My email won GBP£850,000.00 AND some kind sir/madam from Africa who had a family member pass on is willing to share their US $280,000,000 dollar inheritance with me (I'm just one western union wire away from it). What a lucky day and just in time for Christmas shopping!

Seriously email scammers...lose my address, please.

"What can I get you to drink?" is usually one of the first questions you hear when you sit down to eat at a restaurant. My answer is often water. I don't choose water because I am too cheap to buy a coke or other beverage; instead it is simply because I want water. However, sometimes I think the server seems to be less excited when they hear the phrase, "May I have a water, please?"

Don't worry, I'm still ordering food and you will get your tip. It's just that I'd rather have the healthier alternative than a soda.

Around this time of year many people contemplate the things in their life that they appreciate. For this Thanksgiving holiday, I am thankful for my family. I love them. I especially love eating turkey and pumpkin pie with them.

On a different note, one thing that is too crazy for me and I might not be very thankful for this time of the year is Black Friday shopping. I don't understand why people need to wait in the cold weather at insane times in the morning or even all through the night to push each other and be rude to save a few dollars. I just don't get it.

I have a dilemma: when I was 13, I made a pact with my friend that we would not watch rated R movies any more. I remember the last film I saw in the theater with that rating was True Lies. Since then, there have been several movies I have wanted to see, but have held off remembering the deal I made. Now, I have gone to some film festivals where there were no present ratings on shows and then later found out they were given the "R" rating and I have socially watched a few with friends not knowing (and probably falling asleep through) the rating. But for the most part, I have kept my promise.

It has been years since I have seen or talked with that friend and I have no way of knowing if she has kept or even remembers the commitment we made to each other. For that reason, many have told me it's ok to watch such films and that I'm being silly in my reasoning for turning down opportunities to see them because there are so many good ones out there I am missing. But I'm ok with it because, even though my friend from when I was 13 won't know if I see a film or not, I will know and want to be able to keep my word. Integrity is powerful and I want others to know they can trust I will do as I say and believe.

Back to the dilemma...once again, there is a film showing that I am kinda obsessed with called 127 Hours. It's a fantastic true story and I've heard provides a pictorial perspective of the state of Utah that is absolutely phenomenal (WATCH THE TRAILER!!). However, the film is rated R. Ugh. Should I forget the pact that may be silly and makes decisions for myself now since I'm a "big girl" in society's eyes or should I try to stay true to my "little girl" promise I made so many years ago.

There isn't an age limit to jumping in a pile of fall leaves after raking them up, is there?!

Thanksgiving is approaching so what do we do for fun around here?
We go bowling.
With turkeys.
And soda bottles.

Dear Radio DJ,
Since when did Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker become country singers?! Please get them off my radio stations. Yeehaw.
Thank you

I bought some leggings just before I went to Czech and I noticed something wasn't right after washing them. When I came back to the states I tried to return them to the store, but they told me the brand had changed their logo and the specific leggings I bought weren't in the computer system anymore. I really just wanted to exchange them for another pair and didn't care what the logo on the tag looked like since they obviously were defective. The store employee told me no.

UMMM...is it just me that sees something wrong with these?!

Even when everything is fading to brown for winter and construction orange can be seen for miles on most roads, my Utah is still gorgeous!

#1 Seriously, I saw a commercial at the gym that directed me to go to www.getfreshwithafriend.com. Yeah...get fresh with a friend dot com. The company is Cottonelle and they want not only YOU to be able to enjoy Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes, but also your friend. Interesting.

They even have this video with the description:
While washing the family mini-van, Debbie gets fresh with her friend Sam, and things take a hilarious turn.

#2 There was a coupon in the mail today for www.poopposse.com. Yep, if you need your yard de-pooped, then this is place to go. Because "You want to spend time playing with your dog, not cleaning up after him." Gross.

I just got a note from a friend about a 'daily deals / groupon ish' type site he is running in southern utah (buy $50 worth of xyz for $20...). He's asking me to help announce that it is launching this month- and he is giving away an Apple iPad to a random person who registers by Nov 11.

If you could post a link or something it would help him out...or, even better, sign up to win and get steals for yourself.
