    Alright, I think Im just about ready to ship mine out. But...

    Hint#3: Estimated delivery time is 5 business days to reach my targets doorstep. So, I might wait until next Monday to ship, so that it gets there without having to sit over the weekend. Plus, itll give me a chance to see if i can find something else until then. :D

    Federal Fucking Express if you need them...dropping a box off one day earlier than scheduled. Check your front porches, someone got delivered about two hours ago.

    The bar has been set...beat it.
