    Beware agents asking favors...

    Okay, I feel like an UTTER goober.

    Without getting into details, I offer this free advice: If an agent you don't know asks you to please post a message here about that agent's credentials...don't do it. Just say no. Because there will be more to it than you know. And you won't find out about it until it's too late.

    ((Sheesh))

    If there are any awards out there for Good Intentions Gone Horribly Awry, please nomimate me.

    Yeah, don't sweat it. You had no way to know what was going on behind the scenes. You tried to do something nice so good for you!

    Well, I think this thread should be immediately highjacked to extol the many virtues of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream - my favorite.

    Baskin & Robbins wins first

    Breyer's Light wins second (even over the Breyer's regular)

    Perks, I admire and respect you...but dude, Breyer's Mint Chip is the best.

    Have you tried the light? I don't do diet anything, but the light Mint Chip is even cooler than the regular, because it's not as heavy. It makes the dark chocolate stand more pronounced.

    If there is, this week you & I just might tie for it. Though mine's been confined to off-line stuff.

    Like they've said before, how were you to know? So not the drama. (Yeah, it's a Kim Possible-ism, I can't help it.)

    Okay, you convinced me to try it. Maybe.

    I'm always happy to share an award for overly emotional AW person. Hope you're doing OK.

    And thanks. "So not the drama." I LOVE this. I think I'm going to have to morph back into a kid and start watching cartoons again...What did we have then, Smurfs and Snorks? Talk about unfair...
