    Some good news and bad news...

    The good news is: I know where the camera is -- it's in my house.

    The bad news is: I know where the camera is -- it's in my house.

    Some Japan Post guy came to my door tonight (I was expecting my package from Amazon) and after a fairly convoluted discussion in Japanese (which I really don't understand), we were able to determine that JapanPost has figured out that there is some kind of "machine" in my package (a.k.a. "the camera") that has a battery in it, which is apparently very dangerous ("security very very"). So looks like I'll have to remove the battery in order to get it out of the country. I suppose I could just keep it in the box, outside of the camera, but I have a feeling I'd just get another knock on the door reminding me of the very very security risk I have on a package covered in Hello Kitty stamps.

    So there'll be a slight delay (I'll get it out tomorrow or this weekend), and I guess I can be pretty confident that the x-rays they used to scan the package will have erased the beautiful, but rare, three-horned Japanese unicorn (smaller than the regular kind, of course) that I managed to capture in the bamboo grove at my university.

    Rachelle - your post made my day. Sounds like a funny encounter you had with the JapanPost guy. And what personal service, too!

    Please take as long as you need! Also - send it to Fred without the battery. I'll send a replacement battery to him so it is ready for him by the time he gets the camera.

    Finally - don't worry about the rare Unicorn not showing up. We can always photoshop her in.

    Hm, you'd think they'd know what a 'camera' is...

    Shawn, I have a few 123s scattered about, no need to post me one.

    Three-horned UNIcorn... Wouldn't that make it a TRIcorn? Or am I confusing it with a Revolutionary War-era hat of no practical use?

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Fred is working without battery ? So on what kind of energy he is relying to post ? Solar ?
    If I dare, I wouldn't even venture that is can be of course... natural gas !

    It's OK, as long as the camera isn't on the loose in the moose's house...

    Rachelle:

    Did you ask if you could send the camera with a chicken installed?

    Or exploding Macintosh computers - the PRAM batteries on the older Macs are notorious for exploding once they get past 10 years of age. Typically damage the motherboard enough that it can be a total loss.
