so fastpencil overnighted me the 81 books they promised (though dave from fastpencil emailed me that the printer might not have put them all in there, AWESOME) but unfortunately the day they were to be delivered was friday the 31st, new year's eve. meaning i didn't get them friday, saturday, or sunday. so much for receiving them quickly and efficiently.
it's monday, 11:52 am my time. stilllllll waiting. and waiting. i'm going to power through these things when i finally get them. thank you guys for being so patient. sigh sigh sigh.
