I tried not to live in suspense, not to think of how much fun it would be to play with this weekend, while waiting for it to arrive (I had it shipped to me at my office) but I couldn't help feeling disappointed when 4 pm passed and it hadn't appeared.
I checked the email: it said "December 18". I followed a link or two. They said "December 18".
I finally followed a link out of the vendor website to the FedEx website. And there, for expected date of arrival, it said ... December 19!
*wails* I won't be there December 19! I'll have to wait until Monday!
