Silly customer service of the day.

Ok, I know it's a gimmick, but it's a gimmick that made me smile.

Mary -
Thanks for your order with CD Baby!

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Sunday, June 22nd.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'. We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you once again,

Derek Sivers, president, CD Baby

yeah, I love CD Baby. What'd you buy? (and if you're interested in Teddy Goldstein, let me know . . . there's a house concert at my place on Friday nigth. . .)
Derek is a bit of a fruitcake (in a goodway). I've spoken to him on the phone a few times. He is apparently a good friend of another friend of mine (which is how I know who he is).

You should use their web service (hostbaby)... their emails are just as silly. Of course all I can find is a short one about forgetting your password:

Perhaps you forgot something?
