Pens and a DVD

:note: Killswitch Engage – “And Embers Rise”

I received my glorious pens in the mail today. They were from Office Depot by way of Amazon.com, and I was surprised to see that they were packaged horribly. You know the little cardboard boxes that pens come in, in packs of 12? They threw that flimsy cardboard box into a plastic shipping bag. The kind that Victoria’s Secret or Old Navy uses… Just a plastic thing. Quite unlike the at least semi-structured “padded mailer” you can by for .84 cents at any discount store. So my box of pens came open at both ends with the box nearly flattened. Fortunately, the pens were just fine, but still. For paying $5 for shipping, I expected a bit more effort.

OMG OMG OMG I just found out last night that Type O Negative is releasing another DVD! Eeeee! :loveeye: I MUST HAVE IT. I can’t believe I’ll have to wait until the end of March for it though. But yay! *does a dance*

My C++ homework is still going terribly. There are two good things that came out of this:

  1. Since he realized the homework was nearly impossible, it is not due until next Friday and will be turned in with the homework for this week.
  2. Homework for this week is merely an addendum to last week’s. This means that had you actually finished the assignment, you will now have to delete most of it to do the addendum. However, if you are me, and didn’t really do much of the first assignment, you can start right off with the addendum and not have to waste time and effort.

Err, let’s pretend I have lots to talk about even though I don’t.

    I made my first ever order on Amazon today… I ordered the Post Secret book, so I am hoping that it comes better packaged.

    Good luck with the homework.

    Ooh, I love PostSecret, that book is on my wishlist. And if you order directly from Amazon, they package things beautifully. This was through Office Depot, and they sort of sucked.
