Confessional Friday

I confess that I tweeted my Blockbuster beef  to Blockbuster on twitter.  It was really hard to fit my frustration into 140 characters or less but I included a tiny url to my blog post for good measure.  Since their stupid contact us feature on their website wasn't working they left me no choice.  I still have not received Last House on the Left BUT they actually did reply and were kind enough to give me a one month credit.  That's something at least.  I was also randomly selected to do a survey while I was on the site and I complained my little heart out.  If movie availability does not improve we'll make a decision about what to do next.

I confess that I'm starving!  I was crazy enough to do a juice fast and I'm pretty much over it now and can't wait to finally eat again.  I'll update you on how that went next week.

I confess that about a month ago my husband commented that my face was always in my phone and he started declaring cell phone free hours in the evening. I realized that he was right. I was becoming overly engrossed in my phone mainly due to a temporary social media obsession with Twitter and Instagram and I've made a big effort to cut back.  He and our time together is way more important then finding out what my blogger buddies ate for dinner and what they wore while doing it.  Not that I don't love knowing all that random stuff but ya know, it's all about priorities.

I confess that all this time I had no idea that google maps could talk.  A few weeks ago I was on my way to a casting and decided to use it as back up to my GPS and my mapquest directions.  I was so surprised to hear that lady telling me where to go that it startled me for a second.  It's a lot easier then trying to stare at the tiny print on the phone and avoid a wreck.  Anyone else so paranoid that they use 3 different map sources to get from point A to point B?  More about the model casting coming later.

Linking up with Leslie @A Blonde Ambition 
I confess that I experienced a mix of awe and envy when I saw Ashley Green's underwear clad butt in Apparition.  There was an obligatory shower scene that showcased the water cascading down her skin and  her lotioning up afterwards.  Then there was a scene with her walking through the house in fear wearing nothing but a black lingerie top and panties that showcased her totally perky not a sag in sight butt.  I wonder how many squats I would have to do to achieve that kind of perfection.

I confess that sometimes I feel like I'm not paying bills.  I mean, I know that I'm going to work for a reason and most of my income disappears from my checking account on a monthly basis but it's all done so automatically without me doing anything; you know aside from the whole slaving away for 40 hours a week.  Every now and then I just feel like it's been a while since I paid a bill and that I'm supposed to be paying something but in reality it's already been done. 

I confess that I am a sweepstakes entering junkie.  Whenever HGTV gives away a dream home I enter every single day!!  I never win but for some reason I can't stop trying.  The bloggy world has blown up with giveaways which has made my sweepstakes loving heart happy.  Sometimes I don't even know what the prize is and I'm already entering away.  Half the time I know I have almost no chance in hell of winning if I only get a few of the entries but I do it anyways.  It's paid off!  I've actually won 3!  Never mind how many I had to enter to win those.  Now I just need to win the Dream Home.

Twitter // Facebook // Instagram

I love entering giveaways as well. Ellen Degeneres has daily giveaways on her site, so I look into that EVERY weekday. DSW has "Free Shoesday" on facebook on Tuesdays and "Free Shoes Friday" on Twitter on Friday. I've won several times!! And as for blog giveaways, depending on the size of the readership, I may or may not enter, but I love those too! :-)

You've won 3 giveaways! I remember back when you hadn't won one yet! And I know what you mean on the bills, our are all automatically taken out of our account too so I'm constantly asking Garrett if they were all paid. I can't wait to read about the juicing diet you did!

You are lucky your husband asked for more "us" time. I have tried to do this with my husband and well....lets just say it doesn't work out. Either he gets side tracked or falls asleep or is out doing something with someone else.
And yes...there are others who do the 3 maps thing. My daughter just drove from Illinois to Oklahoma to see her husband. She had mapquest, gps and paper maps. Got there and back just fine.

I've had to catch myself and put my phone down a couple of times...need to be more in the moment.

The Instagram / Twitter thing wears off, I promise. I'm not obsessed with either any more! Wondering if I can declare evenings computer-free...I fear my husband will lose his mind though.

HGTV has giveaways? How do I not know that? I'd love to win a place in would solve 100 of my problems.

I still love Instagram, but I don't get Twitter. I still have an account, I'm just a minimalist I guess. ;)

I didn't know blockbuster still existed,, I thought they had all closed down! I hate when a company has crappy customer service.

I'd probably be in the same boat as you when it comes to juice fasts! I'd be starving and ready to ear after the first day!

That is awesome that they got back to you! Love Twitter for that!!
