December 6, 2006 - General Memo
Package Delivered? Update?
I’ll preface this comment with a warning - it’s riddled with folly - that, and I make shameless plugs for packages. Consider yourself warned.
There is no reason that I should be as enamored with tracking systems as I am, but boy do I find it fun to keep tabs on packages. That and I can watch my Christmas presents slowly wind their way across the earth.
Speaking of such thing, my address is over there on the left. A scorned Chinese teacher can be a terrible force to reckon with…
Without further ado I present:
Tilly the Wonderous World Traveling Baoguo1

Tilly merrily jingles through the Holland Tunnel. NJ ho!

Careful in the armpit, we wouldn’t want a premature delivery to Hackensack or Orange or somewhere out there.

Brave Tilly manages to rip through the space & time continuum. She has performed the unimaginable. Leaving Loisville twice, presumably to meet up with her slower self somewhere midair between here and who knows where. Bring a slugger with you - baseball could use a pick-me-up here in Guyuan.

Doing a rough guesstimate, I’d say our adventurer has gone about a third of the way in just over 24 hours. Too bad this will be the quick third.

Poor Tilly! A second X-Ray! Somebody must have snuck some contraband on board… That or UPS is lying and trying to scheme their way out of delivery.

Tilly’s making headway. I’m just hoping she doesn’t decide to take a detour and visit the Terracotta Warriors. They’re overrated Tilly, overrated!!
12/09, 5:50 P.M., Delivery
Delivery?!?! What? No package here! I’m hoping that this is a joke.
Ha! UPS you’re so funny. You got me!
Umm. Where’s Tilly?
So glad that the package is providing such entertainment for you. Hope that it's ultimate arrival is just as exciting...
don't open until 12/25 or else...
or else you'll have to mess w santa!
That sounds like a threat from Santa!
Who knew he was so vindictive...
