alien word verification

Living Bridget left a comment yesterday...she complained about when you want to leave a blogger a comment...some ask for a word verification....stupid random letters that make no sense at all...really who thought that would be a good idea...personally bridget and i think it sucks...cause more often than not we type in the wrong letters...thank goodness...i thought i was alone... Bridget...yeah baby...i suffer from the same alien affliction...i really do try hard...but i think i may dyslexic or something...i usually have to try at least twice before i pass...it shouldn't be that difficult right...


other joyous news is that i've won something...how cool is that!...i've never won anything in my life before...a few weeks back they had some sort of a promotion at our local supermarket... you could win some really nice stuff and i always .... pick the wrong box...so needless to say i was totally stoked when i was notified that i've won something...not from the supermarket... something even better than that~


in june i wrote a letter to a running magazine, and guess what, it got published, not only did i win the letter of the month…it’s kind of sad though that I would enjoy being the monthly winner so much right…I know, I don’t know what’s up with that…so…I also get a prize... thank goodness i didn't have to pick a box for this one...isn’t that exciting…I won this really cool running watch…it’s a timex gents ironman 30 lap flix…ha!... i will probably never use any of the features but I’ll be wearing it everywhere I go...the only problem is that my letter got published in june...and is november already...and no watch to show off yet...i emailed a guy at the magazine ...haha...another mike...and he's been following it up for months now...and yesterday i got an email to say that they have confirmed my winning-status...pffttt...and my watch will be waiting at the post office soon...yeah...oh yeah...i love it...jealous? you should be, i won a watch... ;-)

Uh, sweetass. You can switch off the word verivication in your settings. Come on. Do it. Make Bridget's day.

Congrats on the watch. Now you can check how long it will take to catch Mike when he runs away again.

glug: i did it! word verification hopefully off ...poor Mike, i'm not going to run after him! i'll time him to see how long it takes for him to catch me! ;-)

SheBee said...

I was going to say that, but Glug beat me.

Yay for the watch win!

i won R140 bucks at the casino on Sunday. Must be summing in the air.

I always put my name in those boxes at the malls and supermarkets and try to win cars or watches, or anything... I never win, and I hate you.

Mr R Rabbit said...

Well done on your prize. :)

Unfortunately with word verification I find it easier to keep it on than delete the automated spam comments that pop up otherwise, which is why it was introduced in the first place. I remember one of my old blogs ended up with fifty to sixty spam comments in the space of a day.

Sweetass RSA said...

sheebee: now all you others must also deactivate your word verification...that'll be a perfect world...

curious: i love you too babe!

SheBee said...

i HAVE A WORD VERIFICATION?

Didn't know that. I always bitch in my head about everyone else's...

Living Bridget said...

Jeeeesssuss Chhhirsssst!! You aged 10 years off me when I saw my name at the beginning of the blog. I've h ad a terrible experience with being sworn at online recently! Phweee!!! Thanks for removing it! A little less alien.

angel said...

woohoo!
congratulations sweetass!!
i had a couple of letters published in fhm- and i won a bottle of aftershave once, snicker!

angel said...

at least you got something you can use!!!

MsMozi said...

Congrats on the watch! I tend to only win items that I’d pay people not to give to me. Like the elephant skin wallet from Zimbabwe I won at a work function... Yuk.

I am glad you got rid of the word verification...
I am so glad you won something... I dont think I ever won anything but then again I never enter anything.
Hey the word verification thingy is still there

Sweetass RSA said...

rabbit: i put it back on, obvious spam coming through! sorry bridget!

shebee: not everybody has it, you actually have to activate it yourself... but have mercy...spam really sucks!

bridget: you're safe here babe, i won't bite ok!?

angel: aftershave...!

mozi: yuk indeed...euuwwwwwwwwh

nosj: you should enter girl, really, you'll be surprised how easy it is to win a elephant skin wallet and aftershave...lol!
