WhiteGhost: Battle Royale


Recommended Posts

I realized last challenge that I have a lot of conflicting agendas, where in order to do one thing I would have to sacrifice something else.  I decided to try and pit these different agendas against each other in a Professional Wrestling type of format and see who comes out the winner.  So without further ado: let me introduce the contestants by faction:

 

The Heroes:

 

Goku Vive, La Lucha Sigue - Funny Dragon Ball Z Memes (4412x4489), Png Download

Goku - Park Workouts.  I want to try and get to the park to work out 4 times per week

 

S.H.Figuarts - M. Bison - Limited Edition - import from Japan

M. Bison - Gym Workouts.  I want to get to the gym 2 times per week

 

SKYRIM Special Edition: "THE GOURMET" Balagog Gro Nalob (Kill Walkthrough)  - YouTube

The Gourmet - Meal Cooking.  I want to cook at least 25 different meals over the course of the challenge (no repeats)

 

The Heels:

 

PAT FRALEY signed Krang 8x10 Photo * BAS COA * Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  TMNT | eBay

Krang - Mindless phone usage.  I want to limit the amount of time spent playing solitaire and sudoku on my phone.

 

Slimer - Wikipedia

Slimer - Mindless snacking.  I want to limit the consumption of snacks between meals

 

No Face Gif Feels images

No Face - Overeating.  I want to stop eating when I get full

 

Garfield GIFs | Tenor

Garfield - Vegging.  Doing absolutely nothing is an easy state fall into
 

 

Deimos | Assassins creed odyssey, Assassin's creed, Assassins creed artwork

Deimos - Xbox Gaming.  I want to spend less time on the xbox


The Rebels:

 

Mr. Sandman (Character) - Giant Bomb

Mr Sandman - Sleep. I want to get at least 6 hours of sleep per night

 

Stretch Armstrong 7 Inch Figure

Stretch Armstrong - Flexibility. I want to spend at least 10 minutes every day stretching (Pike & Straddle)

 

Defenders of the Earth Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon - Running.  I want to run 100K over the course of the challenge

 

The Shredder - TMNT '87 - Home | Facebook

The Shredder - Home Workouts.  I want to build up basic grease the groove habits for pushups and pullups 

 

The Outsiders:

 

Thom Merrilin (@NotAGleeman) | Twitter

Thom Merrilin - Music Practice.  I want to practice the Ukulele for at least 10 minutes 6 days per week

 

The Incredibles | Official Site | Disney Movies

Mr. Incredible - Quality family time.  I want to spent time each day interacting with my family members beyond just discussing chores & tasks to be done.

 

Friar Tuck Personality Trait Statistics

Friar Tuck - Church habits.  I want to make prayer and scripture study into daily habits

 

Why I Wanted To Be Mr. Clean. How advertising held me in its cold… | by  Robert Cormack | Freethinkr | Medium

Mr. Clean - Housework & Chores.  I want to do better at keeping the house looking like it wasn't hit by a tornado

 

Series - Encyclopedia Brown | Chapter books, Book series, Happy reading

Encyclopedia Brown - Learning.  Read a non-fiction book, maybe watch a TED talk or something.   

 

The Dark Horses:

 

Star Wars Character Profile of Darth Maul

Darth Maul - Tattoo work.  I will be spending a lot of time this challenge getting my sleeve finished

 

Jabberwock GIF by aran-fey | Gfycat

Jaberwock - Social Gaming.  I have a few ongoing D&D campaigns and a weekly gaming sesh with Deffy.  These are socializing events and don't count as gaming 

 

Bowser - Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Bowser - Dessert Making - I love making desserts and have recently started doing it a lot more.  I just need to be careful not to eat too much of what I make

 

Repo Man Titantron HD - YouTube

The Repo Man - Naps.  If I miss my sleep goals, the Repo Man will come to collect.

 

 

 

Here's how this is going to work:  I literally do not have enough time to do all of these things.   The time spent on one thing will necessitate spending less time for something else.   Some of them will probably get eliminated early on but some underdogs may make it through to the end.  

 

My goal is to build up the outsiders and rebels at the expense of the Heels.  It won't be easy, though, because they are some tough folks that don't go down easy.  The Heroes will help because whenever they are on their game, the Heels are significantly weakened.  The dark Horses are going to happen as well, though, which is going to throw things into chaos.  Who will come out victorious in the end?  Stay tuned to find out!!!

Uh, I edited it to divide social gaming from just playing by myself.  But honestly, when I play enough xbox each week that I run the risk of running afoul of overtime laws, I probably should cut down a bit.

What a cool challenge idea! Do you have any favourites that you'd want to win? Or Heels that you think will cause most problems?:D 

I would be really pleased to see Thom Merrilin and Friar Tuck do well, but I really want The Rebels to shine.  If I can get most of them to place well the challenge will be a success.     As for the Heels, Krang and Slimer are the folks that are going to be doing the most damage.  Oh, and the Repo Man, but he will only show up and wreak havoc if the Sandman isn't pulling his weight.

It’s a WhiteGhost challenge!!

It is indeed! :) 

 

--------------------------

 

Yesterday was a holiday here (Dragon Boat Festival, aka 端午节) so Goku had the day off. The Sandman was there in the morning doing a promo until after 10am.  

 

Next up was Mr Incredible for some family time as we went out to eat with the in-laws, one of Ghostess's cousins and his family.  We went to a fish head restaurant and shared a giant (4kg) fish head.  I definitely ate way too much.  (Hmm, I should probably make a character for overeating...)

 

When we got back I spent a bunch of time trying to finalize this challenge and get it up.  Once that was done tag team time with Deimos on for some xbox together with Slimer as I ate several of the mint brownies I made last challenge. Luckily a last minute challenge came through from Mr. Incredible when Ghostlet wanted to go downstairs and play badminton in the yard.  When we came back in it was time for The Gourmet to make his appearance and I made salmon steaks again.  The vegetable shop was all out of broccoli so we just had cucumbers with it instead

fRsmD2O.jpg

 

Mr. Clean made an appearance as I washed the dishes and then got the living room in some semblance of order.  

 

Finally Krang tried to get in the ring but was ousted by Stretch Armstrong as I did about 10 minutes of stretching and then he got further stomped on by Encyclopedia Brown as I picked the book I want to read for the challenge.  I missed my bedtime by 30 minutes due to the reading, so I can see The Sandman discussing with the Repo man about how to sabotage Encyclopedia Brown next time he tries to get in the ring.

 

Winners for the day were The Gourmet, Slimer, Deimos, The Sandman, Stretch Armstrong, Mr Incredible, Mr Clean, and Encyclopedia Brown.

I get that.  I have probably spent more time playing Super Street Fighter II Turbo than all other games combined so I absolutely know where you are coming from.  That said, you can also choose to play M. Bison as a player, at which point does he not then become the hero of the game?

Not sure what else you could be thinking of.  Just a giant fish head on a platter

Week Zero, Day 2

 

Round 1

Goku Vive, La Lucha Sigue - Funny Dragon Ball Z Memes (4412x4489), Png DownloadVSRepo Man Titantron HD - YouTube

Goku vs The Repo Man

I crawled back into bed after dropping Ghostlet off at school and really wanted to stay there, but I pulled myself out in time to get a park workout in.  I pulled out my old pull workout from a couple of years ago that I have been meaning to update but never have

Spoiler

 

The workout consists of AMRAIFL (As many reps as I feel like) of the following:

Single arm dead hangs

Tuck front lever lifts

jump (or band assisted) muscleups

pike back lever lifts

Archer pullups

commando pullups

One arm (assisted) chin ups

Tuck front lever pullups

Chest to bar pullups

Back lever pulls

Behind the head pullups

Hanging rows

One arm scapular retractions

One arm rows

tuck front lever rows

clap pullups

L-sit pullups

Inverted dips

Pullouts

Head bangers

typewriters

 

After my pull workout, I had some fun playing around on the bar.  A friend took some videos of it

 

 

 

 

Round 2

Defenders of the Earth Flash GordonVSGarfield GIFs | Tenor

Flash Gordon vs Garfield

I was feeling pretty tired out after the workout, but instead of not doing anything else, I decided to walk my 5k.  Telling myself I am just going to walk it is a trick I play on myself because in the end I usually end up running most of it.  If I tell myself I am going to run most of it from the beginning, though, it sounds to tiring and I usually bail

 

Round 3

Stretch Armstrong 7 Inch FigureVSRepo Man Titantron HD - YouTube

Stretch Armstrong vs The Repo Man

When I got back I really just wanted a nap but instead I did my pike and straddle stretches

 

Round 4

Thom Merrilin vs Deimos

At this point I just wanted to plop down on the couch and play some Valhalla but I rallied and got out the uke and practiced a bunch of songs I had learned a few challenges ago but hadn't looked at since

 

Round 5

I wanted to just sit and do nothing by this point but again I rallied and did a batch of laundry, took out the trash and did some other organizing

 

Round 6

Deimos vs Garfield

By this time it was time to break out the xbox and I played a bit of Valhalla

 

Round 7

The Gourmet vs No-Face

For dinner I made Pork and Youcai stir fry over rice.  I made sure to give myself a smaller portion so that I didn't end up overeating.  It was just the right amount

Round 8

Encyclopedia Brown vs Garfield

After dinner all I wanted to do was veg, but I broke out my book and ended up reading several chapters

 

Round 8

The Incredibles | Official Site | Disney MoviesVSDeimos | Assassins creed odyssey, Assassin's creed, Assassins creed artwork

Mr Incredible vs Deimos

I was getting ready to get back to playing Valhalla when Ghostlet came in and said he was done with his homework and wanted to play with me.  We were both too wiped out to go downstairs into the yard for badminton so we both sat on the couch and played some Diablo 3 together

Fun fact: In the original Japanese version, the final boss was called Balrog (like the Tolkien-esque demon) while the boxer was named M. Bison (as in, Mike Tyson, obviously)

Yeah, I remember reading about that.  Even the game Punch Out had to stop using the name Mike Tyson and apparently renamed the character to Mr. Sandman.  Speaking of which, I think I am going to use that guy for my Sandman character

 

Not going to lie, your challenges are my primary inspo for the structure of this challenge :)

Week 0 Wednesday

 

Round 1

Repo Man Titantron HD - YouTubeVSJabberwock GIF by aran-fey | Gfycat

Repo Man vs Jabberwock

I seriously considered crawling back into bed for a bit before D&D but decided to stay up and socialize (get caught up on NF)

 

Promo

Jabberwock GIF by aran-fey | Gfycat 

I spent most of the morning running my weekday D&D campaign.  The group is currently playing through White Plume Mountain and I am really enjoying the module because it is very different from a typical dungeon crawl.  The random encounters keep things moving but the real challenges come from trying to navigate all of the traps and obstacles in the place.  The writer of the module was deviously creative.  In this episode they had to navigate a slippery spinning kaleidoscope tunnel that was also on fire.

I was channeling @PaulG and decided I wanted to make some Mapo Dofu and broke out the recipe from Serious Eats.  As I was getting ready to make that, Ghostess came home with some fresh fish and shrimp so while she made dinner, I hung out in the kitchen with her and assisted.  It was really hilarious to watch Wraith as she was totally intimidated by a bag of shrimp

After dinner my game had finished downloading so I got back on and played some more Valhalla.  I am about halfway through the Essex arc

I didn't want to stay up gaming too late, and I wanted to make sure I got some stretching in before bed so I shut off the xbox and did a bit of stretching

This video was the best cat-related thing I've seen in weeks. Also, the shrimp reminded me of that fried whole-shrimp recipe you suggested months ago. MUST MAKE.

