I know someone who's going to think this might fall into the category of "going a bit over board". I don't think so at all ;)

I'm a bit baffled by the long delivery time though. May 20th. Really? I seem to remember previous orders having a lot shorter shipping time. Maybe steam boats are back in business?
Maybe it's good, the deliverytime being so long. Gives me a chance to finish my aunts birthday shawl by May 3rd, the black knee stockings that need to be done by May 30th, and dads Koolhaas for his birthday in mid May.

I don't know how Amazon Europe works, but I can say they always overestimate how long it will take for stuff to arrive. I bet it will be there in 2 weeks or less.

Ups. Det sto visst 19 mai på mine. Mitt ble sendt i to pakker. Ja ja - det skal vel roes over dammen.

Burde vel fått autogiro på kredittkortet slik at jeg slapp å se regningen neste måned.

I recently had something shipped to the UK for a secret pal exchange, it took a little over a week.

In the same vein:

tonight's take-out dinner (one adult, two kids) from a sushi place in Bislet-- 275 kr.
my recent order from KnitPicks (shipped through secret agent in the states ;) totaling 22 skeins of yarn -- $55.88 = 278 kr.

OMG indeed. I say take advantage!
