    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm more for (New Zealand) nephrite jade, tiger's eye, or bloodstone... But good luck making a countertop out of any of that. Oh, and that Irish marble (Connemara) is gorgeous too.

    Happy ( Belated) Birthday RuneLyall !

    I'm supposed to forward the message of "tell them thanks for me" as he's rather deep into his Fallout 4 replaying We celebrated by having Starbucks, and then going down to a local tabletop gaming place (where pretty much all the staff know him as Rune, and me as Wulfe) and playing a few games for several hours. Man, work was brutal the next day though, since we were there late! He'll be treated to donairs or poutine later this week ~_^ ...Although partially due to the fact it's our ten year anniversary next week too.

    I typically buy mine from T&T Market, which is an Asian food store. As for which ones, I ten to go with whichever ones are the 5x 120g or 135g packs, usually simulated beef flavour since those ones aren't too too spicy. Lucky 97 also has a fairly good selection too. As for getting back on topic, I can't wait to add a thing or two onto the PM... Just another cheque or two and I should be able to start adding stuff in myself

    If you thunk the bucket against concrete it will sort of boom, just not the expodey type of boom.

    If you're paying that little, it isn't ramen ~_^ I like my noodles, so when I buy some I spend a bit more because then there's actual flavour to them Cheap instant noodles are nowhere near ramen - there isn't any remotely decent broth, for example, and they're plain, generic noodles. I also live in Canada, where the cheapest cases I've seen (that are decent products) are the Mama line, which are usually $7.5-8 CAD per case, which includes... 24 or 30 I can't remember. I buy the nicer ones. ^_^;;;; the Mama ones also are "terrible" iny eyes because their serving size is so small most people need two packages, thereby reducing the supposed value they have (the $4-5 per five pack ones usually have 120-150g of noodles alone) Frank's is cheap enough, even in Canada Tumeric and black pepper though, I'd be tempted to try at some point just because I never have done such.

    The Black Magic one I'm looking at is the Pocket Cinema 4K,which isn't really pocket sized (especially with any of the Olympus Pro lenses!), but that's life. I like that it has a four thirds size sensor that's rumoured to be similar to the Sony low light sensor in the Panasonic GH5S, as a LOT of the specs are similar (dual native ISO, sensor specifically designed for low light, etc)... Plus the built in microphones that those who've had a bit of on hand time with say they're "good enough for quick run and gun", aka you'll still want a good mic, but you at least have options. .. But with micro four thirds mounts, so you get the better low light sensitivity, but without the extra bulk, size, and weight of using a larger sensor. It won't outshine the Sony A7S II, but your kit will definitely be a lot smaller and lighter! :p It's expensive, but at the same time, makes for a nice bit of kit that should last for quite some time. As for Olympus, I love their lenses. I'd love their camera bodies too, but sadly the EM-5 and EM-1mk II bodies both have polarized EVF's, which saddens me because I pretty much always wear polarized sunglasses when I'm outdoors - joys of being photosensitive, and rather prone to snow blindness, and even get issues from water reflections (hence why the polarized lenses). On the plus side, it does mean my eyes tend to work better in low light situations.... Kind of a pity about those polarized EVF's, but it's life (looking into them when wearing my outdoors glasses I get this annoying Templar cross across the viewfinder)

    No fair, days just starting over here. Then again, I got to sleep in.....

    Night photography, handheld makes me justify the $1,500 CAD lenses. They are soooo sexy though. I want the 17mm and the 45mm ones. Still cheaper than the new Panasonic 200mm f2.8 though, man that thing is expensive... But hey, weather resistant, lets in a lot of light, and in the focal lengths I want PLUS a manual focus clutch with markings. Yup, I like the sound of them. But yeah, not wanting to always be carting a tripod around means the f1.2 lenses are a good option. Yes, I rely on my in body image stabilization for such, but I can also have shaky hands every now and then. I do plan on a tripod at some point, but yeah. Having the option to not bring one is always handy, doubly so when the tripods you want are 4-5lbs with a good head on them. Edit: I'll also eventually be pairing them with a Panasonic G9 (currently using the G85) as well as the new Black Magic four thirds camera body (that's $1,295 USD) as I'll be doing a mix of stills and video work. It isn't just gear lust, I do have a few plans, including low light video work. (end edit) If only YouTube Red was available in countries they've teased it as "coming soon" for the past three years... I'd subscribe to the family plan of it sooo quick.

