If anyone cares...
So I don't know if anyone cares but the radio station Alice is doing this "everyday awards" promotional thing where you can earn points by really doing almost nothing which you can then redeem for prizes. (So really Doing Nothing = Prizes) Here's the info page and the catalog of stuff you can get. Basically every day they tell you the word of the day and if you enter it on the website you get 200 points. You can get points for other things too, but this is the easiest and because I hear it everyday on my way to Michele's house anyway I might as well get something out of it. And if you're like, "but I'll never hear this word of the day", I have only one thing to say, "duh. I'll know it and I like to share." And that is equal to 1000 points a week. Some of the prizes are pretty cool although for some of them it would take a while to get THAT many points. Whatever though, I'm going to attempt it anyways. They also update it every now and again with new prizes.
Right okay so the point of this entry was not for the following, it was informational only, but if you're interested in participating and getting the free stuff well I can get some points when you sign up and don't you want to do something nice for me? So if you're going to sign up let me know before you do and I can send out an email that will get me some points. Yea. Yea. Prizes, Swag and more stuff for me.
That is all.

hmmm....i'm willing to get you points if you're willing to tell me the word of the day everyday.
Totally. I'll even tell you today's. Hold on I will send you the email.
foot tapping....it's only been a minute but come on already i'm waiting.
I did it I sent the email!
hmm it won't let me log back in! bastards! grumble. i did get my 200 points for apple though.
You should get another 500 points for just signing up. And I got my 100 points thank you very much!
Why won't it let you back in. stupid machines.
what's today's (3/13) word of the day, I listened, but can't remember.
dear wuwuwu chris,
she was getting her wisdom teeth out today and not listening to the radio. and i have no idea what it was cause she usually tells me. so you, sir, are out of luck.
Well it was Taste and today's was good and do you know what the whole week's worth of words makes up? I'll tell you:
Cookies and milk taste good. Aren't they clever over at Alice.
yeah, are you okay? are you chipmunky? do you need anything? TAKE PICTURES!!!
Hi -- we blew it this morning and didn't get the VCR set properly to get the "word of the day" for 3/15. Did anyone listen to Hooman on KPIX and pick up the word this morning?
It's IDIOT. (honest I swear that's the word) I got up drug induced from my wisdom teeth medication this morning and managed to watch it.
PS Kristen. I'm not chimpmunky. Just a little sore. But no brusing and no swelling the only bad thing to happen was I threw up on Thursday, but I'm ok now. I go buy my mom's bday present now.
Thanks! Just what we were looking for. Glad this site exists!
Anyone got todays Word of the Day? I'm desperate to get this Robbie Williams lounge performance!!!
Hey, on the Alice website, it says that you will get 500 bonus points if you sign up to take a Kaplan practice test (located in Berkeley and SF). I think all you need to do is just sign-up, you don't actually have to take the test. If anyone is willing to do that and then share the bonus code, that would be superb!
I missed the word of the day,I was wondering if you could find in your hart to email me the word,
Did anyone catch today's word? I'm a faithful morning listener who overslept this morning... doh! I missed it... if you can help me out by emailing the word, I promise to get you back next time you miss it! Thanks!
Thanks to all for the words of the day. I can't always listen at the right times! You are great help. Good luck on the rewards that you seek.
Thanks so much, Trevor. Please e-mail me if you ever need the word, I almost always have it! :)
In case anyone was wondering, today's word of the day is "hearty."
the word of the day is"drunk"
To anyone looking for the word of the day I've created a category on the main page (wwww.cementhoizon.com/nutstoyou) which shows the word of the day. I will try to update daily by 9:00 am. If anyone every gets bonus codes that they would like to share, please email me and I will post that on the site as well.
Hi! Can someone please tell me what the word of the day is today? Thanks so much!
I thought it was CHANGE, but when I put it in it told me I was wrong. So I think it's CHANGES, but I'm not positive, hence why I haven't updated the main page with today's word. I didn't want to give anyone the wrong one.
So anyone else know for sure?
I tried CHANGES. It's not the right word either. Just in case anyone was going to try it. Thanks for trying to help the team. It is appreciated.
Today's word of the day is "change." Perhaps you typed it in incorrectly, because when I tried it, it worked for me. Thanks Nuala!
Well it seems like I got credit it for it afterall as this morning I had more points. It must have been a computer glitch.
Does anyone know today's word....I didn't catch it this morning. I know its late so if I dont get it its ok. Thanks everyone.
Again anyone looking for the word of the day:
I've been putting the word of the day on the main page of my website daily. Please go visit:
Depending on how big your screen is the word will either be to the right of your screen or after the blog entries. I try and update the word daily before 9:00 am.
Thanks for posting the word of the day. You rock! If you like Indian food check out Vik's Restaurant in Berkeley.
Hey, Do you know what the word of the day was yesterday 4/7/03? My girlfriend ran out to the car to hear it but just missed it... I called Webster on the phone and he wouldn't tell me but said "Its a BLANK to get up in the morning". We couldn't guess it so now were just curious.
Do you post the word of the day everyday? :) Please say YES!
Yes I post the word everyday on the main page:
I'm sorry I don't remember what the word was on Monday.
i vote it's pain. "it's a PAIN to get up in the morning."
Nope that wasn't it. It's annoying that I can't remember.
Webster said it was 8 letters....
I really just don't remember.
It might have been struggle. That sounds familiar. I'm going with it. Struggle.
I am glad to see that word-of-the-day comments have now exceeded the length any of the multi-commented flame wars other places on Cement Horizon.
sure thing... send me out the email and i'll be willing to play ball.
I just started a Yahoo! group for the Everyday rewards thing becasue i'm too lazy to actually go earn bonus codes. If you're interested you can go to:
And however's website this is wouldn't have to update it themselves everyday. The group might not be a success, but what the hell, right?
Missed the word at 7 and 1... do you have it? If so, please tell me!
she's not at work today. you should try martin's yahoo group thing. they might have it.
However today's word was GLOOMY
What was today's word? (06/27/03)
If anybody knows I would appreciate it.
i forgot the word today. Does anyone know it?
I don't know yesterday's but today's is STOOGE
I want to talk with you.... I'm writing from Cincinnati, OH and planning on moving to Ojai/Santa Barbara in September. You are living my dream life. I will explain. Will you write me back?
Sorry to hear about the break up. But as the poet Rumi says, "Where there is ruin there is hope for treasure."
