My new Large cafe Bag arrived with the accessories I ordered! It's gorgeous (cocoa/wasabi). I will post pics over spring break. :)
I have a replacement Imago pending, somewhere in a truck between the Seattle and the Rust Belt... the anticipation is killing me!
it's almost here... yay!
My Smart Alec (steel/solar), Western Flyer (Crimson/steel) and packing cubes (solar) are currently winging their way to Sydney via Honolulu. I'm too excited for words!! Hopefully they'll be delivered on Monday ready for a 5 night trip to Melbourne starting Tuesday.
I've been tracking the progress of the UPS parcel here:
The logistics engineer within is *loving* this.
Just ordered my Smart Alec with Freudian Slip and a Side Effect :)
Had to send my Cafe Bag for repairs though; hopefully it made it to the factory intact...
the RSS feed works great! thanks!
For those of you using Macs, there's a widget available for Dashboard called Delivery Status that tracks packages as well.
Thanks for passing along the Boxoh link, notmensa! It was actually updated before the UPS website a few times! (When my husband saw that my Swift arrived, he commented, "Oh, so THAT's what you were obsessively tracking... looks like it's worth it!")
I am having another outbreak of Tom Bihn Anticipation Syndrome! :D
I placed my order for an additional wallet (my current one - a gift from TB and Crew - is still going strong, this new one is to handle stuff I add when I travel so it will be clip-and-go easy), a medium padded pouch, a guardian light, 2 packs of strapeez and both kinds of stickers. Last but not least is the cornerstone of this order, my new Super Ego with Q-AM strap! :D
Tracking data can't come too soon! hehe I have the delightful, giddy feeling of presents-o-coming like Christmas Day. YES! Visions of Bihn boxes dance in my head, as I drift into dreaming I think I hear said:
'Twere the night before Bihn Goods, when all through the house,
The laptop was stirring, whilst moving a mouse;
The tracking was wrung on the laptop with care,
In hopes that a Bihn Box soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Synapses danced in their heads;
And mamma with Imago, and I with Café,
Had just settled down for the ship-tracking olé,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a panel truck lovely and brown, and eight boxes so dear,
Bringing gilt even better than Macy*s,
I knew the truck must be one of Casey's.
More rapid than eagles his boxes they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, Synapse! now, Ego! now, Id and Ristretto!
On, Café! on Zephyr! on, Buzz and Super Ego!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the boxes they flew,
With the truck full of bags, and Good Casey too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
Bouncing and banging of each boxes oomph.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney Good Casey came with a bound.
He was dressed all in hemp, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A pallet of boxes he flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His fish -- how they twinkled! Bert and Ernie - how merry!
Watching foreign movies on Netflix - laughing red like a cherry!
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the orders; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
He sprang to his truck, to his Mac gave a whistle,
And away Casey flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Bihn Bags to all, and to all a good-night."
Wow, the boxoh.com site lets me add an RSS live bookmark to track my package. How very cool! Tnx notmensa! :D
