Very excited for this one. I have so much LEGO backlog at the moment.

Second meal from the deep fryer: fried chicken! I got this book http://smile.amazon.com/Fried-Chicken-Recipes-Crunchy-Comfort-Food/dp/1607747243 as a gift and decided to make the easiest recipe in there, the double battered fried chicken (no brining, only uses flour, salt and pepper).

Wow. Super crunchy. Great flavor. The only things that would keep me from cooking this all the time are the fact that I'm really horrible at butchering chicken and the cleanup of the deep fryer. Also, our deep fryer only takes 2-3 pieces at a time so it's a pretty long process to cook an entire chicken.

Side dish was garlic bread with melted leftover cheese curds on top. Lola cut up some avocado and tomatoes so we wouldn't feel so guilty.

Obviously, you need either need another deep fryer, or a bigger one!

Or a friend with a deep fryer to come over and have dinner with you.

First try at deep fried cheese curds in a beer batter. These were frozen for an hour before frying for a minute, but not double battered. Verdict: pretty awesome!

We also tried garlic cheese curds that were chilled in the fridge but not frozen which were double battered. No pictures of this second batch exist because we ate them really quickly (but they were a huge mess: freezing + double battering seems to be the way to go).

They had me at "orbs to collect." Playing Crackdown over XBL with a friend was one of those truly awesome video game experiences where we were just hanging out while getting to do superhuman feats. Crackdown 2 was a little disappointing so here is hoping third time's a charm again.

I upgraded my old and barely used PC to Windows 10 yesterday.

I'd forgotten how long ago I'd built this thing: mid 2008! Here's the processor inside: launched in Q1 2008.  4GB of RAM. I'm pretty impressed that Windows 10 is running so well on a 7 year old machine.

In comparison, I HAD to upgrade my 2010 Macbook Pro in 2013 when Mavericks came out b/c it couldn't handle not being on an SSD to save its life.

Halo Boomco report: these darts seem to be a lot sturdier than Nerf darts: the body is plastic rather than foam. I can imagine it's a little worse getting hit by one of these than a comparable Nerf one.

I thought it was dumb how the target says "don't affix target to furniture or walls" but after shooting it a bit, I can see why: the darts deform on impact and then stick to the target material. I can imagine that it might get confused when hitting a textured wall (like we have in our house).

Anyway, the range is pretty impressive on these... I might have to get something like http://www.blasterlabs.com/2014/06/exclusive-mattel-boomco-rapid-madness-review/ to sit alongside all my existing Nerf stuff. Man, when my kid gets old enough to play with this stuff, he's going to be fully kitted out!

I got to visit Mattel and blast away at a whole bunch of this gear - it's awesome stuff!

Might pick one of these up... Haven't had a portable since the DS Lite, but have many fond memories of Mario Kart DS, Tetris and Prof Layton. I resisted the larger version b/c I knew the smaller one would eventually come here.
Nintendo will release the New Nintendo 3DS, the smaller version of its new handheld that features interchangeable cover plates, in North America on Sept. 25 as part of a special bundle with Animal...

I got the XL a few months ago, I really like it a lot. Smash bro's, Mario kart, and remakes of n64 Zelda games are all great

Gonna start ukulele classes next week at work... Got a beginner ukulele today. So far, seems easier than guitar b/c you hit all the strings for most of the basic chords. Haven't quite gotten the hang of hitting the strings w/ the left finger though vs a pick.

In Hawaii right now, can confirm the ukulele is fun. I learned "Don't Stop Believin'" and four hundred other songs in a proof by reduction.

Haven't completed a MGS game since 2. Played 3 and 4 very briefly. Skipped Ground Zeroes. Wondering if I have the time / motivation for Phantom Pain...
MGS V mixes a touch of the new with classic Kojima chaos to great effect.

Always tough to find enough time these days to give a game like MGS the dedication it deserves... This is the last Kojima MGS so it might be worthwhile to check out.

I read that hashtag as "wear in trouble"--which might also be applicable?

Awesome news. I've said it before: I would watch McShane read the phone book.

Ian McShane is returning to HBO, with the Deadwood actor signing on for a small-but-“key” role in the sixth season of the network’s massively successful Game Of Thrones. There are no details about what part the famously talented growler of profanities will be playing, which is fine, because it means

Post PRK eye surgery update, 6 months in:

I got my prescription checked on Tuesday: I got to 20/15 in my right eye! That's right, better than "perfect" vision. W00t. My left eye is supposedly 20/20, but I don't really believe it because it still seems blurry. For example, when the doctor put the lens array on and moved stuff around, I definitely saw my left eye improve, but when I asked, "so what is my prescription now?" she said "0, and no astigmatism."

She said my corneas are still healing a bit, which I wouldn't have thought except a few weeks ago at SciFoo, I was walking outside and I went to put my sunglasses on and they broke as I was taking them out of my pocket. Muscle memory was on and I smooooothly jammed a jagged end of plastic into my eye. It hurt like none other, then was OK for a day, then was intensely gross for another couple days. So maybe I should cut my left eye some slack.

I'm really glad I got the surgery done this year before becoming a dad. I can't imagine going through all the eye drops and general blindness on top of the sleep deprivation. Once again, highly recommended: it's the sort of thing that improves every day of your life. I still sometimes reach for my glasses in the morning and when I realize I don't need them, it feels amazing.

Next checkup is in 6 months, but at this point I'm sort of wondering if it's worth driving an hour to the city to be seen for 5 min and then have to drive back.

Snapshot scope. Smooth handling for close engagements. Enhanced target acquisition.

We ran into this place after seeing a movie at the Metreon. It's set up a little like Chipotle, but for spring rolls. You pick rolls or a banh mi or a bowl and then pick a protein then you get to select different vegetable / fruit fillings for the roll. They have a variety of sauces to dip. The rolls were great: the ingredients were fresh and the skin was nice and light. The sweet spicy chili sauce was probably the best one, although the peanut one was good too. While we ate, the manager came by to chat with us and make sure we were doing OK. All in all, great experience, would try again, wish they had one in the south bay so we could have it more often.

Skeezy. Not worth the cab ride from the strip.
