Don't frustrate yourself OR her for it. Just keep the camera ready and if it happens, it happens.

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:15 AM)

I'll probably try waving treats in front of her and whistling it, see if I can encourage it

@  Ashley : (23 October 2019 - 12:14 AM)

I'll try. She's not the most obedient bird, so it's going to take some work to get her to do it on demand.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 10:03 PM)

In fact; we demand video.

@  MEDdMI : (22 October 2019 - 09:26 PM)

My parrot just whistled the Transformers theme music

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Yeah, I think both are too old and too expensive at this stage. Hasbro/Paramount are going to try for younger actors that can do multiple films AND can be locked into a multifilm contract cheaply

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 06:05 PM)

so he'd probably be sixty by the time they get to another GI Joe project.

@  Patch : (22 October 2019 - 06:04 PM)

According to Wikipedia he's 51.

@  Paladin : (22 October 2019 - 05:38 PM)

isn't Crews like sixty now???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 October 2019 - 02:11 PM)

Who thinks that, in the event of a GI Joe cinematic reboot, John Cena and Terry Crews would be perfect for Duke and Roadblock, respectively?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:05 PM)

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:49 PM)

"I hear you, but you know how it is, there's nothing I can do about it." That's it, basically.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2019 - 06:40 AM)

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

I've skipped three days this week. I've caught whatever it is floating around. While it's not been horrible in terms of symptoms, the dizziness and stomach cramps take away any desire to take a session. Starting to feel better though, so I'll jump back on it next week.

Man...Ive been pretty lazy this week and my diet has been that great.  Our work schedule has been all goofy for working out in the morning coupled in with appointments that Ive had this week for moving and its been all goofy.  

 

Good work guys on racking up the miles!

 

Great job Darklaw on your weight loss efforts.  

 

Sweat....I have a shirt that says "This isnt sweat, its liquid awesomness"  lol  Its also bright yellow for running at night.  

 

Ive been doing the shakes still this week with the veggies.  Just made a Kale, spinach, carrot and pineapple.  And here goes the first sip.....hmm...earthy.   Made one last night that had kale, spinach, cucumber, pomegranate, rainer cherriers, apple...I think thats it.  It was amazing.  

 

haha...looking for a way to mix up your chicken....let BroScience help you out: (How do I embed?)

93.23 + 1.5(run) + 5(bike) + .5(walk) = 100.23 miles

 

So had a pretty decent workout yesterday. 

Ran 1.5 miles.  My left calf started hurting so instead of doing a 30 min run I just pushed it out to 1.5 miles.  Going to start wearing a compression sleeve on the calf to help.  Also some more foam rolling

Biked 5 miles:  Figured since I couldnt do the 30 min run I got the 5 miles in just a bit over 20 minutes.  

Shoulder exercises from my surgery for rotator cuff strengthening.  

For Abs I did sets of 10, 15, 20, 25 starting with 40lbs and dropping to 10lbs.

Walked .5 mile for a cooldown. 

 

Then one of my buddies from a previous base is in town so we went down to the strip and walked around some Casinos.  I ended up on my watch with over 21,000 steps for the day when I normally only get 7-9000.  But...this is where it all went downhill.  We went to a buffet at the Mirage which is was pretty damned good.  It was also about 35 bucks with tax..but..I had : sushi, seaweed salad, inari, prime rib, mashed taters, mac n cheese, bbq ribs, beef n broccoli, veggy egg roll, crab leg, shrimp, some deserts that I dont know what they were.  I think thats about everything.  basically it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much.  Ah well.  Ill get some time in on the exercise bike and eating light and make up for it.  That may not be the right way to go but its my way of balancing it out. Also, the movers come Thursday so Ill be busy during the week packing up stuff and getting things ready for them to come.

0.6 miles on elliptical, 20 min, 300ish calories

It really picked up my spirits, energy, and did my lower back some good.

Oooooh gosh, I'm suppose to go to the gym but I'm being held captive by the tv (old eps of Big Bang Theory). I need motivation to escape the clasp of couch potato-ism! (I'm two eps from the season finale!)

Edit to say I missed my window of gym opportunity cuz I just had to see the new season episode. And the next one... I feel so weak willed... Gonna eat raisin bread... Grr.

This year is starting off wonderfully. I should really jump on the bike (I had planned to!) But my work ran long, I wound up taking longer at the bank than I wanted: I'm a little drunk, very cold, and more than a little tired...

 

Tomorrow morning: I will start again tomorrow morning.

The exercise will warm you up and burn off some of that alcohol!

 

A little bit more to add for me: 0.8 mi and 450 calories burned in a 24 min workout

 

= 101.63 mi

101.63 + 2.66 = 104.92

 

Did 100 jump ropes

stretched

1 exercise per body part, 3 sets of 10-15 reps per

10 min on the exercise bike

70 sit ups

 

Was kind of a slacker day, but Ive ate healthy pretty much all day....Im sure that carne asada burrito was healthy...

 

Back at it again tomorrow morning.  Thinking of doing some tabata workouts: Exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10, repeat for 4-5 exercises then a 60 second break and repeat what you just did 2-3 times.  then more abs.  Or depending on how my leg feels I might go for a long slow run.

I've been doing 500 jump ropes a day before breakfast to jump start my day but I end up lying down again after sometimes, ugh. I enjoy the jogging type jump rope over the double feet jump. Which is more beneficial though? Too bad I can't add it to the miles count.

Disappointed in myself last night but gym this afternoooooooon!

Sounds like you're none the worse for wear. I increased the intensity of yesterday's workout, so although the distance was slightly less, I burned more (530 estimated) calories. Today was my day off (doing 3 on, 1 off to start), and my future updates will be a tally of each 3 day on set. :)

114.73 + 0.78 = 115.51
