it’s a wee mixer! whee!

63456_lAin’t it cute! I’m waiting with bated breath for the arrival of my next toy – that Denon mixer over there. I’m mildly concerned though – the sound card I had shipped last week was via USPS Express International which was tracked from the moment the seller logged the item for shipment online. This time, it’s coming via USPS Priority Mail International which has markedly mixed reports around the internet.

So I think it was sent last Tuesday – and I do have a tracking number. The concerning bit is just that it’s been nearly a week now and USPS track & confirm still says “There is no record of this item.”

I hope it’s en route and it’s just that some slackers haven’t bothered to scan it. I want toys, dammit! Ah well, time will tell.

Update: So it, uh, hadn’t actually been shipped yet. That would be why there was no record of it. And here I was getting all excited it would arrive soon! I blame independence day.

shitty days and new toys

edirol_fa66_fbGod damn I had an arse day yesterday. 8 or so hours of slightly incoherent, fragmented teaching on 5 hours of sleep. I’m pretty sure there’s nothing worse than trying to teach a class when feeling confused and tired.

On the plus side, I bought the delightful Edirol FA-66 firewire soundcard you see to your right over the weekend. Now I just have to wait for it to be shipped. Toys! Oh and I bought a new wardrobe, but that’s far less exciting.

Edit: Okay, there are worse things. But it’s still pretty bad.
