Hi Brad,Heh. The Wall Street Journal and USA Today? Score.
I am a reporter at the Wall Street Journal and I'm doing a story on Slurpees. I happen to cover 7-Eleven, and they're about to test market a diet slurpee, which will make all of us aging, spreading baby boomers happy. Could you email or call me so I can talk to you about your wonderful Slurpee website. My number is 214-951-xxxx. You can either call collect, or call me and I'll call you right back. Or email me at Xxx.Xxxxxxxx@wsj.com.

Has it dawned on anybody that (by posting the above) you have effectively scooped the Wall Street Journal itself as well as the very reporter who is (was?) going to give you (and 7-Eleven) publicity? :-)
Hmmm... If it weren't past 3am here, I might get off my butt and register SlurpeeLight.com and/or DietSlurpee.com based on this "inside information". Yes, both are available... I'm guessing for about ten more minutes. :-) ... Lemme know who "wins" them (and when)! ;-)
