When I returned home from work on Friday, this was waiting on my doorstep for me.
You are probably thinking, big deal, she just bought herself a laptop computer. The thing is, I didn’t buy this computer, I won it.
On the fourth of July, I was cruising the fandango site, as Evan and I were pondering going to a movie after taking his parents to the airport, and saw a link to play hedgegames. This was an hp sponsered game to advertise the movie hedgegames. Almost as soon as I started playing, a message popped up saying that I might be an instant winner. I pretty much thought nothing of it, until I got a call two weeks later saying that I had won a computer.
My co-workers were convinced that it was some internet scam. Evan, ever the pessimist, thought it was for real, but that the computer they would send would be crap. They were all wrong as it is a real, very nice computer. It has a memory card reader, a dvd burner, and a thingamajig that lets it talk to my satelite tv box.
