Things & Stuff

I'll be shipping the package to Australia today. I got the postage online, printed everything, I have a tracking number...and I'm still a bit nervous.
This is the biggest international shipment I've ever done. I just want it to go right. Then again, the buyer has a 100% feedback rating, so I'm hopeful.
Went to the grocery store last night. Since I'm a regular at this Albertsons, the clerks know me and usually wave when I come in.
I got what I wanted and went to the register. Daniel commented on my speed - I had been there for less than ten minutes but I had a full basket of groceries.
I said, "Well, I know what I like...and if it's on sale, I like it even more."
And everyone laughed - Daniel, grocery bagger Mike, and the two other people in line.
As Mike bagged my purchases, he told me he approved of my purchase of Cap'n Crunch (I know I shouldn't have that much sugar, but I don't have it very often - and it was on sale).
I couldn't resist. I just couldn't.
I told him, "Well, see - I don't drink."
He looked a little confused.
I continued, "But I always wanted to say that...I've got a little Cap'n in me."
And everyone laughed again.
It was a good way to end the night.
Then the first storm of the season hit. It rained whil I was sleeping.
When I woke up, the sun was out (kinda) and things were dry (kinda).
Congratulations to the commenter in yesterday's post - that is indeed the song I was thinking of.
Oh, and did you know that it's the theme to a Japanese TV series?
It's bad enough that I'm on Twitter (evidently not enough people know I'm there, because they're still in business). I check it regularly when I'm online. I don't always tweet, but there are occasional updates to my day.
But Facebook...damn, when you pull shit like this, you're hooked.
So now, according to DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse, if you criticize President Obama's receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, you're siding with the terrorists.
I guess the "racist" label doesn't work anymore.
Okay. I need to get to the PO to ship this beast. Wish me luck.
Be seeing you.
