Travel, Cards, and So On

The Spotted Pair and I have arrived safely at the Parental Lair, although Orion was very unhappy about Travis and my attempts to catch him and put him in the new carrier (Travis kindly gave us a lift to the airport). Orion, to the best of our knowledge, had never been on a plane before, whereas Ms. Spots regards air travel as something she dislikes heartily but which one recovers from in an hour or so.
I have now gotten all twelve job applications off my hands and do not plan to prepare any more this academic year unless something absolutely fabulous comes along. Or so I tell myself. I also finished off yet another postdoc application, and am having that feeling of "maybe this is really enough" and that perhaps I shouldn't bother to do any more this year. After all, if I don't finish the dissertation itself, there is not much use in being offered jobs or postdocs.
Turning our thoughts from matters lapine and academic, there is the year-end sale at Archelaus to contemplate:
Despite our best efforts at cost containment, inflation is finally catching up with Archelaus! As of January 1, 2008, the prices of a number of our fine cards will increase, as will the charges for shipping and handling. This is our first price increase in over two years of operation.
However, you have an opportunity to turn this otherwise distressing situation to your advantage! To rid ourselves of as many fine cards printed with the old prices as possible, we are having a pre-price-hike, year-end, inventory-clearance sale.

Print out a retail order form, get it postmarked by December 31, 2007, and take a 10% discount on your entire order!

Note: If the Archelaus link isn't working, trim out the part of the URL that makes it look like part of this site. The code is OK on my end but Blogger seems to be experiencing a bug.

Your Archelaus link appears to be out-of-order....

Happy holidays to you and your rabbits!

It's a Blogger problem. For some reason Blogger keeps adding the blog's URL to the front of the Archelaus URL.

I reported it but I can't seem to get it to work right as it's fine in the edit stage, just not in the publish stage.

Yes, cease and desist now! Dissertation only at this stage.
