Planetside 2 biolab Scythe assault Vannu Galaxy

August is always the craziest month. So megapost.

Since it's been warm I decided that it'd be nice to do a little wfp (work from patio). I bought another set of string lights to light it in the evening, but also wanted to reseal the floor - it had a leak that didn't really matter since the patio is well-covered. I went with the same floor stuff that I used on the garage annex.

Part of the garage annex renovation has included the installation four pegboard 4x8s. Now I have proper tool storage.

There's some in the study for proper tooly storage.
Taco Party

The Tonks hosted the annual taco party. Tacos, cervezas, pinata - the works.

Except to say wtf Los Angeles. Eight non-commute hours to get to the Central Coast? Not cool, bro.
Fantasy d'ogs of war

I drafted 14/14 in Medieval Gridiron, which put me past the tier-1 RBs when keepers were said and done. I pretty much had to go for Megatron and OBJ.

My next pick was Brees who, by the tenets of Greedydraft, is far more valuable than a lower-tier RB. This, of course, trusts ESPN's predictions and ignores the possibility that the New Orleans offense will be in shambles this year.

This left the undrafted running back bucket pretty empty, particularly when I neglected to quickly navigate the player search and ended up autodrafting Maclin. But with no-brainer starters at QB, WR, and D, I was able to fill the bench with RB prospects that might come good in the tumultuous early season.

By the numbers I should have grabbed Seattle's defense soon after, since they are projected to net 44 more points than a 14th rank offense (the Jets), but knew I could get them as late as the sixth.

Sneaky c4ing a tank and Sunderer.

Traffic can be the worst.

Setting up outside a spawn, killing time while you're waiting to complete the capture.

Just a bunch of stuff flying around.


Nighttime c4ing and, um, a little friendly fire.

The Gates Memorial Footgolf Classic

Footgolf golf ball soccer ball semiirony hole pin flag

Last year the League of Sport did footgolf at the Welk course way up past Escondido. It was fun, but somewhat unimpressive, so this year we tried out Tecolote Canyon.

The first thing we noticed is that the cups are installed properly. Unlike Welk, there isn't a huge lip that sends your ball skipping away if it decides it doesn't like you.

This canyon, like many, has a creek running through it. It his hazardous to left-footed slices and right-footed hooks. Another advantage to this course, over Welk, is that it's not a par 3 course.

Since it's League of Sport, we needed a twist. This took the form of a rule whereby you could wall one opponent shot per hole (tee/fairway) if you were up on strokes (this was a 2v2 scramble).

And any golf event is incomplete without some cart shenanigans, up to and including high centering on the lip of the bunker.

It's a season of upheaval - there's the rona, protests, the Raiders moved from San Fierro to Las Venturas, and I've lost and added a league (RIP bizarro). It seemed like a good time to refresh my team names and graphics, stick to the greedydraft princi...
