Did you know...

May 13th, 2009 at 09:55 pm

that the thing you screw on a lamp after you put on the shade is called a finial?

Interesting.

That's all I have for today. Oh, wait, that's not true.

My credit card is being stupid. Amazon won't ship the Kindle until my CC is charged for the cost (naturally) but it is taking a while for the charge for the Kindle to go through. I'm not sure why it is taking so long. I'm not even close to going over my limit. Most charges go through within a day. I placed the order on Monday and it hasn't shown up. I doubled checked the CC number and everything.

I wonder if Amazon hasn't charged my CC yet. The item was in stock so I should have been charged for it immediately. Hm. Maybe tomorrow I'll make some calls- I am very impatient.

    I believe the decorative caps on stair case posts are also called finials. It's an under-used word. Thanks for reminding me it exists!

    I looked it up and finial pretty much means any sort of decorative cap. I heard someone say it today and figured I would pass on the information.

    So I checked my CC today and the charge for the Kindle has finally gone through. Yay!
