Chad: How many Switch games do you have, Stu?

 

Stu: Yes.

 

 

Honestly its that way for a friend of mine here. He can’t work cause he’s the spectrum of autistic where he doesn't have the temperament to hold one but he has his own Switch his mom and sister bought him for his birthday last year.
 

So anytime he’s like “hey, do you have this, if so can I borrow it?” Or “Do you mind if I borrow this?” I just reply “yes. next time we all hang out lll bring it over to you” (he lives with his sister and brother in-law who I also consider very good friends). I’ll let him borrow any physical game as long as he wants as long as I’m not playing it.
 

He actually asked me if I was going to get Monster Hunter Rise and if I was if I’d play with him if he was able to get a copy. (His sister and brother in-law give him a weekly allowance) I told him yes because I am genuinely excited to play Rise. I plan on surprising him by buying him a copy  

 

After I first got to know him I gave him my vanilla PS4 along with any games I had doubled dipped for on the Switch. Which made him super happy as he’s a big JRPG fan like I am and that’s almost the entirety of what I gave him. It made him and his sister really happy. She wouldn’t stop texting me about happy it made him when I dropped all the stuff off for  him that night. I do the same thing with the PS4 as well. Any game I’m not currently playing I’ll let him borrow. 
 

I have no issues giving stuff away when I know it’s going to a good home where it will be loved and appreciated.

Funny thing is that I just realized that I have a somewhat decent library of Switch titles considering I have only owned the console for about a two weeks 😂.

 

Today's purchase:

I know, it's terrible. but it's such a niche piece at a price that I couldn't pass it up. 

 

It's part of a two pack that came with Chun-Li (using an Arcee mold).  I appreciate that in some of the promo shots they tried to approximate the moves.

If I can get the M. Bison X Megatron, I'm good.

So, I've run into insomnia problems yet again. I'll sleep for about 4-5 hours initially after going to bed the first time, be up for 2-3 hours; then sleep the rest of the time. 

Planning on seeing the doc very soon about this, because this is bullshit.

about the same over here.  I don't have to worry and can sleep whenever, but this might be a problem and I'd like to see what's up.

Took me a second, but is it tranformer Ken? With a gun? Or is it Mr. Streetfighter? Still has a gun. 

 

Honestly, Street Fighter 6 should have more guns. Really shake it up a bit.

Streetformers: Martial Artists in Disguise is the stuff of nightmares.

Do you not remember the 90’s Marvel transformers? Hulk turned into a tank. Iron man turned into a jeep or a jet. Venom, wolverine and the punisher turned into sports cars.
 

I think spider man turned into a motor cycle? iirc There were juggernaut and Sabretooth ones too but I don’t remember what they transformed into. 
 

here’s a couple pictures of them (these are not mine)

Not really, I just remember Punisher having a penis cannon because every top 10 toy video on YouTube thinks I haven't somehow seen this yet. But now they will tell me, while pimping Raycons.

My mother passed yesterday.

 

We knew this was coming; she had stage 4 cancer that wasn't going to get better. As such, I'm not taking this as hard as I thought I would. Still hurts though.

 

And I'm about ready to body any fucking idiot who refuses to wear a mask at this point. This pandemic made everything about going to see her in these last 2 grueling months hard. She couldn't have visitors at the hospital except for super special occasions (like signing power of attorney paperwork). She had to go to a nursing home where one could only "visit" by talking at her through the window. When she went into the hospital again, they had NO visitors. She ended up dying in that hospital with no family there to comfort her at least.

Fuck, I'm sorry man. 😭

After a cup of coffee, some breakfast and a long hot shower I finally feel like a human.
 

I had the worst night of sleep last night that I’ve had in a really long time. I kept waking up with hot flashes. My sheet was drenched in sweat when I woke up.  My entire left side (the side with neuropathy) was constantly waking me up due from them hurting so bad and I woke up to a very powerful taste of vomit in my mouth but I did not vomit at any point in the night.

It's a Street Fighter X Transformers crossover figure. It uses the character Hot Rod's mold painted to look like Ken. There is no other character that would have worked IMO.

Hot Rod is a loser, Rodimus Prime is alright though.


But since this is specifically Hot Rod, by the laws of science, you think Ken is a loser. 

A legion of Brazilians will angrily march on you now Dandy J, doing unsafe fierce uppercuts in the streets and full screen tatsumakis. Fear the horde.

 

Wait you aren't DangerousJ, since when have we had two Transformers members? I vote they fight to the death.

