So, my parents are buying me an iPod for graduation. This is undoubtedly the best gift I’ll have ever received. I didn’t think to order it until yesterday, but I was hoping by some divine strike of grace that I’d receive it by Saturday so I could actually have it for the trip up to Ontario. (Did I mention I’m leaving for Ontario on Sunday?) So anyway, Apple gave me a FedEx tracking number so I could follow its progress. It started out in Shanghai, Connecticut. That’s somewhat amusing in and of itself, but I digress. Keep in mind I live in Virginia right now. From Shanghai it was shipped to ANCHORAGE, ALASKA. What in the world! I’m never going to get that thing! Who plans these shipping routes??
