In focus

Last night I went to my first focus group. It was for Carolina Pad, the same company that sponsored my Hot Chocolate giveaway. We were there for 2 hours discussing notebook design and functionality. For our time we each received $30 and a cute gift set of products. It was fun and who doesn’t love swag?! You know I love office supplies so I can certainly chat about them. I hope to do some more of these soon!

Good golly, Miss Mally

Stars in the making

Last February I recorded a little video of CSP playing with our pug puppy Zoe. It’s really cute so I uploaded to America’s Funniest Home Videos in July. Well I received an email from AFV at the beginning of October that they want it on the show. So we filled out a stack of release forms and sent them in. I just heard that our video will be on America’s Funniest Home Videos in January! Most likely the 17th but I’m to check back with them in early January to confirm.
I’d show you the video but AFV has you take the video off the web until after the show.
CSP, in his pajamas, playing with Zoe, on national Television! So excited!!!

I know I’m a walking commercial, but this is seriously good stuff and sharing is caring

If you own a BlackBerry or iPhone you need to get this app. I downloaded it the other day and it has already earned a spot on my first page of apps. What it does is lets you message between other iPhone or bberry users. Kind of like texting and/or instant messaging. But free. And you don’t need to set up a buddy list or log in. The app can tell if your friend has the app (as long as you have their phone number in your contact list/address book). Then pick the person you want to message and you’re good to go. It does push notices and landscape typing. Mainly it saves you $$ on texting! Love it!
I got I the other day and it was free but now it’s 99 cents in the App Store. It will be well worth your dollar. If you get it let me know and we’ll chat!

Comped Cinema

Because we are loyal customers, Directv has given us 3 free months of Showtime. We’ve been watching some movies lately. Now I shall tell you about them.

•Bound – love Jennifer Tilly. Gina Gershon is bad ass.
•Lara Croft, Tomb Raider- love Angelina Jolie. It was weird watching Angelina speak with a British accent while Daniel Craig spoke like an American. Fun movie.
•Margot at the Wedding- You’d think with the cast of Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jack Black that this movie wouldn’t be such a waste of 90 minutes. You’d think that, but you’d be wrong. Wrong and annoyed that such a stupid, boring movie could be made.
•Charlie Bartlett- Hope Davis and Robert Downey Jr are fabulous in this. Fell in love with the kid who plays Charlie Bartlett. Delightful movie.
•Good Luck Chuck – Jessica Alba is cute as can be. And i love penguins. That’s the end of the good things I can say about this movie. This movie confirms my desire to never see or hear Dane Cook speak again.

That’s it so far. There Will be Blood is supposed to record soon. I drink your milkshake!

Out of touch

Dear Internets & Bloggy friends,
Our computer died so now the only access I have to email & the world wide web is my iPhone. And while I adore my iPhone, it is small. Too small for blog reading. I mean, it can be done but it is robbing my eye sight & is painfully slow to load. Also, it seems that not all of my emails are coming through to my phone. So if you don’t hear from me blame Steve Jobs at Apple. Once we can replace the computer (in a month or so. A Month or so of tortuous, no interwebs he’ll on Earth) then I will be able to catch back up on my blog reading & quality blog posting.
Till then you can send me messages via WhatsApp chat if you’re on an iPhone or you can take your chances with email. Plus there’s Facebook & Twitter.
