Who knew a UPS Delivery Confirmation email could be so exciting? After getting the email early Tuesday morning, I’m not embarrassed to say that I spent the rest of the day bouncing around and grinning like a goof-ball, so thrilled was I with just the idea of finally seeing our comic in print.
My plan was to find someone to film me exuberantly opening the package, beaming like a kid on Christmas, and maybe cracking a joke or two, in the hopes that some of my excitement would rub off onto you folks out there in internet-land.
Instead I somehow ended up in one of the quiet study halls at my school (I’m a grad student), holding my camera-phone with one hand and a pocket-knife with the other, attempting to use ninja-stealth to open our print order as quietly as possible.
Oh well. Not the exuberant and charming video I’d hoped, but at least I documented the occasion. And it is still sort of goofy in its own way. AND I’M STILL EXCITED! WE’VE GOT A COMIC BOOK! YAY!
