UPDATE 2: Gah! Gmail’s giving out more invitations! That’s it!!! Anyone wants a Gmail account, drop me a mail at IWantGmail [AT] sashiweb [DOT] com or in the comment box below. First-come, first serve! Help me get rid of these invites!!
UPDATE 1: Apparently some people are experiencing some server-error problems when trying to sign up for the Gmail account via invites. Rest assured, the invites are still valid and if you don’t succeed the first time, just try again later. If you still are not able to sign up after about 24 hours, drop me an e-mail. Cheers!
First of all, to those people who tried their hand at the caption-writing, I wish I could extend an invite to all of you. But hey, if you weren’t successful here, fret not! There are a whole bunch of bloggers and others who’re giving away invites for free, and of course, eventually Gmail will be opened up to the public too.
Also, if you thought your caption was very funny and merited an invite but I didn’t send you one, well, by all means go ahead and blame me. I do have a skewed sense of humour, for which I blame British television.
Anyways, here are the selected recipients of the Gmail invites:
Picture A [The Day After Tomorrow]
“Come here you guys. You won’t believe what these polar bears are doing!”
Picture B [CSI]
“See, I have ten right here. Pass me the scissors and get ready for overtime tonight.”
Picture C [Vinnie & Gazza]
“..and they blamed Gazza’s loss of form on booze and drugs. If only they knew. Ouch!”
To the others – Michael, William, Calvin, and ribsaj – thanks for participating! And I do hope you guys get your Gmail accounts eventually too! 🙂
That’s it for me. No more invites to give out (for now), and if for some reason Google chooses to torment me again with more invites, I’ll just give them out for free on a first-come, first-serve basis. No contests, no gimmicks, no bribery… well, maybe the last one still can lah…. >:)
