Show And Tell
Remember Show- and- Tell when you were in elementary school? I do it here occasionally.
Anyway, I've mentioned before one of my few hobbies is entering sweepstakes and, yes, I do win things. This Alienware computer I'm using right now was probably my biggest win. My Canon personal copier probably my next biggest. I've also won all kinds of lesser prizes through the years.
This Belkin Messenger laptop case is my latest win. I won it a month or two ago as an instant win in the Dell ATG Holiday Gift Upgrade sweepstakes. When it told me I'd won it I wasn't really sure what I'd won as I'd never heard the name before. It just said I'd won a Belkin Messenger. What the heck is that, thought I.
I'd actually forgotten about that win but, for some reason, kept thinking that something should show up on my doorstep eventually as it had been some time since I'd won anything. Sometimes they don't tell you you've won. They just ship the prize to you.
So I'm out in my garage yesterday and UPS stops in the middle of the street, in front of my house. I figured it was something Jeannette, across the street, ordered. She's always getting stuff delivered. Nope, he comes up to me and gives me a big box.
Once I opened the box and read the enclosed letter I remembered I'd won this thing. I'm surprised at the quality. Pretty nicely made nylon notebook carrying case. Design is pretty much the same as the one that came with the laptop some of you gave me but it's nylon.
Pretty cool, huh?
