    Got about a quarter of the books shipped this morning before the post office closed. Rest will be sent early this week....the old lady at the local post office is not liking me. Takes her about 5 minutes a book....but when you walk in with a couple hundred....well....looks like I'll be spending several hours with her this week :rofl

    give her a :smooch for me and tell her to get off her ass and get to work. This is important stuff, damn it, and time is of the essence..

    After all, Pyndon and J Mo's prep threads aren't really rolling yet, we need something to get us through the slow periods in the Twelve Months of Dakar... :deal
