#323 - 2009-12-02 - on the first day of christmas
on the first day of christmas
At first I was ever so happy when the mail man knocked on my door.. but then I realized they sent me the wrong bloody card.

Fortunately the shop is not that far away, so I went there to inform them of their mistake, and the guy behind the counter had the nerve to claim that it was me who placed an order for the incorrect product - until I pointed out, that the invoice specified that I did in fact order the correct product.

Then he wanted to reimburse the purchase - excluding the transport fee - even though the mistake was on their side. So - it ended up with me having to wait for them to get the correct card in stock again.. sigh.

I heard that the first day of Christmas is the 25th :P

It is, and I was going to explain the actual meaning of the song, but then I decided not to.
For anyone who wants to read into religious symbolism taken to the extreme, feel free to google 'twelve days of christmas'. I'm telling you, it's _not_ what I expected..

Oh? What did you expect? And what was it instead? (I'd rather you tell me, than Google it -angel face-)
2009-12-15 23:08:16 CET
well, the song goes '.. my true love gave to me'.. and then all these funny things. well.. turns out, they're all symbols of different totally christian-nerdy things, that supposedly only makes sense to (and I quote) "Christians who are part of liturgical church traditions" (end quote).
Go ahead - look it up. The song will be soo less fun after that (did I say that out loud?):

Oh wow o_o I am in awe and wonder....
2009-12-16 18:30:13 CET
I don't know if it's working....

Is it? I wonder how long a message I have to write for it to not work? Will this do, maybe? Or should I write a bit more?

Hmm.... Let's see what happens :)

ding ding.. now I broke the mailer.. ahem..
2009-12-16 18:33:15 CET
.. and now it's working again
2009-12-16 18:33:25 CET
Uuuuuuuhh, it appears to have been working :D

Let's see if it works again :D
2009-12-16 18:34:19 CET
-lol- Why would you break the mailer? o_O

What did you do to it? :P
2009-12-16 18:36:13 CET
I changed the format of the email it sends to me when I receive a new comment.. and that made gmail think it was spam.. it's fixed again though. Yay :)

Weird smilies should be possible now by the way ;)
2009-12-16 18:41:19 CET
Weird smilies? Where? Where?! -looking around, furiously-

Or rather, how? :D I want weird smilies! xD
2009-12-16 18:42:32 CET
>.<, >_< etc. ;)
2009-12-16 18:48:10 CET
Were they not doable before? O_O

I mean, haven't I been doing them? What? Where? I mean, what? -utterly confused-
2009-12-16 18:55:31 CET
The short answer is no and yes.. the long answer is 'yes, if used in a certain combination'.. but it's all fixed now (knock on wood)
2009-12-17 00:12:32 CET
In a certain combination? Which combo?
