WRUP: How to cook a quiche

    
36
Not this.

Ingredients: 1 refrigerated pie crust, 6 large eggs, 3/4 cup of whole milk, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, 1 cup chopped ham, 1 cup broccoli

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Break eggs into a large mixing bowl, whisking together the milk, salt, eggs, and pepper.
  3. Wait, hold on, I screwed that up. You should have rolled out the pie crust first. Roll out the pie crust, leave the bowl to one side for the moment.
  4. What do you mean you don’t know how to roll out a pie crust?
  5. Fine, I’ll show you. Where’s your pie dish?
  6. How do you not have a pie dish? You’ve lived in this house for four years!
  7. Well if you knew you didn’t have a pie dish, why did you want us to make a quiche?
  8. Why would you think you could make this with a cookie sheet?!
  9. This is why things always go wrong for you, Mark! This is exactly why!
  10. No, you can’t just put the mixing bowl in the oven!
  11. We are breaking up!
  12. I mean it this time!
  13. Optionally, top with a light sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Serves 2-4 people.
  14. Answer What Are You Playing.

Bonus question: What bad habit are you proudest of breaking?

Andy McAdams: At this point, I’ve no idea. I’ll probably poke my head into Final Fantasy XIV and continue the grind for some Allied Races in World of Warcraft; I also just downloaded Dauntless to give it a whirl because why not?

Bonus question: Procrastinating (most of the time); I adopted the Bullet Journal method and it changed the way that I work and I get tons more accomplished with less stress.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Probably some Star Wars Galaxies Legends this weekend. I’d originally wanted to muck around elsewhere, but there’s been a huge run on my chef vendor this week, so I need to do some major cooking to restock. Some dude came through and bought like 14 crates of Chandad this week. It’s gonna last him like 500 hours of playtime. I know I’m not the only chef out there people, and my prices aren’t rock-bottom. I dunno where all these buyers keep coming from, but it’s awesome.

What bad habit are you proudest of breaking? I mostly broke myself of tearing my nails by getting obsessed with nail polish and painting them. Now to break myself of wanting to collect all the colors.

Carlo Lacsina (@UltraMudkipEX): Insane beginning of the school year for me, so it’s been busy. This weekend, I’ll probably be playing Teamfight Tactics. I just got hooked on it. Kinda weird how I’m playing a League of Legends game, but stranger things have happened.

I think the bad habit I’m most proud of breaking is seeing something as inherently negative. I’m still working on it, it can get pretty tough, but I get more fun out of something when I see the glass as half full

Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): I am a fool. I thought I could hop right in to the latest trials in Dauntless, but it turns out I have to first do several quests to get to them, so that will definitely be a priority. I’ll also be doing the usual RP shenanigans in FFXIV as well as probably do a bit of Star Trek Online.

I don’t really know that I’ve utterly broken any bad habits, but I have at least tried to lessen a few. I suppose one of them would be less drinking. I still like beer and whatnot, but I’ve learned to like styles of beer and different tastes instead of trying ti get rip-roaring drunk. I guess that’s as close to a broken habit as I’m likely to get.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog):Still plugging away at leveling in Final Fantasy XIV, as I do; other than that, though, I’m slowly picking at games in my backlog and playing through them. I actually had Destiny 2 after last year’s BlizzCon promotion! Turns out that I needed about two hours to be done, so… yeah, not doing the account migration there.

A lot of the stuff that pops into my head as bad habits has more to do with forming good habits instead, but one of the absolutely most valuable habits I broke was to stop treating “wrong” like something that needs to be corrected in my spare time. I wrote at the start of the year how one of the most valuable things you can learn is to make your points and stop talking, and it’s honestly made my life a lot better to just recognize that I can just walk away from debate when it’s not going anywhere.

Mia DeSanzo (@neschria): I have a class that has just started that I need to catch up on already, so I will be playing ArcGIS. I hope to get in a little bit of Riders of Icarus and/or something new. Maybe Pagan Online or Dauntless. If I finish my assignments quickly so that I have a lot of spare time, I will also look for a solution to a glitch in the Miraak questline in Skyrim. I am on the very last part, but I can’t interact with my subdued dragon.

I am proudest of breaking the habit avoiding scary or unpleasant things that I have to do. Life is better when you do what needs to be done when it needs to be done instead of dragging things out.

