On Banded Knee

Warning!!! NSFW due to possible bare chicken legs

So I picked up my fancy shmancy(why is firefox trying to spell-correct shmancy?) knee brace today from my friendly Ossur dealer in Richmond*

*side note: I hate driving in Richmond. When I want to head South-West, why do I have to get on 99-North?

I thought I would share my excitement with the multitude of readers who call me begging for blog updates.

So without further ado, I present 'The Brace'



And the action shot:

I will be testing this puppy out later today on a run through some trails near my house. Wish me luck!

The Bionic Man

Time for a boring update post, but here's the deal:

me: hey Doc, I flew off my dirt bike in a blaze of glory and now my knee hurts
Doctor 1 : It's just bruised, it'll get better in a week or two
me: hey Doc2, my knee still hurts
Doctor 2 : It might be a slight tear, be better in 2 months
me: hey Doc3, my knee still hurts and it bent sideways the other day
Doctor 3 : Hmmm, we should send you to physio and a specialist
Physio - Looks torn to me, ask the specialist what to do
Specialist - Looks torn to me, go for surgery
Surgeon - Looks torn to me, wear a brace

So, after about a year now, I'm going to buy a knee brace on Friday (Maybe with flames on it!) that will hopefully take the place of my ACL... And since I'm already signed up to join the company soccer team, I better get back in shape in a hurry!

So I stumbled upon this funny Periodic Table of Awesoments which made me want to post my top 5 things that are awesome:

5. Sarcasm
Because I really really appreciate you and what you have done for the world.

4. Camping
I love sitting in a forest with a beer in one hand and a chainsaw in the other. So I guess this one could be renamed "camping or being a crazed killer". Whether it be in a tent with holes so big you can't remember which one is the door, or in "The affordable way to get away" boxtent in the back of my truck, me loves the camping.

3. lolcatz
Many dark and dreary days - where one thing after another was going wrong - have been turned around by a hillarious picture of a cat with a clever quip. And so I ask you all:
2. Boobs
'nuff said

1. Bazookas
To me, the bazooka was always the coolest weapon to pretend you had when having a pretend gun fight as a kid. Nothing felt quite like resting that cold heavy metal on my shoulder, closing one eye and taking aim at my sister the enemy forces.
* side note: Although my mother worked for the Canadian Forces, and let me watch training video's on how to properly fire surface to air missiles or the benefits of tracer ammo, I was never allowed to own any gun toys as a kid. Not even a water gun.
Nothing beats a bazooka. Nothing. Try using one in your next game of rock/paper/scissors. I guarantee you will win.

I'm back baby! And now for something completely different...

So I'm finally moved into the new place! My apologies for forcing you to live without my mundane (or is that inane?) ramblings for far too long.

Are you like me? Do you ever watch/read/pay attention to someone important semi-famous and think 'Hey, I could do that!'?
Not in The Little Engine That Could way, but rather in the How is this guy more qualified than me? egotistical way. Well I do, and recently I have come across a couple cases of this which I will (maybe possibly might) prove that I could do it better.

This example is internet based, so the qualifications are that you breathe. I just checked, and I qualify.

The multitude of video game podcasts (that suck).

While I find ZeroPunction's reviews amusing, they are obviously written for entertainment and hold no real "review" value. Most other podcasts take 20 minutes to "finish munching their nachos"1 and then 3 guys with tantamount voices just mumble about why the current line-up of games isn't perfect. Then they argue why each other is an idiot.

I would like to find or create a podcast where people with distinguishable voices actually give some insight to how a game plays/looks/feels rather than the classic five year old argument "it sucks!", "does not!", "does to!".

Anyone have a good gaming podcast or maybe someone who would partner up with the old Fynnsky for our very own?

Eyes Forward!

So Its 49 hours and 50 minutes until I move into my first place, and I'm getting extremely excited. The problem is, I still need to be constructive at least for the hours I'm at work. I'm like a little kid the night before Christmas. I know Santa won't come till I fall asleep, which causes me to not fall asleep!

me: w00t! new house!
computer: zzzzzzzz
me: I can't wait!
computer: shouldn't you be pressing keys or something?
me: shut up you, I'm trying to be excited over here!
computer: seriously man, I'm just about ready to turn on a screensaver. You don't think your boss will wonder why you have toasters flying across your screen and a blank stare on your face?
me: what would make him think anything was different than usual?

So now I need to focus on work... somehow... not gonna happen

This is too funny

For all of you who know a fanboi (or fangirl)*
For those of you at work, you may want to plug in some earphones for this.

This could easily be swapped for apple. I'm still laughing out loud...

*fanboi - noun - from urban dictionary: Someone who is hopelessly devoted to something and will like anything associated with thier particular thing.
That damn fanboi only likes that game cause Capcom made it.)
