I was sitting there last night, waiting for my latest Build It video to compress into .WMV and thought, “What the hell am I going to post on Friday?” Then, I realized, “CRAP! I missed a WUMF.” Maybe it’s because February is so short. Maybe, I’ve just got the dumb.
I turned 38 years old this week and as always, Mother Nature gets me the same thing, a blizzard. Seriously, my streak is like 25-13 Every year, on or within a few days proximity of my birthday, a snow event takes place. The Blizzard of 93 was like five days after my birthday.
And this year was stupid. That snowfall was ridiculously overplayed and gone within a couple of hours. The temperature did more to treat the roads than the local crews in my area did. My kid even had school cancelled that day. I think a 2-hr. delay would have been a substantial head start for the trucks to take care of business.
But, it didn’t matter. My wife took me to Dino’s in Greensburg for some wings. I haven’t had Dino’s wings in a long time. Which… is unfortunate, because I’ve been trying to lose weight. Still crushed 15 for the hell of it.
40 and a hole
Speaking of losing weight, I’m still hovering at 28 pounds lost since Christmas. I did have to do an emergency tracheotomy on my belt with my awl, though. I had to add another hole to the inside because my belt was so loose. I even managed to reclaim a pair of size 40 jeans in the process. They are a tad snug, but I’m working on that. Now that the damn groundhog prognostication is over, the weather can actually get nice and I can get outside and walk some.
The Minecraft server, where I had been playing and recording videos from, is kind of defunct. Not really sure how or why. I was on a few days ago and one of the guys told me it was shutting down. It was pretty razed by the time I got there. Someone came through with world edit and sponged a lot of stuff. I never see any of the admins or mods or even the owners on anymore. I got directed to a new server where I was given mod status and I can pretty much build at will. I plan on doing that once I get settled into the Mongo Smash series which aired its first video last week.
Yep, I done did it. I posted the first video of me just playing Minecraft, live without a net. I managed to record about two hours worth of material which will be chopped up into probably six or seven videos to be posted over the next month and a half. Once EA gets their shit together, I’d like to go get SimCity and try it out. Hopefully, I can record it. For now, here’s the first episode of Mongo Smashes Minecraft: The Bad Seed.
