Tracking the book

Right, my Happy Humanists book now physically exists in the world. Blurb finished printing this morning, and shipped it via UPS. I have the tracking number, and I was feeling pretty optimistic for a while.

Unfortunately, its current status is ‘Exception’. ‘An unforeseen event has occurred which could result in a change to the Scheduled Delivery Date’. Shit. The reason given is ‘UPS INTERNAL ACTIVITY CODE’, which doesn’t help much.

*whine*

I’ll be obsessively checking the tracking page for the rest of the day, then…

Update @ 1725: Still in limbo. Sigh. Last time it shipped overnight, so I’m just going to hope. A classmate has suggested I print out the preview pages from Blurb’s software and hand these in, so the project is at least ‘complete’. That’s a pretty good idea, and if all else fails it’ll have to do.

Update @ 1856: Ooh! The books are ‘In transit’ and ‘On time’! They’ll be delivered some time between 9am and 7pm tomorrow. Gulp. UPS, I take it all back, and will destroy the voodoo dools forthwith.
