Ok, corny title, I know, but it fits. A while back I started a profile on tripadvisor.com after months and months of lurking. Since then I've posted about 2 reviews of places I have been (you can read them, and be my "travel buddy" here). Well, after doing that I got an email from TripAdvisor telling me that they're sending me a free hat for my contributions. Strange. Good marketing, I guess, but now I have just another thing that I don't really need. I'm not complaining though...you never know when you'll want a random ball cap that won't break your heart if you lost it.
