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


May 26th, 2008: Kate Beaton did a great comic about your friend and mine Joey Comeau of A Softer World. And then (then!) I noticed that somehow I'd missed that she'd done my request for her History Comics Project #2, which was "but I need those baskets back". Hooray! So it was a Katy-filled morning for me and now it is for you too!

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: as a bonus, 'life of crime' is included as an illustrative anecdote at the end of the book. STRAIGHT TO NUMBER ONE ON THE NEW YORK TIMES, BABY!
