Monday 19

March 23, 2009

Happy Monday everyone. Even though I woke up a little later than I planned, I’m actually feeling
pretty good.

As always, let’s start off with what you may have missed last week.

  • I give a little advice, got an AWESOME coupon from a friend, and tell about an upcoming opportunity.
  • I ask poets to send me some of their work.

That was about it for last week. Sometimes I have busy weeks here, sometimes… not so much.

**Ncaa Dynasty results **

Cal beats ECU in their rematch from the National Championship 31-21 thanks to a late game 85yd INT for a TD. Illinois had a romp against LA Tech, and USF handles UCF in the battle of I-4. This week Cal and and Illinois have bye-weeks, and ECU and USF meet. USF is currently undefeated and ECU is hungry for a win; who is walking away with the win ???

**end of Dynasty results**

This week, get a free drink at One fresh when you say “I know 1”.   How is your March Madness Bracket looking? Mine? it could be better…  FSU let me down pretty badly, I guessed they were going to the Sweet 16, but Wisconsin wasn’t hearing that.  I was still able to select 12 of the sweet 16-ers; Don’t let me down guys.

Well, like I said previously, I met Salt’s “better half” this week; Honestly? I’m pretty neutral about him. I don’t “dislike” him, but I don’t “like” him either; Just really neutral about him. Not sure if that’s a good thing… I’ll just keep an eye on him.

Not much else is going on this week, still trying to gather some poetry for my soon coming poetry corner. I’m not sure what I’m doing with it yet, it could just be a place for poets to get their stuff read. Maybe have themes every once in a while… maybe even turn it into a contest.  Seriously, if you or anyone you know is a poet; send me an email with your work. Rules and regulations for this entry can be found here.

Talk about FISH sightings; I wake up to a Fish advertising a massage service: $15 for males and ladies. She is certified and license so it’s not one of those “Shady Craigslist” things…  She also offers a $5 bonus for guys; I’m not sure what it is though; but she insists it’s not a “happy ending” well, I trust her :). If you need her contact info, lemme know. Maybe you’ll get a discount if you tell her I sent you… *maybe*

Listening to Steve Harvey’s Radio show…  there was a guy who essentially was talking about the need for black people to stop blaming everything on “the man”. Yes, in certain situations, we are ill-equipped/represented; but “the man” isn’t the one on the corner selling drugs, robbing your fellow man, and impregnating every women being “loose” with every woman they shake hands with. We as a people need to do better.

Well, I’m back from Spring Break !!!

Not that I really DID anything… but I’m back 🙂 *Lyrically, NSFW*

How was your Spring Break?

Here’s what you may have missed last week:

  • Ms. Blogmaster finally joined the facebook cult community. Speaking of which, Facebook received ANOTHER graphical update. Personally, I’m all for staying on the cutting edge… but come on, slow it down a little please? and shouts out to Oprah Winfrey, who I know will be my friend for REAL (on facebook) and not just me being a fan of her show (not that I’m really a fan… but I was under the impression this was how she and I could be friends)
  • I’ve been offered an interesting opportunity.

Honestly, I spent most of my spring break playing video games. New Season of NCAA football started. ECU lost to Illinois 24-0, and Cal lost to USF 24-11. This week; ECU plays USF in a battle of those seeking their first win; USF faces UCF in “The Battle of I-4“, and Illinois battles Louisiana Tech.

Als0 this week, I get to meet Salt’s Boyfriend… Over-protective brother suit- power extreme !!! (Flashback intro)

I’m not going to cause problems, but I will ask many questions. I will have my eye on you, sir.  

OH !!!

As I mentioned at the end of last week’s blog, I told you about a new blog that has emerged from one of the twisted minds in my inner circle: A Blind Mind. Last week, he posted an opinion on the double standard in our society dealing with promiscuity. I suggest you check it out, It’s NSFW, but honestly, which of my friends really are ???

**Guilty Pleasure alert**

So many moons ago, there was a Online Soap Opera err, Weekly-Updated story line revolving college students (many of who belong to a NPHC organization) at a fictitious HBCU. All of a sudden, they stopped the updates. Sad, I found other things to pass the time. It was brought to my attention that not only is the series back, but with a new spinoff. It is known as “As The Sands Burn” or ATSB for short. According to the website, they update every Thursday, we’ll see; but for now, go get caught up and enjoy.  If you want the original series: go here.  I know the setup is really confusing but remember this order: 3,4,7,2,1 That should be the order in which you visit those links. I suggest you bookmark it. I’d like to interview the Creator (and new author) but i’m still new in the blog world.

**End Guilty Pleasure**

 

Soo… We went to Harry’s This weekend. As many of you may have remembered, I didn’t have a great experience last time. I sent them a “Letter of concern”  and they sent me some gift cards. Since I like discounts, I couldn’t help but give them another chance.

Honestly?

They did their job quite well. I don’t know WHAT happened to them after I sent the letter, but they seemed to have undergone some renovations. As soon as I stepped in, I was greeted by both hostesses, and they were very nice, and we were seated pretty quickly. Our server was actually pretty nice; very courteous, and checked on us just enough so it wasn’t creepy. I think the manager stopped by our table about twice to check up on us to make sure our food was good.

The food was good; I ordered the Salmon, and Ms. Blogmaster ordered The Harry’s Chicken. It actually came out in a timely manner; the food was warm, properly seasoned… no complaints.

So, Harry’s Seafood-Bar-Grille; You get my seal of approval again. I will now officially insist that my friends and readers head out to their local Harry’s (namely the one in Tallahassee) to check them out, enjoy their food and say “The Blogmaster sent you”. I doubt anything will happen, I’m just curious to see what would happen.

