I’ve won some meat trays and some cash on occasion. I think a decent meat tray isn’t bad.

I actually belong to a group on facebook that the woman is a SAHM with an older daughter in like 5-6th grade and a younger boy, special needs in like kindergarten part time. She finds links to every freaking contest there could ever be. You use her site to get the link, so you avoid the ads that have to be there, and there’s a pink button that says enter here. And it asks you if you wanna mark you entered for the day on a popup, cause some are entries everyday and you can see what you have and have not entered on dates.

I won quite a bit, also get lots bbn of samples, most recent was a Miller Lite 2xl men’s Green Bay Packer’s tshirt. It fits me and my daughter, lol. But I didn’t get ti pick the team, it went by the area you entered from and of course I’m in WI. But close enough that could got Da Bears, and I woulda been lynched by my husband. He thought it funny I got a packers shirt, cause I’m a Carolina Panthers fan.

I went to Reno when I was in my 20’s and I spent my gas money to get home on gambling, I was down to my last few dimes and I hit for $5000 bucks. 50000 dimes. I was pretty excited and kept thinking it $500 dollars, I was too excited to do math. lol. Then almost a year to the day I told my brother I wanted to go to Reno to get my $5000 dollars so we went and on our way from the car I found 2 dollars in the gutter. I changed them in for 2 silver dollars and played them in a machine and I’ll be damned if I didn’t win another $5000 bucks. I split it with my brother and we had one hell of a time playing and winning little bits all over the casino.

Hi @Pikasaur, I was wondering if you were still a Matrix fan? I might have been susceptible to its cynicism, it’s highly philosophical so that was my weakness for it.

I also like the convo in Little Miss Sunshine on the pier with Steve Carrell and the his nephew… I should probably try to put more focus there bc it’s probably healthier. I know nothing about Proust or Nietzche(sp) But I’m starting to think I may soak it all in!!

Matrix was great though.

I watched clips from it the other night… I like the (conundrum?) when the oracle says about the flowers: what’s really gonna bake your noodle is would you have broken them had I not said anything in the first place. Makes my head spin.

But ultimately I thought the romance aspect was a weaker part, but perhaps that gets more airtime in the sequels which I don’t really recall, probably like a lot of people.

I’ve supposedly “won” lots of things according to various telemarketers. I hung up on all of them. I’ve only won quarters and stuffed animals at Bingo.
