Just a friendly reminder that you have until Tuesday at 11:59 EDT to enter the Great Seatmate contest (details here).

Each time you Tweet me and tell me why you’d be a great seatmate (and hashtag with #greatseatmate) counts as 1 entry. 5 max per day.
Each time you write on my Facebook wall and tell me why you’d be a great seatmate counts as 1 entry. 5 max per day.
10 max entries per day total (5+5). Some of my favorite entries so far (there are so many!):

I would be the perfect seatmate as you will learn all about the Greek debt crisis as I was born & raised there #greatseatmate
I carry mint gum with me on flights (which i chew quietly) – i also have enough to share with my neighbor. #greatseatmate
Need to know the location of the nearest exit in case of emergency? I’ll memorize the safety card for you #greatseatmate
I often bake cookies/brownies the night before my flight, and I share with my seatmates (if they’re nice) #greatseatmate
Facebook entries:
I’m a great seatmate because I smell of elderflowers
I’m a great seatmate because I am a biscoff connoisseur.
I wouldn’t complain if you farted
<-Does not look at porn while in flight=perfect seatmate
and then a melodic entry…
(sung to the tune of the Letter, by the Box Tops)
Gimme a first class ticket for an aeroplane,
Ain’t got time to take economy.
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
…’Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize.

I don’t care how much money I gotta spend,
Got to get back to the Star Alliance Mega Do 3,
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
‘Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize.

Well, next to the point guy, I’m gonna be the best seatmate,
The kind you couldn’t forget about no mo’.
Listen mister Kelly can’t you see I got to get back
To my Star Alliance Mega Do 3 once a-mo’–anyway…

Gimme a first class ticket for an aeroplane,
Ain’t got time to take economy.
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
‘Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize.

WOW!

Also, I’m also giving away some gag gifts from infamous department store Tokyu Hands (from my June Tokyo trip) so if you want to Tweet or Facebook about #badseatmates I’ll pick the best responses. Some of my favorites so far:

“Oh, this cute little dog? His name’s Fido. He’s never flown before but I’m sure he’ll be quiet . . .” #badseatmate
“I ordered us both a couple white zinfandels. #badseatmate
@thepointsguy Oh, was that your drink? #badseatmate
If I win, can I bring my 23-month-old baby? #badseatmate

I seriously haven’t laughed out loud so many times in a while, so thank you all for having fun with this! I’ll be very excited to see who my seatmate is come Wednesday and whether they abide by the #greatseatmate tips you’ve all offered up!
