a shithole.

Hotel? I am hoping to spend my time at Llochlyn's place. And I don't even mind shitholes, I wouldn't stay at the room too long anyway. If I get this done it means I've done England, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark, France and Finland this year. Wish I would visit new countries at that rate.

I had one of those a few years back. Until the wallet came out the people were rude, everything was over-priced so far I could gaze down and wave at the Eiffel tower, the food was never better than "ok", all beds were hard as rocks, my stomach was in an uproar for a few days after the trip  and to sum it all up I missed a Sonata Arctica concert back for that trip. I do not like Paris (though the catacombs were awesome and Notre Dame a fabulous piece of architecture).

Spent the weekend getting a paid stay at a nice hotel on the universities expense which meant a lot of great food and some education on how to be a better board-member in the student union. I think I managed to gain what we in the northern part of Sweden would call chronic "Palt-koma".
Translation: "Palt" is a type of food known to be able to feed a company of hungry soldiers in no-time (I guess you could call it IRL Soldier pills) and "koma" means "coma". In short, you eat until you can't move.

In short: I had a great time, meeting knew people, ate delicious food until I could burst (four meals in a row) and got to sit in a sauna for a few hours. Best time I've had for several weeks.

I also managed to wrestle with several Great Tit's today (the bird), you would think that impossible considering I weigh more than 6000 times as much as they do, but damn can they fight. But the silver medal has to go to the Blue Tit (still a bird) I fought with for ten minutes until I managed to get it out of the net (you'd think such a small bird wouldn't be able to bite that hard). Bird ringing is more fun than most people can imagine.

My time lap average has increased.

Here's how it works. Anyone remember me mentioning a 12-minute running test a few months back? Well... I failed. I got as far as 5 and a half laps or so (take a slice) before time ran out. So now we're training specifically for the 12-minute run test. Basically, I get my running done, and save the last 12 minutes to take at least 5 laps (aiming for 6).

Last Thursday, I did 5 laps in 12'30" or so. Today, I did 5 laps in 11'35".

Sounds rather similar to some cross country practices I've attended. Usually, our coach would have us work on maximizing our oxygen intake on Mondays, which meant running two miles (a little over eight 400-meter laps, I believe) nonstop as fast as we could go within reason, a fifteen minute recovery period, and then one more mile at a similar pace.

Heh, I've still got a ways to go. My goal for now is 6 laps within 12 minutes - which roughly means an average of 2 minutes per lap. I can run about two or three laps that fast, but from the fourth onward my speed drops quite a bit.

Plus, I'm not on an appropriate diet - not yet. I eat a lot of crap.

At the time I consider myself to be at by best cardiovascular health (at age 17), I could run a mile in about fifteen minutes.  (Or, that's about 6.5 km per hour).  That was when I was on a good diet, was exercising for about 5-6 hours a day, and was extremely defined.  (Was about 210 pounds back then, six-pack and everything).

These days, even though my physical strength is a lot higher than it was 11 years ago, my cardio health has dropped, I can run a mile in about 20 minutes now (or roughly 4.8 km per hour).  Then again, I'm carrying about 50 pounds more on my frame.  Not all of it's fat, but even the self-supporting stuff burns energy real fast, when I'm working out I literally can't eat enough to not feel hungry without rupturing myself.

Not all of speed is about how fast your heart can beat. I have very strong legs (used to bike way too much as a kid, and I lived in the suburbia where there were A LOT of large ramps), to the point where my personal trainer (hate to use the term... I prefer just 'trainer', 'coach' or even 'teacher') figured it was a waste of time to build them up further. My legs have a very good burst speed capability; for me, it's more about how much energy I have to spend and how much of it I keep up or save along the way. Breathing rhythm plays a big part too. Of course, I had to build up to it - when I started, more than a year ago, I could barely run a kilometer or so before my whole damn body gave out. Rhythm-wise, if I keep it at a light pace I can probably run about 16 or more 400 meter laps within an hour or so - it's my 12-minute period that needs the most work.

Your biggest strength is in your upper body, Count. In boxing terms, you probably have wicked punches but only average footwork; I would have better footwork but lower punching power (my grip is relatively weak and I have trouble keeping my wrists straight when bench-pressing).

