    You'll never guess what's in my box

    I have an extremely important delivery coming to my house today. It is so difficult to sit patiently at my desk all day trying not to think about it! I want to go home and jump up and down and release balloons into the air and shout and shake up a bottle of champagne and squirt it in my mouth! OOOOO blasted blasters!

    Instead, I must remember that I am an adult. I have responsibilities. Must. Stay. At. Desk. Pick up delivery after hours. Everything will be okay.

    WOW! You're getting a copy of Civilization 5 sent to you, along with my lost rapidograph pen set missing since 1995? Color me impressed!

    My guess its a box o'monkeys. I hope this box o'monkeys is better than the last one I got. Those were mean biting poop-throwing monkeys!

    Gasp! According to FedEx's shipment tracking system - it was loaded onto a truck and left for delivery 15 minutes ago! The agony. What to do what to do what to do.

    If I posted what I wanted to post, based on the thread title and the squirting champagne, I'm pretty sure I'd get the ban hammer. Or at least a yellow card.

    If it's from these guys, I'd actually be very surprised that you're so excited about it.

    [edit] You just have to be subtle about it, WSU. [/edit]
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Box of rocks ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Is it wrapped in plain brown paper so as not to raise suspicions?

    Is it an APA membership welcome package?

    Is it an all expense paid vacation to Rio - in a box?

    Is it contraband?

    Is it a bread box?

    BTW, It's "sparkling wine" if it's not from the Champagne region of France.
