    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Finished the story a couple of nights ago. It has been brilliant. My only regret is rushing through the story a bit, meaning I’ve lost a few side quests. My interest in hunting and gathering is limited, so I’m spending my time exploring every square inch of the map, looking for bad dudes to shoot.

    Games of the Year 2018

    It’s got to be RDR2 for me, for two reasons: 1) It’s really freaking good. 2) It’s the only game I’ve played this year.

    Gym Routine

    I’m pretty much in the exact same place as you. Lost 20 kg last year, and would ideally like to add about 5kg muscle. I know how effective Stronglifts can be, having done it before. I have two issues: 1) As you say, having lost all that weight and feeling great about having made that effort, intentionally eating enough to put weight back on is a little scary. I fear it’ll put me on a path that leads back to lazy, slight overweight. 2) Still struggling with a slipped disc in my lower back, caused by poor-form squats and deadlifts over a year ago, I can’t actually do compound lifts (or, I don’t think I should anyway.) So I’m kind of stuck feeling slightly too skinny, which is a strange feeling really.

    Ratings & Reactions: West Brom v Villa

    Having slept on it... ...I’m still fuming. Going to have to leave football aside for a couple of days.

    Ratings & Reactions: West Brom v Villa

    Fuming. I hate referees.

    Not getting much running either. Back injury (slipped disc) being the main issue, but the recent house move and trying to mark 150 tests and essays before the xmas break are handy excuses too, as well as shit weather and evening darkness. I’ve planned to go for a quick run on saturday and a longer one on sunday, just to check if there’s anything in the tank. Good news is that my weight hasn’t been affected by this recent lull.

    Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    Yeah, I believe you. Couldn’t find a better or more recent pic, but this house looks a lot worse once ALL the decorations are up and it gets worse every year. Also, it’s on a single, isolated row of houses right on the E18 (Oslo-Stockholm), so it sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    I realise I may be in the wrong thread with this, but I used to have to drive past this freak show twice a day for two months a year:
  9. Dean Smith, aka Prep Guardiola.
  10. We are utterly convincing. Twice in a month now, we’ve gone away to a promotion rival, whacked our cocks on the table and had an absolute orgy. We do not fear anyone, and I’m absolutely loving it. Sure, we’ll probably have defensive hiccups from time to time, but the transformation under Dean Smith’s leadership is quite sensational across the board. We are much better organised, much more compact and our pressing game, when it’s on, is a work of art. The attacking movement is sexy and creative, yet appears carefully planned and predictable for our players (while totally unpredictable to the poor sods trying to defend against them.) It’s obvious we’re working on the details, making every single player perform at twice the level they showed under Bruce (who was more interested in the details of the players’ dressing routines, for some reason.) I noticed today how much better we trap and receive the ball. Notice how easily we go past opponents, not just Grealish and Bolasie, but Taylor and Tuanzebe too, even Chester. MOTM? I’ve no idea. They were all excellent. Manager’s performance? Freaking fantastic. Ref’s performance? Don’t care. Up the Villa!

    Jaysus, that really should have been two from McGinn/Tammy.

    We won’t but they’ll probably realise they have to play as well.
