Went to the gym yesterday and used some machines I've never used before. Chest press one and another with cables that allowed presses and butterflies. On the latter I had a "oh this is easy, maybe I should increase the wei... omg have I never used these muscles before?!" moment on the butterflies.
That's the one the muscleheads hog.  Good on you for trying - the trick is establishing a routine where you go do it automatically.

Didn't see any muscleheads. They may have been in the free weight area or go to gyms that cater more to the musclehead demographic.

I'm pretty happy about this:  http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=17686.0

-Go have a look.  There's some seriously sophomoric humor, 'cause this was a roundtable story done by a bunch of forum boyz, and of course there was some no-class humor - but we got serious about it, and I think it wound up making for a neat little pulpy space/time adventure with a little romance.  (I mostly wrote the romance.)  Good dumb fun - and we really fell for the love interest...

Posting chapter 1 has gotten me off my dead butt and finally doing something I've put off for nearly seven years - finishing editing the thing into credible English.  The primary author was a 19 year-old German who had immaculate grammar, sober, but not so much for a lot of the story.

I'm doing my second editing pass on chapter two right now.  It's gonna be a relief to get this off my chest.

Chapter Two finished - that was the point I stopped editing as we went, 'cause big creative disagreement, and by the time it was resolved satisfactorily, too much work had piled up.

Chapter Three begins slightly over halfway through, and I recall resuming editing towards the end; I'm probably about half done, now, which is real progress.
:danc:
Thinking I'll pace out posting new installments one a day...

Have you heard from Geo?
I PMed him advice about where to go to chase women early last month, then gifted him a Shop birthday cake on his leap year birthday three weeks ago.

I know the proximate cause of him disappearing, but not why he was in such a mood.  Is there any particular reason you ask at this juncture?  He's certainly sorely missed.  I've fed the boy biscuits; of course he's missed.

Oh I miss his razzing, and his contributions on naval matters, particularly. I also like his photos.

More than that, whenever there is a tragedy in another country or city, I always wonder if everybody I know there is okay. The same for their loved ones.

So while I figure he has his private reasons for where he spends his time, I asked out of concern for his physical and emotional well being, and a memory of a difference of opinion about how to deal with ISIS.

Oh right - something happened in waffle-land.  Mom was wondering if he was okay, too.  You can try PMing him at CFC...

Neat - the editing was going smoothly enough that I didn't want to go to bed.  Going to bed anyway...

...And a good job that I did - up at 7:45, close enough to enough sleep, and my brain is almost booted up for the day...

Until now the battle had been proceeding smoothly. The enemy was outflanked and had been driven from the reactor housing, but against the reactor itself the matter canons were strangely ineffective. Rounds simply-stopped-in mid air.
