Good Morning !
*sips coffee… slowly.. stalling…*
So – the good news is my first box arrived from BEA yesterday afternoon. Super SQQQUUUEEEEE’s heard throughout Brainerd Minnesota.
And uhhhh… the bad news, or perhaps I should say super geeky news… is that I had an idea to announce it’s arrival. Bear with me while you watch the short video:
and as if that wasn’t bad enough…. I did it a second time….
Yup. I did that.
Anyway…. lets forget about the box. Let’s talk about what was in the box. 😀
