I'm almost back to full beard.

I'm debating on going full kratos beard, but mine always gets gnarly out of control after a certain point. I'm not good a trimming it once it gets longer than my trimmer guards.

I trim mine with scissors but it's taken a long time to get decent at it. I can get it pretty nicely lined up these days, though I usually settle for "close enough."

Scissors.

My FWP is a bit late but your post reminded me: every year when spooky season rolls around and I have to think of a costume that accommodates my beard, every pop culture/media character that has a big bears is also buff as all hell, but I'm a skinny lad so it would look kinda dumb to be Really Hungry Kratos.

Maybe I'll invest in a fake muscle suit. Or dress up like Oscar Isaac characters.

Just buy one of those muscle suits lol


on another note... FWP.
you know when you start laying down a song and it starts off pretty fun and then you come back to finish it off a few weeks later and it just turns to crap.

bah!

that was my night. I think it's time to trash this one and start on a new one.

I have some nacho chips and salsa I bought last week but I'm never hungry enough to enjoy them in the evening. :mad:

Just start eating them. After forcing yourself to choke down the first few, you'll blank out and the bag will be half gone before you realize what you've done. At least, if you're anything like me.

Find a buddy who has some deer meat in the fridge, and make some deer meat nachos. Just fry that shit up, put it over the chips then dump a bunch of shredded cheese on them, bake them for a few minutes, sprinkle the salsa, and invite some friends over to watch The Deer Hunter.

Even better! When I was in Helsinki I bought a ton of that shit at the airport to bring back, and they wouldn’t let me bring it on the plane so I just stood at the trash can by the gate and opened it and ate all I could handle right in front of them. I was so pissed.

Woke up early to got to Best Buy before they closed to get a new set of over ears that were on sale for a good price. Sale was online only. Went and spent the money on groceries instead.

I got lucky this year...I've been working out and using natty steroids (crippling depression), so I had the prefect costume...

Thought I'd made a new tax card for the rest of the year because I grossly overestimated my income for this year. Well, instead of a lower tax percentage it would have actually risen so yeah, fuck that. :ugh:

I really want to play God of War Ragnarok, but Sony is stupid.

oh yes... the frustrations of updating software and things breaking or not working...... what should have been an hour or so is now a day long event.

Thank you technology.

That's video games in general. Each time i turn on my Xbox one, i get an update. At this point, the only reason to get a console is because it is so much cheaper than a solid PC...

Bought some candy today thinking I'd wind down and watch a movie or something after a 7 day work week but I'm too tired to watch any movie and it's almost 1am anyway. I shouldn't have even bought it in the first place because I've been trying to cut down on sugar and I've even seen some results weight loss-wise but the candy rack that I always have to stare in my corner shop while waiting in line just seemed too tempting today. :lol:

I'm about ready to scream. i can't get for the life of me the Kontakt 7 update to install. What a massive pile of garbage.

edit: WHEW... after over 8 hours I finally got it installed. What a pain the butt that was.

....and now with all the things on the latest and greatest updated versions, cubase is still giving me massive cpu spikes. I reverted back to the last good version i had and it now has the same issue. So I just updated again to the latest.


I wonder if the battery is going bad on my laptop or something and I just don't know it. It's not that old though.... I had similar issues with CPU spikes on my last laptop when it's battery was about to bite the dust though.

the battery in my meat thermometer died right while i was cooking up a ton of chicken. What makes it worse is that I don't have a backup battery
