This is just for my entire friends list


You guys are all amazing people. Seriously. Things will get better.

And don't worry about disappointing people. People understand that things happen. Do what you have to do. Things will still be waiting for you when you get back.

Went to take a photo of something to send Sennet and my cell phone went "oh noes, full memory card!" Take out the card, stick it in the computer and oh wow, nearly 300 photos on that card taken from March of last year. Looking through that stack showed an interesting slide show of the last year: Photos taken from inside restaurants, yard sale finds, my brother's birthday pie fight, the inside of Judy's parents basement, Passover, showing off odd things found in stores, Shakespeare on Main street, projects in process, food being cooked, the ruins of the back yard, the guinea pigs, parking lots, "We were here" photos, shots from the inside of a moving car, relatives, family gatherings...

Cameras themselves are amazing things. A press of a button and you have a record of a moment in time that would have otherwise passed in a moment.

Digital cameras were the next step: Film was suddenly reusable and insanely cheep. One memory card could hold hundreds of photos.

Cell phone cameras meant that you always had a camera with you. With multi media texting, you could send a photo instantly to someone far away.

The ability to visual record and remember your world and share it with others, available to everyone...

It's just kind amazing.

So I ordered Judy some manga a while back. It was back ordered, so it took a while for them to even ship it. Checked the delivery confirmation today and went "Huh. It says it was delivered yesterday..."

Search the porch, nothing.


Check with next door.


Call post office. The clerk will talk to the carrier and call me back.

She does, and the carrier says he put it in our box.

Now. See. We have one of those side of the house mail boxes. It's about maybe.. an inch and a half wide and about 6 inches tall. There is no way any package could fit in that thing.

Clerk says she'll ask again, but he said that he put it in the box.

Check the porch again. The only "box" out there is the wood bench chest. Not in there. Not anywhere.

WTF, post office.

I just have to hope wherever it wound up, someone will go "Huh. This innit mine" and bring it back to the post office so they can actually deliver it here.
