All that typing and replying, I almost forgot that I had to gather up a bunch of crap, stick it in a box, and ship it!

That said, I will see Harbor Freight sells a sonic screwdriver and get it done.
I have a sonic spork. Will that help?

Damn, that's great! I have a 13 year old daughter who can quote just about any Dr. Who line, I know what she's going to find in her Christmas stocking!

Speaking of passing things around, I wonder if txvintage still has "the hat?"

World's first bicycle helmet and aphrodisiac.

Heck, you're in.

Please read rule #2 . The box you receive is the box you'll ship.

If the box is in turrible shape, pick up a new one of same size and shape at your local post office. Over 3 1/2 years of shipping crap back and forth across the US has optimized the shape.

The Crapmaster has spoken!

Looks like there may have been a cat toy or two in there. If not, surely after it leaves Chris' hands. And mine.

Glad to see a box on the move. Warms my heart

I have the box.. no one else can have the box, it's my precious! No I kid, but we've been having very wet weather and curing decals hasn't exactly been fun.. I'm hoping to have some fully cured tomorrow and have the box out Tuesday.. yada yada yada.. I may end up over the 10 day cap but that's okay too, I more just want to get these in the box and it sent out at this point.

I was pretty sure you were making decals, no way I was going to give you the barking chihuahau treatment. Those decals are one of the things that make the box o' crap special.

The Crapmaster has given you special dispensation, not to be asked for by others! Except @Drillium Dude , who, as a former Crapmaster, and one who will be known into eternity as the Crapmaster di tutti Crapi. He gets to do anything he wants with the box.

Hey, it's 5 days after Dec. 8th, shouldn't I be checking the mail?
