Track, Damn You! Track!

I am not sure what the difference between UPS “Ground” and “Basic” is… but I’ll tell you this.  UPS “Basic” shipping is NOT overly forthcoming with the tracking information.

The last update on my swim suits is that they left San Pablo, CA on 1/15.

Where they are now?  Who knows.  Hopefully closer to me than California!

I shall wait patiently.

No… no I shall not, I shall wait impatiently, but wait I shall.

Ordered my 1st costume for Dragon*Con 2010 today.  My friend and I are going to be Alice and the Mad Hatter.  Alice is going to have her throat cut and be covered in blood. The Mad Hatter (me) is going to have blood dripping down chin / neck / chest and be carrying around a blood-dripping tea pot and tea cup.

The costume I ordered is to the left.

Now, that skirt is crazy short, so I will be getting a black petticoat to go under it and add some length.

And I am not into having my fanny hang out, so I will switch the thigh high tights for ACTUAL tights that cover the bum-al area. (I’ll trim or tuck in those garters…  and who the hell wears garters OVER a skirt, anyway?)

But of all the costumes I saw, I loved this one’s hat the most, and the bustier is awesome.

And it will be all the more awesome with the blood!

First full contact scrimmage last night since the surgery.  It was great.  I was a bit worried at first about whether a bad fall might hurt, but when I went to hit one of the jammers and she crouched down and I basically rolled over her back and onto the floor and rolled again… And it DID hurt more than it would have used to, but certainly not enough to be worrisome… then I knew I was back and would be fine, so I am very happy with that!

UPDATE – 6 hours later…

So NOW the tracker says that my package has made it all the way from San Pablo, CA on 1/15 to, 4 days later…. SAN PABLO, CA!

Wow!  That’s some serious package progress over FOUR DAYS!

    Wowzah! I’ll pour her a cup of tea.

    And I think UPS Basic is just regular mail. No, wait, regular mail for packages has some tracking capabilities.


  2. UP S can be a little odd with their tracking, that’s for sure.

    Who wears garters over their skirt? Well, the Mad Hatter! 🙂

    That’s some crazy UPS tracking. Maybe the swimsuits are taking their time and waiting for it to warm up.

    I’m convinced that shipping companies who have different shipping options (higher priced options) store your package for a few days if you didn’t pay the higher price for quicker delivery. They don’t want people to know that it can still get there pretty quickly at the lower rate, if they allow it to happen. If they did then no one would ever pay the higher rates, it’s essentially a penalty for being cheap. I have no proof but I’m convinced that this is happening. Bastards.


  5. Shawn – it wouldn’t surprise me in the least.
