Silly Birthday Brag
« on: July 06, 2018, 11:41:05 PM »
Hi everyone~

I got some ponies for my (very late) birthday. They're late because- ..well, you'll see.

These ponies are pretty common, so to most of you guys it might not seem brag-worthy, but when your only source of ponies tends to be overpriced e-bay auctions, every pony you get feels like a Grail. Heh.

Here's a little story about the ponies, it's kinda long so I'll put it in spoilers.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And now, the ponies that I recieved, again, spoilers because the images are kinda biiiig.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

And that's basically my not-so-bragworthy brag. I wouldn't have posted this at all if the story behind them getting here wasn't so silly, but here we are.
I don't get to buy ponies often, but I cherish the few I do get. <3

Lol. This is funny. I know how annoying mail getting lost can be. One time when the family took a trip to Australia, we decided to ship our souvenirs and just stuff we couldn’t fit in the suitcases back to Canada. Things is, they got lost. Approximately one month later, we got them back. Still wondering where a pair of my pants went though...
    They look really happy settling into their new abode.

Love the story of your ponies' journey, and I'm glad they got to you in the end! I once had a couple of ponies take six months to get to me from America - goodness only knows what sort of adventures they had! We had a story at one point about how they got out of the parcel and lived wild in Kentucky (the last place they got scanned), surviving on food dropped by Global Shipping employees. At least neither of them had a gambling addiction :D

JUST your pants? Wow that's kind of a random item to go missing, but I'm glad everything else made it to you in one piece!

Oof! Six months, that makes my one and a half seem so short in comparison, hah! I'd have given up at that point. Still, I'm happy your ponies didn't get lost in the mail, things could definitely always be worse, hmm?

Wow, what a great story. Packages sometimes have such a weird journey! I had one that jumped back and forth between Virginia and Tennessee like 3 times before continuing onto its destination. Maybe Mewtwo did have a gambling problem, or maybe it was because Chicago was close to a large body of water where he could build his fortress of clones.

High Flyer looks pretty lovely after cleanup!

Mail carriers seem to love playing tennis with packages, huh?
Oh my, I never thought about the water.. planning world domination again, eh, Mewtwo? That's a bad kitty!  :lol:

Yeah, she was pretty messy, I'm just glad all those black marks came off relatively easily.

Congrats! I'm sure they were well worth the wait! High Flyer looks adorable with a bob :heart:

Thanks! I think she looks cute with it, too, It actually really suits her, hehe.
Gusty was definitely worth the wait, since she's one of my Childhood ponies that I was looking to regain.

OMG the dreaded Chicago sorting centre! Ironically I have had more than one package sent to me which has got caught up there or has been sent...to CANADA...instead of to the UK because apparently the people there don't know that other places than Canada have postal codes and that UK means UK not Canada.

So yeah, no surprises your package got messed around. They're really bad ><

BUT so glad they did arrive with you eventually! And congrats on your new additions. I agree that Gusty and Juniper in particular look very nice, and High Flyer now looks loved at least :) Maybe you can make her some new wings??

Yeah, I'm glad whoever cut her hair didn't cut it too short, since it actually kinda looks nice on her. :)

Ugh. Whenever I see "CHICAGO, IL" on packages coming from the US I wince, because I know it's going to get stuck there for ages. At least they didn't get damaged and discarded like the DVD set I bought off Amazon recently. Canada Post doin' a great job up here. Thankfully Amazon was good about replacing the lost order free of charge, but holy yikes I'm glad USPS didn't lose/damage the ponies. D:

I'd be up to buy some replacement wings for High Flyer eventually, I don't trust myself with making them. > .>;

Congrats on snagging some new ponies.  That is an insane story about how they got to you!  Talk about the postal service making more work for themselves.  So glad your parcel arrived safely in the end.  :D

Yeah, they really dragged it out longer than necessary. Oh, USPS, you guys are silly. Me too, though. I was afraid Gusty got lost! She was basically the meat of the package for me. Haha!

Oh man, if it weren't for her I'd basically only have that Pony Bride and Wysteria. She's a keeper, eh? :P
you know i'm joking, mew

I love high flyer's mane. It's so unique!

Small ponies pull of bobs quite well in my opinion! ^^

Ohhhh my what a voyage!  Glad they are safe with you at last!

And they're glad to be out of Chicago. :silly:
