Whenever I miss a lift, she asks, "What happened?"

 

I don't know off the top of my head......


Isn't that what she is there for, to tell you what to do to make yer lifts? ;)

Trying to find a way to incorporate a backflipping hatchet attack into a future WOD.  :P

Why does everyone get Russian or Slavic type names?

 

Pretty much what Doc Tanktimov said:

Com(mie) to anyone 30 or older implies Russian due to the Soviet Union, as well as the fact that he's doing the Evil Bulgarian Plan.

 

The cutting edge of the Millenial generation was only 6 or 7 when the Berlin Wall came down.  There were, of course, the Chi-Commies and VC's and North Koreans and Cubans.  However firstly, the USSR provided us with hockey rivalry.  Secondly, the original XCOM had Russian names, but no Chinese names.  Thirdly, the random Russian names are a part of what made XCOM so memorable.

 

By the time I was in University and certainly by the time XCOM came out, Russians were invading the NHL.

 

All Canadians remember where they were when the final goal was scored in the Summit Series in 1972.  I suppose I could ask my mother. :panda:

I remember being at my Great-grandmother's house watching Germans tear down the Berlin wall on the news.

 

If I counted correctly, then you would have been about 8.

It's people like you that make going to the gym more interesting. You should consider that you are doing a public service, rather than the fact that you are telling jesus straight to his face that he didn't even lift bro. Like, maybe he could walk on water, but how much could he bench?

O M G - is this me?

I am now totally invested.   How am I doing?  Am I  destroying enemies?  

 

Your toon arrives in Bulgaria in two more game days.  Meanwhile, it was Taddea Zhaanova with the privilege of camping the UFO waiting for three Floaters to come out hunting the XCOMmies.  So three RPG kills for her.  One Auto Cannon kill for Rookie Beotovich.

 

Most likely one kill for whoever tossed the Grenade under that Sectoid, even if it was a team effort (complete with a Spotter) and a game of Hot Potato.

 

Next time I am home at a decent time, I should be able to run forward in time up to the next Mission.  Most likely that will be Friday or Saturday.

Has Skin in Bones ki got involved yet ?

"They know we're in here now!"

 

It looks like I am going to have to get the third Mission going and fast! :lol:

 

Based on popular demand, it looks like we will be fielding whoever gets promoted to Captain, one Sargent, and the 12 XCOMmie Rookies we just hired. :D

We did discuss volume and fatigue and what I will call mental energy.  We are 11 days prior.  Next week will be a little lighter and the following week will be a lot lighter.  We will be checking openers on Tuesday and I think I will cut off a lot of volume leading up to it.

 

Score for Today:

2535 Calories

261 Carbs

103 Fat

171 Protein

 

-3.3 Overall

 

When MFP gives me a negative score, it's really bad. :(  I thought about just going out but opted against it.  For a cut, they look like perfect macros!

 

No gaming tonight.  It is almost 10pm.  It is looking more and more like Friday night.
