Hold Music

A company that plays Depeche Mode's Violator in order while I sit on hold is a company I plan on doing business with again.

aaah!

Hold Music Be Damned

However, a company that does not ship my order when they say it will because when it was ready to ship they were "couldn't find a unit" is a company I will not be doing business with again.

Bubble: Burst.

I'm going to dwell on this no-unit-shipping bullshit a little while longer. This burst my whole goddamn bubble. I ordered a blender online and had it shipped to Dale's so we could make our own margaritas. I bought margarita glasses for it. I thought it would be so fun and funny to have this blender show up at her house. Now it's not going to. I don't want to bring one because it's going to be a pain in the ass. Dale says K-mart esque stores are hard to come by where she is. This ruins my whole gag, AND it ruins my tiny little fantasy of firing up a fresh goddamn margarita as soon as I arrive.

I guess I know now how people used to feel when they had to deal with musicmaker.

I swear I'll stop bitching about this now.

This is what I get for trying to save a few bucks and going thru a site I've never heard of. I have since ordered a new blender from Target and upped the shipping speed. Granted, I never *did* find out how much those other guys were going to charge me for shipping, so it may not be that much more expensive. I'm just mad at myself because I know if I had bought it from Target in the first place, there would be a blender at Dale's house right now.

What is up with today?

Shit and fans seem to be coming together at an astronomical rate. During a five minute walk to and from the post office, I saw six firetrucks zoom up the street.

For those of you who missed it

Mighty Big TV, a.k.a. Television Without Pity, has posted a recap of the most recent Osbournes episode. Unfortunately, for a guy whose job it is to recap television episodes, he sure has trouble understanding what the Ozzy family is saying. But all in all it's a stellar read.

2 hours left at work and bored out of my mind.

Tick, tick, tick

Since my mother is staying at my place for one of the weekends I'll be gone, I left spares of my keys with my brother, and the only main building key I have. I figured I'd be savvy enough to get in when I return but my mother will need the most direct and panic-free route possible.

However, panic struck on my end when I went to go put in my sheets to wash and remembered that it is the main building key that opens the laundry room. Thanks to a sweatpant-clad marine, I was able to get in and put them in the wash. He was walking in again as I went to go switch them to the dryer and I noticed he was putting his stuff in the dryer too so he'll be back at the time I need to get in again.

The military does so much for us. God Bless America.
