i'm thinkin' i'll just snuff it.

took a couple of days off last weekend so's i could sit home and play with my eggbot. bought a ton of pingpong balls, (even a few orange ones to make jack-o-lanterns with my vegan eggbot), and half a dozen glass christmas balls. of course, no eggbot.

yesterday i finally got my shipping notice. oh frabjous day. calooh, callay! usps tracking showed no scans. checked again this morning. still no scans. went to work. 14 and a half hours later i crawled home and opened the mail box to find two joe tuman flyers and no 3849. that's the little pink colored slip the post office leaves to let you know they've got yr box. came upstairs and checked usps tracking again. package was delivered at 9:30 this morning.

hmmmm. waaaah.

back downstairs. something big in the parcel locker. no key in my mailbox. sob. i'm on vacation next week, but i have to work tomorrow. i may not get to meet the thing 'til tuesday, so...

i'm thinkin' i'll just snuff it.

Anonymous: feeling muuuch better, now

woke up yesterday. left a note to my carrier stuck to the box. went to work. read assembly instructions on the bus. 13 and a half hours later, dragged sorry old derriere home and, there, sitting right there in the middle of the floor was one of them big 'ol postal service flat rate boxes. had a littler box inside. performed a c-section on the sucker and held my li'l eggbot in my arms. far too weary to deal with the myriad little bits, i drifted off to sleep.
