19 Mar

sweetsixteengraphic1

This is when the shit gets real, y’all!  Only sixteen remain.  The unworthy mascots have been weeded out and the strong meander their way trough the fallen en route to a potential championship.  The rules:

  • Indeterminable mascots lose.  Mission accomplished.  COLORS AREN’T MASCOTS.
  • Death battles occur on the home turf of the higher seeded mascot.  Important, this is.
  • Identical mascot battles go to the higher seeded mascot, with little exception.
  • Stalemates or deadlocks leave the higher seeded mascot victorious.
  • You do not talk about March Madness Mascot Murder Mayhem.
  • You DO NOT talk about March Madness Mascot Murder Mayhem.

Savoring Every Bite

You don’t need to live in New Orleans to enjoy the local festivities of Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday!  There is something so colorful and fun about the New Orleans’ King Cake that I have to make it every year just to feel like I’m celebrating right along with the folks in New Orleans. 

Fat Tuesday is right around the corner wrapping up the the Mardi Gras or Carnival Season that is so well celebrated in New Orleans.  The season begins on January 6, also known as “King’s Day” honoring the meeting of the Three Wise Men with the baby Jesus.  The hiding of the baby in the cake was to symbolize the finding of the baby Jesus.

New Year’s Resolution

3 Jan

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011 (hopefully).

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

Chase

I feel like a big loser for slacking off with my posting here on WordPress.  I feel like I wrote some pretty cool entries and kind of fell behind due to starting a new job.  I will definitely write more stuff, but in the meantime here is a video so cute that you’ll forget about all the adorable puppies Michael Vick murdered.

The Ten Commandments of Facebook (via Yow Yow!)

23 Aug

Words we should all live by. Break these sacred laws at your own risk.

[according to The Frisky] For all the negative things one can say about Facebook, it would be hard to deny how easy the social networking site makes it to keep in touch with people. But wouldn’t it be so much nicer if all those people had to abide by a few rules of etiquette?
