Hey, Gamer Girls! Want to Join an All-Girl Team for Modern Warfare 2?

Hello, friends. You might have noticed I haven’t been posting as frequently lately. I blame Modern Warfare 2 (LOL). Yes, I started playing MW2 online via the PlayStation network, and it is very fun, and very time-consuming. It appeals to my obsessive-compulsive personality, and I’m like Pavlov’s dog when I hear the electric guitar riff during gameplay, because I get so excited to see what new reward I’ve unlocked! I mean, without the panting and salivating…

Ooooh, a new attachment for my M16A4?! What is it? Under-mounted grenade launcher? Holographic sight? Can I have it now? Please please please?

So I’ve made it through all 70 levels of the online game once so far. And even though I enjoyed having the AK47 and all of its attachments at my disposal, I decided to enter Prestige mode and start over again. Not because I’m awesome. Definitely not. Because I need more practice, and because I missed the frequent unlocks and rewards that come at lower levels!

I don’t mind going against the boys in Team Deathmatch alone, but I thought it would be fun to put together a group of girls who play together from time to time. We’re all busy and have real life work and responsibilities, so this isn’t anything formal or demanding. But if you’re a girl who plays MW2 on the PS3 network, change your clan tag to [GRRL] and leave your online ID in the comments below. I’m projectalice00. I’ll add you as a friend and maybe we’ll find a few other gals who want to pwn boys together.

P.S.: Boys, we still love you. But this clan is just for us. See you at the Deathmatch. 🙂 *kiss kiss*

UPDATE: Since so many people are commenting and want to join the team, I made a slick form to collect your info. This will be used to keep everybody in touch by e-mail, and we can keep the team list updated and such. Please Join the All-Girl Gaming Team and tell your gaming girlfriends, too! Yaaay!

A Quick Giveaway – Free Olympics Stuff from Coke!

Hello, dear friends! I’m so excited about the upcoming Vancouver Olympic Winter Games! I love snow, I love Vancouver (Hubby and I honeymooned there!), and my kids are becoming huge fans of snowboarder Shaun White. My boys, ages 10 (almost 11) and 8, think Shaun is awesome, love watching him in the halfpipe, and even want to wear t-shirts from his clothing line!


Win a shirt with this IFST logo on one side and the Coca-Cola logo on the other side!

But you don’t have to be an Olympic snowboarder to enjoy playing in the snow. Actually, you don’t even need to go outside. Want to celebrate the Winter Olympics without the risk of frostbitten extremities or slush inside your socks? Check out snowballthrowing.com, a site designed to get people excited about the Olympics and playing in the snow.

The site highlights the fun, fictional “International Federation of Snowball Throwing,” (IFST) and includes videos with information and training tips for aspiring Olympic Snowballers. In the spirit of Olympic fun, Coca-Cola is offering a few lucky readers the chance to take home an “official” IFST t-shirt or a set of 8 commemorative Beijing Olympics Coke bottles!
