Going Public

Light Fantastik has gone public. No more login screens to shelter us from the crazies. I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this since there is that mustache/tattoo picture of me on here and I have a feeling that it will end up being printed out and pasted all over my office. Oh the humanity.

This decision is largely due to the fact that one of the packages we sent US Post from Florida back to ourselves in NYC only contained some of our items. The package did not look like it had been tampered with, but after noticing that the box was incomplete I then saw a tiny little white sticker that read: “Reconditioned by Jacksonville, FL Bulk Media”.  What is even more alarming is that the box contained a tube of shampoo, an elementary school science book, a Fourth of July parade advertisement, and a half eaten, er..., can of peanuts that are not ours.

I’ve been told by the Jacksonville, FL Bulk Media Center that most likely our box opened in transit and that they tried their best to repackage it.  Our missing items may be on their way to the Recovery Center in Atlanta, GA.  But, our main concern is that this is not the case and that someone else has our stuff. Most likely starving for peanuts and behind in her science homework.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t care that much. Stuff is stuff and most everything can be replaced. But it was at around 3:30 AM this morning Sarah awoke in horror to realize that the missing items included Jack and Arlo’s baby books and some other photo albums.

So, our hope is that Google will do it’s indexing magic and our lives will be searchable. People will see how cool Jack is and send us back his baby book.  Public humiliation is a small price to pay for precious memories.

We’ll keep you all updated.

How dreadful.  I’m so sorry that having you back in NYC means this.  But it is nice to have you back.

I truly believe that you guys will get your baby books back - I can’t imagine what kind of person would find them and not try to track you down.  Is your last name written somewhere in one of the books?

Ugh, what a terrible thing to happen!

I’ll link to you, maybe it’ll help make you more visible to google…
