Here are the results for the final pairings for round one.
13. Intergalactic Gladiator vs. Light Motifs
Intergalactic Jon ran into Dr. Nemonok whom he met before, a short while ago, in the future. Dr. Nemonok is not from the Intergalactic Psychological Association but he actually serves the Galactor the Evil Galactic Overlord. Long story short Jon kicks a brain jar onto the floor, dumps out the brain and then smooshes it beneath his Leather Personnel Carriers. Heroic if I do say. Miz UV on Light Motifs points out that Cindy McCain looks alot like Jeannie's wedding "mannequin". I would have to agree (click on over to see pics). She also made a list of potato dos and don'ts. One of which I can get fully behind: As far as chips, I like Lay's salt and vinegar best.
Winner: Intergalactic Gladiator
14. I Think, Therefore I Am Frustrated vs. Steve's Nude Memphis Blog
Think Frustrated has a comic posted where he gives advice to the future by writing on one dollar bills. The advice is so deep it could only come on a one dollar bill. Steve has a long long post about the dilemma that the far left Democrats have since they have a black and a woman candidate for the presidency. More specifically he talks about the problems the feminist have with any woman choosing Obama because he is a man, a black man. And the irony just gets better from there.
Winner: Steve's Nude Memphis Blog
15. Slapdashittery vs. Much That Is Hidden
On Slapdashittery we learn that a lunch date with a bank stop over turned into a bank date with a lunch stopover (sans the lunch). Also we see that change for the homeless does not flow freely from the pockets of the unemployed. O' Tim on much that is hidden has some pics posted from the lunar eclipse which are pretty impressive. During the lunar eclipse all I got to see was clouds... It wasn't that impressive.
16. Kate Smudges In Earth, Paint and Life vs. Mimi says
Kate posts that it is her one year anniversary for her blog and that she is thankful for all the things that she has learned and the people that she has met through her blog. She reposted her first blog post witch ponders the word smudges, and what gives her blog its name. Mimi talks about fond memories from her past. When she was little her parents would buy her one thing for the holidays and she had deiced on either a ring, a book, or an hour horse ride. After much consideration she chose the hour horse ride. When the day finally came she prepared herself with all sorts of horsey goodness treats only to find that all the horses and ponies were already rented out to other people, however there was a donkey that she could ride. Well, as expected the donkey would have nothing of it and Mimi got one hour of sitting atop a donkey with hardly any riding to be had. She said it was still the right choice.
Winner: Mimi says
The brackets for round two and the second chance competition will be up soon.
