Princess Zelda Drawing

Hey there.  I'm still stuck in Zelda mode right now.  I started playing Twilight Princess and I started reminiscing about Ocarina of Time.  Tonight, I grabbed a piece of paper and pen and started to doodle.  I remember seeing this glass stained drawing of Link and Zelda.  I think it's from The Wind Waker.  Anyways, I wanted to draw the whole thing.. but I'm still a little rusty.  My artistic skills are not what they used to be.  But still... I managed to draw a pretty decent Princess Zelda.  Check it out.
Not too shabby, right?
I'll get around to posting more of my drawings here and there.  The girls like to ask for drawings from time to time.  Damn.... looking at this drawing, I realized that I missed a pearl type ball in her necklace.  Oh well... like I said... I'm still rusty.  Later!

The Secret World of Arrietty (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Giveaway

Hey there.  Who here loves all things Miyazaki?  I have always been a fan and I got the kids into Miyazaki films with Spirited Away and Ponyo.  Even though there are other great films before that (Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, etc.) Spirited Away will always have a special place in my heart because the kids just loved it.  While thinking in that vein, I decided that I will give away the latest masterpiece of Studio Ghibli away!  Enter to win a 2 disc Blu Ray/DVD Combo of The Secret World of Arrietty! Here's a recap of the film from Amazon:

Entering into the World of Pinterest

Hey there.  A question that I find myself asking my wife recently is, "what are you doing?" while she's staring at her Kindle Fire screen.  The answer these past couple of weeks has been, "Pinterest."  lol  Yeah, she's fallen into the endless list of ideas, recipes, pictures, DIY stuffs, and countless other subjects that make Pinterest so interesting.  My wife said that it's like fantasy football, but for women.  lol  I didn't want to get involved with Pinterest, but I must admit that seeing her laugh, go "Oh!", be intrigued, and inspired made me want to check it out.  I also saw it as a great way to promote the site... well... at least I think it will be.  I am still a rookie when it comes to Pinterest so I don't know exactly how I will use it.  I did manage to add a "pin it" button to each post but am still not sure if it will increase traffic.  That's why I would love to hear from you guys.  Especially my blogger friends.  Do you use Pinterest?  And if so, how do you use it to promote your site?  I added a few pics just to test it out but now I find myself with empty boards and I want to fill em up!  Let's hear it, friends.  How is Pinterest best used?  Later!

Booking That Las Vegas Hotel & Casino Getaway for Under $100

Las Vegas!!!  Here I come!!!
Hey there.  It's set.  Vacation time has been approved and it's time to book that Las Vegas getaway for a few days.  The wife and I sorely need it and just when we were talking about getting away for a few days, I get an Email from Groupon with an awesome deal for a 2 night stay at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for under $80.  The cool thing about Vegas is that it really doesn't matter where you stay since you want to visit all the casinos and attractions so you're really only looking for a place to sleep, but this deal included all you can drink alcoholic drinks from 4-8 pm, 2 free breakfasts, and 2 free entries to the day spa (and gym).  FREE DRINKS!!!!  That alone makes this deal worth it.  That's a pretty damn awesome deal, if you ask me.

If you're looking to score this deal, get to it.  Quantities are limited so you need to act fast before the deal is over.  The last possible day to score the deal is June 8th but they could be long gone by then.  So let's hear it, what are some of your favorite summer vacation spots?  Later!
