Once I get the shipping notice - I may have to request a day off work to spend time fondling and caressing the K18; taking glamour shots, posing with picturesque backdrops, destroying the greenbelt, getting dirty looks of confusion by the girlfriend...ya know...the standard routine for any new CPK offering.
Either way, my anticipation and excitement has not faltered one iota. If anything, it has grown stronger since Chad started posting pics of the matching pants to go with it.
Oh, you'll now. The heavens will split open raining down fire and brimstone, the seas and rivers will run red, the flora and fauna will wither and cower with fear, cataclysmic events will occur worldwide.Man I really need to know when you get yours, because mine is two spots after!

Some pine and oak hacks:
