Canada Post and I are friends again...for now.

As per normal, I have an ongoing love/hate relationship with Canada Post and the entire mail system in general.
I order something, I track its progress across the country fanatically, and then it gets to Edmonton and I'm left in a stage of undefined anticipation...am I going to get my package anytime soon? Am I going to have to follow up with Canada Post to see if my package was lost? I NEED TO KNOW HOW I'M SUPPOSED TO BE FEELING RIGHT NOW!

So anyways, while on one hand I'm a bit upset with the mail system because my copy of Civilization V (don't you dare judge me. Don't do it!...please?) has apparently gone missing as it was supposed to have arrived over a week ago...on Friday afternoon I DID get my new basketball kicks in the mail on schedule! Booooooya!:


Sneaker porn...


These bad boys even have a "heat check" feature on them which means the black "3-stripes" will turn to white when your feet get hot. The slogan attached to the feature is "Now your coach and teammates can KNOW you're busting your ass getting up and down the court!".
Ha! Seriously.

I realize that your previous stance of "Will not judge" has now been shifted into full on "Judging...and how!".

and...I'm okay with that.

This is a real product? You bought sneakers that allow other people to know when your feet are sweaty?

Paul's jealous and wants to know where you got them...yes, your aunt-in-law still checks your blog. I hope TJ is OK. AMAZING pictures of the northern lights (still barely want to visit, let alone EVER live there). Pop and Abby's birthdays are on Tuesday, family dinner on Monday, wish you were here. Take care, Alex.

Love, all of us
