    :D:D:hug::hug:Okay a non pvp, I hate someone, lets troll our nemesis thread. If or when you snack while playing UO, what do you nibble on? And before you start,:D I am not making sexual innuedos so save the comments. I like Peppridge Farm goldfish and Chex mix, but I don't eat the cereal part. And beer is not a snack!( and never eat Cheetos at your computer, your keyboard will be orange)

    So discuss????

    Seaweed seasoned with sesame seed. Dried squid sweet seasoned with, yes that is correct, sesame seed.
    Pickled fish viscera. Soy beans in pod.
    All nice while playing

    I am a bit of a health freak so I eat:

    -Unsalted Alomonds
    -Home made deer jerky
    -Bottles of flavored water
    -Unsalted/unbaked sunflower seeds
    -Fresh broccoli/green beans
    -Gum with xylitol(sp?)



    I adopted the system that for every hour I spend on the computer, I have to do 15 minutes of exercise. My weight training and MMA take care of about 4 hours of computer time...but days I don't work I'm usually on the treadmill jogging, and cursing myself for doing little more than staring at never changing forums.

    not to get off on a rant, but something that truly bothers me: All of the over tanned females(and some males) that are 20-30 pounds over weight. If they would break their 1-2 unhealthy meals into 4-5 SEMI healthy(I'm not talking tuna and broccoli, maybe baked chicken and a sweet potato, oats and strawberries) healthy meals, and step onto a treadmill and WALK half an hour rather than tan, they would lose that thirty pounds.

    Case in point: My ex became a beautician/spa specialist. She does nails, hot wraps, etc. And started getting lazy(she was a Kiwanis award winning cross country runner in HS) due to the nature of the job, and began tanning to make her look better. Her skin started to get dry and hurt, and she gained 15 pounds in about a year. I convinced her to start walking a small stretch where many joggers go with me every night, and quit tanning as much. She went from 7 days of tanning, to 3, and 140 pounds to about 120.

    Food for thought, and my daily rant about unhealthy behavior ^^

    So far, in almost 12 years of UO I have never eaten while playing. I always take a break and read the boards instead, while I eat. ;)

    It's ok.. leaves your fingers smelling like fish though. Wash up before you go out on a date.

    2 types I enjoy, really. 1 is sold in package, and is type of "jerky". Salty and has garlic, soy.
    The other is from deli section. Is dehydrated squid, strips, with sticky sweet red sesame coating. Very tasty! May be sticky, but does not make hands messy. Not that kind of stickiness.

    Edamame? Good stuff. You do anything special to them?

    I usually snack on crystallized ginger or dried fruits. They don't leave your hands greasy.

    I do not snack at all while on the computer. I will though always have either a diet pepsi or an ice tea with me ...on a small table OFF of my desk.

    I used to have my soft drink on the pullout drawer that is attached to my desk...but with two active shelties ...um that is how I lost a keyboard once before. Knight jumped up,chasing King UNDER the pullout drawer, he hit his head on the underside of my pullout...spilling an entire can of pepsi upward, and onto....my desk and keyboard. :) I had to buy a new keyboard. :)

    So now I have a small stack table well below my desk behind me below well below....anything electronic...that way IF the dogs are goofing off...it will spill onto the carpet..not my desk nor keyboard. Carpets can be cleaned ...keyboards with pepsi all inside em...are destroyed. :)

    But no snacks cuz I DO like Cheetos...besides begging shelties they love cheetos too my...keyboard would be full of cheeto dust...and cheesy fingers. :) NO thanks. :)

    IF anything...would be a granola bar...if I would snack while on computer. I prefer to snack though.. while tv watching if at any time. Nachos..with salsa my fav snack...prefer to be away from computer when slopping salsa on meTostido corn chips. :) Last salsa was chipolte YUM I ate the entire jar of it in under a week.

    Pumpkin pepitas, rasins, unsalted peantus. Almonds/walnuts if I have them. Sometimes a soda, mostly water. Peanut butter M&M's on occasion.

    Very good stuff. I have a recipe to toast them and then make them into a dip. Very good and still fairly healthy.

    I do the same, but I always have to be eating. Ever since switching from weights to explosive movements and sprints and such, I take in about 5-6k calories a day and always feel hungry.

    My explosive movements come in the bathroom. Chicken, rice and spinach. It's easy to prepare in bulk, and then throw into tuperware to re-heat...la

    I am completely dumbfounded as to how the hell you beat Haha to this one. There is no way his scat senses weren't tingling when that one hit the boards. My confidence and faith are shaken a bit by this one.
