Can We All Get A Piece Of This?

My first thought on reading Fuse #8 Production’s post Cabot Gone Corporate was to agree with her. Absolutely.

My second thought was, what corporate promotional deals can I swing for my books?

How about Oil of Olay since there's a grandmother in Happy Kid!? Also Clairol because Nana dyes her hair. Hey, if I have some kind of deal with those companies, shouldn’t I get a discount on the products I use?

Then there's Adidas because it carries a line of taekwondo uniforms and tkd is a big part of Happy Kid! I wear cheaper doboks, but if I had a deal with Adidas and they gave me a discount, I’d be happy to wear theirs.

A composting toilet company makes sense because I give those things a shout-out in Saving the Planet & Stuff. In fact, I’ll consider a promotional deal from any environmental company. Marketers of products for solar homes ought to give this some serious thought—particularly since I would love a solar home and, once again, I’m hoping for a discount from my sponsor.

Finally, St. Albert Brand Cheese in St. Albert, Ontario works because it sells cheese curds, which are mentioned in The Hero of Ticonderoga. My Great-uncle Oscar also worked there once upon a time, so I have a family connection as well. Two reasons for them to promote me and send me free cheese curds, which I cannot find anywhere around where I live.

I'm sure there are more ways I can think of to work together with corporations to our mutual advantage. Thank you, Meg Cabot, for opening the door.

The game has a lot of rf gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much rf online gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can get a lot of rf money in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the rf cp you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone. i like the cheap rf gold very much.
