Wow, Thursday is cutting it close for New Years, I really hope that they actually ship out on Thursday. Thursday-New Years eve is 4 business days. The post office is closed on New Years. TV promised expedited shipping on all preorders. for those of us in cali that basically means overnight shipping when You consider that they were gonna use USPS priority mail to begin with. Not really worried about myself. However I am concerned that oher customers that live futher away will have to wait past New Years. Not gonna lie, if I don't have the cera in hand by Saturday I will be damn near inconsolable.
