I recall once telling Tav I was so impressed by her design sense
that I would buy anything she designed. Now it's all coming true.

You won't need calendars after the world ends on December 21 smiley - silly.

Which reminds me of a joke. It involves a guy in a white robe marching around with a sign that says "The world really is ending,it's just late like everything else."

Danish Radio is selling tickets for a giant party 21 December where you can watch the world go under live - it is of course also aired live

It has been pointed out that tickets are not refundable

Malabarista - now with added pony

Perhaps the people nearest the time/date line will get together for a massive prank where they all pretend they've stopped existing the moment it turns midnight, thereby panicking the rest of the world.

Though...if it's midnight here at the same time it's midnight there, I'm guessing *something* catastrophic will have happened to the planet! smiley - bigeyes

Has anyone else had some delay in getting
a receipt email after ordering. Usually I
get an email within minutes of placing an
online order but it has now been 48 hours.
Is this typical of LULU? Or should I order
it again?

smiley - cheers

I am also thankful for my smiley - towelsmiley.

>> I'd email lulu, jwf. <<

That is what I have been trying to do but I had
ordered without 'Registering' as a member.

Now every link I click wants to know my 'member
number', 'order number' and 'ticket ID'.

Apparently one cannot 'connect' (Contact Us) if
one is not a Registered Member.

smiley - cross

So I registered. And managed to send an email with
many fields left blank. There was no menu option for
my particular question and no way to type it in so
I clicked 'Item has not arrived'.

Now I fear I am seen as someone different than
the one who ordered.

I just got a form email explaining 101 reasons why
'the item has not arrived' all based on the expectation
that I have had a confirmation. But no consideration
whether the order has been placed or why it was not
confirmed.

I have now replied to their form letter but have no
faith that a human being will ever read it.

I'll let you know what happens.

Oh dear, that's no good! Hopefully a human can come along and take a peek. That's all it needs, sometimes, good humans.
