Random Friday Ramblings…23 December 2016!

It’s Friday…whoo-hoo!!! I always love Fridays, whether I’m working or not – go figure, eh? Anyway, I just put in my annual calendar order today, along with some necessary, much-needed workout gear. It’s been a while since I bought workout clothes, and what’s really funny is that my workout gear doubles as ideal gaming gear! So, to bore you all to tears, here is what I wear whilst working out or gaming…and hard-core gamers know that an intense PvP gaming session, or a mindless XP grind, is a workout in and of itself, LOL!

DISCLAIMER: I receive no compensation for the products that I use, so this is strictly my opinion only! Would I love to get some free gear and do a review? Sure! But, I’m not on Facebook – that’s why I don’t get free products. I pay real money for what I use, LOL

😎

First off, I prefer Tommie Copper clothing. Comfort, durability, fit, and it looks good on me – those are the reasons I like it. Other fitness brands just look ugly to me, and seem to be made for anorexics who do nothing but spinning classes. I do circuit training and yoga, mainly. My elliptical machine is for fall and winter, or rainy days in the spring and summer, but I enjoy getting out on my bicycle and riding on the beach. I’m still on the lookout for a decent rowing machine, too – almost got one at the same time I bought my weight machine, but it was already sold out…so, I’ll keep looking!

Anyway, the workout gear is this:
-Gloves
-Compression wrist supports
-Comfort / support top
-Back brace (upper-body workout days)
-Compression shorts
-Knee supports (or full-leg compression for lower-body / leg exercises)
-Compression ankle supports
-Vibram(R) Five-fingers(T) shoes

For gaming, I wear the gloves and the wrist supports, a t-shirt with a smart-ass saying on it (for proper gaming saltiness), and jeans or yoga pants. Others can schlub about in house-coats or sweats…not me! Comfortable doesn’t need to be slovenly, ROFL

XD

I planned on writing up a schedule for my live gaming broadcasts, but it’s impossible to do with such a temperamental computer. Actually, the computer isn’t temperamental – either the Twitch program decides that it doesn’t want to work some days, or the ESO game itself is! There are always random crashes that happen whilst gaming, especially during ‘special events’ such as the ongoing ‘New Life Festival,’ but they’re expected. When one has been gaming for as long as I have, bugs and crashes are a given – so, we just roll with it and wait out the inevitable patches! Speaking of special stuff…player housing is FINALLY coming to ESO, and I can’t wait – I’m ready to check it out on the Public Test Server (PTS) when it gets loaded there in January! It should be interesting, to say the least. Below is a short video showing some of the houses that will be available.

Well, that’s it from me for now – time for some gaming! If you want to watch, click on the ‘Multimedia Links’ at the top of my blog and find the Twitch channel…if it says ‘LIVE,’ that means I’m online and the programs are cooperating with me, LOL

Otherwise, enjoy these three selected songs…happy Friday, all! Oh, while I’m on the subject of music – please don’t go reading something into the songs that I play. People get all bent out of shape or butthurt over my music, when I’m simply playing what I want to hear, when I want to hear it, if I’ve been inspired by reading or writing! I don’t do hidden meanings – now, if I do a theme-related post, that’s another thing entirely! Talk at you all later…

Friday Fun Time!!! 2 December 2016

I needed to bring the smile back to my face, and I am – especially since the faint-hearted and feeble-minded ones are unfollowing me! I don’t need or want the bad sort of stalkers, so it’s good that they’re going away. The only stalkers that I like are the ones on my ‘friends’ lists!

Anyway, this post is strictly and solely for my own amusement…so don’t you dare laugh! Don’t do it…don’t crack a smile or anything! You’d better not laugh, damnit! DON’T LAUGH, I SAY!!!

XD

Storms On the Shore!!!

Hey all! Sorry for the late post, but unstable weather has been causing minor issues with the electricity. Also, my computer has been giving me a hassle, which is what frustrated the hell out of me yesterday – dealing with the computer techs has been a major exercise in futility! They refuse to acknowledge that there is some flawed component in my computer, which is causing the crashing and freezing issues I experience while gaming – whether I attempt to record a gaming session or live-stream, or not. I’m currently using what is supposed to be our ‘backup’ computer, and it’s running far better than mine is! Guess what? It even records and streams gaming sessions just fine – so there is obviously an issue in my main rig.

I was all ready to post a spleen-venting, expletive-filled, post of hatred towards condescending douchebags…but, waking up to the sound of thunder this morning soothed my mood. I will do a post about my ineffective dealings with the computer techs, but will try to do so in an amusing way! I’ve been inspired by a couple of bloggers who inject much humour in their writings and posts, and wanted to try to put a funny spin on something that has been exceptionally annoying and frustrating. I do my best to have backup plans in case things go wrong…it helps to be prepared for any possible eventuality.

The morning thunderstorms were very nice to wake up to…although, I understand that while I was enjoying the flashes of lightning and feeling, and hearing, the roll of thunder, the coastal town of Manzanita, down in Oregon, had a fairly sizeable tornado! The remnants of a typhoon are the cause, to my knowledge. Still, I love thunderstorms and wild weather…I’m what you would call a ceraunophile, LOL!

The wind is starting to kick up again, so I’ll keep this post short and sign off. It’s going to be a wild weekend! Hopefully the power stays on…I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Also, I hope that I can get some nice shots of the ocean after tomorrow’s storm blows through! The waters will look awesome, I think; I stepped out on the porch earlier, after everything had finally calmed down, and just listened to the roaring of the ocean…it was nice.

Also, I wanted to note that tomorrow is the night of the Hunter’s Full Moon (in Aries, no less!), as well as the Perigean Spring Tide…the overcast skies will prevent me from seeing the moon, but its effects are definitely being felt!
