Mysterious Gift


Someone sent me a laptop. It's a HP Mini-note PC. I'm thrilled, surprised, and curious. Who is this generous gift giver? I've been thinking that the main impediment to my doing any traveling these days is the umbilical cord that keeps me sitting at my chair at my desk tied to my fabulous Imac. I learned a whole world of new tricks here at my desk learning to blog, be a better writer, make new friends, have a life. But this? This is a gift that calls for a THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I used the tracking info from UPS and it led me to eCOST.com who shipped it. But that's as close as I've been able to get to the humanitarian who sent this to me. Speak up oh generous one. This calls for a hug at the very least.

What a lovely surprise! You are loved!!! Any idea who sent it to you?

Utah Savage said...

None at all. There have been several bloggers who've asked for my address to send me something, but this has arrived without any fanfare. Phillip is arriving this afternoon. He's my blog-mate and administrator. If the gift giver's identity can be tracked down, he can do it.

I'm so lucky right now, I keep pinching myself. I'll post bruises later.

CDP said...

What a nice surprise! Enjoy it!

Lisa said...

That is so cool! Yes, Utah, you are definitely loved. Maybe I'd better go check the bank statement to see if MathMan has decided it's high time to woo you.

Utah Savage said...

CDP I can't imagine who or why. It's making me a little crazier and very giddy.

Lisa, Sadly Mathman has no jones for me. You are just too juicy to compete with. Besides I thought you were going to run away and come live with me.

Beach Bum said...

Now if someone wants to give unsolicited gifts I must say there is a 9-foot longboard I've had my eye for quite sometime.

Comrade Kevin said...

If I had the money, I'd have gladly sent it to you. But it isn't me.

Utah Savage said...

Well we have in our midst a philanthropist. Not commenting today however.

Naj said...

:) This is one great gift! and so nice and light and shiny! Enjoy writing from bed!

Fran said...

Well I have neither your address OR cash flow-- so it ain't me babe.

The intrigue continues......

susan said...

Nor me but you know I would've if I could've. What sheer delight to see such a lovely gift presented to such a beautiful woman.

Amos said...

A random act of kindness? Could be.

Utah Savage said...

Amos, stay tuned for the next, next post. There will be photos of the big tree all in rather large pieces in my driveway and in front of the greenhouse. But no holes poked in the roof, no glass broken. But those big limbs coming down sounded like bombs bursting in air. Cyrus needed some serious coaxing to get him out to pee after the tree guys moved on. Sitenoise is on his way home and we're back to "normalish."

Randal Graves said...

It was me. That'll be 700 clams.

Utah Savage said...

Randal, your scampishness knows no bounds!

Suzan said...

Yes, scampish Randal continues on his merry way, but it may well have been him trying to get the attention of his better half.

Whoever it was, you deserve it Utah. Now you are truly mobile.

Does it have a built-in cam for that much-awaited upper arm shot?

Enjoy!

Love ya,

S

Bob said...

How very awesome.

Utah Savage said...

Susan, Bob, how nice to see you. It has a camera and can also recored live like life, I think. Will get all this learning thing sorted out as soon as I can clear my driveway of tree limbs and hit the road in my mommy mobile for Office Depot. It may take a few days.

Dr. Zaius said...

Ha! That's great! Maybe they will send you some cookies, too. ;o)

The Peach Tart said...

I read this the other day and thought....what a nice surprise. Did you ever find out the angel who sent it?

Utah Savage said...

I've been sworn to secrecy, but it's one of us bloggers. How nice is that?

Freida Bee, MD said...

Woot! Couldn't have happened to a hotter lady! (I was gonna say nicer, but didn't want to insult you, dear.)
