I hate you (in the sense that I totally envy you).

I'm guessing two things...
1) It was blessedly quick thanks to the fact that it is actually impossible to driver across the atlantic so a plane was necessary.
2) If pull the gun and buy it from chapters/indigo and have it shipped to Mexico I won't be so lucky, as driving all the way here is possible

And as an aside: umm, I was looking through the full smiley list, you know, so the "I hate you" bit wouldn't come off as serious hate and more my wanting his Aura and well, does anyone think that the "mellow" smiley looks a lot more creepy pervy than mellow? (well, maybe it's a mellow creepy pervy psychopath but they shortened the name...)

There wasn't but whether you get customs tax or not on a package worth more than about 500 Swedish Kr. is a lottery. Most of the time no tax is added but I does happen. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with package size either.
