Koozies, One GOOD Way To Break Up with a Girl

10 Worst Non-Koozie Ways to Break-up with a Girl

Advice to Men from a Women

Get a Clue

I have a lot of guy friends that are  ALWAYS asking for advice on what to do when they are no longer interested in dating a girl any more.

My first “SERIOUS” response is “Just make a personalized koozie with a heart felt quote, she’ll understand!”  at which point we laugh and then the REAL discussion begins.

First of all, before I get into theTop 10 Worst Ways to Break-up with a Girl, I must say 1 thing based of an old proverb: Honesty is the Best Policy.  Don’t be a coward and get to the point.

They’re IS nice ways to say, You’re just not that interested. 

Let’s Begin the Count Down

(I used an article from askmen.com to assist me with the list)

10. When your drunk- Usually when under the influence, we tend to think things are funny when not, have a lose tongue, or can’t get the point across exactly the way we want to.  Also on the receiving end we can perceive all of the above VERY negatively.

So, NEVER break-up with a girl when she OR you are messed up. Don’t mistake your liquid courage as intellect!

9.Stale Sayings- “It’s not You it’s Me…:”  It is by far one the worst things you can.  Just keep it real!

8. John Dear Letters, Facebook, Email and any  non personal contact methods.  Show your face and be a Man

7. During a Date or after asking her to hang out- Don’t ask her to come over to hang out and then try to break it off gently. Guarantee, you will probably hear something like: “You invited me over to tell me THIS???????????”

6. After making commitments- What’s worse than to buy a dog or rent an apartment or make ANY investment for that matter if you are not married or planning on spending the rest of you life with her. Don’t even talk about these things. We as women have tendency to read a little to into things.

5. Leave it to Assumption- NEVER beat around the bush,  get to the point. Don’t just make little comments, be straight forward and direct.

4. Inventing Problems- This will make it worse. Seriously, DO NOT go looking for problems that don’t exist. Once you finally break it off she will remember all the different ways your coward a** couldn’t be real.

3.In Public- This one should be common sense. Receiving bad news in public creates embarrassment. Let her down gently in a private setting, PLEASE

2. Cheating on her- Wanna end up on dontdatehimgirl.com?

1. Disappearing Act- If you are scared and think avoiding the girl or situation will make it easier on you, you thought wrong. She will be at your doorstep sobbing within 36hrs.  Guys, don’t deny it, YOU know you can’t handle a girl crying. She will end up sleeping over that night and you’ll back to square 1.

So guys, keep these tips in a mind and your opportunity of dating her best friend might may still be in your future. LOL

 I spent a good hour  just looking at the New makeovers that people recently posted of themselves, some funny, so good and some, well….. not so good.

The Makeovers starts with your picture of course which you must connect the dots along the face, eyes and mouth, then the fun begins.

First, choose your hair style and color. You can choose from the latest red carpet hair-dos, particular celebrity looks as well as ever day hair styles.  Change the color of the style and add highlights as you see fit. After you must re-size the hair fit your head or you may come out looking like cousin IT.

After you do your hair take a sip fromyour drink and move onto to the face. Foundations are found from the palest flesh tones to the darkest, so if you ever curious to know how you would look with another skin tone play around with this feature (you will laugh). Here you will also choose your blush, and powder. Get your face all made up and move right along to the eyes and brows.

Oh!  the eyes,  to me this is the exciting because not only can you apply as much eye liner as you want, but also you can change the eye color completely.  The next  two options for the makeover before starting a new one (I promise you will do this more than once) are the lips and accessories.

Once you’re done make sure to share you latest look with all of us!

Get a Koozie and “Avoid the Ghetto”

A Map App that doesn’t use Koozies to Guide Them!!!

Your Koozie Guide

Your Koozie Guide`

The “Avoid Ghetto” App

Back in Januaray, Microsoft created a newly patented app for smart phones that has been labeled by some as the  “Avoid the Ghetto” app.

 Basically, for those whom are not aware of this new product, the app is geared to assist pedstrians and motorists by providing them with a GPS map that will get them to their point of destination while avoiding any problematic neighborhoods or areas as well as harsh weather conditions (of course,critics are not focused on this portion of the feature).

 The “Avoid the Ghetto” app will use criminal statistics and reports (source of reports is unknown) to determined which areas to avoid and which are safe.

FOLKS, You know longer have to strap on your air force ones to be able to fly out of a sticky situation, you can avoid them all together!  However, I have heard hear say that koozies can get you out of these areas, but that is pure speculations, so don’t take it seriously!

Anyways, lets take a look at the opposing view points and see where we stand:

Principles of the “Avoid the Ghetto”:

Microsoft centers on drivers, passengers, and pedestrian safety through preventative alerts: in the same way that the sex offenders are required to have all personal information made public.  The laymen terms the app is meant to make you feel safe, and give you the confidence to know you will arrive at your destination unharmed from dangerous situations…

One expert argued that the app was created with concerned fathers at heart to ease the worrisome thoughts of “Where is my daughter”.  The app is not meant to be racists…, how sweet!!

“Avoid the Ghetto” is RACIST:

 The argument is that the app discriminates towards specific neighborhoods, primarily where the population is african american and hispanic.

 Dr. Chinn author of “Technology and the Logic of American Racism” told NPR news  the app could reinforce stereotypical views of certain races and socio-economic classes.

“In much of dominant American culture,” she told the news outlet. “There’s an assumption that criminality and being poor and not white go hand in hand.”( Unknown.”Microsoft ‘Avoid Ghetto’ App Sparks Controversy“, 01/19/12).

In Conclusion:

My personal opinion on this matter is simple. Based on what I’ve read I would have to say if the app depends on statistics and criminal reports for its routing process, than it is not classifing the neighborhoods by race but rather by the activity that happens within the specified area.

If you yourself classify this as “racist” you must have the pre concieved notion that crime is more present in neighborhoods where minorities lives. Just Sayin

Best advice I can give is make customized koozies and have a cheery day :)

Koozies in the Waves

Koozies in the Waves

We love koozies and we love surfing. The lastest big surfing competition was held on Merewether Beach in Newcastle, Australia which was the CHIKO Pro Junior Surf Championship.  The  reports say the surfing conditioning were  favorable and remained constant through out the competition.  Conditions on the final day were reported to be around 4ft with favorable wave power accompanied by light onshore winds.

 SURFS UP DUDES AND DUDETTES! 

In the Men’s Category

The men’s CHIKO junior pro winner was Jesse Mendes who hails from Brazil.  He had a final score of 14.9 which crushed his competitor Moroccan native Hamzi Bokiam who came out of the heat with a final score of 12.25.  Mendes 19 years-old commented on his tactics from that day. saying he was lucky.

After watching the surf from the shore the goof footed surfer said he saw some nice lefts coming in from the north and paddled out to catch them. As the clock was ticking and the waves were not coming in as he expected he decided to move more South.  He claims all his waves came from no where and he grabed some knarly rights which allowed for some killer backhand turns off the bottom and vertical lip smacks.

I bet Mendes’s mom accomanied her teenage son to the tournament and brought along her custom koozie with his name on it to support him until the end!

In the Woman’s Category

19 year-old Bianca Buitendag who also won the 2011 ASP World Junior Champioship event at Narrabeen in 2011 defeated Ellie-Jean Coffrey a well known and highly respected champ.

Buitendag used a simple tactic knowing she did not have priority in the competition so she just left the Bombs all to Coffrey, while she simply went and caught some good waves on the inside where the rights were forming up really well.

As far as wave count is concerned Buitendag blow Coffrey away. Coffrey only caught two waves during the heat.  Reports said the big sets where coming in more and more sporadically as the heat continued.  This means Bianca was smart and used her position as not being priority to her advantage…. YOU GO GIRL!!!

Congratulations to the both of you and can’t wait to see you in the 6 star! Both Jesse Mendes and Bianca Buitendag took home the first prize of $1,800 and Hamzi Bokiam and Ellie-Jean-Coffrey took the second place prize of $900 each.

Sponsors of the Event

KoozieZ.com is hoping to Sponsor one of the CHIKO events in the coming years as our customer base expands to the land down under, where koozies are known as beer huggers.

 

 

 

 

New Site New Design New Kooziez.com

Kooziez.com has been reveamped and redesigned to better the custom koozie experience.

So, we recently decided to redo our website.  Needless to say it was a lot more work than anyone ever expected.  We started by building a design with 99designs.com.  The design process is not as easy as designing custom koozies.  It is easily a 4-6 week process with design proofs, back and forth, voting, etc – it was NOT EASY.

