Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens Tampa is really in for a treat. 300+ bloggers from IZEAFest are going to be descending upon the place on October 1st. Are you going to IZEAFest? No? Well you certainly should be because you get to go to not one but Two Awesome Theme Parks for the price of your IZEAFest ticket! Check out this announcement from Ashley at IZEA. BTW he’s the man!

But that announcement is one that is going to make tomorrow’s announcement from me all that much great! Yes, tomorrow’s announcement is going to be awesome!

No, I haven’t gone crazy spending some stimulus package. Am I the only one sick of seeing those scam ads on Facebook? No, I watched OfficeDepot as the price fell on the Wacom Bamboo Tablet and the 4 port USB hub. The Samsung camera was a giveaway from a generous sponsor at IZEAFest 2008. And generous Swag is reason #9 for going to IZEAFest 2009. The 1 TB FreeAgent XTreme external hard drive from Seagate. I won that from a contest on The Dirty Shirt. Today I finally put these items to use.

I hooked up the hard drive and set it to backup the video and photo folders of our other external hard drive. I also made sure that that particular drive was up to date with my travel external hard drive. And if that is not anal enough I have another external hard drive of just Eva photos. The 1 TB FreeAgent XTreme will go into our fireproof lockbox. I will also find another safe place for the Eva hard drive and do my backups once each month. So now I have to set up a reminder message to myself for once a month backups.

Speaking of getting things done, today I finally picked up my glasses, the ones that were $200 more than the Zenni Optical ones that I am wearing right now. The company called me wondering why I hadn’t picked up the glasses in 4 months. Oops.

So I grabbed them, then stopped over at my Gym to cancel my membership. Gyms are such scams. I know that I paid 1st and last months fees but they said I have to bring my original paperwork back to confirm that. Really, they didn’t have that on file somewhere? I find that hard to beleive so tomorrow I bring them my paperwork.

Oh and I also got my car inspected. My plan to have it inspected at least one day into the new month after the last one expired is working. I figure if I do it for 12 months I get one year free. That is probably not what is happening but I like to think it is.

And I love On Demand by Comcast because they had Wolverine and the X-Men was on Nickelodeon for free. I also found Marvel on Twitter. I love that they are using Twitter. I’m going to find some of the other media sources that I love as well. Hey great, news IDW publishing is on twitter too! They are the people who do the Angel, Transformers and G.I. Joe comic books.
