    My beautiful blue thing is sitting in US customs. It's probably packed in some shipping container out in the cold where it will likely sit for the duration of Thanksgiving and who knows how much longer. I are sad.

    Winter is coming - in northern Finland they had -28,5 centigrades this morning - that is cold enough to turn the thing blue unless you wear decent underwear.

    Don't feel bad GAD, My "Thing" has officially been "Delayed in Transit" and they have not designated a new delivery date. No one's fault but it seems we are both playing the Waiting game now.
