Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?


Recommended Posts

Honestly, besides not being able to go play and being less inclined to get fast food, nothing really has changed all that much (which is either laughable or so sad you wish someone would put me out of existence already).  Job certainly more stressful since the powers that be decided to pull me off the line as a tender and make me hand pour things with practically no training (and this covid business has made them all go made with facemasks and faceshields and too many things that make my forehead sweat), but still just putting along, though I am reluctant to do overtime during this whole crisis as frankly I cannot be arsed to stay longer.  I am finding it hard to enjoy console gaming much at all, nothing seems to spark a long session or anything, and I am worryingly spending more time browsing social media posts.  Haven't done any tech work or anything like everyone else seems to be doing seeing as the golf course bordering the yard is open and flooded with people and neighbors are out all day in their yards.

I have devolved back into thinking about how I just want to die more often, but I contribute that more to my madness sparking off than this mess of a year, and constant reminders of how no matter how much I work my lot in life is not going to improve.

It's really simple people.   Scorch is right, the My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch! thread (although a great place to get out the stresses of the day) is very negative, let us celebrate the things that hav

Stepped out into the garden 15 minutes ago; Found out nature had used a bucket, some H20 and some cold to produce me an awesome plinking target;    

Current girlfriend is just about perfect. Super intelligent, is a doctor (so helpful, if the Russians invade and we need to start a guerilla war), absolutely filthy in the bedroom and when she's upset

My life hasn't changed much either.

That isn't inherently bad, it just means that the people I care about are almost all online friends so the way I interact with that hasn't changed.
I don't really like people or the outernet so being in the house is fine to me.

 

You seem to have a lot on your mind, look if your boss has made you do a new job with no training that essentially absolves you of any responsibility for mistakes.  I find that makes me less stressed.
If I mess up, it's their fault for not training me.  A fact that can (if necessary) be argued in court.


I hope you find something to enjoy, a little something to look forward to.  It's out there, don't close your mind to that possibility.

12: 52 am here as I type this.  Just woke up from heat coma after resting from game on Saturday.  Had a great time despite the sun trying to kill me.  RPK ran with the Drum just fine (still shoots like *suitcase* and speedsofter with hpa tapped ar-9's outshoot me) but not having to carry anything but the replica was a nice change of pace for most of the day.  Had another player I remember from previous games that could not get his gbbr working right and other misfortunes, so I loaned him my ak105 for the rest of the time he played.  He loved it and kept saying it was slick, which made me smile since I was sure it wasn't going to work well having just changed the spring and one shim section on it recently (and the general gremlin curse all my stuff has).  I ended up using it towards the end of the day and getting a few more kills (even against one of the hosts who became my shot trading partner for the last two games).

Not sure I can handle another Summer game like that though, took a lot out of me despite my efforts of hydration prior and during it.

So I finally decided to order a Flux Brace for my NotGlock.

Then I found them on AliExpress.

Only 10% cheaper.

I can overpay 10 quid or so, I think. So all in all, I managed to find them and place an order (on CRW) so that's a good thing.

Well, I went and purchased a personal vehicle... First in 30 years... And still two-wheeled. A Chinese SuperSoco TC electric motorcycle in the 3kW power. that means it's classed as a moped. It's DARN lot of fun, even if I got it just today and didn't do a long ride to start off. And it's stylish as heck in the light brown and what they caal Vintage Green, which is just about as close to classic DARK British Racing Green as you can get things off the shelf.

Got out to play today despite everything going on.  RPK still not really performing like I wish it would but it did some work for suppression.  Sumpftarn suit worked somewhat well due to the field being mostly brown (no snow here yet).  May have not had the best day out there but getting to play the day before I turn 29 is about the best I can ask for these days.

I only wanted the hedgehog, but couldn't get one from the local shops. Hordes of the carrot family themselves still left, but all the new 2020 characters went very quickly.

Loads of these hedgehogs in my local Aldi.  You want me to get one for you?

Funny thing: I bought a knockoff MH1 sight on AliExpress, ordered a rechargeable lithium battery for it seeing how it's supposed to be recharged with an USB cable, mobile charger, whatever, plugged it in... and discovered it has a secondary battery that actually works.

To be entirely honest, the internals don't inspire confidence, as you can see inside and it's mostly empty, but hey. At least it looks somehow and allowed itself to be adjusted.
