A Penguin Tale

As you may or may not know Nippy the Penguin from Crazy Penguin Ramblings was the victor of Trivia Corner Reboot. He possesses the most useless knowledge out of all of you. His prize is this post about him and his blog.

I actually have the pleasure of knowing Nippy (real name Jesse) outside the blogosphere. We have been working together for the past 2 1/2 years at the same establishment (the name of the place we work is being kept confidential to protect the innocent). The biggest thing we have in common is that we both have a thirst for movies. We both love movies. We were playing the movie game months before I posted it on my blog. We have added different variations to it at work.

If you have a love for video games, old and new then you should go visit his blog. He has fun video game theme challenges. He writes reviews on new games that he has played and old games that he misses. He also posts cool videos. He also rocks at the movie game. He doesn't just write about video games but I would say that's his main focus. He loves penguins and knows a lot about them. Who doesn't love penguins? I want one as a pet. I hear Wayne Newton has one, he keeps it in a special refrigerated room.

He is a small time blogger, not that what he writes about is small but that he is still just getting his feet wet. He doesn't post as much as the bigger blogs out there. He started blogging back in August of '09 then stopped for awhile and started back up again. I don't know what his plans are for the blogging future.

As Jesse he is a fierce contender when playing board games. He has beaten me in a few Scene-it games and I am waiting to extract my revenge on him. I did kick his butt in Madden football though and a few Wii sports games. We have recently been borrowing DVD's from each other. I normally am very anal about my DVD collection, I don't trust people but I trust Nippy. He needs to catch up on late 90's, early 2000's films while I need to catch up on the 80's classics.

He is a good man. I am glad to know him in my real life and also as a blogger buddy. He is currently my 4th string best man.

Trivia Corner will start up again on July 19th. I need to give your brains a rest.
