Visions of Nintendo Wii and a 42" Flat Screen Danced in his Head

The following is a sponsored entry:

Since moving into the condo, Mark has had the idea of getting an oversized, wall mounted flat screen. Now, after spending part of our vacation in Idaho playing Bryan’s Wii, Mark not only wants a 42” flat screen, he also wants a Wii. Of course, the simple fact that we just went on a holiday so soon after purchasing a condo and an adorably expensive Boston terrier means that his visions of jumping around the condo squashing demented bunnies (for those of you who don’t know that is a crazy Wii game), will not soon turn into reality. Before you go feeling sorry for him, I did just get him the Xbox 360 for Christmas and the TV we have now is perfectly adequate.

Anyway, last night I think he came to the realization that if he wants to get his two dream items anytime in the next six months, he will have to get them from alternate means. Since he is an honest guy and completely non-violent, I guess that means he is going to have to try and win them through some sort of a sweepstakes!

Luckily, there is a new reverse auction site (where the lowest bid wins!?!) called and I just checked, they have both a Wii and a Panasonic 42" TV & Bose DVD Theater System among their many free gifts up for grabs. Mark works in a shop and does not have daily access to a computer like I do but that is not a problem. actually allows him to text in his entries and I have been assured that Bid4Prizes is very fun and user friendly. Oh and get this! Even if he does not win one of the prizes that he is bidding on, he still has the chance to win cash prizes. He will also collect points every time he bids, which he save up for...oh say...a designer purse for me! You know, to go with the 6 or so pairs of shoes I bought on this last vacation....
