Hello Kitty Run registration 'cat'-astrophe
First, the species confusion over Hello Kitty, and now this.
Online registration opened at noon today for the Hello Kitty Run and the server wasn't up to scratch.
This was the message that people got:
Registration was temporarily suspended until 2pm.
At about 4pm, this was posted on the Hello Kitty Run Facebook page:
Hello, more frustration.
The claws came out.
I'm happy because I managed to get one of the 15,000 pre-registration slots before they were all lapped up, allowing me to register last week with no problem.
The T-shirt is sooooooo cute!
Of course, I'm only joining the run ironically.
UPDATE: Hello, rain: Downpour dampens Hello Kitty Run
