Man Declares War on Peacocks
Today I started wvw map completion on my ranger. I got green borderlands done but eb had a 20 minute wait so instead I edited this picture. It’s been pretty smooth otherwise because I’m on JQ and we got matched with FA and Maguuma this week, which is an entirely one sided stomp. Still, the npcs were out in force and chased me all the time I was grabbing those sweet, sweet vistas and pois. They were almost entirely ineffective.

Blur and contrast effects added in photoshop, sweetfx was running during this. My pet is just out of shoot because they hit me directly before I grabbed this screenie. (the name of this file was “welcome to a winter everyone-is-trying-to-kill-you-land”)

Pusheen the cat making some chemistry.

That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way too close to his face.
Pusheen the Cat, more like Pusheen the limits of lab safety

SPARKLING EFFERVESCENCE  

I love Magic Find. But considering I’m already at 100% MF and still get mostly Fine and Masterwork drops form Tequatl, I try to down as many Magic Find items as possibly before we drive him back to his watery grave. The reward system in Gw2 confuses me. You are either obscenely lucky, like my brother who is drowning in Black Lion claim tickets with never buying any gems, or me, who can’t even raise enough funds to become a lv 500 armorsmith. *cue much head-desking and sheepish apologies from brother*
Sparkling Effervescence may only grant an increase of 6% MF and an extra 10% from kills, but it’s the item history that counts. 
Speaking of ‘counts’, I lost count of how many times I plunged to my rocky death gathering charged crystal essence for Ixcic in Labyrinthine cliffs. It was the one event everyone could pull together and get a gold on. Baby dolyak racing was too stressful, furry little jellybeans being blown into nets. But getting a nice stiff drink after electrocuting yourself was a present consolation prize- until we had 60 of them. Then we figured we should actually drink them. This is based off a Moscow Mule, if the copper cup in both pictures hadn’t already given it away.
MJ actually made this one but never got around to doing the write-up. I guess it fell to me. Since I just messed up my most recent sweet-roll attempt, I needed something to be post (I’m so sorry whoever requested sweet rolls, I’m trying, but the yeast didn’t activate and I didn’t let them rise long enough, I messed up- This weekend for sure).

SEASON TWO IS GONNA BE GOOD I CAN TELL

culinarycosplay:

I have two favorite vigors; Shock jockey and Undertow. For now, let me tell you about shock jockey.
Firstly, you find shock jockey in the Hall of Heroes, when you pry it from Slate’s cold dead hands. Or crazy hands. Okay, you get shock jockey, and go to town. You flip every switch and open every door, and get some great loot on top of the hall that you needed the vigor to access. Loot, sweet. But then you realize, holy shit, this really hurts people! Awesome! And you go to town.  
You know how later in Bioshock there’s water puddles everywhere from exploded fire hydrants? Most would find those useful for Undertow, using the wayward liquid to pull their enemies to them. I however use them another way. Port Prosperity is where I seriously begin to run low on, well, everything (See Finkton Tomato Soup for a better description), but the puddles around there offer a unique opportunity. Some of the more heavily-clad Vox Populi are slower, and spend a few seconds standing in said puddles. I use these few precious seconds to zap the water with Shock Jockey. This emphasizes the electrocution, making them take critical damage. EXCELLENT.
This, on top of being able to turn on pretty much electrical object in Columbia and stun people makes it a formidable and explosive vigor. Kinda makes you feel a little like Thor, only a 1912 Thor with a bad attitude, poor parenting skills, and a dead wife. Oh wait that’s Odin.

SHOCK JOCKEY (inspired by spoonforkbacon, check em’ out)
http://www.spoonforkbacon.com/2012/09/blackberry-meyer-lemon-gin-tonics/
5 blackberries
5 mint leaves
T sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
ice
3 oz gin
tonic water
1 highball glass (if you don’t strain it and want the blackberry-goodness still in the glass, there’s enough to fill the highball. if you want to strain it like we did, you can use a smaller glass)
In said highball glass, pop in the mint, blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Using a muddler, pestle, one of those wooden pastry presses that looks like a tiny dumbbell, muddle the mixture. That mean gently press and twist it against the bottom of the glass for about 10-15 seconds, to break up the black berries and bruise the mint. once that’s mixed, fill the glass with ice, add your gin, and ton off with tonic water. Stirr, and enjoy.
After I finished, I strained it into the smaller cup, popped a slice of lemon into it, and brought it upstairs for MJ to try. She really liked it, and said it had the zing of Shock Jockey. It’s not bitter, but it’s not sweet, but it is the electric kind of drink you’d look for with Shock jockey.
