Starbucks Coffee has a new contest that gives away a Vespa tour of Italy, new Vespas (only ET2s) and more. From February 26 to April 22, 2003 anytime you use and reload your Starbucks Card you'll be entered in the contest. Grand prize is a trip for two to tour Tuscany on Vespa scooters with 1st class air, seven days with breakfast, five nights of accomodations and three guided sightseeing tours and winners also get two Vespa ET2s upon their return home with two $500 Starbucks cards and two helmet vouchers. There are many many other prizes (including more Vespas) and also weekly drawings for $5.00.
I read the fine print for you...

you don't have to make a purchase to enter! Simply hand-print your name, address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, email address, day and evening phone numbers and the words "Starbucks Stirs You, Vespa Moves You Sweepstakes" on a 3" x 5" card and mail in a #10 envelope hand-printed to: "Starbucks Stirs You, Vespa Moves You Sweepstakes," P.O. Box 4137, Grand Rapids, MN 55730-4137. Enter as often as you wish, but only one entry per envelope, each of which must be mailed separately. No mechanical reproductions permitted. Entries must be postmarked no later than April 22, 2003.
But beware if you are a Canadian! "If a resident of Canada wins a prize, they will be required to correctly answer a timed, mathematical skill question."

Tiny Toy Scooter

My boss came into work the other day and approached me, hands behind his back, and said "I've got something for you." I brushed him off. Surely it was some nasty project that I'd loathe in a day or two. He shoves his hands in my face with this teeeny tiny little toy that he stole (well, asked for) from his children just to give to me. Awww. Yes indeed, that is a miniature replica of the popular "Zest" scooter.
