    Every time I see one of your numerous frowny face posts, I keep thinking, "No one ever pays me in gum. :("

    Hey, I almost didn't recognize you--did you get a haircut or shave your mustache or something?

    If you're referring to my avatar, yes, I shaved my mustache and then turned into a wildcat.

    Edit: Wait a minute, are you keeping an eye on me for some specific, shipping related reason...?

    I can neither confirm nor deny that I may or may not be the one who is or is not shipping to you.
    Actually, with this one and the NOOB BIF, seen a lot of you in the past month or so.

    I think I know who's shipping to me. Not totally sure, but mostly sure.... we'll see! Can't wait regardless!

    I have cruised through the posts to over analyze hints and twice I thought I figured out who was shipping to me only to then get a detail that proved me wrong haha. I hope you are correct. If you are, you are a smarter man than I.

    HA, very true. I almost joined the stout bif you're in too, just low on beer funds at the moment. I'll return the familiar mustachioed avatar once I win the March Madness Survivor BIF.

    IF somehow we meet in the Final Four and IF by some miracle of Apollo Miami beats K State, I'll change my avatar for no shorter than 1.5 weeks to a customized ode to the glory of jaminjohnson.

    It's been a pretty unproductive afternoon so far, as I sit here staring out the window waiting, hoping to see a FedEx truck come pulling up. UPS has been and gone, nothing for me. *sigh*

    Got a box! My apologies to Joe aka "youbrewidrink" for my being so hard to shop for. But for claiming to be "completely fucked," you done good with this one. :grinning:

    Glass:
    - St. Arnold "2012 Pumpkinator" mini-shaker
    - New Belgium goblet (already have these, but no harm, because...)
    - Boulevard "Smokestack" retired vintage chalice (year on this?)
    - Duck-Rabbit snifter (d'oh! Great find, but I just got some of these...but no worries, some lucky individual will get one in the next BIF, and besides...)
    - De Molen mini stem glass (don't know how you managed this one, but De Molen stuff is a major want for me!) ... (and this particular one is tremendous)

    Swaggage:
    - Squatters frisbee
    - Magic Hat goodies
    -- bottle opener
    -- layering spoon (not sure what you'd use it for on No.9 though :wink: )
    -- pendant / Mardi Gras beads (will throw these at the wife when she walks through the door today)

    Just unpacked a killer box from Delaware, not sure from who but he killed it. Was a bit nervous when I seem it was from Delaware but there's some gems in here for sure.
