Birthday

I can’t believe time has gone by fast. It will be my birthday again tomorrow. I will be turning 32. Wow! I’m getting old.

I will be going for Mexican food for dinner with my mom, aunt and cousin. Next week we will go see Divergent as part of my birthday. I’ve been wanting to see this but it doesn’t come out until the day after my birthday so we will go see it Monday night since my mom works during the weekend (she works in retail at the mall).

So excited! My mom is going to take me to get prescription sunglasses for my birthday. I’ve been wanting them because I can’t see without glasses so I’ve never worn non-prescription sunglasses. I’ve always used those clip-on ones but they don’t really look good but better than not wearing glasses. I’ve seen online the type where you buy the prescription eyeglasses and they put these magnetic things on them and then you can buy the magnetic glasses for sun, driving and watching 3D movies and these attach to the eyeglasses by magnet. They look like you are wearing sunglasses. You can’t tell that you have clip-ons over your eyeglasses.

I’ve also seen the kind where they cut the clip-on to match exactly the shape of your eyeglasses and they add the clips at the two nose bridge areas and when you attach to your eyeglasses you can’t tell that your wearing clip-on sunglasses and these can bend and still not break.

When I get my prescription sunglasses I will post a picture.

It is already 2:06 AM so I will say goodbye and log off now. I should be asleep already. I am up late because I was working on some fanlisting stuff…fixing paginations, creating fanlistings and fixing members list pages on every fanlisting I own. I changed how I display the members list so I have to go in to the control panel and change the template for every listing and then I had to add the pagination to the css page of every listing. It is a lot of work but at least it looks so much more better. As I am doing this I am also changing layouts to some of my listings and adding more content to them.



James Patterson’s Private Series

The books from the Private series that I won from twitter came today. It does not include the new book, Private L.A. Nonetheless, I am so excited because I love James Patterson books. I have not read the books yet but can’t wait to start it. I need to finish the book, Enders, that I’m reading now and then finish 11th Hour which I started in November but never finished. Once these are done I will get started on these books and post about each book that I read starting with Enders.



James Patterson’s Private Series

I am a huge fan of James Patterson. I love reading his books especially the Women’s Murder Club series and Alex Cross series. He has a series called Private. I bought the first book in the series but have yet to read it. Today the sixth book in the series comes out. It is called Private L.A.

For the past week James Patterson had a contest on Twitter where you can enter to win the whole Private Series of books. There was only three winners who will win the whole set of books. What the contest required was retweeting five clues.

James Patterson’s first tweet was on February 3 and he said “RT all 5 clues for a chance to win the Private series 3 winners, US +CN only. I’ll tweet next clue’s location tomorrow.” There was a clue in this tweet that said “For the past nine months, the Harlow family had been living in Vietnam, where they had been making a film, Saigon Falls, an epic and tragic story of love and intrigue that unfolds in the last doomed years of the American war. #FindTheHarlows” you had to RT this tweet.

The next day, February 4, James Patterson tweeted “Today’s #PrivateLA clue is at @littlebrown. Rat all 5 clues this week to win the Private series. 3 winners, US+CN only. #FindtheHarlows” You go to @littlebrown twitter account and you find a tweet that says “Today we’re hosting @JP_Book’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt! RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! US+CN only.” There was a clue in this tweet that says “‘How do you know they haven’t just gone off somewhere on vacation?’ Mo-bot asked. ‘Because TMZ or one of the gossip sites would have found them,’ Terry Graves said. #FindTheHarlows” You RT this tweet.

The next day, February 5, James Patterson tweeted “Head to @GrandCentralPub for today’s #PrivateLA clue. RT all 5 by Friday for a chance to win the Private series. 3 winners, US+CN only.” You go to @GrandCentralPub twitter account and you find a tweet that says “We have a clue from @JP_Books’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt! RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! (US+CN only)” There was a clue in this tweet that was the same as before. You RT this tweet.

The next day, February 6, James Patterson tweeted “For today’s #PrivateLA clue, go to @HachetteBooks. Only one more clue left, RT all 5 to win a set of Private books. 3 winners, US+CN only” You go to @HachetteBooks twitter account and you find a tweet that says “Today we’re hosting @JP_Books’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt. RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! US+CN only” There was no clue in this tweet. You RT this tweet.

The last day, February 7, James Patterson tweeted “Final #PrivateLA clue. If you’ve retweeted all fives clues you could win 1 of 3 sets of Private books. US+CN only. There was a clue in this tweet that says “There is someone who claims to have seen Jennifer and Thom in Mexico the day before yesterday, very, very drunk. #FindTheHarlows” you RT this tweet.

Anyways, since I love James Patterson’s books I retweeted all five of these tweets. Then today I get a tweet from James Patterson that says “Congratulations, you’ve won the Private series. Please DM your mailing address.” Since he wanted me to direct message him my address he had to follow me on twitter. I am so excited because he is following me on twitter and because I won the book series. This is only the third time I have won. I won the book ‘Twas the Jordan Knight Before Christmas’ from Jordan Knight. I’ve also won a Webkinz plush pet with code from Webkinz through a twitter contest. I’ve entered contests to win Secret Life of the American Teenager season 1 dvd, iPad 2 with Secret Life of the American Teenager season 1 episodes on it, iPod shuffle, a chance to be one of four girls serenaded onstage by 98 Degrees at the Package Tour concert in Chicago, iPad Air, iPhone 5C, 98 Degrees Package Tour merchandise, Sing-Off tour tickets, a set of Big Time Rush merchandise, airfare plus cabin to New Kids on the Block cruise, tickets from radio station to an NSYNC concert and name plate of Nick Lachey from dressing room door from when he was on one of the talk shows on TV but I never won. I played bingo when I was little at school’s gym but didn’t win anything. I was never lucky until now.

I just hope this book set will include the last Private book, Private L.A. that came out today.
