Out of the Blue

Well, everybody is fed and dressed and ready to start their day here. We had a minor babysitting victory with the Smurfs this morning, when we managed a break from routine to have breakfast that did not include my world-famous pancakes. The French Toast I whipped up turned out to be equally successful, so we now have another option to offer in the future. This is actually simply because they are just as good a vehicle for syrup as the pancakes, so I'm not getting too puffed up over my cooking skills. I'm guessing stale bread would go over fine too, were it dipped in enough syrup.

Thanks for the credit, Batman

I was wondering if you were still reading that thread or not, luckily you were. I'm usually about 6 hours off on the updates, living in the Netherlands and all.

Anyway, glad to be of service.

I got a pretty good idea what the animal is in that photo - it looks a lot like a feral dog with an advanced case of Sarna (scabies)

Precisely.

I own GW and played it for a bit but I really didn't get into it very much. I kinda liked WoW and EQ2 more.

I think it's just the customary lull. With Fear, Civ 4, and B&W2(fingers crossed), I think some big games will be here soon.

And don't forget STALKER and Duke Nukem Forever!

I agree, 2005 has been kinda crappy so far. We are coming off of one of the best years though (2004) so can't complain too much.

Anyone else agree with me and think that 2005 so far at least has been the worst year for gaming in a while? The only thing that people really wanted was BF2. It reminds me of hollywoods' stinker summer this year.

Guild Wars.


Was just gonna say! I've gotten a year's worth of gaming out of that one title and then some

Balrog is the man.
The movie is, "Ordinary Decent Criminal".

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew he is the movie man.

Batman... Batman... Can somebody tell me what kind of a world we live in, where a man dressed up as a BAT gets all of my press?

Yea it's been rather slow, but here's to hoping something might popup during the fall. I'm hoping F.E.A.R can provide some entertainment. I'm also heavily thinking about picking up guild wars, but with money being amazingly thight for me at the moment, I'm still holding on it. Besides RPG's have a nasty tendency to become incredibly addictive to me.
Even E3 was rather slow this year imo.

Yeah...the year's not over yet though. Quake 4 and CoD 2 are coming out this year....well, CoD2 is slated for this year anyway. Those two will make it all up for me!

Did you mix cinnamon AND nutmeg into the egg batter, Blue? It's very important that you do.

What he found in his trap was a mix between a hairless dog, a rat and a kangaroo.

I got a pretty good idea what the animal is in that photo - it looks a lot like a feral dog with an advanced case of Sarna (scabies). Pretty common to see cases like that down in areas where you get a lot of dogs running wild, I've seen several that looked very similar.

If you ever see a hairless dog that scratches an awful lot, just walk away - the disease is fully transmissible to humans (although easily curable, thank goodness).

(Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to white sugar as "white death" back in his competititive days).

So did Atkins in his book. Quite possibly one was quoting the other. I know who my money's on.

Anyway:

Wonder if they were filming a new series of The Simple Life in the area...


Now THAT'S funny.

9. Refined Sugar Aug 27, 2005, 14:11 Hump
 
refined sugar (and especially high fructose syrup) is not nearly as healthy as the natural sugars found in plants and fruits

Theres a physically addictive aspect to refined suggar as well. I started grabbing a candy bar, milk duds etc after work for my evening snack on a nightly basis. I started gaining weight but when I tried to knock off the sweets it became a monumental effort to stop. The craving would literally wake me up at night if i didn't take in enough sugar before bedtime. Worse than trying to quite coffee but somewhat less than nicotine it took me a LONG time to wean myself down. I ate (as Space Captain said) fruits, unsweetened juices etc. and eventually got myself back to normal. Since then I've talk to others who have had similar experiences (mostly all middle aged like myself). Nasty stuff if not used in moderation (Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to white sugar as "white death" back in his competititive days).

A Texas farmer may have found what some would call a "chupacabra," a legendary animal known for sucking the blood out of goats.

What he found in his trap was a mix between a hairless dog, a rat and a kangaroo.


Wonder if they were filming a new series of The Simple Life in the area...

sugar is essential for proper brain function - thats why it tastes so good... however, refined sugar (and especially high fructose syrup) is not nearly as healthy as the natural sugars found in plants and fruits
