I ordered the most important part of my costume from a place in Las Vegas back on Sept. 11th. On the 27th I emailed them a note asking them about something related, and the reply said that my order had been shipped the 25th. This was obviously a lie (or at least, incorrect information) because I still have not received it. I just called them -- ON THE PHONE -- and the guy who answered was so nice that when he said that he had either sent it out two days ago, or twenty minutes ago (he didn't ask for an order number or nothin', just asked, "what did you order?"), I didn't mention the previous email. So hopefully hopefully hopefully, I will receive this very important item by Friday, so that I can go up to my parents' house and use my mom's sewing machine as I had planned. If worse comes to worst I can just borrow the thing, but I was hoping that my mom could help me out too, you know. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm an excellent sewer -- I took a sewing class in Girl Scouts when I was nine, and that was only, what, seventeen years ago? So I should be fine. But a little help couldn't hurt.
Debate tonight! I'm excited. And ready to drink.
Also, Four years ago, Alabama repealed a ban on interracial marriage, but 40 percent of the state voted in favor of the ban. I seriously don't get it. It's like I'm living in an entirely different country (century?) than these people.
