Well, it’s going on damn near a week since I finally ordered my Sirius radio, directly from their online shop, and I still haven’t heard boo. My order status has been set to “checked-out” since last Friday, but I’ve received no shipping confirmation.
I decided to order directly from Sirius because every retail outlet that I checked were sold out the day after Christmas… I guess a lot of us didn’t get what we wanted under the tree, (I’m looking at you, mom).
And, I’m convinced their customer service representatives’ job is to blatantly lie to their customers, in order to cover up deficiencies in order fulfillment. When I called up the hotline, the man on the other end couldn’t tell me anything more than the web site could, however he added that I would “probably get the shipping confirmation in a day or two”… when I asked him how he knew this, he replied that it usually takes 4-5 days to ship. Nevermind that Howard Stern is going on-air next monday! (I suspect that they are back-ordered.)
Of course, considering that every retail outlet (both online and traditional) are sold out of this model, I’m not crossing my fingers. Good thing I paid extra for Overnight shipping!
Happy Holidays, from Google. If you search for certain end-of-the year holidays, you get festive borders on the Google results page, (look between the results and text ads)
Are there more?

Everything looks more beautiful tonight.
I feel a bit guilty claiming this was for charity, since all we did was drink heavily, over and 8-hour day, in a pack of Santa-hat wearing revelers… but, we did had a lot of fun with Jason, Kim, Casey, Jess, and the rest of the pack. Thanks to Autumn, for organizing.

Sedaris began work in December of 1992 as one of Santa’s elves in the Manhattan Macy’s “SantaLand” department. After observing fisticuffs between mothers in line with their rambunctious progeny awaiting their turn to sit in the lap of a lecherous, drunken Santa, Sedaris penned the “SantaLand Diaries.”
