By the way, the best part of Club Live is that you don't spend hours earning points and enter for a chance to win a prize. You do the puzzles, spend the time, and order the prizes. Then you wait. Microsoft ships slowly.

Club Live

Do you love word games like word searches, crossword puzzles, word unscramblers, etc?

Do you have a hotmail account?

Would you like to get some nifty free stuff without paying for it?

Do you have some spare time?

Club Live is the place for you.

I'm currently puzzling (grinding, slogging, trudging) my way to a Kitchenaid Artisan mixer. In the past, I've earned video games and a Xbox 360 wireless controller. Microsoft isn't giving away lame prizes (well, they are, but only to the impatient people who don't save their points up). Sure, it takes time. TANSTAAFL people. Personally, I'd rather give my time for a new kitchen gadget than never get one (face it, keeping my van moving is more important to me than having an awesome mixer).
It also sharpens your brain, heightens your vocabulary, and did I mention the prizes? Free stuff!

Please note: I don't get ANYTHING if you follow the link and play and win stuff. I do really like that wireless controller, though, so I wanted my friends to have the same opportunity to win stuff.

Please also note: Play hard, sometimes they change the prize lineup. I didn't need a Roomba anyway. The mixer is better.

Belle of the Blog: Rise Up with Fists!

I thought this was worth linking to.

Belle of the Blog: Rise Up with Fists!

I just realized...

I never posted my pics from the 4th! I only took a couple, but they were neat. Here they are:
Sean with Sparkler

Still Sparkling!

Sean playing with Kaylin and Alyssa

And this is from Early June, when I went to TN to see Caitlin. It's a picture of my Comma Cat who, like Karen and myself, rarely ever gets caught in front of the camera:

Update on Pics

For now, see my t-mobile pics here: http://s30.photobucket.com/albums/c330/graceisme/Pics%20formerly%20found%20at%20T-mobile/
even though they're all mixed up and uncaptioned. grr.
more later when i figure more out.

UPDATE: t-mobile isn't evil, merely slow. for now, the sharing function is defunct, but it will be back! until then, i'll try to organize my photobucket album, get some titles on those pics, and keep it faithfully updated.

My T-mobile pics

Thanks, Kare! If I hadn't seen your comment asking where my journal on T-mobile had wandered off to, I wouldn't have known that it had changed! I didn't even know T-mobile had COMPLETELY changed the format for that service. When i went to try to figure it out, it really seemed like they had fed all of my old pics to some cybermonster as a snack. I completely wigged out. I think I would have cried. I found the pics. I'm okay now, and so are my pics. Unfortunately, the new site isn't nearly as friendly as the old site, and I can't figure out how to share the link without giving out my password. I'm working on it. Updates soon with a link to go see my pics, one way or another.
