Many of you have read my little blurbs about this “new site” that I’ve been working on. If you’ve logged onto my MyBlogLog profile lately, you probably will have seen it before this “official” announcement but anyway here it goes… *drumroll* My new site is :
I’m going to do my best to follow the precedent set forth by fellow parent Black Belt Mama, and only refer to my kid by a cool nickname. And as everyone knows my last name is Mackel, so I guess this would make me and wife’s newest little guy, Little Mac!
Hey kids! The short of it is that me and my wife have a new arrival! She gave birth early this morning to a 8 pound, 9 ounce bouncing baby boy! So I think I’m probably going on a short vacation for the rest of the week in terms of the site. I’ll put a full post up about the new baby sometime soon when I can find the time! (He’s a big boy!)
New pics are up of the Super Mario Bros 3 Nursery. Actually got some work done on it this weekend, and it’s coming along fine. The plan is to have it all finished by this weekend. I doubt that’s gonna happen, but I’m going to give it the good ol’ college effort.
Added some more pics of the nursery. It’s coming along swimmingly. More to come!
Uploaded some more pics. Check’em out.
After spending some time with my Gallery, I’ve finally uploaded the first pics of the Super Mario Bros 3 Nursery! Of course, the pics are the starting ones, that is, they don’t show anything in terms of where the project is going or even some design mockups. But as they say, you have to know where you come from to know where you’re going. They do say that right?
Well, hopefully I have this URL/WPG2 tag right…I’ve started an album that will have all the pics so check it out and leave some comments! http://www.bushmackel.com/wp-gallery2.php?g2_itemId=22
Going right along with the Super Mario Bros 3 Nursery, my friend Steve sent me a link to some boards discussing when to introduce your kids to video games. Well, it actually started as, When to Introduce Kids to God of War. HA HA HA HA. That’s funny. But ppl did say some interesting things. … Personally, I don’t know when kids should see GoW. Off the top of my head, I’m thinking kids should never be introduced to GoW. (Kids being those under like 13) Not saying that I absolutely believe ppl over 13 should play the game either. You know what? I still got at least 13 years to think about it.
If you missed the 4 o’clock news, I’m slated to have a new baby sometime between late May and early June. We’re obviously all a jitter, and running around like crazy trying to get ready for the new arrival. Of course, the wife is doing more than me, but what I AM doing is designing the nursery! For the longest time I didn’t know what i was going to do but on a recent trip to Sears it hit me like all the other pastel colored baby clothes shoved in my face. SUPER MARIO BROS 3. Not only is it great because the kid will love video games, but because most of the colors are very pastelly!, PERFECT FOR BABIES! I’ll make sure to keep everyone apprised on how it’s going and how crappy it comes out.
