The stipulations to Eastern Motors Car give away



“Redskins Super Ride Sweepstakes
Brought to you by Easterns Automotive Group and Vehix” Sweepstakes

If, during any one of the Designated Games* all four of the following players: Jason Campbell, Clinton Portis, Antwaan Randle El, and Chris Cooley each individually score either a rushing or receiving touchdown or the return of a kick (Jason Campbell must catch a pass and score a touchdown for it to count as a receiving touchdown for him) (collectively, “Qualifying Touchdowns”), Easterns will randomly pick one registered name as the winner. The winner will then get to choose one of the players’ cars from the list below (“Grand Prize”):

Jason Campbell’s S 550 Mercedes Benz
Chris Cooley’s CL 550 Mercedes Benz
Clinton Portis’ Maserati GranTurismo
Antwaan Randle El’s Bentley GT

To count as a successful touchdown, the touchdown must be recorded as an official NFL statistic. A touchdown nullified by a penalty will be ineligible and will not be considered for the purposes of this sweepstakes."

This is one of those cases where it is important to remember that possessive pronouns never take apostrophes, even though possessive nouns do (see it’s/its). “Who’s” always and forever means only “who is,” as in “Who’s that guy with the droopy mustache?” or “who has,” as in “Who’s been eating my porridge?” “Whose” is the possessive form of “who” and is used as follows: “Whose dirty socks are these on the breakfast table?

alternative medicine


..i stink right now so i'll make this quick

Monday, I went out to dinner with some GU folks. At some point we talked about Acupuncture, Chiropractors, and other Alternative medicine, yadda. This was the second time in a week that the conversation was brought up. I'm not one for pills or meds, or drs period. But I def don't subscribe to the "A.M" crowd, like my mother, sister and from what i've learned Amanda too.

TUESDAY, i wake up and can't move my flipping neck....the pain extends from the neck to my right shoulder. VERY VERY BAD I've always had lower back pains (and by "always" i mean, post Americorps), and then two weeks ago i felt a 'pop' in the middle of my back. So in short there is something VERY WRONG.

So i call my mom, my mom calls her brother, my uncle, my uncle calls me. I go "yea, i'll take a pill and go to PT" he was like "No No, you need to go to the Chiropractor so you can figure this out,"... me- "uhhh those aren't real Doctors." He goes "Lauren, i felt the same way, but after he did what he did, i could have married that man"----and my Uncle is NOT gay friendly.
SO Uncles orders, i'm going to get my back realigned.

And maybe i'll be will take a lot more for me to do Acupuncture.
Maybe i'll get some medicinal herbs....

Side Note, has anyone heard the CNN story about some husband who named is Baby Sarah-McCain Palin...WITHOUT TELLING HIS INDUCED WIFE. Sts sent me a text this morning to tell me, i haven't read it yet, but i will post the link when i find it.

you need to pay attention (and read)

You know what


Never mind

Also, last night I had a table of five guys come in. They were from out of town. One guy, Greg, and I got into a deep conversation after he asked “Lauren, McCain or Obama?”
“No comment!”
He pries “come on, McCain or Obama,”
So I tell him the timeline-“ I was undecided until last month, it was Tuesday during the DNC. Obama named Biden as his running mate-It made me raise my eyebrows, then wedensday Obama gave his speech, Thursday AM, McCain picked Palin, and I was done”
The table laughs. Then a long conversation about Palin’s incompetence.
Which brings me to a point–If everyone knows what an idiot, and incompetent leader she is, then why is she a potential vice president? Her foreign policy is “I’m neighbors with Russia,” when asked “what foreign newsfeeds do you read?” she CANT answer the QUESTION. Seriously, is this some kind of joke!? If anything, I can’t vote for McCain, because McCain lacks common sense. Who, with basic education, can possibly believe that Palin is the most qualified (woman if must) in the GOP to co-lead this country? McCain. Who, with basic education, thinks it is a good idea to pick fights with several countries despite the fact that his/her country is in a depression, whos military is spread thin, whos country is littered with starving, beating children (ie kids in the freezer), unemployed professionals, forecloser victims and Hurricane “refugees?” McCain. Is there a hidden camera somewhere? Is this really happening?
I’m infuriated, and I’ve never been like this about this upcoming election, I’ve stayed neutral and silent. NOT ANYMORE. This is worse then Bush/Gore-at least the nation did not know what an incompetent fool Bush was/is. We can see, thru his actions, what an incompetent candidate McCain is.
Seriously, Alberta is doing a mad hiring of U.S. citizens...but damn it is cold up there.
Also, Greg spoke with me about a state lobbying position in Illinois it is cold up there too....hmmm yeaaaaa.

Than Vs. Then

yea this is more for me THAN you,


Unlike then, than is not related to time. Than is used in comparative statements.

~He is taller than I am.
~Other than the interest on a small inheritance, he had no income.
~Today's students certainly do seem to read less than students in previous generations did.


Then is used either as a time marker or with a sequence of events.

~I took all of the exams in the morning, and then I spent the rest of the day catching up on sleep.
~Back then we knew what was expected of us.
~I bought apples from this orchard last summer, but I seem to remember paying more for them then.

13 seconds

*i gotta be honest, i am slightly fearful for this. I know a lot of you are die hard Republicans...don't get me wrong, i am not die hard but i am a Maverick! However i will admit when something stinks, even if the stench is coming from myside of the fence. So if you are a republican who cannot admit when you are weak or the party is weak, Just ignore this.

PBS has an online poll posted asking if Sarah Palin isqualified. Apparently the right wing knew about thisin advance and are flooding the voting with YES votes.
The poll will be reported on PBS and picked up bymainstream media. It can influence undecided votersin swing states.
Please do two things -- takes 20 seconds.
1) Click on link and vote yourself.
Here's the link:
2) Then send this to every single Obama-Biden voteryou know, and urge them to vote and pass it on.
The last thing we need is PBS saying their viewersthink Sarah Palin is qualified.

i honestly believe that OJ Simpson did not do the crimes that he was found gulity for
i honestly believe that the all white jury KNEW that they were going to find him gulity before they heard the facts
i honestly believe that OJ killed two people 14 years ago
and i honestly believe that he deserves what he is about to get (sentenced to)

Karma is a bitch