 

Did you make the mapo tofu??

Great job with the battles so far.  This challenge structure is working really well!   Poor Wraith looked so defeated by the end of that video.

Watching her try to interact with small critters like shrimp, crabs and crawdads is hilarious. :D 

 

I did not.  Our tofu was well past its expiration date so we ended up just throwing it out.  I have some more in the freezer, though, so this will happen at some point in this challenge.

Curious kitty is curious, i love it!

Having a cat has really helped me understand some common cat related sayings like "curiosity killed the cat" and "scaredy-cat"

Thanks, it seems to be working a lot better than most of my recent challenges :)   By the time I had to take the shrimp into the kitchen to cook them, poor Wraith was just sitting a few feet away watching and wouldn't come closer :D

Week Zero Thursday

 

Round 1

Goku Vive, La Lucha Sigue - Funny Dragon Ball Z Memes (4412x4489), Png DownloadVSRepo Man Titantron HD - YouTube

Goku vs Repo Man

I was going to crawl back to bed like I usually do after dropping Ghostlet off, but getting to bed on time the night before paid off and I was feeling pretty good.  I headed over to the park and did a push workout

Spoiler

 

Push workout consisted of AMRAIFL (usually 3-5 reps) of the following

Regular pushups

Clap pushups

Wall assisted handstand pushups

Russian dips

One arm pushups

Pike pushups

Hindu pushups

Cat pushups

Handstand kickups

Tuck Planche dips

Archer pushups

Shoulder press sliders

Single bar dips

Pseudo-planche pushups

back bridge pushups

Korean dips

Plank triceps extensions

Handstand thigh taps

Regular dips

Twist dips

 

 

The pullup bar was broken so I couldn't do any gymnastics stuff

 

Round 2

Flash Gordon and Stretch Armstrong vs Garfield and Deimos

Instead of coming home and either vegging or getting on the xbox, I stayed at the park and ran (ok, mostly walked) 5k and then did my stretching

 

Round 3

When I got back I got my book out and started to read but just wasn't getting into it so I got out my uke instead and practiced that for a half hour.

After I finished my uke practice I was looking at NF and thought about getting caught up but in the end decided to just get the xbox on to play some Valhalla

 

Round 5

SKYRIM Special Edition: "THE GOURMET" Balagog Gro Nalob (Kill Walkthrough)  - YouTubeVSDeimos | Assassins creed odyssey, Assassin's creed, Assassins creed artwork

The Gourmet vs Deimos

I didn't want to get off the xbox and seriously considered just ordering something but I channeled my inner @PaulG again and headed over to Serious eats for a Kung Pao Chicken recipe.  Kenji had 3, so I picked the one that looked like what I wanted and made it.  It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, but I did let the chilis burn just a little.

Round 6

Mr Incredible vs Deimos

After dinner I was getting back on the xbox but Ghostlet finished up his homework so we put on Diablo and played that together until his bed time

 

Round 7

The Incredibles | Official Site | Disney MoviesVSDeimos | Assassins creed odyssey, Assassin's creed, Assassins creed artwork

Mr Incredible vs Deimos (Rematch)

Right about when Ghostlet was getting in bed, Ghostess came home so I shut off the xbox and spent the rest of the evening chatting with her

Darth Maul

My tattoo artist came back with a preliminary sketch for my sleeve.  I am pretty excited about it and we will get started on it next Tuesday.  I did notice that the reference picture he found had some dwarvish runes on it, so I spent a bit of time translating that.  It ended up being pretty easy because it was just a straight transliteration of English into dwarvish runes.  I probably won't have him put any writing on this part (either dwarvish or elvish) because I can't think of anything else I particularly want to have written on me forever. 

 

Round 8

Mr. Sandman (Character) - Giant BombVSThe Incredibles | Official Site | Disney Movies

Sandman vs Mr Incredible

Instead of staying up really late chatting with Ghostess, I climbed into bed just a little after midnight.
