I blogged a while ago about a product I received from Mobile Fun UK, where my penpal Natalie works.  Today I received an email from them asking if I would mention their new promotion in a blog post.  I am happy to comply.

Mobile Fun is running a new promotion to correspond with the release of a new product, called StuckBuddy, which can be found here.  The StuckBuddy is a universal suction cup, which can be used for anything.

The photos on the page show it being used to prop up a smartphone or tablet/e-reader, or as a portable hook to hang light things.  From the Mobile Fun Blog:

The StuckBuddy is a small suction cup which can be used to easily and sturdily prop up any smartphone, tablet or similar device.  It’s a simple idea that makes a big change – not only can it hold your device in either landscape or portrait mode, it will also stop it slipping and sliding around on the desk and is portable enough to carry wherever you go.  There’s really no need to lug around a bulky, expensive stand when this low-cost solution can slip easily into your pocket or handbag!

This looks like a very versatile product, since it is small enough to carry with you.  The price of the StuckBuddy is £4.99, or about $8.26 with U.S. currency conversion.  But fear not, Mobile Fun is giving these away with every purchase.

By using the promotional code ‘BUDDY‘ in the rebate code box (when you check out), Mobile Fun will send you one for free.  I periodically browse the site for accessories that don’t require plugs, because of the difference in UK/US plug ends, and I’m very interested in getting one of these myself, to test out its versatility.

Note: This blog was written as a favour to Mobile Fun.  I am in no way paid for my opinions or this review.

Blogging whilst at work.  I’ve been meaning to write something for quite some time, but I’m only now getting around to it.

General catch-up

3 weekends ago Atlanta hosted Gay Pride.  I went to the festivities all 3 days (Friday to Sunday) and meant to blog about it.  We see how well that went.  I’ll write up a separate entry soon, because all the fun that was had cannot simply fit into this one entry alone.

By a stroke of luck at a local Barnes & Noble, I got my hands on the Complete Sherlock Holmes: Vol. 1 & 2.  I am part way through the The Sign of Four.  Finding quiet time to read is difficult at best; I’ve taken to locking myself in the bathroom and bringing the book to work with me for some alone time.  I’m not complaining, I rather enjoy it.

I’ve felt creative as of late, a smattering of poems and a partial story have been written.  None of it complete, should work on this.

My general rantings, however, deal with the atrocities on the Georgia interstates that claim to be suitable drivers.  They’re not.  They’re brainless, devolved beasts with 2-ton death missles, and that’s putting it mildly.  I don’t know what’s been emptied into the water supply to make everyone bat-shit crazy when it comes to driving on the interstate, but it’s been effective.  Maybe it’s the weather or the recent full moon.  Whatever the case may be, it’s made me think about modifying my car; perhaps into something along the lines of a tricked-out death machine you see in video games.

Not realistically possible for my make and model car, but I digress.

What else?  OH, Emilie Autumn’s second printing of her novel The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls finally shipped.  Now if mum will send my copy to me, all will be right in the world.  I cannot wait to have my copy actually in my hands.

OH!  Also, I’m so excited about Rammstein playing their first U.S. show in 10 years!  They’ll be in NY on Dec. 11th, and I HAVE TICKETS TO BE THERE!!  I’m so excited about this, I cannot wait for November to pass.

I also have tickes for Trans Siberian Orchestra next month.  More excitement.

At any rate, that seems to be the gist of it.  I’ve noticed since picking up Sherlock Holmes my speech has gotten far more proper.  As it should be, I suppose.  Not many in America know what proper grammar is.  Indeed, half my peers still use their/there/they’re and your/you’re improperly, and we’ve been graduated from high school 6 years.  No matter, at least I can say grammar/literature class were my best studies.

I’ll end this now, work to be done.