I missed the start of the inaugural ceremony and didn't know Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem. Why is it that I could pick Lady Gaga out just by her eyes 🤣.

Because if it was Sia it would be the lack of eyes.

It would also be Katy Perry if you saw a look of mad desperation as they escorted her out for trespassing.

Making banana nut bread booooiiii! 
 

I’m likely going to make Chocolate Zucchini Bread tonight or Friday before my sister gets here. Also, I know that sounds disgusting but it’s actually hella bomb. My sister use to make it all the time when her and I shared an apartment.

Lada Gaga could still get bent over the couch without hesitation.  I vaguely recall she has some nasty new tattoos though, so that detracts from her overall score, unfortunately.

ha, I just remembered she showed up at an awards show (MTV, I think) wearing a "meat dress", and had Madonna hold her meat purse for her.  It would've been funny if she appeared with the infamous meat-dress for such a formal affair like the Inauguration.

....hahaha what if someone showed up with a dookie-dress or jacket?  That would be gold; I'd pass out from laughing at that visual.  It would be quite difficult to make clothing out of shit though, unlike meat.  The shit would just keep falling apart, even if the consistency is relatively solid...maybe this would be fixed if you use a fishnet type of setup to keep things together...or like a body-stocking thing.  haha imagine the flies...

 

Hearing those marches reminded me of my old college band days, actually... I think that was "National Emblem" I heard being played 2 or 3 times.

I mean her eyes are pretty stunning. 

 

Still waiting on that big move Vega was going on about. 

Probably still waiting  for 45 to descend from the heavens riding a unicorn.

 

And I've always thought Lady Gaga was a delicious piece of ass, but even moreso when she seems more natural than trying to do wacky fashion statements (i.e. A Star is Born)

My entire house smells like banana nut bread and I love it. 
 

im making Parmesan and ranch crusted chicken breasts for dinner later. I originally was going to do brown rice with sautéed squash and the left over zucchini from my bread I changed me mind. Gunna just do mashed potatoes and peas. 
 

ether after dinner or tomorrow I’m going to make the zucchini loaf....or cookies.

tortillas made from scratch. I cannot make them like my mother's but I am trying. 

This is me when I make naan. Our neighbor back in Seattle would make it all the time. I’ve tried to make naan several times and while good it just doesn’t hit the same as the neighbors. Likely cause I’m making it in a skillet and not in a tandoor, which is the traditional way of making it.

Not to anyone specifically, but I wonder why people say "made from scratch". I mean as opposed to what, Hamburger Helper?

 

Obviously you want to use quality ingredients, whereas scratch kind of connotates bad or missing.

 

Usually people do just say they're making something or made something, but some people in some instances mention scratch. I just don't quite know when those situations are or if I'm missing something on that.

I’d rather make the pasta hamburger helper is offering from scratch than eating a shit ton of sodium based preservatives and extremely questionable quality of “ingredients”
 

this goes for pretty much anything to he honest. I’d rather spend the extra bucks to make something from scratch than buy boxed or canned shit. Cause I know it’ll be quality and not questionable. 
 

ive been baking and cooking hella since March and the difference between boxed/canned/premade and making it yourself is night and day. Making it yourself is infinitely better. 


I won’t even buy taco seasoning or premade seasoning in general anymore. I’d rather just use the spices I have to make it myself. 
 

tl;dr I want to know and be in control of what I put into my body.

Right but...that's the thing, that's just called cooking. It's Hamburger Helper that's the anomaly.

Cooking from scratch and just "cooking" can mean totally different things. Anybody can "cook"  a meal, doesn't mean it's from scratch. 

 

I fail to see the confusing part 

Exactly. Anyone can cook a box of hamburger helper or heat up a can of spaghetti-o’s. That’s “cooking” in the lowest definition of it.

Also, parmesean and ranch chicken? Wtf? 

 

I'm surprised and aroused all at once, please continue whispering these sweet nothings in my ear.... 

hahah. Bro it’s super easy to make. 
 

ranch powder, Parmesan (buy an actual small brick of it and grate it yourself. Makes a world of difference) and your choice of crumbled bread binder (I used ritz crackers since I didn’t have panko), smash and whisk it together. 
 

dip the chicken (I used thighs) in 2 tablespoons of melted butter then coat with the crust. Put them on a baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes on 375

I always use egg whites to bread my chicken.... Never even thought of butter. 

 

Pls believe I will be stealing this information from you and attempting this recipe this weekend 👍

You could probably use egg to cut down on fat content, yeah. I’m still kind of a novice at cooking still so I just follow the recipe to the T.