Speaking of code words… If you say ” Menu in Production” at One Fresh Stir-Fry, you will get a free veggie with your order. 

Sometime this week, there will be a colla-blog on a very interesting topic. Keep your eyes peeled for it.

Graduation is officially 6 weeks away. Just gotta pass those classes

It’s Spring Break !!! 

but I’m at work… *sighs*

fortunately, it’s only today and tomorrow. I was originally going to work Wednesday also… but that fell through as soon as I walked in the office. Do you have plans? take lots of pictures for me. 

Last week, I only posted on Monday, and Friday. I had a mobile moment, but I didn’t post it fast enough. so here it is:

So I’m in line at the lights place… I happen to see the line diva again; being diva-like as usual…

Someone get this kid!!! I am standing in front of this 7-year old who wants to get “Michelle” shaved into his head.
If his momma has her way, he’d get a Mohawk

Really? I remember getting MY name in my hair when I was younger… But a girls name? Which part of the game is that?

This weekend Season 2 of “The Dynasty” will be starting. It’s not too late to jump in; send me an email.

Cal lost the National Championship by way of a late INT, and they are hungry for revenge. Will they be able to finish the job this year? Will they MAKE it to the big show this year? 

ECU won the National Championship, and look to be repeats; Can they pull it off again? or was it a fluke: the pollsters seem to think so by leaving them unranked for the preseason

USF had an undefeated Season and looks to repeat and possibly getting into the National Championship. Can they do it with playing a powerful FSU at home? 

Illinois obtained a  new coach during the off-season and will try to become coach of the year; with their extra tough schedule, will they survive? 

This year, the 4 coaches have agreed to play each other in a round about playoff situation amongst themselves: If one coach comes through undefeated, his team will deserve to be in the national championship. If everyone loses here and there, there will be QUITE the debate this year. 

and Finally… I mentioned Friday about how a friend of mine has joined the blogging world. Today, I would like to officially introduce the world my readers to “A Blind Mind“. Words will not be able to describe the mental ride you all will be in for; just stay tuned and be entertained. I’ll more than likely give summarry wrap ups on what I read over there to remind you all. He’s also been added to my list of blogs to the right so you can find him faster. Enjoy.

Well, It’s Monday and you know what that means – Weekly update !!!

As always, here’s what you might have missed since last week:

So, this weekend, “Salt & Pepper” spent the weekend at my house. Pepper goes to school further south, and decided she wanted to get together with Salt for a reunion tour. Salt unfortunately was sick, so we didn’t do too much, but the things we did, we had fun. 

For example, we checked out the Black Actor’s Guild performance of “Stream of Unconsciousness” which was a bunch of skits, and the order they were performed were determined by the crowd. To avoid “bias” in voting, the names of the skits were kept cryptic, and the audience had to shout out numbers (much like the price is right) for the hosts to determine the next skit.

In all honesty, I enjoyed the performance. The skits were good, the performers were great. Shout-Out to the “Dad” who shook some sense into his daughter for “ruining her life”. He played that part very well. oh and #16 was DEFINITELY the best skit. 

That was about all we did this weekend. Other than that, we hung out at home, and went to the mall; everyone had a great time (I Guess) maybe next time Salt & Pepper get together everyone will be healthy, and I can show them around town. 

This week starts the new “year” of NCAA Dynasty. Once again, if you’re a PS3 Owner, and you want in on this Online Dynasty, get in contact with me.  If you say “are you doing your best”  at One Fresh Stir-fry, you get a sushi sample. 

That’s about all I have for now; M. Bison is threatening to hit me with a Psycho Crusher if I don’t get to work

P.s. the purpose of the links in the story are for you to check them out and either get a laugh, or educated on certain topics.  So please; get the clicking !!!


Ncaa Football 09 Dynasty

September 9, 2008

We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog for an IMPORTANT bulletin;

A very good friend of mine (Anime Sistuh) has been having some internal biological problems, and things were looking very grim, but she got the phone call today, and everything is OK; she will be able to have lil’ Anime-dressed babies soon enough; you’re in my prayers… Vote for me for Godfather !!!

And now, back to the blog…

So, me, Ada81, and Ja51(I am using abbreviated versions of their Online IDs, but they are VERY real friends of mine) all decided to do an Online Dynasty for Ncaa Football 09. In a nutshell, An online Dynasty is as many as up to 12 people who decide be the “Head Coach” for different schools. This is all for personal supremacy and bragging rights among your friends.

Unfortunately, i don’t know 11 other people who have a PS3 AND NCAA Football 09, so I’m doing it with 3 people. I Picked Cal, Ada81 picked USF, and Ja51 was given Eastern Carolina. I say given because he wanted either them or Florida State Univ., and we have a “strict” No FSU rule: since all 3 of us are fans of the school, I figured it would be best if NONE of us got the school, besides, I wouldn’t want the task of taking down my own school !!!

We also decided that for the 1st “Year” of this Dynasty, we won’t schedule any games against each other, consider it an experiment to see how far each team can get with their default schedule, and not dealing with any other human players yet. Not to worry, I will be dominating soon enough :).

Moving on, right now we’re waiting on ECU to get selected and ready to go. We’ve decided we’re gonna have a Sunday Deadline; that means you need to play your scheduled game for that week, speak to your recruits and get ready for the next team all in a week; just like a real football team. Unfortunately, ECU hasn’t quite accepted their invite to play in our league, so we are waiting on them to get a move on…

If you want in on our little Dynasty and you are a PS3 owner… drop me a line with your PSN name (NOT your password, OR your email, just your PSN ID) and the team you want to play with (you can’t be FSU, USF, Cal, or Eastern Carolina) and you’re in !!!