Once you pick out your design, the hard part starts.  This is when you have to take your design and incorporate it into your current website.  This is not as easy as 1-2-3… this is more like rocket science meets astrophysics.  I would say printing koozies is about at 10x as easy as coding a website.  Coding is a process that takes a person who is highly trained a lot of time to get everything right.  Attention is in the details and needless to say – the details are expansive.

Finally, once you get the site designed, you have to get it incorporated and indexed with the search engines so that clients can find you again – this is not as easy as 1-2-3 – I wish it was that easy.

Well – the new site is up and we are selling beer koozies – enjoy!

Custom Koozies are now better at kooziez.com

NFL Week 13 Looks A Little Weak

NFL Weak 13 Has Very Little To Offer

 

So, Week 13 or should we say Weak 13 looks a little, well let’s say – weak.  There are no marquee match-ups!  The games you thought would be good – say the Pats and the colts – well the only thing that is good about this game is the Colts are one step closer to landing Luck.

Or say the winning record teams – the Texans *my super bowl pick* and the Falcons… well this is going to be nothing more than a boring run fest as the Texans have a great running team and a 3rd string rookie QB in Yates… but isn’t there another 5th string draft choice that is starting today – hmmmm Brady any one? Yates, is this going to be the start of something special?  I doubt it but we will see…

The Saints and the Lions is probably the best match-up, but without Suh do you think the Lions really stand a chance – the only way to beat the Saints is with a brutal pass rush and without Suh – that hurts…

So, I guess Koozie time on monday will really be about printing custom koozies.

NCAA vs. NFL

QB Vince Young scoring the winning TD

Have you ever compared a College Football player’s performance with that of an NFL player’s? This question actually sparks a universe of conversation amongst football fans all over the world. True Football fans can tell the difference, and this is a topic of some very heated discussions between fans, which is why I’ve taken the liberty to publicly display my personal opinion on this matter.

 

You see, in our great nation The United States of America, we’re all raised to be Football crazed since we’re toddlers. This frenzy has driven Football to be the #1 sport in the country along with Baseball (which in my opinion, is too slow a sport). From Pee Wee (Pop Warner) Football to the NFL, it’s part of our lives since we can remember. But when it comes down to pondering when our athletes perform their best, I’d have to say it’s during the college years. If you’re great in college and enrolled in a Division I College Program, you’re almost guaranteed draft to the NFL before you even graduate. It’s what we call a ‘stepping stone’ into the big leagues, where everyone makes the big bucks. Similarly, when in high school, getting a full scholarship to any major university or college in the country would be considered a stepping stone. Take a look at the Philadelphia Eagles back-up QB Vince Young, for instance. Vince Young studied at Madison High School in Houston, TX, which is a 5A Division Football Program, the highest level of high school performance in the state Texas. He received a full scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin, during a time of great pride for their Football Program. Ranked in the BCS Top 25 all four years under his leadership and Mack Brown’s coaching, they went on to beat the University of Southern California for the National Championship in 2005, where Vince scored the winning Touchdown with few seconds remaining on the clock. If you ever watch the last two minutes of that game, you will see the ambition and determination of this young athlete to win the Title, while remaining in awe.

 

Since being drafted to the NFL, Young’s career has quieted down and his popularity diminished to mediocrity practically. His performance shows caution and lack of ambition, which he once showed in college. This is due to the fact that once in the NFL, players in general, wish to stay there and will do almost anything to keep it that way for as long as humanly possible. This is understandable, considering the fact they’re getting paid millions of dollars in contract to play Football. Young’s case is a perfect example; how does a National Champion lose the starting position at QB after every single fan in the league expected him to be great? You can answer by stating he’s a ‘Washed-Up QB’, which we all know is probably the greatest truth of all. In my opinion, Young figured now that he’s in the NFL making millions, why should he bust his rear trying to win the Super Bowl? My answer is, “Because it’s what separates good players from Legends!”

 

In the NCAA, players perform their best in order to get scouts and teams interested in them, so hopefully one day they’ll get drafted into the National Football League and help their families economically. Once the goal is achieved, there’s no need to work as hard. This is a bit sad, considering every child in our nation has a favorite NFL player. Yet, every once in a while you find a player with the ambition to go the distance and become a Legend, but this very rare. Truth of the matter is, most professional football athletes had their best performance during college because they wanted to make it in life, life in the NFL.

 

Now that you know what I think of about College & NFL players, I’ll go ahead and watch NFL Sunday with my buddies and drink beer, while handing out Koozies of my favorite team, the Houston Texans.
