Wednesday. Haven't gotten an email about my amazon order being shipped yet but they went ahead and charged me yesterday for it. Hoping it's in the mail and I haven't gotten a notification. I mean I guess it did say Fri-Mon on my last update, but I swear one originally said Thurs.

Kia - Is there anything you can take for your headache?

Johnnie - Thanks for the new thread. As Tracey said, I've found Amazon pretty good for updating delivery dates. Maybe check the order on your Amazon account?

Tracey - do you feel older and wiser today?

Dave, Sarah

Chris... I saw my sister at Christmas.... nobody told me she was in town...so I didn't get her anything... and she got me a Movie gift card. She told me "you can take me out to lunch" last Christmas. She's back in town... so we're going to lunch. This Christmas I'll be ready.....with a gift for her too.... I'm pretty sure she'll be in town.

Chris - I am reluctant since I am already on so many meds but it seems to get better slowly with ice packs on my neck... I can move around a bit already
I hate it when my body works against me like that

Dave - have fun with your sister! I love meeting up with my brothers

Tracey - sorry I missed your birthday. I hope you had a lovely day!!!

I checked it on Amazon last night and its still listed that I can make changes or cancel, though it looks like they charged my card pretty much as soon as the order was placed. Just getting impatient as I kind of wanted it to get here before the weekend, didn't want to come down to work on the weekend to pick up packages when I have no idea if it arrived.

I noticed a "Stupidity" mistake on Wizards of Waverly Place when I was researching the second episode last night... the whole episode makes a big deal about recreating a sandwich that Max made when the guy who mentioned it left his sandwich on the table when he left... they could have easily seen what was on it... Granted they didn't know Max wouldn't know how to make another, they could have figured it out before he got home. Instead they use magic shenanigans and it doesn't work out for them in the end.

I find that orders are always charged ASAP and not the "when it ships" as it's suppose to be

I guess that's possible, I don't normally go and check if it's been charged usually... Granted it's usually sent out quicker. I ordered it around midnight or so Monday night... so technically Tuesday and it hasn't been sent out yet. Starting to think I won't get it for Friday. If I knew it was gonna be the weekend I would have had it sent to my apartment instead, though apparently Monday is a possibility listed for at least one of the things I ordered, which I swear originally said Thurs.

Johnnie...I hope you can get the computer you want soon.... I won't pay any more than 300 for a new computer ...space and speed of the computer ISN'T the issue for me.... it's the same problem you have.... very slow video on some sites...but that's due to FireFox Flash player AND my crappy 5 MBPS speed DVD-R and my other CD drive work fine thank goodness.
