Monday 27 *updated*

May 18, 2009

It’s the Monday before my Birthday.

Here’s what you might have missed since last week:

That was about it. There should be tons more but alas, I’m not allowed to do much from my computer at work… M. Bison and co. forbids it.

I should take this time to mention that if you missed the “Big News” in my blog from Last Monday, I strongly suggest you reread it. I’ve heard some people say the secret was easy to find, some people say it was way too hard, and some people still can’t find it…

There will be times where I will hide things in my blog. I do it for fun, and I do it to give you something to do other than skim through it. If you still haven’t figured out the big secret; I’ll formally announce it Next Monday.

For some reason, Our Desktop has stopped working. Of course by “ours” I mean Mrs. Blogmasters. She has no idea what she’s done to it, or what she “didn’t do” she just knows it isn’t working. I gave it a pretty thorough examination; I don’t like what I need to do to fix it, but I’m out of ideas.

I’m currently waiting to hear about a possible opportunity to be a “Intern Blogger” for a video game website. I was hanging out on Twitter one day when I heard about this opportunity. I took the necessary steps, and hopefully I’ll get chosen. Even if I don’t, I’m glad that I’ve given it a chance.

Things to look forward to this week (hopefully):

  • My travels across the state
  • Audio Crack featuring Eminem’s New album
  • An official “Birthday Blog”
  • My first week back to work. (by suggestion of Mrs. Blogmaster)

And that is all I have for this week; For now at least. I’ll try to sneak in the “One Fresh Stir-Fry” Password of the week later on today.

** This Just in ** 

Say “Quesadilla my way” @ One Fresh Stir-Fry this week for a free topping. I don’t think I need to remind you all, but this place is a GREAT place to eat; So great a place that they don’t even know that I’m giving them free publicity !!!

A special “Sak Passee to all of my Favorite Haitians as today is “Haitian Flag day


Free Ribs ’09

May 16, 2009

This space is reserved  for anything that might happen while I’m out getting free ribs.

It is 8:10 am, and I am getting ready to leave my house.

I get here at 9:18 and there are already about 20 people out here. I had plans on getting here earlier, but someones phone died.

Moving on, I would like to take this time to mention that Shane’s Rib Shack actually doesn’t open until 11am. There was a lot more publicity for the event, and there were more people here I think.
MellownMighty got here 925, and another 4 people arrive by 9:30.

Oh and I would like to give the “hater of the year” award to the lady who wouldn’t let MnM skip, I don’t think it was that big of a deal for ONE person to skip, but then again I had food at home.

About 9:40 the Manager steps out and says that they will hand out the shirts at 10:20 …

Apparently there’s a rumor that the fliers mentioned free sides… I see a fallout on the horizon something very similar to…

So to ms hater I have a question… So since u left the line and your husband in line, are we allowed to tell you not to cut the line ?

Speaking of line cuts… This is getting a little out of hand. I counted at least 4…

A storm is brewing…

10:13 and it’s a healthy line, not quite 100

It’s 1020 and no sign of the shirts…
People are still in good spirits and no fights or arguments broke out.

Shirt distribution started at 10:29

Bloggers need ribs too !!!

Bloggers need ribs too !!!

I got 29 ( I was 11 last year )

MnM was 31, and she actually almost didn’t get a shirt, the owner kinda looked over her…

My super cool camera man was # 30
and his Arab Money homeboy was #28

Mr and Mrs hater were #s 26 and 27 respectively because we let them skip so the four of us could eat together.
Last shirt of the first wave was # 88 at 10:33

LOL @ a blond getting #69 and not getting why everyone wanted her picture…

Yup... and she has a kid, she insisted on telling us that.

Yup... and she has a kid, she insisted on telling us that.

Shirt #100 given out at 10:40am


I had to out run my friend for this shirt. He's got more money, he'll be ok

I had to out run my friend for this shirt. He's got more money, he'll be ok

5 people promptly show up afterwards  looking for shirts, my condolences to their stomachs and wallets…

I would like to know why people expected to show up 20 minutes before the place opened and expected to get a T-shirt; You should have woken up early like this guy:

I heard he was at the Rib Shack from about 6 or 7am

I heard he was at the Rib Shack from about 6 or 7am

Special shout out to my ribs photographer for taking a bunch of the pictures today.

He also gave me a ride to the Rib-Shack.

I Would like to take this time to state that I do NOT sound like this guy I don’t care WHAT my photographer thinks. For the most part, it’s been pretty peaceful out here, no fights, no arguments, no one got hit with a bottle

A news crew arrives 10:53… You’ve already been scooped by an amazing blogger. If you’re in the Tallahassee area, check ABC news around 6:30pm I might be on…

*Edit: I actually went ahead and recorded the news report; I think I did a better job talking about the event. That’s what happens when you arrive late. Enjoy. *

No, that is NOT me eating before the young male who is talking about the free ribs and pool parties; i’m pretty sure it’s him.

From what I gathered, there were about 10 people out here from last year.

shame on # 22 for wanting to be on the 6:30 news for this event; I hope he isn’t asked for his opinion on the other Free Food situation…

And a bigger “shame on you” for the news guy trying to get in the personal space of everyone while they’re trying to eat. I understand that there is probably NOTHING else going on in town right now; but please sir, respect the boundaries of everyone trying to eat Free Ribs.

Funny quotes of the day:

“Aww, Sorry Ms. Becky maybe next year dear” – #36. She said that for EVERY white girl that didn’t get free ribs.

