Yay!  No rush, obviously, but looking forward to seeing what you get!

Yay!  And, technically, Jimbo has only had it once... having it at the start doesn't count, because he only put things in, he didn't get to take anything out.  I'm not signing him up for him, but I definitely think he should go again.  *nudge*
I'm going to jump in again later, right now I've got too much stuff being mailed and having to go back. I've started buying some RC stuff and there's a lot of packages involved.  I'm trying to keep the amount of stuff I'm buying low key and another package isn't going to help.

hahah!  I'm sure your wife is a very patient and understanding woman, but sometimes you make it sound like she's the parent and you're the teen sneaking cigarettes behind the garden shed.  :P

It's even harder now that the 14 Year old is getting smarter and she loves to give me a hard time. Last night at dinner she was like "How much are you spending on that, why do you get to keep spending money on your Christmas present for the next two months "
I immediately started talking about sending her to Germany to learn German for a few weeks.

Oooh, she's not your ally, is she?  She's going to need hush money.  hehe  Hobbies are so expensive, aren't they?

(But isn't the obvious answer, "I get to keep spending money on my Christmas presents because I make the money!" ?)

Stock Answer : You may have noticed that I am not a 14 Year old.

For anything having to do with computers and especially IPHONES :
I was using these things before you were born! Before I could play with my first mobile phone I had to change your diapers.

KoD, did you open the parcel yet?  Find anything interesting in there?  I know it's only been three days, so don't let me pressure you.  I just wanted to know if you'd had a chance to look inside yet.  :)

I bet she’s struggling to decide from all the great stuff in there!  :D

Maybe we should make it a rule that every time the parcel-holder apologizes for how long they have the parcel, they have to pay a forfeit...  :P

Take your time, KoD!  We get impatient to see what people pick because it's fun to see the items, but otherwise, we don't mind how long it takes.  It'll get there when it gets there.  :)

We would ALL have a penalty.  Let’s be honest.  No one looks forward to a trip to the post office.  Unless signing for something really exciting.  Even then, you are annoyed you missed the attempted delivery!
