Say It. I Dare You.

I ordered something and selected a shipping option that would have the package at my place by next Tuesday at the earliest. Instead, it got there overnight -- today, which would've been fine, except I'm out of town and won't be back until Friday afternoon or night.

UPS left the package outside, on the concrete slab in front of my door. You know, exposed to the wind and snow. I've seen packages blown all over the place near my apartment -- SO has fetched them for other people and put them back by the right door -- and if mine ends up in the canal behind my apartment, I'm going to be PISSED. It weighs a pound, so there's really no way it's going to stay put till Friday night.

I called UPS to ask why they wouldn't leave something in the office instead of outside in the elements, and they said if there's no signature requirement, it's left at the door. Now here's the thing: Even if a package requires a signature, and I've gotten some that did, the driver never rings the bell, just leaves it. In the rain. UPS said that if the package blows away and I never see it again, it's not their responsibility.

I left a message on the office's answering machine. Maybe someone will have time to go track it down for me tomorrow.

I don't know why they don't operate the same way elsewhere.

They leave stuff outside here, too (the midwest).

My take on Toddlers and Tiaras: those kids are crazy!! Their moms are crazy!! Danielle is either totally phony and mugging for the camera or she's the most arrogant kid I've ever seen. She's not that cute or talented and she needs new eyebrows. She probably has no friends and she'll have some sort of breakdown by the time she's 15.

Four year old Makenzie cracked me up. I'd probably go nuts if I were her mother. But for some reason I think she'll grow out of her personality.

Mom with the seven kids and the rich husband, you're pathetic. Spending $250,000 on your twin 1 yo daughters is obscene. They can't walk, talk or do much of anything but cry. How they won anything, including the grand prize, is beyond me.

Lastly, this is the second ep I've seen. In both eps, their coverage of any kid with brown skin lasted maybe a nanosecond.

This is the first time I'm aware of agreeing with a conservative talk show host.

ETA: Ninja, is it Tucker Carlson's comment you are agreeing with...the statement where Carlson said Vick should have been executed for his crime?

News is dead.

They are showing kitten and baby videos from youtube now ON THE NEWS.. that is not reporting. I think they breed these talking head we-all-look-alike hosts in some kind of matrix-like plastic people hatchery, because they obviously have no sense of their own and just do what they're programmed to do.

Bekka, where have you been? They all go to News-Dummy school to learn proper hair spray and weird enunciation techniques.

Deary, where have you been? Of course they're not human. They're like the creatures in "Westworld."

Do try to keep up.

In other news, I cheated death the other day.. a pizza delivery driver hit my bike while I was riding home from work. I fell on my face, busted my nose and have a black eye, but I'm alive.. I could have been blinded, had my brains splattered all over the road or worse.

So HA Death, you missed!

UPS most certainly leaves stuff outside and there have been times when they did not bother to even ring the bell. LadyV69, they always just leave stuff.
The best was a couple of months ago when I got home to find the package that contained my new coat with a letter from my mother on top telling me to call UPS and b*tch them out because my coat was found by our downstairs neighbor --- in the recycling bin. Yes, my brand new ($450) coat was in the garbage. Either UPS put it there, or they left it by the door or basement entrance and someone put it in the bin.

Damn it, iTunes, I want Paula Toller's Nada Por Mim!
YouTube - Paula Toller - Nada Por Mim - Versão DVD NOSSO
Don't make me have to go searching for a costly import CD!
On the other hand, at least you had Lenine's Martelo Bigorna and Nana Caymmi's Não Se Esqueça de Mim.

Ooh, I'm glad you liked it, misspam. Heh, I don't always understand every single word (yet), but I still love Brazilian music. I maintain that Portuguese is the most beautiful and melodic of all the romance languages. And there really are some amazing vocalists in Brazil.
I've been listening to Não Se Esqueça de Mim a lot lately. So beautiful.

iTunes likes to tease me. They have one album by Skank, but not the one with this song:
YouTube - Skank - Resposta HD 1080p HDTV Widescreen
The Spanish version they did:
YouTube - Skank - La Respuesta

I used to date a Brazilian. I was always trying to imitate that nasal sound they make.
