So, when you're an internationally successful financial blogger like me, you receive numerous things in the mail all the time. "Please take this as a token of our affection, Annabelle!" They say, sending me cute dresses and nailpolish and various cute things beyond your imagining.
Oh, wait, sorry. I was confusing me with Gail Vaz-Oxlade for a minute.
This hard-working young woman helps sort Gail Vaz-Oxlade's fan mail for her.
Not really. This is me, with all the stupid flyers I get in the mail that build up my hopes and then dash them away just as quickly. Damn you, pizza flyers!
Needless to say, I was surprised to get a postal slip addressed to "Business Owner." I was intrigued when I went to the post office to pick up what turned out to be a smallish box. From Google. Like, from the Google Plex itself. And inside? A Google Hat!!
|This is me working THE GOOGLE HAT.|
Note: you can just about see that I'm also wearing my Sweet Valley High Team Jessica tee, also won on the internet. What's my secret? Enter every contest.
I'm of two minds as to what to do with THE GOOGLE HAT. I can either use it like a thinking cap, and wear it when blogging. Or, it may be one of the AMAZING PRIZES in my upcoming GIVEAWAY EXTRAVAGANZA. Stay tunes for deets on that. Or, I might try and sell it on eBay? I don't know yet.
Oh, right, and also link luuuurve. Inspired by THE GOOGLE HAT, these are all fashion-related links:
