Chess is almost like sports. Different positions. Strategy. Two teams of players. Turf war. Here's something I learned -- the markings on each piece explain their movements. A bishop has the diagonal cut into it's top, meaning it goes diagonal. A knight has the L-shaped head. The queen has a multi-pointed crown, showing that it can go anywhere ... You still awake?
Anyway, so I have to give a little speech about my step-dad Ralph Kent (he was a senior cartoonist with Disney for 40 years and people collect stuff with his name on it), so they want me to kinda talk about his life as an animator -- and avid chess set collector. Whaaa? I'm thinking about dropping in a story about the nun, the prostitute and the tax collector stuck in a boat, but something tells me this crowd won't be up for it.
Emack and I did video this afternoon together for the first time since Week 1. That was fun. We were laughing for about 10 minutes before the video started because I was planning on making fun of one of the emailer's names (Mr. Feig), but I didn't think I could do it without us laughing for another 10 minutes and having to reshoot. I also came very close to making Emack say, "I think Barry Zito is sexy." You'll have to check it out to understand.
This past weekend, I went to Dwyne's for an NFL Draft party, made my mango salsa -- it was a big hit! Use Tostitos Scoops to dip:
- 2 mangos (diced)
- 1 red pepper (diced)
- 2 jalapenos (minced)
- 1 red onion (diced)
- 1 cucumber (diced)
- 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)
- Juice of 2 limes
- Salt and Pepper to taste
