    I am in the same boat as you!...except mine is here in my house!!! only wrapped for christmas by my wife so I can't even "sneak". She knows me all to well. I kept beggin her to just let me "test it to see if anything was wrong"..the other day she tested it for me while I was at work and wrapped it up..said yup it works great now you can wait till christmas day...in the meantime I spend a LOT of time reading almost everything here in the forums, it's a new addiction trying to learn all that I can before I even have it in my hands..oh and random trips to staples and best buy just to play with one a bit while its on the shelf...
    In the meantime I reccomend you to buy this nice book " Blackberry Playbook Companion " by Matthew Miller, and savour the delights of the wait. You will be my hero if you are able to wait until Christmas eve to open your gift... !

    The subject line is bordering on epic.
    I was overly excited when I picked up my PlayBook at OfficeDepot on black friday,then having to work all day.....it was excruciating.
    WOW bordering on epic and all I did was thunked it up! Who Knew?

    Love it! Woo hooo!! sharing your excitement Pouring down a box of frosted flakes!
    I was hopping for some Capin Crunch!

    If you act this way now from just ordering it... I can only imagine how you'll be when it arrives and you boot that baby up!

    I imagine , followed by and then as you concentrate hard enough while playing one of the premium games.
    SO... what your saying is that things will only get worse and then when I think I just can't take it any more, I will arrive at my moment of Zen?

    The last time I was this excited is when I drove my MINI Cooper off the lot!

    The question is who is going to wait longer?
    Yea the subject line is pretty good... It just came to me... Who Knew?
    Yeah ... another MINI owner with a PlayBook! Got a motorcycle? That would make it a trifecta.

    I can't claim that one A moment of Zen comes from the "Daily Show".

    No sorry I don't have a motorcycle At one time I wanted a Vespa Until I found out that only people who don't have drivers license ride motor scooters...

    Pass me some Rocky Roads! My PlayBook arrives on Monday!
    Congrats your moment of Zen is almost here! I'm so jealous I hope you enjoy it!

    I am still "testing" my Xmas present to be sure EVERYTHING works. I am a bit slow with the process and don't estimate completion until Dec 26 The BT key board remains unopened to put under the tree but tbe Otter Box was put on tonight.

    I think only my TRS80 was as exciting to get (my Dell PDA was a close second tbough)

    Have ya seen the thread about the class action law suite? The dude has "Lawyered Up" and suing RIM/Globalware Solutions for bad customer service! OMG!

    Uncontrollably ROFLMFAO

    REALLY? everyone needs to take a chill pill... It just an electronic gadget! For most of us it's an expensive toy, but it's really COOL! I need a PB like I need a hole in my head. It's not ER, no one dies when they don't get PB... Unless it's need in the ER then someone could die.. You get the idea...

    WHAT A HOOT!

    Not corny at all to me. I've had my 64gb pb since the week after launch. It's been great and is with me always for both work and play! But I may not be in a credible position to offer support: I left for work Tuesday morning, drove half way there (14miles) and realized I didn't have my pb. I had forgotten to put it back in my bag the previous night (I leave it in my bag when not in use so I don't forget it). So of course I HAD to turn around, and drive back home to get it. Silly? Maybe. But I could not imagine going through my work day without it. I absolutely depend on it especially with the bridge functionality (calendar, email...), and also use it for meeting notes, etc. It's certainly not the perfect tool (yet), but I've made it work for me and have no regrets. Corny? Not by my standards.....and yes, I've hugged my pb today, after my husband....

    And to the OP, I hope you ENJOY IT at least as much as the rest of us PB-ers! Now, no more sugar for today; you're wearing us out!

    I just got my charging dock today. As I sit here, posting from my PC, I have my PB sitting next to me, playing the movie, "Time Bandits," on Amazon Prime. This is so cool!

    Yeah. Isn't this better than the relentless "RIM is going under any day now, all its devices are duds, and you BB lovers are a bunch a schmucks" threads?

    Ive finally received my PlayBook yesterday in the mail! When I got home I saw the dreaded FedEX tag on the door I missed the delivery...an hour later there's a knock at the door and it FedEx!! The lady said she was driving past my house again and saw I was home!!!! I thanked her up and down and all over the place! Now my only problem is, although I ordered it, it's supposed to be a X-Mas gift from my wife and she said I can't open it until X-Mas. Needless to say, I've been sneaking some alone time with my PlayBook when no one is around. Its awesome, I cant wait for Xmas!!!!!
