Veggies?  Went shopping today.  Got a bunch of stuff.  Will attempt the stew again.  Added a few things to last week's list.  Simple things for snacks work.  I have one cucumber I intended for today.

Thought for today:  The English language spells the word "Engineer" wrong.  See the translation into Western European Languages.

 

German: 

Ingenieur

 

French:

ingénieur

 

Spanish:

ingeniero

 

Dutch:

ingenieur

 

Italian:

ingegnere

 

I knew this when I started Ingeneering school, but thought of it today for some reason.

 

Obviously, today is a Rest Day.

Veggies?  Hmm.  Evening is still young.  Big supply.

 

Still need to set up stew for tomorrow.  So two birds.

To me rest means things that aren't on my programming... so for me if it's not rowing or lifting it's totally rest. Even if I work out other ways. That's how it works right?

Ah, so that's why I'll never be an engineer!!!

 

Bulgarian method works for mathing as well.  Practice every day and you will get better.  One day you will get very good! :)

Meanwhile on FB, some suggested post said more than three hours of resistance training is too much.  I did not bother to read the article, but I read the chart.  It was based on 0 to 5 active hours per week and 5 to 10 active hours per week.  Maybe I should have read it for entertainment value.

 

Sometime this week, either Thursday or Friday, I will be getting my next program - some kind of hybrid.  I am guessing:

6 days per week - because training life and social life do not mix.

Squats every day except.....

Deadlifts make a comeback!

Snatches and Cleans and Jerks

And screw Bench Press!  (once per week with dumbbell work in between)

Some list of accessories.... (Rows, Push Press, OHP)

 

We will see how accurate this list is.

Oh, noes!  Do people think "mechanic" instead?

 

Also, you missed getting to hear me struggle with pronouncing Greek letters, sounding out syllables like a second grader just learning how to read. :P

Oh, noes!  Has it been that long since I played?

 

I just could not remember the scene - and it is hard to recognize any of the characters.  Also the portraits are missing, so the player who made the screen does not play that way.

In fairness the lack of panes around the screen did make me doubt it, so I double cheked to confirm. Anyhow, a mechanician surely would have the power to cast magic missile, right?

The way I see it - yes.  NF made me compare what I do for a living to being a Mage.  I have also wanted to try for a long time playing either a Berserker-Cleric or a Kensai-Mage because I read somewhere they are pretty mean.

 

So maybe sometime after CNF2016, stay tuned for "Sam Ashen Bulgar(ian) Gate"

[EDIT:  Bulgar(ian) Gate *requires* Minsc and Boo!]

 

:D

 

I wonder if the screen is from somewhere in Throne of Bhaal, because a lot of stuff in there looks pretty late-game and it might explain why I do not recognize it so easily.

Sounds fascinating. I am all in for miniature giant space hamsters and crazy dudes. Sword of Greed is a Test in Hell, apparently you get a Tear of Bhaal for each level of Hell you complete. Sound familiar?
