Anticipation

Yesterday was the last day of the fourth deadline at which Amazon promised to send me a CD I ordered back in February ("available in 2-5 weeks"). Let's see if they cancel the order this time or if they make the fifth promise to send it to me in yet another 2-5 weeks.

You see me shiver with antici--

pation.

You ordered the Rocky Horror Picture Show - Soundtrack?

Definitely put this item on your Amazon wishlist. That should make it come somehow.Odds are about four out of five you'll have two of them soon.

No, it's Chet Baker's _You Can't Go Home Again_, which presumably translates as "you'll never arrive at my home, ever". Funny enough, Amazon.com has it in stock and promises to ship it within 24 hours, but Amazon.de has been unable to get hold of it since 4 February, which is fairly impressive.

I had the Rocky Horror soundtrack on vinyl what seems like a long time (20 years) ago, but it got warped during a particularly hot summer, and I didn't care enough about it to ever replace it.

They actually shipped it. They waited another three days, and then they actually shipped it. I'm impressed.

Horst said on June 14, 2006 12:27 AM:

It arrived today. I can hardly believe it.
