Long story short, I ended up wasting an entire morning at customs' plus I had to pay a storage fee because it has taken me longer than seven days to collect the thing. This time, as the shipment is arriving by courier, the shipping company gets to sort it out. Still, bah about my goodies being delayed. I am so looking forward to getting my new e-book reader :-) Already downloaded a load of ebooks and looked into format conversions.
As for the day so far, aside from my parcel not arriving, it has been pretty decent. The only thing I'm missing is some air conditioning as it's once again really hot. Might retreat into the basement with my laptop later on.
