To all of those people who said I waste too much time on facebook, I have a guide to punching them in the face and dropping an elbow lock on them. I responded to some code thing and they sent over this sweet little 2011 collection of top fights and behind the scenes stuff from UFC. It’s cool because it’s a pre-release and was free ninety nine. Let the Brodown begin!
I’ve been in a solid relationship for so long my bachelor instincts are all but gone. Don’t get me wrong. I’m still a virile young buck; I’ll catcall women until my throat is hoarse and bloody. I just don’t really remember all those simple 30 second microwave recipes I used to survive on. These days if my girlfriend is away I just stare at my pantry and fridge and wonder what madman invented so many close-to-but-not edible products.
Latest day at the range with the old lady, here’s some of the aftermath. I think the sights on the gun we rented was off because I was getting good grouping but was off vertically. Either way I think she got the bug too, so looks like we’ll have to get rid of some other spending habits to make room for this.
Kobey Swap Meet hadn’t paid off for the past 3 weeks. It was either cancelled for weather or just had nothing to offer me. Today though I managed to come across a lot of 38 test tubes for a cool $5. I was pretty happy to find American made glassware and something to set off my science/nerd gland. Although the test tube tends to be more chemistry and as a biologist I have a softer spot for the culture tube; there’s no reason a guy like me couldn’t find a use for these. At the very least it’s a great addition to my growing at home bio lab.
I like having hobbies. Recently I had reached the expensive end of a lot of my current hobbies. You can only go so long before your skills push beyond the simple beginner kits and you start having to buy specialized gear. In the spirit of self-improvement I started looking around for new skills to pick up. Diversify my interests while making myself more valuable during an apocalypse. This is the first target from trying to learn to fire faster and more accurately. A buddy of mine brought out his single action .22 and we rented a 9mm Glock. We ran through something like 200 rounds and I was starting to get the hang of keeping my stance and recoil management. The gun bug definitely bit…
Recently I took the girlfriend out to see a movie. If you’ve ever heard me talk about movie theaters you’re well aware I can’t stand them. We chose a relatively small theater well away from any major college and tucked in a strip mall. The idea was to try to find something outside of the radius of bored people and closer to moms who would complain about messy seats or bad projectors. It paid off and the overall experience was tolerable. We decided to check out Drive. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring a pretty cool cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, Oscar Isaac, and Albert Brooks. I was pretty excited to see another Refn film. Being a fan…
If this weren’t California this stuff would be even stronger!
