Randomness

I still haven't returned the broken phone.

Why?

Well because The UPS Store (formerly mailboxes etc...) doesn't take FedEx drop offs anymore. So this means that when I did finally swing by there I discovered that the trip was a total waste of time... Well aside from getting to admire the cute girl in the tight female equivalent of the UPS store uniform... seriously, this looked like fairly tight, skimpy (as in hot pants-esque shorts) work out wear with UPS logos on it... Personally I'd say it was really close to not being work-appropriate... granted, I didn't mind but it did take me by surrpise.

Hmmm... actually I guess that relative to how little I had gone out of my way to hit the store, that show made up for it, but it still left me with the problem of finding a place to drop off the phone. So I meandered on over to my house to look online and see where I can send it off from. So I need to drop it off, swing by Lowe's for some building supplies and I can pretty much call it a day. A rather boring and uneventful day so far.

Oh and since I'm feeling meme-ish...

I've seen this done by many of my friends so I'm just going to pick out 10 authors, at random, from my shelves:

Robert A. Heinlein
Oscar Wilde
Isaac Asimov
JK Rowling
JRR Tolkien
Neil Gaimen
Robert Jordan
Douglas Adams
William Shakespeare
Brian Lumley

call me Johnny Not-On The Spot

I guess you already found it hehe.. the Kinkos on Mesa (just before Executive) does fedex shipping too. I helped Tim take stuff there a few times (by where y sister used to live)... figure that'd be the closest/most convenient to you there

Re: call me Johnny Not-On The Spot

Actually the closest plain old drop off point is in front of the post office on Yandell, all of 0.54 miles away from my place.

I have to give Fed Ex credit for a really well implemented search feature on their website. It is hands down the nicest one of those that I've ever seen. Easy to get to, put in your address and it gives you all the possible locations in your vicinity (from just drop boxes up to full service staffed locations). Not only that but is will even map them out for you with the ideal path highlighted. Pretty nifty stuff compared to what most places do.
