The Essence of Impatience

It doesn't look like the X-Arcade will make it here by Friday. According to DHL's shipment tracker, it's currently at a terminal in a place called London Colney. The status has remained the same for most of the afternoon. Wikipedia says London Colney is a village in Hertfordshire, north of London. It also notes that London Colney has a large number of pubs compared with its relatively small size. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that my shipment appears to be standing still there? "Short cuts may make delays, but inns make longer ones."

Pity. I would have loved to have had it for the weekend. I don't have anything else planned. Which means I will likely spend the weekend just relaxing, which is fine. It's too hot right now to really do anything smart anyway. (And it hasn't even reached 25°C yet! I'm getting really intolerant of heat these days, it seems.) Of course, I've been waiting for this so long a couple more days really don't, or shouldn't, count for much. Still, I can't help that my impatience just keeps growing day by day and I'm at loss as to what to do with myself in the meanwhile.
