The tracking message for the package with my Kindle currently says “Possible delay in delivery due to extra carrier processing” as of 2:55AM February 23 – customs, I presume. This is especially odd since it arrived in the country at 4:17PM Feb 21 – what were they doing with it for a day and a half? And what exactly is “possible” about this delay?

Also annoying: the primary early symptom for a UTI is feeling like you have to pee all the time. The best treatment I know of is lots and lots of fluids (even better if the fluids are OJ and cranberry juice). The astute reader will immediately perceive the problem here: it’s a little difficult to tell if you’re feeling any better when you actually *do* have to pee all the time. (Also, it makes it hard to concentrate on anything.)
