Help me help you.

Well, since Dawn is begging, I guess I will too.

Gary at View From the Wing, who knows everything there is to know about deals, free stuff and more free stuff, got a free flat screen tv and a free computer through those offers that I used to think were nonsense. And, well, I want free stuff too.

So, here’s the deal: You got to a site and sign up. Then, you’re presented with all these ‘optional’ surveys. Click ‘no’ to each because they don’t count toward you completing your qualifying offer. Then, after all your ‘no’ clicking, you are presented with a list of offers, such as applying for a credit card or signing up for blockbuster for free for two weeks. Choose and complete an offer. Then, you need to get other people to sign up for an offer (how many others depends on the product, the flat screen is 8 more people, the PC is 10 more).

It’s really simple, just sounds complicated.

I’ll happily link the referral number of those people that help me do this after I have the needed amount of referrals.

Feel free to ask questions in the comment section.

So, here are my referral links:









Bring on Rudy?

I’m heading over to the New Criterion’s happy hour tonight (all the way across the street from my place) and I hear that Oklahama blogger Michael Bates, who many of us met during the convention, will be in attendance.

You should come.

Quote of the Day

‘Meanwhile, the national and state Democratic Parties continue to be committed to the artful straddle, lending subtle encouragement to the crazies while trying not to look pathetic in light of a national majority for George Bush.’

-Holman W. Jenkins Jr. on the campaign to recount Ohio.

How self indulgent are you?

What percentage of bloggers use their blog as their homepage on their browser? I bet nearly all do, right?

Funny girl.

So, Dawn Summers calls me up last week and says ‘ok, from now on write down everything I say and we’ll take the funniest five minutes and I’ll be a stand-up comic.’ Apparently, she had just seen some performances and felt she can do better. Looks like she took the ‘write down everything I say’ upon herself because here’s her first attempt.

In an effort to make ‘Apple Martin’ feel better about herself…..

Julia Roberts has named her twins Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus Walter Moder. Phinnaeus and Hazel. Great. But, whatever, who am I to talk. I want to name my future sons Sebastian and D’Artagnan.

Cracking up

I’m honestly surprised that more isn’t being said in the blogosphere about Maureen Dowd’s pretty shocking piece about her family. I don’t know what to make of it. I feel like she’s been in public therapy for a few years now and this is just an extension of that. And though I’m sure I’m taking it in an entirely different way than she intended, I have to agree with Dawn Summers: ‘This goes a long way to explaining some of the crackiness in her columns.’.

‘Blogging will be light as I’ve been arrested’

A girl charged in her mother’s murder had been keeping a blog called ‘My Crappy Life – The Inside Look of an Insane Life’.

The story is here.

Her blog is here.

How long before blogging is deemed the cause? I think if we’re going to point fingers, let’s just limit it to blaming Livejournal, I don’t get their whole thing anyway.
