I remember with some e-mail clients I used to use, certain smiley faces would come through as random letters instead of actually showing the face.

Yes, I've seen that too. A random "J" at the end of a sentence is frequently a smilie.

Talking Curious on contacting winner

Does anyone know what to watch for when contacting winner? We seldom answer numbers we do not recognize. (My husband received a call from a North LA number but didn't answer)


I know it is wishful thinking but... hey, nothing wrong with having hope!

We got an e-mail first and then a phone call from 212 area code.

Not a darn clue but, the smiley faces sounds like a reasonable explanation to me.

I'm confused though...one winner says they were notified on Jan 17 and they were told they had won for Jan 10. Another winner says she was notified Jan 27 and it seems that she won for Jan 1. I do not doubt anyone's dates. Just trying to make some sense of all this and figure out where we might in terms of days/notifications going out??

Maybe the Jan 1 winner turned out to be ineligible for some reason so they picked a new winner??

I've seen this happen a lot. I think it has something to do with whether your email is html or plain text. I guess it could be a typo and they meant to put the number 1 and then another number...but if there was a space between the two I'd think it was meant to be a smiley face emoticon that didn't come through just because I've had that happen to me a lot.

I was thinking the same thing!! Maybe they notified people in batches (January 1 and 17 are the only dates we've been given right? That's a bog batch though) or maybe you're right that the winner from January 1 never got back in touch with them or got disqualified or something??