Actually, in my case my strength is all in my core (Chest, Abs, Back, Hips, Glutes).  My arms and legs have good strength to them, but my arm strength gives out at my forearms.  My wrists are the limiting factor in my arm exercises, and I literally have no strength in my finfgers past the first knuckle from the hand.  (The second knuckle literally has no strength whatsoever, I'm thinking there's something wrong with the tendons). 

However, my speed doesn't drop unless I'm carrying something too heavy for me to lift.  So yes, I'm like a dwarf.

And true, it is a risk sometimes, but none of them wants the cops/courts/public to focus their attention on them.  Most of my coworkers are on probation, have a court date coming, have pending warrants out for their arrests, are skipping child support, committing welfare fraud, selling drugs, or half a dozen other things that would be trouble for them if they tried suing anyone or anyone actually paid attention to them.

Rice, sweet chili, beef roulades filled with red onions, chili, garlic, lime juice and red wine vinegar. All this crowned with a few glasses of delicious Californian red wine.

California makes some decent wine.  Supposedly, the state I'm from (Virginia) makes good wine, but I find Virginia wines to have a too pronounced bite for my tastes.

Last weekend, BimR ran a marathon and then came over to my house where I threw her a surprise party. She was exhausted but had fun. Overall it was a good day. This weekend, she returned the favor and threw a surprise party for me. Totally got me, and it was great. :)

Heh, 5k is quite different from a marathon, I suppose. Let me know if you ever intend to run a marathon though, we could have our training schedules mixed. After half a marathon in full combat gear that should be doable.

Unfortunately not (I'll manage though, for the first three years of University my parents said they would pay my rent), I guess I could force him to give classes though, since he eats my food he might as well pay for it . Since I already started something in the "Ask a simple question ... IRL-edition" I might as well leave it to Bob to teach you all phrases in Swedish that you most certainly will never use. Submit through a PM, Bob will send you a page with phrases every now and then, exams will happen when I have time to be close enough to a computer so he can write, the cost will be a video and/or audio file with you trying to pronounce it.

That would be funny.
Especially if Bob pulled something like the not-particularly-old-or-well-known-farmer-saying:
"Såsen från åsnans ärbara kött måste gömmas från älskande älgar, ålar krälar sällan över åkern och män åstadkommer sällan överdrivet många äppelpajer när änterhaken är fångad av gösen."

Which would, if you were wondering, transalate into someting like this:
"The sauce made from the donkeys honourable meat must be hidden from lovemaking elks, eels rarely crawl over the arable land and men rarely achive exaggerated amounts of apple pies when the grappling hook is captured by the pikeperch."


Which, I immagine, won't be something you'll find usefull in your everyday life. Unless you're RP'ing a Malkavian, just want to say something completly strange to shut the telemarketers up, or device a secret code based upon sheer ridicioulusness.
But on the of chance that you do have some use for it, let me know.
I'd like to hear about it :D

...I wonder if my lack of sleep is affecting my sense of humor at the moment?
Naaaaw, probably not.



And on topic, a reason as good as any for me being happy:
I've finally managed to decide what team to play in Blood Bowl and which models to include in my starting line.
And I found a starting box including every model I'll be needing in the Atheloren Avengers.

It's exactly as I'd advertise it - harder than diamond and about as brilliant.

While dungeon crawl games are relatively nothing new (and this game in particular reminds me, a LOT, of a medieval PSO), this game works well. The atmosphere and the system just mesh really well together; the game has a gritty feel despite the fact you're hacking through demons.

Now if only they didn't gang up as much as they do... Most basic strategy in Demon's Souls, for me, is: turtle behind your shield, lure one enemy at a time, attack when no one else does.

That's right: in Demon's Souls S&B is THE MOST EFFECTIVE THING EVER.

Specially with spear and shield, or spear and rapier.

Title: Re: Happy Happy Joy Joy!
Post by: Kuroimaken on November 05, 2009, 09:36:37 PM
Not spear and rapier, shield and spear/rapier. Sorry that wasn't very clear.

Basically, it means you upgrade Stamina like crazy, and then attack from behind your heavy shield. It's cheesy as all hell and doesn't work well against multiple enemies, but it's both reliable and effective.

