There's no one to confide ...

Now, don't quote me on this but I think the hot weather might have passed. We had some major fog this morning. I couldn't see across the street for the bulk of the morning. I've had to wear pants for the past few days. I love it.

Speaking of this morning, I went to take the dogs for their morning walk at 5:30 and I had an Amazon box sitting on the doorstep. Now, I highly doubt that the delivery guys were out and about at 5:30 in the morning and I know the box wasn't there when I took the dogs out at 7:30 last night ... so was it delivered after 8 or was it delivered to the wrong house and one of my neighbors dropped it off? That is the eternal question.

Random Blogger story: My book review blog is set up on Blogger and there was a notice on the site that image uploading would be disabled for 2 hours starting at 5 PM today. I, quite naturally, freak out about this and write up all of today's posts in draft because, holy shit!, what if I'm ready to prepare them between 5 and 7 and I can't?!?!

Yeah, so all my posts were composed before 10 this morning. They weren't all posted at once, but they were ready to go.

So, books.
Book #222 - Tarnished Knight: Grimm's Circle #4 by Shiloh Walker - This was the book I received from the author yesterday. I stayed up until 12:30 last night to finish it but I was way too tired to actually write up a coherent review afterward. So I did it this morning. I loved the book, sent the review to the author and I'm feeling pretty good about myself.
Book #223 - Her Fallen Angel (Her Angel #2) by Felicity Heaton - I actually finished this book a day or two ago but I wanted to post a teaser quote from it for Teaser Tuesday so I held off on reviewing it. Angels. Who are fallen. Nice.

30 days of books... Day 38 - High fantasy! Boo-yah!

Okay. I'm determined to get through this round of editing before NaNo starts. De.Ter.Mined. Watch me.
And on that note, I'm going to go.

just check the tracking, then you'll know...

Good call. It says they delivered it yesterday at 9:30 in the morning. They're liars.

are they liars? or was the parcel delivered to a different door at 9:30am, and that person brought it by after 7:30pm? i'm going with second option.

Do not side with those miscreants! They said it was delivered to me at 9:30. I did not receive it. They are liars.

Actually, this isn't the first issue I've had with this delivery company saying that they delivered something on their tracking page and then not actually delivering it for another day or so. So, I'm really not sure if they just delivered it super early or super late the night before or to the wrong house in general.

Haha, because my dad works for ups, I always hear his side of the story and tend to 'defend' him, even though he didn't deliver the package.

You know what sounds good? Hot buttered rums

I've never had a problem with UPS deliveries, it's this other company Amazon sometimes uses called OnTrac. I've had three or four separate occasions where they said they delivered something and I didn't actually receive it until the following day. When I contacted Amazon to find out where my package was I was told that sometimes packages were scanned in error showing they'd been delivered. Umm, okay. Except that it's happened more than once and after the first time it's either extreme sloppiness or there's a problem with the software they use or they need to train their people better.

You know what I'm saying?

What was in the fucking box?

BOOKS! Lots and lots of books! Do you see why I was so worried about it? Do you?
