It turns out all of my whining and kvetching helped, and the mail gods sent my typewriter to me today.

In the tradition of geekery, I’m going to give you all a proper unboxing. 

I looked at this really closely and realize that the seller actually lost $2 shipping this thing, and that’s before you include supplies.

Exceedingly well packaged (and I’m not even making a self-aggrandizing joke out of that!)

That styrofoam got all over the place. It doesn’t seem to have stuck in the works anywhere. 

Welcome home. You’re already loved.
