Found a recipe for making raspberry vinegar, it’s just three ingredients:

  • Malt Vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Raspberries

I’m going to let it sit for three days. By then I’ll strain out the berries, and I’ll hopefully have a nice fruity vinegar for fruit salads. I wish it was summer, I taste tested it a bit with a wooden spoon I used to stir and I think this would taste really good with some watermelon and feta cheese…

He’s right, just not for the reasons he’s thinking. They don’t report news, they report their spin of the news and not just the facts. It’s pretty sad that I have to go to other countries websites like the BBC to get anything. Or going to each website and piecing the nuggets together to figure out what actually happened in a story. Some parts of the press are starting to grow a pair, unfortunately it took an oompa loompa wearing a ferret on his head to get them to fucking do something.

What’s really surreal is being around people that accept everything they’re spoon fed by channels like Fox News, or just getting all their information from Tumblr, Facebook, 4chan, etc… Because when I think actual reporting I think fucking 4chan or social media… They’re quite content living in their own realities, their comfort zones, their confirmation bias is nothing short of phenomenal. I haven’t engaged anyone, but I have listened to a lot of people around here who seem to think that the Groper In Chief is our godking. My co-workers are still going on about how Crooked Hillary and her private email server would have doomed our country… Heh.

Sushi Tacos are a thing apparently
Sushi Tacos are a thing apparently avatar

As someone who likes Sushi AND Mexi cuisine I can’t help but like this idea.

It all started one (slightly drunken) night when our chef was working a late shift at her part-time cooking job at the local sushi restaurant.

With nothing to look forward to but a slow night, bored experimentation began. As somewhat of a joke, a sheet of nori was dipped into tempura batter and dropped into the fryer. We added some leftover sushi rice, krab mix, and whatever sushi scraps we got our hands on and TA-DAH!

The sushi nori taco was born.

I’m not gonna lie, the one with corn on it kinda gives me the creeps.

Our government is running like a well-oiled Charlie Sheen.

If it’s one thing to look forward to during this whole mess, it’s the comedians that have an endless supply of jokes. Especially considering our polyester cockwomble of a president has been an endless joke.

15 hours of sleep later

The other night started out alright, ate steak and lobster, had an overall good day… Then I woke up a couple hours later vomiting. I’m not sure what caused it, I was well hydrated, only had one glass of wine, and all the food I ate that day was homemade so it wasn’t spoiled or overcooked. Work has been a little stressful with us being down a person, but I wouldn’t think that would be the cause. Either way I’m well over it now, especially after coming home yesterday and sleeping the rest of it off.

As you can see I’ve changed the blog around a bit (unless you’re reading this via email or on Google+, then you’re missing out!) I’ll be adding more headers as I go along, that was probably the most time consuming part. Might tweak the coloring in some areas but overall I like it. If anyone has some suggestions feel free to float them my way.

Possible site redesign in the future

I’m not sure when it’ll happen, or how much I’ll change it, but in the future when I find the time I plan to look at a possible website overhaul in appearance. I may keep the current look and template or I may change to a different one depending on features. I still like this one quite a lot and it gets updated quite frequently, but the same group that made this template has some other nice ones I might play with when I find the time to do so. They’re called Cryout Creations if you ever want to check them out, worth it if you’re on a self hosted WordPress. I’ve used their templates for quite a few websites, they’re extremely customizable and receive updates quite frequently. ๐Ÿ˜€

The part of Serious Sam will be played by Jay Leno.

I pulled out my poking stick and played a bit of Serious Sam 2 (not to be confused with Serious Sam: Second Encounter). My opinion hasn’t changed much since the last post I made years ago, but I will say the combat is fun and the secrets I found tonight were rather funny. I found a couple of bicycle horns that summoned monsters, and I think I’m getting close to discovering the lost corpse of Duke Nukem…

Sadly Sam still hasn’t gotten a good line yet. Given the content in this game it’s hard to tell if this was written for kids or adults… considering that one secret involving a bush in the first level. ๐Ÿ˜›

Asus is currently the king of gaming laptops
Asus is currently the king of gaming laptops avatar

It’s finally nice to see a company kick Alienware’s ass. Asus is officially #1 on the gaming laptop market.

On Wednesday Asus made comment upon MSI’s claims of being the largest gaming vendor worldwide. Asus asserted that it was the biggest gaming vendor and the “largest gaming notebook vendor in Taiwan in the second quarter with a 52 per cent market share”. According to Apple Daily, via DigiTimes, the firms disagree because they use different product counting methodsโ€ฆ

Today Asus again reported on the success of its gaming laptop line. Company president Jerry Shen told reporters that it expects to sell a million gaming laptops this year with the majority, approx three quarters of them, to be Republic of Gamers (ROG) branded machines.

I can vouch. I’m still rocking my G750JS at lunch breaks, and the G74SX I used to have still gets good mileage for the co-worker/friend I sold it to. It was honestly a toss up between Asus and MSI during my last upgrade as my research shows both are really good companies to go with for gaming laptops (among other hardware for desktops). It’s nice to sit anywhere and play a game like Skyrim, even on battery for about an hour.

Of course, the desktop will still be my #1 goto. But the portability is nice. ๐Ÿ˜‰
