My Meermin timeline, in case anyone is interested:

Note: This is from the classic line and is NOT MTM.
11/23/2012: Shoes Ordered
11/23/2012: Order Confirmation Email Received
11/27/2012: Invoice Received
Invoice states that “As your order is ready to ship, we will send you a Pay pal payment request”
12/10/2012: Request for Payment Received
Payment request states that “your order will be ready for shipment within 20 – 25 days. Meermin now awaits the finalisation of your payment,” [which I took to mean that I should pay now.]
12/13/2012: Payment executed
01/07/2013: Email sent to request update on order (as it had been 28 days since payment request).
01/09/2013: Email received stating “Your pair will be ready during this week.”
[received on a Wednesday, which I assumed would mean that it would ship by that weekend, although it appears
he was referring to the following weekend.]
