So, who had the coolest weekend?

We got a couple of entries for the Cool Duel, but from last night’s chat, I know that there are many more who are meaning to submit entries.

I’m sure that everyone is on the edge of their Starbucks stools and office chairs to see what the big prize is. The winner of the Cool Duel will receive…

A $10 iTunes gift card!

Get those submissions in by midnight EST tonight!

I hope that you had a great, very cool weekend! Mine rocked, but I’m not sure if I’ll enter the Cool Duel or not. Who knows…

To enter the Cool Duel (and we hope that you do), email a short list of the cool things that you did this weekend to our email address to the right. Tomorrow, I’ll compile the entries and post them, keeping them anonymous. In the comments, America will vote on who had the coolest weekend! Oh, and the prize?? We’ll announce that tomorrow, as soon as we come up with something!

Also, who’s up for chatting tonight, 9:00 PM EST? We’ll keep it at around 2 hours – it worked well last week.

Please submit those entries!
