Whatcha Watchin?

UGH! I am getting sick. I knew it would happen. Every time my body goes through major stress it is followed by a bout with something. Today I woke up with a really sore throat and a cough that sounds like a barking seal. Great, we promised the kids we would go skiing tomorrow—-which as you all know means me sitting in the lodge watching movies, doing some posting and doing the VERY important job of holding a table for lunch.

Don’t feel too sorry for me though. I have some very cool movies to entertain me tomorrow. I am not ashamed to admit they are all lighthearted, silly and yes, maybe a little young for me but a little fun is the perfect RX for me right now (oh, make sure you read to the bottom, there may be a reward in it for you!)

THE SIMPSONS: SEASON 20

I love the Simpsons. I seriously do. There is something so comforting about the fact that Bart never grows up and their family never changes. 20 Years??? Seriously??? I remember when this was ground breaking stuff. This DVD (also available in Blu-Ray) covers 21 episodes from 2008-2009. Let’s see…that is about 10 1/2 hours of laughs for me!

10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU: VOLUME ONE

Based on the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. I just recently reviewed the movie was Heath Ledger so I am looking forward to seeing how the TV series shapes up. Teenage drama at its best? I am a closet fan of Secret Life of the American Teenager so I am betting this is going to be one I like as well.

MAKE IT OR BREAK IT: VOLUME ONE (EXTENDED EDITION)

Story line direct from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment:

How far will they go to achieve their ultimate dream? Experience the rivalry and romance of four teenage girls on their path to Olympic gold in the original ABC Family series that has fans and critics cheering all across the nation. “You’ll flip for…Make It Or Break It,” raves David Hinkley of the New York Daily News.

Who will rank #1 at Nationals and what will it take to get there? Viewers will flip for this engaging series chronicling the triumphs and heartbreaks as close friends balance their lives as high school students with the intense world of competitive gymnastics. Fans can relive the series that raises the bar on family drama, complete with a never-before-seen extended episode, and go behind the scenes to discover what it takes to perform such amazing stunts—only on DVD!

I HAVE FREE REDBOX CODES FOR YOU

That would not be cool of me to talk about all the movies I have to watch without offering you a chance too, would it? Redbox has graciously given me some free rental codes for you to use. I recently discovered Redbox while driving to Las Vegas in October. I know, I must live in a hole to not use it before. Great way to rent movies for $.99 and you can return them anywhere which makes it the ultimate road trip tool for me :)

The codes are unique, one time codes so I will give one away to the first ten people to comment. I will email you the codes so make sure that you fill your email addy in the little box that only I see! Tell me what you want to rent and the code is yours :)

*oops forgot my ever, all important FTC disclaimer. Yes, I was compensated by the respective parties mentioned above and you know what is even more shocking??? Micheal Jordan got PAID to wear Nike shoes….shhhh, don’t tell the FTC!

Welcome To Twitter Junior High

Twitter is starting to remind me of Junior High School. In the last few months I have seen the craziest things occur on twitter and just shook my head and walked away thinking “i need to post about this one day”. Apparently the universe decided today was that day.

Yesterday I worked all day on a campaign that was near and dear to my heart. I worked well beyond what I was paid to do because I was passionate about the cause.

This morning I wake up from an email from a friend of mine telling me that people contacted her about issues with this campaign. She was in no way involved in the campaign so why the hell she was brought into this I have no idea but apparently people are now deeming her the Principal at Twitter Junior High.

So, as I explained to the Principal I will now explain to you. YES, last night I gave a prize away to twitter account owned by my co-host. I HAD NO IDEA SHE OWNED THAT ACCOUNT! Yes, she replied with a thank you because SHE WASN’T SURE WHAT TO DO IN THE HEAT OF THE PARTY. She called me right after the party with “Houston, we have a problem”. We decided we would reaward it today.End of story we thought.

But apparently a bunch of people ran to the Principal to tell on us.

Seriously??? Seriously???

No dm to me? No email to me? No tweet to me? WHY?

Do people honestly think I would stake a reputation I have had online for almost 10 years to give  her a branded tote and mug? Come on people. If you don’t know the blogger business yet let me clue you in….we have more branded products than we know what to do with it. They arrive everyday in our mailboxes. I am not devaluing the prize but my co-host needs this like she needs a hole in her head!

Lets clear some thing else up while I am at it. Yes, I own multiple twitter handles. All of my sites have their own handle. They are clearly branded as sites and can be checked against my portfolio. So does my co-host. I just didn’t know she had the one I awarded the prize to. She uses that one to give away awards she finds. Sort of nice of her, don’t ya think?

Yes, our clients know we have these accounts. It is no big secret. Yes, it inflates tweet counts, DUH! Your point is??? If you are donating to a charity and the client is aware extra accounts are used to spread main messaging, isn’t that a GOOD thing?

In December I held a food drive charity twitter party and was attacked because some people determined the food to not be as nutritious or organic as they would like. Seriously???? You are bagging on a FOOD DRIVE? Let the people receiving it decide if it is OK for them. My kids love that product.

In December, Twitter Junior High also saw the horrible attack on Military_Mom after she tweeted about her sons drowning. There has already been enough said on that tragic subject.

September was the attack on the my blogging friends who were invited to Nestle and then were literally crucified on twitter for it.

Twitters terms of service do not allow anyone under the age of 18 to play in the US so why are so many people acting like they are still in Junior High?

I hated Junior High and I have no intention of letting my part of twitter turn into it.

You have a problem with me? I am not hard to get a hold of. Tell me, not the teacher or the principal or talk behind my back.

Have a problem with someone else? Talk to them! Don’t start a huge campaign on twitter about it.

Can’t we all just get along?

Here is your chance to talk to me. Leave me a comment!
