September 4th, 2007: If you're not feeling like being productive today, I recommend TV Tropes - it's a website categorizing all sorts of story elements (from tv, fiction, video games - everywhere, really) that you've seen before but never had a name for. It's so easy to lose hours just browsing the site. It's a wiki, but, in their own words, "a buttload less formal than Wikipedia". I think you'll like it!
To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!
December 5th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 6th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.
December 11th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL.
December 16th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option.
December 19th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
