It’s Monday, but it’s my Thursday, sort of, since I worked Friday and the weekend. And I may have possibly stayed up v.late last night (::cough:: 2 am ::cough::) reading When The Lights Go On Again by seanchai and elspethdixon.

The Mystery of Mailing On November 14 (note: a Monday), a package was shipped to me. Estimated delivery: 1-3 days. I even got a handy link to track the Post Office’s progress on my box. Yay!
