A Short Post On Cell Phone Numbers And On Ordering Food From Amazon

22 06 2011

A friend called from New York last night. Her area code was 314: Saint Louis. It used to be that you could tell where a person was calling from based on their area code, but local and mobile number portability make that no longer the case. Then again, it used to be that you didn’t have caller ID…

Separately, I recently realized that I really like Wheat Thins. A lot. But we just finished a monster shopping trip and didn’t think that we’d be near a real supermarket for weeks. After being mopey for about five seconds I realized that I can use my Amazon Prime membership to get Wheat Thins delivered to me anywhere I want in two days flat, and at a cheaper price than the supermarket. I think that I’ll soon be the first person to pick up a General Delivery order of Wheat Thins.

How do you guys get mail, anyway?

General Delivery, mostly. Anyone can have mail sent to (nearly) any post office in the country, where it will be held for 30 days for pickup. General Deliver mail is addressed:

First Last
General Delivery
City, State Zip

I just picked up General Delivery mail today, actually!

Haha…is this the beginning of wheat thin addicts-anonymous-on-the-road 🙂
I must say we’ve ordered a few wierd things on the way…the wierdest probably being grass-fed meat organs. Yes…it’s a long story…one for a glass or two

I’m looking forward to that glass (or two). Grass-fed meat organs? Yum.