Of course, you CAN wield a weapon two-handed for greater damage. The stamina consumption is bigger, however, and given that weapons make for a poor defense mechanism, it's not recommend unless you can parry well (in this game, if you time it right and hit R2, you can parry your opponent's strike at virtually null risk to yourself; you can follow with a riposte immediately after that, which is practically an instant-kill - I have yet to see an enemy take a riposte and live, except with a broken weapon).

Since it was November 5th yesterday two of my friends and I made a Guy Fawkes doll, bought some snacks and and started celebrating. First we burned the doll and I read the "Remember, remember, the fifth of November"-rhyme, then we watched V for Vendetta and drank tea. Everything while speaking the most British English we could muster, should be noted that we added to the British touch by buying salt and vinegar crisps.

Well, didn't go so well and I'm trying to let it go because I did was I was told and someone else messed up... but made me look like I didn't know what I was doing. So it sorta made the group look bad, but especially me. I wanted to crawl into a corner and die.

But the second performance went WAY better. I addressed the problem, we worked something out, and everything went a whole lot smoother. :D I had a lot more fun that time around.

I'm directing a One-Act for our school this fall, and auditions were today. We got some really great performances, a few stinkers, but overall they went well. Now I have to decide who to cut, which oddly enough makes me really excited. Normally, our school musicals don't cut because we involve middle schoolers as well and want to keep them involved. Also, every One-Act audition we've had there have been just barely enough people so no one was really cut from the show. Now, I get to do it for the first time. Mwahahahaha!  :smirk

If you are not from Scandinavia you might want to read this (http://www.niksula.cs.hut.fi/~mmm/haalari/kulttuuri/joensuu.html) to understand what I am talking about. It should be mentioned that most people wash theirs today, but their are strict rules governing that particular activity.

Actually this was a fairly good job. Though you are (sadly enough) incredibly correct. But as a Finn yourself you ought to have a hunch about how it works anyway, so you won't have to suffer, other people though :smirk

Royal-Blue, I shall see if I can get a picture of me in it so I can upload it to the picture-thread.

I got a 1.3 score on the test produced by the Swedish Institute of Higher Education (which btw sound a lot more impressive in english than it's original name) to be used for getting into the education you're after.
Basically, if you fucked up your grades for some reason, you have a chance at using this instead or as a complemetary product to them.
I didn't manage Physics B, which of course happens to be the single largest course I took.
The maximum is 2.0, minimum 0.0, this years agverage is 0.91.
Pretty good, actually. 66% correct on the first attempt.
With no preparations.
On an effective sleep of 2 hours.
Battling the aftereffects of a cold.

I salute thee. When I took it I ended up with 0.8 (first time as well). Passed Physics B but that was about it, never understood why they thought I would need it for a Biology-career, that is one heck of a course.

Okay... I just got my body composition test done today and the results are ridiculous. Let's compare...

22 year old Male
6'2" (185cm ish)

10/30/09: 187 pounds (84.82kg)
Body Fat% - Calipers: 16%
Body Fat% - Scale: 18%
Average: 17%

12/02/09: 181 pounds (81.1 kg)
Body Fat% - Calipers: 6.1%
Body Fat% - Scale: 8.0%
Average: 7%

Comparing the two:
10/30/09
Body Fat: 31.79 pounds fat (14.41kg)
Lean Body Mass: 155.21 pounds (70.4kg)

12/02/09
Body Fat: 12.67 pounds fat (5.75kg)
Lean Body Mass: 168.33 pounds (76.35kg)

That means in the time of about 1 month:
Fat Lost: 19.12 pounds (8.67kg)
Lean Body Mass Gained: 13.12 pounds (5.95kg)

These numbers are ridiculous. Did I do something wrong in my math? Or did I seriously lose fat and enter hypertrophy at the same time?

I listen to music from Finnish anarchistic left-wing rap all the way to semi-right-wing metal and I was wondering what should I answer, so did not reply. Now I know what I should have quoted:
"So you've been to school for a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car thinkin' you'll go far
Back East your type don't crawl
Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On you five grand stereo
Braggin' that you know how the niggers feel the cold
And the slum's got so much soul
It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here"

And no, googling that is not hard.

AC came to visit me and brightened up my stressful weekend. We played Borderlands (Mordecai is ALMOST level 20), cuddled, and then watched Zack and Miri make a porno (funny stuff).

