A couple weeks ago, I ordered a whole slew of stuff from, and they have sent me stuff in multiple packages as things were back-ordered.  But what's really confusing (in addition to the fact that something was marked as sent in my first order that was canceled, apparently in the warehouse, when they realized they don't have any more of the item and I guess they don't plan to make any more) is that they keep sending me emails about shipping my order, and it includes the entire fucking order each time.  I just got an email from them with the whole list of items and I have no clue what it's about because two days ago they confirmed that rather than wait for an unknown eternity for the last item to come off backorder that they would cancel the order for that item.  So what is this email about my order for?  I'm sure it makes sense to them -- that it indicates some kind of updating of the status of each item -- and perhaps it would make sense to me as well if the list were only a couple items long, but given that my order was huge, I don't know what's going on.  I think it would be much less confusing if the emails were titled "Order Update" or something instead of blah blah "shipment confirmation" -- especially when the shipment confirmation is that they are not shipping me something. 

But overall, I was happy with my experience with this order.  The return policy is quite generous and straightforward, and I ended up with many items that I liked (though naturally I have modified the items for better fit, especially in making them a more convenient shorter length rather than the crotch-covering length that seems popular right now). 

I've been happy enough with how the shortened shirts have turned out that I'm planning on looking at a previous crop of t-shirts I purchased with an eye toward shortening some of them as well.  It's weird how shortening something as little as an inch can make such a difference in how they look and feel.

I asked Robert to buy me another set of the cat quilting fabric set (5 smallish pieces in coordinating prints) that I had purchased a few weeks ago at Wal-Mart, and last night I showed him what it looked like.  He came home today with three different sets of cat fabric because he couldn't remember which one I wanted.  I loved it.  They did not have 3 sets last time I was there, only the one, or I would have bought all three at the time.  So be expecting cat fabric awesomeness on this blog in the coming weeks.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

I disapprove of fabric made from cats.

That is all.

I guess it won't help if I say the fabric is made out of cats genetically engineered and grown in petri dishes in labs (like that SF type meat)?

OK, would you settle for fabric with artistic renditions of cats or is this like the whole representations of Mohammed thing? I don't want to be insensitive on the religious front. (Hah. As if.)

Hmm. I guess I could handle an artistic rendition.

I just hope you didn't get any calico!
