    Flu season - who's catching?

    I got a flu shot, and I think it helped me miss the first strain/mutation that came through, but this second wave is taking people out left and right. Not even sure it is the flu? It seems to be a persistent cough that just slowly wears you down until exhaustion/crappy lifestyle takes you out. A lot of people at my gym are getting z-packs due to it becoming viral are requiring antibiotics? Either way, I'm trying to drink a ton of soup/avoid contact with people in general. Might go on my 'liquid only'-diet of lipton soup to get a jump on it (because lipton noodle soup, though it has no nutritional value, has gotten me through many illnesses).

    This was my original profile picture...I...do not think this challenge was issued to me.

    Running terrifies me. You all are gods to me.

    I'm actually paying for it on my next flight because I'm horrible about checking myself in 24-hours beforehand to get a spot (I've been recently flying JetBlue, due to it being easier to get to from JFK, but SW seems to be the only carrier flying to a place I'm going on the day I want to go). SW is a little trickier for me since it only flies from LGA (third-world country airport...) or MacArthur (which charges another $150+ per ticket because it's not near NYC), so I haven't been using it as much? To tell the truth, I really don't care when I get on a flight, since most of the time I just have my backpack/am traveling alone, but I like having a window seat because I fall asleep immediately when I sit down. Jetblue I can just pay for my bigger seat, not because I need it, but because it maximizes my sleep time on the plane.

    I'm trying to use YNAB...and it's making me sad when I realize how much I've spent on vacation these past two months. 😦

    NY License Watch OCT 2018 Exam

    I've only seen a couple of updates over the past couple days (2-3 per day). None have been me. I don't know if the shutdown is affecting the updates or not. I'll keep waiting, again, it's not February yet so there is still time in the 5-8 week window that is shown on the nysed website.

    Whatcha Playin?

    For me it's a mix of storyline but also helping out my brother. We did that a lot when we were little (puppy pile on the bed with me and my siblings and 'helping' by yelling out suggestions on the boss levels) and it's kinda carried over. Like, I'll play RPGs/JRPGs and he'll watch me grind for hours/supply popcorn, and when he's playing something with more action/not turn based, I'll get him soda and stuff. We're pretty quiet when playing, mostly so we can read the subtitles/hear the music/not make my dad angry because he's usually teaching upstairs. I like video games that have a %-complete. Something we liked when we were little and renting games from Blockbuster. Mom wouldn't let us return/exchange it if we finished the game in a day until we had 100%. I think the last game I played was Pokemon? The hawaiian one? With the hula battles and stuff. I don't think I finished it? Mostly using my spare time after work to do the dishes and sell stuff online (aka; not re-watching The Office, what do you mean, never?).

    Oh yes. I know. Which is why I am so excited to someday retire to Florida and become a snowbird.

    Shit, I've already got the collection of NewBalance sneakers, might as well get the golf cart so I can get around the 55+ compound!

    Whatcha Playin?

    @saxman1089 I loved playing BotW! Well, watching my brother play it. He humored me and let us hunt for frogs for the first three hours of the game...We spent way more time in the first area than we needed to due to me being like, "Recipes? Like Tales games? Yes! Make all the things!" I fear I've become more of a game watcher than a game player nowadays. But I can't stand watching streaming videos of people playing because they're always TALKING and COMMENTING and making LAME JOKES. I just want to watch a playthrough with no talking, just the video game, which is so hard to find. 😰

    Movie thread

    Okay. Due to gym schedule (whyyyyyyyyy) I'm going to potentially have to do a movie Sunday afternoon...which is when the creeps come out from the nearby college. I think I'll just wait for $5 Tuesdays and go to the nicer place near me so I can get the reclining chairs.

    Movie thread

    I heard it was really good, and the premise looks interesting! It was one of the top of the group I threw together (I kinda want to see Vice, just because I was alive when it happened, but I love hearing more about Ruth before she became the ultra badass she is today?).

    Movie thread

    Okay! Weekend movie choice time. What should JayKay see: If Beale Street Could Talk; Vice; On the Basis of Sex; The Upside; or A Dog's Way Home (shmaltzy, and I know I'll cry).

    The Baking Thread

    I don't usually make wings at home, because I am lazy and single, but when my mom makes them she twice bakes them? So they get ultra crunchy. I do not know if this is a real method or not. Also...I want to bake/have a huge list I want to try, but our office is still under a deluge of vendor gifts/Christmas/Holiday food in the kitchen...And I don't feel like fighting that. Right now I'm debating between poppy seed something (I have around 4lbs of the stuff I never used) or a Charlotte royale...which has always been a weird item of interest to me.

    The best mousetrap we've had is this blob. Killed everything within a half-mile radius and, once allowed indoors, killed around five mice in two days and showed us the mousetraps when they had mice caught (because she wanted to try and eat them).
  20. I just watched Derry Girls. It is amaaaaaaaazing. Only 6 episodes/half hour per episode, but it was great! Set in the early 90s during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. My mom and I were howling with laughter (it involves four girls in Catholic school and all this great nonsense, did not go the serious route). I can't wait for the next season, but it looks like it is only being released in the UK this March, so I think I'm going to have a bit of a wait...

    NY License Watch OCT 2018 Exam

    Truth. Only poke the sleeping dragon if you have a really, really good reason, and be very contrite when doing so. Case in point: when they were issuing exam approval and I had submitted everything early (November) but hadn't received notification if I could sit (this was Feb 1st, and I think the closing registration for the exam was Feb 20?). I called and talked to a person and was like, "Maybe I missed it in the mail, but I was hoping someone could help, even if it means I can't sit the exam this round, I'd like to make sure my submittal package is complete for the next review round." Was told I'd prob not make the Feb deadling/it takes 6-weeks to review, but then they followed-up with an email stating what was missing (a single Form 4A), allowed me to submit the form via email, and then reviewed and gave the okay in 2-weeks. It's all about not pushing the buttons for something not really important (if you passed, you passed, they can't take that away). They're issuing license numbers. I won't complain unless it's mid-March and I don't have my number by then.

    Better than calling it cracker. White squirrels take offense to that term.

    NY License Watch OCT 2018 Exam

    Nope. I assume it has something to do with the holidays (I know a majority of people take off the last two weeks of the year and this week is really only the 'start' of people returning). The website does say 5-8 weeks for processing. If I don't have my license number by Valentine's Day, then I'll be a little concerned.
