Happy and Hopeful

I'm engaged! Yay! Congratulations to me!

The only thing that's stressing me out right now is that my dear fiance doesn't want a honeymoon because he says it's too much hassle and stress. I tried to tell him it would be less stress, a chance to relax, and that was the whole point, but he thought it would be too much work to set it all up. So, just at the right time I find out that there is a CheaperThanHotels site for New Zealand!

New Zealand is the perfect romantic destination, small and isolated, but civilized, with plenty of arts and entertainment, all the allure of exploring a new country, but the security of exploring a new country that speaks English! Whether you'd like to check out Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Queenstown or all four, CheaperThanHotels has a solution for you.

I'm really excited, because it will be so easy I might even be able to persuade my stubborn fiance that a honeymoon could be a great, convient, and inexpensive vacation. 5 star accomodations begin at just NZD$75.00 (that's 59.1436 USD as of right now)

Quick Update

So Associated Content sent me my payments for the past seven months today. I'm not sure why it took so long, but it totaled $1.75. Not much, but it's for only two articles, and it's in addition to the initial payments of $4 or $5 per article. It's also not bad considering that I haven't logged in for months.

Also, I am five points away from a cashout at Global Test Market survey site. It took seven months, but it's a $50 cashout and it's pretty fun and easy. If you're feeling grateful, leave a comment or send me a quick email (retrogradesonnet [at] gmail .com) so I can send you a referral invitation.

Play and Profit

Mac Poker Online is a site which gives information to Mac users on where the best online poker sites are which run software compatible with Macintosh computers. The site is well put-together and features a blog on its main page, although it doesn't seem to have been updated recently.

The site is aesthetically pleasing, and is especially well-geared towards a card-playing mindset. It has information on specific sites like Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars as well as some special deals they've worked out.

I don't have a Mac, but if I did I'd be sure to use this site to comparison shop for online poker venues. I also found some links that would be very helpful for any poker player, Mac or PC, online or in real life, such as the Poker Rule Guide. The site is available in nine languages right now, so just about anyone could get something out of it!

All in all Mac Poker Online is a great niche site with some interesting and useful information for general audiences too!
