Happy Anniversary, Blog! Let's give some stuff away...

The Undead Bar Association blog in one year old today!  To celebrate, some of us went out for a nice dinner.  We went to a Japanese restaurant, in honor of Naomi, who is in Japan.  We feasted on traditional Japanese foods:
Texas Sushi, Monkey Balls, and Viagra.

Just kidding.  Most of us ordered chicken, one person ordered shrimp tempura and one person ordered a bento box (Texas sized).

But that's not the only way we're celebrating the anniversary!  The blog's got a whole new look, starting...now!

Best of all, we're giving away prizes!  Starting next Tuesday, we'll give away one prize a week for the rest of June 2011.

Here's a look at the prize packages:

1) Giveaway for Tuesday, June 14 (drawn from all entries submitted by midnight of June 13) - SILENT TERROR