Also, before that I had to go on a field trip to an art museum with my class. On the bus ride back to school, I was looking through my teacher's stuff (she bought fun stuff at the gift store!) I found the card that had made me laugh (it was a statue of david with cake over his crotch and the inside says "have your cake and eat it too". I made a comment like, "oh! that's the card I wanted!" or something to that effect... and she gave it to me. I tried to not take it, but she didn't take no for an answer, so now I have this card. And it makes me happy everytime I look at it.  :D

I got an A on a test I didn't study for (but I knew most of the information by heart anyway), I got an A on both of my 3D models that I had stressed over and worked on for the entire weekend, and I got an A on my 2D animation (the teacher said it was my best yet!). I'm just so happy that my hard work is paying off. Especially since I was starting to doubt myself and my abilities.
I just need to hang in there 'til Friday so that I can hand in 3 After Effects projects to my teacher and then run home to drink and decorate the house for Christmas with my mom. :D

Only one more exam to go.  I'm pretty confident about my chemistry exam.  I know I nailed at least 6 points extra credit, and I'm comfortable with everything except the vapor pressure question.  (Not good with that).

Considering majoring in Chemistry instead of Biology when I get to actual college. For one, chem majors make the most out of any science undergrad degree, for another Biology is more political.  (As in, I don't want to get fired when I'm asked about creationism and I tell them that it's bullshit :p)

I'd like to work in America for a short time just so that exact thing can happen to me. Chem is fun, I can understand why people study it, and I don't know about the US, but here in Sweden they tend to get work the same moment they clear university. Biology is more fun though, would not trade it for anything right now.


Speaking of school, got top grade on my latest exam!

If you like chemistry, definitely go that route. You can still do biology research if you want. You'll just make more money and be able to do more interesting science. :P

Please elaborate, kittyman :D

We were goofing off during break discussing who could freak out the boss on 1st shift the worst if given the opportunity in conversation (long story. looooooooong story).  The guys made the usual suggestions like calling him a dick and I said they were amateurs at offending people (which they are).  They asked how I could do better, and I gave them this example:

[spoiler]
"Hey Frankie, you know what the best film in the entire goddamn world is?"

"Uh no...what?"

"The Passion of the Christ.  You know why?"

"No...why?"

"Because it's the only movie in the world you can jack off to while watching Jesus Christ get skinned alive like he fucking deserves.  The only way it could possibly be better is if they showed him dying on his knees with another mans cock in his mouth.  You couldn't ask for a better turn on than that."[/spoiler]


That pretty much stunned them into open mouthed silence for something like 5 minutes.  Well most of them.  I think Frankie is still stunned.  he didn't speak the rest of the night, he just sort of sat there staring into space...

In my defense they did ask for offensiveness.  0:)

Thanksgiving is awesome; it's a holiday centered around eating.  Taco Day is better because it's a holiday centered around eating tacos.  Eat that, Puritans!  Here's hoping I eat as much as possible while still being able to move later. :plotting

Due to my current diet and exercise regimen, I have lost 3 pounds in the last week.  I am calling that a success.

I have made the decision to lose some weight.  Not to impress women or anything juvenile like that, but because I'm motherfucking awesome and I deserve to have a nice body. 

I have always been strong and had impressive endurance, but I've always carried extra weight on my frame.  I'm sure if I got a bit leaner and had less dead weight, I could be very formidable.

Post by: CountArioch on January 07, 2010, 11:01:02 PM
Bowen:  Basically, I do three weight training and three cardio workouts a week, and take the seventh day off.

I split weight training into upper and lower body, alternating on weight training days (Two upper and a lower one week, two lower and an upper the next)

For weight training, I try to work until I literally am so tired I can't do anymore after 3 sets of 12.  I lift with slow, controlled movements, and take twice as long to lower the weight as I did to lift it. 

For cardio, I do interval training where I gradually increase intensity until I'm doing all I can for a minute, then drop down, doing 4 cycles of that over 20 minutes.  Trust me, if you do it right, 20 minutes is all you need.

Basically, it is designed to be efficient, and to push me to my personal limits and beyond.  I have been at a plateau for a long time because I wasn't pushing myself for a very long time.  I am starting to see some nice improvements in the past week.

