Free iPod (not spam, i swear) [28 Mar 2006|09:11am]

Hi everyone. I know I don't post to this community very often, but this is pretty cool. I found this site, http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=28893614, where you can get a free iPod. All you have to do is register for one of the free available services, refer five other people, and you'll get a free ipod nano or ipod video.

Don't worry, I'm not some crazy spammer or part of any "congo line", but this is the real deal. I did some research, and I found this two articles: http://www.geek.com/news/geeknews/2004Aug/gee20040819026544.htm and http://www3.netmart.com/free-ipod.htm. Both of the articles say that this particular site has been around for a while, and actually is legit.

If you guys are interested, it's pretty easy. Just register on the site, then choose one of the offered free trials (I would personally suggest the RealArcade trial, because Real/RealPlayer is an authentic and reliable company/program. Not only is it free, but I immediately ended my trial after beginning it). After that, just get five other people to register and you should get an iPod.

Thanks for reading my post. Bye everyone.

Hi, all [26 Feb 2006|01:47pm]
[ mood | excited ]

Hello, I am Danielle.

I live in Victoria, BC and am getting married this May. It's fun to trade postcards--homemade or not. That's usually what I trade. But, I am tired of paying ridiculous American mail prices, and in the postcard community I'm in, there are maybe 10 of us from Canada.

Look forward to meeting you guys!

i'm interested in laughing, self-sufficient living, guitar, muuuusic, baking (having fun with edible art lately), chickens and animals of all descriptions, anthropology, evolutionary biology, astronomy, spirituality in many forms, love, friends, and other schtuff.

Name: Liz

Sex: Female

Location: Ferndale, WA (just over the border)

My favourite bands/singers are: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Indigo Girls... but I like almost everything, and am always up for trying new stuff.

My favourite movies are: The Sandlot, The Hours, Almost Famous, Dodgeball.

My favourite TV show is: any of the Law & Orders, Designing Women, Family Guy.

My favourite books/authors are: I devour books of all kinds! Favorites do include Barbara Kingsolver, Madeleine L'engle, Chaim Potok, Richard Powers.

My obsessions: Singing in the car with the windows down and the music up. Cheerwine, sweet tea, red wine, and homemade peach ice cream. Letters from my friends back in NC. Spanish, spoken and written and heard.

About my personality: I think a lot of times people think from the beginning that I'm quiet, but it's totally wrong. I'm funny, and high-energy but low-maintenance. I have to have rhythm - times with my friends have to be tempered by time alone to read or whatever, just to get re-energized.

About my family: Oldest of two kids, from NC.

Are you single?: Yes.

About my friends: All my best friends split up across the country when we graduated college. My bests are in NC, DC, TN... and I'm here in WA.

About my college/job: AmeriCorps, but I'm interested (after this) in working with recent Hispanic immigrants. I learned Spanish in the Dominican Republic so that's my favorite place to go... but we'll see what turns up.

Seeking: To make friends through correspondence, with any age, any country.

Prefer long, medium or short letters?: Who doesn't love long letters? But I'm up for any length - sometimes the best ones are short and sweet.

How many pen pals do you want?: Whoever's interested...

What would you like to trade?: Mixtapes, as soon as I figure out how I'll make some... I just moved out here from NC in a Honda, and only had room to bring my little CD player, not full stereo. Postcards. Anything hilarious. Anything interesting.

International or local penpals?: Both.

Random Fact: I NEVER paint my toenails. What a waste of energy.

Another Random Fact: In NC, I've always been "the girl without a Southern accent"... but I wonder what Washingtonians will think!?

Why I'd make a terrific pen-pal: I think people are interesting and I'm a deep thinker, a good writer. I like to write letters.

You can read a little bit more about me on my LJ user info. If you're interested, email me for my mailing address at lizsmith@alum.salem.edu.

[ mood | happy ]

I got mail from chicken_kisses! Thanks for the card! I actually got it the day before I left on holidays. I sent you a letter that I'd had written for a few days but I don't think I put enough postage on it. I'm sending you another one anyway today!

I just realised something.
I sent out two different pieces of mail today, and totally forgot to put a picture in one of them.
It's not that I have to or anything, but I had planned on it.
One of the letters I wrote on July 8th, and didn't send 'til today.
The other I wrote while waiting for the bus to work.
I won't tell you who I snet them too though.
When you get them will you post?

Alright.. so I decided to be awesome and try to steal an application from a rating community so I could fill it out and everyone would know about me.. but trying to find intelligent, original questions proved itself too taxing a task for me to undertake. So ima' wingit.

My name is Kaitlin C. Bonin. I live in Victoria, British Columbia.

The 'C' is in the middle there.. because I don't know how to pronounce my middle name. It's not like I'm ethnic or anything, (I'm so white it hurts sometimes..) it's just.. I was supposed to be a Zachary. So my mother, in a epiderral(sp?)-like stupor, made something up off the top of her head for my middle name.

Most people call me Kate or expletive deleted. I'm 17, born 11:59pm on December 3rd, 1987. I just graduated high school with a double dogwood diploma in English and French.

I'm in love.

I play guitar and have since I was 13 and I write my own songs with my friend Elyse. We have yet to make a tape, it should be fun. Sometimes I'm struck with super-powers and I make up sweet-ass-mofo riffs on my 100+ year old piano.

I'm obsessed with making things: I knit (I just finished a bikini top.. YES!), I've bound a few books, I painted my shoes, I have a home-made duct tape bag and tons of other stuff. Maybe I'll open up shop. Maybe not.

I listen to indie, lame 90's summerpop, classic rock and some harder stuff. I have yet to break into the music "scene" in my town, but I have tons of time to do so.

I work at McDonald's. The ordeal of just getting to work everyday is enough to fill up 4.67 pages. I think.

So.. comment here if you want me to write to you and vice vera, or check out my no longer friendsonly journal and comment there.. or something.

New Address [12 Jul 2005|03:00pm]

I still want penpals! Only, i have a new address! I decided "to hell with being a reporter, i'm going back to school!" So I packed up and came back to Saskatchewan two months early. My new email address is:

Tyna Rose
2104 Adelaide St. E
Saskatoon Sk.
S7J 3K3

I would love to write, or exchange post cards.. even small packages. Comment, or just drop something in the mail!

Quick bio - i'm a 23 year old English major who splits her time between Saskatchewan and Nunavut. Telling you more would really ruin the surprise, wouldn't it? ;)

[ mood | it's brrr in my room! ]

Well well...what to say...um, yeah, just joined! Gold star for me! Lol yeah, sorry...I'm not the best at intros...just go check out my info or my journal if you want to see what I'm like. Most of the latter is public, so you won't miss out on much. I'd like to have more of my fellow Canadians to talk to, just cuz...well, Americans are fine, but they just don't get the canuck thing, am I right? I think so. =P

There are strange things done 'neath the midnight sun [12 Jun 2005|10:39pm]

Hey! I'm a 23 year old student who splits her time between studying at the UofS in Saskatoon during the Fall/Winter and working as a reporter in Nunavut during the Spring/Summer. I travel a lot, write poetry and have a lot of random adventures with the people i encounter along the way. I'm an avid writer, but i'm not doing so good in the penpal department these days so i'm looking to branch out! I adore snail mail! There's nothing better than getting a letter, and finding a random movie stubs or a poem in the envelope as well. I'm all about surprises!

Interested? Reply here and let me know! Or, just post a letter.
