*I would like to officially apologize for having the blog post so late into the day. I had a meeting about my financial future, then I went to go see a movie. *

Thanks to Disney for that mini history lesson about this traditional song. This is the first Monday of being a graduate of THE Florida State University. My heart and mind has pretty much went on vacation from all of the “events” of the past 2 weeks. Here’s what you might have missed since last week:

The rest of the week was filled with me studying and taking finals. Hopefully, I did well enough to NOT take classes over the summer !!! Graduation itself was quite the event, and it wasn’t without it’s blog worthy moments. I intentionally planned on giving graduation it’s own special post… but then I decided to give everyone a lot to read today !!!

My parents came into town for this big event. The first big event was my mom’s discovery of my new potential merger (kudos to everyone who figured it out, and “better luck next time” for those who didn’t ). That in itself took a good 15 minutes; but when Mom found out… she was mappy (mad + happy after a Fusion Dance)  and she didn’t want to speak to anyone because of the secrecy… Dad knew also, and said nothing, but that’s besides the point. Saturday Morning, we attempted to show them the new Blogmaster lair, but unfortunately, there were no available models. We then went to the Graduation Ceremony; if you weren’t there, or didn’t see it here, let me summarize it for you 🙂

My feet had no choice but to get comfortable.

My feet had no choice but to get comfortable.

As I sat in my chair and waited for the Doctoral students to march in, I started to notice it was an unbearably long line. Personally, I’m all for success and accolades of fellow students, but can we move this along please??? I also noticed that T.K Wetherall was unable to speak this afternoon. for some reason… his words didn’t quite come out correctly. You can tell my family was from the Caribbean since they didn’t laugh at ANY of the Florida State Jokes. I can tell they weren’t laughing because I was able to see them from my sit… they were right in front of me. Do you KNOW what it’s like to have the family NOT laughing at the school jokes? I think I’m going to have Bobby drop by and visit them…

I know my parents were happy that I was finally graduating, but I’m sure they would have liked if I stood during the announcements of degrees with distinction, but B’s & C’s get degrees is all I have to say about that !!! This was supposed to be filed under graduation mobile moments, but I was really unhappy with my cap not fitting me. Somehow they gave me the wrong size !!! I was able to switch a really good friend, and although some relief was provided, the cap was STILL too small.

My eye was  constantly attacked by the tassel. Even after I switched the tassel to the other side… the tassel was relentless !!!

Coolest part of the ceremony? the speaker timed himself. He promised he wouldn’t take more than 15 minutes, and as a man of his word; he did.

Quote to take home: “Love will not buy your son the GI Joe with the Kung-Fu grip.”

The Swine flu scare has made it’s way to Town: there are hand sanitizers on the way up to shaking the hands of the dean  and president. ( FAMU had an even bigger scare; they were handing out masks, and pretty much no one shook hands as they crossed the stage)

After watching this whole ceremony I have decided that if and when I go back for another Degree, I shall have them call me D. Blogmaster. As I cross the stage, I shall do what ever dance is out at that time. I think they owe me for BUTCHERING my name .  (p.s. ma’am… GET YOUR CHILD)


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


Graduation Mobile Moment 1

April 20, 2009

I would like to take you on a special edition of Mobile Moment: the Graduation edition. In these final two weeks, as mobile moments dealing with graduation arrive, I will place this special “tag” on it. Enjoy.

Its 227 and I’m currently standing in line for my cap and gown. It seems like there is no end to this line

Are we there yet?

231 and the line is moving along better than I thought

It’s 2: 37 , and Just like that, I know have my Cap & Gown, well on my way to graduation which is 2 weeks away.

the Gown is black, it just looks blue, and I'm happy the tassel isn't pink !!!

Now, all I have to do is figure out who gets my 9 Graduation tickets…  =/


Monday Post 12 *Updated*

February 2, 2009

Hey Everybody 

It’s Monday. Super Bowl Champions have been crowned (I was supposed to go to a REALLY good party, but something came up).

Jennifer Hudson did an AMAZING job singing the National Anthem.

The Commercials this year were alright. I’m intrigued by the new Star Trek, saddened by not getting 3-D glasses to watch the commercials , and perplexed by the “new” “The Fast & The Furious” Movie.

