Absolutely, Positively ... in Four Days

Yes, I ordered my own set of Dooce's book from Amazon.

Yes, I pre-ordered the very same day it was listed. Months ago.

Just like I did with Harry Potter. But, unlike Harry Potter, who seems to have some kind of magical influence over Amazon and Fed Ex, my shipment is delayed.

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, though, I can track my shipment and there it is! In Houston. Where I live. Estimated delivery date Monday.

Now, are you telling me that Fed Ex can't get a truck with my little box of 10,000 Dooce books to my house before Monday?

I definitely feel a disturbance in the Force.

I'll see you in Barnes and Noble tomorrow morning then?

FedEx will learn what's truly important, if they know what's good for them.

(Yes, Fed Ex. That was a threat. A very dire one. I'm thinking about making a polite but firm phone call.)

Also: CONGRATULATIONS!

How very exciting.