“put THAT in your blog ” – MnM

and “I didnt’ get my Ribs !!!” – My photographer planned on saying this after we all ate to see if he could get more ribs…

I didn't get my Ribs !!!

I didn't get my Ribs !!!

With a full stomach and a plate of empty bones, I must say I truly enjoyed myself. They reminded me that no matter WHERE I go, their ribs will reign supreme.

I noticed that the crowd was very diverse: I didn’t see any Asian people or any Hispanics. MnM said she saw 2 Asian people… I thought everyone liked ribs. (slightly NSFW)

And a thunderstorm starts to end the event. We end up leaving at 11:47.


Monday 26

May 11, 2009

It’s the Monday after Mother’s Day; I would like to take this time to say Thank you to all the Mothers, Grand-Mothers, God-Mothers, and Mother-figures out there doing what they can to shape the future movers and shakers of the world…

I’ve been pretty lazy about blogging this week; I’m sorry, I’ve just been enjoying my vacation. I’ve also been playing a lot of NCAA Football with my Online Dynasty. We acquired a new coach, he’s going to be in charge of NC State. Personally, I’m not doing as great as I’d like to be going into my conference play (1 – 2) Hopefully I can run through the Pac-10 unscathed and at least make it to the Rose Bowl. Let me take this time to remind everyone that this is all done on a Video Game. We all have Playstation 3’s and we all play NCAA Football against each other, like the real College football teams, only computerized.

The only thing I vented wrote about was my Uncle trying to get me to buy into an Online Pyramid Scheme. Other than that, the week’s been cool.

My dad’s Birthday was on Saturday. He turned 40, and I gave him a call to wish him a Happy Birthday. He’s been a great Dad to me, even through all my shenanigans.

This is a friendly reminder that THIS SATURDAY is FREE RIBS Day @ Shane’s Rib-shack. I would like to let all of my readers know one thing: PLEASE do NOT treat this place like KFC  !!!  this offer is available to the FIRST 100 patrons; not 104, not 117, 100.

My Birthday is 10 9 days away… Soon to be Mrs. Blogmaster says she has something special planned. I’m hoping it’s a PSP. or a new T.V.

and that’s about it.

*edit* Did you know that one of my Favorite cartoons growing up was the Transformers?

Just thought i’d let you know.

Oh wait…  If you are reading this right now, you are super clever, give yourself a pat on the back. Here’s the date for the wedding, I’ll try to give more details later.

Monday 24

April 27, 2009

It’s another Monday… *yawn* forgive me, it’s been an interesting weekend.

OneFresh Stirfry Password: get a surprise when you say “New Menu” I don’t know what it is… but if you find out before me, let me know.

time for a countdown recap:

  • 3 weeks and 2 days until my birthday
  • 2 weeks and 5 days until free rib day (remember first 100)
  • 5, 5 days, 5 days until graduation !!!

Everything else has happened already:

  • The Graduation party was a success. Lots of people were in the place, and we had a great time. However, I will have to learn to plan better for my next party. More food, and maybe a better time frame will help… I had people strolling in around 11 even though the party died down around 10… A special thank you to everyone that did get there on time (even though I and Ms. Blogmaster was late)
  • Classes being over is such an amazing feeling. when FINALS are over (this Friday) I might do a cartwheel or 2.
  • Being away from the office for 3 weeks is a blessing and a curse. Yes, that is 3 weeks I’m not making money, but that is 3 weeks away from the mother hens. We needed some time apart !!!

Things that happened last week:

On my Facebook Status I have the following-

D. Blogmaster Sums up last night’s party as such: My friends were able to come through and Everyone enjoyed themselves. Ra’Jon makes great drinks and there was a Great cake from Publix. I’ve learned that Entertaining guest requires a little more planning and YOU need to Read my blog later today/tomorrow for more details

Let's play a game

Let's play a game

Somewhere in that message is the password. There are a few rules you will need to keep in mind to go forward:

  1. Start after the colon
  2. Letters will be lost. YOUr mind must be sacrificed to truly understand.
  3. The answer must be entered in lower-cased letters for entrance
  4. The password is a real “dictionarilized” word. (Thanks to Peach Cleaves for the proper term)
  5. I will not distribute any hints.
  6. Have fun.

I’ve actually decided to keep it locked for 2 weeks. I am well aware that it’s finals week for a lot of students and you don’t want to “Waste” any brainpower on something that won’t result in a grade for a class. This is meant to be just a fun pastime. If for some reason you really can’t figure it out and REALLY can’t wait; send me an e-mail. Dtownsend23blog@gmail.com


Free Ribs !!!

April 13, 2009

I wanted to be the FIRST person to break this news:

on May 16th, 2009 Shane’s Rib Shack will be giving free ribs to the first 100 people to show up !!!
Ms. Blogmaster and I went Last year, and we were #10 & #11 respectively.

I want to pass this news on to all of my readers, so they too can have free Ribs…

Just one thing; If any of my friends manage to get to the place before I do… (I plan on being there early) please feel free to give your friendly blogmaster a Line Skip :). If I happen to be there before my friends, I will give a Line Skip to the FIRST person who gets there and tells me that they read about the event on my line*

I will be reminding you again as the event gets closer.

*This offer can and will be revoked if I am past the first 80. I love my readers, but I will NOT give up free ribs for you.

p.s. I’m still working on this afternoon’s Probate, I’ll try to have it up tonight.
