The final stages of the DVD saga November 2, 2009

Rabbits! It’s the first of the month.
It’s a strange British habit: the first words that you speak on the first day of the month should be “Rabbits!” This is responded to with: “A pinch and punch for the first of the month.” This statement may then be followed by: “A pinch and kick for being so quick.” The last two phases are frequently accompanied by the appropriate actions.

Having got that piece of arcanery out of the way, now we are back to what we hope to be the final stages of the current DVD saga.
At last we have all three of our new titles in stock!

We were expecting the replacement Venus 1 discs to be here early last week, immediately after our return from White Point, but no, they eventually arrived in Halifax late last Thursday afternoon. Being rather excited about the whole thing, we made arrangements to save a day and collect them ourselves, rather that waiting for a courier to deliver them. Believe me, we are really anxious to get them shipped out of here and into your hands. It’s going to be a complex process, but Sue and I will begin shipping them out today.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding: we hope you find them well worth the interminable wait. I had better get back to packing discs right now!

    OMG! One of my college roommates and I used to try to beat the other one to say “White Rabbit!” on the first day of the month. She’s the one that taught it to me, but I don’t know the why. Might be related to your story.

    And we used to try to say “Rabbit, rabbit” as the first words of the new month and before our feet hit the floor that day.

    The first words I speak at the first of each month are…”Oh my goodness…where did last month go??!!!
