Going Out of Business…. Sorta.

11 06 2010

I think this blog has run it’s course.

The updates have been pretty scarce lately (I haven’t missed it)

I’ve decided to go a different route.

I really only started this blog to keep the family updated on our day to day activities and to provide pictures of the kids.

It was kind of a pain in the butt. I had to think of somewhat witty things to say (while having no aspirations of ever being a writer), edit photos, resize and export photos, upload the photos to a server, link then to the blog, then format everything. In other words… I had to do a bunch of crap that I didn’t enjoy.

All that’s over now.

I’m moving this operation to Flickr.

Now I can just click on a photo in iPhoto, add a caption, and click one button. I can handle that.

It’s a win-win, you get more high quality pictures, and I have less to do.

You can also leave comments, but you may have to create a Flickr account of your own. I’m not sure about that, but it’s free.

So, head on over and check it out.

I even have a Flickr app for my phone, so I’ll be sure to add at least one picture a day.


Main Event – Winner Revealed

26 05 2010

Thank God this is almost over with. I am so tired of creating polls.

Never again.

Sarah Elizabeth takes it. I am still having trouble getting Miss Fire to agree to it though.

I may have to request that the Dr give her a few “extra” drugs. Maybe then I can sneak it onto the Birth Certificate.

Now that I think about it, maybe I should just request a Certification of Live Birth…… I hear those are easier to forge. I can put whatever I want on that one.

The bracket is heating up now.

Soon we will have our Ultimate Intercontinental Heavyweight Babyname Champion.

Round Three

24 05 2010

Day 3 of this? Man, this is really dragging along.

Only one tie this time. I didn’t have a coin handy so I flipped the TV remote. (button side was heads)

Anyway…. Here’s the bracket.

Get to voting, let’s get this over with.

Sweet Sixteen

22 05 2010

Round one results are in.

How did your favorite do?

I have shown the results and updated the bracket.

There were two ties, so I had to flip a coin on a couple.

And So It Begins

22 05 2010

Pick one in each poll. If you REALLY like one, vote on it as often as you want.

In the event of a tie, I’ll flip a coin.

Here’s a link to the bracket. I’ll keep it updated as the contest goes on.

Feel free to make your predictions for the winner in the comments.

How It’s Going To Work

20 05 2010

Survivor: Baby Name starts Saturday morning.

I need 32 names in all, so if I don’t reach that number by tonight, I will add a few of my own into the mix.

At Midnight Saturday you’ll see 16 polls – each with 2 names to choose from.

Choose your favorite in each poll. The polls will stay open until 10 pm. You can vote as often as you like, but I’m keeping the results hidden until the polls close that day.

The next day there will be 8 polls made up of the winners, and so on, and so on, until we finally end up with just one ultimate name.

Miss Fire will then say “I don’t like it”. I’ll pretend to go along with her, but I’ll try to slip it onto the birth certificate while she’s preoccupied with the whole labor thing. I can’t make any promises, but I’ll do what I can.

Alabama Call Out

19 05 2010

So far we have Survivor: Baby Name entries from the great States of Tennessee and Georgia, but the Alabama Gang has been silent.

I can see your IP addresses people. I know you’re lurking around.

Don’t make me PhotoShop one of your heads onto that picture and tag you on Facebook.

I’ll be nice and give you one to get you started – Ali Bamie Lewis
