At least, one eBay vendor thinks I am.
As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been indulging in a bit of online retail therapy lately. One of the (too many) things I’ve ordered was a set of yarn snips which was (according to the listing*) probably small enough to fit in the largest of my Lantern Moon notions pouches. I got an email with a tracking number so I started tracking the package. The snips cost about $4, by the way, including shipping, so obviously this must be a high stakes issue, right? (Or maybe I just have too much time on my hands and am a total information junkie.)
I got some odd text messages about it:
There was more detailed information including time stamps on the USPS tracking web page which I found puzzling. (Did I mention that I must have too much time on my hands?) Yesterday, when my poor overworked mail carrier dropped off the yarn from Cast-Off chemo (which is totally yummy, by the way):
I asked him about the other package. Tracking said it had been out for delivery several times, but neither he nor I had seen it. He agreed it was strange, and suggested I call the post office. So I phoned the office at 21044 The postal worker hummed while she was logging into the system (I told her she was giving me personalized hold music) and then got very confused, and went to speak to her supervisor (the system didn’t give me any hold music at all, just periodic buzzing…) and then came back and explained what the issue was.
She said the package was addressed to USA, 21045, and nothing else.
I gave her my name and address again. We’ll see if it actually gets here Monday or not…
The Ravelry Shop will have been up for a full week tomorrow. The fish pattern had four downloads on the first day (including my own ‘trial’ download) and two since.
Now to publish the Vexing socks, edited to acknowledge the testers, and give it a promo code, which I will publish here. I will have that done by Sunday, 25 October.
