Freetalk Friday 1

  • Quote

Post by deleted_user »

Well it's actually Sunday, but no alliteration then.

First in a maybe series of, "hey, what's happened from then?"

I'll start: we cleaned our apartment today and sorted through 6 months worth of mail. My roommate's gecko was unleashed while we blared Mac Demarco. Our $400 weight set is getting good use, and the rain is about to come. My $60 AC unit has died, and I'm thinking how best to dispose of it. It also (is supposed to) heats.

My aoe skills feel at a 2-year low, but it's distracting, so they gets used.

Read any good books as of late?

I have to choose one to read concurrent with my sister, for discussion. I need ideas.

Raising Cane's is sublime. The sauce is secret and incredible, the chicken cooked and crispy, combined it's an orgasm of the mouth and mind buddy buds, n' not too harsh on the walllet. When they opened the Omaha restaurant the line was into the street and for good reason. Then I drove to IOWA for Cane's quicker, and it was always worth it.

It's just a "mom and pop" before it's become a McDonald's. My college RA kept Cane's drink cups bordered about his room shelves like a King, and he was one. Kaiser! Is there fired chicken in France? Better hope be!

I’m wearing booty shorts and the night air is an electrifying 59 degrees (freedom units)

not even hungry, just enjoying waking around and forcing my body to produce its own heat. I have a 24h fitness membership and I couldn’t go to the pool for a quick swim and sauna tbh

Don't know what sort of books you and your sister are into, but I've been reading this one called All Measures Short of War: The Contest for the 21st Century and the Future of American Power. It's a pretty good overview of recent US foreign policy if you are interested in geopolitics.

What kind of books are you guys into?
Some books i've read/started reading recently are The Art of Loving, The Power of Habit and The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat. I'm also planning on reading 12 Rules for Life from Jordan Peterson. I know it might sound cheesy, but i've recently discovered his video collection on youtube, and i have to say i've rarely had the chance to listen to someone as insightful and knowledgeable as him.
Anyway i wonder what's the scientific explaination of "highs and lows" in AoE skill (applies to a lot of other stuff too). I guess it has to do with concentration, but it's so hard to tell. Sometimes it really feels like you're giving your best and you fail, some other times playing feels so easy and natural.

Grab something now and save it for later? Not sure how you feel about reheated food. Personally, i don't mind it.

What kind though? How does it compare to Chick-fil-A for example? I might try it out since one is near me.

If chick-fil-a is a French 12/10 rush, raising canes is a portuguese 10/10

I tell myself I’m improving my crisis management skills and ability to multi-task whenever I play AOE3.

The Box Combo
4 fried chicken fingers, crinkle-cut fries, Texas Toast, coleslaw, and "Cane's Sauce". Unsweetened black tea as beverage, of which I will only sip on politely, as I want to avoid the caffeine. $9.12

and a nice way to finish my evening

Classic. I hope that's unsweetened tea.

Noob move not substituting the slaw for an extra toast. The price is the same.

"No slaw, extra toast, extra canes sauce" will be with me until I die.
