in the order you placed on September 22 2005 10:39 PDT
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay.
Order status can change quickly, and it is possible that your order may even ship between the time we send this message and the time that you read it. When items in your order are shipped, you will receive an e-mail confirming the date, contents, and method of your shipment.
