  1. Watching Sword Art Online. 5 Episodes in, so far its really good.

    1. Eppy

      Damn right it is :) I got them through the SAO arc so all the have left is the 2nd half with AFO

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Its a good anime. I really liked the SAO arc. *nod*

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Out of the two I honestly enjoyed the SAO arc more. AFO kinda fell flat since there was no more beat the game or die mentality to it (still good though).

  2. I need more sleep. Work is so annoying. At least tomorrow is friday.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Haha. Yeah, that ends up being the case for me sometimes.. but staying up late for me now is 11:30pm. lmao. *feels like an old man* XD

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Pfft, try sleeping during the day like I do. I'm lucky to get 5 hours of sleep between the neighborhood children screaming (school really should be all year round) and the sunlight (curse you sunlight, I will find a way to do away with you). Plus at least it's Friday for you, it's my Tuesday :(

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Good luck with that. I don't think I could do third shift. Your sleep schedule sounds like my brothers. He works from 9pm to 6am and sleeps during the day and his weekends start sunday night. And I agree about school. It should be year round. *nod*

  3. I got my new Smoker assembled tonight. After a good cleaning, it'll be ready for its first bbq this saturday. Pulled pork and chicken.. Mmmmm. I plan on doing a large blog update this weekend. :D

    1. Sabe

      Sabe

      I do a bit of smoking during the summer... and had the same problem last year. The best solution I found was to add a separate coal pan under my water pan, that way it was using it's own heat source, and keeping the water at a more stable temp. Still had to add more water every hour, though...:(

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thanks for the suggestion. I made some modifications to my smoker last weekend, but I haven't had a chance to try using it again. I added a new thermometer, a damper to the bottom to allow me to control airflow, and 3 bolts to the charcoal pan to place a grate on so the ash doesn't choke out the air flow.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I was also using royal oak lump charcoal.. turns out the lump charcoal was burning very hot and fast, especially since I couldn't restrict air flow. Also, the lump really added a strong smoke flavor. Way too much. So I'll be trying out kingsford blue briquettes next time. Next time I use the smoker, I'll take pictures to upload so you can see what it looks like.

  4. I hate UPS. I ordered a new smoker off of Amazon.. where did my package get delivered to? My neighbors porch.. and the box looks like it was kicked, opened and retaped closed. The grill is fine tho, but I bitched at UPS.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      The only thing I can think of is my Grandmother didn't hear the knock at the door when he delivered it so he decided to leave it with our neighbors instead of leaving it by the door like he usually does (must of been a new postal driver). He better not fuck up with the next one because I will be royally pissed if my rightstuf order isn't here when it's supposed to be.

      Sadly you can't be nice with them anymore, they take it as a sign that you'll let them do whate...

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      ...ver they want with your package. Thankfully I haven't run into that problem with our UPS driver yet or I'd be raising holy hell as well.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yep, they force people to be asses to them, because if we're not, nothing gets fixed. The last time I called and b*tched at UPS was a year ago when they left the 26 inch HDTV I ordered on my neighbors back porch. That tv was shipped in its original package. Aside from the mailing address on it, my neighbor would have thought the TV fairy came and dropped off a present for them. -_- After that, they found my house again for the next 6 months.

  5. Almost done with Tomb Raider. I wanted to finish it before I moved onto another game. So much fun. :D

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I loved it. I think its one of the best single player games I've played in years. GW2 looks like it has good potential.. but the controls are drastically different from GW1. I got into a demo during a free weekend, impressive looking game, but I think it'd probably play better with a controller considering the amount of moving and dodging involved.

    2. Dubird

      Dubird

      My FFXI guild pretty much all moved to GW2, and I really want to play with them again. ^_^; One of them said that the PC controls are not that hard to get the hang of if you're used to playing on PC, so that's a good sign. Just need to find the money for it. ><

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah. Thats cool then. I miss the click to move options of Guild Wars 1. :\

  6. So busy this weekend. I don't think I accomplished much, but it was all time consuming. The garden looks great and we have a new fire pit! :D

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Once you start playing your new star wars games, you wont accomplish anything! XD

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lol. My new games along with overtime at work.. I'll be busy again. ^_^;

  7. I might buy the KOTOR games. $3 a piece on steam this weekend.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The Jedi Knight games are amazing... well I never played the 1st one. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy are very very good games. Way ahead of their time in saber combat. If those games are in that package. I recommend it. They are no where near as long as KOTOR, but they are action packed, and the story of Kyle Katarn is another favorite of mine.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ohhh.. interesting. All three of the jedi knight games are in that game package.. hmmm.. I'll have to check them out. :D

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I got KOTOR 1 & 2. :D

  8. Google forced me to get a Google+ account because I logged into youtube yesterday. Youtube keeps harassing me to use my real name, I say no and the only way to keep that is to save my username preferences which auto-creates a Google+ account. wtf google.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      If anyone wants to add me as a friend on there go ahead. I have no idea what my url is.. looks like goole.com/usr/0041a5s6f5??!?!? or some crap. -_-

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      Is it Sledgestone or something else?

