d’oh & dadgummit- slight hiccup with Calendar shipment

Today I realized I’d never sent Jill (Ms. August 2008, and our very own artist-in-residence)  her calendar, so I just now popped over to the post office near my house to send it out.  As soon as I walked in, awesome mailchick Carroll, who (thankfully) knows me by sight, shouted “Finally!”

Sweet Darwin’s Beagle!  It turns out when I brought the calendars in for shipping on Saturday, there was a problem, and none of them were shipped.  The Skepchick Post Office Box (which is physically located in Boston) was the return address, so instead of sending 300 envelopes there (with postage due) she just held them back in hopes of seeing me or the.real.boy soon.  (the.real.boy works from home and, presumably, posts things with some frequency.) 

So, short story long, the calendars did not ship on Saturday as I’d hope, but rather will ship out today.  My very sincere apologies, and free smooches for everyone inconvienced by the delay. Please feel free to slime me in the comments if you must.

  1. You’re fired!

    No, wait . . . I’m cutting your pay by 75%!

    Or . . . I guess what I mean is, can you give that postal worker a giant hug for me? And, it’s cool, we all do silly things every now and again. You should have seen some of the major eff-ups I went through on the first two calendars.

  2. Please feel free to slime me in the comments if you must.

    You should be careful throwing around phrases like that… especially when you know I’ll be hanging around. ;)

  3. Cool. I was just about to shoot you an email asking if it was only me who had not received a calendar. It IS July, after all.

    Still, if The Hotty JainieBelle can forgive you, who am I to hold a grudge? :)

  4. Yet another advantage of attending TAM: having your calendars AND getting them signed too.

    Although, in all fairness, even those calendars had a hard time finding their way through the mail to where they had to go …

  5. “Also forgiven, Briarking. “The Hotty” didn’t hurt in my decision process.”

    Regardless of not knowing what you really look like, just your posts and your Cinderella story make you “The Hotty.” ;)

  6. I have, today, in my possession, four, yes count them four, Skeptical calendars, two of which feature nekkid SkepDudes and two of which feature nekkid SkepChicks.

    They are chock full of Skeptical goodness, and quotes and minibios, and OH YEAH! NEKKID SKEPTICAL PEOPLE!

    Thank you.

    (Did I mention the nekkid people in them?)