As for food, I assume one "portion" is about the size of my fist, and eat a portion of carb and a portion of protein 6 times a day, and try to get 2 portions of vegetable somewhere in there.  (There aren't a lot of vegetables I can consume and not be violently ill, so I do supplement my diet with a multivitamin.

I do that already :p.  But I think that there are enough pragmatic benefits to dropping some extra weight that it's still worth my time.  Also, I'm limited by what clothes I can wear because of my awkward beer gut.  (All my extra weight is literally in my abdomen.  It makes me look off-balance.)

Well, nobody likes having their bling dice go smash. And I've learned custom dice sometimes have an unexpectedly good bounce that can send them from a 6 inch drop onto padded plastic into a meter high drop off the tables and then 2-3 ricochets afterwards.

Well, maybe unless it's made of chrome steel or something.

Congrats. My wife's "conditional" status was removed from hers just a week or two ago, as well. Did you guys have to leave the country to wait for the approval? Or what?

We haven't been in Canada for like two and a half years, so we didn't have any of those sorts of problems.  Of course, now it's all: "TWO MONTHS?!  SHIT!  GET THE BAGS!  THROW EVERYTHING AWAY!  ZOMG!!!eleventy-one!"

The funny thing is that if I hadn't stayed home sick today, I wouldn't have been here to sign for the package.

I found an arcade with Blazblue Continuum Shift here in my city! (consider this something very lucky, since I looked at every arcade I know and more, but never found it...)

The sad thing is that apparently the processor playing it is so bad that it might be running the game at 30 fps... and thus making the game play slow...

I just found out I have a fairly large amount of money in the form of funds at two banks (I thank my family for that), enough to finance my trip to Borneo later this year, actually enough to do that 3,5 times if I wanted too!

This is great if I can''t find a scholarship willing to pay for some of it (as the trip is a part of my studies) or if I can't find any job at all this summer (both are actually a fairly likely possibilities).

Anyway I'M GOING TO BORNEO THIS AUTUMN!!! :D :D :D

In the past month, I haven't been screamed at, had lies told to my friends to get them to hate me, been told lies about my friends to get me to hate them, or been stood up.

I'm still waiting for the first fight.  That's always a big step.

I've confirmed my suspicions that I am able to control local weather.

Yesterday, I went out to play some D&D with my friends. I have this standing joke with them that I can control weather. I'm home alone for the weekend and up to this morning, but I didn't think to close the windows before I went out in case it rained.

So we're playing, and I notice it starts raining. I comment out loud, "Oh fuck, my room better be dry when I get home."

We wrap it up, and it's still raining, but I'm not going out just yet. I comment out loud: "Fuck, this rain better have stopped when I have to go home".

And it does. I get home, and not only my room, but none of the rooms with open windows is wet.

Just finished moving to a desk that has more room, it's in a busier area (I'm no longer tucked away in a dark corner) and receives indirect sunlight (and occasionally direct sunlight!). It's blows the little dungeon corner I had before out. of. the. water.

I'm happier than I can currently express in words or emoticons.

No, just performance dance: ballroom, tap, ballet, jazz, a little modern.

I guess that will have to do. The only exception to my "Do not dance while sober" rule is the Macarena, and that one is saved for very special occasions since I do not drink alcohol.

I missed Kiss last concert in Sweden as well. This was as a result of the celebration that comes with finishing secondary. The sad part is, I also missed Dio's concert as a result of this and did not even like my class. Sometimes I think fate likes to tease the living hell out of me

The one female presidential candidate we had in the last election here (a month or so ago) has ten children, all named after Germanic heroes and whatnot, is married to a known neonazi, and had to make a statutory declaration so people would believe her that she genuinely thinks the holocaust happened (and many still don't buy it).

Just got back from the Distant Worlds (http://www.ffdistantworlds.com/) show. Awesome orchestra playing awesome Final Fantasy songs with the man himself, Uematsu, in the audience (he also joined the choir during "One Winged Angel").

This was without a doubt the best show I have ever seen, I almost started weeping twice, succeeded once and I now have the autograph of both Uematsu and Arnie Roth. It took me roughly 20 minutes to gather my thought enough to speak properly afterwards because of the pure awesome I had been bombarded with for a few hours.

