Be jealous

I won a raffle at the blogger party. Amongst the prizes were $300 in cash and free return flights on Virgin America.

 

My prize? An Intel flight suit. Apparently, Intel was sponsoring one of those Zero-G parabolic flights, and had some custom flight suits made. Do I get a flight on the vomit comet? Do I bollocks. Just the suit.

 

Not pictured is the huge Intel logo on the back. Discussions soon turned to the idea of wearing it, heading to the Intel booth on the show floor, and pretending to be booth staff. "Our new processor is smaller than an ant, but can do multiplication almost three times faster than even the most skilled ant."

 

Oh, and when I was carrying the suit, I felt something papery in one of the pockets. Of course, my first assumption was that there was a crisp $100 bill in there. Nope. Sick bag!
