so we got this thing in the mail. typical junk mail from a local car dealer, with a scratch-card prize winning thingy. so Michelle took it in to see if she could score a prize, and it showed up as a $1000 “on line shopping spree.” woohoo!!! they told her to come back today to claim the prize, but they were rather short on details. we were hesitantly dreaming of a new digital camcorder, flat panel monitor, maybe even a new compy? well, it turns out it was a load of crap (surprise, surprise). the “spree” is only for www.selectyourgifts.com, which only sells cheap crap and charges more for shipping and handling than it’s worth. but if you’d like to help yourself, feel free to log in with ID: KS97252 PW: 8665. if you’d like some magazines for $5 a year, or maybe a desktop waterfall for $7, go crazy.
oh and this is from the same car dealer that a friend of ours had quite an interesting experience with, involving police and lawyers and such. yuck. needless to say, we wont be shopping there for our transportation needs.
congratulations to Katie and Joel on the birth of their new daughter Eden. such a cutie! the pictures make me hope for a little girl, but we’d love to have 2 boys to be able to grow up together. november seems far away, but I’m sure it’ll come rather quickly. michelle’s almost through the first trimester, and she’s been feeling better lately. she even busted out the old sewing machine last nite.
many thanks to Josiah and crew for the improvements to the chattablogs site. initially I wasnt too keen on some of the changes (being generally afraid of change). the new logo is cool, and I especially like the fact that on the list you can click on the entry or the blog main page. very nice. I’m still not sure about the pink, but I’ll get over it. it’s forced me to make the individual entry pages a little nicer too. hooray for coptix. best cheap hosting in town.