Arnie said something about the show being recorded though, so they might release a live-cd.

Congrats. I've been losing some weight myself lately. It's nice to have to wear a belt with pants I couldn't even comfortably fit into not long ago. :D I don't know exactly how much I've lost as the battery is dead in our scale. :P (And it's one of those annoying little watch-type batteries...)

I had a brief scare at work today:

Yesterday I pushed an update of a project into production with seemingly no issues.  This morning, I find five emails in my inbox all related to problems with this project.  I got pretty worried because I get dinged on my performance if I push things to production with defects.  I read through them all and they were all user-error.

High five!  No one-on-one with the boss!

It took me a second to figure out why you posted that. :p



Gaa!  Sadface.

I've never worked with solid state drives before, so I didn't know they need a 2.5 inch form factor bay and not the standard 3.5 inch bay that a normal hard drive uses.  Translation: I can't properly mount one of my two drives!

Well, I can, but I don't feel like fucking around with zip ties and half-assing it.  It's the single most expensive component of the PC, so I might as well spend an extra $7 and get an adapter.  The only real sucky thing is that it will take a few days to get that last part and the PC is otherwise assembled.  I have another drive in there for mass storage, but I want the OS on the SSD.  Oh well.  I can wait three more days, I guess.  Honestly, I wasn't expecting the thing to arrive today anyway.
Title: Re: Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Title: Re: Happy Happy Joy Joy!
Post by: RobbyPants on August 11, 2010, 07:04:20 PM
I'm seriously just considering leaving it out as Phaedrus suggested for a day or two so I can install the OS and other software, but I've already ordered the adapter.  Although, I can only do this a few hours at night.  I have two cats and an almost-two-year-old daughter, so leaving the case open long term isn't really an option.

But yeah, I was looking on-line for tips, and there's no shortage of people who either leave it sit on the bottom of their case or duct tape it to a side panel.

It's hopefully a moot point.  I checked my order confirmation, and supposedly, it's due to arrive today, which is really pretty cool.  Less than 18 hours order to delivery is pretty good for a 3-7 day ground shipment.

Anyway, if it does show up today, then I can mount it all before I put power to the thing for the first time.

Still, my efficiency rate is at its peak when outside temperature is at -5 to -8 degrees Celsius.

Eh, it gets better for that purpose later. Basically, once you've got a full garden of marigolds and some chocolate (plus the snail) you can feed the snail one chocolate, go watch a movie or something, and he'll pick up all the coins for you. Also, you can sell the plants (hint: Marigolds aren't worth selling, every other plant is).

Post by: veekie on October 05, 2010, 09:56:42 AM
^^
While they are not fully grown, it's worth it to tend them to full growth, since they drop a diamond at full bloom.
Also, it's sorta fun to fill the place with as many varieties as you can find. I mostly sell them until the garden is about 3/4 full so more seeds drop.

Basically, once you've got a full garden of marigolds and some chocolate (plus the snail) you can feed the snail one chocolate, go watch a movie or something, and he'll pick up all the coins for you.
I do this before grocery shopping and find more monies than I know what to do with.
The water and night gardens aren't as useful, though they need less tending to get the moolah.

I just landed a new job. My first "real" job after finishing my PhD (did a couple post-docs between). After negotiating a bit, they gave me almost as much money as I'd asked for, and had no problem putting off my start date for a month to accommodate the 2 week vacation to Hawaii my wife and I are taking to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. They also said a promotion is likely within 6 months or so. Life is goooood.  0:)

Had a Crowning Moment of Awesome today.

My mom asked me to take her laptop case to where she worked, because there were some documents in it. So rule one of the place I was headed is that I had to dress relatively nice.

As I was heading there, a guy not much bigger than me but built like a ton of bricks (typical gym rat) walks up to me and starts the classic mugger talk. As in "I've got two other guys with me, give me your wallet and your laptop and you won't get hurt." I was listening to music as I walked, and perhaps not by accident, this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZ1dEU0IRO0) started playing. I reply to him that whether he wants to announce to the world that he likes guys is not my problem and that I had already donated to the local mentally challenged NGO this year. So he gets pissy and pulls a knife. Now, this wasn't just some pussy switchblade, it was a full-on, Rambo-style hunting knife. So he asks for my wallet again. I respond that I forgot it at his sister's nightstand last time I visited her workplace.

