I Won! I Won! I Won!

This is my first weekend off since I started my new job and I must say that it feels the same like every other weekend. And here I was expecting some fireworks and a marching band to appear right outside my window the moment I woke up ... LOL!

But for someone who lives for weekends, I've no complains at all. The only complain I have is I wish weekends were like fours days instead of two. Maybe if I became supreme ruler of the world, that might just happen and if you guys will throw all your support behind me and nominate me as the supreme ruler of the world, I promise I'll make it a four day weekend, maybe even five days ... hahaha ...

Anyways, my first week of work was pretty okay. There were moments of sheer adrenalin rushes to get some deadlines completed followed by sheer moments of stark raving boredom! LOL! So far, no complains about the new job except for the sinfully huge amounts of coffee I've been consuming all week. I'm probably going to have coffee beans sprouting out of my ears soon.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I actually won something online! I was totally stunned and extremely ecstatic at the same time cos I've never won anything online in my entire life and it's not some cheap thing, mind you. About a month or so ago, I was searching for an image online using my favourite image site called Inmagine which I'm also a registered member since my work scope requires buying images online for certain projects at work.


While sifting through the numerous images I saw an icon about Wacom Bamboo Tablet with the words congratulations on it and being inquisitive (and I knew it wasn't a spam link as the site is reputable) I clicked on it and was shocked to see that I actually won a Wacom Bamboo Tablet! Whoa, I was ecstatic, joyous, exhilarated even. I've never won anything online and here was a message saying I actually won something.

I was skeptical at first even though I was given my refence number for my win and was informed that the tablet would come in 6-8 weeks time. Even after seeing my name in the list of winners for the day (oh, they have daily winners, mind you) I still wasn't satisfied that it was for real. So I called up Inmagine directly since they have dedicated servicing people servicing my ex-company and ask them if I had won for real and they said, yup, it's for real!


I was jumping for joy! My first online win and it wasn't even difficult. Just a click of a button and presto, I now have a nice Wacom Bamboo Tablet on the way to meet me. I hope it comes before Christmas so I can put it under the Christmas tree :D

Oh, just in case any of you don't know what a Wacom Bamboo Tablet is (I'm sure you all do) it's one of those things that replaces the mouse with a pen like device so you can draw works of art on the computer with it instead of a mouse. Not that it'll come in handy for me cos I'm totally hopeless at drawing. So don't expect to see any Picasso like works of art from me ... hahaha ...
