Hello Earthlings –
Sunday morning is here. The general consensus is that Sunday is an awful day to blog: no one is on TA, or they are out doing other things. Me – I think it’s an awesome day to blog! To try and fit all my weekend adventures on a Monday blog is just too much. Plus, while I am at home I can really lay into some quality blogging without worrying about work. I could blog in the evening when I get home from work, but due to time differences, all my TA friends are retiring for the night! So here is a Sunday Blog for yall. Feel free to read while you are taking a poop.
So Shabu Shabu on Friday was AWESOME! I had such a good time. I asked for 7 drops (1 more than my coworkers) of hot-hot-hot sauce extract to be into my dipping sauces. Boy did it burn, but my tolerance impressed all. I really loved putting my cabbages and tofus into the boiling water and eating it with rice. And then when it was over, by this time my boiling water had taking on properties of various other things put into it, so it became stock for my udon noodle soup. Was that broth ohhhhhh so yummy.
Afterwards we went to Vons to get some Tillamook Icecream. It’s a rarity down here, and I believe my main man topher can vouch for the awesomeness of Tillamook products.
Saturday was a day of walkies. We walked over to the mall and mallbrated around. Of course it’s a depressed and ghetto mall, but there is a Gamestop, a Trader Joe’s, and a World Market. No copy of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon
at Gamestop however. We went to Bevmo where there was a tall legged girl trying to get me to try some Vodka. I told her I was a tequila man. Dieschlinge called me a flirt. And then someone knocked over a huge bottle of tequila in an aisle so that entire area of the store smelt like…we.. Tequila (ie – it smelt gooood). I got me a big bottle of Corzo silver.
Next stop at Trader Joe’s for some provisions. What do I need? Components to make that buffalo-wing-pizza-taco!
That’s right, I called it out on Blog # 292 asking for someone to do it. I stepped up to my own challenge. Except, I had some barriers.
1 – since I am a vegetarian, no more real buffalo wings. I do miss buffalo wings, but alas. So instead I got a bottle of buffalo wing sauce and some Quorn fake chicken.
2 – no access to New York style pizza. I needed something wide and flexible. None of the delivery places around here do this style, and most frozen pizzas are a rising crust style. So I got the thinnest crust at Trader Joe’s that I could.
So here are the assembled ingredients:
The tequila and mix was there to compliment my pizza at the time, but I wound up drinking RC Cola instead.
So pizza in the oven, faux-chicken cooked on the stove, and when it was done I tossed it on low heat with the wing sauce. This wing sauce brand turned out really flavourful! I put the fake meat on one side of the pizza to show a before folding:
So I folded it and nommed it:
So… it doesn’t really look like a taco as much as a calzone actually. However, it was pretty tasty still, and working with what I had, I think I had limited success.
So while I am nomming this faux-chicken-buffal-sauce-pizza-taco-calzone thing, DieSchlinge1066
and I are were Diamond Dogs, a Dolph Lungren movie.
It was meh. It was filmed in Mongolia, which really peaked my interested, however the crew refused to do any interesting mise en scene, so Mongolia is portrayed as really drop and boring. Nothing but dirt hills and dead grass every where. It might as well been filmed in a quarry in Colorado. Anywho, Dolph is always good to see, but the movie was too slow and really drab to watch. There really was no sense of adventure – they are trying to find a magic tapestry right? So I am thinking adventure movie along the lines of Indiana Jones or something. Nope, just driving. However, lots of credit goes to the cars they drive in – they have 101 Dalmation cushions on them. Daaaaah.
So that was a little disappointing.
Anywho, that’s the weekend so far in terms of adventures! In an hour we go to renew the lease on our flat. Yay!
So what was the world of gaming like?
Friday evening I was feeling a bit altruistic. My buddy moogless
and this GTASC team were in the elimination bracket, so I offered to help Moogles with some achievements. We played Doritos Crash Course
together. Damn is that game awful. Not only is the game play bleh, but there was a plethora of connection and lag issues. However, Moogless got lots of achievements and his team didn’t get eliminated. I’d like to think I had a weeee bit part in helping them
So Friday night and Saturday morning was allllll about the Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
. Did I mention my fondness for Skylanders? Well, I like Skylanders.
Anywho, I beat the story! Lots of achievements earned in the process:
And then this achievements was a bastard to get:
Those lasers are neigh impossible to dodge! So what I did was level up one of my undead guys to make him go like… into ghost form or something? While in this form he takes gradual damage, but other stuff doesn’t hurt him. So I just stayed in that form and success!
I now only have 2 achievements left in the game: beat the final boss without switching my Skylander and then an achievements for getting all the other achievements (groooan). The last boss was TOUGH! I wound up losing almost all my Skylanders trying to beat him. So I got some leveing to do. I can do him in co-op mode, so Dieschinge is working on her Skylanders so she can try and take him down with me. I am so close to 1000 pointing this game, I am excited! I am also really pumped for the sequal, Skylanders Giants, but so far it is only announced for the wii and the 3DS. It better come out on the xbox!
And finally, an achievement in Texas Hold'em
I still need 3 hands played I’ve never gotten before: Royal flush, straight flush, and 4 of a kind. All luck on there. What I’ve been doing is using my Blazblue Fight Stick and putting something heavy on the 8 button on that and just going off and doing other things, like cleaning. There’s not much else I can do, I could let the game run for years and it may never unlock. Boohoo.
Anywho, that is that my friends! I got my AvP boosting session in a few hours with my good buddies The Disc
, and NJDuke007
. Getting closer to completing the online!
All right boyos and girl-os. Have a good one!