The guy lunges. My body reacted before I did, falling back on my kenjutsu training days, and I dodge to the side, punch his arm, grab his wrist and twist it high above his back, then grab the knife. The guy was yelping a lot more than I expected him to, and his arm was really limp, I have no idea why. Maybe I broke something. Anyway. I tell him I got enough shit to do as it is and am not in the mood for his faggotry. Then I kick him in the ass, spit on the guy, toss the knife aside and turn around.

I don't take more than a couple of steps before he yells "Sonuvabiiiiiiiiitch" and I start turning around. I see him throw the knife outta the corner of my eye and swing my arm wide to bat it away. I end up snatching it off the air instead.

"You've got no fucking technique. Let me show you how it's done."

He starts running, I close my eyes and toss the knife his way. It wedges clean in the back of his thigh, no more than a dozen centimeters away from his ass. And then I walk away.

My best friend from high school has a blackbelt and taught at a dojo for a while (while he was still in HS). After HS, he went into the marines where he was ranked first in marksmenship in his class, and was then placed on a rapid-response anti-terrorist squad. After his tour of duty ended, he was a police officer, and he still volunteers to teach self-defense to the police force, although he has since moved on to a job that offers more pay for less risk (he sells insurance...). If he told me that story, I'd believe it. But I certainly wouldn't from most other people. :P

But seriously, now that I think about it, it scares the crap out of me. I tend to get by on luck most of the time, and everyone knows luck doesn't last forever. If I could at least figure out how I pull things like those off, I could minimize the danger.

Well, maybe one other person.

It's a testament to Kuroi's sheer manliness.

I was shocked by a wall outlet current once. I'm not sure that counts as being electrocuted, as I thought that implied that you died from it...  :p

Best thing I got is having been in indirect contact with a cut power cord. Said indirect contact consisted mostly of plastic, though, so I didn't actually get a shock. Does the fact I was a kid count for extra credit? :P

Technically the worst injury I've felt was being hit in the head with a paint can (long story), falling off a two story house because of it, and landing on the back edge of hte plastic seat of a riding mower on my breastbone.   Bruised it all the way down to the bone but amazingly i had no cracked or broken bones.


On the other hand I've also somehow managed to fracture three thoracic vertebrae and herniate a lumbar disk without realizing it.

I know most experiments are recorded, but I don't see a video on our wiki, unfortunately. If I see it uploaded, I'll link it.

For the record, the experiment involved air being compressed so fast that it heated up enough to ignite a pellet of easily flammable material (the exact name escapes me, but I know it started with pyro-, which should tell you something about the stuff, and it ignites around 180°C).

In unrelated by no less happy news, yesterday was the first time in a long while that I wrote a character background in one go with minimal interruptions, despite it turning out longer than most other backgrounds I've written recently. Refreshing, to say the least. It was also my first Changeling character.

Which I don't. Not any more than necessary anyway. My leg and arm muscles (along with my dorsal and lombar muscles) already do pretty much 90% of the work. I'd be surprised if my chest muscles did 5%.

It was raining and it was cold. Ergo, boots.

Oh, and this douchebag tried to cut in front of the line at the bank, and so I said, "Sorry, this line is ordered by IQ from largest to smallest, and you belong in the back of the line forever." "What you gonna do about it?"

"This."

The usage of "fag" to mean a cigarette, then cognac, and a terrace, imply British Lord-dom.

Edit: I lied. My parents posted one on Facebook, so I don't have to wait to get the camera.

Something funny happened on my workout today. My coach (as I dislike the term personal trainer) told me we'd be trying a different kind of push-up today where you cross your legs and pull them up towards your head repeatedly. He said I should use some sort of support to do it though, so we put all the weights I have on the bar I use for bench-pressing, and then to make sure it wouldn't move he held it down.

So we got started, and lo and behold, the bar moved roughly six inches off the floor. So he started holding it down with both hands, pushing it down with his weight while we counted.

I still lifted it each time. All 54 kilograms of it, plus however many kilograms he was pushing down as force.

2 full sets of 70.

I feel pretty good about myself right about now.
