Verizon Rep Loves Clay!

We found this really cute story from the CB's Claydreamer03. (FYI: I am working on the website with Claydreamer... check it out!)

I just got off the phone with Verizon Wireless.. my bill was a little "steep" and HE was working with me trying to see how I could lower my payments.. I was checking out my new website that I am working on while talking to him.. and as you enter it.. it starts playing.. IWCY..!!! LOUD.. I am like..."Oops, sorry about that..!" He said.. "Oh, thats okay, I love that song!" I said.."really, you know Clay?" He said, "Of course.. he is a very talented young man! I also read his book.. I was surprised to see all that coming from such a 'young man'...!!!!" I was so excited... He said.. "I keep checking to see when his new CD will be out..!!" I told him it looks like it will be sometime in May.." He was very happy to hear that... He knew all about Clays organizations and that he was a Unicef Embassador..!

OMG.. I am going to work, wasn't too happy about that.. BUT I AM SMILING NOW!!! This just MADE MY DAY!!!

Have a good day!

"absolutely" claydreamer

****EDITED TO UPDATE 03-01-06!!****

I was still having some trouble removing a game that was put on my husbands cell phone.. So, I had to go into the actual Verizon Store.. A young man came to up to help me and as we were going over.. (again).. what I had on my phone. He reminded me I was paying .99 per month for ring back tones.. (which are what people here instead of rings when they are calling me) Anyway.. I told him that I knew that and that I wanted to know WHEN were they going to get CLAY AIKEN ringbacks..??? He looked at me and said.. "OH, So you want people to hear INVISIBLE..HUH?" I told him.. "Wow, so you know Clay Aiken..huh? He said.. "OF COURSE!!" I was pleasantly say the least.. Twice now at Verizon, there has been someone who mentioned something positive about Clay..!! I told him I would go home and tell everyone at the board to go to Verizon because they definately hire VERY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE!!! He smiled and said.. "THANKS!" (But he still doesn't know when they will get Clay on ring backs.. )

Clay in Vancouver in 2010? NPR Radio Mention

There was a cute mention on NPR's talk show "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" last Sunday. The topic for that show was predictions for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games and the first question to the 'panel' was: "What will they do to make the 2010 Vancouver Olympics more interesting?"

Panelist Mo Rocco's prediction, referring to AI's incredibily high ratings and a figure skater at the Turin games who made a quadruple lutz and didn't make the cut, was:

Olympic Skaters Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia Barrino and Clay Aiken all compete for the Gold, but the highlight will be Ruben Studdard's Quadruple Lutz !

You can listen to this on NPR's website (scroll down and click on "Panalist Predictions"), runs 2:04.

Thanks to nJOYclayFL for the heads up!

Also, in talking about the show, "American Idol", here is what Dean at Lycos had to say about Clay, "Now that the music competition has begun in earnest we expect that the show that brought us Clay Aiken (#18) will try to catch lightning in a bottle and discover the next singing sensation."

Click here: MSNBC to go to the website. Follow these steps:

Step #1 – To the right of Clay's picture is a gray area with a "Move Up" button. Click it and it will move Clay up one step. Keep clicking it until he is up to the #1 spot where he belongs!!!!

Step #2 – Click the "Done" button which is at the bottom of all the pictures. You MUST click this button for your selection to count.

Step #3 - A box will come up that asks you if this is the order you want the 5 celebrities to be in. Make sure Clay is at #1 and click "Yes".

Clay Made "It" -- Keep Voting EVERYDAY!

Horrah! Clay made MSNBC's hot "It" list, entering at #5. Last week, MSNBC asked users which former Idol contestant deserved to be on the list.

Now that he's on it, it's our duty to keep him on the list. Please head on over to to vote for Clay everyday this week by dragging Clay's photo from #5 to #1 and then scrolling down to click "Done".

MSNBC posted this awesome summary about Clay on the list:

With "American Idol" trouncing the Olympics and all other comers in the ratings, it's no suprise that the most popular "Idol" contestant in the show's history made out "It" list. The question is: Now that he's on it, will we ever be able to get him off. Claymates, do your worst!
