02:09 pm - Tracking numbers and locating stuff you're waiting on
It is true that when you get a tracking number for something, you must check it constantly to see where it is right now and at this particular moment in time. Today, I'm tracking a package that, I hope, will contain a chunk of cool stuff I need for the Three Cranes Druid Moon Rite.

As of 4:57 AM on Saturday, the package was in Maumee, Ohio. Not bad, considering it's being shipped via UPS Ground and apparently departed California at 1:56 AM the same day. That's most impressive because of the time change.

The worst thing about this is waiting, mostly because I had a dream last night where approximately 2/3 of the items I ordered arrived broken and completely unusable. I'm getting really worked up about this rite, and the "secret" nature of it all has me bouncing off the walls with worry.

I think I've said it before, but I have realized just how much I depend on my Grove for feedback through this process. I'm so much enjoying the creation of this ritual as an exercise in creativity, and really, really hoping that it comes off well. Some particularly odd things about this include the placement of the opening and closing of the gates and the addition of mystery workings surrounding the mistletoe. . . A couple of folks should expect an email with a link to the liturgy soon. :)

I'm very excited to see how this comes out. Very, very excited.

I do the same thing with tracking numbers...

But, many congrats on finishing the study programs and being approved!

Yes. I was digging for that, myself.

That's exactly what I do with tracking numbers, too. It's a wonder I'm not crazy...oh, wait. :-D

I get so bouncy and excited before a ritual - and I don't mean the day before - I mean a week or two (or sometimes more) before depending on how things are going and what we will be doing. Doing the burning sun wheel and being able to pull it off was one of those rituals, our Lughnasadh ritual and planning the games for the ritual was another. I love this so much. I mean, I really really love writing ritual and when I get good feedback from Protogrove members, it means the world to me.

One time, I was waiting on a package for some time.

I looked at the tracking, and I found out that it had triangulated my location by about 150-200 miles all around.

I found that unamusing.

By the way, I think it's incredibly appropriate that you have access to time traveling packages.

That's the thing though -- he doesn't have access to it yet.

I suspect its time-traveling properties will disappear once he does have access to it; UPS has capabilities the rest of us can only dream of.

Semantics :-)

This is possible, but brings to mind a serious philosophical question: Does the nature of time traveling packages change upon their receipt into the hands of the addressee?

hey i dont have time to read LJs, but I just wanted to notify you that there is a square in Barcelona called la Manzana de Discordia, or the Apple of Discordia. It´s a modernist block of bizzarre, contrasting architecture. Weren´t sure if you were aware of it or not - it jumped out and went BOO when I was reading my guidebook.

Luego.
