Waiting hurts. Waiting is hard. I know this because my patience has really been tested for the past four months and there’s still two and a half more to go before I can finally say that I have what I want.
Okay, I know I’m being cryptic. I’ll explain.
So as you may be aware, Gravity Falls is one of my favorite shows and I read the real-life version of the show’s Journal 3 back in, I think, November. There was one major thing this journal was missing that the journal on the show had, and it’s the one thing I want to see so badly: invisible ink. I preordered the special edition (which has the invisible ink, a monocle, and a leather cover) back in December and I’m 99.9% sure I’m guaranteed a copy. They sold out in late October, early November, so they expanded the number of books just as I placed an order through Barnes and Noble. I heard Amazon oversold the books, so I’m really relieved I didn’t order from them. But now the creator of the show is releasing photos and videos of some of the pages of the journal and it looks awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever been this antsy waiting for something. Then again, I haven’t really ever had to preorder a book, so this type of waiting is new to me….
I know: I’m a totally spoiled book geek. But I just can’t help it. It cost me $150 and I’m pretty sure I need to go out and buy my own black light for it before it gets here, adding to the price, yet I seriously doubt I’m going to regret spending all this money on something that may seem so trivial. It’s still a book, so I really don’t mind the price. I just mind the wait.
The series 4 premiere of Sherlock in January kept me distracted from this for a while, but now that the release date is as close as it is and series 4 of Sherlock is over, I have nothing to keep me busy until it comes! That’s what’s really frustrating me.
Found this on Tumblr and promptly died laughing.
Just two and a half more months…. please don’t make it feel like too much longer…..