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Sledgstone... *checks google+* oh yeah, you found me. :P

  9. I need new lenses for my glasses. I swear my left eye is not focusing correctly at all.. Damn eye strain headaches all the time now. -_-

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. So I ended up getting new lenses. I might try contacts at some point. Glasses don't bother so much considering that I'm nearsighted. If I couldn't focus on objects at arm length, I'd have to wear contacts because I couldn't imagine only being able to focus through the small field of vision my glasses offer.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      I need glasses too but it's cheaper if I pick em up from India.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It'd probably be cheaper if I buy my lenses online, but I like having a place I can go to get free adjustments and nose pieces.

  10. Had a great weekend hanging out with Godgrave. ^_^

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. It was a great weekend. ;)

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      I almost forgot my headphones and iPod *thumbsup* but I did forget my belt >_>'

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm wearing your belt right now. ;)

      *stops holding in my gut*

      *listens as your belt stretches and groans under the strain* XD

  11. I need some Death Wish coffee. :coffee:

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Damn smilies no work on status. >:o

  12. Such a busy weekend. Need sleep. =_=

  13. Tomb Raider is a lot of fun. ^_^

    1. Pchan

      Pchan

      And it's mighty hard (FOR ME) : p ... it's hard not to get a hard-on, I mean.

  14. I almost have my blog completely fixed. I neglected fixing all my attachments since the conversion. I only have about 5 entries left to fix. Once I get my categories back in place I will have to recategorize my entries and tag them. It took me almost 2 hours yesterday. x_x

    1. Pchan

      Pchan

      Sounds like a lotta work.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It was. I had to recreate all the thumbnails too, which ended up duplicating all blog attachment images. I had about 60 entries with attachments in them. I had to delete all the old duplicates and then re-insert the images back into the correct positions in my entries. At least I'm almost done now. ^_^

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I finally finished my blog categories / tags, etc. That was so time consuming. Now I can focus on snack reviews and recipes again. ^_^

  15. Sriracha sauce is awesome! *drenches my pizza in it*

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm pouring this stuff on everything! *poured it on my baked potato* :P

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      Just don't pour it in your coffee XD

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yeah, that wouldn't taste right at all. :P

  16. I have 3 more snack reviews to post. *has too much junk food*

  17. Season finale of Continuum is on tonight.

    1. Kite

      Kite

      cant wait for season 2, hard to find decent sci-fi,

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I think season 2 is going to start next month.. but syfy channel here only said "Season 2 is coming soon" I hope they try and keep it current with the initial Canada airing.

  18. I've been wating Fairy Tail tonight.. catching up on some episodes. The grand magic games arc is great. :D

    1. Kite

      Kite

      i stopped just after the time skip. As the next arc was non cannon, and incomplete, is the magic games arc complete, and I might continue watching the anime, I generally watch anime in chunks,. otherwise so little is done per episode, it is border line insanity trying to watch one a week, Naruto for example has been in the same arc for about 18 months (ninja war) 1 ep a week covers to little ;p

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats what we do. If its filler we skip it. Then we wait until we have about 10 or so episodes to watch. We're all caught up on Fairy Tail now. 7 episodes yesterday and another 7 tonight. I have a feeling the anime will catch up to the manga at some point soon tho, considering they are both on the same magic games arc.

    3. Pchan

      Pchan

      I stopped reading and to good reason. For instance, the last Erza fight in the manga and the way it ended was hotchpotch. Those big boobs are enticing enough for me to continue watching. I have One Piece for that and FT picks a lot from One Piece anyway.

  19. I have a couple new hooks / mods I'm going to test out this weekend. A few extra features. ;)

  20. My internet upload speed sucks ass. It took me 1 hour and 10 minutes to upload my files. wtf time warner.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I can download that in only a couple minutes, but uploading is pure crap. If it was only 1 file it would have probably uploaded faster, but it was almost 6,000 files.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      Change that router XD

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nah.. The router is ok.. My upload is only 1.0 Mbit/s and with 2 cell phones and a couple computers accessing the internet all the time, my upload was even worse than that. :\

  21. I got a small bottle of Crown Royale Maple to try out.. I'm not really caring for the flavor. :\

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      *drinks some Canadian LTD* j/k. XD

      I got a bottle of Gentlemen Jack that I'm going to try out in a little bit. I think my next whiskey to try out will be Knobb Creek. :D

      I don't think I've seen Honey Jack anywhere. But theres a lot of booze at Halinan's that I haven't tried yet.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      I like watching Samurai Jack, great soundtrack too.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. I guess you must have had a few drinks too. XD

  22. I need a day off. -_-

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Take a sick day! Don't you get sick days?

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      I get 5 sick days but only if I'm sick. And only 10 regular days off. So I try to club the 5 with the 10 to give me 3 weeks, if I plan to go visit Mumbai.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That sounds good. ^_^

  23. New Walking Dead tonight!

    1. Kite

      Kite

      after a long break, i was expected something more, it was a god episode, but I kinda felt it needed more

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Same with me. I didn't care for the woodbury scene with Andrea rallying the group there. She so easily talked everyone down. If the governor was dead she could have just taken over. wtf.

  24. I hate winter... Friday snow forecast "We are thinking snowfall will be in the 5-15" range and will further re-evaluate when new computer guidence arrives."

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Tonight's forecast? A FREEEEEEZE is coming!

  25. Puppy Bowl is on! :D
