I’ve got a new toy en route and I can empathize with Steven’s occasional UPS blogging:

I ordered on Thursday, the package left New Jersey on Friday, but it still hasn’t had an arrival scan anywhere. sigh.
UPDATE: ok finally arrived in Wisconsin!

looks like it finally made it from new Jersey to the distribution point in Milwaukee. It left seven hours later, probably for the regional center in nearby Wausau, and will be out on the truck for delivery by tomorrow morning. But good grief, it took five days to get from New jersey to Wisconsin?? Even taking into account that there was a two day weekend in between, that still seems absurdly long. Do the trucks make multiple stops en route?