Oh, and I loved the coke commercial with the online avatars.

and the coke commercial with the “A Bug’s Life” meets “Peter and the Wolf“. 

Am I (and the land of the ‘Noles, Rattlers, and Eagles) The only one’s who’s going to miss out on Denny’s kindness ? on Tuesday (2/3/09) they will be giving away FREE Grand Slam Breakfast’s to everyone. Free. Food. ALL of America. 

*The Denny’s Website was unavailable for comment as of last night*

Here’s what you might have missed since my last Monday Post

There was my fist Locked Post by way of a young E-Thug

I gave my first “I beat the Game” review.

Someone yelled about someone going to hell literally.

MellownMighty had a warm & fuzzy moment.

I introduced and implemented my facebook stalking new funny facebook status watch. (Don’t forget send me emails by Thursday.

There was bear on bear Violence in an office this week.

I had an interesting photo shoot

Finally, I discussed the possibilities of using the BCS system for graduation.

I picked up the “Afro Samurai” game over the weekend. I haven’t started playing it yet, I got other games schoolwork to tend to first.

** Happy Birthday to a special Canadian Bunny who turned 21 today; Enjoy the day and don’t get into too much trouble, and don’t end up in a Canadian Tabloid please 🙂  ** 

Ok, I am thoroughly convinced that FISH stands for “Females In Secret Holdings from others”

I was chatting with #5 Last night *rewind* 

A few days before #5 had a mysterious FaceBook status alluding to the fact she had a surprise for a lot of people. Naturally, my “CSI-Senses” were tingling. I started asking questions, but all she would tell me is that it “involved nicknames” and that “a lot of love went into it”.  she also said that #11 might know something about it…

Anytime you’re ready #11 🙂 

 

So… 

it’s official, I’m getting a dog. 

Not just any dog, but a dog I actually want.

img_0114

Yes, this little dark brown ball of fuzz will be MINE. 

I hope…  

He’s a Pomeranian, and I’ve already started thinking of names for him… 

Fuzzmaster sounds like a winner to me … 

 

 

 

 

I’m presented with a few options as far as getting him.

If we buy him now, we could:

  1. Try to “sneak” him into our complex and duck the pet fees and additional pet rent.
  2. Pay the pet fees and additional pet rent.
  3. Let him stay with a “Pet-Godparent” until we move. (is now taking applications)

*sighs* I’m at a crossroad… (NSFW!!!) *OK, here’s the real one*  I would hate to miss out on that ball of fuzz. He’s laid back, he wasn’t yipping and yapping like most “little dogs” like to do. and Mrs Blogmaster thought he was adorable which means she would be happy with him, which means I Win !!! 

What am I to do?

** Update ** We’ve decided to wait until the summer. I want to thank the Foster Mother for opening her doors. We reserve the right to use you on a later basis


Graduation BCS Intro

January 29, 2009

As many of you know, I Love College football. I love it to the point I started my own online Dynasty with some friends (which by the way is still waiting on the National Championship) 

Today, I recieved an email from FSU today. Pretty much it explained something about graduation, and which website I needed to check out for more information. 

Here’s where things get interesting;

According to my email, everyone gets 6 tickets; and if you need more you can petition for more depending on supply/demand. 

Problem! 

As many of you know (well, some of you) I have a big family. 

How big? 

let’s just say my siblings alone put me at -2 tickets. 

*sighs*

This isn’t including my parents, relatives, or even Mrs. Blogmaster. 

So here’s what I’m going to do; instead of treating the situation like the rest of the sports world and conduct a playoff competition, I’m going to treat this like my favorite sport and have coaches, computers, and members of the press decide who gets to go to the Graduation !

OK, apparently I’m not allowed to do it that way… something about a lawsuit

So,  I will turn to you my voters fans;  who gets to go?

Do I give out automatic bids to my parents?  

Does one sibling get more votes because of a stronger strength of schedule (birth-order) ?

What about Mrs. Blogmaster, do I give her the #1 seed just because ? 

I have an aunt in NY who wants 3 seeds for her conference in NY.

This is going to be fun. 

 

Don’t forget to send me funny Facebook Statuses that you come across.
