not recommended

A year ago I was duped into joining a DVD club. You might ask me how I was duped? Well, the long of it is I was surfing the web and came across an opportunity to win seasons 1 through whatever it was at the time of my favorite TV show 24. All I had to do was answer a few surveys - there was no purchase required of anything - supposedly! Well, after many, many pages of questions and polite refusals of products I was directed to this DVD club site and somehow got myself tangled up into a year contract! It has been a very frustrating experience to say the least! DVD clubs are not worth it!! If you are considering joining one - DON'T!! Just go to Wal-Mart, Target, wherever and purchase the DVD's much cheaper and you're not obligated to anyone to buy any more!
OH, I forgot to mention that I never got to the point where I received 24 for free! The surveys were never ending and I finally gave up! Sometimes this Internet thing can be very costly in time and money (but I don't think I could live without it)!

So these five "Free flat-screen TV" offers I've signed up for aren't going to work???


Seriously, sorry for you on that twisted contract. That is hugely aggravating!

Yeah, those marketing people are really cruel.

I've been considering starting a blog page, but I just don't have the time or ideas of where to get the pictures. Where do you get them?! I enjoy reading your thoughts!!

Well, some of the pics are my personal ones. The other ones I just download from microsoft word clip art collections. There are websites that offer pics supposedly for free, but I've not been able to figure out how to use those, so I gave up. Thanks for reading!
