RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


February 21st, 2008: The dinosaur I linked to the other day isn't actually a "dinosaur", it is a "pterosaur" which is not a dinosaur! But I am defending myself by saying that it's SO CUTE that it could be a dinosaur. Yes.

So hey, remember when someone on eBay ripped off my shirt? Hot Topic (never the most respectable company at the best of times) is now stealing Jess Fink's design she made for Threadless. Here's her design and here's Hot Topic's rip of it. The eBay thing ended well for me: I emailed the guy and he took it down and I considered the matter closed. Jess emailed Hot Topic and they wrote back with what's really a "ha ha what do you mean they're the same that's CRAZY" response, and you can imagine them tugging at their collar uncomfortably while they say it. Anyway! The best thing to do in these situations is draw attention to it, because then things seem to get fixed. So clean up your act, Hot Topic!

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 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.
December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL.
December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)

One year ago today: t-rex apparently believes all westerns are john ford westerns, but that's okay. i could live with that.