Samon Kashani (@thesamkash): It’s been a long time coming but I think I might actually finish the Guild Wars 2 Skyscale quest this weekend. It’s been brutal, ugly, and overall reduced my desire to even play the game but I can see the light. All I have left is to visit some locations… I think. Also plan on playing Legends of Aria or Crowfall, we’ll see.

Perhaps the best habit I broke was being too shy and overthinking about what others thought of me. Be yourself and don’t worry about it!

Tyler Edwards: For the last several months I’ve been designing a tabletop RPG as a hobby, and the first playtest is scheduled for Monday with my friends, so I’m scrambling to finish that up. Not sure what I’ll do with whatever time is leftover. Perhaps more Anthem, or maybe some StarCraft II co-op. Haven’t played that for a while.

Bonus question: Stigmatizing mental illness. I spent most of my life holding a viciously negative view of anyone with mental health issues (including but not limited to myself), but in the last few years I’ve met some really good and inspiring people who also happen to struggle with their mental health, and it made me realize that someone can have emotional scars and still be deserving of love and compassion.

Every Saturday, join the Massively OP community and staff for What Are You Playing, our roundup of what MMORPGs and other games we’re hoping to play this weekend (with a bonus question or two for our amusement). Tell us what you’re up to! Go off-topic! And don’t forget to have fun!

This week I continued my Fire Emblem: Three Houses addiction which I don’t intend to break :) This game is seriously a masterpiece. I think I would have finished it in 3 days if I wouldn’t have to work or treat my medical condition. To lay down in the bed and experience such a wonderful story… it is really one of the best times of my life. My favorite part is the characters and especially your students. You really get to know them and every secret and lie they have very slowly. And I enjoy that process very much :)

Other than that? Well, I am waiting for WoW Classic. I didn’t play back then (even though I am in my thirties), but I heard so many good things about it that it piqued my interest.

Bad habits? Nooooo… I don’t have one. How could you possibly think that!! You are very rude.
(Maybe the most important thing I learned in my life to not to worry on anything and just looking for possibilities. Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t. With that, I worry much less than before.)

this week was largely taken up by a trip to an extended family member’s cottage in a different part of cottage country than where i normally reside. but i did take time to cook up the beginnings of a song i want to collab on with some friends, attempt to smuggle some high profit illegal goods in star citizen, and get some serious progression into legends of aria where sundial and i formulated our plans. i also hung out with friends keen to hit up that wow classic action (which has been fun rewatching the old vanilla era machinimas and other creative bits and memes and such.)

anyways here’s 3 hours or so of legends of aria action solo and group wise, including some heavy duty crafting i think in this one.

My free week in FFXIV was really a free couple of days given my work schedule…I enjoyed revisiting Limsa Lominsa and vicinity, but it didn’t sink its hooks into me far enough to get me to resubscribe. You’ll need to come up with another plan, Square Enix (I mean, a week of play time rather than calendar time would probably do it).

Finished the Clockwork City in ESO the other night, enjoying it immensely. But I’ve rather run out of steam there too. Checking in daily on the crafting writs, yet I may hang it up for now.

Currently playing, as I was mulling last time, a new Qeynos character on EQ2’s Kaladim server. Never really being a fan of the Isle of Refuge, I hied myself immediately to New Halas to start and had a grand time. But now that I’m actually in Qeynos, I’m at that awkward stage of picking out my path through quests that I’ve either fully outleveled (in the city) or on the verge of doing so (in Antonica). Probably should just launch myself into the wilderness.

I may be up for a month or two of WoW Classic when it launches. “Hardcore” gameplay or antiquated systems be damned, I just want to wander the Azeroth of memory again.

Wait, can you even level on New Halas in a Time Locked server?

Indeed you can! No EQ2 Classic this.

I’ve had the finger hovering over “Remnant: From the Ashes”, if I decide against it the rest of the weekend will be filled with Anthem and/or FFXIV.

If you’re a fan of stuff like Dark Souls or Monster Hunter it’s a pretty good time. Playing solo though puts much more emphasis on gunplay and kiting.

