Having a look at what it would take to DIY up a lightsaber hilt for cosplay at Comic-Con before I head off and face the joys of a working day.

Still trying to adjust my sleeping patterns for that, so far I seem to be averaging about 4-5 hours sleep a night which I should improve on....

I had all 4 taken out, don't think I took many painkillers.  Do remember it being a pain to have to eat soup for about 5 days or so, though.

I had all 4 wisdom teeth at once. Wasn't the worst in the world but that first 24 hours after was no fun, most certainly.

 

Been playing Generation Zero this evening, I'm having a blast even while solo. Going to play with mates once they can afford it. Also once I get a new headset.

I've been eyeballing that game. Still not sure if I'm going to buy it, but it does look like something I *might* like. :)

 

...that said, I think I need one of those short gaming/pc breaks. Can't even muster the desire to check out the new Grim Dawn expansion that came out today.

you are all heroes i guess, I jsut got cold and have to work overtimes, I just want to lay down end sleep


I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I've a chipmunk broke into my house. He has been staying around the kitchen and living room skidding all around the floor.

No matter how many times I try to lead him to the door he keeps going in a completely different direction. :banghead:

CHIPMUNK. I wish we had those. I would be tossing it nuts and cooing and trying to make it a pet. Well, ok, not really a pet. But that's how I'd get close/gain "trust" and coax it out the open sliding glass door - love 'em but yeah, don't want them living in the house. But then hopefully it would revisit now and then for more treats! No no, not a pet! Just occasional buddies, is all!

Yeah, I know, some hate such creatures. I love 'em tho, so pffft. I spent so much on nuts that one year when I had half a dozen showing up periodically.

We had raccoons in the backyard two nights in a row earlier this week. Sucks because my dogs love running in the yard at night but I can't let them out if I think there might be any critters that might attack them instead of running away.

Do you keep your trash cans back there? Racoons are scavengers extraordinaire.

Trashcans are around the side on the other side of the fence and I have bungee cords on them to make them harder to open. The raccoons came right up to the sliding glass door and just sat there watching us watch them. My dogs aren't very good at being dogs so they missed the whole thing.

 

One of my security cameras has a good view of the trash but I haven't yet caught them trying to get into them

Scary thing I learned about chipmunks today, they eat mice. :x

 

They are omnivorous, but I don't think I'd heard about mice (had heard they ate small frogs). Learn something new everyday!

 

Heh, my younger cat is licking my hand like a doggie! :lol:

 

Hope you pass the food / not food test. :shifty::p

Today I combined the remnants of 3 different bags of granola to get a bowl of cereal. Cranberry, Cinnamon Flax, and Quinoa Flax. It did the job.

flax is the stuff used to make linen, yes? you don't eat the tablecloth. 

 

am knowing the flax seed is what is used for oils, and the seed is edible, but have never used-- flaxseed oil has an even lower smoke point than butter, so am rare seeing a point.

 

then again, am only a transplanted californian, and have never willing an/or knowing eaten a pizza with artichoke hearts, avocado, or sprouts.  am clear not baseline california. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Warmer weather seems to mean even more crazies out on the street.  Have some hobo outside my office's building doing the Ric Flair Woo in the middle of cursing and ranting, in addition to the fake blind guy and the apathetic evangelist.  Suppose it could be worse, there are a lot of bums randomly assaulting people. 

 

Also disappointed in my coworkers for not getting the reference when I mentioned a politician here in Toronto once wanted "a final solution" to the homeless problem.

Visited the Museum of Death, which had an exhibit on serial killers. One of the displays had an interview form filled out by John Wayne Gacy, and some of the answers he gave caused the Twilight Zone theme to play in my head:

 

Q: Who is your hero?

A: Donald Trump.

 

Q: What would you do if you were president for a day?

A: I would make sure everybody had a job and a place to stay before helping out other countries.

 

Keep in mind that Gacy was executed in 1994.

Taking a slow weekend at the moment, a bunch of the "admin household" stuff to be handled.

 

Planning on going on a hunt for parts to DIY into a lightsaber hilt so I can go Star Wars geek to London Comic-Con in may.

Actually pondering on the viability of a 3d-printer at home. It's been  a few years since I played around with CAD softwarre, but prices for home enthusiast and classroom style 3D-Printers seem to be dropping.  Anyone have any deep wells of knowledge on the subject?
