The Jury Talks Back

Le sigh

I had hopped that I would be able to put up a review of Halo 3 ODST later on the 22nd, but since Amazon still has my Release-Date Shipping pre-order showing a status of “shipping soon”, I am not entirely hopeful.

I am not happy.  Had I placed a pre-order with NewEgg.com, I would have had the game a WEEK ago (god damn broken street dates).

*grumble grumble*

Update: At 1:44am I got an e-mail saying my item had shipped…

It still better get here…

This list makes no sense to me.  Shit better be here, damnit…

Update x2: Yay!  Now it still needs to hurry up and get here…  almost 4:30…  Don’t they know who I am???

  1. Are you sure it wasn’t sent via the Jimmy Carter shipping company?

  2. Scott,

    I ordered Bilstein rear shocks for my car from Summit Racing in August, and still haven’t received them. On back order, you know.

  4. Too bad you can’t spell. The word is “hoped”, not “hopped”.
    Maybe you should have listened to President Obama’s speech on education afterall. You don’t have a problem with the four-letter words though.

    [Note from Scott: Awwwwww… I have a new troll to play with. How cute. You forgot a space there between “after” and “all”, btw. If you’re going to be pedantic about my spelling (at least “hopped” is a word and wouldn’t get flagged by spell check) perhaps you should double check what you type so that it is free of errors. Just a thought.]

  5. Don’t worry, Scott – us regulars know that you meant to use the word “hopped”, as an expression of your multi-tasking grasshopper mind’s way of dealing with things that occur concurrently … so you “hopped” from your blogging here to your Internet connec tion to check on shipping to whatever else you were doing, and, while doing that, you “hopped” that you “would be able to put up a review of Halo 3 ODST later on the 22nd” …

    We all understand …

    (grin)

  7. Scott, just moon her.

  8. Damn, you got your game before I got my shocks. Guess because they are made in semi-socialistic Germany, the manufacturer never heard of keeping the customers happy and meeting their delivery commitments.

  9. Supposedly my shocks are FINALLY being shipped to my house and according to the shipper, be delivered on Saturday. I feel like I’ve been in queue for a knee replacement in Canada.

  10. When I read “hopped” I just thought you were making really tasty beer. Cascade or Haullertau?

  11. I hate you all. I just want everyone to know that.

  12. Damn, Scott! And here, coming back with the daughter from the PTA ice cream social, I was thinking that I did not have a life.

  15. I FINALLY have my Bilstein shocks!!! Now to get them on.

    Review of mods so far, my car handles so well I almost wet myself in giddyness.
