[QUOTE=namelesswonder;1383513]Haha, well, he also had an Orc warrior tank (called OogaKabooga), but our guild had been built on Alliance soil. That one has a giant rooster mount. You can imagine what he called it instead. Yeah, I guess we're Alliance scum, just seemed like there were so many more asshats on Horde whenever I tried switching.
Oh yeah...so I might as well mention this since it's relevant. He wants to name the cat after his death knight. Barbant.[/QUOTE]
Dude, he had the rooster? Okay, that is badass. I can overlook the alliance scum knowing that. As for asshats, they were on both sides, we just have better asshats ;)
Okay, yeah, go get the cat, that is awesome. :D
He enjoys variations of Barbant for most of his toons in games now. Like BarbantsMom, BarbantsWife. Used to be Jester everything (starting with InsaneJester). I still use Nameless for everything. Namelesswndr was my abandoned warlock, Namelesshunt (dranei hunter) became my main. Tried namelessprst and namelessgbln too, I think, but didn't get far with those. Barbant originated from the random name generation and he liked it.
Our computers are now MrsHulky and MrHulky haha >< We're hopeless.
Yay, the office is closing early due to the weather advisory! 4-8" of snow.
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow AM for my female issues. I hope it is not another waste of time.
Good luck at your appointment :)
I ended up replacing my Logitech M series with a Logitech G600. I love that thing. Throw in the gamepad Geek got me a few weeks ago and I rarely hafta touch my keyboard. Makes GW2 so much easier, especially playing my elementalist or engineer.

How is GW2? A buddy of mine played the first one and enjoyed it but I've not heard much about the second.
What I did this morning:
-Fixed the heat (boiler had run out of water and I had to refill it)
-Shovelled most of the driveway, a bit messily, on my own for an hour
-Put together a beef stew & started the crockpot
-Got a lunch together
-Got to my appointment on time
-Go to work before I expected to
So Hulky will have to forgive me if the stew doesn’t have real garlic in it, only garlic powder, and I didn’t leave enough room for some potatoes. I am sure he won’t mind. He is keeping odd hours over his break: going to bed when he feels tired as opposed to a set time, which means I go to bed alone and sometimes wake up alone because he will sleep on the couch so as not to wake me. The funny part is that I wake up early, realize I’m alone, and make him join me in bed so I can snuggle before getting up . I don’t like his sleep schedule, I think because it makes me feel like I spend a lot more time alone. He could do all his gaming & farting around during the day and spend his evenings with me… Not that we do much on weeknights. Not sure how to talk to him about this.
Not to get into too much detail, but the appointment amused me. The doctor recommended a treatment method that I actually mentioned at the last appointment. At the time, she said she wasn’t sure about it. This time, she told me to do exactly what I’d mentioned before. I guess she forgot? Maybe I planted a seed in her head? Whatever. She said I can’t start it until after my period is over, so I’ll wait until it lightens up at least and get some OTC stuff to try in the meantime. I already have the boric acid & size 00 capsules needed for the treatment.
I’m not sure if I’m going to do yoga or barre tonight. I think it’d be overdoing it considering the shoveling we’ve been doing this week.
Out of clementines, but hoping to run out & get some (and egg nog) tonight!
You accomplished a lot and took care of yourself. Way to go!
Thanks, P. I also took a bath last night in the clawfoot tub with 2 cups of epsom salt :). It took a while to fill using the shower head (the adapter is set up so you can't fill it from the regular tub faucet) and I learned that I will have to monitor the water level next time so it doesn't hit the overflow grate (the pipe isn't sealed well against the tub & leaked a bit on the floor), BUT it was very relaxing. I think it helped me sleep well, though I did take Theanine Serene around 7:30 last night.
In retrospect, the bath is probably what drained the boiler and caused me to have to go down & manually fill it back up (just had to move a lever until the little water level indicator had gone back up).
As we near the end of 2013 and approach another week hiatus for me from MDA (just going for 5 straight days this time instead of a full week, M-F next week), I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks to everyone who bothers reading my brain dumps. Thanks to anyone who posts anything to me. Thanks for being here. I am really grateful for your presence, patience, and friendship. MDA has been an exceptional resource for me to pick apart my brain & health, and it's all thanks to the people here.
Health things I want to jot down before I forget again:
-My temperature runs a little low. At the doctor today, it was 97.2°F, in the ear. At home, under the tongue, it's always 97.7°. I wonder if that is a fault with the thermometer or my temp just doesn't vary much. I want to improve this and see if I am less prone to feeling cold. My hands & feet get cold very easily. I'm doing some searching how to do this with food, but I think the main thing is eating enough. Maybe I'll try a shot of coconut oil a day!
-I skipped breakfast because I was busy. This is probably going to screw up my BM schedule. Darn (I almost wrote "crap" or "poop" but then thought better of it, but then decided to mention it anyway).
-The last few times I've been to the doctor (over the past two months), my blood pressure has been lower than ever before. It used to be a steady 120-ish/80-ish. Now it's 110/70 (today was 72, but in that area, no lower than 70). I guess this is my new norm? I wonder why it changed. I'm interested to see if this goes back up as I improve my digestion & temperature or stays the same.
