No, I'm Not Dead

I've been reading other blogs, wondering if the Rapture is approaching, doing everyday chores, hoping the Rapture is coming soon, going to work everyday - and have I mentioned, praying for the Rapture to come soon?

OK - now that I have that out of the way - I ordered a book from a used book store through Abebooks. com today. This is the note that I received in my email to let me know the book had been shipped:

Just a short note to inform you that the book you ordered from One Penny Books has been gently taken from the book shelf in the secret vault with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow. A team of 50 employees inspected your book to make sure they were in the best possible condition (for a used book) before mailing. Our packing specialist lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your book into the finest water proof envelope that money can buy. We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private jet on this day. I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at One Penny Books. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year". We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to visit with us for all your reading needs!! Oh and did I forget to tell you that from time to time, our jet is stuck on the run-way? Well because it is a book, which is media mail, it can travel "extremely" slowly. And even though I am royalty. I can't control everything. So please take that into consideration.

Thank you once again,
May this new year, be a blessed one.

Tell me that isn't the most clever and funny confirmation email you've ever received after purchasing something. Of COURSE I'll shop with them again - who could help it??