Been unplugged from pretty much social media and gaming news for the last week: it feels good, so I figured dropping by my favorite weekly roundup would be cool. But now I also feel like a jerk for the “might not be around for a while” thing I wrote last week: technically it’s been true as this is the first time I’ve hit this site in a week, but here I am a week later when I did sound like (and did intend to be) I wasn’t going to post for the next few months. But posting in WRUP usually gives me joy, and given the reasons why I’m stepping away from most online interactions, eliminating the things that do give me joy seems stupid.

Anyhoo, I’ll start with the bonus: not going to include quitting my addictions (a: low hanging fruit for a cheap pop from the crowd; and b: “habits” doesn’t feel like an appropriate or weighty enough term for them), so the bad habit I’ve broken that I’m proudest of this week would have to be my hypocrisy of saying how much I hate Valve and Steam while still using that service all the damn time. Since I’ve been going on about eliminating the things that don’t give me joy, keeping it around also made no sense. So, I uninstalled Steam this week, in the process giving up my large-ish library, and have set about on the challenge of trying to have a rewarding PC gaming life without it. I truly believe that we’re now living in a time where it is becoming more and more possible everyday.

Now, I’m diving into my back catalog on every other service and the consoles whilst I wait for the majority of my most anticipated games of the year to drop in the next two weeks. Seriously: Control, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, Man of Medan, Astral Chain, Catherine: Full Body, and Greedfall (hoping this one gets a surprise release on GOG, EGS or Origin, otherwise it’s sadly off the menu); plus there’s also my free trial of the Ubisoft subscription thing that starts next week. It’s going to be a packed (and expensive) couple of weeks… but none of that is here yet. So as I eagerly await gaming nirvana to arrive, I’m tooling around a little bit in SWTOR (another bad habit of hypocrisy I should break: saying I don’t do subscription MMOs anymore, then re-subbing to this one at least once a year) and Anthem, but mostly diving back into Final Fantasy XV on my PS4 and finding that it plays much better with a controller than it did with mouse and keyboard on the PC.

Well, I’m going to sign off for now wishing you all happiness and health. Going to take a look at what the rest of you are playing, and leave you all with this thought: freedom does not exist if one is not allowed to reject that freedom for bondage of their own choosing; or if they are punished for doing so. Take that to mean whatever you choose it to.

I’ve got a four day birthday weekend starting tomorrow so I’m ready for it to be 10 hours from now already, lol. FFXIV I’m finally leveling a healer (WHM) and actually trying to learn how to heal with it. All while also weaving in PvP to build up Wolf Marks and get that GARO gear for the titles… got 6 more jobs to level up to 60 (they’re all 30+ at least) and get the stuff for. Warframe’s kind of fallen off to the side a bit because my interest in Monster Hunter World has been reignited, even though the PC version isn’t getting Iceborne for 4-5 more months. But trying to juggle both since they’ve got their events and all that going on.

Then there’s the question of WoW Classic. I’ll worry about that on Monday.

I’m playing the waiting game. Just cannot do Retail WoW anymore, especially not after playing WoW Classic.

All the other MMOs I have available just don’t seem to have the same magic anymore either.

So, I wait. I wait for Monday 10:00am Pacific Time so I can create my characters on one of the new WoW Classic servers so as to avoid the inevitable hours long queues on all the current ones.

While I am waiting, I think I will drive a truck somewhere doing a job in American Truck Simulator. I sometimes wish I had chosen to be a big rig long haul truck driver instead of a software engineer. But then I probably would not have had the time, skill, or money to build computers and play MMOs! :)

Just been hanging out in FFXIV with the cool kids.

Although I logged into a level 49 Bard, I had zero clue about the game since I have been away since re-launch. I ended up starting a new rogue/ninja which has been fun and has gotten up to 36. This game ages well!

One thing that hasn’t changed is the MogStation, a convoluted portal from days of MySpace, that you must use to sub. I wonder how many people have went through a trail of this game and wanted to sub, but tapped out after having a look at the process. This was one of the reasons that had kept me from trying FFXIV again and I thought for sure it would be overhauled by now.

Only other thing on my gaming plate is watching TI9 which has been great as usual. Finals are tonite and the pool had reached beyond $34M, but it is not Fortnite so it is not newsworthy.

I’ve been submerged in Final Fantasy 14 pretty much non stop since SHB launch. While playing the HW MSQ again on a new character I ran into this scene and immediately snapped a screenshot.
