Random Observation

Posted 2010.02.28 12.19 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

If we gathered up lots and lots of pocket lint, bellybutton lint, and dryer lint, we could build it into a big huge pile. Then we could get a couple elephants and coat them in glue, and then roll them around in our huge lint pile. When we were finished, they’d be all colourful and fuzzy I think. But they still wouldn’t be wooly mamoths.

Even if they aren’t wooly mamoths, I think we should do it anyways because big fuzzy colourful elephants would be kind of fun.

Plus, we could tell kids that they were really wooly mamoths after all, and they’d probably believe us, at least for a little while.

It’s important for children to have plenty of opportunities to learn things.

Terminated with Extreme Contrition

It never seems to fail. Stuff gets me all frustrated and angry and it builds up and builds up and builds up until finaly I snap (technical term is “Twang”, as in, the sound a piano string makes when it is wound too tight and finaly breaks).

So yesterday I cut loose with a big ranting rage-a-thon, my ire directed at Canada Post. They keep not delivering some stuff I ordered weeks ago.

Well what do I find out now? The folks who I ordered it from, the folks who last week told me it was shipped and the delay was probaby with Canada Customs…they tell me in fact they haven’t shipped it, it’s on backorder, they don’t know when it will ship, they can’t even tell me when they will know, for another week!

Some new ranting rage building there. Anyhow, so it’s not Canada Post’s fault (this time) and now I feel bad about the big explody ranttastic post, so I’ve removed it. Maybe later I’ll have a big explody rant-a-thon about lying liars who lie about shipments.

Dang It!

So my elephants never showed up on Friday. No mail at all. I know Monday was a holiday but that’s no excuse for the rest of the week! The only mail I got all week long was some junk-mail on Tuesday and on Thursday.

It’s a conspiracy, I tells ya! I want my stuff! I’m frustrated and impatient without my stuff!

I want to order more stuff, but I don’t like having too much stuff outstanding so I can’t order more stuff till I get the stuff that’s already on order.

Dang it.

Where’s My Elephant?!

I hate waiting for parcels and packages. I went a little e-bay happy last week and now I’m waiting on 4 parcels from 4 different vendors. I know for sure two of them were shipped right away, I know one of them usually ships really fast, and I ought to have received at least two of these packages by now.

So here I am, frustrated and impatient, wondering where’s my stuff. Getting cross with the mailman every time he doesn’t show up with the goods. Getting impatient with everyone who walks by or drives by because they’re not the mailman bringing me my stuff. Hey! You’re not the mailman!

And the refrain starts up in my mind, Where’s my elephant? Where’s my elephant? Where’s my elephant?

Dude, Where’s My Elephant?!
