Things I’m Digging

1. Albacore Chunk White Tuna in water.

Sometimes, you  just have to eat tuna.  One of my resolutions was to eat lunches and dinners from home more often and today I ended up eating tuna sandwiches–twice.  It’s probably not the healthiest option for every meal, but when you’re already running late (another resolution I’m working on), it’s super easy to just grab the can, grab a couple pieces of bread, and go to work.  My cafeteria has condiments readily available so I just mixed it with low fat mayo, pickle relish, and call it good.  Luckily this morning, I was also able to grab an apple and a pepper to munch on, and I had some apple sauce, almonds, and cheese sticks already at work.  Tonight–I was not so ravenous, but we were still hangry and ended up making tuna sandwiches for dinner too.

Ugh. I might not be digging chunk white tuna much longer, though.. when looking for an image to spice this one up, I learned that adults are only supposed to eat chunk white tuna (not the same as chunk light tuna) 3x/month or risk elevated exposure to methylmercury.  Great. 😦

2. Guild Wars 2

This may be where the list ends because, really, that’s what I’ve been focusing on, lately.  I love to play with my guild mates and the game just offers so much variety and challenges.  The game helps to meet some of my social needs because I can link up to play with real life friends, too.  Depending on the mood, we can go exploring, questing, seek dynamic events, fight dragons, raid dungeons, or compete in player vs player action.  Here are some screen shots I wanted to share with you:

Twilight Arbor Nightmare Tree
This is the boss at the end of Twilight Arbor… and this dude is nuts! The sound files of the creaking wood overwhelm the audio and lend to the magnitude of this foe.

This weekend, I’m going to think about some prerequisites and goals surrounding gaming because this one  turns into a time-suck pretty quickly.  It’s so engaging and entertaining that hours can fly by and I barely notice.  One Saturday, I had a piece of toast for breakfast and did not get the urge to eat until 8 hours later.  I guess that’s one way to lose weight 😉 j/k
