Guess what!
Yesterday, the day before, and several hours of the day before that, I listened to 95SX, the local pop Top 40 station, for almost the entire day. I walked around with either the radio in the house on (banning all tv for the day!), or with my Zune plugged into one ear so I could hear every song they played. Why, you ask, would I do such a silly thing? Well, I answer, b/c they were having a contest in which they play a certain song each day, and when it comes on, you text them. If you are the 95th texter, then you win.

Yesterday was the last day of the contest, and it was getting down to the wire. I suffered through many a song, including Britney Spears and Avrile Lavigne, all for the sake of winning. I knew that they would play it sometime in the afternoon hours, so I would not be taken from my radio. I even missed naptime, which I was not so happy about. Needless to say, they finally announced at 4 pm that the song would be played before 5, so I at least had a time frame to look forward to. Naturally, they played the song at 5:00 on the dot! Whatever, the time to text had begun!

I texted to their number with the word "IPhone" at least a million times, or so it felt. Thankfully, my phone has that cute little keyboard, so I could type relatively easily, but it still took forever on each one. I just knew, though, that I would be texters 94 and 96. I never win anything...Oh, and on a side note, I prayed to God to help me win, knowing that it's not really right to ask God for stuff like that, but telling Him that, well, I just really want to win something!...

I waited and waited to hear the phone ring, and nothing came...until, about fifteen minutes later, it rang! I WON, I WON! I sounded pretty darn good on the radio, too. I'm thinking maybe a career in radio? Hmmm...

Anyway, wanna know what I won? I won an IPhone and an IPod Nano. Isn't that cool!? I'm so excited! I have zero need for an IPhone at all, but yet, I want one so bad. I looked it up online last night, and I'm pretty sure I'll need to get a "professional" career just so I won't look like a weirdo walking around with it. Something tells me that not too many stay-at-home moms are carrying around such high-tech pieces of equipment! It also looks like it might eliminate the need for my Zune, so perhaps I can make a few bucks selling that (on craigslist, of course!). Trey even wins, b/c he's going to get either the Nano (depends on how much I love it, even though the IPhone has an IPod built in), or my Zune. Looks like my Christmas shopping for him is done!

Isn't that so cool! I can't wait till I get them at the end of the week! Sadly, I don't have AT&T, which, from what I understand, is the only service I can use for it. However, I've been wanting to ditch Alltel for a while now, so this might just be my moment.

Anyway, I've gone on long enough. I hope you're having a great day, and I'll see you later!
