Jungleboy Transparent

A pleasure dealing with professionals for a change

As bovil mentioned in his LJ, our wine cabinet was delivered today.

It took some time for me to connect with the delivery department for Cal Wine Cellars -- Vinocraft (they had the wrong last digit for my cell number, and I was swamped during the day at work and kept not having time to retrieve the number from voicemail). Once I did we arranged for delivery this morning.

I asked them how early they could arrive, and was told the warehouse didn't open until 8:30. So we made an appointment for them to deliver around 9:30, with a guarantee they'd be here before 10.

I got up, went for a run on the elliptical at the gym, and got back about 9:00. They'd already called to confirm our address.

At 9:20 they arrived and went to work. By 9:45 they were done.

I've had to deal with so many dreadful examples of customer service lately, especially with service appointments, that I thought it appropriate to put a shout out about a company that still does it right.

Stupid Hair tricks (previously on the not-Andy filter)

So kaysho had this impulsive idea about doing some wild hair color for Further Confusion ... and it must be contagious.

It occurred to me that given how fast my hair grows, I could grow it out to a slightly taller flattop, and then see if Belinda could bleach it out and dye zebra stripes in it. And since Anime LA is the weekend after Further Confusion, it would pass as Animal Hair for FC and Anime Hair for AnimeLA.

And two weeks later it'll all be grown out far enough for my usual high and tight to take it back to normal. Well as normal as a high and tight can look :-)

How's that for goofy? Waddaya think?

(bovil has already said it's ok with him if I want to do animal-fur hair for FC. I just want to see your reactions without him seeing them :-)

Edited: I've unlocked the post so the following one makes sense.