    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    I say the future, for a few reasons... - first and foremost, there's no worries about creating an alternate "current time frame" by sleeping with your grandmother or getting who's supposed to be your grandfather killed off. I'm messing up someone else's timeline if I do such - the future always just seems neat to me - knowing that it's the future, I'd probably just relax and have a good time of it, whereas the past, I'd potentially be tempted to try and "fix" problems, or give past me tips on how to avoid some problems. Nah, I'm not dealing with past me, he doesn't listen well, plus even with some of the mistakes I've made I'm happy with how things turned out. :p

    Last of the initial paperwork on that loan... Now comes the scary/frustrating part - waiting for the answer... Still sucks I won't get the car, but I'd rather be realistic, get to enjoy my hobbies, and actually move forward in life. .... Oh, and get my paws on some epic lenses too - hubby said if it goes ahead, I can buy the Olympus f1.2 lenses I wanted to get, plus the two camera bodies (one for video), plus mini stuff, plus plus... O_o provided of course everything is taken care of (usual condition). Yeah, I think I can live without the shiny car, even if it was gorgeously blue, and a coupe, and handles amazingly, and is a ton of fun to drive. Did I mention its a gorgeous blue?

    Awww, darn, you caught on quick. Yes, it's grape soda. Since we're a bilingual country, it will say grape on one side, then raisin on the other in pretty much any shop. But... I like my purple stuff.... Even if yup, it really doesn't taste anything like grape. ~~~~~ As for the whole reason I playfully said raisin soda in the first place... We had an American friend visit us ages ago, and we had run out of Coca-Cola... So we went to the store. While passing by the no name stuff, he suddenly got this weirded out expression and grabbed the 2L of purple stuff, and was all "raisin soda? You guys have raisin soda??!?", and of course had a worried expression while making a partial "blech" face. .... I then turned the bottle next to the one he'd picked up slightly, and showed him the English side, then reminded him it's a bilingual country... We still bug him about it to this day, although in a playful way.

    The only problem is the good ones are $4-5 for a five pack..... So not quite as affordable as say pasta, which can be fairly inexpensive ($10 played well gets you a giant thing of Prego sauce, and enough semolina flour pasta for easily 6-8 meals if you play it right), but still. And then you need a good hot sauce for the ramen, because by itself is just boring :p

    Here we have.... A mix mash of rules, UT I hate taking two weeks back to back anyways unless I have some rather significant plans. You get stir crazy by the second Tuesday, I feel. .... Which is why I take a week off every four months at the moment, and I try to avoid the "really busy" request parts (end of the year stuff, spring break, summer break, etc) so that way those families with children can actually go together as a family. Besides, I hate taking vacation in summer - it's too hot to do anything! :p But yeah, once I have four weeks, knowing me I'll wind up going back to my two time periods, and I'll suck up the whole two weeks per break thing because I hate trying to figure out what I'm going to do with all that vacation time. Things should also be a lot less hectic finances wise, so I actually could do something during those two weeks. Canada is civilized... Sort of. We just look at things wonky because we have raisin soda.....

    I'm the same way. Sure, I miss the paycheques from my old job (which were, uhm, 3x what I make now) but I'm not working 13 hours a day, moving around like a maniac, and eating probably enough food to keep two soldiers going in combat conditions. Okay, that last part is probably overkill, but when you go from three meals and three snacks to five meals with four snacks just to keep up, I do wonder if my caloric intake was near such... Yeah, I used to work for UPS, loved the vehicles and the pay, but man the drama and work took its toll on you in short order. What I still have trouble with though, is vacation time. I'm up to three weeks now, and I think it's 2020 I qualify for a fourth week... And I've no idea what I'm going to do at that point...
