SHINY & EXCITING NEW CHALLENGE INTRO: 

From [REDACTED], unknown date and era.

This challenge shall also be known as 'or how Rurik learned to stop worrying and took his gigantic mirth back,' because I've been focused for too long on my gigantic melancholies and things around here feel and look too goddamn grim.  As they say, and by they I mean me just this moment, in a room full of the sane, it's the insane man who is truly free... and my freedom means everything to me.

Plus this challenge will take us up to the release of Aquaman, and Jason Momoa should be an inspiration for us all!

Y'know, this actually seems like a pretty good way to do things right about now. Might have to give it a try...

 

(and I might have to finally finish the game... after years of owning it...)

Challenge Journal:  November 20, 2018.

New challenge time!  Happy belated #MomoaMonday, folks!  Rurik is still alive!  Kind of fallen off the CrossFit bandwagon these past few weeks, less than one class per week lately, but I'm proud to acknowledge I've brought my attendance back up to 5/per lately and have been tracking my nutrition and meals again!  See if we can't turn this trainwreck around a bit.  Also talking to women again in a potential-romantic-entanglement sort of way rather than the usual blatant promiscuousness that has pervaded the year.  Maybe a date will be my social activity goal this week?  Let's not get too excited just yet though.

In other news, The Last Kingdom just released its third season on Netflix and I've been binging since the gym, so that shall be today's "Be Happy" session!  As for a moment of frivolity, I present the following:

Friday night update time (got lazy, saved it until Saturday morning), unexpected because I had a date planned - but Fate is Inexorable.

Week is going strong. Tracking hasn't been perfect, but I'm more or less staying on top of my daily macros.  I'm doing a'ight.

If you haven't heard of The Overheard Press, it was a CrossFit satire page similar in vein to The Onion but seems to have gone defunct recently.  At any rate, I had saved a Pin about an article satirizing a made-up article about an athlete hospitalized due to slipping on his own beard oil...

Yeah, but can you do it while destroying a building (and making it look easy)? :D

 

 

Great casting call to pick Momoa as Aquaman, imo. Making an unpopular comic book character popular is definitely a lot easier if you cast someone with as much natural cool and charisma as Momoa. B)

Brilliant guy to interview as well. He can make statements that would come over as smug by anyone else, and he just makes them sound confident.

Could you already swim well before taking on Aquaman, or did you need to take lessons?

- Dude, I'm from Hawaii. ;)

Do you look good in your Aquaman costume?

I *always* look good. :)

 

Nice way to slam an interviewer that asks dumb questions. :D

Let's break this weekend down... Saturday morning Oly achieved, then went into the city for a date (social activity ☑), met at a fancy hotel. Dined in the lounge James Bond-style but dressed like in my usual Sons of Anarchy, Vancouver chapter hipster chic attire, stuck to a marginally healthy meal option of pork belly bowl with extra pickled roots (Mindful Art of Nutritional Alchemy™ ☑).  Departed after the standard breakfast affair of eggs/bacon/some of the best breakfast potatoes I've ever had and spent the morning/afternoon Treating Yoself for myself, new shoes (cognac leather sneakers which will be getting the rakish Johnny Depp blue laces treatment), a new waffle Henley (cuz I totally needed another Henley shirt...), a Triumph motorcycles t-shirt like I've always wanted, and a bunch of stuff for the house like a living room rug, some wall art, and a shower curtain.  Oh, and candles (session of "Be Happy" dialed up to 11, mfers)!!

If yIt was a pretty solid week all around.  Plus I actually updated 3/7 days! (☑)
