Win $200 in Via Rail train coupons
VIA Rail has a fun new website written by Virtual Vivian. The name of the blog, On the go with Vivian, is written by a real person but Vivian isn't really a real person. Got that? What's extra cool is she (he?) is so good that she leaves comments on other's blogs (like this Closet Canuck blog) when any reference is made to VIA Rail. Vivian is good. OK, thanks to Google.
Now Vivian is holding a contest. Just sign up to be her Facebook friend (you need to join Facebook anyway, it's really fun!) and your name will be entered into a contest to win $200 in train coupons. Not bad, eh?
I do think that Vivian is on the younger side. Her bio lists some of her favorites as Juno and Garden State (movies), Vampire Music and Spoon (music) and Heroes and Grey's Anatomy (TV). What, no Canadian shows? Oh, she likes Coronation Street, too -- but that's from across the pond.
