It's due to arrive tomorrow. I'm giddy. I'll update when it arrives and once I've verified that it's one bad mother...shut yo mouth! I'm just talkin' about my lappy.
::update:: after reviewing my tracking info, it now appears that my little 5lb. box has made its way out of FL (its origin and intended destination) and up to Atlanta. The 30lb. box, or Little Three-Oh as I call it, has no updates since departure from The Bermuda Tri-i-mean Orlando. So... uh, super-dooper. Can't wait to see how this plays out.[SimpleSig]©
