Nice! Dino's are best tribe in Ixalan!
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!

Yeah, they're pretty sweet.

Powered out 245 pound squats like it ain't even a problem today in the gym. Might have something to do with my 315 pound max - though I may have to test for a new max squat weight.
I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!

Got Path of Fire for Guild Wars 2 a couple days ago and I'm having far, FAR too much fun carving a bloody swath through Balthazar's army.

Got my student aid refund, today.  Got a new shirt, some pyjama shorts, and a sleep mask for napping.  All were good purchases!

Congratulations!
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Lunch: Eggplant linguine with mozzarella.

Damn that was good.

My personal trainer Mitch says I am on track to be just like him in time for Summer - basically 220 pounds accounting for him being 6'4 and 260 pounds and me being 6'0.

Really a great thing to hear. I've always wanted to look like Mitch.

I helped restore democracy to Vancouver.

Longer version: A year or two ago, the Vancouver School Board (popularly elected by voters in the city) was fired by the provincial government for failing to pass a balanced budget and replaced with a single provincially-appointed administrator.

This year, a by-election was called to elect a new board to finish the balance of the term. (Also, one spot on City Council recently became vacant, and we also voted to fill that seat.)

And I just got home from voting. (One of the candidates is a post-op transwoman who is a former sex worker. She used to run a brothel for transwomen sex workers, and complained when it was shut down as a "common bawdy house," because there "wasn't anything common about it." I've never not voted for her--except maybe once when I voted a partisan centre-left slate to keep the right-wing party from controlling the various boards again--and while she hadn't run for a while because she realized her history was too controversial, apparently she's decided that society's changed enough that her past isn't a detriment any more. I hope she gets elected; I think her point of view will be a valuable one on the school board.)

Actually happened 2 days ago, but by some miracle the SNES themed special edition of the New 3DSXL didn't sell out immediately, even though Nintendo seems to only make 3 of any given product and then never make any more ever again, (which kind of implies the 3DS is dying, probably a combination of the Switch sort of making it obsolete and everyone getting sick of re-buying a DS every couple of years).  So I managed to get myself one, consolation for not being able to get a SNES mini, and have been playing the shit out of Diddy's Kong Quest AKA the best game ever made and I will fight you if you disagree.

Some might say spending nearly £180 on an obsolete console just for the privilege of buying a 20+ year old game for the 3rd time in my life to play it on a device that's painted to look like a squished version of another obsolete console is madness.  But I say fuck you, it's Diddy's Kong Quest and my DS looks like a SNES.

So... it looks like today marks 30 years since I got shoved headfirst into this world.

I have more pleasant things to focus my attention, time, and resources on than Gamergate or the Gamergate thread, such as pouring hot sauce in my eyes, lemon juice enemas, and imagining being eaten alive by fire ants.
