Peace

Well I am happy to report my little skirmish with Koo Koo Roo is now over and everything is fine and dandy.

I received an e-mail from Alan, their VP of Operations yesterday, asking for a number where he could contact me to chat about the situation. I wrote back with my work number, he called a little bit after that and we did indeed have a good chat. Nice guy.

Apparently he and Cathy, the woman I had written my original e-mails to, weren't aware of the web site I had set up, nor that there was now a Facebook character named Roosevelt Clucksworth. I told him I'd turn all that over to him and send him the passwords to access the pages, etc.

As far as the contest results -- he said, and rightly so, that it was meant to be a fun thing and that he and his cohort Cathy had some lengthy discussions on what to do about my claim to fame. I think he was sort of waiting to get an idea of what I was expecting but to tell you the truth, by now I was no longer upset and thought the whole thing was pretty funny so I wasn't expecting anything.

He wound up saying he would send me a gift card for what I thought was a more than fair amount so I'm happy, and he seemed to be happy and so here we are with a happy ending. I went back and modified the web page I did and also changed the Facebook page.

Yesterday I told you about my review of that mediocre book I received from the Amazon Vine program. Before I edited it to complain about the fanboys and fangirls giving out "unhelpful" votes to unfavorable reviews, I had zero helpful and 4 unhelpful votes. Now there are 3 helpful and 8 unhelpful. But no one dared write a comment for fear of receiving my scathing retort, haha.. That book really is a mess. I'm not kidding.

And today was another Vine offering. Pickings were slim. I ended up sending for a set of 4 pliers.

Today's YouTube really doesn't have much to do with anything but I love this scene. It's only 11 seconds, so watch it!

Hey pretty cool. Glad you got something out of it. BUT, you won't get any ink out of it, I presume. Oh well, at least you get some chicken.

Me thinks you caved.

As long as you're happy, that is all that matters.
