Weekend Update

So, I tweeted John Mayer about the letter that I wrote him. I have heard that he is very active on Twitter, so I figured why not give it a shot? Not surprisingly, I haven't heard anything back from him. Something tells me he is keeping a very lo pro these days. (P.S.--if you'd like to follow me on twitter, click here .)

I also realized that I never updated y'all on the J.Crew situation from a few months back. There was a pretty neat resolution, and so I figured I should share it.

The day my letter arrived in NYC, my husband got an e-mail from Mr. Drexler himself.
It said:

Hi [my husband's first name] - hope you don't mind that I'm sending but please forward this on to [my first name] (as did not have her email) -

Hi [],

Thx much for kind note - really appreciate - always trying to do the best we can do - have a great weekend!


Millard Drexler
Chairman and CEO
J. Crew Group
770 Broadway
New York, NY 10003

(Dictated while traveling MD:tv)

Random sidenote: the reason J.Crew doesn't have my email address is because I have a separate email address for any non-personal correspondence. It is just a wacky name that I made up whenever I need to give an address to anything that I think my sell/trade my email. This is a really good way to keep your inbox from getting clogged.

My husband liked that it said "dictated while traveling" and I have to say, I thought that was pretty cool too. Probably because I don't do much dictating or much traveling these days :P

So a timely, somewhat personalized response (allegedly) from the CEO himself. Can't get much better than that.

So that's the news and I am outta here...
