Gmail swap
Look at all the cool stuff I could have gotten instead of giving away 3 extra Gmail accounts for free. One week free vacation rental in Maui, a custom piece of chainmail jewelry including shipping, and a custom fairytale written just for me. I would have been set.

Since Michelle hooked me up with a free beta account and I've been actively using it, I was given three accounts to give away. I gave one to Stace, one to a guy at work, and I posted about a week ago advertising the one I had left to whoever was interested. Kelly asked and I gave her the third one.

Apparently, there is very little crossover between people I know and people willing to write custom fairy tales for a free account. Which is really too bad.

So I guess the question is how did Michelle get the beta account?

I don't even want one - I have a hard enough time keeping up with my other four email addresses - but I'm just curious.

Michelle works for Google. Employees had free accounts to give out.

AHA!
The answer, at last.
Phew.
