The box arrived. I'd been waiting for it, and the girls who work in the front office told me as soon as they saw the Fed-Ex truck pull into the yard.
The driver of the truck moved the package to the front of his truck and then sat yappin' on his cell phone.
"C'Mon Man! What are you doin'? Bring Me My Damn SEA MONKEYS!" I was telepathically yelling at him. His skills in telepathy were wanting, probably short-circuited by cell phone microwaves.
Eventually he did bring the delivery inside. I signed his little computerized clipboard, and I tore into the box immediately.
Little plastic pillows of air, some bubble wrap and SO MUCH Sea Monkey goodness. I couldn't wait to get it all out of the box and I did so, right there in the front office as my co-workers giggled at me.
Yeah, so I'm a big kid, especially when it comes to Sea Monkeys, and doubly so when it comes to FREE Sea Monkeys.
I knew I'd set up a pretty nice blog here, I'm proud of it, but boy oh boy, that great guy, George C Atamian, (the Sea-Monkey ReAnimator) sure must've been impressed. He sent me the mother lode.
Lets see, I received:
2 Sea Monkey Nursery Sets
1 Pirates Gold Set
1 Sea Monkey Detective Set
1 Glowing Stones Set
1 Wrist Aquarium Set
1 Pink girly Locket Set (for that special lady in my life)
1 almost classic set with a portable key chain aquarium
1 Hang Ten set
1 Sea Monkey "Shaky" (bobble head)
1 X-Large t-shirt
and 1 Birthday Set
The Birthday set is not yet available to the public. It's everything you need for a kids birthday party. Sea Monkey tablecloth, plates, Cups, Napkins, Straws, invitations, A Sea Monkey Candle, Sea Money Crowns and best of all EIGHT SEA MONKEY SETS! So every kid goes home with some instant pets. Look for some photos of this one in use soon as I'm inviting my nephew and some friend's kids to test it out.
I shared the wealth, passing kits on to some friends who have promised photos of their Sea Monkey experiences. I myself am holding off on hatching until I get packet of Sea Medic, Vitamins and other good stuff from Transcience, but I will be trying these goodies out soon and I have my video camera at the ready.
Yeah, I'm a big ol' geek, but I'm a happy geek.
