movedYou know how about a month ago that I was saying Manders and I were gonna have our own .com? Well, because of a few things, we couldn’t. But thanks to Manders winning a Visa gift card, we finally were able to! What happened was that we had our hosting site, just not our own domains. What can I say, we’ve never done this before.

Now, I have one current giveaway here and will have another one here as well. I had originally signed up for that specific giveaway with THIS blog (the other one didn’t exist yet) and since most of my readers know where to go for reviews/giveaways, I thought that it would seem a lot easier for them to enter than to have to switch blogs. Speaking of which, if you have signed up via e-mail through THIS specific blog, you will have to subscribe to the other one and unsubscribe from this one. After these 2 giveaways, I will no longer be posting on this one. You don’t need to subscribe to the other one right now as I don’t have everything where it should be.

It has been raining since this morning.

Well, actually it isn’t raining anymore but it had pretty much been raining all day. Why I didn’t think to put on pants instead of wearing shorts, I don’t know. But I have been pretty much in and out of the rain all day in a t-shirt and shorts. And I know you can’t get sick from just being wet, but I think I may have contracted a cold. Naturally, with the swine flu cases, my sister is freaking out that I may have swine flu. Even if I did, the only thing that would have to be done is keep me home-bound. But even with this cold, I probably won’t be getting out much because I don’t want to get other people catch the cold and send them into a frenzy thinking they have swine flu. I don’t want to cause a Central Texas panic just because I have a simple cold (or is it a sinus infection? Huh.). That would make my life a living hell. That would pretty much suck.

I have fallen in love. Not with some other guy (besides Cyber Guy but he already knows. LOL). But with a movie. A movie I have watched over and over agian until I pretty much know what they are going to say or what they are going to do. My new love is “You’ve Got Mail”. Now, I’m not one for Romantic Comedies because of the whole “romantic” part. But because I met Cyber Guy online, it makes a lot of sense. We don’t have meaningful conversations like Kathleen Kelley and Joe Fox do on “You’ve Got Mail” but I do relish the times we have together, for however long they may be. I already know what happens in the movie but my heart beats wildly at the fact that this happens everyday. People sign on, go into some chatroom, have interesting conversations, and eventually end up together. Or perhaps they use no specifics and don’t tell each other their names until they are absolutely sure they can handle everything that will be said. It’s a thought, right?

Maybe the next time I sign into a Yahoo! chatroom, I’ll met some guy and we can exchange e-mails without being at all specific and eventually end up as a couple. Or maybe I’ll just finish watching the movie and move onto the next one borrowed from the local library: Sweeney Todd.

It’s Almost Midnight January 26, 2009

I seemed to have developed insomnia. I will wake up close to 10 AM (unless I have something to do that morning or during the day that requires more energy) but can stay up until 2 in the morning. I’ve never had insomnia this bad.

But yes, it’s almost midnight and I have completely exhausted ideas of what to do online. I’ve “sweeped” (check earlier blogs for more information on what this means), I’ve posted in forums, I’ve sent countless e-mails, I’ve IMed every person online on my Yahoo! Messenger, and I’ve listened to over 3 hours of music on the Ipod. I don’t know what to do now…

This is a meaningless post, so if it’s boring, I apologize. I guess I could go to bed, watch TV before I finally pass out. But have you noticed that even TV has gotten boring? I mean, unless I have digital cable with 200 channels (which I don’t), there is NOTHING on at 1 in the morning except informercials. I have seen the informercial with Air Supply so many times, I can move my lips with them as I am watching.

Oh god, I just realized something. I need a hobby.

Sweepstakes Frenzy? March 11, 2008

What you many not know is that there are at least 1,000 online sweepstakes going on at this time.  There are Sweepstakes with prizes anywhere from free trips, guitars, makeup, gift cards to even $2,000 in cash.  Sounds interesting, but what’s the catch? Well, believe it or not, there is usually one for a few.

For instance, there is this Sweepstakes going  on where you have to submit a photo of you at a nighttime event, along with a caption that explains it. What is the Prize? The First Grand Prize is a Guitar, iPod Shuffle, and autographed CD from the popular band Finger Eleven. Then Internet users actually vote for a winner. As a fan of Finger Eleven, I would LOVE to enter but don’t have any pictures of me out at night. Ah, sometimes I wish this contest were easier than that.

From the same sponsors of the Finger Eleven sweeps, they have another contest where you submit a picture of yourself looking/being geeky along with a caption. What is the prize for this one? A MacBook Air laptop computer and an iPod Touch. As with the other one, users vote for the “coolest geek”.

So where can you get in on the action of all the Sweepstakes going on? Take a ride to Online-Sweepstakes.com. They offer an amazing array of Sweepstakes going on right now. There is a forum when you get tired of filing out all of those entry forms and sending all those entry e-mails.  Trust me, it is worth it!
