Oh snap -- the Midnight Sun magnets are in!

midnight sun magnetsWho's got a spot on their fridge for a lovely little Midnight Sun magnet?

I know you do.

A box of super sweet Midnight Sun magnets landed on my desk today, compliments of the Baltimore Sun marketing department and our crew of community coordinators.

I don't have an exact figure, but there are a ton of these things in this box. I can't count them all. There are just too many.

That's why, if you e-mail me ( your home address, I'll mail you one ASAP. Because, I mean, everybody could use a little Midnight Sun in their kitchen.

I'm going to carry some in my pockets and hand-deliver them to bars around town ...

In fact, all of the Baltimore Sun bloggers got magnets featuring their logos. As you see, I'm trying to collect the whole set.

I'm also trying to get everybody to pitch in to rent a helicopter, hover over Light Street and drop them on unsuspecting commuters during rush hour.

Please send a bunch of 'em to 100 N. Holliday St, 21202! Wait, they're gift cards, right?

I have only two questions, Sessa:

How many? and Give them to me.

I think you want to make that, "Most of the Baltimore Sun bloggers got magnets featuring their logos."

Just sayin'.

If you send me one, I'll put it right next to these!

And if my link didn't work as i highly suspect it may not have-let me know and I'll email you the pic. Methinks you will approve. Cheers!
