Its been one of those days.

I have just been in a funk.

I made a cake and forgot the set the timer, so it shriveled and burnt up.

I went grocery shopping and forgot some of my coupons at home.

It rained so we couldnt play outside.

It was all very important life altering events and you can certainly see why I spent my whole day as a gloomy gus.

Anywho, whenever people tell me they are sad or bummed or down, I offer up some totally unsolicited highly sought after advice.

I like to say, "The best way to make yourself feel better is to do something nice for someone else."


I am going to take my own advice.

I decided to give away this thing.


Pretty huh?

I dont know a whole lot about it other then its a video camera.

Here is the manufacturer info.

See it, shoot it, share it – capture life's unforgettable moments in
high-definition clarity and share them online with Creative's Vado HD Pocket Video Cam.
  The thin, lightweight Vado HD is small enough to fit
in a pocket, purse or the palm of your hand, and easily captures video
in 720p high-definition quality with just the touch of a button. The
Creative Vado HD is the only pocket video camera to feature high
quality HDMI connectivity and an included HDMI cable that provides
1080i output to an HDTV.

Um, yeah.  I have no idea what any of that means.  But it sounds good right?

So all ya gotta do is leave a comment letting me know how to reach you.

If ya wanna tweet it and have another comment and blah blah blah all that stuff… you know the drill.  I dont have followers per say so if you want to leave an extra comment because you have an aunt named Ethel, please feel free.  Lets just say… three comments max per person ok?

I am going to randomly select a winner tomorrow.

I cant WAIT to do it cause I really want to stop being a gloomy gus.

You may now go back to your regularly scheduled programming.


A winner has been chosen, thank you so much for playing!

Share with your friends!
