Any reaction to True Blood, Deb? Your eerie silence reminds me of your reaction to Michelangeli's Chopin Mazurkas. Will I have to give you your money back?


I haven't received it yet.

Actually, I thought just now as I picked up my mail that I need to call the Post Office to see if YET AGAIN thay have tried to deliver and not left the little white card that says they couldn't get the parcel through the hole, so it is waiting for me at the Post Office I cannot access, and I have to go through the usual shenanigans to get them to send it elsewhere.

It's hard to know when to start badgering them.

@farmerman,
I have to confess I do too.

I can't afford to download right now, though, even if it is available in Oz.

It's all too warm and kooky for you, isn't it?


You tough physicist, you.

Trueblood arrived in the post today!!!!


Thanks to you, really, Thomas.

When you asked, I thought that it really should have arived. I checked the post office...no.

So...something made me check my account with the company I bought it from.

Sure enough.......although I had received previous goods from them with no trouble, when I looked, they had done some sort account keeping overhaul.

In my case, this turned my address into incomprehensible gibberish.

I tried to correct the mix-up, but the site wouldn't allow it.

So I emailed them to let them know:

a. The address now attributed to my account was now gibberish.

b. I was unable to correct said gibberish.

c. The package was about to be returned.

d. Here was the address I had given them, and which was, in fact my address, and could they please:

i. Send the package to my actual address when it was returned.

ii. Correct the gibberish their new system had made of my address so future packages would arrive without any major detours.


They emailed me back, clearly without reading my email, telling me what my address was in gibberish and saying the package would shortly arrive at said gibberish.

I responded with a somewhat heated email suggesting in future that their support staff would do well to read customer emails instead of whatever they had done with mine, and reiterating what I had said in the previous email, but with some capital letters.

I received back a somewhat abashed email noting that the package had, indeed, been returned because the address was gibberish, and that they had done as I asked in both of my emails, and that they had re-dispatched the package to the original and reiterated address.


And HERE IT IS!!!!!


Now to actually LOOK at it.


Are you trembling yet, Thomas?

@dlowan,
Oh no! I totally missed the post about your postal adventures, and that I was supposed to tremble. But since you downloaded season 2 in the meantime, I take it you liked season 1.

@Thomas,
I thought your tremulousness was implied in the "eerie" bit of the silence.

@dlowan,
Good observation. I'm shy, and I do tremble easily.

Cool.

I like easily menaced men.

Especially physicists.

They can get above themselves.

Our status as prey animals means we have to be a little surly.

We're kind of soft and cuddly under the bark (and occasional bite) though.

Not just under the bark, within the sandwich bun, too. You are quite soft and tender there. So I really can't complain overall.

@Thomas,
Speaking of tender bunnies, the new season of Californication has started in October. Am I the only one who thinks Charlie Runkle's new boss is a little implausible?

It's probably just hiding behind a place where Australians can't find it.
