El Al Airlines Schwag

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

In a matter of days, I’m headed to Israel on a blogger’s delegation. We’ll be shown parts of Israel that are frequently-accessed by the public and then parts of Israel that tourists don’t even think to discover. This includes the Old City of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv-Jaffa, but also extends to universities that explore Israel’s technology advances.

I’ll be profiling a lot of the trip here and on other social channels, such as Twitter, FriendFeed, and Flickr.

To prepare us for the trip, El Al Airlines, my most favorite airline for flying to Israel, sent my husband (who will be attending as well) and I a gift. We got a bag, a big “chip clip,” a money clip, a stuffed animal thing (which is uber cute), a deck of cards, a flashlight on a keychain, a notepad, a luggage tag, and a little inflatable pillow. Some of the items are pictured below:

I’m excited to go on this trip and am super psyched to share the experience with my readers. Stay tuned and check out this blog and my other channels for updates. You can bet that once I’m back, there will be more posts on this site.

Mountain Dew Voltage Sweepstakes

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I love Mountain Dew. In fact, I never had this Mountain Dew voltage drink until last week and it is GOOD.

(Pictured above: a cool t-shirt and drink that was sent to my doorstep)

The cool part about Mountain Dew Voltage is that while the drink is good by itself, I hear that Mountain Dew is also running a related Voltage sweepstakes. There’s an easy way to sign up and be eligible for lots of great prizes at DEWmocracy Voltage (which include an XBOX 360, gaming gear, iPods, and more). How come nobody sent me any of the good stuff? 🙂

In any event, it doesn’t hurt to sign up, and the prizes look fun. Good luck!
