Driving along, it almost looks like it's snowing. In reality, it's just huge swarms of gnats. They arrived today, out of nowhere.

Checking out the new Alex Clare album. So far, not as impressed as I was with his previous effort.
.@ups needs to fire their UI/UX designer right now, and have their whole site recreated. Worse than not having a site. Thx @amazon
Apparently I had the wrong street number for Thing 1's dorm (though, all packages I had sent to her from Amazon last year were successfully delivered to that address). UPS, instead of recognizing "hey, that's a dorm at that college, and we deliver *all* packages for that college to one central location, regardless of address", just rejected it and made a note on their site saying the address was incorrect (no notifications were sent to me, though; I only found out when I tried to check the tracking information). I then went to their site to correct the address, but they only let you change one part of the address. Since they assigned the first name of the dorm to the "street number" field, the rest of the dorm name to the "street name" field, and the actual street address to the "address line 2" field, I tried to fix all of the fields; nope, I can only change one. If I just try to update the "address line 2", it rejects it, telling me the address is still incorrect. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Heaven forbid they actually provide you with some method of communicating with a human (not that I really want to; I'm just running out of options). Thing 1 is very impatiently waiting for the textbooks I ordered for her. I'm very afraid that I'm going to have to try to order them from her campus bookstore, and then just have her return the whole Amazon package to sender. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
At this point, I'd even be happy if I could somehow ask them to hold the package there, and just tell Thing 1 that she has to go to UPS to pick it up; I'm just not sure if that's even possible. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
i've learned address problems with UPS (and i've had many) are always easier solved on the phone, unfortunately. - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd be happy to do that, but it haven't been able to find a phone number, yet. Man, I thought FedEx was bad. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
? At the bottom of every page is a Call Customer Service link - the number is 1-800-742-5877 - holly #ravingfangirl
Thanks, Holly. I called, and, somehow, they already had the correct address (not from anything I did, since I never got far enough to give them that part of the address). I also called Thing 1 & asked her which books she absolutely needs before Friday. First, she said that she needed all of them. Then, when I asked her again, she decided she didn't need any of them that badly (the one she really needed was for an 8 a.m. class tomorrow, and she wouldn't have had that in time anyway). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
How easy/difficult is it to return stuff to @amazon?
Thing 1 was already having a meltdown about the fact that she wouldn't get her textbooks until tomorrow night. Now, that's delayed by at least 1 more day. I'm guessing is going to have to buy her books from the bookstore, and have her return the Amazon order once (if) it arrives. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Very easy, in my experience. - joey
I've had very good luck with them, especially if I call them to start the process - in at least one instance, they were able to recall a package I couldn't get UPS to deliver properly. - Jennifer Dittrich
I've never had a problem. - Katy S

Such a weird feeling. For the first time in about 3 months, I'm all alone at the house. I have no idea what to do. #backtoschool

I'm in Ann Arbor if anyone's in the general area & might want to grab a bite to eat tomorrow afternoon. @barrywynn @nickdenardis
Clearly, the McDonald's at this service plaza on the Ohio turnpike was not prepared to actually have customers. 25 minutes to get my food
One of the saddest things about Robin Williams' passing: The kidlet had no idea who he was; I couldn't think of a single thing that she might have seen (outside of possibly his one/two episode stint on SVU) with him in it. I told her he was the Genie from Aladdin, but I don't think she's even ever watched that. I will need to rectify this.
Was looking at #Smallville on #Amazon earlier. $150 for the full series on DVD; ~$400 to purchase it for streaming, instead.
