Can't wait, can't wait!!! Tomorrow the big brown truck will be bringing my new studio lights. I just ordered Alienbees. I ordered the Digibee kit with B800's, 2 stands and 2 48 inch umbrellas. Today I picked up the Sekonic L-358 light meter. I'm soooooo exited I feel like a lil kid at Christmas time!!!

Got a scare from UPS. They delivered my package yesterday. They dropped off 2 boxes. ONLY the light heads. To say I was PO'd is an understatement. I'm doing a shoot with my partner tomorrow and paid for 2 day shipping, cost me $120 extra. I called ALienbees and they showed the OTHER 2 boxes as on the truck out for delivery. Problem was that my UPS guy never comes after 5:30. It's now 6:15. I'm panicking because I was hoping to have everything and get a trial run in BEFORE i had yo use them. I called the UPS depot. I wanted to go there and pick up the remained of my packages. 2 minutes later while on hold with UPS my doorbell rings and it's my UPS guy holding the rest of my stuff!!! I was thrilled to see him!!! LOL

I know how you feel. It always seems that when I'm waiting for something, the UPS guy comes late. My new laptop will be here later today (MacBook Air :) so I'm hoping he comes early. For some reason, since the UPS depot is in my town, they deliver our stuff last. Why can't we be first for a change?

Hope you are having fun with your new toys :))))

Before I got flooded out of New Orleans (hurricane Katrina), the UPS man would always come around 5 PM or later. :mad:

Now that I'm living in (very small) St. Joseph, LA, we get UPS deliveries around noon to 1 PM.:smile:

My UPS deliveries are very consistent. From 11-11:15 AM
Mine were like that where I used to live. It was always 3-3:30pm depending on how many deliveries they had in my apartment complex. Now I never know when they are coming. They can be here at noon, 2pm, or well after 5pm. So I have to stay in all day today so I don't miss them as the thingee online says, "Signature required". Anyone for another cuppa coffee?

My deliveries ups & fed-x are late, usually around 5 to 6pm. Until them im usually watching the tracking (like a mad man) with my pc or droid x. Congrats on the new toys post pic when you get everything unboxed.
