The month began with me making plans to go to BlogHer with my free JCPenney/Dockers flight. It turned out that JCPenney/Dockers found it easier to abandon their promotion, ruining hundreds of hard-working people’s vacations than commit to their deal. JCPenney never returned my phone calls, and I ended up not going to Blogher.
As I watched all the happy people in San Francisco wearing McDonald’s bags and eating cheeseburgers, I sat at my laptop and turned bitter. I started ranting uncontrollably on my blog about this and that. I stopped shaving and showering and eating. Eventually, my own mother kicked me out onto the street, calling me a loser who can’t even get into the business or technology section of the New York Times.
But life has a funny way of turning things around! Yes, it is the circle of life. The two strands of the story have intertwined. The higher forces have found a way to unify. I now know the truth — the world is like it FOR A REASON. While they too busy to answer my calls or compensating their disappointed customers, JCPenney has found time to give 20 BlogHer members each a $500 gift card so these “BlogHer Reviewers” can shop the new Linden St. home furnishings line at JCPenney and write about it on their blogs.
JCPenney and BlogHer — together at last! …in the the circle of life!
