Who else can't sleep the night before their fancy new gears arrive?

I have a BMC Ultradac arriving tomorrow and knowing me, I'll be awake all night. I'll be lucky if I get 3 hrs of sleep. 


@waytoomuchstuff haha TY and I agree with you. Things like this bring out the kids in us.

Also I'm like you. I turn on some universe stuffs and I fall asleep before I even try to fall asleep. My go-to was Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey with Neil Degrasse Tyson before netflix removed it. The Quantum series with Brian Green is also incredibly ENTERTAINING and sleep-inducing at the same time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

I believe it's called Exploring Quantum History with Brian Greene. Not 100% sure. 


I'm nodding off just reading your reference to "Exploring Quantum History".  I'm brewing some coffee as we speak.  Got a lot of day left.  

Those "universe stuffs" programs can be a bit of a mine field.  While mostly calm (read: boring) some of them involve big things blowing up with frequent flashes of light.  It's a bit like trying to go to sleep with a strobe light going off.  So, I've learned to exclude titles that involve "creation", "demise", "destruction", etc.  Just sayin'.

The plural of "gear" is "gear". I did get fancy new gears on my Pinarello Dogma once though. I could not sleep the night before either. 

I took delivery of my brand new Boulder 2160 power amp on Saturday. Definitely a restless night the night before. Then i was up hours before normal, cleaning house, dusting my kit, full of nervous energy awaiting the big arrival, plus friends to lift it in. I put on my best clothes,  even shaved this winter's beard off; i did save for three whole years, fully half of my income every month, just for this moment.

Amp arrived....absolutely ecstatic, please see my write up on WBF.

What i can say, is that once evening came, i was happy but exhausted and had an early night. I then had one of my best night's sleep in memory; i guess fulfilling a long held dream will do that to you☺

Anticipation. I’ve had it for 45 years, excited while waiting for every piece of gear ever arrived!
