YAY! TOY! aka "I am such a geekboy."
How do you know you're a geek? When you get excited about buying new toys like a kid on Christmas morning, and you can't wait for UPS to deliver it. Especially if you keep checking the tracking info, even though you know it won't update more than a couple of times a day.

I snagged a new Sony Clie NZ90, plus Wi-Fi module, plus extra charger, plus two 128MB MemorySticks off of eBay last night, and it was sent today. And now I'm acting giddy, excited about having a new toy coming to play with.

Maybe it'll keep me from talking about TiVo for 5 minutes. ;-)

I am: giddy giddy

Now ask me how grumpy I am that I won't be getting my iPod until Monday. :(

I'm still hitting refresh on the fedex page every couple of minutes...

Dude, suck. I thought they were overnighting it and everything.

I know mine is UPS Ground, so it'll show when it shows... And I probably won't be home, so then I'll have to redirect it to work.

When did it ship? Where did it ship from? What is the capital of Assyria? Answer me these questions three...at least the first two, and I can tell you when you'll most likely get it. I'm good like that...and I work for the Brown Army...

Illinois, but it hasn't shipped yet - at least the tracking just shows "Billing Information Received". He gerated a shipping label online, but it looks like he hasn't dropped it off yet, or they haven't picked it up yet, either way.

Well, from Illinois, I believe it's 4 days. That means Thursday, maybe Friday. You'll know it's shipped when the tracking info includes an "origin scan". That's the first scan, when it's getting loaded into a trailer inbound to Worcester.

Grar! I figured out why my iPod order was cancelled, at least, and have ensured that the new order will go through. And, I discovered today that I can't get a new cell phone without jumping through bunches of hoops and changing my cell phone number. Grar.
