Have you been looking forward to the highly antisipated Gears of War 2? You’re not the only one! Want to have a peek at some videos, screenshots and news about the upcoming game release? Look no further than GamesRadar.com featuring the latest info on GEARS OF WAR 2. The Gears of War section is definately impressive as it allows you to see all the latest videos from E3, your basic news and info, as well as a direct link to the best prices to buy the game. It’s easy to navigate, pleasing to the gaming eye, and is so overflowing with information that you really shouldn’t miss it.
GoW2 not your style? So have a look at the exstensive GTA IV CHEATS they have on offer. This section is easily bookmark worthy with walkthroughs, unlockable info, easter eggs, driving tips and so much more! I spent a good few hours reading through all of the GTA 4 info and there are still things left for me to see. If you’ve been struggling through GTA 4, this really is the stuff you NEED to see because nothing is left out and you can easily get to the stuff that you’re really looking for.
While I’m not as familiar with the Xbox as I am with Playstation, even I can’t deny that the XBOX CHEATS section is comprehensive and full to the brim with cheats from all the best that Xbox can offer. You can choose to search for a game by name, browse by genre, or just have a look through the newest posted cheats. Just like the rest of the site, you can find your way around the Xbox section with no problem at all.
I am pleased to announce that my new blog is up and running now and ready for your reading pleasures!! I’d like to ask everyone that might have me on their bookmarks to change over to the new address because after this point, it will be very rare for me to update this blog.
Thanks bunches and I’ll see you over there!!
New and improved GirlieGeek!!
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!! Glad I thought about it today … even though it’s after midnight!
1. The Misanthtropic: Name something about humanity you absolutely hate.
People who think that being reliable is not an important quality to possess. If you’re not going to do it, don’t tell me you will. If you say you’ll be there at 9am, don’t stroll in wondering what my problem is at lunch time. If you can’t make a promise, DON’T!
2. The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent or bogus.
I’ve got to agree with Fracas on this one, this whole splogging/ blog scraper thing is really getting to me and grinding my nerves. I’ve had one incident with it so far and as you might imagine, I’m not pleased. I’d actually go as far as saying that I feel slightly used and cheated.
3. The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.
There are people in this world who never have and never will work for a penny in their lives. Myself, and SO many others will work 40-50 hours a week on low pay and barely scrape by enough to pay the rent and get some groceries while there are some who live in luxury because of the work of others. How unfair is that?
4. The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.
I give credit to all those people who slave away for next to nothing, and keep a smile on their face the whole time and not complain but enjoy the live they were given. There are some people who are always able to make the very best of what they have and are able to live beautiful and happy lives where some would complain and moan in the same situation.
5. The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.
I’ve always had a problem with admitting (and even seeing) when I am wrong or when I’m not acting very fair towards people. I am now constantly making a conscious effort to see things outside of my emotions. Stepping away from the situation for just one second before acting or speaking can make a huge difference in a relationship and I’m very proud of myself for taking the steps to make myself a better communicator.
6. The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.
I wish that it was easier for me to hop on a plane and see my sister and the rest of my family. I miss them more than they’ll ever know and it’s very hard sometimes to be so far away.
Now it’s your turn.
Feel free to participate every Monday!! Visit The Monday Melee page to find out how.
I’d like to wish all of the wonderful people who stop by on occasion and read what I have to say a very Happy New Year! I hope that 2008 brings you peace, happiness, luck and everything that you want it to! Although 2007 had some great things happening, there were also some not so great things. So far, 2008 seems very promising and I am looking forward to a fresh new year which I hope will bring happiness, love, learning, and big things for this blog!
As part of the New Year theme, I have decided to make some changes in the blog … which I believe are for the better!! Today I registered with a webhost and got myself a domain name which will allow me to turn a corner with GirlieGeek and expand on what I’ve already got. I am extremely grateful to WordPress for their outstanding services and support which have been a joy to use. Once all is set up with regards to my new host, I will set up the new version of WordPress which will allow me more freedom and choice but will still provide me with the things I love so much about my existing WordPress blog. Hopefully the change over won’t prove too challenging for me and all will go off without a hitch!!
So in the coming weeks you can expect to see a new and sexier looking GirlieGeek, the completion of my Karazhan boss tactics page and some more goodies thrown in there! Although I do plan on monetizing the blog in some way, I promise that it will not compromise the integrity of the blog but will make me work harder for my money! Up to this point, GirlieGeek has been lacking in a clear focus of sorts and while I am still unsure where it’s focus should lie, I hope to improve upon the base that I’ve made and start a whole new ballgame!!
Thank you for stopping by, reading, and commenting. I do appreciate the support and hope to return the favor! Here’s to the New Year!!
What the hell is a splog?! Yeah that’s what I was asking myself earlier when reading this post by Fracas. She explains it much better but in a nutshell a “splog” is a blog that takes content from the blogs of other people and uses it as content on it’s own. These people clearly aren’t clever enough to write their own posts so they resort to stealing work from other people and it’s NOT ok.
Please be aware that these splogs are out there and ensure that your content remains your own.

Dangerous things happen when I have free time and am poking around on Ebay. You can find just about anything on Ebay … and I mean anything! I find things that my bank balance doesn’t particularly appreciate … or my boyfriend really … but in fairness I also sell things so I think we can call it even (almost).
My most recent purchase? A set of 24 Nail Polish Pens. One end is a normal brush and the other end is a nail polish pen! How cool is that?? The idea was put into my head by a girl at work who always has nicely painted finger nails with little flowers or designs on them. When I asked her if she used a tooth pick to make the little flowers and things like I used to do she said that she had these tubes of polish with pen tips. So of course my immediate thoughts were along the lines of “I MUST have some of those!!” Don’t judge.
My Ebay addiction is not purely selfish. I recently bought L33tz0r “The Blues Brothers” on DVD for his birthday. I would have just gone to a store and bought it however you wouldn’t believe how difficult it is to find!! I looked everywhere!! I even asked at Blockbuster since they had copies to rent but they didn’t have any to sell. Ebay saved the day!!
I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’ll be spending the rest of the night looking up weird and random things on Ebay tonight … and fighting the urge to buy them.
