I find this to be artistic. Considering the process involded in drafting it.

This is not a math problem:

A package going to Oregon was delivered yesterday.

A package going to New York was delivered yesterday.

A package going 45 minutes north will be delivered later today.

Hi Jacob!  Glad to be able to pop into your world on a whim.  :D

The pic you posted doesn't show up for me... did it disappear, or is it just me?

Kathleen, I see you've got your warm fuzzies on... Are you actually wearing socks??  Must be a cold one if so.  Enjoy!!

Wow thanks for the post Robert!

I'm glad it made it there safely. I had the postmaster help me design the packaging.

I thought the blue envelope was a good color for this years trends. And the circular shipping label was no extra cost. 

Which I'm glad you didn't post; because of your personal info.

I printed a circular shipping label with a general address on it. I'll post it when I have the chance. (It's "coming soon")

The next product labels will fit even be better. I found a better source, and size, but didn't want to hold up the orders any longer.

That's the same reason I shipped the instructions with the back side missing the bottom blue bar.

Printers were a three day thing there. *Snarf*

Did you hold the black stone up to the window? It looks like an old green screen computer monitor; with black bezels.

I shot a short commercial today, and have been tickling my calculator. I'll provide an update for my backers very soon.

Kim, 

Thanks for coming!

The picture with my logo showed up on my phone; while I was logged out.

I posted some pictures on my amazon page. =]

Thanks Kathleen!

I bet you designed your attire to vent all your heat out your pant legs. That would get around needing socks.

Socks?  What are socks?  Not these feet...no way!

Here is a picture showing you how much I like socks....

This isn't from this year...but...it's always good to wake up those feet now and then.

Jacob:

I actually wanted to show you that my envelope arrived in near-pristine condition so I took a picture with one of my daughter's unicorn bandages occluding the address. My daughter also ran off with my beautiful stones from you because she decided they needed to go to the faeries in their indoor village (her outdoor faerie village is larger but currently under 2 feet of snow). From my brief view the stones were gorgeous - a really fun addition to a great Kickstarter reward.

Here's one more pic that shows the distinctive round label a little better. Great job with the attractive and secure packaging - it clearly helps to have friends at the post office!

Lol! That's so ADORABLE Robert! I'm glad I was able to bring joy to the family. =]

Thanks again for the pic post; nice touch with the dark border, and redaction techniques.

I'm working on a list of updates. They'll be available in a few days.

Listen about 20 minutes in; when Nintendo gets a ruling in their favor, Atari has to remove all product from store shelves, but the ruling is delayed; so Atari doesn't have to, yet~ish

The idea being that Atari did bad things to stop nintendo from doing bad things.

Sure thing Michelle. I want to say Elizabeth talks about her cupcake rack in that episode too, but I don't remember if it was that particular one or not. 

...I've been consuming a lot of media related content lately; in an effort to learn how to reach out to them.
