I received this today from someone pretty high on our corporate food chain:

I thought you might find it interesting that your blog found its way to me after several forwards through the Microsoft channels – I received the forward from the Microsoft person who is our National Business Development Manager. He started our meeting out this morning telling me we had a few items to discuss that weren’t on the agenda. He had received a few emails internally at MS that we needed to address (and made a very serious face).

Needless to say, I got a little nervous... but I kept reading:

He brought this up on the screen for me to see and I thought “Oh no…” then reading on realized all was OK!

What followed was an internal Microsoft email thread discussing a post I made recently. It was this one: 5 Reasons I Hate My Zune and not everyone was in on the joke at first. Fortunately, a few MS folks found it pretty funny and decided to share it with their peers.

Just to be on the safe side though, I'm adding this.

Dear Microsoft,

I really do love my Zune... and thanks for scaring the crap out of my boss. She took the opportunity to pass that particular feeling on to me. :)

Sorry, I forwarded that post to a few distributions lists internally. Everyone loved it. Thanks again for the compliments on the Zune.
