[Almost] Next Day Delivery to Charlottetown!?

As detailed here, I ordered a copy of this album from Amazon.ca on Wednesday night. It arrived in the mail this morning, roughly 36 hours after I ordered it. While I expect this sort of thing is commonplace in Brooklyn, I live in Charlottetown, on the outer banks of nowhere.

I know that music on CD is all irrelevant and everything, but this is still pretty amazing logistics.

I ordered a CD a few weeks ago and, needless to say, it has NOT arrived. I will count myself lucky if the postie doesn’t steal it. Stupid Americans why do they keep ordering things like Flanders and Swann? Why don’t they order something good like ACDC? The pregnancy pants on the other hand, were a godsend.

I should say that my postal worries have nothing to do with Amazon. In fact, Amazon is probably one of the only things that does get here (here being Budapest, Hungary). Other stuff, i.e., chocolate sent by my sister, Christmas cake sent by my mother was enjoyed by some stranger en route to here. Because we are Canadians and because Canadians are Americans in the eyes of many Hungarians and because the REALLY GOOD STUFF as everyone knows comes from the good ol US of A, we don’t receive a large percentage of our mail.

My first (only) purchase from Amazon took about a day for each hour your order took.

My order for two cases of Woopass Cola! never arrived.

I’m a slow adopter — slowed further by people too much in love with their products to actually send them somewhere.
